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 or pets allowed.

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.

SB VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at the West Beach Retreat during our Spring break this April. We found it to be the perfect spot to enjoy the town, the beach, and the lovely almost tropical ambience of Santa Barbara. The Street was quiet, the neighborhood lovely, and the apartment was spacious and met all of our needs. It truly was walking distance to many of the places we wanted to visit, including the beach, the harbor, bike rentals, and even a good number of restaurants! We would definitely stay here again!
