Gin’s Cottage - Graceful Charm on the Upper West Side

NOTE: 30-NIGHT MINIMUM STAY EFFECTIVE 1/1/17

With historic charm and graceful appeal, Gin's Cottage can be found on a relaxed neighborhood corner in the Upper West Side of Santa Barbara. Originally built in 1921, this home has been through several extensive remodels over the years, yet the classic lines of this downtown treasure still remain. A fresh design perspective from new owners has resulted in a wonderful vacation cottage with style.

Through the bougainvillea covered gate, the zen-like garden is lush with tropical plants, tranquil fountain, and seating available to watch neighborhood activity go by. Once inside, traditional architecture melds with upscale appointments to create classic appeal and relaxed ambiance.

The Kitchen has been transformed from a once quaint space where Gin Simpson may have baked cookies with her mother back in the day, to a now modern and efficient gourmet masterpiece. Professional appliances, including European AGA cast-iron range, can be found, along with other fine amenities within the classic cottage framework. Soapstone counters, iridescent glass tiles, and a rich mahogany Boos butcher block island form the central focus of the Kitchen hub. An herb garden offers tasty additions to any meal, or head downtown to the Farmers Markets on Tuesday afternoons or Saturday mornings.

The adjacent Dining Room, with sleek dining table and curved artisan bench, remains close to meal preparations. A door opens to a landing with steps that lead down to the fully enclosed backyard below.

The Living Room has a fireplace and comfortable seating, with front yard views and rich wood floors under foot. The adjacent Den, with queen sofa sleeper, offers a great space for all to gather for movie nights, or sleepy kids to fall asleep near mom and dad in the Master Bedroom.

Through the Den, the Library/Office is a great spot to get down to work, or serious bookworms will be intrigued by the extensive book collection available on the surrounding wall-to-wall bookshelves.

From the Library/Office, ascend just a few steps into the Master Bedroom Suite with comfy king-size bed and windows overlooking the secluded yard below. The Master Bathroom is bright and fresh with clean white subway tile, large glass shower and oval soaking tub.The Library/Office and Master Suite can be closed off from the Den for more privacy.

In the enclosed backyard, fragrant ground cover and sandstone pavers create a welcoming patio in which to linger around the fire pit, or take a relaxing soak in the brand new spa. Comfortable patio furniture and lush tropical landscaping add to the outside appeal. After a day at the beach just a short drive away, rinse off the sand and salt in the convenient outdoor shower.

Gin's Cottage offers year round access to whatever activities suit each guest's fancy.  Summer ushers in any number of spectacular events like the Old Spanish Days Fiesta, the colorful Summer Solstice Parade, concerts and movies in the park, and more. Fall's bounty invites guests to walk the Urban Wine Trail in the "Funk Zone", or take a leisurely drive to Santa Ynez to tour local wineries. Spring break is a great time for families seeking off from busy school schedules to bask in the warm sunshine. And of course, wintering snowbirds can settle in for a longer stay to escape the inevitable Eastern cold snap.  No matter what the season, a visit to Gin's Cottage is the ideal place to call home in the middle of paradise.
