About: Paul and I have been living in New Zealand for the last 9 years. We were both in the hospitality industry and know how to meet your high expectations. We love fly fishing,cycling and family. We have relocated to Santa Barbara and have created a beautiful,peaceful,unique space for you to enjoy your time in the area. We can't wait to make you feel comfortable and invite you to enjoy all Santa Barbara has to offer.
We were originally from California. After making a huge international move to New Zealand for 9 years we knew when we returned we wanted to land in Santa Barbara. The area offers everything we love to do. Paul is a paraglider and we love cycling and family. Our real passion is fly fishing which we can't get enough of.
We chose this property because we loved the unique floor plan. The kitchen and bathroom are large and the bedroom is so romantic and roomy. The wow factor from the minute we walked in made us fall in love with our home. Not to mention the 1 block walk to beautiful East Beach where dolphins cruise through the water with grace and beauty. We never want to leave this place.
We were all so delighted to find such a special place to stay while in Santa Barbara - Thank you
Top notch place to stay. Very convenient to the beach and walking distance to restaurants. FIreplace lends a cozy atmosphere especially on cool evenings. Well stocked and furnished kitchen. Jane and Paul are great hosts. Will definitely return.
We spent 3 nights at this lovely condo. It was very comfortable & beautifully furnished. We stay in a lot of VRBO's around the globe & this kitchen was one of the best equipped ( well except the one that came with a cook😉. Since it is the first of the year & the weather was cool, we enjoyed the fireplace in the evening. They even still had a Christmas tree up which was a nice touch....these small touches are what make this a lovely place to stay. The owners were easy to work with & careful who they rent to which is important in this business. We would definitely stay there again if we are back in Santa Barbara. Thanks for sharing this property....oh & did I say it is a short walk to the beach!
The condo was setup nicely with everything needed, just bring your suitcase and grab some groceries, you will be set. The owners were very good at checking in with a text to make sure we were comfortable. We spent more time in the unit because of the season, and we were glad we chose this place.
The condo was beyond our expectations! A very modern and upscale feel with wonderful decor to match. It is a short walk to the beach and centrally located to downtown Santa Barbara! Paul and Jane were phenomenal hosts and thought of every detail. We will certainly return!
the condo was in a great location (short walk to the ocean). It was well stocked and clean. Jane and Paul were very attentive. We enjoyed our week.
The Each Beach Condo was lovely. It was very clean and updated with a great master bedroom and bath (bed and sheets were so comfy). I loved that the hosts had beach chairs, beach towels, toys and boogie boards. It was an easy one block walk to east beach, a nice cafe on the beach and the running/biking path. You can catch the shuttle down the block and be to state street in no time. Paul and Jane checked in with us to see if we needed anything and were very considerate. I would definitely recommend this property!
We are 1 block to our beautiful East Beach. East Beach has a locals favorite for breakfast, called 'East Beach Grill' This is nothing fancy and we prefer their breakfast over lunch menu. Pete's coffee, simple breakfast menu but right on the beach and that's the best part. The Santa Barbara Zoo is within walking distance and we are next to Dwight Murphy Park if you have children and they love baseball,soccer, par course etc... The Hyatt is a hop,skip and jump and they have a new pool bar if you want to walk and have a drink and appetizer in a nice setting. You can walk on the beach to the 'World Famous' spa and dining room at the Biltmore Hotel in Montiecto. The Sunday morning brunch is well worth your while. Reservations suggested. The SB bird refuge is within walking distance and the beauty of our location is that it is somewhat out of the craziness of state street. We are about a 20-30 minute walk to state street ( less if your a power walker) or you can take the little electric bus for .50 and return for .50.
Great Location,great accommodation,great town!!
