Whether you are visiting for the weekend or staying for a month the location of this cottage is hard to beat when it comes to taking in Santa Barbara’s downtown area.

There are 2 remodeled bathrooms and a bedroom on each level (including a private master suite upstairs).

Great house. Great location

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and the location. It was everything the listing said. Beautiful little yard. what little we needed from manager was provided quickly and cheerfully. Only problem: too close to too many great restaurants. Gained 5 lbs. over the week.

Charming great location!

  • 5 of 5

I came here with my sisters for a weekend getaway. Everything was so clean when we arrived! We were hoping for a tranquil getaway and this place was perfect. The cottage was charming, the neighborhood was so quiet and peaceful and walking distance to state street. We spent our mornings going for runs on the beach and the afternoons eating McConnell's ice cream. Counter productive but hey, it makes us happy. Location was great for both. It was so nice not to hop in the car every time we wanted to go somewhere . Thank you for a perfect backdrop for our sisters' retreat!

Perfect for our Girls getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our girls getaway weekend. There were 5 of us- just enough room in the house. The decor was nice and the home is fully stocked with whatever you need. It was super clean and we had no problems whatsoever.

This home is within walking distance of State Street- perfect for shopping and dining. Its a short drive to Sterns Wharf and the beaches. We also took a drive up to Solvang- about 45 minutes away.

The girls and I highly recommend this property and would love to stay here again should we make Santa Barbarba a destination.

The management company was super easy to work with- no problems there either.

Very cute cottage with lots of thought put into the space

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple rented this cottage for a weekend getaway. The house is so charming with lots of amenities for all. We were very comfortable and felt right at home the minute we entered the cottage. The home has been done up very well with nice appliances, paint colors and bedding! I travel for my job so I am very picky about hotels and rentals that are clean and with updated (newer) bedding. They have movies, music, games, etc. if you want to stay in and a lovely backyard if the weather is nice. The walk to State Street (main strip with shops and restaurants) is not bad at all, very easy walk and a nice area. The size worked out perfectly for two couples since there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. We will definitely rent this place again and use Vacation Rentals of Santa Barbara as they were great agency to work with!

You will not be disappointed in this cottage. Entire cottage is well stocked and so delightful. Amazed on how clean this cottage is. Had parking which was great. Walk to State Street which is a must. Many wonderful restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Traveled to the piers which is not far. The scenery is so beautiful you cannot stop taking pictures. Plenty of restaurants as well. Recommend taking the trolley tour of Santa Barbara. You learn a great deal about this beautiful city. Of course, you can do wine testing which is a must. Went to the Farmers Market and found that very interesting. Vendors must grow their produce in Santa Barbara and be from Santa Barbara. A unique market. Fresh produce. Not a typical farmers market. Everything is not far from this cottage. Definitely would stay there again and recommend it highly. This was first time in Santa Barbara and was not disappointed. Owners definitely took pride in making you feel welcome in this cottage.
