Oak Park Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

1 Bedroom Vacation rental in downtown Santa Barbara. Downstairs portion of home w/ private entry. 2 blocks from State Street on a Palm tree lined street. All the amenities of downtown are just a short walk away.

Quiet, cute and charming rental.

The heart of the shopping/restaurant district is less than a mile away. An easy 10-20 minute walk.

Ideal for a couple, but can sleep up to 4*.

*NOTE: The 2nd bed is a sofa bed. It is not nearly as comfortable as a regular bed. Please keep this in mind as you are booking.

About The Owner

My wife and I are travel junkies! We LOVE exploring new places and getting to know how the locals live everywhere we go. Because of this, our preference while traveling is to stay in Vacation Rentals and Bed and Breakfasts!

This background gives us a unique ability to create a warm yet functional place to stay during your visit. We created a place WE would like to stay in!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2006

Why The Owner chose Santa Barbara

We simply LOVE downtown Santa Barbara! We are regular walkers and enjoy having access to all that the downtown corridor has to offer.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment (or Casita) is designed by people who have traveled extensively and know what is appreciated while away from home and exploring new places.

As people who enjoy eating out, we give many tips on the local restaurants and wine tasting options.

We also give you the privacy you desire. If you want to interact, we are available. Otherwise we try our best to allow you to feel like you have the place all to yourself!


Guestbook comments from the owner

Casita Valerio is by far the best place I have stayed since visiting Santa Barbara. I lived in Santa Barbara for 35 years and know it well. The location is perfect to access all that Santa Barbara offers. It is clean, beautifully decorated and incredibly comfortable. I just loved coming "home" to my wonderful casa.

Very positive experience!! Great communication with owners. Although it was much smaller than anticipated, it was very well worth the price! Great neighborhood, close to everything. Looking forward to use this location the next time we return to Santa Barbara.

Pretty good place to stay - quiet and good location

  • 4 of 5

Overall very pleased with the place. It was quiet and close to downtown. Nothing spectacular but we'll probably use it again.

Two minor things: someone from the property upstairs was parked in our space when we arrived so we had to make them move, and the bed was pretty hard. Other than that it was fine!

Great location, quiet and clean

  • 5 of 5

This little apartment was really cute and convenient. It's walking distance to State Street shops. On a cute street that feels safe and is quiet. Towels and sheets were soft. Great movie selection for DVD player and thoughtful perks like free coffee and wine. We will stay here again for sure! Thanks for a nice stay.

Convenient location, nice and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay a lot. Honestly we were only in the room long enough to sleep each night. The location is convenient, and it's a bit of a walk. But for the price, there's no way you can beat it. Everything we needed was there, including coffee, beach towels, stocked bathroom, and a cute little tv/living room. It was very quiet and we loved it. The parking spot was great to have. All in all, we really enjoyed ourselves.

Cozy one bedroom apartment in a perfect location for visiting Santa Barbara!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Casita Valerio and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Its a very cozy and private one bedroom apartment that is part of the owner's home. It was very spacious for the 2 of us and could easily accommodate 4 people. The apartment was very clean and had all that we needed for the 2 nights ~ convenient kitchenette with coffee maker, microwave, fridge and sink; good size bathroom with shower/tub, spacious living room and cozy bedroom. The owners even had a bottle of wine and chocolate for us! Very thoughtful. The location was perfect for getting around Santa Barbara (State St., Santa Barbara Mission, the pier, etc.) Casita Valerio is certainly a place we would like to stay again on our next visit to beautiful Santa Barbara!
