Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Welcome to our bright & sunny 1 king bedroom & 1 full bathroom Affordable Beach Penthouse.

There are over 100 1BR/1BA vacation rentals in the 'Santa Barbara Area' and of these, 77 are supposed to be in 'Santa Barbara'. So how do you chose - location, location, location! And then compare our quality and price.

We are not in Carpentaria, Goleta, Summerland or Montecito. We are also not in the suburbs of Santa Barbara such as San Roque, Mission Canyon, Los Positas etc.

We are in the coveted Historic West Beach area, in a high end residential area, steps from the beach, Las Banos Public Pool, Stearns Wharf, Harbor, world-class dining, and downtown shops, including our own local farmers market. We are not next to the railroad tracks, highway or on a commercial thoroughfare.

Leave your car and associated traffic/parking worries behind. We even offer RARE off street reserved parking.

The Beach Penthouse resides in a historical turn of the century building and retains the charm of the day’s bygone. It has been lovingly restored to reflect Santa Barbara's style including 10 feet vaulted ceilings and whitewashed wood floors through out giving it both a romantic and European feeling.

Within blocks are a European deli and market, bakery and sandwich shop, three wineries and a grocery store leaving little need to leave the neighborhood. In addition there are bike rentals, Segway rentals, peddle surrey rentals, a skate park, the Chase Palm Park with a merry-go-round and the site of a craft fair each Sunday that lines the beach boardwalk. The Santa Barbara Zoo and the Bird Sanctuary are an easy mile and half walk. If you are traveling to Santa Barbara by train the Affordable Penthouse is two blocks from the train station and there is a car rental agency two blocks away in case you want to explore the Santa Ynez Valley wine country. If you are tired of walking, all of these attractions can be reached by a local 25 cents-a-ride shuttle bus that runs up State Street and along the ocean front from the harbor to the zoo.

Our Affordable Beach Penthouse offers 800 square feet, is newly remodeld and offers a fully equipped kitchen done in high quality construction that includes carrera marble countertops and custom cabinets along with all appliances: stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, coffee machine, blender, toaster, to name a few.

The romantic bedroom offers an orthopedic king bed with a glass door that leads to a private veranda with bistro set, beach chairs and barbeque grill.

The bathroom has a shower tub combination of carrera marble and is brand new and sparking clean.

The living room offers a 42' high definition TV and adjoins the dining area and fully equipped kitchend, including a desk with complimentary wireless internet access and bright windows with City skyline views.

The Getaway also has its own washer and dryer and very rare at the beach, private reserved parking.

When you book with us, you are booking with the owners, which means you are not dealing with a management company, or a 3rd party call center, or a computerized mobile application. Often times the 3rd party does not live in town or even know the property. We know our properties intimately, as we both own and manage them, and have a 15 year track record. Our reviews speak for themselves, including our cleanliness.

Upon booking, directions are emailed along with our contact information, Restaurant Recommendations, Winery and Activities Recommendations and Welcome Notes providing detailed information about the Affordable Penthouse are also provided. In this way, you can drive right to the Affordable Penthouse, which has a lock box where you’ll use your unique code to enter. There is no need to set up an appointment. Inside, you'll enjoy premium amenities: shampoo, soaps, paper & cleaning products and 5 star quality towels, linens and cleanliness.

And we offer complimentary champagne upon your arrival.

We welcome a comparison to the 100+ vacation rentals and Hotels as we are unmatched in location, quality and price!

Penthouse in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in your Penthouse.

It was easy access by car or foot to where we wanted to go.

Only problem was that there was an electric barbaque instead of a gas one.

The unit was very clean, and we really appreciated the bottle of champange.

Great beach location, beautiful penthouse suite!

  • 5 of 5

Very sweet, cozy penthouse suite with all the comforts of a home.

Full kitchen stocked with all the essentials, living area inviting and comfortable. King bed was "to die for", most comfortable we had experienced when not our own bed. A couple of concerns for futures travelers. There was one modest fan and a couple of wall heaters, while this was not an issue in March for us, in warmer or colder months this could be an issue. Also, very steep flights of stairs (3), hence the penthouse, but if stairs would be an issue, may want to stay down below. Overall, thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would come again!

Perfect couples spot

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect, just 5 minute walk to harbor and a little farther to wharf and State Street. Also transit trollies that go along waterfront and State Street.

Well equipped and very quiet and private.

STAY HERE!- Great Hillside views & location

  • 5 of 5

Cute, comfortable, well appointed , quiet & perfect location for our Santa Barbara vacation. We would definitely rent again. Only downside was that the internet was slow at times so we took it as a sign that we shouldn't be working!

Car: not necessary

There are 900+ vacation rentals in the 'Santa Barbara Area'. Vacation rentals pricing follow the same trend as real estate pricing - location, location. The farther out you go out of Santa Barbara, the less expensive the real estate and the better the vacation rental pricing.

We are located in the best area of Santa Barbara - the Historic West Beach Area - 2 blocks to the Beach and downtown Santa Barbara, yet not on a commercial thoroughfare, not next to the railroad tracks or not adjacent a highway.

In addition to location, look at our property and compare amenities and pricing. We are unmatched.
