Downtown Santa Barbara Vacation Rentals - La Maison - Overview
- SQF 1,700
Welcome to La Maison, one of the most sought out rentals in the California Riviera area, and for a good reason. This newly renovated Victorian is walking distance to all the best things. Take a short stroll to iconic Stearns Wharf, sunbathe on West Beach, surf at nearby Leadbetter. Dine on fresh local food, visit the Urban Wine Trail, and delight in boutique shopping. Swim, SUP, or kayak alongside dolphin pods or head to the Channel Islands to snorkel or scuba in our magnificent kelp forests.
Sunny, bright, big, and cheerful, this renovated Victorian style home has 3 generously sized bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. Large windows, high ceilings, hardwood floors, beautiful architecture, stunning artwork, and lots of Victorian details are found throughout the property! The abundance of natural light and open floor concept is ideal for you and your family and friends to hang out and socialize.
At 1700 square feet, La Maison offers roomy and private bedrooms with queen-sized beds, a trundle daybed with two twin-sized beds in a private sunroom, a full-size sofa bed in the living room, a queen-sized air mattress, and restrooms with double sinks and a claw-foot bathtub. Closets are in every room with robes, wooden hangers, luggage racks, extra pillows, blankets, a safe, and a pac ‘n play crib.
We provide all the comforts of a hotel with cruelty-free shampoo, conditioner, body soap, and lotion. There's central heating, air-conditioning, and a professional-grade washer and dryer. The space is fully furnished with quality linens, blankets, pillows, and comforters with covers! There are full sets of fluffy towels, hand cloths, washcloths, kitchen towels, and extra bed linens.
The sunroom has something for everyone: board games, a table for working on your laptop, a day bed to lounge in the sun like a cat, a private nook for business calls, and books to keep you entertained.
The living room offers plenty of seating around a large, flat-screen smart television with cable tv and Netflix. The property has great cell reception, fast WiFi, and a sound system that you can connect with via Bluetooth. Don’t miss the DIY photobooth tucked away in the corner—fake mustaches and silly glasses = a guest favorite!
Our gourmet kitchen is a favorite with people who love to cook. It offers granite countertops, a stainless steel fridge, water softener, water filter, a gas range, stove, microwave, coffee maker, water heater, blender, toaster, breakfast bar area, paper towels, dish soap, and dishwasher. It’s fully stocked with pots, pans, silverware, bowls, serving dishes, cooking utensils, bakeware, and full sets of dishes for 12 (plus plastic dishware for kiddos and plastic glasses for wine in the hot tub). There's also coffee, sugar, creamer, and a selection of teas.
Our dining room seats 10-12 people at a long, wooden table where memories will be made. The custom lighting creates atmosphere while the cushioned chairs and heirloom hutch makes the space feel comfortable and inviting. It's perfect for those big family dinners!
The front yard is surrounded by a white picket fence and features white roses, lavender, succulents, olive trees, and a flagstone patio with a table, chairs, and shade umbrella.
The professionally landscaped backyard boasts a large patio and peaceful space surrounded by a tall, private fence, a century-old avocado tree, olive trees, and native plants. It features a sunshade, hot tub, grill, sago palm tree, avocado tree, mandarin orange tree, atmospheric string lights, and seating for twelve.
It's rare to find a rental this big that's in the heart downtown Santa Barbara! La Maison is nestled between the beach and the downtown shopping corridor. It provides an ideal balance of quiet, privacy, and access to all that Santa Barbara has to offer.
The house is literally one block from the main thoroughfare, State St, and across the street from a coffee shop, fresh seafood restaurant, and late-night taco stand. Also across the street from La Maison is the Spanish Mission style outdoor shopping mall Paseo Nuevo, which offers everything one can imagine in the way of regionally sourced food, theater, museums, and handcrafted keepsakes—don’t miss out on the monthly Maker’s Fair!
Fun abounds along State Street’s roomy corridors—there are chic bars, wine tasting venues, breweries, coffee houses, bakeries, chocolatiers, brunch spots, and more!
Enjoy our Farmer's Market, a few blocks from the property, full of local organic veggies and fruits and unique flowers, every Saturday morning and Tuesday afternoon.
A short walk or quick ride on the Santa Barbara Trolley will take you down to popular Stearn's Wharf, East and West beaches, Los Banos swimming pool, and the Harbor where you can see sailboats from all over the world. You'll find volleyball on the beach, fresh and local cuisine, and sunshine year-round! Hop on a boat for a whale-watching adventure, rent kayaks and paddleboards, bikes, jet skis, Lil’ Toot boat tour, and more!
Whether you're coming for a festival, parade, wedding or just to enjoy the sights and restaurants with friends and family, La Maison is your ideal home away from home and Santa Barbara, a world-renowned destination, has everything to provide you the relaxing and fun-filled vacation you're hoping for!
You can walk everywhere as La Maison is in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. It's just a block from the popular Paseo Nuevo Outdoor Mall, State St., public transit, numerous sights, restaurants, tasting rooms, cafes, beaches, and much more.
The State Street Trolley stops just a couple blocks from the property and it will take you all around town and down to the beaches. The train station is about a 10-minute walk (0.6 miles) from La Maison. It's about 7 blocks to West Beach and Stearns Wharf.
There's a bus service and multiple public transit bus stops within a few blocks—totally walkable.
Rent a bike and enjoy our beach-side bike path and prevalent bike lanes. Feeling the mountains calling? Head up the many nearby trails to catch an iconic Santa Barbara sunset over the ocean—it’s not to be missed.
