The Beach Penthouse is located in the most desirable location in Santa Barbara, just steps away from the beach, Public Pool with large kitty pool, Stearns Wharf, Harbor, world-class dining, and downtown shops, including our own local farmers market. Leave your car and associated traffic/parking worries behind. We even offer RARE off street reserved parking.
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 Beach 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.
The Beach Penthouse is new and done in the Tuscan Provence style with hand cast plaster, faux paining, 10 feet vaulted ceilings and hand-selected antiques giving it both a romantic and European feeling. A reflection of the charm of the days bygone. The Penthouse 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 reflectign 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, and limestone floors all add to its ambiance.

(A FEW HELPFUL HINTS: The Beach Penthouse is one level with NO lofts. 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 or railroad tracks. We are in an upscale residential enclave in the West Beach Area of Santa Barbara.)
