  • Magical Place To Stay

    "There is something about Karen's home that makes you instantly feel welcome. It's beautifully decorated with all the amenities you could want. We rented the house to celebrate our recent wedding and had friends and family in town from LA, NY, the UK and Hong Kong. Every single person commented on how beautiful the home was. We loved sitting out on the deck and taking in the views. There isn't a bad seat in the house and the kitchen is designed to entertain. All of us loved gathering together, eating and telling stories. A hotel never would have been able to accommodate us all. My biggest concern was my elderly mother being able to get around the house but it was incredibly handicapped friendly. With a bedroom on the main floor and a shower that comes equipped with a handheld hose, my mom had no trouble and was able to enjoy a rare weekend getaway. We were also able to bring our dog Stevie with us which as any dog lover knows is a big deal. Karen is an incredibly gracious host, making sure we had coffee and tea and blankets for outside. She was always very responsive when I had any questions as well. When we left my mom's oxygen tanks, she promptly contacted us and handled some other issues that came up with graciousness. I think the only downside to the entire weekend was that we had to leave. We are already talking with our friends about making this a yearly trip. If you book a stay at Karen's home you're in for a real treat."

  • Great House, Great Owners

    "We visit Santa Barbara frequently and this is the second home we have rented from the same owner. They are attentive, proactive and thoughtful with reservations, arrival and check out. Santa Barbara is our favorite vacation spot, easy to get to from West LA yet we feel a million miles away. We live a hectic lifestyle from work, kids sports, and social commitments. It is refreshing to leave the to do lists and traffic behind and enjoy the peace and quiet of beautiful Santa Barbara. My kids love the beaches, they are dog friendly too, a bonus for our family. We love the shops and dining on State Street and everyone is just happy in Santa Barbara. I guess we would be too if we could live here. We are an outdoor family, the hikes and biking paths are family friendly. The home was clean, comfortable and charming. The neighborhood is supper quiet - you can hear birds in the day and crickets at night. The yard is awesome, great pool and deck area."

  • 4 star place at motel 6 price

    "Great value for the money. Clean and quiet. Chris (the host) is very friendly and very helpful. Rooms/bathrooms have everything (fridge, microwave, coffee maker, cups, good quality toilet paper, etc, etc. No kitchen, no kitchen sink so either bring microwave ready food and disposable paper plates or eat in the city. Two very adorable, super friendly dogs. No cleaning fee (huge plus!) In summary, the best value in Santa Barbara area."

  • WHAT a VRBO experience!!

    "The property was exactly as pictured. The grounds were manicured to perfection, the view was incredible, the host family (Chris Chan) was most gracious and accommodating. She met us upon our arrival, gave us an overview, etc. We were visiting a daughter in SB who does not have room to accommodate guests so this was just perfect for us. We could have some time to our selves to relax, read, explore as well as spend all the family time we needed. Cannot wait to go back! A mere 10 minutes from downtown, and easy drive via the freeway or back roads. it was simply perfect for our visit. If there were 6 stars, this one would get if you enjoy cultural activities, be sure to check out the UCSB Cultural Series -- the Joffrey Ballet was DIVINE!!"
