Boat House at Miramar Beach - Lower Unit Santa Barbara

This property is located on the best part of Miramar Beach! Constructed of teak, mahogany and white spruce, accompanied by etched and stained glass windows, this unique cottage has been designed to look and feel like a well-built custom sailing vessel.






The Boathouse—Lower Unit (1 Bed/1 Bath with a sleeper sofa in living room). Please inquire if you would like to book both Upper & Lower levels together (2 Bed/ 2 Bath) or see listing titled "Entire Unit".

Paradise on the beach! Sitting right on the sand at one of the most beautiful semi-private beaches in Santa Barbara, “The Boathouse” is the perfect retreat! This property is located on the best part of Miramar Beach!  Constructed of teak, mahogany and white spruce, accompanied by etched and stained glass windows, this unique cottage has been designed to look and feel like a well-built custom sailing vessel. The property consists of two separate one bedroom/one bathroom units joined by a connected stairway inside and a common entrance from the outside. Each unit can be rented separately (sleeping 2 adults and 2 children) or together for a maximum of 6 to 8 people.  Please note that the lower unit does not have a railing on the deck, so this may not be a suitable choice for young children. Please inquire for rates on entire unit. 

The Lower Unit sits closest to the sand.  Views are unobstructed from the deck as there is no railing and just sandy beach below. During high tide you may just be able to dangle your feet in the water from the deck!  Relax and enjoy the amazing view as you listen to the sound of the surging waves. Let the waves lull you to sleep in a comfortable queen size bed.  For your entertainment, this cozy cabin is also equipped with a television, cable TV and wifi.  However, you will be too busy enjoying the outdoors!  Just a few steps to the sand, where plenty of beach accessories await for your enjoyment—chairs, umbrellas, kayaks and boogie boards included. 

When you are ready to enjoy a meal, a small kitchen provides all that you need for cooking or step up to the roof deck for your barbequing pleasure! (Deck is shared with upper unit)  If eating out at great restaurants is more your style, Montecito’s lower Village is only a mile away and downtown Santa Barbara is a short 10 minute drive.

When flying into the area, the property is easily accessible from Santa Barbara Airport (only about 20 minutes away) and Los Angeles (90 miles south). 

The Boat House is truly a relaxing place to get away for it all!  Come and escape to Miramar Beach!

Loved the Boat House!
“We loved our stay in the Boat House. Location is perfect right on Miramar Beach. We had two young children with us and it suited our needs well. Things to note - kitchen is small making it challenging to cook and there is no dining table - just two counter stools. This wasn't an issue for us, but may be for others. Can't wait to go back!”

Fabulous Location!
“Fabulous location. I would stay there again.”
Aug 2020
We had a fantastic week. Everything about the house was exactly as advertised. Location, comfort, and communication could not have been better. I consider myself a pretty tough customer when it comes to hotels/accommodations, I only have positive things to say.

Amazing place! Would highly recommend.

Great stay
Spent a few days here with my family, the location is great. The bed was comfortable, the overall feel is cozy, but comfortable. The back bedroom tv does not get live stream due to weak internet signal, but not a big deal. There are 2 kayaks, boogie boards, beach chairs and beach toys available for the little ones so don't bother bringing them. Kitchen has all the basics if you plan on cooking. Would love to come back sometime.

Tranquility at the Beach
Thus beach house called the Boathouse was a perfect choice for our Christmas week. The bedroom feels just like your staying on a yacht...bed is so comfy. Waking up to a sun filled living room watching the waves roll in was so very soothing. The beach walks, the books read, and the fabulous meals prepared made for an absolutely perfect retreat preparing us to enter the next decade. Happy 2020!

Perfect location, we walked miles on the beach every morning and evening. Just a few doors down on the sand from the glorious Rosewood Miramar Hotel, which we frequented often. Perfect distance to Montecito shops and restaurants, a drive to Rincon, wine tasting in Los Olivos, and a day in the Funk Zone. It was perfection in every way!

Miramar Beach is an absolute gem
Fairly secluded but one of the best stretches of beach to walk or run. Love the location of this unit and waking up each morning to the waves crashing 20 feet from our window. Super convenient location to freeway and downtown Montecito.

What a great location on the beach
The home is small, but what a great location on the beach. The place had a good vibe and the neighboring homes are also quite nice.

This place is simply wonderful
A perfect little getaway on a relaxing beach. The communication with Sheri was prompt and helpful at all times. Little issues with the toilet were solved immediately. You can't ask for more, when you're looking for a little time out.
