  • 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."

  • Such a comfortable stay

    "We came to SB for the Veterans Marathon and wanted a place to accommodate 3 couples comfortably. This place was awesome. It is an older home and some of the furnishings reflect that but in more of quaint way than looking old. It was a nice mixture of older and new furnishings, all very comfortable. The bathrooms and kitchen are all nicely remodeled. Nice size rooms. Large family room with plenty of room for all of us to spread out. The house was very clean and is stocked with a nice selection of movies, games and books. There are also nice TV's in all bedrooms. Plenty of linens and towels. There is a large kitchen table that we were all able to sit around for dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing and Barbequing steaks in the backyard and soaking in the Jacuzzi after our race. Quiet neighborhood located just a few blocks from the 101 which made our commutes very convenient and only a few blocks from a grocery store. A few ants in the bathroom when we checked in, most likely from recent rains, but we sprayed and didn't have any further problems. If I had to come up with 1 suggestion or con.... we wanted to eat our dinner outside but the lighting out there was very sparse at the table so we ended up inside. Jill the owner was very easy to work with and responsive. We would definitely come back to this rental if back in the SB area and highly recommend it."

    "We had the most fabulous time at Vivi's house - she greeted us with flowers in the kitchen a very well appointed house and kitchen. The pool was great and our kids loved the yard and the jacuzzi. We loved the lay out of the house and the kitchen in which we spent quite a bit of time. A + home and host - thank you we will be back"

  • Charming Cottage

    "If you are looking to experience Santa Barbara as a local, stay here. This cottage is located in a nice neighborhood just minutes from downtown Santa Barbara and only a short bike ride to the quaint little town of Montecito. We are family of four (two children 9 and 6 years old) and have stayed here multiple times. We have pretty particular taste and have found that this house to always be meticulously maintained, organized, and thoughtfully stocked with a family in mind. Some of our favorite touches: - environmentally conscious (recycling, baskets for the market, natural soaps) - functional kitchen (gas stove and outdoor grill, roaster, pans, bowls, etc) - beach gear (umbrella's, chairs, toys, boogie boards) - all sizes of quality bikes and helmets - clean outdoor shower - gated property so our children can explore safely - swingset - washer and dryer with detergent - great windows for natural light & screen door for lots of fresh air - zen water fountain out the master window - helpful books (the hiking book has helped us explore stunning hikes all around the area...this time we discovered a seal sanctuary where we saw 15 baby seals on the beach with their mamas, we explored quiet towns with beaches where the "locals" hang out, and shared trails with horses that walk through the enchanting forest of Eucalyptus and Sycamore groves woven all around Montecito's polo club that end in a stunning lemon orchard overlooking the ocean. - restaurant board - Cliff has great taste in food and shares his favorite spots around town. His recommendations are always a hit! - lastly, but important, the price is fair and competitive. We love this house, the location, and the owners. We hope you do too. Warmly, Gina Schley (Denver)"
