The Hideaway at West Beach - One Half Block to The Beach!

An ideal starting point to a coastal adventure! Located just one block off the beach and 5 minutes from the heart of downtown Santa Barbara, The Hideaway at West Beach is a sleek contemporary flat in the midst of the Santa Barbara coastal playground.

Originally built in the 1930's, the triplex in which this unit resides was completely re-built in 2013 and is one of three connected units. Sleek design elements blend with classic beach themes honoring the philosophy of simple sophistication, with a playful twist incorporating whimsical art and found items from local boutiques.

The Living Room is the heart of the home, with a 65" flat screen 3D TV, comfy couch, and courtyard views. The perfect place for relaxing with a cup of coffee or glass of wine, the tranquil outdoor fountain can be heard when windows are open, bringing a little of the outside in.

Divine comfort awaits in the Master Bedroom, with great light filtering through white shutters aside a luxurious king-size bed. The second guest Bedroom with a hint of a nautical theme, is fresh and serene and features a queen-size bed. Each bedroom boasts flat screen 3D TV's and Blu Ray DVD players.

In the efficient Kitchen, the designer's choice in appliances, dishes and serving pieces echoes the practical feel of the home with a touch of style. With the smart cook in mind, everything is within reach including the Weber propane grill, and dining table just outside on the back deck. Drapes, heavy with rich natural fibers, close off the Kitchen from the hallway and bedrooms to offer sleepy pajama-clad guests a bit more privacy. Seating for four at the mid-century style oak table keeps dining very casual for breakfast, lunch and snacks. When the sun sets, landscape lighting glows outside in the courtyard to add romance for diners to linger into the night.

The enclosed courtyard and its wrap around deck, with fragrant landscaping, is a natural extension of the home with several seating locations. Dining on the deck is the cornerstone of this outside oasis, offering the perfect perch for meals, morning conversations, or family game night. Wet swimsuits and towels can dry quickly on the clever pull out drying rack on the deck too!

A visit to Santa Barbara would not be complete without exploring the city on foot. With the home's location just a half block off the ocean, Stearn's Wharf, The Harbor and local beaches are literally a stone's throw away. The palm tree lined Ambassador Park of the historic Burton Mound, is the perfect spot for a game of Bocce Ball, or a picnic under majestic shady palms. Santa Barbara's place of the moment is The Funk Zone, just a short walk a couple blocks away. This eclectic sub-culture of artisan shops and galleries, scrumptious eateries, nook wine tasting rooms and award-winning microbreweries and trendy restaurants offer something tasty and unexpected.

The Hideaway at West Beach is a very special, luxury alternative to staying at the local beachside hotels that line the neighboring Cabrillo Boulevard, but with more space, fine amenities, and privacy. As the name implies, "hide away" from the busy pace of life, and settle in to a slower more relaxed stride. Not only is it a wonderful and special retreat, but with its central location, it is also a fabulous springboard to just about anything your heart desires. Kick off your shoes and put your toes in the sand. You may never go home again!

The Hideaway sits below The Lookout at West Beach and adjacent to The Cottage at West Beach, each offering the similarly unique design and amenities. All 3 units of this triplex are available through Paradise Retreats. Imagine a wonderful family reunion and rent all three!

Note: Parking for 1 car in shared double garage. There is street parking with time restrictions on the weekends. The Living Room wall of this unit is shared with the Kitchen wall of The Cottage at West Beach.

Guestbook comments from the manager

(Transcribed from guest comments)



First trip to Santa Barbara and the Hideaway at West Beach was a perfect fit for us. It is one of those special places that you hope to return to one day. It was just as clean, cozy and updated as the photos showed it to be. Morning coffee on the patio got our days off to a great start. Close to the beach and the pier, and walking distance to a neighborhood market with a great butcher shop. The Hideaway was a great base for exploring and hiking in Montecito and the Santa Inez mountains. We found Paradise Retreats easy to deal with and we would rent from them again.

A nice place!

  • 4 of 5

Pros: great location, new appliances, spotless fridge, lovely patio with fountain, comfy beds, updated bathroom, plenty of towels. Listing and photos are accurate.

Cons: not many! It can be a little loud when the tenants upstairs are home - you can hear them walking around; the living room furniture was not that comfortable and appeared a little old; the nightly rate is VERY reasonable, but when you add the booking fee ($150) the admin fee ($50), the nonrefundable damage waiver ($100) and the cleaning fee ($225).....yikes! We had only 2 rolls of toilet paper stocked (I don't think thats typical, must have been a mistake), but getting the property mgmt company to supply more rolls took a couple days and a couple texts - not something that's acceptable when your paying all these "fees".

That being said, pros outweigh the cons and we would stay here again!

Loved this place and would book this place again. Everything we needed and the private courtyard was perfect. We walked everywhere and never needed the car. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

200 Steps to the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

The Hideaway in Santa Barbara was everything my husband and I wanted in a vacation rental --- conveniently located near the beach and marina, Sterns' Wharf, and access to the Downtown Trolley, immaculately clean and stylishly appointed, and quiet despite being on the ground floor. We took full advantage of the bicycles, beach chairs and umbrellas that were provided! And we loved the privacy of the unit's small garden area with its water fountain and "al fresco" dining area. This was our third season of renting a Paradise Retreat property in Santa Barbara and we can't say enough about the quality of their properties and service: excellent!

Great weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My three daughters and I stayed at The Hideaway for a long weekend. The property was charming, very clean, and well equipped with everything we needed, including bicycles! The greeter took extra time to talk with us about the area and made restaurant suggestions that were excellent. The location was better than expected. A lovely neighborhood within walking distance to the beach and Wine Tasting Rooms. We loved that!

As we looked out the back of the property we could see the beach and we enjoyed many relaxing moments on the patio.

We look foward to our return!
