Nice place in lovely quiet location
Nice big house in a lovely quiet location with great view. Owner Craig is friendly and happy to help if needed. Pool was lovely and nice sun deck. Have to be honest and say the property needs a little tlc especially in bathrooms and kitchen and patio door still does not lock. Spoke to Craig and he assured it was a safe area and hadn’t had a problem in 20 years! Was a bit unsure at first but we did not have any problems because of it during our stay and did feel safe as very nice neighbourhood. It is about 10 mins from everything you need - beach and supermarkets and a great restaurant ( The Boat House) which does amazing fish dishes - would definitely recommend it but must book!! As a previous (unhappy review) stated the pool man and gardener did come without us having to let them in but is the same with every VRBO property that we have stayed at! Bed was very comfortable but can’t say the same for the pillows! Would have been nice to have a tv in bedrooms, as only one in the property but none of the above ruined our stay, as we had a lovely time and thoroughly enjoyed our time at the property.
The very first think I do is to introduce myself, provide my cell phone for any problems and ask that the guests either call me or text. There were 2 other (completely different) pillow sets, but never heard that this was a problem. I also have another TV in the back, but wasn’t asked about it. There’s a property manager nearby for any of these issues. You just have to ask . .
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.
