À propos de ce logement
Our bright, family friendly, 2BR/1B apt is the top floor of a Spanish fourplex and 1 mile from the beach . In the heart of town, walk to cafes, shops and historical sites. Backyard, playroom and 2 cats (in need of affection and feeding) are included.
Big windows in our living room offer beautiful mountain views and let in tons of light. Our place has one bedroom with a queen bed and the other bedroom has two twins, making it perfect for families. The twin beds are few inches shorter than normal. We can provide a standard twin bed if you need it. Both bedrooms will have open lower closet space so you can comfortably store your things (we use the upper closets for storage). Our fenced in backyard has a big lounge area with plenty of seating for guests. Feel free to eat ripe fruit and vegetables from our front yard garden. As noted earlier we are right down town and on a corner with one two lane street so you will hear some traffic noise if the windows are open. This is our home so it is not "vacation rental" perfect and but it is clean, uncluttered and comfortable. We have a basement playroom complete with a convertible game table (pool/air hockey/ping pong) and a collection of music instruments. We have boogie boards, scooters, basketballs, two kids bikes, helmets and hula hoops. Be sure to enjoy our upstairs balcony under the shade of our neighbor's giant fig tree. Our home is a warm, fun and family friendly.

We will be traveling out of town during your stay, so sadly we will not be able to meet you. Our neighbor will greet you and let you in at time an agreed upon time. We will be reachable by email.
We are located one block from the beautiful, historical Santa Barbara Courthouse, Clock Tower (360 degree views of the city) and Sunken Gardens (Friday evenings in the summer there are free public movies on the lawn). We are three blocks from State Street, the heart of the city, which is loaded with boutiques, cafes and Tuesday afternoon Farmer's Market. We are three blocks from the Santa Barbara Art Museum and many fine art galleries. The first Thursday evening of every month enjoy the Art Walk (maps are provided) where art galleries in our neighborhood host new exhibit openings. We are also three blocks from Kid's World (a great park with a large sandy playground) and Alice Keck Park Garden (a beautiful botanical garden with a lovely duck and turtle pond). The beach and Stearns Warf are a 10 minute bike ride away. At the end of the pier is our amazing Sea Center where you can see and learn about local sea life. The Santa Barbara Mission and Rose Garden (perfect location for ocean views and a picnic) are also about a 10 minute bike ride away. We are pretty much perfectly located to easily enjoy everything Santa Barbara has to offer with out getting in a car. Our four unit apartment building has a wonderful mix of friendly and quiet neighbors. We are the only family in the building and everyone is wonderful and kind to our children and cats.
The downtown area we live in is easily explored by foot, bike or car. There is free downtown trolley that runs up and down State Street (three blocks away). We are 3/4 mile from the train station.
Our price reflects a great value because we will need you to feed and give some love to our two very friendly cats, Rufus (grey striped, with a few extra toes) and Norbert (black and petite). They are mellow, free range, indoor/outdoor cats with no litter box. They come and go through their kitchen cat door. They eat twice a day (we will provide all cat food). If you want to leave for a few days they have a self-feeder that can be used for 2 day trips. If you want to leave for longer than that we can arrange for a neighbor to feed them as long as we have some advance notice.
Please, no smoking anywhere on the property, including balconies and basement playroom. Feel free to play the piano, guitars and drums (please leave the mutes on the drums to keep the noise down for our wonderful neighbors). We just ask that you treat our home and our neighbors with the same respect you give your own. No pets please, as we want Rufus and Norbert to feel safe at home.
