Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous time at this house. It's a sensational place - beautifully decorated and with great taste. The house is wonderfully located across the road from the beach and the main bedroom has direct views over the ocean. We especially valued the privacy of the main bedroom (on the upper floor) with two other bedrooms on the ground floor. There are several outdoor seating areas - at the front of the house (with folding patio doors to the living room) and in a private rear yard with hot tub. We used the Apple TV which is located throughout the house. It was especially useful to have access to bikes - the house is an easy cycle to downtown and this is by far the best way of getting around the exquisite community of Santa Barbara. I'm sure Jeff would have been very helpful if we needed to contact him - but we didn't. The house worked perfectly for us, without a hiccup. Recommended without hesitation.

Fabulous home in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent two months in beautiful Santa Barbara at this lovely home on Shoreline Drive, across the street from the park and ocean. My husband really enjoyed the activity out in the front! Plus the view to the ocean was great. The home was really attractive (angles in the house were very interesting) and extremely comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked, the bed linens were high quality, and there were plenty of towels. We had everything we needed, and while we didn't meet the owner, Jeff was extremely quick to respond to any question or concern. We loved living in this home for two months and hope to return again next year.

Idyllic ocean view cottage with wonderful amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully appointed. The location was perfect for easy access to outdoor activities.and great local eateries. We were comfortable and felt like we were at home. I've been to Santa Barbra many times and this was by far my favorite place to stay.

Great view, pristine home, had everything we needed, great view and steps away from surfing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 3 kids and myself stayed a week and truly enjoyed the home! The location was so perfect! Steps away from the beach to go surfing, minutes away from downtown! Loved the porch where we would hang out and drink wine in the late afternoons... Each and every room was perfect and in every little corner or door where instructions on EVERYTHING about the home. I always felt at home there. Thanks for a fantastic stay!

Amazing Home & Host

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded all of our expectations. From the beautiful decor to the incredible amenities, this house has IT ALL! We were six adults and one child and had more than enough room to relax and enjoy the beautiful ocean views and incredible backyard space. I cannot recommend this house enough and Jeff was the perfect host. 5-stars and we can't wait to stay again!
