Want to come experience the beauty of Chapala Gardens? Consider staying in our Vacation Rentals!

Our farm is open to visitors whenever we are there working and available to our guests in our vacation rentals.  We have an Open House almost every month and special events and workshops throughout the year. Please check our Events page as well as our Face Book pages. If you’d like to drop by for seedlings or produce,  drop us an email at or text Sandy at (916) 705-7847, first. Phone calls are a little too difficult to respond to; thanks for emailing or texting.

Stay At Chapala Gardens
Imagine staying in a historic landmark with a rooftop garden over your head! Chapala Gardens is not only a farm but also a part of Santa Barbara history. Our 100 year old house was originally a dress shop for the 390 room Potter Hotel and is a charming, vibrant and convenient place to stay in Santa Barbara.

Completely renovated in 2010 and newly furnished, these unique sun-lit units are part of a historic triplex in the desirable West Beach area. Your doorway is just 1-1/2-blocks from the sands and volleyball courts on West Beach near Stearn’s Wharf, and easy walking distance to downtown State St. shops and restaurants. Also very close is the Amtrak station; no need for a car at all if arriving by train! We have 3 lovely units available, our third unit is now ready and is our most spacious and luxurious to date.

We can also arrange a “farm & stay” experience for you, if you’d like to have a more in-depth “hands on” experience with the farm.

Follow the links for more information on all three vacation units.
