BABY DUX - Sweet Hideaway in the Heart of the Fun

Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 3
Santa Barbara, California
A hip hideaway in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara, four blocks up from the beach(five walking blocks). This artist designed studio apartment is small but beautiful. The apartment has exclusive use of the front porch of a lovely craftsman style house on a charmingly landscaped, fully enclosed private property in the center of the entertainment district . The elegantly designed corner couch is unusual. A drawer pulls out to convert it to a fabulously comfortable queen size bed. There is HDTV, WIFI, washer/dryer and gated private off street parking. BBQ on your porch, eat fresh fruit from the fruit trees and use the free bicycles for car free, stress free enjoyment. The owner grew up in the house (and also happens to be the artist). Relax and feel pampered in this thoughtfully re-designed and well loved home.

Additional Rate and Availability Information
There is no tax on stays of 30 nights of longer.

Once you are booked we send a detailed confirmation email that you should look over carefully. It includes driving directions and a legal waiver for using the bicycles. Your reply constitutes our agreement.

There are only two major house rules: That you understand that you are renting one of three apartments in a house and that this is a poor choice for loud partying. Reasonable consideration keeps it a peaceful refuge for everyone. The other rule is also a strong one: absolutely no smoking in the house! Smoking outside is fine as long as it’s considerate of other guests who might be annoyed by the smoke and if nearby windows or doors (where smoke might drift into the interior) are shut. There is a $1000 charge for detectable cigarette smoke.
