Cota Casita

Charming California cottage in an ideal location for walking in downtown Santa Barbara!  Just two blocks from the center of Santa Barbara and the Paseo Nuevo Shopping Center.  Enjoy shopping at Paseo Nuevo and casual dining at one of the many restaurants such as Eureka and California Pizza Kitchen.  Or stroll through to State Street for night life, fine dining, art museums and theatres including the Granada, Lobero, and Arlington-- all only a few blocks away.  The nearest beach is only one mile away--catch the trolley ride from State Street to Stearns Wharf and miles of walking and bicycle paths along the water.

This 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, Spanish style bungalow is full of charm with hardwood floors,  rounded interior arch ways and crown moulding.  Although the home has the charm of an earlier era, the house has been updated with all of the necessary modern features.  Gather around the decorative fireplace in the main living area and relax on large couch in front of a flat screen television for a night at home.

Adjacent to this living space, guests will find plenty of room for dining at a large table for 6.  Through the next archway, the newly remodeled kitchen features all new cabinetry, countertops and stainless steel appliances.   There is even a little breakfast counter for two!

For guest convenience, there is an indoor laundry room adjacent to the  kitchen with a full size washer and dryer.  This room leads to the back patio with a sitting area and fruit trees for your enjoyment.

For comfortable sleeping, each bedroom features a queen size bed and a flat screen television for quiet relaxation.  

Perfect for a small family getaway or a home base for an extended business trip.  Come and enjoy the best of Santa Barbara in the heart of downtown!

Cozy Stay at the Cota Casita
Great location close to the restaurant & shops on State Street and all the activities associated with the harbor, pier, and beach. Grocery, pharmacy, and coffee shops all close. Quiet neighborhood. The decor of the house is beyond charming. The furnishings are up to date, comfortable, and in good working order. Kitchen is amazing with great appliances and all the utensils you will need. Bathroom is clean and stocked with plenty of towels. TV and internet work great! Open the windows and let the cool breezes flow through the house. Front and back porches are inviting and relaxing outdoor spaces. The front yard is packed with beautiful rose bushes and bougainvilleas. We've stayed at VRBO properties all over America and this is one of the best! We highly recommend if you are planning a stay in Santa Barbara.

Everything was wonderful!
They have thought of everything! This was the best equipped VRBO we have ever stayed at in the country. I give attention to the details and this home knocked it out of the park. Awesome. It is so lovely and we loved every moment there. Thanks again for everything!

Perfectly appointed California bungalow, walking distance to State Street.
The house is so charming! A classic Santa Barbara house, but brought up to high standards. The best kitchen we've ever had. Comfortable rooms for sleeping, reading, watching tv, listening to music. Very tasteful decor. It was just perfect!

Such a lovely cottage
The house is beautiful, and extremely well maintained. We booked for Thanksgiving and the kitchen did not disappoint for our holiday meal prep - the stove is a dream! Very impressed with the remodeled features in the home, but it also has classic Santa Barbara charm. One traveler tip - the driveway is quite narrow, so I wouldn't recommend any large vehicles. Street parking was easy to find though. Would happily stay here again.

We had a very relaxing stay at Cota Casita
The house in a quiet street was very stylishly equipped with lots of nice touches. The kitchen was very well stocked with very modern equipment. The garden was quiet and enclosed and we enjoyed fresh lime and oranges from the trees. The location - a few blocks from State Street - was ideal. The property managers were very prompt in responding to any issues we had. We will definitely be back!
