  • Wonderful Stay

    "My family and I stayed at the Hobbit House in Santa Barbara between Christmas and New Years and had a wonderful time. The Hobbit House is appropriately named! It was clean, stocked with everything we needed – paddle board, surfboards, barbecue, plenty of blankets and towels, we only needed to bring groceries. It’s small for a family of four and slightly funky but is absolutely perfect! Right on the beach, nice deck, full kitchen and fireplace. The nice surprise was the Japanese soaking tub. We loved it and can’t wait to go back."

  • A gem but with some flaws.

    "Had an overall enjoyable stay. There are many positives but a few negatives too which took the edge of the overall experience. First off this is a wonderfully unique and special property that the owner has clearly put a lot of effort into. It is well-equipped and adequately furnished. It is located in a very nice leafy neighborhood next to a creek. We found it very convenient to drive to all destinations in the area. The parking in the driveway is a little tricky as other people mentioned. It is located on a corner so care is required. There is a mirror located across the street to help with visibility. After 1 day we got used to it and it really wasn't a huge deal. If you do have a large full-size SUV you may have more problems as the driveway in front of the garage is not very long. Now the negatives. There were 2 negatives, upkeep and cleaning. The property seemed to lack a bit of upkeep and maintenance. The lights at the front gate and door both seem to out. It is very dark out there and trying to unload luggage and get the key in the door becomes a problem with no light. Lots of leaves/debris on the patio. An old oven rack just randomly lying on the patio. The indoor plant was half dead when we walked in with dead leaves all over the floor. Some power outlet covers and switches weren't secured to the wall fully. Master bedroom needs a window treatment as someone else noted. It could also use a second nightstand. Onto cleaning. This property is not professionally cleaned between guests. At the front door we were inexplicably greeted with 2 bags of trash sitting outside. In the bathroom we then said hello to what looked like a used towel hanging over the shower door. The are a lot of cobwebs in the nooks and crannies. The remaining bedding and towels were clean, no complaints there. In general the property is clean, but just not professionally clean. The TV with Netflix and Amazon was fine after we figured out how to connect the TV to the Wi-Fi. But afterwards the Amazon app insisted on doing an upgrade after which it wanted credentials which we didn't have. So no more Amazon at that point. To sum it up a great property in a super location that is somewhat let down by upkeep and cleaning, otherwise it would score highly."

  • Miramar Beach home was unique!

    "It truly is a boat house--very much resembling a boat. Not for everyone, but being boat owners it was perfect for us. Small, but well appointed with unique features like the stone shower in the bedroom, square commode, beautiful wood details and much beach and boat decor. The location is perfect--on the beach and close to shopping, dining out (Cava was fabulous), and downtown Santa Barbara. However, on the railroad tracks and frequent trains noisily go by. Also, no dishwasher. I understand the water issue, but not very sanitary as water does not get hot enough to kill germs. Plus one must run the water a long time in the kitchen to get that "hot" water. Loved the deck--especially as the dining room--the view and wave sound spectacular. Great access to the beach and toys for play provided. I am not sure I would call the listing totally accurate, but worth taking the chance. We loved it."

  • The perfect Santa Barbara experience

    "We booked Spring House because we were attending a wedding at the Four Seasons, and we were traveling with children. The location was perfect - easy walk or short drive to the hotel and beach, easy access to attractions (the kids loved the zoo!), close to shopping and dining in Montecito, and a quick drive or Uber to State Street. We all had plenty of room, both inside and outside. We enjoyed the peaceful gardens and the spacious and well decorated interior spaces. The house is so comfortable that we all felt at home right away."
