SUNNY WEST BEACH RETREAT - IDEAL LOCATION!! 1.5 BLKS TO BEACH & STATE STREET!

Santa Barbara Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment with 2 private patios. Walk to beach.

An ideal location, no need for a car. We are only 1.5 blocks from West Beach, State Street, Stearns Wharf, Cabrillo Boulevard, and the Amtrak Train Station. Hop the Electric Shuttle at the Wharf and explore the waterfront and downtown State Street for shopping and dining.

We are a scenic five minute walk to the Yacht Harbor for boating, kayaking, fishing, and dining. This is a lovely spot to enjoy a meal or cocktails while taking in beautiful views of the harbor and the Santa Barbara 'Riviera' mountain scape. Visit us for our annual Harbor & Seafood Festival. Also within walking distance to Santa Barbara's Funk Zone, a sub-culture of artisan shops, hip eateries, nook wine tasting rooms and award-winning microbreweries.

Come enjoy year-round music festivals, wine and food festivals, art shows, and cultural celebrations. We are also a very active community with many sporting events throughout the year. We are close to the start of the Santa Barbara Triathlon.

Santa Barbara is one of Old California's most charming and romantic cities which boasts Mediterranean climate, miles of beaches, palm tree lined streets and beautiful Spanish architecture. If this is your first trip to Santa Barbara, 'The American Riviera', it certainly will not be your last!

West Beach Retreat is a lower, single-level unit of a lovely triplex. No smoking allowed. Note for those with pet allergies: No pets allowed so we are free of those types of allergens.

Nice Apartment in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We are a family with a 15-year-old son and a 12-year-old daughter, and we really enjoyed staying at the West Beach Retreat. The unit is very nice, very clean, and is accurately described in the VRBO description. The location is great! You can easily walk to the beach, Stearns Wharf, Lower State Street, the Funk Zone, and other places. We highly recommend it to anybody who is planning a trip to Santa Barbara.

Great stay in a very nice apartment!

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of four who had a great stay in this nice apartment during three weeks in Santa Barbara. Perfect location, nice and calm neighborhood just minutes away from the beach, the harbor and state street with restaurants and shopping. Nicely furnished, very spacious rooms and we enjoyed the patio and the bbq. The apartment was in fact exactly as described on the web site. We have no complaints at all and would be glad to come back again. The owner is very kind and professional. Many thanks!

Owner's Response: Thank you! It was such a pleasure meeting you and your family. I am so glad you were able to experience the 4th of July in Santa Barbara. WBR, as you now know, is the best spot to enjoy the fireworks since the display took place right off of West Beach. Please do come again.

Ideally located

  • 5 of 5
Comfortable, ideally located unit. 5-minute walk to the pier and Lower State Street restaurants and establishments. Close to a grocery store for those who prefer to cook. Close to the freeway allowing easy hop to UCSB. All in all, could not have found a better location. The owner is easy to work with and full of information about Santa Barbara.
