Beautiful ocean views!
Beautiful ocean views!
The Mermaid was exactly what we were looking for! Ocean views from nearly every room, privacy, hot tub, spacious decks, sleepy little town. Corinne has kept this cottage in great shape, and tastefully decorated. She even went above and beyond to arrange to have some items there for our baby (pack and play, high chair and exersaucer)! Her suggestions and brochures for restaurants and things to do were very helpful. And the extra touch of providing a fruit basket, muffins, milk and orange juice certainly came in handy. Great proximity to Santa Barbara and Montecito. The only thing to be aware of in this area is the tar on the beaches...covered the bottoms of my feet!

Owner response: Hi Shannon, I really appreciate all the kind words, I do thank you and your husband for your stay,You are the kind of renters we all hope for, I hope you come to stay here again. Sorry you had to experience the tar on the beach, I have walked down there several times and had nothing on my feet, less times then more. You can experience that on the central coast area, there's oil out there. As you know we don't want them drilling for it, I found the Clorox wipes does get it off. Thank you very much, hope to see you again, Corinne

I rented this very nice home and guest cottage for my daughter's UCSB graduation weekend. The home was tastefully decorated and furnished with all the amenities I needed to make the weekend a success. The weather was perfect - sunny afternoons and warm evenings. After graduation on Saturday we had a family BBQ on the backyard deck with wonderful views of the Pacific Ocean. On Friday afternoon my wife and father-n-law visited the the Summerland Winery for an afternoon tasting. It's just a couple of blocks away and a great place to sample some local wines. The owner took the time to meet us on arrival and made sure everything was ready for our enjoyment. Santa Barbara is only 5 minutes away by car. I would recommend this home if you are looking to visit the Santa Barbara area. A real gem!

Owner response: Thank You for the nice comment, happy to hear everyone had a good time, and your daughters graduation party turned out great. hope to see you again in the future. Thank you, Corinne
The Summerland Cottage was exactly what I was looking for. It's impeccably clean and well designed - the perfect getaway. The house itself if ideal for a solo retreat, romantic weekend, or a few friends getting away. The decks give a terrific view of the ocean, exactly as shown in the pictures. The jacuzzi/spa is fabulous for nights under the stars. You really never have to leave! The owner left a nice basket of fruit, muffins, and coffee. There's also an orange tree on site for fresh juice. Other than that - whatever you need can be found at the market down the hill. The cottage is a short walk to town and the beach. The town is lovely and quaint, with Montecito and Santa Barbara right next door if you need more choices. The owner was very communicative, and the whole transaction was an A+. I would definitely return and highly recommend to anyone looking at this site.

About the owner: My Husband and I live an hour away from Summerland, I fell in love with Santa Barbara County the first time I went there, and hoped some day in my future I would have a place there. We recently bought this house and did a lot of DIY hard work but worth it. We hope to retire here. Hope you love it too.
Why the Owner Chose Summerland:
We chose this property because of the ocean views and the privacy, The quaint town and the neighbors are great. It's close enough to come to when ever we want and enjoy with friends.
