Santa Barbara House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

Award winning 3/3, gorgeous city/ocean views, close to amenities. Check out the reviews! Only available for since 10/12.

Unobstructed views overlooking the city, ocean and channel islands were maximized during a second story addition and complete remodel of this family home in keeping with its original 1904 character. Hand-crafted elements, fixtures, finishes and top-line details were used throughout as televised on tv's THIS OLD HOUSE program.

The beautiful decoration of the home and gardens, including the art and antiques, combine to present a very well appointed, comfortable home in the fine arts and crafts tradition. The outstanding views are enjoyed from the master, master deck, guest room, living room, entrance, office, deck and covered porch/outside living room.

Location

The location is perfectly situated, a short distance to the mission, historic parks, kids world, downtown and the 25c state street shuttle to the marina, beaches, shopping, zoo, and picturesque Montecito. This luxurious home is lovingly filled with quality, taste and all the amenities for your visit to Santa Barbara, 'America's Riviera'.

The remodeled home

This spacious 3 bedroom/3 bath home, with, family room, dining room, office and chef’s kitchen, also has an outside living room on its 15’ x 20’ covered porch as well as 3 patios, & terraced flower and veggie gardens. The luxurious home is located in the perfect a spot to ensure your visit is comfortable and unforgettable. Quality details are throughout, inspired by a love of the arts and crafts tradition including art & antiques to enhance your vacation experience.

Chef’s kitchen w/ prep & eating bar

All the equipment and appliances one could need are located in this cheery, cherry kitchen. Hardwood floors welcome you into the space where the family can just hang out or prepare meals for dining in the adjacent dining room or al fresco on the many patios or on the front porch to enjoy the views.

Master bedroom & upper deck

The romantic 1000 sq. Foot second-story master suite (king bedroom, en-suite, & library) has vaulted ceilings, venetian plaster (throughout the home), and is completely private and separate from the downstairs living areas. The sunny, well-appointed bedroom has a stunning view with an attached 14’ x14’ private deck, the perfect place to enjoy a nice morning coffee, sunbathe or enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sail boats, sunset, or just to relax and enjoy the stunning views and serenity. The en-suite master bath has a jacuzzi and soaking tub as well as separate shower, with all in the finishes of the a & c period.

Guest bedrooms

Both guest bedrooms provide queen-sized beds and luxurious linens with plenty of space to stretch out and make you feel at home. These comfortable rooms/suites are located away from one another and from the master, affording more privacy to each guest.

Awards & TV program remodel

The PBS TV program, THIS OLD HOUSE, showcased the transformation of this 1904 charming bungalow into a stunning arts and crafts beauty, now available for the first time. A seven-episode DVD highlights the challenge, and the transformation, of remodeling this home into the award winning showpiece it has become. (Santa Barbara beautiful annual award, TV, books, & magazines.)

This fine craftsman home is lovingly filled with quality, taste, amenities and convenience for your next visit to beautiful Santa Barbara.

I'm a retired woman who remodeled a classic bungalow with the cameras rolling for 7 episodes of THIS OLD HOUSE, Emmy winning home show seen by over 10 million viewers.

Jan purchased this house in 1973

The views are amazing; home bright and cheery, large yard & gardens are inviting and the home's location is superb- only blocks to downtown, mission, rose garden, historic parks and theaters. Beach is 17 blocks away.

The historic remodel blends classic Arts & Craftsman details with lovely art and antiques to create a beautiful yet comfortable home to enjoy with family and friends.

BEAUTY, COMFORT AND VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of four older adults, eager to explore Santa Barbara and area. 1616 Grand was the perfect place to stay. It is a gorgeous house, attractively and comfortably furnished and fitted with all the equipment you could need and with a beautiful garden to boot. Jan's directions allowed us to find the place easily. It was a comfortable and interesting walk to the Mission or to State Street. We enjoyed side trips to the wineries of SB County and to Ojai. Our Day One walk along the Sunday display of art and crafts along the beach was a great intro to the city. We enjoyed many fine restaurants, but ate most of our evening meals at home, enjoying the well equipped kitchen and the fine local wines we'd bought. Jan was easy to get in touch with and always helpful. A highly recommended rental home.

LOVELY SANTA BARBARA HOME

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property twice in 2 months!!! It is every bit as comfortable and clean as described. This is an ideal set up for 3 couples as each bedroom has it's own bathroom and the home is spacious enough for 6 adults to gather comfortably...though you'll be hard-pressed to leave the front porch and the spectacular views! The owner was so very accommodating to our schedule and needs. The location is ideal for a Santa Barbara getaway. I highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again.

AMAZING HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the house over 4th of July and had the best time-- there were 3 couples. The house was spectacular-- better than the photos. The view is amazing-- we spent hours on the front porch just hanging out, talking, sleeping and taking it all in. The house is just 5 mins up the hill from the beach and 2 mins from town. We had lunch just up the hill from the house at El Encanto-- which was really special. We would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jim so very much for the review. I'm so glad you and your guests enjoyed THE GRAND and Santa Barbara. Staying for a whole month must have been relaxing and now you're a 'local', right? You ate at all our best restaurants and I'm jealous! It was great sharing the evening with you and your friends at our Yacht Club too. Come back again! You are most welcome. jan

CHARMING AND FUN WITH A GORGEOUS VIEW

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful Santa Barbara experience. This house is perfectly located close to State street and the heart of Santa Barbara. (It's also a nice little run to the beach on those cool, beautiful mornings.) The house amenities were plentiful, Jan has thought of everything. We picked lemons from the tree out back and made lemonade with some of her tools. But our favorite part of the entire house was the front porch with the comfy couches. We shared so many laughs and maybe even a few drinks out on that porch while looking out into the water. We can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Dear Lara and friends, I so appreciate that you enjoyed my home and location with your Santa Barbara wedding party. Yes, I agree, the front porch/outside living room is perfect for entertaining at any time of the day! I often say 'hello' and even 'goodnight' to my day as the lights of Santa Barbara reminding how very lucky I am to be there above the city I love, in this very special home! Thank you for noticing the comfortable, casual atmosphere I had hoped to achieve! Come back and visit again! Best wishes, jan
