Juniper trees need lots of water, so it should come as no surprise that Juniper Cottage is located in the heart of Santa Barbara's waterfront district. Situated on a quiet, tree-lined street in the charming West Beach district of Santa Barbara, this home is within easy walking distance to the beach, harbor and downtown area. West Beach is the ideal starting point to your exploration of Santa Barbara, and all that the waterfront district has to offer.

Upon entering the home, guests will be struck by the charm and ease of the well-maintained Juniper Cottage. The living room, dining room and kitchen have an open floor plan that makes entertaining a delight, with sliding glass doors opening up to the backyard lending a wonderful sense of indoor and outdoor mixed space. Hardwood floors, high quality furnishings and original art lend this beach cottage a decidedly comfortable and homey feel. All three bedrooms feature high quality mattresses and linens for a rejuvenating and restful night’s sleep.

This home is an ideal choice for small families and small groups. For larger groups and extended families, Mykonos is another lovely property just a block away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We came to Juniper Cottage as “refugees” from the Tea Fire that damaged our home on 11/13- Unable to go home, unwilling to stay in a hotel, we were lucky enough to have a connection with SB Vacation rentals- My husband and 15 year old daughter were thrilled to move into a comfortable, clean and quiet space- In addition to dealing with the fire issues, I also was coping with frail elderly parents- Coming to this cottage was a healing experience for me. Each morning I feel transported to a happier time as I sat with my coffee and stared at the Miramar painting above the dining room table (I lived near the Miramar in the 70’s). We celebrated Thanksgiving here and our older daughter’s 19th birthday- We go back to Conejo Rd tomorrow for rebuilding, but 215 Natoma will be forever a part of our hearts- a place of solace when we so desperately needed one. Thanks forever-

Wonderful home & perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our family stay! Bright, lovely, quiet, private space, great back yard and side yard that were excellent for our little ones. The kitchen is so well equipped with the basics and beyond that we felt like we were right at home. The company also put us in contact with a local business that rented booster seats, toys, a crib & more so we got the pack lighter and all of us were comfortable in our perfect beds.

Great home with perfect location in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home for a week as a family with two small children. The home was safe, clean & had everything you needed.

Some rentals skimp, especially on small touches like providing basic provisions, (salt & pepper etc), or cookware - here everything was bountiful so made the stay much smoother.

The property is managed by InvitedHome, they were very easy to deal with and proactive with check in & out instructions.

The rooms are all large with plenty of storage and all have either 1 or 2 fans. So although no AC, if opening the windows to allow the breeze in isn't enough, just turn the fans on as you wish. We also found keeping the curtains drawn at the back of the house kept it much cooler whilst we were out for the day.

The rooms were all quiet, so no issue watching TV, (good choice of channels, again not a skimpy cheap basic package with low cost orovider), with the little ones asleep.

We used the beach items left in the garage, but the owner also left books, games, dvds etc so lots of things to do.

The location is great - you can walk to everything in 5-10 mins. The only time we drove was to do a big shop at the supermarket, or for the zoo. You have two supermarkets 5 mins walk if you just need the basics.

Our only concern prior was a review mentioning noise. Yes the home is in a residential area, (aren't most?!?!>); but only noise we heard was on Sat/Sun night when sat outside and we could hear some neighbours laughing & chatting. So completely normal! Also the direct next door neighbours we met were lovely.

Overall a great find at a great rate in a great location. Very happy to recommend!

Juniper Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Juniper Cottage! It was so clean and had great amenities. The layout was spacious, and rooms provided enough privacy for all family members.

The best part was it was walking distance to West Beach!

Convenient and Charming

  • 3 of 5

Pictures accurately portray the home - it is well appointed. The home is located close to the Stearns Wharf and The Harbor areas for convenience. The home is also very clean. Also, note that the home is surrounded by multi-family units, which for the most part didn't present too many issues - we did hear some near-by residents arguing in the middle of the night a couple of times.

There are some bathroom/water issues - only a trickle from the sink in the master bath and if you want to take a bath in the hall bathroom, better start running the water about 30 minutes in advance - it takes that long to fill the tub half-way.

The artwork in the home is very "beachy" - wish I could have found some like it while shopping in Santa Barbara. Some of the furnishings could use a little refresh, especially the chair covers in the dining area. One tip: lose the fake flowers - they take away from the overall look of the home. The gardner really spruced up the courtyard with lots of lovely plants - the day before we left - it would have been nice to enjoy those all week.

Overall, if I were to return to Santa Barbara, I would consider renting Juniper Cottage again.
