"We needed a place to accomodate our family for my son's wedding. This place was a few miles from the venue and the beach. It is close to the freeway and downtown Santa Barbara but far enough way to enjoy the beautiful amenities it had to offer. The beautiful garden was enjoyable in the morning for coffee or evening after a day of exploring. Definitely a place to return and use again."

"When I arrived on location, I couldn't believe that this was the beach house we rented. Yes, all of the images and descriptions were accurate online. But I didn't think I was going to be so enchanted by the place.
I stayed here with nine other adults. There were some questions from my friends as to how we would fit ten adults in a beach house. Well let me tell you: it was easy! The house has three bedrooms (with room for two in each) and two couches that convert into beds (both are big enough for two). There is a trick to converting the couches that took us a while to figure out: the pull-out mattress has a handle on the side to adjust the height.
The house itself is gorgeous and looks and feels "lived-in." There are books, board games, cooking tools, dinnerware, coffee, popcorn, televisions, an iPod speaker, a PING PONG TABLE--pretty much everything you would find (or would want) in your own home. It's like you're staying at a friend's house and not some random rental without charm or life. Did I mention there is a jacuzzi?
The location was great. The beach is nearby. State Street is about a half hour's walk (did not actually time it, but it didn't seem too far). Trader Joe's and CVS are just around the corner for all of your needs. Just fantastic.
All in all, it was a magical vacation and it wouldn't have been so without being able to stay at such an amazing house. Would stay again!"

"I would have given Park Place a five star or an Excellent rating, but - like many homes close to the Ocean - there is no air conditioning. We arrived during an unusually hot spell (90 - 95) so we found the heat uncomfortable. We also had to deal with some ants in the bathroom areas (only - not the kitchen). Other than those 2 things we did enjoy Park place and would highly recommend this location/vacation rental and we ourselves would look forward to renting it - again."

"We just experienced our 4th consecutive spring visit to Carla's Cottages! We always rent the poolside unit for the month of April since it's the largest (2br/2ba) and even though it's just myself, my husband and our dog, It's become our home away from home and lives so large! We cook dinner generally 5-6 nights a week and treat ourselves to dinner out onice in a while...but with a full kitchen we eat three meals a day on the beautiful patio or at our dining room table that seats 4! The location is perfectly situated to access the best hiking and biking trails as well as dog friendly beaches from Summerland to Butterfly! We feel so lucky to have found this special place especially since it is dog friendly! A rare find in Montecito, especially at this price point!"
