Wonderful Quiet Retreat
Wonderful Quiet Retreat
Rent this house for the garden and the pool. This is a very nice quiet house - well maintained and well decorated. The jewel of the property though is the garden and pool. The garden is peaceful and pretty with citrus trees and complete privacy. The pool was joy for the kids and adults alike - too small to swim but definitely fun to dip in. Beautiful starry evening setting for a family dinner too. The house itself is very well maintained and well decorated. The rooms are as advertised and the living area is very spacious. The house is well-situated on a very quiet street. Arroyo Burro beach is very close (locals call it something else), there are great parks and hiking/mountain biking trails within a couple of miles and State Street (main drag) is less than 2 miles away (10 minute drive due to winding streets). Great place and well managed!

Amazing Backyard Retreat!
Amazing Backyard Retreat!
We had an amazing stay at this home. It's perfect for three couples, if one couple doesn't mind sleeping on a pull out trundle bed. The kitchen is very well appointed and newly remodeled and had everything we needed to make gourmet meals. We lucked out with the weather in October and got to spend a lot of time relaxing and enjoying the pool and hot tub. Eve was great and met us at the house and showed us how to operate things and gave some us great ideas about restaurants too. The bathrooms are outdated as are two of the bedrooms but the rest of the remodeled house more than makes up for this--especially the amazing backyard and pool area. The location is also great--very close to town and even some views of the ocean. Thank you for a great stay!

Stayed here for my son's wedding weekend and it was beautiful. Enjoyed the house, the backyard, loved the music in all rooms. So sorry we didn't get to enjoy the house enough as we were running everywhere. My only complaint was the hot tub did not get very hot. Overall, excellent house. I would stay there again.

5 of us gathered in SB for a girl's weekend. We loved the place! Beautiful backyard with fantastic pool, nice jacuzzi (no jets), lovely relaxing home, comfortable beds. Warm and inviting, lived-in in a good way, not like some more sterile rentals. We happened to be up there on an unusually hot weekend and they have no AC. Was a little warm during the day but not a big deal since we were out by the pool and things cooled off in the evening. Eve and David were super nice, gave very helpful restaurant and traffic tips, responded quickly when we had a question and made everything easy. Highly recommend. :)

I highly recommend this comfortable, clean, and well-equipped house. It's a great choice for a family, as the pool and the spa kept our children entertained around the clock. The manager Eve was always very responsive to our inquiries. The closest beach, which is beautiful, is less than 5 minutes of driving away.

Thank you very much Eve, We have spent an amazing 10 days in this house. You have made our stay perfect, thanks to your help and attention. The house was greatly equipped so that a family with 4 kids can enjoy the maximum, the ubicacion of the house was very good, less than 10 minutes away from state street, in a nice residential area. With a complete kitchen, 2 beautiful living rooms and 3 comfortable bed rooms. We will always remember our stay in this lovely home.

My husband and I had a wonderfully relaxing week there and were so pleased to find everything that we could have needed. A fully equiped kitchen made it easy to have any meals we chose at home, including Thanksgiving with our kids coming. I would highly recommend this type of vacation getaway.

We had a wonderful stay at the Santa Barbara Oasis. This included parents, an adult child and two grandchildren. The house and grounds were well cared for and Eve, the agent, was always reachable and most helpful. The pool and spa were a joy; the kitchen was up to date and immaculate and the two washers and two driers kept us all sartorially sparkling! There is so much to do in SB but it was hard to leave this idyllic retreat and a treat to come home to.

The back yard is amazing!
The back yard is amazing!
We had a wonderful time here! The home is wonderfully stocked and has all the creature comforts you would want. It has a great open concept and the kitchen and living areas have been nicely updated. It is obvious they have put a lot of time into the maintenace of the back yard. We spent most of our days in the pool. Make sure you get it heated, it feels amazing!!! I would definitely recommend staying here and may do so myself again in the future!

Never wanted to leave the house

We enjoyed the house so much, it was hard to get out and enjoy Santa Barbara. The backyard was wonderful everything you can possibly want for a vacation home. The beds were very cozy, I slept like a baby. I would love to come back next year, maybe around the 4th of July!
