About Peggy Lindt
We are Eric Kelley and Peggy Lindt. Eric is the owner of The Book Den; founded in 1902, it is among California's oldest book stores. Peggy is an artist, medical illustrator and designer. Her art work has been used in postcards, calendars, books, and several Old Spanish Days Fiesta posters. Peggy has lived in Santa Barbara since childhood. Eric came to town when he bought The Book Den in 1979.
Peggy Lindt purchased this House in 1991
Why Peggy Lindt chose Laguna
We bought this house for ourselves to live in. When Peggy's mother needed more assistance, we moved across town to help, and thought we'd rather rent the bungalow furnished as a vacation rental than have to store all of our furniture. We've always loved the eastside location. It's in Santa Barbara's Bungalow Haven neighborhood, so the whole area is full of nicely maintained bungalows. It's easy walking distance to downtown; Eric and our dog Django often walked to work together. If you stay at Painted Pony Bungalow, you'll get a real feel for old-fashioned Santa Barbara living.
What makes this House unique
Staying in Painted Pony Bungalow gives all the old-fashioned comfort of a craftsman bungalow built in 1917, with lovely woodwork and built-in cabinetry, and vintage kitchen and oak floors. But you don't have to leave 21st century conveniences behind. There's a hot tub, HD television and wi-fi Internet. It's the best combination of the old and the new.

A perfect place
Peggy and Eric's sweet cottage on a quiet street in downtown Santa Barbara is perfect, just right for me and my small dog. The owners couldn't be more accommodating and kind.
Thank you Malka & Saddie for staying at the bungalow and taking good care of everything, it was a pleasure having you both!
Terrific first impression of Santa Barbara
The house was very cute and homey. Well laid out and decorated with everything we needed to cook, relax (hot tub and quiet yard out back), and best of all close proximity (< 1 mile) to state street and other attractions. Peggy was also very responsive and wanted to make sure we had a great time - a terrific host. We would stay here again
Perfect spot for small family
My family of three stayed at this bungalow for four nights. We had a two-year old with us so we needed a place with a kitchen and space for play. The home is completely functional with microwave, pots/pans, dishes, toaster, cable TV, etc. Peggy was very nice and helpful as well. My husband forgot his briefcase there and Peggy was kind enough to ship it to him. The location is close driving distance to all attractions.
Perfect for two people and a dog ;)
This little house was perfect for our short vacation. The neighborhood is friendly and very pretty, excellent for evening or morning walks.
The house is charming and ten minutes away from mostly everywhere we wanted to go to in town. It is the perfect size for a couple.
The enclosed backyard was safe for our dog and a lovely spot to have our meals. The kitchen is well supplied.
If filtered water is important for you, you might want to bring bottled water or a water filter jug.
We highly recommend this house and hope to visit again in the near future.
amazing home in downtown SB
The location of the house is perfect, close to everything in downtown SB. This older home has a lot of cool character. The house is a little small but feels very cozy and has everything you'd need. The backyard is fairly private, with lots of trees and bushes, but the neighbors are pretty close (it is downtown after all). The hot tub was great, its a good size and was very clean and well taken care of. Street parking was easy and if needed there is an additional reserved spot in the parking lot behind the house. Eric and Peggy were very responsive and excellent hosts. Would definitely recommend this place.
We LOVED this place
This met our needs perfectly. As 2 adults and our teenage daughter, everything about the place which is adorable, charming and the location, were perfect. We walked downtown or to the beach every day and when we got tired, we took the bus or shuttle which only costs 50 cents. Eric and Peggy were lovely hosts, the time they spent ahead of time giving us the rundown and the few minutes we spent visiting Eric at the Bookstore were great. This is a wonderful place to stay if you want the true Santa Barbara experience.
