Bedrooms 1
Space 800 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

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 . 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 West Beach

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.

Nice, easy, as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

Small but functional, very clean, comfortable bed, nice linens. Kitchen has all essentials and spices, nice appliances. Super easy walk to State St. great to have private parking. Best suited for two people or couple with 1 child who won’t mind sleeping on pullout. My son (17) said pullout was “fine”. :)

Amazing find - you own't find anything like this

  • 5 of 5

We come all the time to Santa Barbara and have stayed in so many different places. This place is beyond expectation - bed very comfortable with high quality sheets and pillows - private deck is fantastic so sit out on and enjoy the SB weather - kitchen is better than mine at home - love the limestone floors - and best thing is the location. We walked to the funk zone and wine trail and harbor and wharf.... we will be back!
