Luxe Villa in Funk Zone | Outdoor Kitchen, Mountain View, 2 Blocks to Beach

Enjoy true California living 2 blocks from the beach at this gorgeous 2BR/2BA Mediterranean-style villa -- half of a two-villa duplex.

Prepare dinner at the outdoor kitchenette with barbeque grill, mini-fridge, and sink, then dine alfresco at the four-person table. As the sun sets, gather around the gas fireplace and take in lovely views of the Santa Ynez Mountains.

ABOUT THE HOME

Terracotta bricks welcome you to your Mediterranean-inspired villa, where an open floor plan lets you gather with ease. Open the turquoise doors to the wrought-iron balcony and feel the ocean breeze in the living area. On cool winter nights, enjoy the warm ambience of the gas fireplace and watch a movie on the 54in flat-screen TV.

Prepare a delicious Mediterranean feast in the dreamy gourmet kitchen featuring granite countertops and state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances including a Dacor oven, Sub-Zero side-by-side fridge, and a gas stove.

Store local vintages in the wine chiller, and then gather around the large kitchen island for a tasting. In the nearby dining room, up to six can convene at the long wooden table beneath a wrought-iron chandelier.

Or head to the upper balcony and fire up the grill for an alfresco feast. Then light the fireplace and watch the stars come out over the mountains.

This rental sleeps six guests in two bedrooms, both with their own en-suite bathrooms.

The upper-level master bedroom is a private retreat with a queen bed, ceiling fan, gas fireplace, and balcony access. The spacious en-suite master bathroom features a walk-in shower with Moroccan tile work, jetted tub, and a separate water closet.

The second bedroom is on the main level and has a queen bed, a queen daybed, and a wrought-iron balcony overlooking Santa Barbara Street. The en-suite bathroom (also accessed from the hallway) has a walk-in shower.

Guest amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, a full-size washer/dryer, and garage parking for two vehicles.

Although this home is not equipped with air conditioning, it is rarely needed with Santa Barbara's mild weather and portable fans are available if needed.

THE LOCATION

Located in the heart of The Funk Zone, you'll have plenty of dining and entertainment options. Metropulos Market & Deli, Topa Topa Brewing Co., Lafond Winery, Pali Wine Co., and Shalhoob's Funk Zone Patio are all just a short stroll away.

You're also just 2 blocks from the beach! Or walk to iconic Stearns Wharf, with its shopping and dining delights and the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History.

For even more fun, check out the Old Mission Santa Barbara (2 miles) or rent a bike and go for a ride along the oceanside bike path. The Santa Barbara Zoo and Andree Clark Bird Refuge are also less than 2 miles away.

You must be 21 years or older to rent this property.

Awesome house, even more incredible location!

Love this place! Convenient, super comfy, totally equipped gorgeous kitchen! Plenty of room and privacy for two couples. Three blocks to the beach for a stroll to the end of Stearn’s Wharf! Fantastic restaurants all within walking distance. After a day we felt like locals. Do yourself a favor. Just book this place. You’ll be happy you did! Can’t wait to enjoy it again!

The place is even better than the photos! Walking distance to great food, wine and more. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This is one of the best locations to explore all of what Santa Barbara has to offer. Within walking distance of State Street and in the heart of the Funk Zone, if you’re looking to explore Santa Barbara, it is tough to find a better location. The views of the mountains from the rooftop deck are amazing. Had a wonderful stay, home is clean and management company was readily available for any questions. 10/10!

Wonderful 2-bdrm townhome in the Funk Zone within easy walking distance of the beach, shops, restaurants, bars and State Street. Super nice to have a 2 car space in enclosed garage. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Beautiful spanish style house near the beach and funkzone. Garage parking is ideal as is the second floor outdoor terrace space to relax and grill.
Kitchen is perfect and living area was comfortable. You can walk to the beach and house is in the funkzone which has great restaurants and wine studios to sip wine in the afternoon or evening. Cannot say enough good things about the place. I would stay there again next time in SB. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Spent a month in this luxury villa. It is well maintained and shows signs of a recent remodel. All upgrades are of top quality. Although I stayed in the main floor my guests were overjoyed with the shower. Mine also was wonderful. Turnkey was quick to respond to minor problems amd I appreciated this. The location could not be better. After staying in VRBO’S for 10 years I have an excellent knowledge of the beach/town area.

Only complaint I have is that the living room furniture was very uncomfortable for young an old alike. Hopefully this will be resolved as I personally spoke to turnkey about this. This is the only reason I am giving this unit only four stars This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

It wasn’t the best, we walked in and I saw hair on toilet seats. I saw hair on the bed sheets. I had to disinfect everything I came on a vacation but it seemed liked I was ending up doing all the cleaning while they take a bomb for cleaning fees!

Dave J. Apr 2021
We enjoyed everything about this villa. The kitchen was awesome, bedrooms & bathrooms were spacious, and the rooftop gas fireplace was a pleasant surprise (although it only worked part of the time). Great location right next to the Funk Zone - easy walk to many restaurants, tasting rooms, brew pubs and the beach/boardwalk.

Topic says it all! Walking distance from beach, breweries and really good restaurants. The condo is in great condition and pristine clean. We slept really well as the bedrooms are far apart. The balcony is a very relaxing place to hang out. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The house was even better than the description online. It is a perfect location. The house has plenty of room, extremely clean, well furnished and the amenities were first class. I would highly recommend this property for somebody looking for a nice, safe getaway in Santa Barbara. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Luxurious home in an interesting neighborhood with lots of activities. Very clean upon arrival. Excellent pre-arrival instructions and information. Will return to stay at this location again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Mike O. Oct 2020
Beautiful home with nice parking garage.The hot water heater wasn`t working when we arrived but the Turnkey rep had it taken care of asap.The faucets and drains in most sinks need attention. Surprised there weren`t any beach towels, there`s no smoke alarm in master bedroom, the closet is missing a socket cover,more than 2 towels per guests would be nice. Just seems like attention to detail is lacking. Fun location, easy to walk and bike around town. Shaloobs is right around the corner. They have great beer and food! We weren`t sure about a vacation during COVID but were very happy to see that Santa Barbara is taking extra precautions. More mask wearing than anywhere else we`ve been and tables were all spaced at least 6 feet apart. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

- Centrally located to some of the best spots in SB (The Funk Zone, blocks from the beach, quick bike/car ride to downtown SB)
- Rented bikes just a few blocks away and could get everywhere needed on the bikes
- House was great, love the rooftop
- House was very clean - felt very safe there even during COVID
- TurnKey was very communicative throughout our whole stay This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This is a really great property. Everything is top-grade; the kitchen is especially wonderful. The location is superb, close to the beach and State Street. Although it is near the freeway, the traffic noise is barely discernible. The topside deck with fireplace is a great place to hang out. It is a very clean, well-decorated unit. Property management is very responsive. Loved vacationing in this home. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had a wonderful time celebrating my 50th Birthday at this home and all over Santa Barbara. Great house & Location for getting out in SB. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The condo unit was spacious, well-appointed, and in excellent condition. We found the supplies to be a little skimpy (toilet paper, paper towels, soap, kitchen equipment and coookware). Otherwise, our stay was very pleasant. We would rent this unit again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Roya B. Aug 2018
We enjoyed our stay at this property. This house was pretty much everything it was described to be. It is trendy and new and well maintained and located in the heart of funk zone. It is walking distance from the beach, shopping and dining areas and surrounded by wineries and great restaurants. I would go back to this property and I would recommend it to others.
