Downtown Santa Barbara's most beautiful luxury apartment, in the heart of the entertainment district and four blocks up from the beach. French doors open to a large private deck with views of the mountains, Riviera and city outdoor fireplace and BBQ. A 'loft' style great room with cathedral ceiling includes the kitchen, dining and living areas. The fully enclosed property is a peaceful refuge in easy walking distance of the downtown restaurants, shops, music and festivities. There is gated off-street parking. Pick fresh fruit from the orange, plum and guava trees and ride provided bicycles for a beautiful relaxing holiday. A perfect romantic getaway. Maid service, in house massage and airport pick up available on request.
My mother, Shirley, is the hero of this story as she moved out of her home to make the vacation rental income possible. She still lives in Santa Barbara and you might see her working in the garden. She' is now 92.
This house was in such bad shape when my family rented it in the 60s that it had been condemned. They fixed it up and got it out of jail. We were able to buy it in 1993. It has been home to my brother and I, my mother and my grandparents, Nana and Papa. Papa was known to all of the children of our extended family as Papa Duck (thus the three DUX).
