Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

This private, serene 3BR/2BA vacation home, affectionately called Casa del Sol, is the perfect getaway with its great outdoor areas, beautiful gardens, panoramic ocean and mountain views, and a private hot tub. Walking distance to Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens and several hiking/biking trails off of Tunnel Trail, our sunlit house is located in the foothills of Santa Barbara and has spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, coastal islands and mountain peaks. The living room has large floor to ceiling glass windows looking out to beautiful gardens, a four person hot tub, and a delightful ambiance. The combined kitchen/living room is spacious (36ft x 16ft) and has a fireplace and breathtaking mountain and ocean views. The adjacent dining area is an ideal place to watch the sunset or enjoy a family lunch. This space opens up to the back garden with outdoor dining and a gas grill. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and sliding doors which lead out to the patio and hot tub. The second and third bedrooms (queen and full) also have sliding glass doors, lots of natural light, and great views. There is also a separate home office with fax and free WiFi, but we doubt you will want to work when you’re in this paradise retreat. Please note propane is not provided for the grill and outdoor heater.

You will feel totally private in this retreat-like setting for a romantic holiday or Santa Barbara getaway. The property is located on a horseshoe street with no through traffic. The Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens are within walking distance, as are many hiking/biking trails off of Tunnel Trail. Mission Santa Barbara is only 1.5 miles away. The house is less than ten minutes from downtown Santa Barbara which is a very sophisticated, walkable town in the Spanish Colonial style with theaters, cinemas, and the type of restaurants and shops one usually finds only in large international cities.

Reviewer Comments:

The views were great. The layout of the house was very nice. The house and kitchen were well stocked with everything that was needed except for garbage bags and tissues for the bathroom. Loved the deck and all the small spaces to sit around the outside of the house. Having a hot tub with that wonderful view was a real plus. A little TLC would make the experience even better. It was hard to get out of one bedroom to the attached deck because the full length blind was inoperable. The door handle in the master came off a couple of times. There were no instructions with the television. Although the staff tried to help it was difficult to coordinate a time when I was home and available to figure out how it worked. Not a big deal.The early check in and late check out was a nice addition but it comes a little too late to change plans after they have been made. I wish I had seen the information about how to get to trails from the house. We did walk to the Botanic Gardens from the house - very easy.

Reviewer Comments:

While we had a great stay and the property was perfect... the booking experience was less than stellar. Through no fault of our own, Turnkey was entering the wrong billing zipcode when processing the final payment and my credit card kept declining. It took multiple calls, having to re-explain the situation over and over to new CS reps, having my reservation terminated and lots of frustration on my end, before the LAST rep finallllllllly figured out the issue and was able to resolve it. Ridiculous and very frustrating.

Reviewer Comments:

The home was very clean and well appointed. The views were lovely. We had 3 couples staying. The property needs air conditioning. I understand that it is not normally this warm, but it was uncomfortable all day and night. They also cut off the internet an hour before check out. We were making travel plans and the internet was no longer available not because it was not working, but because the passwords no longer worked.

Reviewer Comments:

The house looked clean but it was not clean to my standards. As soon as I got there I took my shoes off after driving for 5+ hours to get there and within an hour my feet were black. Which tells me the floor was only swept and possibly spot cleaned not mopped all over as I would have expected for a paid cleaning crew. There were also cob webs everywhere. In the rooms; the showers, places that could have been cleaned if attention to detail was involved. There was zero interaction with the owner or property manager after the reservation was made and they were paid. There were way too many rules; me as well as the other guests felt like we were in elementary school. I would not recommend this to anyone. It served the purpose that we had a place to sleep but it was not clean nor was it some place I'd want to spend a lot of time. If my stay was any longer I would have demanded a refund and cut my trip short.
