The Cottage at West Beach - Coastal Designer Style in the Heart of Santa Barbara

Located just half a block off the beach and 10 minutes from the heart of downtown Santa Barbara, The Cottage at West Beach is a sleek contemporary jewel in the Paradise Retreats' exclusive collection.

Completely redesigned and rebuilt in 2013, this unit has been completely transformed into a cool modern version of the classic beach bungalow. Gracious and comfortable, the design choices have taken world travelers' needs into consideration with upscale amenities and a dash of coastal whimsy.

An enclosed private outdoor deck is a natural extension of the stylish vaulted Living Room. Giant 8 foot tri-fold doors virtually disappear, magically blending the indoor and outdoor spaces seamlessly. The melding of art and architecture is further enhanced by the presence of a uniquely beautiful original painting by renowned artist Gregory Beeman, commissioned specifically for the property. A tranquil fountain, dining table for 4, Weber propane grill, and bar seating at the Kitchen pass-through window adds to the practical aspects of this wonderful outdoor living space. Facing the Santa Ynez mountains and the neighborhood, a Sun porch with antique white iron table offers a fresh and sunny location for any meal. A wall of hinged awning windows can be opened to allow fresh breezes to permeate the space.

A luxurious king-size bed offers divine comfort in the Master Bedroom. The Guest Bedroom is on equal par with the Master, and features a queen-size bed and antique armoire. Both rooms boast flat screen TVs, full premium satellite television, and Blu Ray 3D entertainment. The Bathroom, with high-tech Toto Neorest washlet system and Robern uplift lighted cabinet, is pure decadence as if at the finest European hotel.

The Kitchen is a dream in which to cook, and everything is within reach. The designer's choice in appliances, dishes and serving pieces echoes the contemporary feel of the home with sleek and practical sense.

A visit to Santa Barbara would not be complete without exploring the city on foot. With the home's wonderful location just a half block off the ocean, Stearn's Wharf, The Harbor, State St. and local beaches are literally a stone's throw away. The palm tree lined Ambassador Park of the historic Burton Mound is right next door. It's the perfect spot for a game of Bocce Ball, or a picnic under the majestic shady palms and the fresh ocean breeze. Santa Barbara's place of the moment is the Funk Zone, just a short walk a couple blocks away. This eclectic sub-culture of artisan shops, nook wine tasting rooms, award-winning micro-breweries and trendy restaurants always offers something tasty and unexpected.

The Cottage at West Beach, The Hideaway at West Beach, and The Lookout at West Beach comprise the three units of this triplex. All 3 units are available through Paradise Retreats. Imagine a wonderful family reunion and rent all three!

Note: Parking for 1 car in shared double garage. There is street parking with time restrictions on the weekends. The Kitchen wall of this unit is shared with the Living Room wall of The Hideaway at West Beach.
