Clean! They thought of everything to make our stay comfortable.
"This is a self-contained suite with a full kitchen, plenty of storage space for travellers belongings, a fully furnished, comfortable living room, with a lovely view of the mountains. There is a full bathroom, complete with bathtub and shower, and a good quality washer and dryer to do laundry. Two comfortable beds with good quality bedding and plenty of extra blankets if needed, are nestled within the living room area. We had our own fenced in back yard, and private entrance to the suite. The back yard is very private and is complete with patio table, umbrella and chairs, and even a real hammock to relax in or take a nap. In the back yard there are shade trees and flowering foliage, as well as lime trees and avocado trees. We enjoyed our breakfast outside in the back yard every morning of our stay. We arrived close to midnight when we arrived, and Clara greeted us with a big smile and welcome. She took us to our suite which is adjacent to her house, and showed us around. We were each given a set of keys, and Clara told us to knock on her door if we needed anything. We didn't, everything had been thought of. We were left to our privacy and only saw Clara once again on the day before we left when we knocked on her door to tell her what time we would be leaving. The location is excellent, there is a market, a drugstore and Trader Joe's all within two or three blocks. Upper State Steet is half a block from Clars's place, and a short ten minute (if that) bus ride will take you right into downtown Santa Barbara. It was a perfect place to stay and we recommend it highly. To"

"We had 11 guests for our week at Silverstrand. The 6 bedroom layout worked well for us... we rented both the first floor "lock-out" 2BR/1BA unit and the top two floor 4BR/2BA.
The top floor is a nearly fully enclosed loft space with a large queen bedroom and a smaller 2-twin area with a bath separating the two sleeping areas. Up top is also a good sized, ocean-facing deck with picnic table.
The main floor of the upper unit has 2BR/1BA, larger living/dining space and open kitchen with small ocean-facing deck, stairs to beach and a larger street-facing deck with two picnic tables.
The first floor lock-out unit has 2BR/1BA and a roomy living-dining-kitchen space with a small ocean-side patio. The view from inside and patio of the first floor unit is limited by sand dunes, but also private for the same reason.
We easily parked 3 vehicles in front of the garage.
The design and accommodations are not as glamorous or as glitzy as some other rentals but the place has a beach house vibe that we all found to be charming, and comfortable. The owners have a decorative wooden plaque at the foyer stating "Keep it Simple" and our whole stay was made better by their approach.
We all enjoyed the beachfront location from early morning coffee on the deck, to runs and walks, to wine sipping during just glorious sunsets over the ocean and beaches. The weather during our 1st week of May rental was cool, foggy mornings, and breezy days.... in other words, just perfect. The beach was just about deserted except for a few jogger/walkers, horizon-gazers, and fishermen.
The Silverstrand location worked well for us. We were celebrating a graduation at Pepperdine University at Malibu and made that 35 minute drive along the PCH a few times and 45 minutes to the Getty Villa and about an hour to Santa Monica. I drove to LAX 3 times during the week - allow about 2 hours for that drive in case of traffic - all three times we made it in about 90 minutes each way. We also spent some time in Ventura (try Brophy Bros. for fish & chips and Steven's Market and Grill for excellent Greek on Main St., Ventura) a 10 minute drive. And Santa Barbara, a 35 minute drive.
For those without cars there are a few dining places within a walk. The house had many beach chairs, beach towels, bath towels, and good quality cookware.
We had a nice time helped greatly by having a good place to stay, responsive owners and Realtor."

"Ditto to all positive comments here in these reviews. Incredible!!! Because the view from EVERY window is only trees, manicured hedges and flowers, we could leave all of the curtains and drapes open to let in the light and fresh breezes. Yet we had complete privacy. Ahhhhhh! Heavenly! What a perfect peaceful hideaway. We also fell in love with the little town of Carpinteria. Thank you!!"
