Guestbook comments from the owner


The month we stayed in your house was beyond imagined. Visiting a new city and being from Brazil we appreciated that everything was clean, beautiful and as you had said it would be - no surprises is always the best .....

We will be back next year for two weeks and would love to stay in your space.

Wonderful and charmIng home .

Felt like we were staying in a charming, comfortable home--not in a rental. Thoroughly enjoyed our three-night stay. Will definitely stay here again.

Your house was really comfortable and everything your ad said it would be. We loved the comfortable beds and linens as well as the view and sunset was outstanding….

We took our daily walks to the Mission and Rose garden and thank you for all the great suggestions for restaurants and things to do…..hope to come back next year.

Great location....convenient to shops and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5


We had the best time staying in your beautiful home for six weeks……Just as your ad had said, everything was thought of and it was very comfortable and clean. We honored your "no shoe" policy, and appreciated it as that is how we are at our house. The beds and bedding were the best, as well as enjoying the sunsets while having cocktails every night……We will definitely be back next year to get out of the cold for a bit.

Great property!

My husband and I stayed in this home while we were in Santa Barbara for a wedding celebration. We shared the home with another couple. This was a fabulous location and a beautiful home. Very comfortable for downtime, spacious kitchen with modern amenities for cooking, fabulous porch with a great view. Overall an excellent vacation home!

Beautifully restored cottage home

  • 5 of 5

This lovely restored cottage was perfect for the 4 of us visiting Santa Barbara for our daughter*s college graduation weekend. Beach and nautical decor highlight this original yacht club space. The garden yard is gorgeous and access to downtown Santa Barbara is minutes away. Book it won't regret it!

sweet cottage in good location

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I spent a very peaceful weekend at this house on upper State Street in a quiet residential neighborhood. The house is charming, clean, well-maintained, private and nicely decorated. A lot of attention to detail. Ideal for a couple or two friends to relax. Recommend.
