SANTA BARBARA BEACH GETAWAY - 2 BLOCKS TO BEACH & TOWN

Santa Barbara Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Welcome to our Santa Barbara Beach Getaway which is the best value for a 2BR/2BA in Santa Barbara. It is unmatched for its location, quality and price!

There are 200+ 2BR/2BA vacation rentals (780 in total) in the 'Santa Barbara Area' and of these, 125 are supposed to be in 'Santa Barbara'. So how do you chose - location, location, location! And then compare our quality and price....

We are not in Carpentaria, Goleta, Summerland or Montecito. We are also not in the suburbs of Santa Barbara such as San Roque, Mission Canyon, Los Positas etc.

We are in the coveted Historic West Beach area, steps from the beach, Las Banos Public Pool, Stearns Wharf, Harbor, world-class dining, and downtown shops, including our own local farmers market. We are not next to the railroad tracks, highway or on a commercial thoroughfare.

Leave your car and associated traffic/parking worries behind. We even offer RARE off street reserved parking.

The Beach Getaway resides in a historical turn of the century building and retains the charm of the day’s bygone. It has been lovingly restored to reflect Santa Barbara's style including hand cast plaster, 10 feet vaulted ceilings and Waterford fireplace giving it both a romantic and European feeling.

The large and private courtyard is encased with green shrubbery and offers Italian fountain, dining table and chairs, chaise lounges and stainless steel BBQ to enjoy the local favorites.

The sparkling open and fully equipped kitchen was designed with high quality construction, including granite countertops, hardwood floors and custom cabinets that are complimented with all appliances: Refrigerator, stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave and washer and dryer. Its granite counter tops include a dining area for 5.

The warm and cozy living room has hardwood floors, Waterford fireplace, pull out couch, 46' TV/DVD and a view of the private courtyard through the french glass door.

The queen bedroom has a sliding glass door with garden view, that leads to a private patio and is accessible by this bedroom only. The second bedroom has a king bed, small desk and wireless internet throughout.

Each bedroom is complimented with a full bath, each with a shower/tub combination. The bathrooms offer limestone floors, granite countertops and French white tiles.

When you book with us, you are booking directly with the owners, which means you are not dealing with a management company, or a 3rd party call center, or a computerized mobile application. Often times the 3rd party does not live in town or even know the property. We know our properties intimately, as we both own and manage them, and have a 15 year track record. Our seventeen independent FIVE star reviews speak for themselves, including our cleanliness. Also our history as a vacation rental ensures that the property will be delivered. Unfortunately there are some fraudulent offerings and sometimes rental agencies have the ability to 'substitute' your property with another.

Upon booking, directions are emailed along with our contact information, Restaurant Recommendations, Winery and Activities Recommendations and Welcome Notes providing detailed information about the Beach Getaway. In this way, you can drive right to the Getaway, which has a lock box where you’ll use your unique code to enter. There is no need to set up an appointment. Inside, you'll enjoy premium amenities: shampoo, soaps, paper & cleaning products, and 5 star quality bath and beach towels, linens and cleaniness.

And we offer complimentary champagne upon your arrival.

While priced slightly higher than most 1BR/1BA’s, the Beach Getaway offers a comfortable stay for 2 couples or a small family. Most of the single hotel rooms are priced higher and yet our Beach Getaway offers so much more.

Or you can upgrade to our Santa Barbara Ocean Getaway VRBO #20308 which offers approximately 1/3 more square footage and slightly higher amenities. Or rent both, which are side by side, for 4 bedrooms and 4 baths.

We welcome a comparison to the 200+ vacation rentals and Hotels as we are unmatched in location, quality & price!

My husband and I own and manage our property which enables us to give attention to detail and to our guests. We work hard to retain our 50% repeat business and it shows in the warmth, cleaniness and quality of our property.

Melanie Cava purchased this condo in 2003

This is truly the way to enjoy Santa Barbara. We are walking distance to all - the beach, harbor, public pool, Stearns Wharf and the main street downtown (State Street) that hosts the best restaurants, shops and theaters. We also offer rare private reserved parking, enabling you to park you car freely. Why waste time in traffic or looking for parking as parking in Santa Barbara can be a challenge and the highways do experience significant traffic delays. We are located in a residential area, not a commercial thorough fare or next to the rail road tracks or highway. We also offer a large private courtyard with Italian fountain, chaise lounges table and chairs and gas grill, that enable you to relax and enjoy the sun, or cook you local favorites on our gas grill. You will not find a comparable vacation rental when comparing location, quality and price!

FABULOUS!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a week while in Santa Barbara for a wedding and what a wonderful week we had. Only wish we could have stayed longer! The condo was ideal for us and our teenage daughter - fabulous location - everything close by and within walking distance. Beds were so comfy with beautiful linens, kitchen well equipped with everything we may have needed and lots of towels and toiletries provided as well. We would definitely recommend this and would love to return again

GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at the Santa Barbara Beach Getaway. The owners adequately described the property; it is very well maintained and clean with lots of upgrades. Everything was within a short walking distance; the beach, activities and shopping. We really did leave our car and parking worries behind. I'd would definitely book another stay!

SANTA BARBARA ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
This unit far exceeded our expectations in all areas. Does the notion "Under Promise... Over Deliver" ring true here. The unit was spotless, beds comfy really exceptional, location perfect. Close enough to beach and State street but far enough away to be quiet. Train station within 2 blocks worked well for visiting family from LA.

We will be back with regularity!

SPRING BREAK

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful place! The setting was ideal, 2 blocks from the beach, shopping, grocery shopping. The most comfortable bed I ever slept on, I didn't have back pain all week, even though we went kayaking on the ocean! Very comfortable, 2 separate bedrooms, 2 full baths and a living space in-between. Enjoyed the fresh air every evening with the windows open. Bathroom fully equipped with hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner and body wash, how nice! I would love to come back and stay here again!

WOW! CAN I MOVE IN?

  • 5 of 5
What a great find! We booked last minute after another reservation fell through, and we felt so lucky once we arrived.

The building is grand and historic, but the unit was modern inside with updated baths and kitchen. It was spotless and beautifully appointed. Everything was clearly thought out and perfect. Lovely bed linens. Great outdoor seating area. Little touches like a full spice rack, shampoo & conditioner and even fresh sponges under the sink. The kitchen is nicely set up and we enjoyed chatting and cooking together.

The location couldn't be better. I stayed here with my sister and niece and we enjoyed walking to the beach and to State Street. You could even walk from the train station if you didn't want to drive to Santa Barbara - you wouldn't need a car once you got here. But the off-street parking was much appreciated.

Melanie was very professional and a gracious hostess. We hope to return next year!
