"Walking into the home and the beautiful ocean view was spectacular. We did not want to leave, and some of the trips we had planned were not necessary because the view was exactly what we were looking for, and we wanted to enjoy it. What added to the stay was the wonderful walks and wildlife in the area, there was a deer or two in the neighborhood daily including a fawn, wild turkeys and we even saw a skunk sleeping thank goodness. Watching the birds from the main floor and the balcony were magnificient. There are two walking trails in the area one Lampton Cliffs (stairs down to ocean) and I forgot the other one but the view and various places to sit and enjoy the view are wonderful. I was able to read 3 books.
we would definately stay again."

"My husband and I stayed here for a couple of months and we were thrilled with evey part of the experience. Cooking feels like you are in the great outdoors because of the phenomenal views of the ocean and the Channel Islands and you are thoroughly surrounded by luxury and comfort.
Waking up was my favorite. You could see the mist lift off the ocean and could pick oranges from the deck for breakfast. It's open, bright and very private. Walking this neighborhood offers the best of Santa Barbara and after you can come home for a game of bocce ball!"

"We held our annual high school reunion of eleven longtime friends at the Bella Vista property. There were no problems bunking up with one other person in any of the five very large bedrooms. There is also a casitas by the pool too. In fact, each room could have accommodated a third person with the trundle bed. There was plenty of space for everyone to sleep. The home sits on a hill top with spectacular views of Aptos/Capitola and the ocean. Don’t worry about the fog in the morning if you book in late spring or early summer. The fog is usually gone by 12 noon if not before. There is a large deck with plenty of space to enjoy the views. Trish and Mark have thought of all amenities down to the smallest details. For example, there are two coffee makers and two very large refrigerators. The pool is surrounded by tables and lounge chairs with several large umbrellas to provide shade in the day time and space heaters to enjoy the outdoors at night. The kitchen is quite large and is stocked with everything you need to feed a large crowd. There is a BBQ on the deck and we made dinner several nights. The cabinets were well stocked with an abundant supply of glasses, dishes and cutlery as well as a quality supply of cook ware. Our group has frequently rented houses for our annual reunion in the Sonoma and Napa area but this was by far was the most beautiful and nicest properties we have ever rented. We all loved it so much, we have already booked it for next year. Our only selfish fear is that more people will discover this great and wonderful home and it may be even harder to reserve it in the future."

"This was our second stay at the Mouse House and we loved it again! The location is so perfect for letting the kids spend at much time on the sand and at the beach as they want. And you don't have to tote everything you own there first. The house provides plenty of towels and all of the kitchen supplies we needed to cook most of our meals there; having the dishwasher and washing machine and dryer made everything that much easier. We all wanted to stay longer - we'll have to start planning our return trip!"
