The Simpson House is beautiful B&B hidden behind large bushes and trees wallowing it to be a quiet sanctuary. The service is attentive and the breakfast quite nice. We will return when visiting Santa Barbara

I did call and they got back to me immediately. They don't have a room with 2 beds for me and my sister sadly. Such a beautiful place though – I would love to visit with my husband!
