"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!!"

"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"

"We stayed at the Annex for a long weekend, and couldn't have asked for a better spot. The house was spotless and very cozy and the location couldn't be beat. We were literally able to park our car when we got there and not get in it again until it was time to leave. We could walk to tons of restaurants, bars and the beach, and even the grocery store was only a block and a half away. The furniture and beds were very comfortable, and there were even hotel-like perks like plush bathrobes and tons of pillows on the bed. The outdoor space is great too, and we were able have drinks and even nap undisturbed in the backyard.
The hostess was very friendly and helpful. We were traveling with a 5-month old baby and a 55 lb. dog, and she was very accommodating for both. She is clearly an animal lover, and we very much appreciated being able to stay someplace that was so pet-friendly. She gave us restaurant and bar recommendations, as well as places where we could take to the dog and good activities for the baby. We would absolutely stay here again, as it made our weekend very enjoyable and relaxing."
