Why Bunny DeLorie chose West Beach

The location is super! 2 blocks to the beach, Harbor and Breakwater. The property is a darling petite 1928 Craftsman Cottage and we just could not resist purchasing it and turning it into a wonderful home-away-from-home.

What makes this Cottage unique

Single family home with a private backyard with deck. Charming neighborhood named West Beach. Walk 2 blocks to the beach, Harbor and Breakwater. The location is super. The Cottage is very comfortable and decorated beautifully. Warm bamboo floors, soothing paint colors which were inspired by the pearl watery greens and ocean blues of the inside of an abalone shell.

                                                              Very cozy cottage - great location!

                                                              We really enjoyed our stay in Beach Bunny Cottage. We walked everywhere, watched movies by the fire, played games with the kids and had great family time. Bunny was a great host and everything in the cottage was clean, well stocked, good quality and easy to use.

                                                              This charming cottage could not be any cuter or located in a more ideal location. We loved our stay. Bunnie has really made this home a home! There is nothing that is missing!

                                                              Just great!

                                                              The cottage is delightful and Bunny makes everything easy. Altogether a wonderful experience.

                                                              Excellent cottage

                                                              We stayed at Beach Bunny Cottage for the month of February and we couldn't have been happier. The cottage is perfectly located near the beach, marina and downtown State Street. We walked almost everywhere and when we were tired we just hopped on the trolley to take us close to home. When we rented a car, we were only a few blocks from 101 for easy access up and down the coast.

                                                              The cottage is really comfortable and fully stocked with everything you could imagine. You can even bake a cake if you want! The outside deck in the back is very private and lovely. The bed in the master bedroom is comfortable and the linens are excellent.

                                                              Bunny is a font of information and was very accommodating to a last minute change in our schedule. The cottage is in great shape and clearly cared for with love. It was great stay.

                                                              Dear Michelle,

                                                              Thank you so much for your kind review! We're so happy you selected our Beach Bunny Cottage and look forward to welcoming you both back again!




                                                              Wonderful Cottage!

                                                              An absolute gem and wonderful cottage! We were evacuated during the recent fires from our home. Bunny was gracious and kind to open her rental for us and allow us to stay a few days until the evacuation was lifted. She was extremely accommodating and cleaned up the cottage just hours after the last guest had left in order for us to sleep there our first night. The cottage is conveniently located to the beach and plenty of restaurants and a grocery market.

                                                              Everything was very clean and tidy and in order. Bunny made us feel at home despite the unfortunate circumstances. We are so thankful for Bunny and that cozy beach cottage!

                                                              Dear Friends,

                                                              It was my pleasure to help you all in your time of need for housing. I'm so happy that you and your home was safe.

                                                              We had a very pleasant stay. The cottage was comfortable, clean, well equipped and was even nicely decorated inside and out for the holidays. Bunny was great and provided helpful recommendations for restaurants, most within walking distance. Staying here is a great way to experience Santa Barbara and its beautiful waterfront, which is just a couple of short blocks away. - Chris & Audrey
