"Staying at Brenda's house was a treat. We felt so lucky to be allowed to stay there and honoured that she would trust us with her home, a very special place.
First of all, the view of Santa Barbara with it's white stucco buildings and terracotta roofs, all the way to the Pacific Ocean is amazing. Because the house is located on a hill, you get to see all of this from every room on the first floor. It is so incredibly breath taking day and night and you never tire of it. Combined with the sound of church bells and wind chimes we couldn't help but feel relaxed (especially when our kids were asleep!).
The house itself is super comfortable and has everything you need to feel right at home. You can tell that a lot of care and thought has gone into it with it's double glazed windows, beautiful wooden floors, time-operated extractor fan in the main bathroom, an electric toilet/bidet also in the main bathroom, and a well laid out gourmet kitchen (loved the island bench with second sink!). Also, most shops and restaurants are only a few minuted drive so you are reasonably central.
Brenda herself is such a warm and thoughtful person. She helped us to find a babysitter so that we could go out and enjoy a meal without the kids.
We highly recommend this house and miss it already!"
