Loved this cottage
"My wife and I rented Little Palm Cottage for a week while exploring Santa Barbara. We loved how clean, pretty and comfortable it was. Light and bright with big windows and glass doors on two sides. It's small but feels very spacious. Comfortable furniture. A real kitchen that is well stocked with everything you need for cooking and dishes. We made breakfast every morning and ate on the back deck under the umbrella table, enjoying the tropical plants and hummingbirds.
The place seems to have been renovated recently and they did a top-notch job... it has the charm of an older home but feels almost new. Perfectly clean inside and out. The neighborhood is quiet (except for the next-door neighbor's wind chimes...grrr) and feels very safe. Easy five-minute walk to the park that overlooks the ocean, and a 15-minute walk on the park pathway down to the wharf area. Highly recommended.

"My 10 year old daughter said this was the best family vacation we have ever had. We spent our spring break here visiting friends and playing at the beach and it was great. Our three kids fell in love with the backyard, as did our dog. The house feels like a cabin and was very comfortable and worked well for our family of 5. The location is convenient to a beautiful, dog-friendly beach and also to stores and restaurants. We usually stay closer to East Beach but found this to be a more central location.
Rebecca was very hospitable, leaving us wine and coffee, lending us beach toys, and responding to questions quickly.
We will definitely be back!"

"This is the second time we've rented this property, and hopefully we'll be able to do it again. This is an ideal Santa Barbara house rental; not too much, not too little. It has all of the right features (great view, nice outdoor patio, barbeque area, and whirlpool). It's located in a nice neighborhood with easy access. We really enjoyed ourselves, and there aren't any drawbacks about this property."

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."
