This artist's cottage is centrally located and sits on a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Arrive at any of SantaBarbara's main attractions in 5-10 minutes by car. Located just a 20 minute walk to Santa Barbara's finest downtown restaurants.Bus stop just a block away.
This charming Cottage was fully remodeled in 2012. The home is quiet, cozy and comfortable. Andrea is frequently away, but when she's there her main priority is that you enjoy your stay in paradise. The space is suitable for two as a queen bed with top quality linens are provided. A couple traveling with an infant under 12 months is OK too. It is possible to have a third guest stay on the couch but an additional $40 charge applies.
Guest will have access to their private bedroom and bath. Bathroom is not en suite, but located just outside the the bedroom in the hall. The living room is spacious with a large sectional and flat screen smart TV, loaded with Netflix, HBO GO, Amazon Prime, Pandora etc. Feel free to stretch out relax and enjoy a movie! Guests staying longer than three nights are welcome to use the laundry room. Kitchen use is generally not granted, however, there will be a mini fridge, coffee maker, and microwave in the bedroom for your convenience. Santa Barbara has excellent restaurants, markets, and food delivery services which can be recommended. Guests may also feel free to use the toaster oven and microwave in the kitchen, as well store any food items in the central fridge that do not fit in the mini fridge. Full Kitchen privileges (use of oven, stove, pots/pans, dishwasher etc) for guests staying beyond two weeks will be considered. Please be aware that two small, Boston Terriers live on the property. Andrea takes them just about everywhere, but when they are home they are confined to the kitchen and dining area by child gate (see pictures) and have access to the backyard. Guests who enter the kitchen must be dog friendly. Guests are welcome to use the backyard but seating is not set up as the landscape design is still in progress. If you would like to use the Santa Maria BBQ grill let me know. If you are a smoker, that's OK, but please do it outside and properly dispose of you butts in a trash bin.

I travel frequently and am away a minimum of 30% of the time on any given month. I am friendly and I hope you will approach me for any advice on what to do and where to go. This is my home town, so if you want advice on places to go off the beaten path, or hidden gems, I'm your girl! I'm also happy to share a glass of wine and some good conversation, but if you are here for space, you can count on absolute privacy as I generally stay in my bedroom area or kitchen when home. The living room is pretty much yours!
Plenty of free street parking. Be aware that street sweeping occurs on our side of the street between 1pm and 4 on Wednesdays and same time on Thursdays on the other side of the street. Please do not park in the driveway even if I am away. The driveway is narrow and bordered by a picket fence. This rule avoids damage to your vehicle and damage to my property. If you need to pull in partially to unload your belongings, this is perfectly ok.
Please no smoking indoors, outdoor smoking is OK, but properly dispose of your cigarette butts.
Please remember to close the kitchen gate as dogs are not allowed in that part of the house.
Please lock the door behind you.
Please ask permission before using the wood burning fireplace. Always use protective screen when fireplace is in use.
Please use the coasters provided on wood furniture in your bedroom.
Please do not leave soaking wet towels on the mattress.
Please take the beach towels provided (not the bath towels) for the beach -we have tar on our beaches.
If you get tar on your feet use the remover found in the medicine cabinate.
