A friend and I stayed here for a three night get-away and it was perfect. The place is completely remodeled in a very contemporary but cozy fashion. No detail was overlooked--great bedding, thick bathrobes hanging in the closets, nice bath products, a killer sound system and all the required gadgets in the kitchen. There was nothing we needed that wasn't there. Very close to everything in town: walking distance to the beach and State Street; very central location for biking and only a short drive to great hiking trails. The second bedroom had a sleeper sofa versus a regular bed but it was very comfortable so that wasn't a problem. The property manager was very nice and easily accessible. The only negative was the spa. It was one of the main selling points but it smelled a little funky--so much so that we didn't really want to go in it again. I let the property manager know and have no doubt that they'll take care of it. They obviously did an amazing job with this place and I doubt they want anyone else to have that same issue. I would definitely stay here again--it was extremely comfortable and relaxing.

Manager response: We are truly sorry about your spa experience. It was not a problem with the spa itself. Unfortunately, a previous guest let their pooch use the tropical garden area surrounding the spa. Thank you for bringing this to our attention - it will not happen again. We hope you will come back and next time, enjoy the spa!
Perfect Santa Barbara experiance... very close to the beach, zoo, and shopping. We were pleased with the cleanliness, and modern look and amenities. Will definitely consider returning again.

Perfect Santa Barbara experience
Perfect Santa Barbara experience
This unit is just off the beach and near a grocery store. It's absolutely perfect for any kind of holiday. Amenities are five star... everything you need from washer/dryer to beach towels. The decor is superb, very well decorated and comfortable. Entertainment systems easy to use, video and audio. Etc... etc... The hot tub is the best we've ever experienced, and that's saying a lot! Honestly, it's really a highlight of the property. Hope you enjoy this as much as we did. Barb & Jim (Vancouver, Canada)
