  • Perfect!!

    "My husband and I have stayed in the VRBO apartment rental 15620 on two occasions this year (2016); 12 days in June and 9 days in November. We have been so pleased with this apartment. We love that it is on the third floor (top floor) and includes a spacious, outside porch just outside of the kitchen. What a great way to relax! (There is no elevator if that is a consideration, but the stairways are wide enough to comfortably accommodate plenty of room while carrying a suitcase). The apartment is very comfortable with considerable window coverage so we can see the immediate area and skyline (mountains in the background!). The apartment is very quiet. It is also very well equipped with all you need for any length of stay. The kitchen area is not large, but much cabinet storage for everything you need for any kind of cooking. There is also an outside grill on the porch. There is a dishwasher and clothes washer and dryer just outside the kitchen; That is a terrific treat! The living space is very comfortable and the bathroom is spacious and modern. The building location is perfect; right in town, a few blocks from the beach and waterfront. We walked everywhere. We explored the side streets and you can get to the Main Street through the city in just a few blocks, as "shortcuts" on various streets are easy to find; and restaurants of all tastes are everywhere and very accessible. If walking is not what you want, public buses are easily accessible. We will be making yearly trips to visit family in Santa Barbara and hope this apartment is available each time."

  • 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."

  • Comfortable, eclectic home

    "Some amazing art on the walls! Despite the staircase our 1 and 3 year old grandsons managed well. They stayed out of the multiple shelves and enjoyed the large den as a play space. Beds were comfortable. The weather was a little chilly for outside living (large open yard) but the adults enjoyed one evening of patio ping pong. The landscaping is a marvel, especially for a Midwesterner. Plenty of cookery items (and cookbooks galore) if you want to cook--but it is Santa Barbara. (My grown children recommend the Mesa Verde vegetarian restaurant.) Overall, a very pleasant stay."

  • The Perfect Girls Weekend

    "Perfect weekend with my Bunko girls. As soon as we arrived on Fri, we opened all the windows and didn't close them until we left on Sunday. We visited, cooked, ate, drank, sat in the spa and laughed for two whole days!"
