Great experience...we will stay in this home again!
Nice comfortable home
The location was perfect and within walking distance to all the action on State Street. The house was very clean and the beds were quite comfortable!
Mice problem. Smoke detector missing covers. Broken glass in cabinet. Broken window in living room. Spider webs in one bedroom with spiders. Cow webs in windows. Cans with garbage (Cigarette Butts) in back yard. Would love to see these problems solved.
Wonderful abode in Santa Barbara!
I just got back from my trip to Santa Barbara and had a lovely time! This home is perfectly located just a short walk from State Street, the Warf and the beach. There were 5 of us ladies who stayed at the home and were very pleased. It was just as pictured in the advertisement. Beds were comfortable and linens were clean. We enjoyed dining outside in the backyard with all of the lovely landscaping. We even had a morning yoga session!
Overall our experience was fantastic but here were our only critiques. I had read previous reviews noting that the curtains in the bedroom were not room darkening so I came prepared with my sleep mask. Room darkening curtains in the queen bedroom would be helpful. Also, there were tons of bath towels but we only found 2 beach towels. I left a message with the property manager who called me back while she was on her own vacation which was very responsive. Providing more beach towels would be good. The kitchen was well stocked but the knives need to be sharpened and the plates, bowls and mugs are wearing out and need replacement.
Overall we had a wonderful trip to Santa Barbara and I would highly recommend this home!
Cute house and convenient location
Our overall experience at this property is positive and the property manager was very attentive to our request (the lights above the stove were out and we asked that they be replaced and they were replaced that very day).
Cons: During the week the traffic is heavy starting at 7:00 am until about 10:30 pm. We are not used to traffic noise so, for us, it was a bit loud (inside the house and particularly outside). The master bedroom is on the busy street but I think the thing that was the most bothersome was the street light outside the window! The curtains need to have a blackout backing so that it is not so bright in the room at night. As far as the kitchen goes, it could use a few items: a large pot (we could not boil water for spaghetti) and a large bowl big enough to toss a salad or mix some muffins. Also, the knives needed sharpening. I might should mention that one of the bathrooms opens up into the living room...sometimes this was a little awkward.
Pros: Very clean, nice decor, beds and linens were comfortable and felt fresh and clean, back yard was pleasant and private and the gas grill was in good shape. Excellent location, close enough to walk to State Street or go the other direction to the ocean. Having a washer and dryer is big plus!
Hi Ladies!! Was a joy to welcome you. T'hanks for the comments on the home. Wish we had known about the pots/bowl situation in the kitchen. We have those items in inventory and could have brought them by during your stay. ;-( I really appreciate the heads up now and also with regard to the drapes in the bedroom. We have never slept there so your feedback is priceless.
Thanks again for staying with us. We look forward to welcoming you back!!
House was very clean, organized, and had a well stocked kitchen. The outdoor area was private and lovely! The location to the beach, restaurants, and shopping was within walking distance so a real plus!
Awww, thanks guys! Appreciate the feedback. We enjoyed hosting you all and look forward to welcoming you back.
