Baker's Beach Cottage was formerly know as 'The Mira-mer' by Sandra Baker. Sandra Baker was a beautiful and vivacious 8th generation Santa Barbara local. Her ancestry roots go back to a founding father of Santa Barbara, Benjamin Foxen. Sandra was often found headlining as the flamenco dancing 'Fiesta Queen' as a teen at Santa Barbara's world famous 'Fiesta' festival. Sandra or 'Saunie-Mom' was successful in wardrobe design on popular sit-coms such as 'Charles in Charge', 'Different Stokes', 'Maud' and more. Yet Saunie-Mom was most known for generous & hospitable nature.
The blissful beach cottage legacy has since been purchased by Sandra's adoring son, Photographer Nathan Baker. Mr. Baker's mission is to bring fun surf and sun to all who want to leave their cares (and shoes) at the door and enter in to the blissful 'Baker's Beach Cottage'.
Destiny purchased this house in 1980
Baker's Beach Cottage offers a fully furnished home with elegance and charm above the rest and maintains a shabby-chic atmosphere. When our guests stay, the home is theirs to enjoy at its fullest. We bring our highest standard to the table and go the distance to keep our guests returning time and time again. The benefits of choosing a vacation rental over a hotel is the unlimited access to a home environment. You can cook freely, cozy up to the fireplace or watch a movie in 3D with your group in the living room. Or just retire to your room for a nap or read a book as you hear the waves roll beneath you.
At Miramar Beach, the most unique attribute all the homes on the shore offer beach-front homes ON THE SAND (not just near the beach or ocean views). There is nothing like waking up in the morning, and stepping down off your deck with your toes in the sand! Bakers Beach Cottage is particularly family friendly, pets considered too! Our guests have access to all our sand toys, boogie boards and a stand up paddle board! We also keep our technology and electronic updated and currently feature Direct TV shown on a 3D Smart HD TV with wireless surround sound and a 3D BlueRay player. We have 2 outdoor rinsing showers, 2 direct beach access doors and 2 decks! With steps down to the beach, what more could one want?
Lovely climate. Loved the beach.
If you had 10 stars I would give it that! It was absolutely the perfect place to relax or be active. LOVED every minute and cannot wait to return.
We were looking for a quick getaway when we found this little nugget and boy am I glad we did! Destiny was amazing to work with and to say she went above and beyond is an understatement. Her hospitality was unmatched. The Cottage is stunning! The view and sound of the ocean made us feel as if we had been transported to the French Riviera. The house has beautiful furnishings, was super clean, well organized and had everything we would need or want. The beach is quiet and you are literally steps away from the water. You HAVE to come see for yourselves. You will not be disappointed. We went for long walks, relaxed, and even took a shot at the paddle board (It's harder than it looks!) I haven't stopped thinking about what a wonderful time we had and cannot wait until we can go again.
What a beautiful home and a perfect host. Thank you so much! I recommend this to everyone.
My husband and I cannot say enough about this cottage. First of all, Nate and Destiny are so accommodating and make it their first priority to make sure your stay is spectacular. The beautiful tulips, sparkling water, and white wine were such thoughtful gifts that were awaiting us for our anniversary. You cannot get better views as this is an oceanfront property, so close to the sand that all you see is water from the balconies. This cottage is so beautifully decorated that it should be on the front cover of a home magazine! You will want to take all the ideas home with you and decorate your own home the same way :) Cheers to Nate and Destiny for making our stay so special!

If you're looking for a vacation rental home right ON the beach, this is the spot for you. I have been visiting Montecito and Santa Barbara for over 15 years. As a Realtor, I know many of the best streets and secret spots. I was looking for the perfect place to celebrate my 50th birthday with my closest girlfriends and dog. Bakers Beach cottage was fabulous!
I have traveled far and wide. Miramar Beach is one of my favorite places in the world. While the beach is public, it feels like a private space, reserved for the few homeowners who are lucky enough to live there. Book your vacation here before the Miramar Beach Hotel is rebuilt and the secret gets out about what a special place this is. The beach is very dog-friendly, and perfect for surfers, SUP'ers, kayakers, photographers, children, and sunrise or sunset strollers.
The home is beautifully-furnished with beachy shabby chic and antique decor. Everything you could possibly need is here, with a very well-stocked kitchen, pantry, linens, basic toiletries, BBQ, fireplace, washer/dryer, entertainment options, dog beds & bowls (when reserved in advance), and beach toys (SUP, boogie boards, wetsuits, sand toys, chairs, beach towels, extra sunscreen). Destiny is wonderful about answering questions before or during your stay. Don't be nervous if you do not receive the home and parking access details well in advance of your arrival. That is merely a security measure for the owners. Destiny and Nathan are extremely reliable and helpful. They were also flexible with my arrival and departure times, so that I could avoid heavy traffic hours between Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. I would highly recommend this property.
This property is located on the beautiful Miramar Beach in Montecito - Santa Barbara. All of Santa Barbara's most popular attractions. Paddle-board and surfing available on site, right in front of the house!
