West Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-3)

Welcome to the best that Santa Barbara can offer - Location, Quality and Price - that is unmatched even in the finest hotel suites and our beach competitors.

The Luxury Seaside Getaway is done in the Provence style with hand cast plaster, faux paining, 10 feet vaulted ceilings and hand-selected antiques giving it both a romantic and European feeling. A reflection of the charm of the days bygone.

The kitchen is a chefs dream, fully equipped with wolf stove, sub zero refrigerator, granite countertops and custom PJ Mulligan cabinetry done in their seafoam green, a local color of the santa barbara area.

The bathroom is immaculate with limestone throughout and large shower for 2 with incredible dual shower heads. It also has a separate Jacuzzi tub that sits below a beautiful piece of stone carved art - the maiden - to relax in after a day at the beach.

The warm living room offers a 36' HD TV with DVD with expanded cable. It also looks out upon a large private encased courtyard complete with Italian fountain, chaise lounges, table and chairs and gas grill. Enjoy the California sun in-between the walks to the beach and town.

And the bedroom offers a king size bed.

Our Seaside Getaway is located in the most desirable location in santa barbara, 2 blocks from the beach, Las Banos public pool, Stearns Wharf, harbor, world-class dining, and downtown shops, including our own local farmers market. Leave your car and worries behind. We even offer RARE off street reserved parking.

This is all complimented with free wireless broadband internet access, luxury linens, Waterford fireplace, private washer and dryers, to name a few.

The Seaside Getaway is a rare, high quality vacation destination in the heart of santa barbara! You will not find a comparable vacation rental for the price!

Some helpful hints when comparing to our Beach Competitors: We are not adjacent to the railroad tracks or highway. We are not on a commercial thorough fare. We offer private on site reserved parking and are on one level. Finally, the Seaside bathroom is brand new and immaculately clean

About Melanie Cava

My husband and I were one of the original property owners to offer vacation rentals and have been in the business for 8+ years. We are unique because we own and manage our own properties. If you need something and call us, we answer and we persoanlly take care of your needs. This care and attention can be seen in the quality and ambiance of the property.

Melanie Cava purchased this house in 1998

Why Melanie Cava chose Santa Barbara

We choose this location literally because it is the best. Walk down 2 blocks and you are on the sand and the Las Banos public pool is there. Walk 2 more blocks over and you are at the Wharf and State Street (main stree downtown) - so we are walking distance to all - Others will say they are but you have to walk 1+ miles just to get here. And we offer private reserved parking so you don't have to fight for a spot on the street. Finally we are in a nice residential area, not on a commercial thorough fare or next to the highway or railroad tracks for which some of the vacation rentals literally shake. One golden rule of real estate is location location and we have it.

Wonderful vacation rental for my family

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful experience from first contact with the owners to departure. Melanie was prompt to respond and answer all of my questions. My wife, toddler son and I had a perfect stay in the beginning of June. The condo is every bit as nice as the pictures with high-end kitchen appliances and excellent attention to detail. Everything worked great. The rental is clean, elegant and tastefully decorated. The bed is comfortable. Water pressure is strong and the towels are soft and thick. It's also quiet--you do not hear sounds from above or the sides. The location is great and nearly equal distance to our two favorite beaches Henry's and Butterfly Beach. We enjoyed the deck too. The off-street parking made it easy to come and go as we pleased. We look forward to returning and couldn't be more pleased with the owners.

Charm and comfort in great location

  • 5 of 5

Glad to discover this well-located Santa Barbara gem. Immaculate, stylish and very chic. Every amenity provided for long or short stay. Gorgeous kitchen and bathroom. Comfortable beds and quiet neighborhood. Safe private parking in back. Charming private patio extends the living area. This apartment is perfect for two but worked for the three in our party with sofa bed.

Perfect condo in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our 2 children stayed in this condo for a week at the end of May. I can't say a bad thing about our experience. The condo was clean and well appointed. The kitchen is nicer than most homes. The off site parking is definitely an added bonus. The beach and boardwalk are within walking distance, as are several nice restaurants. The condo is conveniently located near the highway and State St. There are several condos in this property, and I am certain they are all just as nice as this unit. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Superb Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

Our excellent accomodation at Seaside Getaway added greatly to our enjoyment of Santa Barbara. The apartment was clean, fresh, comfortable and convenient to the beach and local transportation. The private patio was a lovely retreat after our busy days. We will definitely return to this charming place.

Look no further!

Perfect experience- from booking until departure. Melanie was prompt to respond. She provided us with everything you could possibly need to know about Santa Barbara and the wine region. It made our vacation planning a breeze! The rental is lovely- new, fresh, comfortable, cozy and clean. The kitchen is a dream with top quality appliances. You can not beat the location- walking distance to the beach, shopping and restaurants. We are looking forward to returning!

There are 900+ vacation rentals in the 'Santa Barbara Area'. Vacation rentals pricing follow the same trend as real estate pricing - location, location. The farther out you go out of Santa Barbara, the less expensive the real estate and the better the vacation rental pricing.

We are located in the best area of Santa Barbara - the Historic West Beach Area - 2 blocks to the Beach and downtown Santa Barbara, yet not on a commercial thoroughfare, not next to the railroad tracks or not adjacent a highway. And we offer private reserved parking.

In addition to location, look at our property and compare amenities and pricing. We are unmatched..
