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
My husband and I stayed at this property for eight nights in mid-July. The condo was immaculate and nicely set up for visitors. It was a pleasure to not have the owner's personal items around since this was not the owner's home. A walk across the street to the beach made it an ideal location for us. There were ceiling fans in the LIVINGROOM and bedroom that were adequate during the beginning of our stay. Santa Barbara experienced an unusual heat spell the last few days of our visit and air conditioning would have been a welcome addition in the condo. Paul met us when we arrived to show us around and let us know that he was available if we needed anything. All in all it was a pleasant stay and an ideal location that we would repeat if traveling to Santa Barbara again.
Great property with easy acces & excellent attention to details on the interior. Bed linens and towels were top shelf.
This lovely condo exceeded my expectations. It really felt like I was at home. Great location right at the beach and to the shuttle at the Hyatt that takes you downtown. I will definitely, definitely stay here again on my next trip to Santa Barbara!
This is a BEAUTIFUL condo! Great location to the beach, Montecito and down town SB! The condo itself is quaint, clean, spacious, relaxing and just perfect for the start of our honeymoon! Paul was accessible and a wealth of knowledge, and there for us at any time if needed. The location is perfect for a walk down to the beach, a quick drive over to Montecito and State street. We experienced a little of everything the area had to offer and fell in love! Thanks for providing a memorable home for the beginning of our honeymoon!

My wife and I stayed in Paul and Jane's condo for two nights at the end of our ten-year anniversary trip along the CA coast and loved it! The condo is beautiful: immaculately clean, extremely spacious for a one-bedroom, and includes a stunning remodeled kitchen. We enjoyed watching hummingbirds while eating breakfast on the sun patio, the short walk to the beach, and the close proximity to downtown Santa Barbara (a short drive or ride). In the evenings, the condo was a peaceful and quiet place to relax and kick back after exploring all day. Paul and Jane were communicative leading up to the trip and wonderful hosts during our stay. Because of our arrival time, Paul and Jane were not able to greet us in person at the condo, but Paul graciously walked me through everything over the phone. We would definitely recommend anyone staying here, and hope to be back one day in the future!
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 thats 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!!
