Rustic hiking cabin views of islands & mountains

Beautiful cabin with amazing views of Santa Barbara and the islands.

What guests are saying:

“This is a gem. The location exceeded expectations. The home is a 5-minute walk from Inspiration Point hiking trail and an easy 10 minute drive to Trader Joe's and restaurants on Upper State Street. As other reviewers mentioned, the stairs to the structure are a bit unstable. I did not feel unsafe, but if you have compromised mobility, it might be challenging. The interior cabin seemed smaller than the photos, but was still comfortable. The bed is nice, and the linens and dishes were good. The structure itself is something special. The layout with the exterior spaces and seating areas outside is very intuitive and comfortable. The outdoor areas were larger and more inviting than in the photos. I highly recommend for a getaway and/or to get inspiration if you are thinking about building your own rustic cabin.”

Baby Dux - Hip Hideaway on the Urban Wine Trail

Baby Dux is the smallest apartment in The Dux, a thee apartment boutique hotel on the urban wine trail, in the heart of the entertainment district and 4 blocks up from the beach.

What guests are saying:

“The location is fantastic, and the place was thoughtfully prepared. The bed was indeed comfortable. Unfortunately the guests in the neighboring suite broke the rules and held a party, and were quite noisy. However, Laura promptly apologized and offered a substantial refund, so I'm sure it's not something that normally happens. I appreciate Laura's response and would be happy to stay here again. She also mailed me something I left behind. Five stars.”
