Why Betsy Kehoe chose Oak Park

This is an ideal location within walking distance of the heart of Santa Barbara and all the State Street Activities. Yet the Apartment is in a quiet and tranquil neighborhood. You are two blocks from the famous McConnell's Ice Cream Shop for those late night urges and the awesome Cajun Kitchen where you can have two eggs sunny side up on a large bowl of Jambalaya!

What makes this apartment unique

Large Apartment with a full kitchen. This apartment is beautifully appointed and furnished. It is quiet and private but centrally located. Walkable to State Street. Bicycles are available for use.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great weeklong stay! The property had everything we required and then some.

It is conveniently located close to a few nice places to go for a bite, coffee or ice cream. Plus we took the longer walk to downtown State Street a few times as well and found it quite pleasant.

Overall, our stay and Betsy’s place well exceeded our expectations and we won’t hesitate to stay there again.

Beautiful, relaxing and convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

I loved Betsy's place. It is spacious, beautiful and super clean!

Great bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room/sitting area.

I also loved the outdoor seating space where I had a cup of coffee and my morning quiet time. The location is perfect. The home is about a 20-minute walk to State Street where all of the shops are located. At the end of State Street is the beach.

I also walked to the Mission which was about a 20-minute walk as well.

Great town to walk in with amazing trees and vegetation along the walks.

Perfect Santa Barbara getaway. I did not want to leave. And, Betsy is super nice!

Her home and property are so pretty.

We loved this charming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Betsy and Pat's cottage apartment had everything we needed for a perfect stay in Santa Barbara. It was well located, very clean, beautifully decorated, and oh so cozy. We stayed in for a few days because of rainy weather and it was the perfect spot for reading or watching a good movie. The kitchen was well-equipped (my husband especially enjoyed using the great toaster!), the bed was very comfortable, and the decor made us feel as though we were vacationing in a charming English cottage. If you are unable to climb stairs to the apartment, this may not be the place for you, but we would certainly recommend Pat and Betsy's cottage to a couple who wants a quiet cozy place in Santa Barbara.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Tudor Cottage -charming and quiet, well appointed, and so convenient to walk to fabulous restaurants and shops and State Street and more. The owners were lovely and answered all questions, while giving us our privacy.

We hope to come back to Santa Barbara and stay here again very soon.

Happy Valentine’s Day Sweet Heart!

  • 5 of 5

A weekend in romantic Santa Barbara was a Valentines Day gift to my wife, and this adorable bungalow turned out to be the perfect choice. Every detail about this place is well thought out, super clean and the bed was comfortable. The kitchen was perfect for breakfast/light meals, even the kitchen knives were sharp (a real rarity in most of the high-end rentals we’ve experienced). A plethora of nice touches from basic cooking ingredients in the kitchen, a couple of welcomed bottles of water in the fridge to audiophile quality surround sound and TVs. The decorations were beautiful and the furnishings were comfortable and very functional for the space.

The bungalow it’s in a quiet neighborhood but close to State Street where you’ll find all the restaurants and shops. The owner Betsy responded all our inquiries in a timely manner, almost feels like you have a friend locally. The only minor thing is the door lock took a bit of figuring out. BTW, this place definitely seems bigger than 560 sq. ft.
