About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths (Sleeps 7)

Welcome to our beautiful Villa, the very essence of Andalusian Spain and Santa Barbara. Imagine stepping into the light filled great room, with its polished Spanish tile floors and white washed stone surfaces. Banks of windows in each room overlook the private courtyard, lawn and rose garden. With the windows open (or standing out on one of your 4 decks) you can hear the wonderful bubbling of the grand fountain, day and night.

This luxurious villa has over 2,000 sq ft of living space with 3 bedrooms, 2 ½ baths with a Queen sized bed in both the Master Suite and the second bedroom, with over-sized bunk bed in the third bedroom. The master bath has a large walk-in shower and an extra deep Jacuzzi tub. There are four levels in the Villa. All bedrooms are on a second level of the house while kitchen and living room are on a third one. All floors are accessible by elevator besides roof deck.

There are three fireplaces, flat screen television, surround sound and internet access. All linens, towels, furniture and artwork are of the highest quality. Villa Malaga is located well off-street and is surrounded by lush landscaping and greenery that obscure other buildings, providing a special sense of privacy and security.

The roof deck, with sweeping views of the American Riviera and glistening Pacific Ocean, provides that extra outdoor living space for fresh-air dining or just relaxing and enjoying the sun and sea breezes. There is an outdoor fireplace on this deck inlaid with a hand painted Spanish mural, a separate fountain and 360 degree views of all that Santa Barbara has to offer.

Villa is located in Cinque Terre, a stunning building just two blocks from the beach and four blocks from Stearn’s Wharf in the heart of the Water Front District. It is completely gated and has a private garage with a dumb waiter that will whisk your provisions to both the sleeping and living levels.

The gourmet kitchen is fully stocked, featuring custom cabinets, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, 6-burner commercial grade Viking range and an over-sized GE convection/microwave.

Charming villa close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The Villa is quite charming with plenty of space and very comfortable beds for the seven of us. The floorplan is fun especially The rooftop deck. We spent a lot of time in this part of the house as the temperature was perfect and the views were very pretty. In addition the location was very close to all the places we wanted to be — within a mile and a half of the restaurants in the state street area and only a few blocks from the beach. We used the bikes several times to ride along the beautiful beach bike path. We were here to celebrate my daughter’s graduation from UCSB. It was about a 20 minute drive from the campus but it was great to be in this part of Santa Barbara. We went to the funk zone and enjoyed the breweries there and ate out at a nice tapas restaurant called milk and honey which I would recommend as well. The master bedroom was Especially nice including the Jacuzzi bathtub and large shower. It was easy to have a wonderful stay at this beautiful villa.

Fantastic Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Santa Barbara is a wonderful place, and Villa Malaga is the ideal condo for enjoying all that the city has to offer. It is large, comfortable and well-appointed, exactly as promised. The location couldn't be better for visiting the wharf, kayaking, and numerous dining options. We walked to nearby shopping areas, then had a lovely evening on the deck, enjoying the fire. Can't wait to visit again, thank you!

Beautiful and spacious condo with PERFECT location!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 had a fabulous time and it was perfect for a long Santa Barbara weekend! We were celebrating a 50th birthday and it was a celebratory place that was beautiful, comfortable and perfect location! The condo is close to the train station (10 minute walk) and close to State Street, Funk Zone and the beautiful waterfront. With the rooftop patio, the space covers three floors so it provides lots of space. There are two markets within a few blocks and we enjoyed Toma restaurant, also a close walk. Bedrooms and bathrooms are well appointed and the dining room was perfect for all of us around the table. Quiet neighbors and the building felt secure with security gates. Local highlights were: Enterprise Fish, Helena Avenue Bakery and Sandbar Restaurant.

Beautiful property in great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to Villa Malaga. The property is well-situated, just a few short blocks from the waterfront and downtown. Easy to walk to shopping, beach, restaurants. Check in and check out was a breeze, easy to follow directions for access to unit. Well appointed, furnished comfortably, with plenty of room for our family of three. The only aspect of our stay that was less than ideal was the rooftop patio. The space is nice with lovely views, but unfortunately the lounge furniture was in such poor condition (wet and completely soiled with mildew and dirt) that we weren't able to use the space. Other than that, a perfect stay!
