About Harbor View Inn
Just a few steps from the popular West Beach and Stearns Wharf, the Harbor View Inn is one of Santa Barbara's finest boutique hotels. This attractive property welcomes you from the moment you step inside, with friendly and attentive staff and a relaxed Californian vibe. The welcome continues out into the sun-dappled courtyard and gardens, where tropical blooms and swaying palms offer shade from the sun. The swimming pool and Jacuzzi are perfect spots to linger for a few hours, or to cool off at the end of the day.
With the beach and wharf just a few metres away, you’ll be in prime position for exploring Santa Barbara’s famous oceanfront attractions. Take your pick from the harbour, the Maritime Museum or the downtown area and its boutique stores, cafés, restaurants and galleries.
Slightly further afield, a number of excellent 18-hole courses will keep golfers happy. And the Santa Ynez Valley, with more than 60 world-class vineyards, is an excellent place to taste Californian wines.
