|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This one-story cottage has two bedrooms, one full bath, and enough room for up to six 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!

The Cottage house provided everything one would need from beach to backyard activities, the place is perfect. Especially if you like walking on the beach. To go to the beach for a swim in the ocean expect to travel by car though. The closest beach by foot is spectacularly beautiful but rocky and not safe for swimming.
The location of the Beach Cottage was perfect for us. A short walk to the Mesa with steps down to the beach really made the trip. if you want to go into town it's a 10 minute car ride. The neighborhood is very quiet, especially at night. The cottage itself was cozy with a lovely back yard, all fenced in with lovely plantings. Will definitely be coming back.
We had an excellent time. Will be back. Location was great... having the dog worked so well, with the fenced and lovely backyard, as well as the nearby park and beach.
Thanks a lot... .
Everything was super!
We have been many times in Santa Barbara before but this was the first time that we did not stay in a hotel. We stayed for two weeks and it was a great experience. Beachwalk Cottage has a great location, just across the street from Shoreline Park and in walking distance to the harbor and Shoreline Cafe. Though not the most modern home, the house was clean and we felt instantly at home. We will come back to Beachwalk Cottage, for sure!!
It was amazing to be able to walk out of the house in the morning, cross the street, and watch the sun rise over the ocean! Who would think that would be possible on the California coast? Enjoyed our beach walks and our comfy home away from home.
We really appreciated how clean and easy the cottage was given that dogs are welcome. We found a terrific off leash beach- Arroyo- less than five minutes away by car. The walks, on leash, along Shoreline park were beautiful.
