Home away from home.....
Home away from home.....
Stayed here while visiting with my son & grandson for a long weekend & absolutely loved it! The cottage is very small but soooo cozy, homey & well decorated. Plus very tidy & clean. It was also a treat to have a well stocked kitchen so we didn't have to eat out every meal. My grandson had a soccer tournie at UCSB & this location was so convenient. Even though it feels like you're out in the hills----with amazing views----it's only about a mile from State St. & 101. The best of both worlds! My son also was able to bring his dog Deuce along, which was a real bonus----not to mention, Deuce was a happy camper with so much room ro roam around. The owners, Nancy & Geoff, couldn't have been more accomodating, helpful & easy to work with. After having stayed at various motels over the years to visit, this will be my "go to" spot from now on......hope it'll be available!!! Thanks again to Nancy & Geoff.
