About the property

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-3)

This is one of three vacation rentals on this property.

Ideal place to stay for visiting the beautiful Santa Barbara area. The property is located in an upscale neighborhood above Tucker's Grove Park. Affordable, peaceful and quiet 1 bedroom with full bath nestled in 1 ½ acre of land. The bedroom is closed off to the main house with its own bathroom inside the bedroom. None of the walls from this bedroom are adjacent to any other bedroom walls. It has a private patio entrance that leads out to a landscaped garden with tropical plants and a distance view of UCSB and a peak of the ocean. The patio is perfect for you to enjoy your morning breakfast and surf the net while taking in the gorgeous views.

This is a great place to stay to visit family and friends or to bring your child to visit UCSB. We are centrally located between downtown Santa Barbara and UCSB. We are about 5 min drive (5 miles) to Santa Barbara airport, UCSB, closest beach, hiking trails, bike path to Goleta beach; 10 min to downtown Santa Barbara; 35 bike ride to UCSB.

A car is needed to get to the property. No need to hunt for off street parking. Parking space is provided within the property.

I may be able to accommodate all your dates on another unit or split your dates between two units if if you are willing to move from one unit to another on this same property.

Inquire on discounts for more than 2 week stay.

You have a choice of booking through VRBO and pay booking fees or book directly through me without booking fees.

Enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I greatly enjoyed our stay at our hosts home. The location and the property was lovely and the views great. Our host provided a nice welcome with directions and information on how best to get around, great places to eat, and local events. The property was clean and well maintained and just far enough out of town to be to feel rural. We had a great time and would stay again.

The best ever

  • 5 of 5

We booked 2 studios for a week long business trip. Absolutely loved the garden setting and the two very well behaved doggies who kept us company on the columbine covered patio with terraced gardens and ocean views. The host was always available for our questions and assistance. The best part was being able to leave all the secured screened windows and doors open at night to enjoy the abundant fresh air. We are currently booking 2 more visits.

Off the beaten track, but close to lots

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I needed a brief change of scene, with access to wine tasting, hiking, biking, kayaking, disc golf, and good food. This studio was it. Quiet neighborhood. Comfortable bed. Great view from the small table at the vine covered entry. Limited cooking facilities, but Chris made her gas bbq available when we did fresh spot prawns. The bike path to the beach is close, for a nice 10 mile ride, if you take the right turns (we didn't). The popular hike to Inspiration Point is a nice challenge. Kayaks can be rented at SB Harbor, and don't miss the Deep Sea tasting room on Stearns Wharf for a great view. Thanks, Chris!

Last minute trip to Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

What a great spot to find some rest and relaxation in the middle of a long, busy trip. Place was very comfortable - mattress was the best we slept on the 2 weeks we spent on the road! Grounds were amazing - flowers, hummingbirds, view - all of it! Even comes with owners sweet dog if you wish - Sunny is a lovable yellow lab. The covered patio was a great place to start your day. We arrived with muffins, fruit and coffee and enjoyed a nice, quiet breakfast on the patio every morning. Owner was so easy going. When she found out we loved our coffee, she exchanged the coffee pot for a bigger 10 cup coffee maker. Place has everything you need to stay a while. Close to town and the beach. Owner provides a local paper and a list of her favorite restaurants. We looked up online menus and followed her recommendations and enjoyed some great food. Like another reviewer, I wish there was a Brita pitcher in the fridge. We also drink a lot of water and I felt like we needed to get refills constantly. Loved the soft water for showering though - what a difference! Only problem might be if you are on the short side trying to get into the tub - I am 5'9" and it was a little difficult to get in because of the height of it. Would highly recommend that you come here to relax and enjoy the setting. Those gardens had me in heaven!
