About Laura Wildman

Laura: I take care of The 3DUX and our guests on behalf of my cousin, Inga Frick. Inga grew up in the house with her mother and grandparents. Her grandfather was know to the extended family as Papa Duck. The DUX are named in his honor.

Laura Wildman purchased this house in 1993

Why Laura Wildman chose Santa Barbara

Inga: Our family were renters in the house for 40 years before we were able to buy it in 1993. My grandfather ran a washing machine repair business in the house. Our grandfather was 'Papa Duck' to all the children in the family. Thus The 3 DUX!

What makes this house unique

A beautiful home in a convenient location run by good people.

Nice visit.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property but construction on the gate was disruptive. The apartment was also very dark. Everything else was nice and clean and we enjoyed.

Super Haus, tolle Lage!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben in Santa Barbara geheiratet und ein Teil unserer Flitterwochen in Mama-Dux verbracht. Es war einfach toll. Das Haus ist super sauber und ausgestattet mit allem was man braucht. Die Lage ist perfekt und man ist in 5 Minuten zu Fuß mitten im Stadtkern.

Wir haben es sehr genossen und kommen bestimmt mal wieder.

Walk from the train; stay in quiet comfort

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in the Dux tri-plex twice this summer and both were fantastic experiences. Whether you're on a low-key girls trip (my first trip) or an extended family trip (my second trip), you'll be glad you stayed here. Despite being four blocks from the Amtrak station, two blocks off State street, and about four blocks to the funk zone, you'll enjoy relaxing quiet comfort. Everyone from my 3-year old to the 67- year old grandma was happy. The owners truly care about the comfort of their guests and run a professional (eg, great communication in booking, amazingly detailed binder inside, easy access, little expected at checkout) yet homey (eg, music and fireplace on when you get there, chocolates on the table) operation. Kitchen is well-stocked, even a Crock-Pot. So many extra touches outside as well including bikes, beach chairs, and sand toys. The Dux tri-plex is my go-to in Santa Barbara. Stay there and I'm sure it will soon be yours.

We have been lucky to have wonderful guests and happily anticipate adding you to that family.

Once you are booked we will send a detailed confirmation email that you should look over carefully. Your reply constitutes our agreement. There are only two major things that I ask: That you understand that you are renting one of three apartments in a house and that this is a poor choice for loud partying. Reasonable consideration keeps it a peaceful refuge for everyone. The other rule is a strong one: absolutely no smoking in the house! Smoking outside is fine as long as it’s considerate of other guests who might be annoyed by the smoke and if nearby windows or doors (where smoke might drift into the interior) are shut. There is a $1000 charge for detectable cigarette smoke.

Cancellation policy: If cancellation should become necessary we do extra advertising and work on filling the reservation until the reservation dates are past and every effort has been made at recovery. We will refund whatever we are able to recover. We make every effort and so charge $50, whatever the outcome. The earlier you let us know, of course, the better the chances are of making full recovery.

Dogs are considered on a case by case basis. You should communicate with me regarding your dog. After a couple of disasters we are no longer taking large or shaggy dogs (however lovable or well behaved) and we are particularly careful in the shedding season (spring and summer) Sorry!

Mutual consideration works!

THANK YOU ! :) Inga and Laura (and the rest of the family)

Contact us for adjusted prices on stays of 5 or 6 nights or 21 nights or longer.
Payment by cash, check or echeck is much appreciated (but not required).
There is no tax on stays of 31 nights of longer.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
