Spacious & secluded

My second stay at "The Palace". Spacious studio has nice kitchen and looks out over a desert garden. Unit is separate from the main house. Loved staying here and will come again.

By far, this was one of the best places I have ever stayed for a quiet retreat...great location (just outside of Santa Barbara, yet close enough to enjoy downtown at night). Great hiking in the Foothill Preserve with entrance right down the street. Convenient place to park my car and all the amenities you need inside a very clean, charming, quiet, private cottage. Could not have been more pleased...I'll stay here again next year...and by the way, I'm pretty picky.

Lovely garden setting!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a relaxing, comfortable stay at the Palace Studio Apt. which overlooks a peaceful and beautiful garden. Very quiet except for the pleasing sound of birds. The bed was very comfortable and we slept great. The Palace has everything you need to eat in, and is just a few minutes to town if you enjoy eating out. We hope to return soon.

Wow. Amazing.

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing. What a beautiful location and the guesthouse is perfectly arranged. The bed is very cozy and all of the amenities are very nice.

You are only a short drive from everything you need in Santa Barbara from the great restaurants to beautiful hikes.

I give this my highest recommendation and will be staying here again when we come back.
