Guest house in Santa Barbara
The Santa Barbara Cottage
The Cottage is a quiet oasis away from home where you can experience all of the magic Santa Barbara has to offer. This space has a keypad entry, full kitchen, dining area, bedroom, a private bath and is around the corner from the main house. We are located far enough above the excitement of State Street to have quiet, yet close enough to be immersed in the energy of it all in just ten minutes (2 miles). Enjoy a 15 minute walk to the Santa Barbara Mission with stunning ocean views along the way.

Private room in Goleta
Private entrance bedroom with private bath & patio
Newly remodeled large bedroom (with cal king bed), bathroom, and patio with private entrance and self check-in. While sitting outside, enjoy the view of the nature preserve and listen for tree frogs and, if you're lucky, coyotes, too. There is a 1.5 mile walking path across the street offering bird watching, Los Carneros Lake, and the historic Stow House. Take a different path (.4 mi each way) toward local @CaptainFattys microbrewery (check IG for wood fired pizza and events).
