This is our third year staying here - each year we stay longer! We were here for over two months this time and have booked for next year. The cottage is well appointed (looks just like the photos) and the location is ideal. It's about a block to State St for shopping, restaurants, movies and museums. The beach is at the end of State. There are bicycles available to use and Santa Barbara is very bike friendly. Plus, Caron and Doug are great hosts, offering everything you need and more! Thanks to you both - see you next year!!!

This gorgeous house is in a great location. It's home away from home - but (almost) better! The decor is top of the line, the light is divine, and there is loving attention to detail and comfort. Caron and Doug are amazing hosts. Bootsie is a very welcome visitor; she is a dog with character and charm. Just like this house. Highly recommended. Best vacation rental in downtown SB.

My wife and I just got back from spending 2 nights at the house and we are already thinking about when we can go back. The house is located just blocks from State street where all the fun and activities are located. We even walked up to the Mission, but I'd probably recommend using the complimentary bikes that are available to use. Yes, I said complementary bikes. A very NICE perk. My wife and I grabbed them Saturday morning and rode them down to the beach and pier. It's a must do. Doug and Caron are great hosts. The house is equipped with everything one would need for a comfortable stay. Don't hesitate to book this house if you want to experience downtown living and everything it has to offer.

Caron and Doug, along with kitchen-crumb-cleaner-upper Bootsy, made our month long stay in this wonderful, spacious, comfortable apartment theavenly. A very quick walk into town, restaurants, shops, grocery stores -everything- easily accessible! And the apartment, with its front porch and dining space plus a large fully stocked kitchen--what can we say?! It was so thoughtfully put together that we can't imagine staying anywhere else!

My wife and I came here for our 35 th wedding anniversary. The property is very welcoming and comfortable in a craftsman type architecture. Close to everything downtown. Walking distance to 5 star dinning. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. Felt very much like home.

I stayed at Caron and Doug's place (front unit) for a work project. I can't say enough about Caron and Doug's hospitality -- they were truly exceptional. In addition, the unit was beautiful, just as in the photos; and very nicely decorated. (It turns out I know one of her sources for ceramics; we have similar taste.) The new fireplace is really very pleasant; I was working very long hours (both at the cottage and at the office), and being able to zone out in front of a fire for a bit in the living room while decompressing was really very pleasant. A car is definitely not needed if you plan to mostly wander around downtown; I was there for three weeks, and only had a car for a few days -- and it was more trouble than it was worth. It's very nice to find a place in California where you don't need a car. It is definitely a city location. No problem for me, I'm from the big city, but bear in mind that during the day there is traffic (automobile and foot) out front. (It was quite quiet in the evenings when I was there.) By the way, there's a café about fifty feet away; I found myself having lunch there on a daily basis. Good food, good coffee, great staff. I will certainly recommend this property to any friend going to SB; and I hope to be able to stay there again. Thank you, Caron and Doug, for your kindness and warmth during my travels (& travails)!

Planning a six-week stay in Santa Barbara it was very important for us to find a place to stay where we would feel at home. We most definitely found this at Caron and Doug’s place. We stayed in the front unit and enjoyed many days and nights sitting on the porch enjoying a glass of wine. The kitchen is fully stocked and perfect for cooking even large meals. The bathroom is wonderfully decorated and with top-end amenities. The Livingroom is very cozy and beautifully decorated with comfortable furniture. Wonderful for cold or rainy nights. In the back Doug has a large grill perfect for meat lovers! We retired to the shade in the Lizard Lounge when temperatures got too high. The garden is a little paradise. The location is very central and you don’t need a car. There are bikes you can use to go everywhere in the city. The best about Casitas de colores are Caron and Dough though. They are very friendly people and know just about everything about wonderful Santa Barbara and gave us so many tips for wonderful experiences..... We are definitely coming back! P. S. We absolutely loved Bootsie....!

I stayed at Corone & Doug's place for almost a month. This was my 3rd trip to Santa Barbara in 24 months, and was by far the best one. I stayed in the front unit and in fact, it is better than the pictures show. What impressed me the most was the attention to detail...everything I needed for my entire stay was there (especially the fully equipped kitchen and the bicycles!). Finally, Corone and Doug not only were available and helpful, but were a lot of fun! I plan on returning.

We stayed in this impeccably decorated and furnished downtown Santa Barbara cottage for our 15th Wedding Anniversary. This is a wonderful one bedroom, one bath cottage in a charming Santa Barbara neighborhood, two blocks away from upper State Street where some of the best restaurants in Santa Barbara are located. Every possible comfort and necessity was provided, including bathrobes, slippers, soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, an iron and ground coffee for the coffee maker. We would like to thank Caron and Doug from the bottom of our hearts for a truly wonderful stay. Caron drove me to the airport to pick up a rental car for the last few days of our stay (although a car is not necessary, as everything is within walking distance from this property). I left an article of clothing behind when we departed, and Caron mailed it to me the same day. In short, If you want an authentic Santa Barbara experience, walking distance from all that Santa Barbara has to offer, this is the place for you. Caron and Doug are truly wonderful hosts! We will definitely be back.
