                                (Transcribed from guestbook at the property) We came from Texas and Iowa to gather for a long weekend visiting family who reside in Santa Barbara. Sand Dollar was the perfect vacation home for us! The layout is perfect and the decor lovely. For first-time SB visitors, we suggest you don't miss out on: La Super Rica on Milpas, McConnell's Ice Cream and Pierre LaFond Bisto on State St, Giovanni's Pizza on Coast Village Road, Butterfly Beach, and Franceschi Park off APS.

                                (Transcribed from the guestbook at the property) Thank you for sharing this home. Our family had a great time re-connecting. We traveled from South Carolina, Texas, and San Francisco to celebrate Thanksgiving here. The grounds are beautiful. The quick walk to the beach is perfect, the house has been thoughtfully done. The loft was perfect for the 4 and 6yr old boys. The kitchen cooked up a five course Thanksgiving meal that we enjoyed outside (this may be the only time we ever eat outside for Thanksgiving). We have had a relaxing, fun-filled week.

We weren't originally suppose to stay here but the other place that we stayed at had a gas leak. But we are SO glad we chose this place to stay in! The location is great and it feels just like home! We could move in today! Very nice property. We will definitely come back!

We have loved the bright sunny decor and inviting kitchen - in addition the beautiful lawn out back and the outdoor dinning area were wonderful. It is such a blessing to be able to enjoy this with my entire family - husband, parents, 2 children, brother/wife and niece! Thanks for sharing it with others!!

We discovered Hammond Trail and went swimming with the dolphins and made our first visit to Lotus Land too. Our second visit was just as fabulous as the first. Thanks again!
