Beautifully appointed "penthouse" close to harbor and downtown
"My son and his family live in Goleta, and we have usually stayed in motels to be near them. However, since our last stay coincided with graduation weekend (!), we had to get creative -- and thankfully found this Affordable Penthouse in VRBO. It is beautifully decorated, including a lovely bedroom that opened onto a small porch/deck. We loved being above the streets and able to see the mountains. No more Goleta motels!!!"

"My sister and I just returned from a weekend jaunt to Santa Barbara and after looking at local hotels, we decided to check out VRBO where we found this sweet beachy cottage! It was VERY CLEAN!!! And so well equipped, with everything you could want! Kitchen is small but very efficient, beds were very comfortable!! The highlight was the giant patio balcony off the living room. It was roomy and wonderful! We ate every meal out there. The location is superior, with the marina in just two block and the Wharf a good walk but not too far. The little fish market behind Brophy Bros fish restaurant was the total find! You can get anything you want there FRESH! All in all, our stay was absolutely fabulous! We will definitely choose this property again and highly recommend it!"

"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!!"
