Inside, a recently remodeled open-concept design includes the main living area, where clean lines and cool colors offer the relaxing backdrop you’re looking for on vacation. There’s a modern gas fireplace in the corner, surrounded by a contemporary sitting area that faces the large flat screen TV that’s mounted to the far wall. Windows and a sliding glass door run along one side of the space, leading to another sitting area with a couch and chairs. On this side of the room, there’s also a large dining room table that can seat up to six guests.
Opposite the sliding glass doors, there’s a sleek breakfast bar with additional space for two guests to sit. The galley kitchen on the other side of the breakfast bar has ample counter space and a design that masterfully melds form and function. A tiled backsplash adds texture to the room’s smooth and polished counters and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen has everything you’ll need to cook for the whole family, including a knife set, a 6-burner gas stove, and a large oven.
The Master Bedroom has lightly stained natural wood floors and a chic rug, on which a pillowy king-size bed awaits. There are two large closets, and in between, a flat screen TV is built into the wall. The sumptuous ensuite bathroom has a large walk-in steam shower with aromatherapy features and a twin sink. The second guest bedroom has a queen-size bed, natural wood shutters, and a high sloped window along the ceiling that bathes the room in natural light. There’s also a couch that doubles as a sleeper sofa. The media room/den doubles as a third guest bedroom. In addition to the king-size sleeper sofa, it has a large TV and an electric keyboard.
There’s also a washer and dryer in the garage, which can hold up to two cars. Another two cars can park off street as well.
As inviting as the interior of this home is, the true showstopper is its outdoor entertaining space. A huge patio is surrounded by canopying fruit trees, swaying palms, and flowering bushes. Wooden tables, large umbrellas, and lounge chairs of all kinds scatter the grounds, and along the perimeter, there’s a full outdoor bar and stainless steel gas grill. Spend the afternoon grilling while others play on the bocce ball court, and as night falls, light a fire in the fire pit, or relax under the Santa Barbara stars in the outdoor hot tub.
What’s more, this oasis is just a short walk from the beach, bars, shops, and restaurants that surround Santa Barbara City College, West Beach, and the Mesa neighborhood.
Plan your perfect Santa Barbara stay at West Beach Retreat for a California vacation you’ll never forget.
