Guests at this 1,200-square-foot cottage are a short walk from Shoreline Park (one of Santa Barbara's prettiest beachfront parks). Open the Dutch door for fresh air and water views.
This rental blurs the line between indoors and out. Lanai doors and an operable central skylight in the living room let visitors take full advantage of ocean views and Pacific breezes.
The great room comprises living, dining, and cooking areas. Chilly evenings call for a fire in the gas stove and a book from the built-in bookcase. The kitchen is raised for prime ocean viewing, giving cooks the best seat in the house.
