  • Great getaway cottage

    "This cottage and the owners are wonderful. The cottage was fully stocked and welcoming. There was even laundry detergent, bike helmets, and coolers for a picnic. It is very clean and decorated nicely. We were a little worried about the street parking a short distance down the ally from the cottage, but, never had any problems. The neighbors are very friendly as well. We slept with the windows open every night and woke up to birds chirping every morning."

  • The Picture Perfect Beach Front Location – Miles Away From Ordinary

    "Our family vacationed here in December and could not have been more pleased. This was the most fun and relaxing time we have had in Santa Barbara. This neighborhood is one of the nicest in the area. Right on Leadbetter, a Family Friendly Beach, there is a short pathway to the sand and a well-traveled promenade from Leadbetter to State St., which we walked daily. Each morning we eat breakfast in the Lanai and watched for Dolphins, which was an exciting & daily performance. The house is comfortable and well stocked. There was plenty of parking, a strong WiFi connection, comfortable beds and board games. We had a wonderful time playing Yahtzee over the Christmas Holiday. We had to buy the game when we returned home. The house was very clean and well maintained; the Management was excellent and easy to work with. The booking process was quick and easy and we received our Security Deposit returned within a few days. The Mid-way house cleaning was convenient as well. It was so nice to know we had that service during our stay. The hot tub was clean and relaxing. In fact the entire property receives incredible care through out the week to maintain its beauty. We were impressed. We enjoyed our Holiday and can not wait to return."

  • Our little paradise!

    "We have been renting the renovated barn for a month every winter for the past three years. This place is a gem in every way. The first year we came here we could hardly believe our luck in finding such a place.The porch is furnished with comfortable couches and chairs as well as a lovely table for meals. It is the perfect place to read a book, do a puzzle or just have a glass of wine while viewing the beautiful vistas. The barn has been renovated with top quality upgrades. The decorating is beautiful with original paintings by the artist/landlord. The barn has two units. We have stayed in the lower as well as the upper and find both delightful. We look forward to our month here as our time in paradise! Jamee (owner/landlord) makes us feel like family. She is accommodating in every way but is respectful of our privacy."

Santa Barbara Travel Tips

Situated between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains, the city boasts a delightfully warm climate throughout the year, and as one of California’s most affluent areas, you can be sure there’s plenty of exciting cultural attractions to experience.

Head to the downtown area to witness stellar architecture in addition to museums, shopping, fine dining and an exciting nightlife scene. Throughout the rest of the city you’ll find even more to do. There’s plenty of outdoor space where you can plan a hike or a bike ride, laze around on the beach or partake in water sports like surfing.

Santa Barbara is often considered the American Riviera because of its stunning natural scenery, including picturesque beaches, magnificent mountains and unique way of life that make it a premier destination for visitors from all over the world.

Things to Do

- Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History: Founded in 1916, the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History is the oldest museum in the city. It’s located in Mission Canyon and covers 12 acres. The museum is housed in a Mission-style, Spanish-Mediterranean complex of buildings and known for its dioramas of birds, mammals and southern Californian habitats. There’s also exhibits on marine life, geology, Chumash life and an art gallery dedicated to prints of natural history. The museum is also home to one the largest collections of Native American basketry from Chumash basket weavers.

- Santa Barbara Botanic Garden: See some of the best that nature has to offer at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden with 78 acres boasting more than 1,000 species of rare and indigenous plants. The garden is an ideal place to see native California plants in their natural settings. There’s also almost 6 miles of hiking trails in the garden, so you can enjoy some physical activity in between enjoying the natural sights.

- Chumash painted cave: For a truly unique experience, visit the Chumash Painted Cave State Historic Park where there’s a small sandstone cave preserved with rock art from the Chumash people. The drawings depict cosmology and other subjects created from mineral pigments. Trek down the path in the park that leads to the cave to experience this special location.

- East Beach: Hitting up the beach is a must-do in Santa Barbara, and East Beach is a great option. It’s often the first beach seen when entering the city, and it’s a well-known area for volleyball. In fact, several tournaments are held here throughout the year. East Beach has lifeguards so you won’t have to worry about water safety while you enjoy the sun and surf. There’s also a snack bar, a play area for kids and a bike bath.

Shopping and Dining

- Stearns Wharf: Get a multisensory experience with a visit to Stearns Wharf. Feel the ocean breeze across your face as the sun beams down, and breathe in the salty sea air. Relax for a while watching local fishing boats unload their morning catch or visit the special aquarium. You can also taste local wines and enjoy a deliciously fresh seafood meal after perusing the various shops.

- Paseo Nuevo: Paseo Nuevo is another great place to shop and dine. Located in downtown Santa Barbara, the outdoor shopping spot boasts Spanish-style architecture surrounded by beautiful flowers, trees and fountains. Explore the various shops selling clothing, beauty products, art and other goods. You can pick up some souvenirs to remember your vacation, then stop by one of the many eateries like Kahuna Grill, Pascucci or Sakura.

- Cajun Kitchen: You’ll want to start your day with a hearty breakfast, so stop by Cajun Kitchen. Each item is served with home fries, hash browns or grits as well as toast, an English muffin, flour tortilla, homemade biscuit, homemade blueberry muffin or homemade cornbread. Choose from a variety of omelets, burritos, oatmeal and more for a delicious main course.

- Cold Spring Tavern: After a day of fun, you can relax and dine on a tasty meal at Cold Spring Tavern. The meals here are prepared with homestyle techniques and everything is made with fresh ingredients bought from local producers. Favorite dishes include Western-style barbecue, Cold Spring chili and freshly baked breads. On the weekends you can especially enjoy the fun atmosphere here with live music from bands and singers.
