Why Betsy Kehoe chose Oak Park

This is an ideal location within walking distance of the heart of Santa Barbara and all the State Street Activities. Yet the Apartment is in a quiet and tranquil neighborhood. You are two blocks from the famous McConnell's Ice Cream Shop for those late night urges and the awesome Cajun Kitchen where you can have two eggs sunny side up on a large bowl of Jambalaya!

                                                          Karen T.

                                                          Great location walkable to State St. with all the amazing restaurants and shopping. Attentive hosts, would stay there again

                                                          Lovely garage apartment with everything you need in a great neighborhood.

                                                          The apartment is lovely and has everything you need. Very comfortable bed & pillows and the apartment has plenty of room with a cute little porch to enjoy the great weather. It is well named as "charming" and well located. I would have given it 5 stars but the construction next door was loud and the spin cycle on the washing machine is also very loud early in the morning. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Santa Barbara was wonderful!!

                                                          Owner's Response:


                                                          So sorry about your experience with the construction next door. We have no control over what our neighbors are building. Wouldn't you know it, they finished the use of the heavy equipment the day you departed. Thank you for your feed back on the washing machine. That IS something under our control, and now that I know you were able to hear it, we will change the time of day we run it.

                                                          Very helpful feedback.

                                                          Best Regards,

                                                          Betsy and Pat

                                                          Perfect Cottage

                                                          Travis E.Brea, CA

                                                          This was the perfect cottage for a nice long weekend getaway. It's quiet, private, well furnished, and very comfortable. The location is great too and allowed us to easily walk to nearby shops and restaurants on State Street. The owner was easy to work with and was very accommodating. Would love to stay here again sometime in the future.

                                                          Great location! Great cottage! Great everything!

                                                          Ryan B.Nashville, TN

                                                          We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage. When we arrived, we were surprised by how secluded the back location was, and charmed by the entrance and the interior decorations. There was plenty of room for the two of us. We were celebrating our engagement and the hosts had a complimentary bottle of champagne in the fridge for us with a very nice note. We were blown away! The kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfast and we could have cooked full dinners there too, but Santa Barbara had too many wonderful restaurant options for us to pass up (and Betsy gave us great recommendations). The location is perfect. We would walk to State street for dinner, drinks, farmers market, etc. We also had very short drives to the foothills for hiking. The funk zone is either a far walk or a very short drive. There was no problem parking our rental car on the street. We did not rent bikes in town, but you could get anywhere with a bike from here (we did bike through the wineries in Ballard Canyon with I Bike Santa Barbara and highly recommend it).

                                                          There were no cons to staying here! It was perfect.

                                                          Fabulous apartment! Smart looking, great location and WONDERFUL hosts!

                                                          Christine S.

                                                          Beautiful interior design. Very quiet and private. Every amenity. 2 large TVs with all the channels. Well appointed kitchen with Subzero refrigerator. Windows on all 4 exposures for perfect daylight. (There are window coverings and an outside shade to control the sunlight desired.) Charming porch at the entry with settee and chairs to enjoy the outdoors. Large comfortable L sofa with soft, good looking fabric and the greatest pillows on the bed for sleeping. Absolutely safe neighborhood and an electric gate restricts only your entrance to the apartment. I can't say enough good about this property. Best of all are the gracious and considerate hosts! I hated to leave!

                                                          Charming indeed

                                                          Let this be an echo of all the other Charming Cottage 5 star reviews.
