Perfect Home Away from Home
"My Aunt was visiting from out of town and our family decided to enjoy some time in Santa Barbara to do some wine tasting and sight-seeing. The pictures in the listing looked great so we decided to book this home. What can I say that hasn't been said in the previous 5 star reviews? The home was amazing, and the already beautiful pictures didn't do this place justice. Everything about the home, from the furniture to the outdoor landscaping was picturesque. We all felt right at home as the property was very inviting and cozy. The homeowner deserves as 5 star rating also, as she made sure all of our concerns were taken care of. She was friendly, easily accessible, and anticipated all of our needs. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable experience in Montecito/Santa Barbara. We will definitely return in the future."

We miss the view that makes you feel you're in Tuscany, the sound of church bells and windchimes
"Staying at Brenda's house was a treat. We felt so lucky to be allowed to stay there and honoured that she would trust us with her home, a very special place.
First of all, the view of Santa Barbara with it's white stucco buildings and terracotta roofs, all the way to the Pacific Ocean is amazing. Because the house is located on a hill, you get to see all of this from every room on the first floor. It is so incredibly breath taking day and night and you never tire of it. Combined with the sound of church bells and wind chimes we couldn't help but feel relaxed (especially when our kids were asleep!).
The house itself is super comfortable and has everything you need to feel right at home. You can tell that a lot of care and thought has gone into it with it's double glazed windows, beautiful wooden floors, time-operated extractor fan in the main bathroom, an electric toilet/bidet also in the main bathroom, and a well laid out gourmet kitchen (loved the island bench with second sink!). Also, most shops and restaurants are only a few minuted drive so you are reasonably central.
Brenda herself is such a warm and thoughtful person. She helped us to find a babysitter so that we could go out and enjoy a meal without the kids.
We highly recommend this house and miss it already!"

"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!"

"My family of four and small dog found our home away from home. Close enough to the beach to check the surf, walk to the harbor and Brophy Bros. and kayaking adventure. At first the photos seemed it was dated, but the home is very clean, nostalgic, and super comfortable. My two boys enjoyed the pool everyday while my hubby and I had a glass of wine on the big patio. I was even able to stream a workout on my computer on that patio! Cozy for a family but large enough to entertain some friends I had grown up with while there in SB. Attentive owner and neighbors. We absolutely hope to visit this home again and would recommend"
