About Vicki

My husband and I met in Santa Barbara and have raised our family here. We live in a wonderful area that is rural but close to downtown, the beach and the foothills. We love our home and have a couple of acres where we use to keep our horses and, have plenty of room to keep our 2 Australian shepherds happy. We have a great little guest cottage on the property as well and thought it would be fun to share it with people traveling to and through SB that have dogs, although, we think people with out animals will love it as well.

Vicki purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Vicki chose County Property

Why not ;)

What makes this cottage unique

The best part about our property is the peace, location and being able to have a safe place for pets. We are less than 5 minutes away from one of the only off leash dog beaches in Santa Barbara. The hiking trails in the foothills are all with in minutes from out property, as well. Downtown Santa Barbara, where all the theaters, shopping and restaurants are also just minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A lovely and comfortable space we look forward to staying at again.

  • 5 of 5

Vicki was wonderful at every step, and she has created an inviting space that is remarkably pleasant and comfortable. It is hard to put into words how nice it was to stay here. The cottage is beautiful, immaculately clean, and charming without being fussy. The location is great, too. We were on a trip to visit our son who recently started college at UCSB. Being able to bring our family dog and then prepare meals and eat at the cottage made it really wonderful for our family. We already plan to come again!

Perfect way to start/end the day

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous property! My husband and I fully enjoyed our stay. Vicki is lovely and the cottage feels like a home away from home. The deck is where we watched sunrises every morning and the whole cottage just has an influence of peace around it. Our pup lived how close we were to the dog beach and the fact that all the little things have been thought of makes this place perfection.... from fluffy bath towels, to great coffee, to dog towels to help clean up the pup after a long day. This is our new go to spot in Santa Barbara!!!!

The cottage was absolutely perfect. It was clean and cozy.. Vicki went above and beyond. She called and ordered the Mayweather fight so my husband and son wouldn't miss it while traveling.... I will say there is no TV in the bedroom... so if you like to lay and veg, its not there.... but honestly... we were to tired to really care... I only wish we could have stayed longer... Thank you so much... we had a wonderful visit.

Better than pictured!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was the perfect retreat for a ladies' getaway! Vicki thought of everything...even ziplock baggies. The bed and pullout sofa were both comfy, linens were nice, and the cottage was clean. I was concerned that, since dogs are allowed, the place might smell a bit or not be need to worry!! It was immaculate....I wish my own home were this clean. The location is superb and very private. It was so much more lovely than the pictures portray. Quite the find! I hope to return many more times!!

A beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Vicki's cottage was just fantastic. The perfect set up for both me and my little dog, with an enclosed yard for her to wander in. Great views from the deck combined with a fully appointed cottage were exactly what I was looking for. I would highly recommend this cottage!
