home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I've lost count of the number of times our family has returned to Paradise Cottage over the past few years. Our kids just refer to it as "our vacation house" and don't believe us when we tell them it's not really ours! We love knowing a dish of warm brownies and lots of fresh fruit will be waiting for us when we arrive that first day, and throughout the week we are made so comfortable with the little details that always seem to be covered. Many thanks to Francesca and John for all the work they have done to make this such a cozy, beautiful cottage.

Lovely hide away in Summerland!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

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!

Lovely quaint cottage with beautiful views of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great location. Well stocked cottage

  • 5 of 5

I was happily surprized that it was bigger than the pictures made it appear. The kitchen table is small , but there is a dining room table that seats 6 comfortably.

I was decorating a wedding cake and found the kitchen to be very well stocked. I had forgotten my candy thermometer and was astonished to find one in a drawer. Yay!!

The fresh flowers were a nice touch as was the milk and fruit in the refrigerator.

We enjoyed sitting on the patio and eating breakfast. It was very private with beautiful plants.

I would definitely book Paradise Cottage again.
