Charming Beachfront Getaway
"If you're looking for a great gathering place for family right on the sand, this is the place. From the large upper deck to a generous supply of beds and quality linens, this place has it all. Perfect view, excellent location, quiet beach. Honestly, I can't imagine a better set-up than his charming home. There are a couple of things we weren't expecting. First, the house looks nothing like the painting featured on the website (other than being blue and white). There is no interior staircase. The lower two bedrooms require a trip outside and down the steps. Not a big deal but I pictured easier access. Plus, the appliances are a bit dated/small for heavy use. However, if you plan to just warm up items or cook small quantities, there shouldn't be a problem. But I have never seen a better supply of cookware, serving pieces, utensils and glassware in any home, rental or otherwise. As with any house built in the 30s there are typical signs of age but the owner is taking obvious steps to stay on top of these (ie. plantation shutters are gradually replacing originals) but the charm far exceeds any minor annoyances. Plus, the rooftop deck alone (also not mentioned in the listing) with its large BBQ, lounge chairs and tables would make renting this property well worth it."

"What a beautiful home! Everything that you could want for your family....and then some! We brought our 3 kids and it suited us perfectly. The kitchen is amazing, and there's a beautiful backyard to relax in after a day at the beach (which is less than a 10 minute walk!). The owners were so nice and hospitable. It was a great first VRBO experience."

Yet another fantastic stay at this beautiful home!
"We have just had our 6th stay at this beautiful home! We love it so much we keep coming back it feels like we are staying in a friends house rather than a rental property as it is so warm and comfortable, Nik the owner is very attentive yet considers our privacy. We have stayed at other rentals and been relaxing by the pool and the owner has just walked in on the rare occasion that Nik has turned up he always knocks on the door and never just walks in. The house is lovely and the gardens are beautiful plenty of space to relax as a group but equally lots of little places to sit and read a book in quiet. Ideally located for the beach, Santa Barbara the quaint charm of Montecito yet the hustle and bustle of LA is only 90 minutes away. In fact we love it so much we have booked again for next year!"

"This lovely house has it all! Wonderful location, great views of the Pacific, beautiful deco, lovely gardens and spacious rooms. My family of 6 enjoyed ourselves thoroughly while visiting the Central Coast area. We used the pool, cooked in the large, well-equipped kitchen, drank wine on the terrace, and coffee on the smaller patio. This is truly a beloved family home as evidenced by the art, books, antiques and other artifacts from around the world. Highly recommend for families or groups of friends...it's large enough that everyone can have their own space or be all together.
Finally, although we did not get to meet him, Richard was extremely responsive and attentive to any of our questions or concerns."
