Captain’s Cottage

Newly remodeled with thoughtfully curated design, this one-bedroom plus unit of a restored triplex is a fresh, modern version of a classic California bungalow. Perfect location for a Santa Barbara rental on a quaint and quiet residential street within one block of the beach and harbour and a short walking distance to Stearns Wharf, the famous Funk Zone, and State Street. This back unit is hidden behind private garden gates resulting in a serene setting. 

The living room centers on friendly gatherings, with a large flat-screen television framed by custom cabinetry. Colorful art and found objects bring the nautical theme to life, adding a touch of whimsy at every turn. In the bedroom is a second television and a comfortable queen-size bed to assure a great night’s sleep. The remodeled bathroom is luxurious with dual sinks and a large walk-in glass shower equipped with a safety bar.

The focal point of the galley kitchen is the vintage O’Keefe and Meritt 4-burner range with dual ovens and broiler unit. In a lyrical play on the past and present, the white enamel and shiny chrome stand in contrast to the contemporary grey quartz counters and modern appliances. Well equipped for casual meals or fine dining in a relaxed setting, the eat-in kitchen is a welcoming hub. 

Step down into a friendly sunroom with a daybed and French doors leading to the enclosed backyard.  The daybed has a trundle bed underneath, meaning it can be transformed into a Queen-sized bed for the occasional overnight guest. Enjoying a sunrise cup of coffee, or dining under the stars here, will be the most delightful way to begin and end the day. Laundry room is shared between triplex tenants.

For the active visitor, the coastal beauty is best enjoyed on foot, or hop on the two bikes provided to cruise around. How fun! Explore the surrounding neighborhoods where gentle breezes draw the sun enthusiasts to the wide stretches of sandy beach, volleyball courts, Stearns Wharf, the Harbor, and a myriad of recreation options.

As part of any visit to Captain’s Cottage, there are a couple of “must-do’s.”  Wake up early for a sweet and savory breakfast at the world-renowned local favorite, Sambo’s. Try the 1957 Breakfast Sandwich or irresistible syrup-drenched Tiger Bites! Stroll through The Funk Zone, where the eclectic sub-culture of artisan shops, wine tasting rooms, award-winning micro brewpubs, and trendy eateries offer the unexpected. A visit to The MOXI - The Wolf Museum of Exploration and Innovation, makes for a fun-filled day for all ages.

Finally, off-street one-car garage parking and laundry room access add convenience for every guest. In the vibrant West Beach neighborhood, Captain’s Cottage is a welcoming vessel for the coastal traveler. Be swept away by temperate Santa Barbara breezes at this superlative home away from home. Captain’s Cottage assures smooth sailing! (Please note: the garage will accommodate a small sedan only, street parking is available, subject to availability)

Captains Cottage
We had a great stay at the Captains Cottage. Its in a perfect location one block from the beach and a short walk to all the great restaurants in Santa Barbara. The cottage was well stocked and beautifully appointed. The bikes provided were a nice addition. We would definitely stay at the cottage again !!
