Overview

Santa Barbara House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, (Sleeps 6 - 8)

Charming, Italian-style beach cottage located at the end of a cul-de-sac in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to Arroyo Burro Beach and the Douglas wildlife preserve, close to Elings Park, and only minutes by car from downtown Santa Barbara and the Santa Barbara Airport.

The residence includes the following unique amenities:

A beautifully landscaped private backyard with a mosaic tile spa, an outdoor hot water shower, a covered patio and sandbox, two open air patios with dining and lounging options, a built in 42 inch Lynx gas BBQ, a full kitchen with high end appliances, including 36 inch Wolf range and Miele dishwasher, two luxuriously finished venetian-plastered bathrooms with high volume water pressure and re-circulating water system providing instant hot water, and a beautiful, hand-chiseled Santa Barbara sandstone wood burning fireplace. Also available for guest use are 3 ocean kayaks and 4 foam boogie boards.

The residence sits adjacent to acres of privately-owned, undeveloped land, providing guests with additional exclusivity and privacy to relax and enjoy themselves. It is comfortably furnished and fully equipped to meet the needs of guests who prefer to entertain as well as families who prefer to settle in and create a home away from home.

Dining options include the acclaimed Boathouse Restaurant which is an easy walk from the home. It is also just minutes by car from gourmet grocery stores, coffee shops, additional ocean front dining, the marina and wharf, and downtown SB. Its location is ideal for those guests who prefer to get out and experience all that Santa Barbara has to offer.

We look forward to having you visit our lovely home!

Beautiful Private Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this home! After a long trip in horrible traffic it was such a such a treat to arrive at such a beautiful home with everything we needed. We were in Santa Barbara for our daughter's wedding and the house perfectly met our needs for the wedding prep, from an extra laundry sink for the flowers, large indoor and outdoor space for meals to the wonderful spa for relaxing after longs days on our feet. Everything you need for cooking and for going to the beach was supplied. The location was perfect and in a quiet neighborhood backing on a nature reserve which made it quite private and quiet. The owners were wonderful hosts! My husband left his glasses behind and Kara went the extra distance to find them and mail them to us within 2 days. Can't thank them enough for that! We would stay here again in an instant and hope to do so again someday.

Perfect SB rental

  • 5 of 5

This is such an amazing property! It really offers everything you could want while visiting Santa Barbara. Upon arriving at the house I was immediately thrilled to see how nice everything was from the landscaping to the interior. All rooms were spacious and at no point did myself or the 4 other guests staying there feel cramped in anyway. The location is perfect, you can walk to Hendry's beach within 5 minutes or drive into downtown SB within 10. The hot tub was an awesome bonus as well, it was so great to go out and relax in it at night when the temps went down. This was my first time ever in SB, not sure when the next time I'll be back there will be.... When that time does come though, this will be the first place I look to rent again. Thanks again Jeff & Kara!!!

Italian Charm!

  • 5 of 5

I must say, my girls and I all fell in love with this house! The owners have done a remarkable job with their attention to detail on the decor. The pictures do no do it justice. The house in conveniently located to downtown Santa Barbara and the beach. Great quite and peaceful neighborhood, we Ubered it everywhere. The home is ideal for a family get away or just a weekend get away with your friends and or significant other. The price is great for all that you get and the owners have done a great job making sure all amenities are in the home. I can go on forever!!! I definitely will be renting this house again!!!

Lovely, well-stocked house with amazing backyard

  • 5 of 5

We had a great extended weekend at this Santa Barbara rental home. The pictures do not do the house justice; everything is nicer in person. The house has everything you need -- soap, shampoo, ample linens, paper towels, laundry detergent, beach equipment and towels, games, books, puzzles -- and then there's the backyard with a built-in barbecue, outdoor shower (great for washing the sand off after the beach!), and a luxurious in-ground spa. The location is good also; we were able to walk to Hendry's Beach and the Boathouse restaurant. It's about a mile down the road from a strip mall that has a grocery store (Albertson's), a bagel shop, and a few other eateries, and it's a quick drive to downtown Santa Barbara. The owners are easy to work with and the security deposit was promptly refunded via PayPal which worked much better than waiting weeks for a check like with most properties. We'd definitely stay here again. Thank you!

Fantastic place and location

  • 5 of 5

What a great place. We stayed there over the holidays and had a fantastic time. Very close to a great beach and restaurant. Communcating with the owners was easy and I would highly recommend this place to anyone with kids. Or as a weekend away with friends. The house is laid out nicely and had everything that we needed.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed here for our niece's wedding, and it was perfect for our family. Great location in a quite neighborhood. The owners are vary meticulous and acommodating. The only problem we had was we were so busy, that we didn't get to enjoy the full beauty the property. Thanks again, The Young Family.
