boutique cottage with down-to-earth, attentive, generous host
"The cottage could easily be featured in a design magazine..the decor is tasteful, colorful and a feast for the eyes. Janet has thought of everything: FREE bikes, water bottles at the bedside, a bottle of wine, discount tabs for all the local stores and fresh eggs from her chickens (which by the way, you do not even know they are on the property). Our first night, we had trouble with the grill and Janet had it fixed in 20 minutes. I am not one for the beach, so the convenience of the beach being so close enabled my husband to go enjoy while I stayed behind reading a book. All sight-seeing is within a short bike or taxi ride. Would highly recommend and would definately go back...eager to see how the other cottages are decorated. The only thing to be aware of is the alternate side of the street parking, which Janet has also done a great job in displaying a warning sign on the fridge....Santa Barbara police like to give tickets."

"Just returned from a terrific weekend in Santa Barbara. Our accommodations were perfect for my 2 adult children, their spouses and me. Karen and Cliff are great hosts! The townhouse was comfortable, inviting with enough room for the 5 of us to have our own space. We were here for the Fiesta and found ourselves only 3 blocks from the parade as well as many sights and venues. There is a market only a couple of blocks away as well as a trolley that takes you right to the waterfront. I would definitely recommend this place and would come back again!"

"This is the second time my husband and I stayed on this property. First time we stayed in the bigger unit facing the front. We decided to stay in the back unit this time, and it has its own unique charm. The back unit opens up to the lovely patio, which is a relaxing garden oasis. The unit itself is bright colorful with designer finishes. The location is awesome, walking distance to delicious restaurants and downtown Santa Barbara. The kitchen is well stocked, you can easily whip up some homemade food with all the equipment provided. We loved using the bikes that are provided, biking to downtown Santa Barbara, and also easy ride to the beach and waterfront.
Caron and Doug are very friendly hosts. They also give great recommendations around the area should you need it. Last year, I forgot a piece of clothing and Caron promptly mailed it back to me. We look forward to staying there again for another relaxing and magical Santa Barbara stay."

"We were immediately at home in Ric's casual and comfortably furnished two bedroom apartment with fully stocked kitchen, sweet little balcony, expanded cable, and tons of DVDs. If you are seeking a caring landlord/neighbor and a cozy nest with happy vibe that is easy walking distance to the commercial area of State Street and the waterfront shuttle, this is your rental. The bonus for us was Ric's wonderful Labrador, Mila. We have already booked our next month's stay and can't wait to return. Read the other raves for even more info. Thank you, Ric and Mila for your warm welcome to this wonderful Santa Barbara nest!"
