  • Perfectly Located Santa Barbara Gem

    "This lovely and colorful home was the perfect base for our stay in Santa Barbara. Clean, wonderfully furnished and perfectly appointed with anything you need, comfortable beds and multiple spaces to hang out and relax. There is parking for two cars and the home is located within two blocks of State street with a wide array of restaurants, shopping and entertainment. But if you feel like cooking in the kitchen has everything you need (including the nice touch of two water filter carafes - much needed in Santa Barbara as the tap water is awful to drink otherwise). I would highly recommend this home for a perfect base for exploring Santa Barbara."

  • Location, Location, Location

    "Christmas of 2016 at the Shoreline Retreat. This is a very large comfortable house and the key here is its location. Walking distance to parks, beaches, even the marina and wharf for longer walks. Lazy Acres up the road is an excellent market with cafe, other restaurants and shopping up the road as well. Down the road is the park, the beach, the marina, the wharf and State Street shopping and restaurants. The house itself is giant, it is perfect for large family gatherings. We had 13 people for eight nights and there were even two bedrooms to spare for more guests. It was very clean on arrival and had all the towels, linens and kitchen supplies you need. The hot tub was functional, fun and private. There is a rooftop patio with views and table and chairs. The on-demand hot water heater means hot water for everybody showering at the same time. Washer/dryer both upstairs and downstairs. Thanks for a providing a large holiday gathering place!"

  • Older place, charming, very easy to get to state street sites

    "My book club group stayed for a long weekend in June. The living room and social spaces were fantastic for a group. Two large dining tables was surprisingly very useful: one for games and the other for meals. Can't say a word against the owner who was very thoughtful and available. It was strange, however, to get a complaint from the neighbors regarding an outside string of Christmas lights. There's no way the light could have been that bothersome. Plus, the oldest member in my group is in her seventies and having a light on is kind of a safety need. The little white lights seemed like an acceptable compromise but when the owner sent a message we did switch them off. Didn't use the pool because it rained. Hot tub was eagerly anticipated but it was blown up with chemicals. I'm not very experienced with hot tubs but the chemicals made everyone cough while inside it. Kitchen supplies were really scattered but we improvised using a pie plate as a serving bowl for example. We ate out in town mostly so we might not have noticed or cared otherwise. We had to buy hand soap for the bathrooms...that was an unfortunate inconvenience when we'd been traveling all day and required the facilities only to discover no soap. We pulled out the sofa bed and the mattress cover was gross. It might have been easily overlooked by the cleaners. These are all very small complaints. Could easily have been 5 stars and I dont mean to distract from the positives. The location feels delightfully remote but it's so fast and easy to get into town. The house is breezy and quiet and definitely lulls you into relaxation. Our group of 7 had plenty of room."

  • Very comfortable home in amazing Santa Barbara location

    "Super easy access and very private and homey feeling. Great location just off the water and main shopping streets, so still quiet and neighborhood feel but close access to everything you want to do in town. Thanks again!"
