"I spent a week in this lovely apartment and enjoyed every aspect of it (ok I did have a love/hate relationship with the enormous sofa but plenty of pillows are provided to help you get cozy). The apartment was immaculate. The kitchen not only has new appliances but a very nice quality cookware and I didn't look for any type of pan that I didn't find. With granite counter tops it was not only easy to keep tidy but was very attractive as well.
The bed ... OMGOSH the bed ... FAB-U-LOUS! You will get some great sleep on that bed. And although the closet is small, I think there would be plenty of room for clothes for two. Was nice to find a fan in there when I wanted to have the air moving at night.
And then there is the bathroom. It's enormous ... a huge jacuzzi tub, a beautiful shower with two heads, and two counter tops in case there are two of you getting ready for the day.
I too initially felt the the abundance of glass gave a little too much exposure but you are indeed only exposed to other residents and that turned out being kind of nice. A very quiet and safe neighborhood so I kept the windows open to the wonderful spring breezes the entire time I was there. And if you feel the need for extra privacy, every piece of glass has a blind to completely cover it. There was also a nice gas grill on the kitchen balcony and a bistro table and chairs. I seriously never felt I needed anything that I wasn't able to find in the apartment.
As other reviewers have stated, there are so many things to do and see within walking distance, but since I had a rental car, I found it wonderful to have an assigned parking space just feet from my front door. I only had to lug luggage up around 4 stairs so it was a very sweet deal. The next time I return to Santa Barbara, I will definitely request this apartment.
As a side note, I have only been back home four days and already received my security deposit back. Just don't think you can go wrong here unless you are there during a heat wave. No AC might be a problem then but it wasn't during my stay. Five stars all the way!!"

"Great Place! Check out passing whales near sunset, then walk to dinner if you are too relaxed to cook in the comfortable kitchen. You can run the trails in the morning, jump in the ocean to cool off, and visit a winery all before noon! Afternoon snooze in the beautiful garden, a little surf, BBQ, hot tub, This is living! Will be back."

"As a former resident of Santa Barbara for 25 years when I return to visit
I want & need to feel as if I am "home". The Penthouse has not only fulfilled that wish, it has
far exceeded my high expectations. This has been my 3rd stay over a period of 6 years and the
unit is still as perfect now as it was during my 1st stay. The Penthouse has every possible convenience and
appliance, all of which are in perfect condition, that one could ask for. The unit is spotlessly clean & the reservation, check in & check out are simple and easy. I simply can not say enough good things about the Cava's & their properties ! Sterling LeFevre"
