Best Stay in SB
"We couldn't have walked away happier from this experience. Not only was the home beautiful, but the furnishing and amenities made it one of the most comfortable stays we've ever had from an online rental. And there are probably only a handful of other homes in the entire Santa Barbara area with that kind of view. The pictures of the sunset look too good to be true, but I assure you, that is really what its like.
Location is fantastic. Just minutes away from State street, the pier, and a couple of great hikes. But the highlight was driving just 5 minutes north to the off-leash dog park on the beach!
I could not recommend this place more. Great place to relax and question why you dont live in santa barbara all year"

"This house is very well appointed, and well set up with quality furnishings, appliances, linens, and other supplies. The owner and manager truly care that you have a top notch experience when you stay in this home, and it shows.
Jill is a wonderful and very responsive and reasonable manager - my wife wrote some follow up detail questions to her the day before we left to figure if we needed to pack a few additional things and received a quick response.
The house is very well taken care of - although pets are allowed, it is kept immaculate, and our furry fellow was well behaved and enjoyed the space. Kitchen is beautiful with great amenities including a wine cooler. Spectacular bathrooms, plenty of good linens, and bath supplies. Beds are exceptional but they are high. Keep that in mind if you want to bring kids or elderly as that might not suit them well.
Speaking of height, also n.b. that the ceiling fans can seem a bit low. I know this sounds nitpicky but, if you're a tall person and the fans are running, just watch out before you stick your arms up.
The yards are immaculate, and great quality patio furniture and we loved the outdoor shower before coming in from the beach - a great way to keep sand out of the house.
Location is great. This is a quiet residential neighborhood with a nice mix of older and newer homes - this one is clearly newer. Short walk to the beach, dog park, downhill to the larger beach, and a 5 minute drive to downtown. What more could we ask?
Local recommendation: Breakfast at Hendry's Boathouse (5 minutes away down cliff drive, away from DT) is a great place to start your morning."

"We had a wonderful time at this darling 3 bedroom SB getaway. Very spacious yard, complete with a spa (wish we had time to try it out!), lots of grassy area, eating area and convenient outside "buffet" counter to serve everyone and free up kitchen space. The kitchen is very well appointed with lots of utensils, gadgets, coffee set up, huge frig and lower freezer drawer. The downstairs bathroom is a jack and jill set-up between the two downstairs rooms. Rooms are very comfortable, but the bathroom is quite small and "cozy". The upstairs suite is gigantic! My in-laws appreciated that spacious area - it has a small balcony off the bedroom, a full-sized tub, large bathroom and separate shower area. There are lots of closets throughout, including a full pantry in the kitchen to store dry goods. Both my parents and in-laws appreciated the relaxed house lay-out - both liked how comfortable it was to stay in a B&B style home rather than spread apart in separate hotel rooms. One word of caution: the house rules are very specific regarding the tidiness of the home, but keeping within those details, it is well worth the stay! Very happy with the location, the appearance, the ample parking on the driveway and on the street. Best part? VERY quiet at night - no street noise at all. I didn't check mark recommending this location for families with small children, only because of the steep stairs and small downstairs bath - though the yard certainly is certainly perfect for young ones to run around! Having lived in Santa Barbara many years ago, I found this house to be a lovely example of the charming older homes that can be found throughout this city. Very nice overall and would highly recommend to others."

"We loved staying at the Barker Beach House. Perfect location in downtown; walking distance to the beach; and a clean, adorable and very well-appointed house! We really enjoyed walking right into downtown..to the very close grocery & drug stores, coffee spots, restaurants, fun shops, etc! We also really enjoyed cruising all around town on the beach cruisers they provided. The enclosed backyard was great for playing games (they provided), dining and storing our boards. Bill and Denise seemed to think of everything that might be needed on a vacation. We will definitely stay again!!"
