My husband and I spent xmas week here and it was wonderful. Everything in the house seems brand new and high quality. We loved hanging out in the loft upstairs where you can actually see the ocean. The place is 10 times better than the pictures and the owners were very helpful with everything. Thanks!

Really was home away from home!

I found this listing by surfing the net. I have to admit I was a little leary when I sent my original deposit, because you hear of horror stories happening to people when they arrive at rental vacation homes. You know, pictures posted look great and you arrive and the place is a dump... As I corresponded with Karin more, my worries were lessened. Karin is fantastic to work with, very prompt at returning emails, keys came exactly when they were supposed to, deposit refund check came back in a timely manner and I felt completely relaxed and confident through the whole transaction. When we arrived at the house we were absolutely thrilled with our decision to rent this home for our stay in Santa Barbara. The house was immaculate! It has such a homey feel, we were immediately comfy and relaxed. It is set up so that you really don't have to bring anything but your clothes and food. I was amazed at how well stocked the house is. I even brought extra towels and blankets from home, just in case, and there was no need for them. They stayed in the car.Trust me when I say that anything you could possibly need is there! Karin also provides a binder filled with so much good information; answering every question you could have about the house, and wonderful recommendations for good restaurants and entertainment places to patronize. The house is in a great location. Neighborhood is pretty, and nice and quiet. Everything is really close, the beach, pier, shopping, zoo are only minutes away. We went to celebrate my son graduating from high school, and had such a wonderful stay. I hope we get the opportunity to visit again someday. I would definitely recommend this home to my friends or relatives. Thanks for a great stay Karin! Andrena Lopez

Owner response: Thank You Andrena, nice to know renters appreciate all we do!
This home was a wonderful choice for our week vacation in Santa Barbara. It's an easy walk down to Shoreline park or the beach and an easy drive to many of Santa Barbara's other attractions. The house is very clean, well maintained and the layout is great. We really liked how the living room opens into the large, private backyard with grill. Karin, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with. He answered all my questions and made sure all the details were taken care of. I left my good watch there and he worked with the cleaners to find it and get it back to me. Thanks for a great stay.

What a great house!! Ideally located to reach the Santa Barbara shoreline. The proximity to State St and the beach made travelling with little children easier. The amenities made you feel like you were right at home. The sofa bed was very comfortable, the bedrooms were well appointed, and it was nice to have a pack-n-play at the house so we did not have to pack our own. The backyard was perfect for eating outside and enjoying the weather. The kitchen was gourmet and we ate all meals at the house, which saved a lot of money. The size of the house makes it perfect for families to share. We would definitely rent again!

We rented this lovely home for a week while my in-laws from Ireland were visiting. The home was perfect! It was beautifully decorated with lots of personal touches--you felt like you were staying at a good friend's house and not an impersonal rental. The house was also ideally located and very close to the beach and shops. We highly recommend this great house

Do not let the outside of this non-descript home fool you ... the accomodations are beautifully tasteful and luxurious. From the furnishings to the linens, you will fully enjoy the fabulous taste of your hosts! Santa Barbara speaks for itself with its amazing beaches, restaurants and shopping! This home will enhance your stay with its dreamy beds, thick linens, fully equiped kitchen and amazing outdoor entertaining!! We threw a birthday party the second day we arrived for 12 people and 6 kids ... it was a snap with these accomodations! We book every July and November! We highly recommend it!

Our family recently rented the house for 2 weeks. Over the course of the two weeks, we had between 8 to 10 people in the house and it worked out very well. The sofa beds are incredibly comfortable which was great because everyone got a good night's sleep! We mostly ate our meals at the house and the kitchen was well stocked to cook for 2 families. The patio has a large table and the whether was great so we ate all of our meals on outside. After dinner we would head down to the beach and watch the dolphins play in the water which was such a treat for the kids. In the morning we would walk down to the beach and when the tide is out, it was a great place to let the kids explore the tide pools and collect shells. Carpenteria is only 10 mins south and was a great place to take the kids boogie boarding. There are so many great activities in SB that we never found ourselves bored or looking for something to do. The beaches and restaurants were very clean which is a big plus with kids. The house was very clean and comfortable and we would stay there again!
