Recent Santa Barbara reviews

  • Tebo; We would highly recommend.

    "Unique and very well located. We were in unit # 2 which is nicely furnished and comfortable with nice appliances. Three interesting features are the rooftop garden which contains numerous vertical hydroponic growing containers, the train station which is located just about one block away and the Mission Creek watershed canal which runs right below the unit's windows and small deck. Interestingly, the channel seems to experience a reverse flow at times which we could only imagine would be the high tides. If so, that phenomenon should be quite dramatic during stormy weather such as SB is presently experiencing. The rooftop deck should be a very nice attraction during sunny weather which we unfortunately did not get much of curing our stay. The train station is charming, perhaps inviting guests to explore nearby areas. A connecting bridge is under construction which should connect to the station from the end of the street. The sound of the trains two-three times daily lends to the atmosphere rather than being any problem. As to the location, it is fabulous. The beach is only a couple blocks' walk away as is the harbor and pier while State Street, which leads into town is also nearby and a nice walk. The area around the Gardens contains numerous examples of gorgeous architecture from Santa Barbara's past. The only drawbacks we found with the unit/Chapala Gardens were: The shower is very small; lighting is not very good and a couple of bulbs were out; We were there when the hydroponic units on the roof were being moved about for some time, creating quite a bit of noise right above our heads; One day while we were out walking, the property owner let himself in to repair the Laser Disk player without notifying us and was in the unit when we returned (we would have preferred he had called us or left a note). All in all, we would highly recommend Chapala Gardens."

  • Wonderful property, stellar location

    "My company had our annual retreat here, and it was perfect. They had enough beds for all 9 adults and the home is beautifully appointed, and just a short drive or Uber ride to downtown Santa Barbara. The owner, Byria, was wonderful and made the entire process very easy and professional. One thing to note is that the property doesn't have a hot tub, as noted in the listing, it has a large jetted tub in the master bathroom."

  • Beautiful inside and out

    "Our stay was excellent. We were in walking distance to everywhere and the little trolley took us everywhere else. I loved the kitchen and balcony. The decor inside made me feel like I was at home. Not the sanitary feel of a hotel room. Even the maintenance man who asked if it was OK for him to use his blower was super nice. It was like we knew eachother. This beautiful place is going to be a regular stop in the future!"
