Family wedding accommodation
The Cottages were wonderful for our son's wedding in Santa Barbara. It was convenient to all the places we were going in downtown Santa Barbara. There were 11 of us who made use of the 3 cottages. Having separate cottages allowed flexibility in the sleeping arrangements. The kitchen in the main cottage was large enough for all of us to gather and have meals.
We enjoyed playing the games that were available--giant jenga, corn hole and croquet, to name a few. Our 12 year old grandson had never played croquet and wanted to play all the time.
The polo horses were there and we enjoyed watching them from the top deck. They were a big hit.
Barb was easy to work with and very helpful. From checking on us to make sure we got in, answering questions and taking some packages to UPS for us which was closed when we were leaving.
All of my family said they really enjoyed staying at the cottages.
Great place for our annual family gathering.

Incredible Property, Amazing Location
I recently celebrated my birthday at The Cottages and the property completely exceeded all expectations. We stayed in the 4 Bedroom and the Studio and they were clean, comfortable and fit plenty of people! They have such a charm about them, too. It felt very safe with the gate, and was very close to downtown Carpintiera, as well as a short 15 minute ride to downtown Santa Barbara! The grounds are breathtaking and having horses all around you is such a treat! In the morning, we watched several of the horses being warmed up from the deck with our coffee and it was AMAZING! Highly, highly recommend this place for rentals!!
This is how you check out of the real world
Waking up to beautiful horses getting their workouts, sunshine and the Ocean breeze. Beautiful place all around.
Wonderful Property for a Family Gathering
My family had such a great experience at this location. The owner and groundskeeper were extremely helpful. There was plenty of space in the 3 cottages and the division of the property allowed for creative groupings based on bedtimes (a cottage was devoted to families with little ones in order to have a quiet space for naps and early bedtime). The grounds were so beautiful and the decor inside the cottages was a little quirky and odd but added to the fun whimsical experience of the whole stay. The outdoor games and huge lawn were a major source of fun for the kids. The multiple kitchens were great for meal preparation. The outdoor lighting was just perfect. The proximity to the beach was a fantastic bonus that we did not plan on having (approximately 1 mile from Loon Point Beach access). My whole family cannot stop talking about how much they all loved the weekend and already asking when we can return. I highly recommend this property!
Had our dream wedding at the beautiful Cottages!
My fiancé and I found this place on VRBO when looking for a venue for our wedding. We met Barb and Neil and fell in love with the property, home, location and owners. Our family was able to stay with us on the property for two full days prior to the wedding and a day following. This allowed us to have our dream DIY wedding at the Cottages at Polo Run with bringing in everything ourselves. We had about 200 guests, food truck, full dance floor and large tent for all of our guests which we brought in through vendors. Our ceremony and reception were held on the open field and we were able to run over to the beach for photos at sunset. The place was gorgeous and so easy to host a large party at. Barb and Neil were so helpful and a blessing to work with. Would highly recommend staying here or hosting a party/wedding/family reunion here. Our family now hopes to come back for a family reunion because we enjoyed our stay so much! Thank you Barb and Neil for allowing us to enjoy our special day at your beautiful home.
