Overview
Condo/Apartment -
Studio, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
Santa Barbara, California
A hip hideaway in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara, four blocks up from the beach(five walking blocks). This artist designed studio apartment is small but beautiful. The apartment has exclusive use of the front porch of a lovely craftsman style house on a charmingly landscaped, fully enclosed private property in the center of the entertainment district . The elegantly designed corner couch is unusual. A drawer pulls out to convert it to a fabulously comfortable queen size bed. There is HDTV, WIFI, washer/dryer and gated private off street parking. BBQ on your porch, eat fresh fruit from the fruit trees and use the free bicycles for car free, stress free enjoyment. The owner grew up in the house (and also happens to be the artist). Relax and feel pampered in this thoughtfully re-designed and well loved home.

This is a great little place. Easy access to everything. We enjoyed the front porch and having off-street parking. The host communicates quickly and is very helpful. We only stayed two nights but would feel comfortable staying for a longer period of time. You get a washer/dryer, fridge, hot plate, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, toaster and dishes/utensils. You can...

My wife and I just returned from staying in the Baby Dux for ten days. If you plan a relatively long stay and can deal with a relatively small space, this is a good choice. it is very well located just one block from State Street (main street) and it is a five block walk to Stearns Pier (the waterfront)....

My spouse and I had a wonderful, relaxing stay in the Baby Dux. The property is as described, about the size of a small hotel room, with the addition of a functional kitchenette and a roomy front porch with seating for four. I drank my tea in the early morning sitting on the porch while my husband slept undisturbed in...

POLICIES/INFORMATION:

Once you are booked we send a detailed confirmation email that you should look over carefully. It includes driving directions and a legal waiver for using the bicycles. Your reply constitutes our agreement.

There are only two major house rules: That you understand that you are renting one of three apartments in a house and that this is a poor choice for loud partying. Reasonable consideration keeps it a peaceful refuge for everyone. The other rule is a strong one: absolutely no smoking in the house! Smoking outside is fine as long as it’s considerate of other guests who might be annoyed by the smoke and if nearby windows or doors (where smoke might drift into the interior) are shut. There is a $1000 charge for detectable cigarette smoke.
