                                                    Lovely Cottage!

                                                    Kathleen P.

                                                    We've stayed at Paradise Cottage before. It's a lovely cottage! It's so quiet yet so accessible to 101.

                                                    Comfortable, cozy, and convenient!

                                                    Laura S.

                                                    This house is great. The whole process was so easy, the owner communicates all you need to know clearly and quickly. We loved having our morning coffee and evening wine on the patio. It's a great location for exploring Santa Barbara and various vineyards. This is an annual trip we do and this house has been our favorite so far.

                                                    Truly Paradise

                                                    Dave G.Laguna Niguel, CA USA

                                                    I would give the cottage 10 stars if I could! Everything was exactly as see in the pictures and lots of welcome surprises and extras to make our stay special! Francesca went above and beyond! We will be back!

                                                    Lovely hide away in Summerland!

                                                    Darlene C.

                                                    It was two adults and two dogs that stayed at this property for five days, four nights. We had a wonderful, relaxing time in Paradise Cottage. The house was clean, cozy and well stocked with all the basic amenities and some extras. There were fresh flowers, candles, books, movies and some yummy snacks and drinks. We plan to visit again!

                                                    My family of four plus our dog really enjoyed this home. The home is well taken care of and is incredibly well stocked - from some groceries to shampoo and conditioner to laundry supplies. Also a great location to access Santa Barbara and Carpinteria. We would definitely stay here again!

                                                    The cottage is located up on the hill in the town of Summerland. Close by are lovely shops and restaurants, and just a short drive from the Santa Barbara area. The cottage is decorated with a coastal cottage theme, with stunning views of the ocean. A perfect stay for those visiting the Santa Barbara area.
