Quaint Downtown Santa Barbara Cottage, Live Like a Local
Built in 1890 and refurbished top to bottom in 2007, this Quaint Country Cottage shines like a Gem! Tucked away on a quiet lane 3 blocks from State Street, the center of downtown, this home away from home offers every amenity you want when vacationing. 19th Century Charm includes an inviting front porch, hardwood floors, classic molding, plantation shutters, cottage windows and a private fenced backyard.
Whether you are visiting for the weekend or staying for a month the location of this cottage is hard to beat when it comes to taking in Santa Barbara's downtown area. With the best restaurants and famous theaters 3-4 blocks away, the town is literally at your doorstep. Santa Barbara's world famous beaches, Mission, Pier, and Rose Gardens are all within a 5 minute drive! Biking and walking are definitely conducive for much of your local destinations or you can ride the quaint $.25 trolleys that zip up and down State Street. This cottage is centrally located to everything the city has to offer which is key for your vacation enjoyment!
The owners have gone out of their way to ensure your comfort. Brand new furnishings and appliances are for you to enjoy and the kitchen is stocked with everything the budding chef might need. The living room has a 42" flat screen TV along with DVD/Blu-ray player, HD cable, stereo system, a Nintendo Wii and the most comfortable queen size sleeper sofa for your spill over guests! There are 2 remodeled bathrooms and a bedroom on each level (including a private master suite upstairs). Take advantage of the convenience of a private 2 car driveway, which is a value in itself in Downtown Santa Barbara.
You will want to make this your destination to come back and visit with family and friends exploring all that Santa Barbara has to offer in this inviting Home Away from Home!
The home has a great front porch with rockers and vining flowers, a great place for watching the full moon while we were there! It is fully remodeled and had everything we needed in the home. We were planning to hit the store to buy some basics, but surprisingly everything was there. The house faces an alley so it is quiet with limited traffic and only three blocks to the middle of State St. where we found everything. We only moved the car to go out to the harbor one evening. It is very easy to walk to everything.
It rained the whole time we were in Santa Barbara and I'm still giving this review 5 stars! The cottage is up to date and has everything you need. It's a short walk to fantastic restaurants and shopping. If you don't stop in for pizza at Olio Pizzeria right down the street you're doing yourself a disservice! The neighborhood was quiet and clean and it's very easy to get around town by foot, free shuttle or car.
I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a Santa Barbara getaway.
As well as having great charm, this property is beautifully maintained and decorated as well as being equipped to a very high standard. The owners have obviously considered carefully what would be wanted by anyone staying and have provided it. We loved everything about the place with the added bonus of the garden area and the porch , the porch being a novelty for us Brits.
The location was ideal. Quiet during the day and evenings yet only 10 minutes walk from State Street for all the shops, bars and restaurants. The "House Book" provided a number of recommendations that were excellent although a book in which guests could provide their experiences would have been good. The property provided beach chairs for use on the beaches that were no more than 5 minutes in the car with easy parking and easy access , although four chairs not three would have been better.
We would have no hesitation in recommending both this property and the Letting Agents who supplied it as well as Santa Barbara itself. In all this was an idyllic week and the only downside was that it was not a longer stay. We fully intend returning to the town and if possible to this property some time in the future
the house is clean location is just off the streets so is quiet close to everything. kitchen was actually a working kitchen in that it was stocked so you could cook if wanted ( we mainly did breakfast). wouldn't have to think twice about coming back. our daughter goes to school here so would sight see by day and visit by night
Loved the house and the location. It was everything the listing said. Beautiful little yard. what little we needed from manager was provided quickly and cheerfully. Only problem: too close to too many great restaurants. Gained 5 lbs. over the week.
I came here with my sisters for a weekend getaway. Everything was so clean when we arrived! We were hoping for a tranquil getaway and this place was perfect. The cottage was charming, the neighborhood was so quiet and peaceful and walking distance to state street. We spent our mornings going for runs on the beach and the afternoons eating McConnell's ice cream. Counter productive but hey, it makes us happy. Location was great for both. It was so nice not to hop in the car every time we wanted to go somewhere . Thank you for a perfect backdrop for our sisters' retreat!
