“Fun in Santa Barbars”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2013

This was my first visit to Santa Barbara. The mama DUX apartment was exactly as advertised. It has a very convenient location just a block from State Street. Turn left on State and it's just a short walk to the beach, harbor and Stearns Wharf. Turn right on State and walk to all of the shops and restaurants. In addition, there was a very nice cafe with great coffee just a block away on anacapa Street. The apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped and very comfortably furnished. In addition, parking is provided, which is a great convenience. Despite the location and the fact that there are two other units in the house, it was very quiet. The owner and manager both provided great service and made themselves available should any need arise. Happily, I didn't require their services during my visit. I would recommend the apartment without reservation.

“Another great week in Santa Barbara”

Reviewed 15 May 2013

This was our second stay in "Mama Dux", and I teared up when it was time to leave. Our son is a grad student at Ucsb, and we will probably come out every two years until he's done. This unit is perfect for people who like to have a kitchen while staying put in one place for a week. The garden area is beautiful and tranquil, and this unit has a table-and-chairs set next to a gurgling fountain and beautiful plants. The unit is spacious, the bed is comfortable, and the decor is beautiful (there is an additional bed/couch in the living room area). Oh, and the new shower is gorgeous! Laura, who supervises the property, is available at all times to answer questions and to rectify any problems. The house is located a block from State Street. Make a left on State and you can walk to the waterfront; make a right and you can wander by the stores and restaurants. Walk towards the water on State (and under 101) and hang a left onto Yononali Street and you will find yourself on the Urban Wine Trail. Make sure to visit Kunin Wines' sister establishment, Anacapa Vintners, which just opened this year. I'm so sad that our trip is over; I'll have to live on memories till our next visit.

“Great apartment, brilliant location”

Reviewed 20 Jan 2013

Stayed here over Christmas and had a fantastic time. The apartment is a great size and very well kitted out. Very close to the beach, bars, restaurants and wineries. Highly recommend Municipal Winemakers.

“Very Clean, Very Quiet, Very Private”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2013

We felt very welcome at this beautiful older home that was full of character and charm. The suite had all the modern conveniences and was in mint condition. The ambiance made for a very relaxing stay and the location was perfect. It was located within a two minute walk to the downtown core and a 5 to 10 minute walk to the beach. We can't wait to go again.

“Amazing stay”

Appartment was full of character and everything you could possibly need. Really enjoyed our evening sitting out on the porch. Appartment is in an excellent location near the shops, restaurants and the beach

“Proposal Weekend”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2012

Let me start by saying that this was the most important night of my life thus far!!! Inga and Laura you two are the best host anyone can ask for!!! These two ladies made the "yes" possible. Not only was the place gorgeous and perfect, but the cleanliness was top notch and the amenities were not skimped on in any aspect... The rental was completely turn key and I will never for the rest of my life stay in a hotel again... I loved the area (walking distance to everything) I loved the place, and I loved the kindness shown to me and the above all expectation surprise of beautiful serenity... Hands down my greatest experience in a vacation rental and I have traveled a lot!!! Thank you two lovely ladies and thank you Mama Dux May love continue to reign extreme what a weekend...

“Sweet Stay in the Heart of SB”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2012

We stayed in Mama Dux for the week of august 2-9, 2012 and we couldn't have asked for a better apartment, location, or host. Laura made sure everything was in order when we arrived late, and assisted us in using the free bicycles (even repairing a few items on them during our stay - repaired same day!). The location can't be beat - walking distance to State street shops and restaurants, and easily walkable to the ocean, pier and fish market. We ate several "wine, cheese and meat" lunches on the beautiful patio. The washer and dryer were excellent and allowed us to pack light (in just a carryon) and the full kitchen was great for making a nice breakfast and the occassional dinner from fresh fish purchased at the fish market down by the pier. Highly recommend this place!

“Great relaxing stay. It felt like home.”

We had a wonderful stay. The location is excellent, two blocks from State Street, with easy access to shopping, wornderful restaurants and the beach.

“Nice, convenient, artistically appointed place”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2012

If you're looking for a hotel room, this isn't the place for you. This is a very beautiful eclectic apartment, a block away from all of the action/restaurants/bars on State St. Quiet, parking, free beach cruiser bikes, fridge and full kitchen. Large shower in this unit, not a bath, but that was fine with me. Inga and Laura are great hosts, very responsive, and will have many suggestions and answers to any questions.

“Exceeded our expectations”

Reviewed 28 May 2012

We stayed in the Mama Dux apartment for a week in May of 2012. We found it very comfortable, spacious and stocked with nice amenities (bikes, outdoor sitting area with comfy chairs, umbrella and burbling fountain). We were a bit concerned prior to our arrival because a Google Map search showed it to be located on a street corner, and adjacent to several auto-body repair shops. However, we used ear plugs when sleeping and minimal external noise was not really an issue. In fact, every night we slept great in the comfy king size bed. The location was actually a big plus because we were very close to the beach, and also lots of restaurants, cafes and art galleries. The only thing to note is that this is an older home, and the upstairs guests can be a bit annoying if they are loud talkers or heavy-footed. Otherwise, we were really pleased with our stay. Laura, the manager, popped in a couple times during our trip to check on the property, and was easily reachable in case we needed anything. Inga and Laura also sorted out a work-table that could be used for computing work while we were staying at the apartment. It was great that they were so proactive in responding to our needs.
