|Minimum Stay||30 nights|
[We do NOT advertise on Craigslist] Effective 1/1/2017 our minimum stay is 30 days or more. The beauty of Santa Barbara awaits you in this exquisitely designed and lavishly appointed cottage by the sea. With the help of an architect, interior designer, and skilled construction team, this beach cottage underwent a complete remodel and has been professionally decorated; not a detail has been missed! Each room of the house has been carefully designed and decorated to reflect the beach atmosphere and exude feeling of relaxation, comfort, and luxury.
The main living area has a plasma TV home theater (with over 100 dvd's to choose from) and opens up to the ocean through a set of glass wall doors and leads to our outdoor porch full of plush seating and unparalleled ocean and island views. Just off of the main living area is a family room and additional TV. The kitchen boasts a Sub-Zero Refrigerator, granite countertops, a six-burner Dacor stove, a walk-in pantry, a Miele dishwasher, and all the premium cookware a gourmet chef could wish for.
In the three master suites, you will be pampered by the California King Simmons Beautyrest and Westin Heavely mattresses, premium bedding, full baths, flat-screen televisions, and from the downstairs suites French doors that lead to the restful backyard and hot tub. The upstairs master suite has a balcony with a clear view of the harbor and 180 degree ocean views. Plus the living room has a premium queen size hide-a-bed and if needed we also have a premium inflatable queen size air mattress for additional sleeping.
If you decide to venture out, there are four bikes, a kayak, a boogie board, 2 paddle boards and a nine foot Doyle foam surfboard for you to enjoy, as well as an outdoor shower and washer and dryer for when you return. With hardwood floors, automated skylights, and built-in cabinetry throughout, this light and airy cottage is any vacationer’s dream come true!!
We had a fabulous time at this house. It's a sensational place - beautifully decorated and with great taste. The house is wonderfully located across the road from the beach and the main bedroom has direct views over the ocean. We especially valued the privacy of the main bedroom (on the upper floor) with two other bedrooms on the ground floor. There are several outdoor seating areas - at the front of the house (with folding patio doors to the living room) and in a private rear yard with hot tub. We used the Apple TV which is located throughout the house. It was especially useful to have access to bikes - the house is an easy cycle to downtown and this is by far the best way of getting around the exquisite community of Santa Barbara. I'm sure Jeff would have been very helpful if we needed to contact him - but we didn't. The house worked perfectly for us, without a hiccup. Recommended without hesitation.
The house is beautifully appointed. The location was perfect for easy access to outdoor activities.and great local eateries. We were comfortable and felt like we were at home. I've been to Santa Barbra many times and this was by far my favorite place to stay.
This home is absolutely incredible!! It's a beautifully decorated beach cottage that makes you feel transported from the inside pages of a magazine into a real life home you get to pretend is your own!! Jeff is great to work with and very accessible. The home has everything you need to relax, enjoy, and soak in the the Santa Barbara vibe. It's fantastic location makes it easy to explore SB and all it has to offer.The house and everything in it is high quality and very accommodating. Also, a plus, great parking for visitors right across the street! Thanks Jeff!! We loved it!
My husband and 3 kids and myself stayed a week and truly enjoyed the home! The location was so perfect! Steps away from the beach to go surfing, minutes away from downtown! Loved the porch where we would hang out and drink wine in the late afternoons... Each and every room was perfect and in every little corner or door where instructions on EVERYTHING about the home. I always felt at home there. Thanks for a fantastic stay!
This house exceeded all of our expectations. From the beautiful decor to the incredible amenities, this house has IT ALL! We were six adults and one child and had more than enough room to relax and enjoy the beautiful ocean views and incredible backyard space. I cannot recommend this house enough and Jeff was the perfect host. 5-stars and we can't wait to stay again!
We had a wonderful holiday at Santa Barbara whilst staying at this property in Feb 2016
It really is first class accommodation, the decor, facilities and location are all superb. We really enjoyed being able to walk down into Santa Barbara most days, when we weren't out exploring the wonderful wine country in Santa Ynez.
We would also call out what a good host, Jeff is. Funnily enough we say that and we haven't actually met him, he likes to let guests have their privacy, but when we had a logistical problem with the VBRO payment system during the booking he was really really helpful. This was particularly reassuring as we had booked and were travelling from the UK.
Thanks again Jeff!
The home accommodated six people (three generations) with ease. Part of the house had been recently renovated, but the whole house felt "new". Premium finishes, linens, etc. The floor plan was just right...we could be together or apart. The weather was unseasonably warm and the house doesn't have air-conditioning. Between the fans (in every room) and ocean breezes, we were very comfortable. The family space off the kitchen has folding doors that open to the outside with a view to the park across the street and ocean. It's the best room in the house. We started (coffee) and ended (wine) every day there. The owner was very accessible and timely when we needed him. I would return to the area just to stay in the house again.
