Why Melanie Cava chose West Beach
There are so many Santa Barbara properties available for rent. The number one difference between all of them are location, location, location. The closer to the beach and the closer to Santa Barbara the more expensive the real estate. We are 2 blocks to the beach and downtown, not on a commercial thorough fare, not next to the highway or railroad track and not a bus ride or car ride away from downtown. We combine our location with the best pricing and the best amenities. Finally, we are immaculately clean

A perfect getaway
It was perfect! Clean, comfortable and charming
Love the apartment and location
This was our second stay in the apartment and it was very comfortable. The apartment is spotless and I love that the balcony gets sun all day making it a great place to lie on the lounges and read. Short walk to the beach and very easy to access the shops. The kitchen benches have been updated and the appliances are good quality. We plan to return next year.
Perfect beach cottage!
We loved this beach cottage rental. It had everything we needed. It’s lication was perfect to the beach, restaurants, walking/bike trails. The owners were also super responsive which was much appreciated. We would definitely come back here again.
Good. but a couple of reservations...
The apartment was fine.... The kitchen was somewhat dated and old, and needed a pick-me-up. The bathroom had absolutely no room to put anything down.... We arrived in a heat wave, and sleeping was very difficult because there was no air conditioning.
Living room/bedroom were both fine and the furniture was comfortable.
As good as it gets!
We stayed here the second time (after 2012) and loved it just the same!!
Perfectly located with beaches and State St only a very few minutes walk away, we enjoyed our days strolling around and sitting on the balcony with a cold drink.
Apartment is well stocked with kitchen ware as well as spices, oil, sugar,...
Bed is super comfy, as is the sofa, having a private parking spot behind the house is very convenient, communication with Eddy was lightning fast, all in all again an amazing stay!!
Thanks for having us, we'll be back for sure!!
Very comfortable with a great bed. Clean, easy to find with most of the necessities of life. Had a private parking space that was handy. Quick easy trip from the airport.
