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
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.
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.
Cozy & convenient

Location can't be beat. Easy to walk to shopping, restaurants, the beach but on a quiet street. No off street parking which concerned us at first but we never had a problem finding a space. The house is cozy & well furnished - although a little less "decorating" so guests have more room to put their things would be nice. Loved sitting out on the front porch. The owner was wonderful - a very gracious "hostess" and very easy to work with.
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!
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!
We stayed at the Annex for a long weekend, and couldn't have asked for a better spot. The house was spotless and very cozy and the location couldn't be beat. We were literally able to park our car when we got there and not get in it again until it was time to leave. We could walk to tons of restaurants, bars and the beach, and even the grocery store was only a block and a half away. The furniture and beds were very comfortable, and there were even hotel-like perks like plush bathrobes and tons of pillows on the bed. The outdoor space is great too, and we were able have drinks and even nap undisturbed in the backyard.
The hostess was very friendly and helpful. We were traveling with a 5-month old baby and a 55 lb. dog, and she was very accommodating for both. She is clearly an animal lover, and we very much appreciated being able to stay someplace that was so pet-friendly. She gave us restaurant and bar recommendations, as well as places where we could take to the dog and good activities for the baby. We would absolutely stay here again, as it made our weekend very enjoyable and relaxing.
I stayed at Bungalulu for a nice two week vacation. Mimi is absolutely the BEST! She made sure I had everything I needed. The kitchen had plenty of topnotch supplies, and it was so cute and retro I loved cooking in it. The house itself was absolutely perfect and SO adorable! Everything was so clean. I am a hard person to please when it comes to clean, and Bungalulu did not disappoint! The beds were so comfy and cozy, it was hard to leave! But when I did manage to get out of the cottage, there was so much to do. I walked to the beach, to the park, the Santa Barbara Mission and there were so many amazing places to shop! I had different friends visiting the area at the time and Mimi was sure to leave me newspapers of the events around Santa Barbara and the surrounding areas. My stay at Bungalulu was honestly one of the best vacations I've had and I can't wait to come back to Bungalulu!!!
I took a last minute trip with my family and we are glad we stayed at Mimi´s place in Santa Barbara. Mimi was really helpful with tips and ideas, and her place is perfectly located in downtown SB. A big plus is that even our dog was comfortable! The house had a fenced backyard well he played safely, and he even had a few new toys to play with. Great place, gracious host, very nice stay.
My daughter and I stayed at Bungalulu in Santa Barbara, CA, for a few enjoyable days. Upon entering the cottage, there was an immediate connection. It felt cozy and inviting. Every room was completely functional. Our every need was met.
Because we did not have a vehicle, the location was perfect. We were in the heart of downtown and could walk to shopping areas or take the shuttle down State Street.
The owner was very welcoming and made sure we were comfortable in our temporary abode.
We would definitely stay at Bungalulu during any subsequent trips to Santa Barbara.
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!
