                            It is challenging to find a quiet place to stay in Santa Barbara. This was a great find! Excellent restaurants and shopping are a short walk away. A few steps more and you reach the beach. The room is well-appointed and comfortable. We've already booked our next stay.

                            My husband and I stayed in this residential guest house to be near our friends staying in the booked-up Montecito Inn. We were delighted by it's proximity to the main drag - right around the corner - and the easy walk down to the Biltmore and beach. The room is attractive and well appointed and the bed is the MOST COMFORTABLE ever, with incredibly soft sheets! We truly had a hard time getting out of bed in the morning because it was so cozy. The heater works well and took the chill off very quickly. Bathroom and shower stall are small, but the water pressure was great. The only shortcoming of this rental was a lack of a closet to hang things in, though there is an amoire that we didn't use. Proprietors were very nice and hands-off. Highly recommend!

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, tourists without a car, sightseeing.

                            Great place to stay in Montecito. Truely close to the beach and shopping. Hosts are very kind and helpful. Place is stocked in the kitchenette (plates, silverware, toaster oven, coffee, water and creamer available when we arrived and bedding and towels are soft. The place is bright and perfect in size. Only negative is that the shower is a little small. Great shower head and water pressure, just a bit tight in size. Would come back and stay in a heartbeat.

                            My wife and I had another great week at Eric and Pam's wonderful efficiency apartment. See my review from last summer. Some tips: 1) Try the wheat germ blueberry pancakes at the East Beach Cafe . 2) If you like plants, don't miss "Lotus Land", but be sure to make reservations far in advance. 3) Bike or drive down to Carpinteria for a coffee and pastry at CrushCakes or a Crab Louie at Sly's.

                            Thank you to Pam and Eric for creating such a beautiful and relaxing space for us and for being such warm and gracious hosts. The cottage was very clean,comfortable and private. It is in the perfect location to explore Montecito by foot as well as close to a bus stop to go into Santa Barbara. We couldn't have asked for a better spot for our getaway from Los Angeles. We highly recommend staying here.

                            My husband and I enjoyed our stay and would recommend this studio casita to others looking for an affordable stay in Santa Barbara. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. We walked to Butterfly Beach, the Biltmore as well as restaurants and shops on Coast Village Rd. I would recommend Tre Lune for a nice Italian dinner. The kitchenette was perfect for making breakfast. The patio was not private so we did not feel comfortable sitting outside or having our shades open. The sensored lighting was helpful when we returned in the evening. Thank you for sharing your casita with us! It was a great location for attending my nephew's graduation from Westmont College.

We have no reservations recommending the property. The area is perfect for active individuals with nearby restaurants that offer positive dining experiences. Having a car is a must in order to explore the area fully.

                            This studio was absolutely perfect! You are close to town/restaurants (try Jeannine's), close to the beach, close to hiking, and close to wineries! The owner's were fantastic too - they will offer travel advice but are definitely not intrusive on your vacation. The bed was extremely comfortable too! I wish we had more time here because it was definitely my favorite spot of our vacation. Will definitely be back!
