The Yellow Loft is a whimsical, three-story delight featuring iconic architectural details and plenty of natural light. Situated in the famous Cota Street Studios complex, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom home is less than three blocks away from State Street Promenade and all the downtown happenings!

The first floor's design focuses on being an adaptive space with multiple uses. A queen-size bed, armoire, and full bathroom lie in a nook on the far side of the room. This unique bedroom configuration can be partitioned off with curtains for privacy! In the main space, a large table sits in the middle of the room, ideal for those who wish to craft, paint, and create. It can also function as a desk for guests who need to work remotely while on vacation. For the musically inclined, a piano is a welcome amenity for guests to play their favorite melodies. Complete with a chair to curl up with a good book, this space brings a new meaning to multi-functional. The crown jewel of this space is the large round blue door that, when opened, allows a fresh breeze inside.

The main living area is up a flight of stairs to the second floor. Soaked in natural light, this level is truly the heart of the home. The living room offers plenty of seating options for enjoying a good book, movie, or conversation. The four-top table in the dining space is perfect for savoring a delicious meal made in the fabulous green kitchen. The family chef will be pleased with open shelving and all the necessary modern conveniences for cooking a great meal. Also on this level is an outdoor patio space with a built-in barbecue and a dining table for dining al-fresco. 

The third and final level is the primary suite. The bedroom features a queen-sized bed, a sitting area, and an adjustable desk. There is a small balcony, ideal for enjoying morning coffee and taking in the sights and sounds of downtown living. The primary bathroom has a soaking tub and a walk-in shower; the walk-in closet off the bathroom is also where the laundry facilities are conveniently located. Out the window, the mountain views from this level are hard to beat!

Because this home is centrally located, it would be fun to forgo the car and opt for a B-Cycle bike or quick walk instead. However, for the occasions that a vehicle is required, a convenient, private one-car garage is attached to the unit for easy access. Secure gated guest parking is also available.

Take advantage of the best Santa Barbara offers while staying in this iconic Jeff Shelton work of art! The Yellow Loft is full of whimsy and delight- perfect for a memorable Santa Barbara vacation!

Yellow Loft review
My husband and I rented the Yellow Loft for six weeks and found it to be extremely comfortable, with well appointed furnishings, kitchen ware, and bedding. It was light and bright and very clean. Staying in a property designed by a local architect was fun and inspiring! The location walkable to State Street, the Saturday Farmers Market, the beach, restaurants, etc, was splendid.
