Santa Barbara House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
This one-story cottage has two bedrooms, one full bath, and enough room for up to eight guests. The sun room has the dinning room table plus a futon, TV, DVD player for guest but it is pretty private when the white drapes are drawn. Built in 1951, this vacation home retains much of its vintage beach-cottage charm, but has been equipped with all the modern amenities you could desire.
Just steps from one of Santa Barbara's most beautiful beachfront parks, this sunny two-bedroom cottage makes a fantastic retreat for a family vacation, romantic weekend, or girls' getaway!
You enter into a cool and breezy living room, where a stylish recliner and comfortable futon sit before a 50" flat screen television with cable and Blu-ray. Kicking back with a cold drink and a good movie is the perfect way to relax after a long day in the sun!
Although Santa Barbara is full of amazing restaurants, the cheery kitchen is fully stocked and waiting in case you prefer to prepare meals at home. In addition to the standard refrigerator, 5 burner gas Stove/Oven, and dishwasher, there are plenty of small appliances, dishes, cooking utensils, and dinnerware.
The extendable dining table sits up to eight in the beautiful sunroom, where walls of windows overlook the lushly landscaped backyard and sliding glass doors allow you to enjoy the fresh breezes as you eat. The sunroom also has a sitting area with another TV and a sleeper sofa,X-box with games and DVD player. Pull the drapes and it is now perfect for extra guests or letting the kids pick their own movie or games in the evenings.
The relaxing master bedroom has a king-sized Sleep Number bed, plus a 37" TV that is hooked up to a DVD player only for an evening of viewing movies from the DVD library, and the second bedroom has a comfortable queen-sized bed with pillow-top mattress. The bathroom is immaculate and offers the charm of its original 1950s tub for long evening soaks.
The spacious backyard has its own 2 person Hammock and 6 person patio dining set, also a smaller cafe table and 2 chairs by the gas grill for summer barbecues, but you may choose to sip your morning coffee in the front yard, looking out at the peaceful ocean views framed by palm trees and the Channel Islands. Your small dog is welcome, but we do ask that you not leave your furry friend unattended in the home. Watch the cruise ships pass by as you make your plans for the day! The house does offer wireless Internet access, so you can easily find all the directions and restaurant reviews you need.
Only three doors down from this lovely cottage, Shoreline Park stretches along the water's edge; a gorgeous staircase leads 81 steps down to Mesa Beach, a particularly scenic and peaceful stretch of sand nestled below the park. At times, you may get the feeling that you have a private beach all to yourself!
Nearby Leadbetter Point, Sterns Warf is 1.6 miles away offers excellent surfing for beginners, with plenty of rental shops located along the beachfront. Experience the water from a more steady perch in a kayak, a popular way to explore the harbor, or book a guided kayak tour out to the sea caves and hidden coves of the gorgeous Channel Islands. Less active types might enjoy a whale watching trip, or landlovers can head to State Street (less than two miles from your front door) for the city's busiest shopping and dining district.
No matter what activities or adventures your Santa Barbara getaway may include, you'll love having this breezy beach cottage to call home at the end of every fun-filled day!
