About Mimi Greenberg
I moved to Santa Barbara 25 years ago after spending a mere four day vacation here. I now, and have for the last 20 years, sell real estate and manage my own rentals. All are long term, except for Caza de Coco which I converted to a vacation rental recently. It is too cute and located in an A+++location
Mimi Greenberg purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Mimi Greenberg chose Downtown
This property was converted to a vacation rental because of the location. It sits in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. Everything is steps away, yet it fronts on one of the coolest streets in Santa Barbara. The house was built in the early 1900s so it is extremely charming with very large windows and beautiful natural light. There are fenced yards and viewing porches both front and back. It is an oasis, a secret spot, a hold-out, a gem peaking out of a downtown corridor. You won't want to leave Santa Barbara and ESPECIALLY Caza de Coco.
What makes this Cottage unique
The proximity of Caza de Coco to everything that is Santa Barbara is A+. You can walk for an evening at the theatre, stroll for a little live music and wine tasting, shop till you drop, partake in two weekly Farmer's Markets steps away, or dine from coffee, breakfast, to 5* restaurants. The lovingly chosen eclectic decor, friendly floor plan, and sun filled room will warm your heart. Caza de Coco will wrap its arms around you and make you feel special and welcome in her fair city.

Viva la Dogs!
charming, comfortable, centrally located
We loved staying at this property! It was such a charming house, close to downtown and the water.
Cute! Very dog friendly and location is perfect!
Mimi was a gracious host and provided many suggestions/tips for enjoying Santa Barbara. The house was VERY dog friendly with fenced in yard, dog beds, baby gate and bowls. Beds were comfy, all the essentials were provided. Walking distance to restaurants, shopping, coffee shops, etc. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again. Thanks Mimi!
We had a good time.
Hummm. "Good location"? Most guests, and MANY return year after year, when describing the location of Caza de Coco use adjectives like "stellar, amazing, fantastic, sooo convenient, perfect, GREAT!!! I am at a loss for words here. I think sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you just can't please everyone all of the time.
A fabulous experience
I stayed in one of the cottages in front with my visiting Mum & my Westie, over Christmas 2014. The cottage was the perfect size for us and the fenced in, dog-friendly garden just perfect for Hamish!
The cottage has everything you could need - and more - with the kitchen perfectly stocked so you don't have to bring anything with you if want to cook. Mimi is a wonderful host - friendly, helpful, and available if you have questions or need anything.
The location is perfect - a block from the buzz of downtown and just a short walk to the beach. I highly recommend it and will definitely be back!
Jackie: Thank you for your kind words! I hope you and your Mom are well this holiday season. Do give that little Hamish a holiday smooch from me. Hope to see you all again soon.
Another Great Experience
We just returned from our second trip to one of Mimi's cottages. This time we were in the back in the smaller, Bungalulu. We absolutely loved it. It was the perfect size for the two of us and our little dog. The kitchen is perfectly stocked, the master bedroom cozy and comfortable, the front sitting room sunny and bright and the bathroom is adorable. I fell in love with the claw foot tub! There is a second small bedroom, and a storage area next to the bathroom, so there was plenty of room to stash away suitcases and such. The gated porches and the shared backyard make this an easy place to bring your dog. That being said, the houses are clean and no sign of excessive dog wear. The location is perfect for walking to the grocery store, restaurants, bars, shopping and even down to the wharf. Mimi is a great resource for things to do and restaurants to try. Our second stay was every bit as perfect as our first. Thanks, Mimi!
Victoria: Always great to have you. I hope to see you again soon.
Walk to shopping, wine tasting, farmer's markets, movies, restaurants, coffee, beach, marina, historical Santa Barbara (red tile walking tour begins on street), take the electric trolly to the zoo, Montecito or just for fun, hike in the foothills, water sports just blocks away. The amazing location of Caza de Coco makes it the perfect 'forget about the car and ENJOY and EXPLORE your visit to Santa Barbara'. Perfect for a car-free carefree stay smack dab in the heart of the city. Use your precious vacation time to explore our fair city and forgetabout the car!
