About the property

Beautifully and newly remodeled one bedroom guest suite w/ kitchenette

A sweet and comfortable little guest suite w/ a kitchenette and garden on a street above the SB Mission in Mission Canyon. You hear more birds than traffic--yet you're only 10 minutes from the heart of downtown...

The Space:

This Pied-à-terre has a quiet & peaceful bedroom that sleeps 2 in a comfy King sized bed, a private bath with huge shower, and a lovely living room. There is a small kitchenette for your exclusive use that is equipped with toaster oven, microwave, small fridge, place settings and all that you might need to prepare and serve meals.

We're a short walk to the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden or to the Tunnel & 7 Falls trail heads and many miles of scenic hiking or biking. Being a bit up the canyon, we're usually above the coastal fog, and we're often clear and sunny on mornings when much of Santa Barbara is still cool and gray.

It's just a few minutes drive to Mission Santa Barbara, the Natural History Museum and downtown Santa Barbara with sightseeing, restaurants, tasting rooms, shopping, theaters, parks and beaches.

Off street parking & high speed WiFi included.

No smoking anywhere on the property.

The Neighborhood:

We live in a quiet neighborhood in the lower foothills above Mission Canyon. There's not much traffic so it's a great area for evening strolls or dog walking. We're about a 5 minute walk to the gorgeous Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, and about a mile from the 7 Falls/Tunnel trailhead which brings you into to the extensive network of hiking and biking trails in the National Forest above us.

Getting around:

Since we're up in the foothills a bit you'll need a car (or a bike and strong legs) to get around while you're here. The nearest city bus is over a mile away.

Beautiful place and a very quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

Well decorated with ample amenities. Neighborhood is very quiet and a wonderful spot in the hills above downtown Santa Barbara yet only a 10 minute drive away.

Mission Canyon itself and the property are a definite plus. It is a bit difficult to find.

  • 4 of 5

The property has great promise but needs to be tidied up outside. Love the bedroom and shower area. Living room area is small and there are limited kitchen facilities. Recognize that people live in the same building and it can be a bit noisy. Still it is good value for the SB area.

Cozy oasis

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable accommodation in a quiet neighborhood. Easy driveway parking as streets are narrow. The bed was most comfortable and afforded us a great nights sleep.

Charming and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

A charming and comfortable two-room apartment on a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential neighborhood with great privacy. Limited kitchen facilities (microwave, refrigerator) but perfect for a short stay. Only issue is there is no yard or outdoor space associated with the facility. We have family near-by and will be happy to stay there again on future visits.
