Loved my stay!
"Stayed at Carla's Cottages for 4 nights while attending a workshop in Santa Barbara. Had a wonderful stay in the Sweet Studio. The bed was comfortable & cozy. Loved the little kitchenette. Reverse osmosis water on the premises so I could fill my water bottles up every day...that was a treat. Carla was incredibly accommodating and super helpful. It was truly like a home away from home. I look forward to returning when in the area again."

"Good venue to entertain groups who are OK with leaving by 10PM; comfortable for small number of extended family and friends from far & wide to spend a weekend. The pool and hot tub were wonderful, as well as the in ground trampoline, pool table, ping pong, and bocci ball court. There was plenty of space for gatherings in multiple large areas both inside and outside. We used the ipod speakers, and took advantage of the large kitchen with bar seating, dining table, and plenty of outdoor seating. We did not use the indoor and outdoor fireplaces, but they looked nice. It was very hot the weekend we stayed, which is unusual for Santa Barbara area. With no AC, or even fans, if it's warm prepare to sweat! With the windows open, there is a constant freeway hum, and early morning train whistle wake up. All in all it was a great place for us to stay for the weekend and suited our needs."

"My Aunt was visiting from out of town and our family decided to enjoy some time in Santa Barbara to do some wine tasting and sight-seeing. The pictures in the listing looked great so we decided to book this home. What can I say that hasn't been said in the previous 5 star reviews? The home was amazing, and the already beautiful pictures didn't do this place justice. Everything about the home, from the furniture to the outdoor landscaping was picturesque. We all felt right at home as the property was very inviting and cozy. The homeowner deserves as 5 star rating also, as she made sure all of our concerns were taken care of. She was friendly, easily accessible, and anticipated all of our needs. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable experience in Montecito/Santa Barbara. We will definitely return in the future."

"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."
