We had a terrific time. The house is lovely and the neighborhood is so peaceful. We took walks, biked, and played games. Sitting outside around the fire pit was so relaxing. One thing, the pictures showed several heat lamps. These were no where to be found. There was one fire pit. Other than that, the house was perfect.

The property has stunning views and amazing outdoor space. It's close to all Santa Barbara has to offer but located in a quiet area with views of the ocean, the mountains and a nightly view of a sky full of stars. The house is comfortable and has plenty of space for everyone.

We very much enjoyed our stay at this lovely home and would go back again. It was a perfect size for our needs which included hosting a rehearsal dinner for twelve people. (everything downsized d/t Covid-19). The view was beautiful and the surrounding gardens in bloom were amazing. It was like having our own corner of the world with an ocean view, blue sky, fresh air and the dance of the hummingbirds. So delightful! Our daughter looked stunning in her wedding gown surrounded by the gardens. The photographer was happy. There were a few things that disappointed which is why the rating is slightly less than perfect. The kitchen was dated and not clean to our standards (high) and several of the teflon frying pans were greasy and etched deeply. However, after speaking directly with the owner we learned that the kitchen was scheduled for a complete overhaul after we finished our stay there. I will be excited to see updated pictures. Linens for the dining room table were old and stained. We had to clean the outside heaters and were disappointed that they would not work. We rented heaters for our event. There were other minor issues with plumbing, lighting, etc. We enjoyed the interior decorating and the happy colors done with good taste. The double doors in the study/library was a perfect place to take pictures of the wedding gown. The location was perfect for our needs in a beautiful area with quick access to all Santa Barbara has to offer. This property played a huge role in helping us make beautiful memories for our family.

This is an ideal vacation rental! Beds are comfortable, kitchen is well stocked, room for a big family, the property is beautiful and well kept, and it is clean. And then there’s the view! When we arrived, there was music playing and it smelled so good! The property manager went above and beyond to make sure our stay was pleasant. When they say “full concierge service” they mean it! Highly recommend!

This property is absolutely gorgeous, beautiful patio with round table and chairs, inside a maze of flowers and color. Fireplace that is easy to start and perfect for a frosty morning. It has a large master BR, 2 guest rooms and a small sitting room. Kitchen is nicely appointed with a terrific gas stove. TV in master bedroom and in one of the guest rooms, none in living room. We stayed for 5 weeks and could have stayed longer, met the owner who is charming and gracious.

This is a big, beautiful home in a restful, quiet neighborhood! We were in Santa Barbara for our son's wedding, and this was the perfect home-away-from-home for our out-of-town family to spend time together! Plenty of room for 8 adults and 2 teenagers (four bedrooms with beds for the four couples, plus blow-up air mattresses for the kids.) The house is very, very clean and is open and very comfortable, with a beautiful beachy decor. But best of all is the BIG BACKYARD! We spent every evening sitting on the back patio (lots of really comfortable lounge furniture), relaxing and visiting with the family! Looking through a stand of palm trees, you even have a glimpse of the ocean! (One night we saw falling stars!) The large living room, with two couches, is also a very comfy place for kids and grown-ups to spread out, relax, and visit. The kitchen was very well-equipped - the grandkids even made us breakfast one morning! - and there is a large dining room table. There are two large bathrooms, and this worked out just fine, even with 10 people in the house. Plenty of hot water for everyone's showers getting ready for the wedding, and lots of big, fluffy towels! The location was lovely, in a very pretty neighborhood. It's about a fifteen minute drive into downtown Santa Barbara, and there is a wonderful beach just a short drive down the hill. P.J., the manager, is very kind and helpful, and called to see if we needed anything. We couldn't have found a better place for our family to spend time together!

Rented this house for the out of town family members for my son's wedding. Dealing with the manager on the internet was easy, and I got rapid replies to any questions that I had. Also, once we arrived, he answered text messages almost immediately. It was like he was there with us. Loved the location, loved the view. Nice comfortable house. Spent most of our time on the beautiful patio with all of the great outdoor furniture. Would definately book again.
