"I spent a week in this lovely apartment and enjoyed every aspect of it (ok I did have a love/hate relationship with the enormous sofa but plenty of pillows are provided to help you get cozy). The apartment was immaculate. The kitchen not only has new appliances but a very nice quality cookware and I didn't look for any type of pan that I didn't find. With granite counter tops it was not only easy to keep tidy but was very attractive as well.
The bed ... OMGOSH the bed ... FAB-U-LOUS! You will get some great sleep on that bed. And although the closet is small, I think there would be plenty of room for clothes for two. Was nice to find a fan in there when I wanted to have the air moving at night.
And then there is the bathroom. It's enormous ... a huge jacuzzi tub, a beautiful shower with two heads, and two counter tops in case there are two of you getting ready for the day.
I too initially felt the the abundance of glass gave a little too much exposure but you are indeed only exposed to other residents and that turned out being kind of nice. A very quiet and safe neighborhood so I kept the windows open to the wonderful spring breezes the entire time I was there. And if you feel the need for extra privacy, every piece of glass has a blind to completely cover it. There was also a nice gas grill on the kitchen balcony and a bistro table and chairs. I seriously never felt I needed anything that I wasn't able to find in the apartment.
As other reviewers have stated, there are so many things to do and see within walking distance, but since I had a rental car, I found it wonderful to have an assigned parking space just feet from my front door. I only had to lug luggage up around 4 stairs so it was a very sweet deal. The next time I return to Santa Barbara, I will definitely request this apartment.
As a side note, I have only been back home four days and already received my security deposit back. Just don't think you can go wrong here unless you are there during a heat wave. No AC might be a problem then but it wasn't during my stay. Five stars all the way!!"

"Santa Barbara Beach Getaway was perfect for our "girls getaway" trip! There were four of us and we all thought it was the perfect location. It is located in a residential neighborhood so it is quiet at night. Yet we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. The condo is nicely furnished and the kitchen had everything we needed! Working with Melanie was pleasant and easy...everything was as promised...I had my deposit refund within a week of our checkout. I would love to stay here again some time.
Two recommendations: Scarlett Begonia (11 W. Victoria Street #10) has the most wonderful breakfasts! And we enjoyed an excellent dinner at Cadiz (on State Street)."

A Wonderful Retreat With Great Views and Close to Activities
"We rented this home for a long weekend and wanted a nice quiet place to relax and get away. The view was gorgeous and we spent most of the time lounging on the deck and soaking up the sun and cool ocean air. The home had everything we needed and we loved cooking in the kitchen in the evenings and enjoyed eating outside on the deck. We would make the short trip into Santa Barbara or Ventura during the day to shop, explore or eat, but nothing beat coming back to the beach. We would absolutely come back again! Such an amazing home - we would highly recommend it!"
