About: Paul and I have been living in New Zealand for the last 8 years. We were both in the hospitality industry and know how to meet your high expectations. We love fly fishing,cycling and family. We have relocated to Santa Barbara and have created a beautiful,peaceful,unique space for you to enjoy your time in the area. We can't wait to make you feel comfortable and invite you to enjoy all Santa Barbara has to offer.

We were originally from California. After making a huge international move to New Zealand for 8 years we knew when we returned we wanted to land in Santa Barbara. The area offers everything we love to do. Paul is a paraglider and we love cycling and family. Our real passion is fly fishing which we can't get enough of.

We chose this property because we loved the unique floor plan. The kitchen and bathroom are large and the bedroom is so romantic and roomy. The wow factor from the minute we walked in made us fall in love with our home. Not to mention the 1 block walk to beautiful East Beach where dolphins cruise through the water with grace and beauty. We never want to leave this place.

Delightful Santa Barbara Charmer!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely loved this condo for a Mother/Daughter getaway over the 4th of July. Jane & Paul are lovely hosts - efficient in processing reservations and the in-person welcome upon arrival to assure we could easily get settled was delightful. Condo is as represented with many additional thoughtful touches and amenities, so you have everything you need on-hand, including parking - which can be a little tricky during holiday seasons. Comfort abounds in every room - our favorite being the sun room where we enjoyed breakfast each morning. Many activities within walking distance (the best being the beach just blocks away!) and all Santa Barbara has to offer just minutes away by car. We look forward to the opportunity to stay again in the future!

Loved this condo. The layout maximizes the space. Very comfy-cozy and had everything we could possibly need for a day at the beach to a BBQ or cooking a romantic gourmet dinner. We has a blast renting Pedego Electric Bikes and going up the hill to the Mission and the Gardens and shopped non-stop along state street.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5
I almost don't want to share how great this place is, then we will have to fight for rental time:) I brought my best friend with me to see my son who attends Westmont College. She had never been to Santa Barbara...what a great first impression! The place is so cozy and comfortable with many thoughtful amenities. Even the neighbors were awesome. They gave us tips on where to go. It was so nice to have a place to hang out. My son especially like the huge tv:) You can walk almost everywhere which is a huge plus, especially on weekends when traffic can get really busy. It was so convenient, minutes to the beach, the zoo, the Funk zone and only minutes from my son's apartment. In fact, as soon as I came home, I turned around and made another reservation for May. I don't think I will ever stay anywhere else.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This was such a wonderful place to stay! It is cozy and warm in the living room and yet you also get the sea breezes on the veranda. Jane and Paul make themselves available if you need them, but it is in a totally private little area. It is perfectly located one block from the beach, and within walking distance to State St. and all the restaurants, shops and activities. We thoroughly enjoyed all the lovely touristy things to do...the Mission, the famous Courthouse, Casa de Herrero, Montecito and Lotusland, and lots of long walks on the beach. Perfect!

Near Everything but in a Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5
This is a terrific layout for the extended stay traveller. The living area is spacious for those that just want to flop after an active day. Or sit on the balcony instead and enjoy the mountians.
The king bed was confortable with 2 closets for hanging clothes. The bathroom was oversize that gives more than enough room for 2. The kitchen, while not large is large for a condo like this. The appliances (frig, stove, dishwasher) are standard size, so cooking large meals are no problem. Covered parking for your vehicle is provided and very convienent.
Paul and Jane are kind enough to supply a water cooler, DVD's, TV in master, gas fireplace (we used it a few times when SB had a downpour), gas BBQ and more. Paul even called half way through our stay to ask how we were doing and if there was anything else that he could do for us.
Stearns Warf is a mile away where we walked, drove and took the electric bus on seperate occasions.
The "Funk Zone" is even closer, but you will probably want to drive there. "Funk" contains galleries, wine tasting and a few restaurants. That area seems to be a work in progress.
Even though it seems to be close to everything, a car is necessary. Towns worth going to are Monteceito, Ojai, Solvang. We did also go to San Siemon to see Hearst. It is a full day which 5 hours of that day being driving. Yes, Hearst was worth it, however you may want to schedule to spend the night in San Siemon.
State St. is the culture core of SB. Restaurants, shops, malls, galleries and you can even find a fountian with turtles.
The zoo is across the park from the front of the condo. You will actually walk farther from the zoo's ticket booth to the lion enclosure that you will from the front door to the ticket booth.
Played a round of golf at Sandpiper which is about 12 miles away, but worth the spectacular views of the Pacific.
If I'm back in SB, I will absolutely be staying at Paul and Jane's again.

East Beach Grill - locals favorite/Hyatt
Car: not necessary

We are 1 block to our beautiful East Beach. East Beach has a locals favorite for breakfast, called 'East Beach Grill' This is nothing fancy and we prefer their breakfast over lunch menu. Pete's coffee, simple breakfast menu but right on the beach and thats the best part. The Santa Barbara Zoo is within walking distance and we are next to Dwight Murphy Park if you have children and they love baseball,soccer, par course etc... The Hyatt is a hop,skip and jump and they have a cozy bar if you want to walk and have a drink and appetizer in a nice setting. You can walk on the beach to the 'World Famous' spa and dining room at the Biltmore Hotel in Montiecto. The Sunday morning brunch is stunning and the Thursday night Seafood Buffet is so fresh and clean. Reservations suggested. The SB bird refuge is within walking distance and the beauty of our location is that it is somewhat out of the craziness of state street. We are about a 20-30 minute walk to state street (in less if your a power walker) or you can take the little electric bus for .50 and return for .50.

Great Location,great accommodation,great town!!
