First visit to Summerland
The property manager was more than helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was somewhat unhappy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Probably it is just that I am not used to it coming from London... I found the property too close to the freeway, and the constant white noise of cars was not my idea of a beach holiday... Otherwise the place and area were nice and convenient."

"This property is fabulous! It is a beautifully maintained property with ample indoor and outdoor areas to relax and enjoy your vacation. We had a large group with a few different families and our black lab too, and the space was perfect for our needs. The open area of the kitchen, dining room, den and living room created a wonderful opportunity for spacious and comfortable togetherness for our large group of adults and children. When we needed quiet and privacy, there was plenty of space for that as well, with nicely separated bedrooms and bathrooms, including the attached studio. The indoors were both homey and elegant, and the outdoor areas were stunningly landscaped and easily accessible. We enjoyed opening the doors to various decks and spreading out to enjoy the amenities of the house and the amazing Santa Barbara sunshine at the same time. Ms. Winthrop was incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the entire process, answering questions and providing lots of information about the house and the area. One thing that was a surprise was how close the house is to the freeway. That being said, the noise was easily quieted when the windows were shut and the beautiful and lush gardens around the house created an amazing oasis feeling. It also made it very convenient to other areas of the charming city. We loved our stay here!!"

"We stayed for the weekend with our adult daughters, and I'm happy to know we have such a sweet spot to land when we come back to Montecito. The cottage is ... well a cottage, and so not large, but the space is not at all tight. The rooms are open and light, with a fairytale forest feeling from the mature plants and shady garden. My first thought upon entering was that it was the house I'd dreamed of owning when I was young. The bed was comfy (I didn't ask about the sleeper sofa, but the girls didn't complain), there was room to sit together and play games, eat a meal at ease around the table, and lounge about with books on easy chairs. I loved the soft air moving through the sheer curtains, and the protected quiet feel of the night. The owner is unobtrusive, friendly, and responsive."
