About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

The Boathouse—Upper Unit (1 Bed/1 Bath with a sleeper sofa in living room). Please inquire if you would like to book both Upper & Lower levels together (2 Bed/ 2 Bath) or see listing titled "Entire Unit". Property code for entire unit: p4170118

Paradise on the beach! Sitting right on the sand at one of the most beautiful semi-private beaches in Santa Barbara, "The Boathouse" is the perfect retreat! This property is located on the best part of Miramar Beach! Constructed of teak, mahogany and white spruce, accompanied by etched and stained glass windows, this unique cottage has been designed to look and feel like a well-built custom sailing vessel. The property consists of two separate one bedroom/one bathroom units joined by a connected stairway inside and a common entrance from the outside. Each unit can be rented separately (sleeping 2 adults and 2 children) or together for a maximum of 6 to 8 people.

The Upper Unit features a fireplace and larger enclosed deck. Relax and enjoy the amazing view as you listen to the sound of the surging waves. Let the waves lull you to sleep in a comfortable queen size bed. For your entertainment, this cozy cabin is also equipped with a television, cable TV and wifi. However, you will be too busy enjoying the outdoors! Just a few steps to the sand, where plenty of beach accessories await for your enjoyment—chairs, umbrellas, kayaks and boogie boards included.

When you are ready to enjoy a meal, a small kitchen provides all that you need for cooking or step up to the roof deck for your barbequing pleasure! (Deck is shared with lower unit). If eating out at great restaurants is more your style, Montecito's lower Village is only a mile away and downtown Santa Barbara is a short 10 minute drive.

When flying into the area, the property is easily accessible from Santa Barbara Airport (only about 20 minutes away) and Los Angeles (90 miles south).

The Boathouse is truly a relaxing place to get away for it all! Come and escape to Miramar Beach!

Paradise on the beach

  • 5 of 5

2 things to know.

1. Is right next to an active railroad track, so periodically you hear it loudly and shakes the building

2. While not thin, the hallway going to the bottom floor echoes everything so the downstairs is heard well

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to leave feedback for our home. Miramar Beach does have a railroad running behind it, along with most of the coastline, and is visible on the home location map. Despite the railroad being nearby, our guests usually enjoy the sound of the ocean waves and surf as this helps minimize the train noise.

Great Nautical Themed Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

The listing was accurate.

The property was clean and maintained

Good customer service from the manager.

I would recommend this property and would stay here again!

Great to be right on the beach. The unit has lots of character in the design with shiplap and teak being used throughout. The upper deck was awesome! Had a great view and would highly recommend location. It was close enough to SB that we could ride our bikes to the pier and visit the zoo. The only concern I would have is the summer parking. During our stay we had no problem with parking but the lower unit was not rented.

Miramar Beach home was unique!

  • 4 of 5

It truly is a boat house--very much resembling a boat. Not for everyone, but being boat owners it was perfect for us. Small, but well appointed with unique features like the stone shower in the bedroom, square commode, beautiful wood details and much beach and boat decor. The location is perfect--on the beach and close to shopping, dining out (Cava was fabulous), and downtown Santa Barbara. However, on the railroad tracks and frequent trains noisily go by. Also, no dishwasher. I understand the water issue, but not very sanitary as water does not get hot enough to kill germs. Plus one must run the water a long time in the kitchen to get that "hot" water. Loved the deck--especially as the dining room--the view and wave sound spectacular. Great access to the beach and toys for play provided.

I am not sure I would call the listing totally accurate, but worth taking the chance. We loved it.

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at the upper Boathouse. Thank you for letting us know about the hot water situation so we can get this addressed. We appreciate guest feedback very much! I'm sorry that we did not know the dishwasher was something important to you or we certainly would have mentioned it. It is not listed in the amenities for this property on our website. We hope you will return.

This house is absolutely gorgeous. The pictures do not do the location and feel of the house justice. Functional kitchen with an incredibly cozy main room. Perfect fireplace for cooler evenings on the beach. The bedroom actually had a view through the unit to the ocean. Perfect location on Miramar beach. Could not have asked for better stay.
