House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
About Diane Connors
We live in Buellton, CA and have always dreamed of owning a home in Santa Barbara. We have recently retired and purchased and redid this wonderful cottage for us, our daughters, and our 8 grandchildren to use and enjoy. We love sailing off the California coast and feel so lucky when staying at Casa Capricho and being able to walk to the boat at the harbor.
Diane Connors purchased this House in 2015
Why Diane Connors chose West Beach
We initially purchased our vacation cottage because one of our children was attending school in this location, but we quickly fell in love with this beautiful city and all of the cultural and outdoor activities that it offers.
What makes this House unique
We love the Spanish Colonial charm of our cottage, our private garden with orange trees and our quiet neighborhood. We especially love the fact that we can walk everywhere! We take daily walks along East and West Beaches to Shoreline Park or out on Stearns Wharf. We love to walk to our favorite restaurants, Brophy Brothers and Enterprise Fish Company. We often walk to the movie theaters on State Street or to the Farmer's Markets on Tuesdays and Saturdays. We walk to the Santa Barbara Sailing Center, where we can rent a sailboat by the hour or take whale watching cruises. We walk to our Athletic Club to work out, to East Beach to pay beach tennis or volley ball, or to West Beach for swimming or tennis. We often picnic at Shoreline Park. We love the proximity of Santa Barbara City College and the opportunity to take classes there. We also love all the cultural events offered at the Lobero and Granada Theaters and other venues accessible by foot. We enjoy the benefits of the activities of the Maritime Museum, the MOXY museum of science, and the Ronald Reagan Museum with all of their offerings and all within walking distance. It is truly a dream come true to spend time in this city.

Well equipped, great location
Charming house in a great location, walking distance to so much. House was well equipped with kitchen supplies, beach towels, etc. AC was nice to have with the Southern California sun. We had our toddler with us, and the house worked pretty well for a young child.
Thank you for your very nice review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and would love to have you back.
Lovely property! Great location!
Had a very nice time in this charming and well kitted out property. We spent alot of time in the lovely quiet garden. The orange tree was a real bonus. We'll definitely be coming back!
Great stay! Owners were very responsive and the location of the house was fantastic.
Thank you! Would love to have you back.
Clean, comfortable and cozy! Walking distance from so many great spots. Wonderful home away from home for our little family.
Thanks Sarah! Glad that you had a good time and we hope to see you again.
Beautiful Cottage in an Excellent Location
This was a beautiful little cottage for our family of 4. It was clean & comfortable, with everything that you would need...well-appointed, enough storage (surprisingly large closets!), & a washer & dryer, which is super-helpful especially when traveling with kids. The gated yard with shaded areas was a huge bonus, and we actually spent quite a bit of time out there playing catch, blowing bubbles, or having a snack. The absolute best part of the house was the location. We have stayed at several rentals in Santa Barbara & Montecito, and this by FAR was the best location. 1 block to the beach in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood. Walking distance to the wharf & harbor...and best of all, to MANY shops, restaurants, & attractions, including the Funk Zone & The Moxi. We would absolutely book here again!!
Thank you! We are so pleased that you had such a good visit. We would love to have you back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Capricho. We found the home to be very clean and comfortable and well stocked with any tools needed. Diane was always quick to respond and check that all was well. This cute little casa is in a great location, walking distance to State street, the wharf and easy access to freeway. Great weather, great home attentive owner, well landscaped; a real Santa Barbara gem. We look forward to coming. back in the future. Thank you.
Walk to Stearns Wharf, beach, Harbor, boating & kayaking. Walk to fabulous State Street shopping & Dining. Enjoy the trendy new Funk Zone wineries, shops and local beers.
