A piece of historic Santa Barbara, this 1920s French tudor is newly renovated and remodeled. Designed by famous California architect Joseph Plunkett who designed the magnificent Fox Arlingon Theatre on State St, according to legend, on the liner of a hotel drawer; this home is now a beautiful luxury getaway filled with all the comforts and conveniences for a perfect vacation in the heart of Santa Barbara.

We rented this home for a month over Christmas and New Year. We were four adults, a toddler, a little dog and we had the best of times! The house is super conveniently located two minutes away from the beach, three minutes away from the grocery stores at La Mesa and 6 minutes away from downtown with all the great restaurants, shopping and museums. It is lovely in every way: quiet surroundings, beautiful views, very nicely decorated, impeccably clean and really comfortable. As per the kitchen, it is a Chef’s dream! The backyard is fully enclosed and my grand-daughter and the dog had a terrific time running all over without us ever worrying about their safety. The owners were very accommodating and more than helpful. They even thought of providing us with a beautiful Christmas tree :-) We would be very happy to stay in that home again and highly recommend it to others.
This luxurious home is even more beautiful than the photos! All was clean & in pristine condition - the beds & pillows were extremely comfortable. The views from the balconies are beautiful & private. We were in town for a family wedding & this home was perfect for our family of 6 adults. We were very happy & would recommend it to others who are fortunate enough to be staying in beautiful Santa Barbara!
From the marble bathrooms to the Grohe fixtures every detail in the house is luxurious. There is Miele vacuum, a fantastic Jenair oven, vases of every size for your flowers, a coffee grinder for fresh ground coffee that you can make in a french press or an automatic machine. There is a reverse osmosis water filter and bowls for your pets. Loved the fabulous big flat screen T.V. with satellite that had lots of premium channels. Throw in the ocean view from almost every room, two balconies, an adorable sun room with a super cozy day bed, very tasteful decor, and CLOSE TO THE BEACH! If you like comfort, luxury, and tasteful surroundings this is the vacation rental for you.
We had a terrific time at this Charming Tudor home in Santa Barbara. It was perfect for our family and my parents for the holidays. The kitchen was amazing and the separate dining room was perfect. We loved the open space and views. We highly recommend this property. Its is in a great quiet neighborhood close to so many amenities, including shopping and the beach.
This is a beautiful home with a great location and all the amenities one could want. The owners were very accommodating and responsive. We had a great time exploring all that Santa Barbara has to offer given the close proximity of the house to everything. Highly recommended.
My wife and I stayed here with two young children, and had a wonderful vacation. The house is ideally situated close to downtown (with all of its restaurants and shopping), Leadbetter Beach (one of the best beaches in Santa Barbara), and the grocery store. The house itself is very charming, spacious, and comfortable. The entire house is decorated in a very classy and sophisticated way, and the gourmet kitchen is fully stocked with everything you might need. There's also a grassy backyard, which is nice for children. We would stay here again and would recommend it to others.
