The Beach Getaway is a rare retreat in both its location and luxurious amenities. A winning combination of location, quality and price!
We are located in the most desirable location in Santa Barbara, the Historic West Beach Area, steps away from the Beach, Stearns Wharf, Harbor, the public swimming pool with large kiddy pool, Las Banos Public Pool, World-class dining, and downtown shops, including our own local farmer's market. Leave your car and parking worries behind.
Across the street is a European deli and market. Around the corner is a bakery and sandwich shop and within two blocks are three wineries and a grocery store leaving little need to leave the neighborhood.
Within a few blocks are bike rentals, Segway rentals, peddle surrey rentals, a skate park, a public swimming pool and Chase Palm Park with a merry-go-round and the site of a craft fair each Sunday. The Santa Barbara Zoo and the Bird Sanctuary are an easy mile and half walk. If you are traveling to Santa Barbara by train we the Beach Getaway 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.
The Beach Getaway resides in historical turn of the century building and retains the charm of the days bygone. My husband and I spent a year working with craftsmans and designers to create a unique vacation rental reflecting the style of the early 1900's and Santa Barbara. The hand cast plaster gives it both a romantic and European feeling. And the 10-foot ceilings, Waterford fireplace, hard wood and limestone floors all add to its ambiance. You will not find a comparable vacation rental for the price - location, quality and price.
Exquisite antique furnishings were hand selected and imported from Europe. One bedroom offers a French king mahogany bed with matching nightstands. It also has a small desk with wireless internet access. The second bedroom offers a queen walnut bed with glass doors that lead to a private terrace with garden views.
Each bedroom is complimented with a full bath. The bathrooms are immaculate - all new with limestone floors, granite countertops and French tiles.
The sparkling new & open kitchen has hardwood floors and granite counter tops with a cook top range, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. Its granite counter tops include a dining area for 5.
The warm & cozy living room has wood floors, couch with full pullout bed, TV, DVD and stereo.
Enjoy the views, through the glass door to the large private courtyard and potted flowers. The courtyard has an Italian fountain and green shrubbery that can be enjoyed on chaise lounges and wrought iron dining table and chairs. A large gas grill has also been provided for enjoyment of our local flavors.
The Beach Getaway is a rare high quality vacation destination in the heart of Santa Barbara! Enjoy all the comforts and privacy of a home for less than the price of a hotel.
(A few helpful hints when comparing us to others. The Beach Getaway is on the ground floor, 1 level, with FULL bathrooms and bedrooms, NO lofts or stairs. We also offer private reserved parking, as opposed to parking on the street which is a challenge being so close to the beach. Finally, we are not located on a commercial thorough fare, next to the Highway (APS or 101) or railroad tracks. We are in an upscale residential enclave in the West Beach Area, in Santa Barbara, 2 blocks to the Beach and State Street.)
