Comfortable house with large kitchen, dining room and living area. Beautiful outdoor space with spacious patio and lawn area. Enjoyed the house with family including my 11/2 year old granddaughter! Close to downtown, wharf & shoreline park, Montecito and Carpinteria. Biking path nearby and great neighborhood to walk.

We had a wonderful welcome upon our arrival and some nice treats and fresh eggs from the chickens on the property 😀. It was peaceful, clean, beds were comfortable. Owners are easy to communicate with and very nice. We would definitely stay again in the future!

This property is in a great location with a beautiful yard and scenery. The home is meticulously maintained and is very nice. Cathy and Jim live upstairs and did a great job greeting us upon arrival and getting us oriented. I hope to return on a future visit to SB.

We had a great stay at this house. It offered all of the amenities we needed for our family for the weekend and the backyard was amazing for the kids to play in. Cathy was very communicative and was able to answer all of my questions. Cathy and Jim live on-site which I was a little worried about at first but we didn’t see them all weekend. We would definitely stay here again!

This was a lovely house and gardens, however I wouldn’t recommend it unless you enjoy living with your landlord. The landlord lives upstairs and it’s not separate quarters. There’s a wide staircase in the foyer that they rope off. Because this is their résidence, we found ourselves having to answer the front door for them, handle issues with their workers and accept delivery of a package to be placed inside. This isn’t a big deal; just rather weird. Also, they maintain a room downstairs that they use as an office that is kept locked. But we heard them come down and go into the office and shut the door and it’s like ghosts sneaking around. Because of their very near proximity, we had a tendency to speak softly and whisper. This is not what we expected. We felt so uncomfortable with the situation that we mistakenly left a day early. This was our first experience using a vacation home rental and I’m going back to hotels!!!!

My son graduated from UCSB and we loved having the grandparents and a few friends to celebrate in Cathy and Jim’s beautiful back yard! The house is truly peaceful and such a wonderful spot to relax inside and out!!! The hosts are very accessible and gracious I hope to be back!

This house is just beautiful! The beds are fantastic. We loved the gardens and the back deck—song birds, woodpeckers, hawks & hummingbirds. It was so very peaceful. We also really enjoyed meeting our host. Elegant and homey.

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. We cooked in the well stocked kitchen, lounged in their comfortable living room, and slept soundly in their comfortable beds. I loved walking out on their fabulous patio and on their paths to see the landscaping features and plants. Our only regret is that we couldn’t stay longer! Cathy is very attentive and gracious.

We had a lovely time staying at their family home. Cathy was super friendly and chatted about all the places we could visit during our stay. There were comfortable beds and enough seating for our family of 6. The kitchen was great!
