We just loved staying at Christy and Tim's home. We were there almost 4 months. We walked to the beach every day. Lots of outdoor activities around. Their yard is beautiful and full of fruit trees. We had a lovely stay and would highly recommend the property to others looking for a cozy, convenient retreat. The house itself was well stocked & Christy/Tim were very accommodating and respectful to any requests we had. This is a 5 star home in a 5 star location.

We spent a wonderfully peaceful month there including a pleasant Christmas week with our grown kids. Location ideal. Parking in driveway for 2-3 cars. We used public bus for a month with no issues. 5 min walk to bus stop. 2km walk (or bus ride) to the closest grocery store, 25 min bus ride to downtown. 8 min walk to a beautiful beach which also has the Boathouse, a nice restaurant. 6 min or less walk to 3 different park areas, 2 have stunning headland views of the ocean and the Channel Islands. There are bikes in the garage if you desire. Totally remodeled in the last few years. Very well-equipped kitchen with all gear and modern appliances we needed to prepare several gourmet meals. Indeed the entire house was thoughtfully stocked. Nice large screen tv and excellent, stable wifi/internet. All bedrooms have very comfortable beds. One bedroom is separate with en suite bathroom. One of the other bedrooms has a separate door to the main bathrooom. Natural lighting in the family room is good with a sunlight as well as glass-panelled front door and wide french doors to the backyard, although the place gets a little chilly in the morning. The backyard is immaculately landscaped and delightful to sit out in and read. Our family photo taken in the backyard looks like it was taken at a wedding venue. The neighborhood is old and well-established with markedly friendly neighbors. Our overall impression was quite positive. We had a wonderful time.

What a great family home!So many extras added for your a very relaxing and welcoming holiday. Immediately entering Arroyo Burro Beach Retreat you know you will be soon in a holiday mood...Christy and Tim have thought of what you might need for a growing family and added extra touches for many activities . Surprisingly, the Sun shines quickly warms the air I can hardly believe it is Winter.Nearby is The Boathouse to drop in for a coffee and walk along the beach....I will always fondly remember my holiday in Santa Barbara and say thank you to Christy and Tim.

Everything about this lovely home says, "Beach." The location -- within walking distance of the adorable Arroyo Burro Beach -- is ideal. The surroundings are beautiful -- inside and out! A special plus is the proximity to the Douglas Preserve, ideal for morning walks overlooking the ocean. There are even tennis courts nearby, and of course the city of Santa Barbara with all it has to offer is just a short car ride away. The place comes very well equipped and has everything needed for a comfortable stay. We were here for a month and could easily have stayed longer. Maybe next year!

This house is wonderful! The owners made us feel welcome and were responsive to all of our questions and requests. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything needed. We hosted a BBQ for 20 people on then patio, and had everything we needed for cooking and serving. The bedrooms are comfortable, and everything is clean and updated. The proximity to Hendry's Beach made our stay delightful, and our granddaughters spend many happy hours taking advantage of the boogie boards and bikes that are available at the house. We had a great time in Santa Barbara, and will undoubtedly return to this property again and again.

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful house. There was everything there that you might need. Really enjoyed the big garden. It is set in a quiet neighborhood. The beach is really close with a great beach restaurant. The owners of the house were really nice and helpful.

We loved everything about this home! The location is fabulous, with walking distance to the most popular, “locals beach” ( Hendry’s) and Beach House Restaurant, also walking distance to Douglas Preserve, both options are THE sunset destinations for Locals. The house has 4 great bedrooms and 2 perfect bathrooms, great kitchen, everything beautifully remodeled. My favorite part was the huge back garden with orange and lemon trees and flowers blooming year round! The nicest owners were very helpful. We spent 4 months, and if I could, I would have stayed until I was 102 years old like the owner’s father did! Great grocery shopping and restaurants up the road and neighboring the exclusive Hope Ranch, it is the best location. Very safe area and many good vibes, the California dream beach house!

Our family stayed at the Arroyo Burro Beach Retreat for 5 weeks and it wasn't enough time for us. After the first week, I already knew that it wasn't going to be enough time for us. The property is really special -- the location is within easy walking distance to Arroyo Burro Beach. I loved taking the kids to the beach to play and my husband loved going on early morning surf sessions. And it is so easy to get to everything -- downtown was a 10-minute drive, UCSB was an easy 15 minutes away and when we wanted to explore other beaches, you could be at Leadbetter Beach in 10 or East Beach in 15. There is a great hiking trail that starts near the beach that goes through the Douglas Family Preserve. It really is so ideal for exploring. The house has such a sweet family history that you can see how it was lovingly remodeled with so much care. It's very clean, updated and very spacious. The living room gets wonderful light from the skylight. It has everything you need for a relaxing stay. What I will miss the most is the backyard. It is so peaceful and brought so much joy to our family. The patio area felt like an extension of the living space of the house because it's perfect for barbecuing and entertaining with lots of space. I took many naps on the lounger under the shade of the beautiful tree. My children loved eating delicious plums straight from the tree and running around in the yard. Sigh...I am already missing being there! The owner, Christy, is very easy to communicate with and really kind to my children. She let them garden with her (...more like follow her around while she gardened) and patiently listened to them rattle on endlessly. We had a really amazing experience from beginning to end and can't recommend Arroyo Burro Beach Retreat enough. I am already lobbying to come back next year!
