“Great location”

We found the location to be good for the beach area and also for town for either shopping or eating. There are plenty of places to eat ranging from fast food to fine dining.
You can either walk to most places or there is a trolley bus that runs up and down State Street which is a block away from the property.
The property is well kitted out with all you need with parking in the back yard for the car. The decor is somewhat dark but there are plenty of lights to brighten the room up.
There is some noise from the room next door (Baby Dux) but this is usually when the water is being run at night when it is quiet.
Overall this is a fine place and would use it again if we are in the area.

It was a pleasure to meet you both and to see how much you enjoyed the patio and bar-b que. It really is such a convenient spot for getting around the best of Santa Barbara. I hope you enjoy your next adventure and come back to see us again in the future. Happy travels! Warmly, Laura

Spent a week in Santa Barbara at Mama Dux as part of a 3 week holiday in California. Inga made the booking process very easy and was very helpful with local tips. Laura, the concierge, had opened up the unit for us, with fresh milk and coffee waiting for us. The unit is in a great location just 2 minutes walk from the bottom of State Street and only a 10 minute walk to Stearns Wharf. Bicycle are provided for free & a cycle along Cabrillo Blvd is recommended. The unit is very comfortable, with a large bed and 2 televisions. The unit is very well equipped & has everything that you will need during your stay. Highly recommended.
