Overview

Santa Barbara Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

A charming large one-room cottage on a lovely property with award winning gardens (featured in Sunset Magazine and in Deck, Patio & Pool). The cottage is completely private, with no other homes adjacent. There is a private shaded furnished patio/terrace and another private patio on the side which is sunny.

The cottage has a queen bed, a fireplace, a full kitchen and bath. There is a lush and productive organic vegetable garden for your use.

This lovely property is located near the wonderful open space provided by the extensive grounds of St. Anthony's Seminary and the Old Mission. The Upper East Side is Santa Barbara's loveliest neighborhood yet is within walking distance to downtown Santa Barabara's diverse and cosmopolitan shops and restaurants.

Some comments from recent guests:

About 1 generally

My husband is retired from a lifetime in public service. I work in the nonprofit sector and have for most of my life.

1 generally purchased this cottage in 2001

What makes this cottage unique

As you enter the back yard you will see a 100 year old Live Oak tree that is magnificent and certainly was a big reason we bought this property. We are walkers and our neighborhood is the best walking area in town, filled with mansions, beautiful gardens (public and private), lovely churches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Buongiorno Nancy,



I hope you are well. I just wanted to let you know how much we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your cottage. Even with all the activites - visiting friends and family and the triathlon event - I would say the highlight of our time there was getting to stay in such a cozy, clean, quiet, perfect place. The bed was so comfortable, I slept so good each night. And waking up to the sounds of the birds outside the window was a true delight. And I loved how well-appointed the cottage was, everything of high-quality. One very special touch was the water purifier....it felt so good to not be adding to the mountains of plastic and to be drinking such pure water.



Anyway, if I had to sum up your place, I would say it is in the absolute prefect location and it is – and this is coming from a Santa Barbara native – quintessential Santa Barbara. I hope its available next time we are in town.

Great place but couch (extra bed) misrepresentation on ad photos & description

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful place, but unfortunately ad had photo & description of a couch that was an extra single bed in addition to the double bed, which is why we booked the place. When we got there, a love seat (with no bed function) was there, so we did not get any good sleep.

Thanks, Don and Nancy;

We really enjoyed our stay at your "backyard cottage". Great place, perfect location and fine hosts... including Max. We'll be back and would heartily recommend your cottage to anyone headed for Santa Barbara.

Perfect little hideaway for 2

  • 5 of 5

Lovely back cottage with sweet little private patio. Cottage is clean, bright and airy. A great way to feel like a "local" as it is in the absolute BEST neighborhood in SB- right next to the Mission and the lovliest, upscale homes in the area. Only tiniest complaint: bed too soft and a bathtub would have been sublime.

Quiet cottage on Garden Street

  • 5 of 5

Spent five nights in this cosy guest house. Well designed guest house with fireplace and small kitchen. The wifi was not working and our hosts worked hard to get it up and running. Well located on beautiful Garden Street, a short walk to the Mission, and not far from downtown. Enjoyed golfing, hiking, and visiting wineries in nearby Los Olivos. Markets in the area are fabulous. Love Santa Barbara and would come again.
