  • Wonderful spring break getaway

    "We are a family of 4 (2 tween boys) and had a wonderful spring break at Serenity house. It had everything we could need and more! Don't pack bikes or beach chairs or umbrellas, Serenity house has it all!"

  • Couple with Dog

    "This was the best VRBO we've stayed in. Lots of light and air with french doors that can be left open so the wonderful breezes can waft through. The cottage is very private with roses and fruit trees lining the path to the cottage gate. It is very clean and very pretty, with nice dishes and a comfortable couch and chairs. Vicki was extremely responsive. It's clear she is proud of her cottage and wants to make sure her guests enjoy themselves. It was nice to stay in a place that really welcomed rather than just tolerated dogs. Dog treats, dog towels, and dog bowls were provided. I booked the cottage because it is less than a mile from Hendry's Beach where dogs can be off leash, and we went there every day, sometimes more than once. Our dog had a great time meeting other dogs and running in the surf. We ate breakfast every day on the cottage deck and watched the birds and enjoyed the great, private view. I'd love to go back."

  • A great home with great views of the harbor and ocean

    "This was our second visit to Santa Barbara, and we knew the area where the home is located, so our expectations were high. When we entered the house and walked through to the porch overlooking the ocean, I realized that we were going to have a wonderful time living there again. It is hard to overstate the pleasure we got just from looking at the ocean - from the porch, from the living room, from the dining room. But we also got great pleasure from the wonderful cooking areas, both inside and in the outside area. We had many memorable meals with friends in Santa Barbara. The small yard is beautifully planted and maintained. The home is minutes from the harbor, Shoreline Drive Park, the Douglas Preserve, and Hendry's beach. We walked in one of these at sunset almost every day. We also took advantage of the nearby harbor to take several sailboat trips to watch the sea life in the channel. We also discovered that we were only a short drive away from some great hikes in the foothills of Santa Barbara. Our months living in this home were wonderful. Living there exceeded our very high expectations."

  • Gets better each time!

    "This was the second winter that we've spent at this house. When we were here in 2014 we were amazed that the house was so perfectly maintained. Arriving this year, 2015, we found so many improvements (even though few were needed). There were new ceiling fans, outdoor furniture, and a new water system. The home is maintained as though the owners were living in it. I would expect that we will be here each winter for as long as the wonderful owner (and manager) will have us! It really has become our second home."
