El Jardin Pequeno Santa Barbara

Treat yourself to a memorable stay at El Jardin Pequeno, for the fun of it! 






El Jardin Pequeno 

Enter the wild and wacky world of Jeff Shelton! 

Vacation Rentals of Santa Barbara is proud to manage a home built by this world-renowned, Santa Barbara local architect, with a one-of-a-kind way of looking at the world. His ingenious fusion of whimsical artistry and vibrant function culminate in some of the most well-recognized buildings and happy homes in downtown Santa Barbara.
El Jardin Pequeno is the two bedroom one bathroom home located on the second level of a 4-story building known as “El Jardin,” in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. From street level, ascend the colorful steps that lead to a memorable retreat with plenty of personality. Morrocan tile, bright use of hand tooled glass, and custom wrought iron in varying shapes, are just the beginning of the signature style that makes staying at a Shelton-designed home a lively and fun experience for each and every guest. 

Cozy up on the blue velvet couch for movie night in front of a large flat screen tv. Whip up a yummy meal in the super-efficient and fully equipped kitchenette with dual burner induction cooktop, microwave, and raised bar  One of the most stunning features is the unique suspended dining table with a smooth piano finish, and an irregular whimsical shape that makes game night or mealtime amusing. Hidden away is a full-capacity front-loading washer and dryer, perfect for extended stays or to keep towels ready for the next oceanfront outing. 

A sunny bedroom with a queen-size bed has the added sleeping convenience of a twin bunk bed to sleep four guests comfortably. In a second bedroom, enjoy a restful night’s sleep, or a well-deserved breakfast in bed, in the comfortable queen-size bed. From either room, enjoy mountain views over Santa Barbara's red tile roofs, or awake to sunrise casting a warm glow over the city. A shared hall bathroom completes the offerings of this cool city apartment-style retreat.

Head out the front door to explore all that Santa Barbara has to offer. Take a self-guided tour of the other Shelton-designed homes, gather organic ingredients for dinner at the local Farmer’s Market, sip tasty wines in the Funk Zone, or simply stroll over to nearby State Street, alive with energy and world-class shopping, eateries, galleries, theater and more.

Treat yourself to a memorable stay at El Jardin Pequeno, for the fun of it!

Additionally available upon special request is a third bedroom suite at ground level that can accommodate two more guests.  A king-size bed, television, bathroom with walk-in shower, and ample size closet appoint this private suite nicely. [Additional rates may apply]

Fabulous location for walking all around SB. Exactly as described which is always much appreciated. One bedroom with a queen and bunkbeds, second bedroom with a queen, and sort of a futon cave in the living room. all on the same floor.

This Place Rocks!
Great location, great apartment. When we showed up one chair of the bistro set outside was missing. Texted them just as a FYI and they had it replaced the same day. Great renters. Would rent from them anytime. Thank you !
