Recent Santa Barbara reviews

  • Kathleen

    "We stayed at this property with friends and family for my 50th birthday celebration. I wholeheartedly concur with Sam's review. The villa, in a secluded and quiet area of Santa Barbara, is spacious and well appointed. Although we had plans to walk on the beach, we ended up spending the entire day lounging around the house, the pool and the jacuzzi. I came home feeling relaxed and refreshed. Perfect location for a weekend getaway. Aaron, the owner, and Coastal Hideaways were responsive to texts during our stay."

  • Wonderful, user friendly property

    "We've traveled every year to Santa Barbara for about 10 years and this is the first property we'd like to return to. There are two of us, but we rent two bedrooms because one bedroom properties tend to be too small for 8-9 nights for us. I was a little worried it would be dark inside from the photos, but the sun's arc in the winter means the kitchen and deck side of the house are flooded with light ( on sunny days) that extends into the living room. It was too chilly to use the deck, but it would be delightfully convenient and pleasant on warmer days. We loved the laser light outside for the holidays! The owners have supplied the full range and more of items that make living easy: we were gifted coffee beans (we don't have a grinder at home) and found, in addition to the coffee maker, a grinder. There are plenty of good (not plastic) dishes, cutlery, mugs that were large sizes (we tend to bring our rather than suffer tiny ones), glassware, pots and pans, etc. We like to cook and this is a full sized kitchen, unlike so many places that have no counter space or the footprint disappears if you open the dishwasher. New sponge, cutting boards, etc. Some places no longer have soap in the bathrooms (!) but shampoo, conditioner, soap, hairdryer, plenty of towels, and perhaps as important, plenty of hooks to hang towels (and jackets) abound. We didn't use the washer/dryer, which are located in the garage. The bed is a little on the soft side four us but we recognize that different people like different firmness of mattresses. The down quilt kept us warm, and the heat worked well although even in the winter, the house gets so much sun, there are few days and even evenings that it is needed. The house is on a very quiet corner, up a small hill with a cross street that isn't a through-street so the traffic is minimal. It's not the perfect location for people who like to be close to State Street or the beach, but if you have a car or are able to ride one of the eight (!) bikes in the garage, you can be there in 10 minutes. There are three upright, 3-speed comfort bikes, two 21-speed bikes (on the small but still adult side) and 3 kids' sized bikes, lots of helmets and a couple of locks. Next time we'll bring our own bike mirrors, since we find it safest to be able to see each other when riding without full turnaround. We truly appreciate the O'Sullivan's thoughtfulness in making this a comfortable home away from home, and hope to return."

  • Wonderful Place, Great Landlord

    "My wife and I reserved this wonderful and comfortable studio in S.B. for 2 weeks. We were very welcomed by the landlord who provided very useful information about the numerous thoughtful amenities within the Ocean Breeze Studio. He also went the extra mile to describe the many attractions in S.B. within reasonably close auto ride/bike ride from this well located studio. The magnificent beach access is a within a short walk and is truly a spiritual experience to see the incredible Pacific panorama from the high cliffs. Most importantly, we very sadly had to abbreviate our stay due to an unexpectedly medical issue and the landlord demonstrated his true human consideration of our hardship by pro-rating our stay which was not expected or required. Treat yourself to a rewarding and relaxing stay at this special place!"

  • What a delightful, serene location!

    "My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in the downstairs apartment of the barn and were amazed at the lovely grounds and neighborhood. The accommodation is clean and uniquely decorated. The owner easy to communicate with. A special touch are the beautiful, original, Santa Barbara beach themed paintings by the owner! My little dog and I thoroughly enjoyed walking in the neighborhood and at Santa Barbara beaches. We would plan on returning to this property."
