“Just a perfect location with stunning mountain views”
Reviewed February 15, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My husband and I are returning to Santa Barbara after many years on the East Coast. Since we are looking for a new home, we decided to stay at Papa Dux, because of its downtown location, and because we wanted a local base to hunt for our new home from. We stayed in the upstairs apartment and we found the deck, with the beautiful mountain views to be such a lovely place to relax. Everything was there, fully equated kitchen, washer and dryer, and a very comfortable bedroom. The whole place "felt like home" and in fact by the time we left we had placed a bid on our own new home! We could walk to wonderful restaurants, up and down state street with all the shops and events, and we even had the chance to see events at the Santa Barbara film festival. Laura contacted us prior to our stay, with all the instructions we asked for, but unlike a hotel, where there is often constant noise, Papa Dux felt private. We would recommend staying there and yes, the five stars are well earned!
