Holiday Rental House
A Registered City Vacation Rental for a reliable booking. A 1905 original Craftsman home with a fenced PET yard and off-street parking. There are 3 brs, 3 FULL baths and a wonderful wooden original turn of the century feel. The bdrms have queen beds and there's a couch and roll away single on site as well. Located 2 blks from State St for nightlife and restaurants, this vacation home is walk-able from the Train station and 7 blocks to the ocean. More info is available at 'location.rocks'. The Original House is a functional 1905 home directly downtown in Santa Barbara. This is not a boutique or high end rental, and does not try to be. Instead it is highly functional with a modern washer and dryer, a full kitchen and plenty of comfort and usefulness for up to 3 couples to each have a roo...A Registered City Vacation Rental for a reliable booking. A 1905 original Craftsman home with a fenced PET yard and off-street parking. There are 3 brs, 3 FULL baths and a wonderful wooden original turn of the century feel. The bdrms have queen beds and there's a couch and roll away single on site as well. Located 2 blks from State St for nightlife and restaurants, this vacation home is walk-able from the Train station and 7 blocks to the ocean. More info is available at 'location.rocks'. The Original House is a functional 1905 home directly downtown in Santa Barbara. This is not a boutique or high end rental, and does not try to be. Instead it is highly functional with a modern washer and dryer, a full kitchen and plenty of comfort and usefulness for up to 3 couples to each have a room and bath, and to gather in common areas like being at home (instead of a hotel lobby). Because it is still the most often question we are asked; is it really 3 bedrooms? Yes!, 3 bedrooms each with its own full bath in each bedroom; 3 showers, 3 tubs, etc. There is a porch or 'stoop' and a sitting area in the front and off street parking in the rear yard. The solid wood red oak floors are newly refinished and an attic forced air heater brings modern comfort to an original home from another era. Haley feels very much like a period farmhouse, with large airy rooms and a very inviting overall feel. Not a new house, but everything works and it is a comfortable and practical home for your use. Pros and Cons. Please look this over. Parking The House has a driveway and rear parking for 2 cars, however 3 smaller modern cars will fit. The rear parking lot is designed to allow turning around to make it easier and safer to exit to the street. But there is room to get 4 or 5 cars off the street in a pinch. All but the final 2 or so will have to back out, old fashion style. Noise The House is 2 blocks off State Street in Santa Barbara making this a genuine urban rental, complete with city sounds. Especially Friday and Saturday nights there may be street noise which will impact the front bedroom. Car sounds and foot steps on the sidewalk, etc. The other nights are noticeably better, but bear in mind that the most forward bedroom will not be the quietest one. A good alternative 'master' may be the rear bedroom which also has the exit to the back. One room is smaller: The middle bedroom is the smallest. We still have a queen in there for an excellent nights sleep. But there is not much room other than the bed and the bathroom. Good closest space though! Infants and children: This home is remodeled and designed for adults, tourists and traveling business persons. We welcome young children but at the same time do not recommend young children. The hardwood floors are far better than whatever might be in a hotel carpet. We vacuum, Pine Sol mop and rinse between EVERY guest stay. But we do not represent a clinically perfected environment and ask that you use baby blankets and normal hotel tactics to protect crawling young ones. Sometimes new parent bring expectations of hospital perfect surfaces and we are unable to please these guests to that level. Walkability This House is an excellent walking home, and you can walk to movies, restaurants and pubs on State Street, it is an easy walk with rolling luggage from the Amtrak Station 4 blocks away and the kids can be sent to the beach and waterfront area from the front door, an easy 7 block or 10 minute walk with all the beach gear in tow. Send them to the left toward State St, turn right on State and down they go 5 more blocks to Stern's Wharf, with wonderful beaches on both sides and interesting sights and sound out on the wharf too. Make sure they have Ice Cream money, and there is the Sea Center on the Wharf with interactive displays for fun and education. Can you do a family trip to Santa Barbara and forego the car? You can at this House, in downtown Santa Barbara. This district of Santa Barbara is unique and contains some of its original 19th century roots. The Haley House is 2 blocks from the corner of Haley and State, and until the Freeway was brought through Santa Barbara in the 1950's, the main drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco ran along Haley Street ( coming from Milpas, not out front of the Haley House ), then a right turn onto State Street to head North again toward the lemon groves and then on to Gaviota, and on. The original cut stone curbing tells the old story of the nieghborhood and it was easy to go out the door and down the street 5 blocks to the ocean back then. Now it takes 7 blocks so you can walk to State first and then under the Freeway. The train station dates to the time of Haley House as well, and this marked a new era for Santa Barbara. Prior to the trains arrival in 1899 and the station being finished in 1905, the only way in to SB was over the San Marcos Pass by stage couch or by ship, which would dock at Stern's Wharf.

This is my favorite place to stay when I’m in SB. The location is unbeatable; since I don’t drive this is a lifesaver! At one time, we brought our two cats and it worked out perfectly. The house is cozy, practical and literally steps from...More
