La Sirena - Downtown Convenience and Designer Style

The Mermaid's song has long been a mystical sound beckoning humans to the sea. Equally irresistible is “La Sirena” (The Mermaid) in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara.  Newly restored with careful attention to detail, this 1920's classic California bungalow will surely draw guests to this beautiful coastal town. Framed magazine covers from the 1920's highlighting watery images of mermaids help carry the theme, along with other art and sculptural pieces. The love of the sea and desire for a tranquil environment are the focal point of the décor.

Do not be fooled by its compact size! There is a smart place for the many amenities provided, and the ideal urban location speaks for itself. Sit on the covered front porch or dining patio to enjoy the downtown neighborhood scene. Ready for a walk after a delicious meal?  Pop out the white picket gate and explore all there is to see on foot. Shopping and plenty of nightlife are nearby, and easily within walking distance. 

Relax in the Living Room with flat screen TV, or simply curl up in the corner of the sectional sofa to read or nap. A library of books has been provided if guests wish to escape into a good literary adventure.

For a great night's sleep, both Bedrooms are outfitted with Sleep Number beds, black-out blinds,  and ceiling fans. The Master Bedroom has a queen-size bed, MP3 speaker, and features a door to the enclosed deck with barbecue and bistro table. This is a cozy place to enjoy a morning cup of green tea or quiet conversation. The washer and dryer are a practical addition, and are housed in an outside closet on the deck. Beach chairs, beach umbrellas and other recreational items can be found in the deck box next to the Laundry closet.

The second Bedroom features a queen-size bed and corner windows, making this room bright and sunny. A Jack and Jill style Bathroom is nestled between the two Bedrooms. Splashes of color dot each room with whimsical flair.

The owners of La Sirena love to cook, and have outfitted the Kitchen with essentials to prepare wonderful meals at home. A breakfast bar that seats two is provided for informal dining.

With its convenient location, shopping for unique and delicious ingredients is made simple with a plethora of local purveyors nearby. The new Santa Barbara Public Market is creating quite a buzz, where locals and visitors alike gather to enjoy hand crafted, regionally sourced and sustainably delicious food and wine. There is even a full service gourmet grocery here, or venture out to weekly local Farmer’s Markets in varying locations around town.

There is no better location to be close to local festivities. Annual events like “The Santa Barbara International Film Festival”, “Summer Solstice” and “Old Spanish Days Fiesta” draw visitors to Santa Barbara each year. Concerts at the Santa Barbara County Bowl are a great way to spend a warm summer night and just a 10 minute stroll.  La Sirena is the ideal home base from which to enjoy the festivities and feel like a local!

Whether for a months stay, or a longer escape from the winter chill back east, this sweet and charming cottage is sure to become a beloved “home away from home” in the heart of the city.  Surrender to the welcoming song of La Sirena.
