We came to Santa Barbara for Old Spanish Days. Cathy our host was great at communicating the check in process with a thorough email. Upon arriving she showed me everything we needed to know about the house and gave me the tour. The house was a perfect fit for our family. Beautiful house, and a very safe on a private road. I would highly recommend Cathy’s house!

A beautiful home nestled into the countryside, yet close to downtown Santa Barbara. The house is impeccably decorated, inviting, and comfortable. Cathy and Jim are fantastic hosts and available for any need. Pictures do not do the patio and property justice, the peacefulness of having coffee in the morning while listening to all the birds is not to be missed. We will definitely stay here again!

The house was lovely, and pretty perfect in every way. The kitchen was well equipped and the bedding was first rate. We enjoyed knowing about Cathy's musical career. There are three main seating areas inside and we used them all. We proudly hosted a few people that we were in town to see,, and they were very impressed — and comfortable.

Truly a “nature’s retreat.“ Beautiful place. Lovely location, even if at the end of a narrow road. Good communications with the owner, clean as a whistle, comfortable beds, lovely garden, very pleasant stay.

We are a film crew staying in SB, so had three guys staying here - we were looking for a place to shoot an interview and double as accommodations, and Cathy was willing to work with us! She communicated all of her concerns and requests clearly, and nothing was unreasonable - total sport for being willing to take a chance on us. I told her immediately of our intention to shoot and she and Jim decided to get on board and give us a shot. Cathy dropped by the set and was lovely. The guys enjoyed their stay and the house is comfortable and beautiful.

We reserved for UCSB graduation weekend because we had grandparents and an aunt & uncle coming to graduation. It was perfect! Plenty of room inside and out. Kitchen was well stocked with what we needed. Location was great…quiet and close to campus, plus close to a More Mesa trailhead for short hikes to the ocean. Cathy met us when we arrived and gave us a quick tour. We loved it! My 91 year old father particularly enjoyed the King Sister and King Cousin pictures!

The home is large and nicely appointed and decorated in a rustic Tuscan style. Comfortable beds and amenities. Sits behind the bluffs. Very quiet. Lovely gardens and outdoor sitting spaces. We were not fully aware the property is occupied full time by the owners who live upstairs. Parking is very limited. Sadly, there quite a few spiders, indoors and out, while we were there. And you do get the noise of planes landing at Santa Barbara Airport. A distance from restaurants and resources.

We had everything we needed at the property. It was a great base of operations for a 50th and 75th birthday celebration. Cathy welcomed us, showed us around, and was flexible on small details that made a big difference. There is a great supermarket nearby for essentials, and you can drive anywhere pretty quickly. We loved just sitting on the large patio and deck and enjoing the environment and each other. Thanks!
