  • 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."

  • Blue Horizon is everything that was promised

    "We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Blue Horizon. The home is in very good condition and is well located in the Mesa area of Santa Barbara. When we arrived we noticed a small problem with ants in the kitchen. We saw there were ant traps and we placed them in the kitchen and the problem was gone the next day. Other than that 1 small issue we had no problems of any kind and thus never had to contact the manager about anything during our stay. We would definitely recommend this property to someone considering Santa Barbara and we would stay there again."

  • 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 ."

  • The listing was accurate in most details

    "'Meet and greet' person was not familiar with the property and provided only minimal information. Garbage cans were full upon arrival and despite daily calls were not emptied for 5 days, unhealthy, unappealing and aggravating. A 4 door Suburban (a very large car), License 5DBS218, was parked in the guest parking area and occupied 2 of the 6 available parking sites. We called management and we were told they did not know who the car belonged to, nor did they have keys to move it. Wood was not provided when we moved in. The pool heater and hot tub heater did not operate for 2 days. Management was called and was ineffective in repairs. Hand soap was available in only 1 of the 7 bathrooms on arrival and at least a minimum amount of toilet paper would have been appreciated. Based on the rental price of the property I would have expected a more seamless occupancy experience. On the plus side, the property was very comfortable, clean and well maintained. The kitchen was was well equipped with dishware, cooking utensils and pots and pans. Beds and bedding was comfortable, with an adequate number of towels. Heating was efficient and tv's worked fine. Outdoor seating area's were sufficient and comfortable. On balance, our family enjoyed the stay and I would recommend the property to a friend"
