Recent Santa Barbara reviews

  • Fun location, cute house.

    "Great location near Brewhouse and The Neighborhood Bar and Grill. We also walked to the beach and Sterns Warf every day (only a 5 min walk). Lots of fun surrounding the house, never was bored."

  • Wonderful house!

    "Having read the other reviews, they have summed this house up perfectly! The photographs really don't do it justice. It is extremely comfortable with wonderful outdoor seating areas. The kitchen is well appointed, the beds are comfortable, the neighbourhood is quiet and we loved the architecture and stylish furnishings. Margaret was excellent to work with. We were very disappointed not to be ale to stay longer. Highly recommended for beautiful Santa Barbara."

  • Comfortable and Convenient

    "Our family of six adults stayed at this property for 4 days the week before Christmas. The property was clean, well maintained, convenient and comfortable. The floor plan with open kitchen, dining room and kitchen, opening onto a patio and pool made for good flow and easy living. The master bedroom with its own bath was spacious very nice. The other two rooms were children's rooms and just adequate and had to share a bathroom accessible through a hallway. The kitchen is very spacious and well furnished with a good layout. The house has very nice landscaping and great privacy since it abuts on a large open area of fields and trees without nearby houses on that side which greatly adds to its appeal and charm. The outside jacuzzi is great and worked well. The pool was also appealing with an automatic cover. Unfortunately due to inclimate weather we did not use the pool in spite of heating it. There was a fair amount of rain which filled the cover with several inches of water. The location of the house is pretty good with easy access hiking trails, to the beach, and town as well as shopping and the highway. The house is located at the end of a dead end street so there is no traffic noise which is wonderful and the nights were very quiet. There were a few minor negatives such as lack of hair dryer, no bath towels, no toaster which the owner says will be rectified. The owner Jethro Acosta was personable and responsive and the directions for accessing and closing the house were clear and there were good recommendations for activities and restaurants included with information for the house. Overall we had a very good experience with no major negatives. We would recommend this property for a small group or family ."

    "My family of 5 stayed here this past week and I had to pry my wife from the property in order to leave. The views are unsurpassed 24x7. From the incredible master suite we were able to go to sleep and wake to the view and sound of the ocean while being treated to a roaring fire in the fireplace. The views from every single spot in this magnificent home are inspiring. The backyard was incredible for meals and s'mores at the fire pit. The music system and the kitchen were a treat. The location was central to everything and we walked to and from the home many times. We rode horses on the beach about 7 miles south. We enjoyed a sunset cruise (escorted by a pod of over 100 dolphins) after walking to the wharf. The restaurants in the area are innovative and wonderful. More than all of that is the incredible design of the interiors. The owners are professionals in real estate and design and this home is a showplace. I would recommend visiting Santa Barbara and El Amarre to anyone considering it and warn you that you will want to try to copy the incredible design sensibility of the owners if you do. From the plates (even the silverware is special, how does she find this stuff?), to the art, to the furniture, to the view from the bathtub, the owners of El Amarre have made a truly special place that guests are lucky to have the chance to experience. Go, go, go. We feel lucky we found this special place, it's responsive owners were extremely helpful, and the daily maid service was a nice touch. Did I mention you should jump on this? You will love it."
