Calm, relaxing and still invigorating.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived in this lovely home we were in another world, surrounded by gardens and trees, with chickens everywhere . Spacious, cosy home. Very clean and cared for.

Close by are shops,good restaurants and a YMCA gym( with swimming pool).

Beautiful scenery with great drives and walks/ hiking.

Owner, Peter, was welcoming and informative. A perfect host ! Even provided us with fresh eggs, oranges and persimmons, all from the gardens. Wonderful! What a treat that was!

You will love this home. We did.

Very unique property - people - and even the chickens!!!

  • 5 of 5

Peter and Beverly were the best hosts that I've come to meet in a very long time;

1) Effective and quick communication on pre-visit details (fun stuff for the kids to do, specific POIs and helpful directions that went beyond your Nav syst.

2) Personal welcome upon arrival, including a chalk board providing a nice welcome touch as well as a personally signed thank you card, Bev walked us through the home pointing out the subtleties one needs to know before settling in including fully stocked Kitchen (milk, eggs, fresh baked bread, butter, cheese etc) and goodies for our grand-kids! - if we needed more just let them know!!!

3) Follow-up to ensure everything expected was fulfilled!

These proud owners couldn't have been more thoughtful and kind - period!

The property surpassed my expectations and was actually larger than I had imagined;

1) Very large front room and dining table that accommodated ample seating including two very comfortable XL twin beds on the back wall.

2) Two very nice BRs and a large 'country' kitchen with table for 4 including connecting to a nice sitting area and the bathroom

3) Large backyard with BBQ area, large table to dine and misc comfortable seating around.

4) All of the above was very clean and maintained!

The meditation area was very unique providing lots of sitting areas, beautiful flowers and plants and those adorable bantam chickens - Billy Idol, Sammy Davis, Louise and the Nut Job were a kick! - the kids went out every morning and bonded quickly - Thank YOU Peter and Bev...this was a very good experience for us.

My girlfriends and I really enjoyed our stay. It's very close to everything. Very comfortable home with everything you need- we really enjoyed eating breakfast and dinner on the back patio. Will need to come with my son - he would love feeding the chickens in the garden. Everything really is just as described, and the hosts could not have been more thoughtful and kind. Thanks again - we loved it!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Peter and Beverly's cottage with my husband and our daughter for the Santa Barbara Half Marathon weekend. Our stay was perfect, and Peter and Beverly were the best hosts. We arrived really late/early (2am), and they had gone and set up a pack and play and a high chair for our daughter so we didn't have to; we could just come in and go to sleep. The cottage was fully stocked with everything we needed: kitchen, bathroom, toys for our daughter, etc. It was very clean and private. In the morning, we would walk around the property (which is beautiful - amazing garden!) and say hello to the chickens. Peter came out and introduced all the chickens and their dog, Max, to our baby girl. She had a great time! If you are planning a trip to the area and want a quiet place that feels like a home and not a hotel, I highly recommend staying here!
