Delightful Santa Barbara Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 5 nights in this one-of-a-kind cottage on a hill just above the historic Santa Barbara Mission. The cottage had one bedroom and one bath plus full kitchen and a living/dining room with a gas fireplace. It also has two separate patios surrounded by luscious gardens and a gas grill. The cottage was well equipped; it had everything we needed. The neighborhood is peacful with little traffic and lots of nice walks. Parking is plentiful. You do need a car to stay here, as it is 20+ minutes to walk to downtown or grocery stores. We definitely plan to renturn for a longer stay next year and would highly recommend this cottage to friends and family. It's a real gem! The owners live next door and are very helpful, but you won't know they are there unless you need them.

Our kind of place.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here several times and enjoyed each time as much as the first. It is a perfect fit for a couple that enjoy the ambience of the area. Well furnished and parking is off the street with its own area. The owners John and Eileen are very nice and a pleasure to know.

Perfect place for two!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this wonderful and comfortable cottage for two people. There is a lovely remodeled kitchen, sunny back and side patios with flowers and avocado trees. Private and quiet. The owners' home is on the property and they are delightful and helpful hosts. It is walking distance to the Mission and Rose Garden. We had a wonderful time and hope to return many times!

Midwestern visitor

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this very private cottage on two different occasions for a month each time, and each visit was a pleasure. The owners are very accommodating and were very respectful of guest privacy. They were very responsive on the rare maintenance issues. The area is one of the nicest in Santa Barbara and the nearby streets are perfect for walking with great coastal views along the way. There is a wonderful private patio and the yard is enclosed by tasteful landscaping. The kitchen was well equipped. I would never consider another rental as long as this one is available.

Gepflegtes Landhaus mit top Ausstattung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zu zweit acht Tage in dem perfekt ausgestatteten und geräumigen Landhaus verbracht. Zur Ausstattung:

Küche: alles was man braucht. Inklusive Gasherd und Backröhre und allen üblichen Küchengeräten. Geräumiger Kühlschrank.

Hauptraum: Fernseher, WLAN-Router und schnelles Internet, Esstisch, gemütliches Sofa.

Schlafzimmer: großes Bett und diverse Schränke für Kleidung und Schuhe.

Bad: sieht auf den Bildern etwas dunkel aus, ist aber hell, sauber und geräumig.

Es gibt auch einen Abstellraum, den wir für die Koffer verwendet haben. Dort ist auch nochmal ein Schrank.

Nicht zu vergessen, die Veranda mit Sonnenschirm, auf der man bei Sonnenaufgang in Ruhe frühstücken kann.

Das Haus hat eine separate Auffahrt und man kann direkt vor der Eingangstür parken. Sehr praktisch für Einkäufe!

Die Umgebung ist sehr ruhig und gepflegt. Wenig Verkehr. Der botanische Garten Santa Barbaras und das Naturhistorische Museum sind wie die Mission leicht zu Fuß erreichbar.

John ist ein guter Gastgeber, der viele Tipps zur Umgebung parat hat. Uns hat es an nichts gefehlt, aber ich bezweifle nicht, dass er Fehlendes umgehend besorgt hätte.

Wer Santa Barbara und seinen Flair erleben will hat mit diesem private Cottage einen guten Ausgangpunkt!
