Overview

Santa Barbara House 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.

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 rental in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in the cottage which was very comfortable, with a nice bedroom/ living area and verandah. No problem parking right outside and it was a pleasant, easy stroll to the heart of town through a quiet, leafy area and parks. Thanks Barbara for a great stay - we'll be back!

My Ideal Respite

  • 5 of 5

I just returned to Minneapolis from my week's stay in the guesthouse. I place a high value on location, privacy, serenity, cleanliness, quality, and beauty. This lovely place was exactly what I would have dreamt for myself. Additionally, Barbara and Russell were informative and gracious hosts, yet also provided the privacy I so appreciate.

My stay here is already booked for next year.

Away from the Icy East Coast Winter

  • 5 of 5

This comfy guest cottage was just right for our week's stay in Santa Barbara. It is charming, comfortable and clean and included everything we needed when we weren't walking to one of the nearby parks, the Mission or downtown restaurants and sites. The sitting porch is a great place to read a book and rest your feet after all that walking! Very quiet, excellent location.

Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable 10 day stay at Barbara and Russell's cottage in December. The location on a lovely, quiet

residential street was ideal for car-free exploration of Santa Barbara by foot or by catching the frequent bus service just a few blocks away. The cottage was spotless with comfortable bed, kitchen, full bathroom and a good heater for cool nights. Barbara and Russell were friendly, gracious, and helpful hosts and we would highly recommend their cottage as a secure and pleasant base for a couple or solo traveler

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.
