Beautiful Weekend Retreat
I recently returned from a weekend in Santa Barbara and stayed at this beautiful rental. I highly recommend it for anyone visiting the area. The house is centrally located within easy access to Highway One and a short drive to all of the places of interest in the Santa Barbara area. A few minutes away are major supermarkets, drug stores, and a number of restaurants. Most importantly the house is perfectly situated in the hilly section of Goleta and has spectacular views of the area including the Pacific Ocean and the Channel Islands in the distance. It was a particularly hot weekend and we made great use of the pool. For the cool evenings, there is a hot tub. The patio and deck have a number of places to sit and relax. Inside, the house is spacious and nicely decorated with comfortable furniture. The big windows let in a lot of light. The kitchen is large and has all of the things someone would need if you decide to eat at home. Craig, the owner, was very easy to work with and accommodating. I would love to return to this vacation home soon for another weekend getaway!
It was a beautiful house with a great backyard. The view was spectacular from the deck! We couldn't get our 4-year old granddaughter out of the pool! The owner was very responsive to any question we had from the time we booked to the time we left. If we ever had the good fortune of returning to Santa Barbara, I wouldn't hesitate to book this house again.
Beautiful, relaxing, wonderful!
An excellent vacation spot! We were a party of 4 adults and 3 children ages 1, 4 and 6. The house was very quiet, clean, comfortable and set up perfectly. Adults and children alike enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and relaxing on the deck. We ate our meals outside, soaking up the amazing view. Craig, our host, was exceptionally thoughtful and made sure our visit was everything we hoped for. We will definitely be back.
What a view
We were a family of 6 adults and had a wonderful time. The views were stunning. Very convenient to Santa Barbara downtown and highway 101. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. Craig was very easy to communicate with when we had questions before our arrival. He also made sure we were very comfortable once we arrived. Would recommend this home to anyone. We really enjoyed the hot tub after a day of hiking. No complaints at all.
No lock on door, insecure house, shabby property
We booked our stay in Santa Barbara in January, and spent 7 months looking forward to a restful stay at a quiet house - alternating between beach and private pool, hot tub to allow our kids the optimal time in the water. The pictures show a 1980s decor, but really looked well kept and with all 5 star ratings were were confident. Upon arrival, we were disappointed to find a property that was shabby and a run down, the pictures did not show the true state of things. The biggest concern was the lack of security - the door from the house onto the pool patio did not approximate, did not have a lock and was closed with 2 bungee cords! There is a gate behind the house,patio that does not approximate or lock and a gate leading to the side of the garage/front of house that was worn and also didn't approximate well. In fact, on the last morning my daughter was swimming in the pool for the last time when the pool guy walked right in through that door and started cleaning the pool - ousting her. After he finished, we were told to stay out of the pool for several hours. 4 nights of seven we were awakend with a random noise of something falling in the house or unknown alarm being set off, we could never tell what this was from. 1/3 of the house (including living space) was locked off from us so we couldn't investigate completely. The owner did come back to the home on Thurs am (we stayed Sat to Sat) to investigate the door, he approximated it but still no lock. He was also back in the house Friday when we were out (though we were not told he would be). This stay was only our second VRBO experience, but may be our last if we cannot be assured of the quality of the booking and the safety of the residence.
Just astounded to have received this inane review. This came just 10 days receiving a wonderful review (our normal 4.5-5 stars). Our home is set toward the top of a hill in a very quiet residential area. Its a dead end street, so no traffic at all and very safe. The carpets are professionally shampooed every 4 weeks, professionally cleaned each week. The previous renter seems to have broken the lock on the sliding glass doors to the pool from the family room and THAT seems to be the main issue in this review. After they broke it, they used a bungee cord to secure it. This certainly isn't how I run my house. The gate to the back pool area can be locked from the inside. This renter chose not to (I don't usually, but it can be locked). The pool service company came the same time they do every week to clean the pool. I have no idea why this is upsetting. We WANT a clean pool. After they clean it, they put chlorine in and you want to give it a couple of hours to dissipate. As many VRBO home, we have one room (a small den) locked off with our personal and valuable pieces. This only left the Family Room, Living Room, 4 bedroom and the outside Gazebo as living area (approx. 2300 sq. feet). Again, I don't understand why this was upsetting, but as they said, they don't normally rent on VRBO. You will find, on every other review, a comment on how attentive I am to my guests. I always reach out and provide my direct Cell number for call or texts and encourage people to contact me if anything is wrong and I ALWAYS make sure to set up a time, if I need to come to the house. Other than the door to the pool, this renter never complained to me about anything. This review is just bizarre. I'd recommend viewing ALL the reviews please. Sometimes you just have a strange group and we certainly had one here.
Great space for a family vacation
We enjoyed the large floorplan and the indoor/outdoor living spaces in our vacation to Santa Barbara. We can't wait to come back and do it again.
