Studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 3)
A classy hideaway in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara's entertainment district with shopping, music, dance and excellent restaurants just steps away. The apartment is one block from State St., 2 blocks from the 'Funk Zone' and four blocks up from the beach. This artist designed studio apartment is small but beautiful. The apartment has exclusive use of the front porch of a lovely craftsman style house on a charmingly landscaped, fully enclosed private property in the center of the entertainment district . The elegantly designed corner bed couch is unusual. A drawer pulls out to convert it to a really comfortable queen size bed with tempurpedic topper. We can add an extra single bed-height blowup bed if needed. There is HDTV, WIFI, washer/dryer and gated private off street parking. BBQ on your porch, eat fresh fruit from the fruit trees and use the free bicycles for car free, stress free enjoyment. Relax and feel pampered in this thoughtfully re-designed and well loved home. This is one of three apartments in an old home so please understand that this is not a good choice for loud late night partying. If you would like to check out the other two (one bedroom) apartments, they are Mama Dux and Papa Dux.

Location and charm in Santa Barbara
This luxuriously decorated, impeccably clean, and thoroughly comfortable studio was a perfect place to spend five days back in Santa Barbara, my home for 30 years, until I moved away six years ago. Located just one block from State Street, with its convenient electric trolley service, shops, restaurants and just five blocks from the beach and Stearn's Wharf, this apartment is great for enjoying all that SB has to offer. Off-street parking, a very pleasant and surprisingly private porch, and bicycles are welcome amenities. Laura emailed me to let me know that the city planned an electic service outage one night and offered an extra flashlight or whatever else I felt I needed. It was not an inconvenience at all since I slept through the outage! She checked the next morning to be sure that all was well. I highly recommend this studio, especially as an alternative to similarly priced hotel rooms! Great location, thoughtful service, excellent value. Five stars!
Perfect Oasis in Santa Barbara
Perfect location to be within walking distance of downtown as well as the Funk Zone. Loved the property especially the garden. The manager went out of her way to make sure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. Would definitely stay here again!
Amazing location and shockingly comfortable bed. I loved my stay.
Everyone is so surprised by how comfy the bed is! We love it! We're so pleased you enjoyed your time in the Baby!! Do come again.
Big smiles, Laura and Inga
Peaceful and Serene! Perfect! Ecectic and colorful!
Baby Dux was the perfect hideaway! So close to the best vegetarian restaurants, yoga studio and great shopping! This property is very well maintained and the foliage is beautiful complete with fruit trees! Laura is the perfect manager, very welcoming and personable. Baby Dux is a very cute and complete little pad! Huge television and adorable fireplace! We will definitely stay here again! Thank you!
We're so happy you'll be returning in the future! We appreciate the mention of all the little amenities and we hope others will read your review, book with us and have the same positive experience. You are more than welcome.
Warm regards, Laura and Inga
Clean! Great Location!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Baby Dux! From the minute we arrived, everything was extremely comfortable and inviting. They even had coffee and creamer in the unit. It was very easy to work with Laura the property manager. She was quick to respond to any questions. We would definitely stay again!!!
My trip to Santa Barbara was brief, but wonderful experience. Laura, the property manager was very nice and helped make my short trip a memorable one. The unit I stayed in was a studio which is perfect for a single traveler. It is located only a block from State St. and was walkable to all the restaurants and nightlife of Santa Barbara. I was fortunate enough to be able to check in a little earlier than normal which helped as my flight arrived early as well. The next time I make it to Santa Barbara, I will definitely look to stay at Baby Dux.
It was a pleasure to have you as our guest. We're so happy you enjoyed your time in the Baby and will visit again. It really is a wonderful little spot, close to everything! Warmly, Laura and Inga
