Discover The Loquat, a bright and breezy converted garage nestled among citrus and loquat trees in the enchanting Samarkand neighborhood of Santa Barbara. Just a leisurely 10-minute stroll from Cottage Hospital and 5 min walk to some of Santa Barbara's best coffee shops and restaurants, this newly furnished retreat offers a blend of comfort and convenience. Perfect for medical staff, university staff or anyone looking for mid-term corporate housing.

Unwind in the queen bedroom adorned with a day bed, TV, and Sonos sound system, complemented by a full-size closet. The spacious kitchenette boasts a fridge, toaster, electric kettle, coffee pot, french press, dishware, Breville combo oven, microwave, air fryer, induction hotplate, and premium cookware. The open living room features a vaulted redwood ceiling, a SmartTV, dining area, and a convenient office desk.

As you gaze out of your window, be captivated by orange trees, lemon trees and loquat trees, and step onto your brand-new private 10x10 deck adorned with Adirondack chairs and a BBQ. Revel in the tranquility, ample street parking, and the majestic mountain views from the living room, with glimpses of the ocean visible from the bedroom and deck.

Indulge in the luxury of hotel-like amenities, including pristine white linens, premium towels, soaps, and complimentary coffee and tea. Immerse yourself in the local charm with a mere 5-minute walk to Santa Barbara's finest coffee shops and restaurants, and a 10-minute stroll to Trader Joe's and CVS. The ideal retreat, offering serenity and seclusion, yet within walking distance of all your essential needs. Downtown Santa Barbara is a leisurely 30-minute walk away and you're less than a 10 minute drive from incredible Santa Barbara hiking.

Nestled on the same property, our welcoming family includes myself, my husband, our vivacious 7-year-old son, and our charming 12-pound black and white Golden Doodle. We're always here to help if you need us but the Loquat is farther away from our home than our neighbors so you're sure to enjoy all the privacy and peacefulness that you need. Parking is on the street and you walk down the driveway past our house to the bottom of the driveway where the Loquat sits. It's the perfect cozy Santa Barbara home away from home. Utilities are included.

Cancellation Policy: One hundred percent (100.00%) of the total booking charges will be refunded if the cancellation is made more than 30 days prior to the arrival date of the reservation. Fifty percent (50.00%) of the total booking charges will be refunded if the cancellation is made more than 14 days prior to the arrival date of the reservation. For cancellations made within 14 days prior to the arrival date, no refund will be issued.

We absolutely love living in Santa Barbara and know you will enjoy your visit! My husband and I both work from home but we're out and about running around a lot. We run multiple businesses (one of them a hospitality, vacation rental business) and we have a busy 7 year old. We love to travel and absolutely love having visitors but we're equally happy to give you your privacy and the way the property is set up you could go days without seeing us.

Santa Barbara, California

This is a converted detached garage. It's very private, while we do live on the lot, the unit is actually farther than some of our neighbors. We'll go days without seeing whoever is staying there so it's very quiet and peaceful.
