  • Wonderful For Thanksgiving Family get together!

    "Happy Thanksgiving! We had a wonderful family get together. We have downsized and needed a home for the whole family to come and just play and relax. This home was full of fun activities for the kids and adults. We had a great experience and would do it again. The game room and back yard were fun for family activities and well equipped. There were lots of sleeping accommodations. The atrium provided a great, friendly indoor/outdoor feel and made for a nice flow of fun. The house was clean and well maintained with plenty of towels and extra bedding and pillows. The 12 seat dining room table was great for meals and Thanksgiving dinner. Try it and you'll love it! We will recommend it to our friends! The owner was accommodating and left us roses and champagne which were a friendly touch. Santa Barbara has great activities and weather. Nothing is far away. Public transformation could be difficult since it is in a neighborhood just outside Santa Barbara, but with transportation everything is within 10 - 15 minutes. With much thanks, R and M & Family"

  • Mountain View Retreat - fabulous home!

    "I wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had last week in your beautiful home. The home was everything promised and more. We had all our children, their spouses and 6 grandchildren together for the week to celebrate our 40th anniversary. One night we had a chef prepare dinner and we all sat on the patio, with its beautiful view, dancing to romantic songs under the stars. The home was so well appointed. Everything functioned perfectly. The amount of towels and linens was amazing. Description and pictures on the website were accurate, but it was even better seeing it in person. I would highly recommend this home and want to go back soon!!"

  • Perfect SB Cottage!

    "This home was just CHARMING and perfect for our girls weekend! The home was all of the history, detail and charm you would want from Santa Barbara, with all of the modern amenities as well. There was Wi-Fi, a flat screen with a DVD player, and convenient access to anywhere we wanted to go. They even left a book full of helpful information should we need anything at all. The home was extremely clean and had all the appliances we would possibly need (coffee maker, iron, toaster, kitchen supplies, etc). I will definitely be staying again, and hope to stay longer next time! Thank you again SO MUCH for hosting us!"

Santa Barbara Beach Rentals are Home Away from Home

When you visit the Santa Barbara area, think about how you want to spend your time. If you have friends in the area, renting one of the Santa Barbara beach rentals will allow you to entertain your friends, which you can not do if you stay in a cramped hotel room. Throw your own dinner party or invite old friends over for a backyard barbecue when you rent a home bursting with amenities. If you or your friends have kids, let them play in the backyard while you catch up. If anyone needs a nap, the adults can go right on visiting while the children sleep inside.

Individuals and families can tour famous landmarks, wineries and ghost towns, as well as movie studios and other places made famous by celebrities.
