Santa Barbara Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

On a quiet street in Santa Barbara's best downtown residential neighborhood -The Upper Eastside - this charming guesthouse is in the most perfect location: 4 blocks to State Street where you'll find shops, restaurants, cinemas, museums and 4 blocks to the historic Mission with its lovely Rose Garden. Gorgeous Alice Keck Park Memorial Garden, a Santa Barbara gem, is a 3-minute walk from your door. The beaches, Stearn's Wharf and Harbor are all close by.

Our guesthouse suite suitable for 1 or 2 persons is a classic 1924 California cottage entirely transformed with contemporary amenities yet retaining its authentic original design with wainscoting in all rooms and a beamed ceiling in the bedroom and bathroom. The private entrance adjacent to the kitchen has a small deck with a café table and chairs. You won't hear the hum of the freeway or noise from downtown trains. We invite you to read our reviews and see why this exceptional guesthouse with its location, elegance and serenity is an incomparable best value in Santa Barbara.

There is a 4-DAY MINIMUM to rent. 2 people maximum.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you so much for making our holiday special. Your cottage was very charming and we enjoyed our stay here. You're very lucky to be living in such a beautiful place! When we were walking, we really enjoyed the homes and their yards. Everything from the weather to the trees and plants were wonderful. Thanks for the fresh flowers. You made this place feel like home. We would definitely recommend your place to our friends. Sylvia & Derek from Alberta, Canada

GREAT PROPERTY AND STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastic property in a great location in Santa Barbara. You are walking distance from tons of restaurants and attractions and have easy access to the 101 to go elsewhere. The guesthouse itself is squeaky clean and has everything you need for your stay, including a kitchen if you would like to cook. I was also provided with a nice list of places to eat, of which every one I tried was excellent. Highly recommend this property for a single or couple travelling to the area.

We had a very relaxing stay. It was nice to be within walking distance of town but still feel removed from the hustle and bustle while hanging out at the guest house.
Barbara and Russell were very friendly but also gave us our space. They also had great recommendation for us.

TRULY EXCEPTIONAL

  • 5 of 5
For us this was a first-class property, with warm hospitality from the hosts. Not only do they provide tips on the region, events and restaurants, they shared time with us as if we were old friends. Barbara and Russell offer advice with great discretion, letting guests find their way at their own pace. This was a great place to recover from jet lag, being very quiet; kitchen and bath are fully stocked with quality amenities; it is easy to find, convenient location. Wifi is fast, easy and much better than hotel internet. An ideal choice for self-catering accommodation. We'll definitely be returning.

OUR STAY AT ISLAY

  • 5 of 5
THIS PLACE WAS EXACTLY LIKE DESCRIBED IN THE REVIEWS AND WE LOVED IT. BARBARA AND RUSSELL ARE FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL AND YOUR PRIVACY IS TOTAL. THE IS BOUNTIFUL INFORMATION IN THE BINDER BARBARA HAS MADE FOR VISITORS. BY TAKING THE TROLLEY TOUR THE FIRST MORNING, WE WERE ABLE TO IDENTIFY THINGS THAT WE WANTED TO DO WHILE IN SB. DEE'S WINE TOURS ARE A BARGAIN AND SO MUCH FUN. AN AFTERNOON AT BURRO BEACH AND DINNER AT HENDRI'S, WHICH IS RIGHT THERE, WAS AWESOME AND REASONABLE. WE MADE A RESERVATION WHEN WE GOT TO THE BEACH THEN DINED IN OUR BATHING SUITS AND T SHIRTS AT 5:30. OUR TABLE WAS AS PROMISED, RIGHT ON THE WATER! tHE FRESH FISH WAS AWESOME.
WE BOTH FELT THAT THE RENTAL WAS A TREMENDOUS VALUE AND MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE THAN A HOTEL ROOM.
WE SHALL RETURN!

CHARMING COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this charming cottage in an upscale, quiet neighborhood as a solo female traveller visiting relatives. You are within walking distance of the Historic Downtown district, several parks, and a 5 minute walk to the Santa Barbara Mission. Parking is at your front door, Wifi is reliable, kitchen well outfitted for cooking, if you desire, but you are within walking distance of some fine restaurants.

If you'd like to be within walking distance of Santa Barbara's shopping, movies, restaurants--but would also enjoy being away from it all in the best downtown residential area close to everything-- you won't find a better location than our beautiful guesthouse. Walk to the award-winning Courthouse or the world-class Museum of Art or the Queen of the Missions with its exquisite rose garden. They are all a few blocks away.
