Craftsman Bungalow Santa Barbara

Set back off a quiet one-way lane in a lush private setting, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom guest house sits behind a charming, historic Craftsman-style home in the upper east of Santa Barbara, a mere two blocks away from the iconic Mission! 

Pets Welcome







The home is located on the Lower Riviera, a mere two blocks away from the iconic Santa Barbara Mission! A number of broad, stone steps descend through an impeccably manicured, terraced oasis of agaves, colorful birds-of-paradise, and native botanicals, leading to this secluded retreat. Remodeled throughout and transformed into a private and relaxing home, the serene setting sets the tone, while the home's all-new interior is warm and inviting. A covered porch is a welcoming entry point and will be a favorite spot to begin and end the day. The sounds of a neighboring fountain can often add an intrinsic touch of tranquility to enjoy.

A whimsical Smeg stove of Hermes orange anchors the kitchen, adding a cheerful pop of color and high performance. A raised granite breakfast bar makes a prime perch for a quick meal or to further keep an eye on meal prep. A custom oval dining table with upholstered chairs and a bench allows for flexible seating in the dining area. A portable Marshall wireless Bluetooth speaker adds vintage charm, allowing music to permeate every space; with the flip of a switch, the fireplace casts a warm glow in the living room outfitted with a flat-screen TV and a clever "pop-up" coffee table. A new set of Samsung front-loading washer and dryer units are hidden away in an adjacent closet for easy access.

In the primary suite, neutral grey tones are a calming backdrop to accompany a great night's sleep on a king-size Sealy foam mattress. If indulging in late-night movies in bed is on the vacationing agenda, the flat-screen tv assures that luxury can be checked off the list of vacation musts! The centerpiece of the en suite bathroom is the artisan-inspired walk-in shower of stacked stone tiles and glass. The second bedroom with queen-size bed is behind pocket doors with fully built-out closet. The second bathroom is just across the hall. Ceiling fans throughout will keep the home cool in the warmer months.  

The temperate climate of Santa Barbara makes it possible to enjoy outdoor activities year-round. Whether on foot or with the top down on the convertible, exploring historic neighborhoods, finding hidden parks (check out Franceschi Park!), stopping to smell the roses at The Santa Barbara Mission, or dropping down into a downtown tasting room, everything is within reach from Upper East Bungalow. Cheers!

Best Short Term Rental!
This is my all time favorite short term rental! It’s a beautiful spot and is the best appointed home I’ve ever seen. It’s immaculate and has top of the line appliances. They also have everything you could ever need for cooking, including things that are often missing in STR’s like a coffee grinder, a full set of plastic containers with locking lids, a new gas grill (outdoor barbeque), and they even have flutes for prosecco! I also loved coffee on the patio, ocean views from the master bedroom, the very comfortable bed, and the excellent shower. The setting is lovely, with terraced gardens bordering the stone steps. The location is great, too, with the Mission rose garden and historic Riviera theater close by. I enjoyed walking through the residential neighborhood, looking at the architecture, the huge variety of flowers, shrubs, and trees, and the ocean and mountain views. This home is only a 15-20 minute walk downtown, or just a few minutes by car to all of SB’s sights. I would definitely come back!
