Intimate Retreat w/ Cal King Bed & Bonus Sleeping Room - 1 Block to Beach!

Ideally located for a coastal getaway, the Santa Cruz Suite offers a delightful second-floor perch, only a 2-minute walk from the famous shores of sun-drenched East Beach.

The bedroom boasts a plush California-king sleigh bed and a flat-screen TV. Adjacent, a light-filled sitting room doubles as a sleeping area, complete with a twin daybed. A decorative electric fireplace adds tranquil ambiance.

Located in a small oceanside complex, amenities include a sunny communal area with outdoor dining tables, seating, and a barbeque grill.

LIVING AREA

A wall of windows floods the sitting area with natural light. A twin daybed with a twin trundle below can be used for additional sleeping space.

KITCHENETTE & DINING

The unit includes a mini-refrigerator and freezer, microwave, and coffee maker.

BEDROOM & BATH

French doors lead into the bedroom, where a California king bed lets you sleep like royalty. A comfy armchair offers a pleasant spot to read, and a 32in wall-mounted TV awaits for movie nights.

A full bathroom is configured with a tub/shower combination.

OUTDOOR AREAS

Enjoy dining and socializing in a sunny communal area with two dining tables, lounge chairs, benches, and a barbeque grill.

EXTRA AMENITIES & MORE DETAILS

Guest amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi and unassigned parking for one vehicle in the on-site lot.

Although this unit is not equipped with air conditioning, it is rarely needed with the mild summer temperatures at the beach. A ceiling fan in the bedroom ensures a pleasant breeze.

This unit is located on the second floor. Elevators are not available.

This prime beachside locale is a half a block from the Amtrak rails, and passing trains may occasionally be heard.

This unit is part of an older historical building with multiple units, so guests may hear noises from adjacent units. Several other units are available in the same property for rent to accommodate a group. Inquire if you need to sleep more than four people.

The home is also located near the train tracks (all Santa Barbara beachfront properties share this feature) and the 101 freeway. If you are sensitive to noise when you sleep, we recommend using the earplugs provided in each unit. While the noise doesn't bother most guests, we like to be transparent so there are no surprises.

THE LOCATION

Your rental is just 1 block from the golden sands of stunning East Beach. You're also just a block from the waterfront shuttle and a bike path that runs along the beachfront.

Enjoy the laid-back vibe in downtown Santa Barbara (a 5-minute drive), and head the same distance to Stearns Wharf for shopping, dining, fishing, or to simply enjoy the salty breeze and wonderful ocean views.

This rental is also just over a 10-minute walk for tasting sessions at Sanguis Winery, and local shops and eateries are even closer.

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

Loved the location, close to the beach, we walked to several places. At first appearance, walking the streets on the backside near the tracks felt a little sketchy, but we never felt unsafe or encountered anything to make us nervous. Continued to walk every day without issue.

The unit itself - I knew from the listing it was an old house, but it could use some touch-ups, it felt a little dingy. I could tell it was clean, just needs some TLC here and there. Mainly in the bathroom - cracked paint on baseboards and in corners, old jet tub, dingy tile. There was a musty old house smell overall. The linens were very comfy though.

The listing said they provided ear plugs but we didn’t see any. We just used our sound machine app, which was definitely needed - the neighbors in our house were loud every night when they came home and you can hear every little sound from adjacent units. And there was the train as the listing mentioned. We slept fine anyways.

Fortunately I paid with credit card points that discounted the overall cost, but if I had paid the full price posted on Vacasa I would feel a little shortchanged after all the fees that get tacked on. If there were no better options through Vacasa in the area I would stay again though which is why I gave 4 stars.
