In addition there are bike rentals, Segway rentals, peddle surrey rentals, a skate park, the Chase Palm Park with a merry-go-round and the site of a craft fair each Sunday that lines the beach boardwalk. The Santa Barbara Zoo and the Bird Sanctuary are an easy mile and half walk. If you are traveling to Santa Barbara by train the Secret Getaway is two blocks from the train station and there is a car rental agency two blocks away in case you want to explore the Santa Ynez Valley wine country. If you are tired of walking, all of these attractions can be reached by a local 25 cents-a-ride shuttle bus that runs up State Street and along the ocean front from the harbor to the zoo.

Why Melanie Cava chose Santa Barbara

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

Great location. Close to shopping and beach.

  • 4 of 5

Easy access. Comfortable bed. I slept so good. Would have given a 5 star but to sofa smelled and we felt the need to cover it with a sheet and the towels smelled like they hadn't been dried all the way. We washed them and they were fine after that. Cleaning crew needs to do a better.

Birthday celebration for a Kansas family

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property! We were happy with the location and it was well appointed. It was clean and had everything we needed for a great stay. We never heard another resident the entire weekend and the balcony was a nice extra. Would love to return!

West Coast Vacation - from Minnesota in November

  • 5 of 5

Great location for a week in SB to relax. Convenient to everything. Clean as your mothers place. Had several meals in - used BBQ for fish night - breakfast in mornings and deck was great to relax after day of wandering. Suggest picking up bikes in town for commuting/roaming area - made very easy transportation vs. driving and parking at area attractions, beach, downtown, etc. Would definitely stay here again - clean, central location and convenient to everything.

The property was lovely and the location was wonderful. It was nice to have a grocery store so close to the property. The neighborhood is beautiful. The rental was very clean and well maintained. Very bright and open. Beautifully decorated and a well equipped kitchen. I will definitely stay there again. Next time it will be longer. The owners are wonderful about providing information on Santa Barbara. They give you a lot of suggestions.

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.
