  • Enjoyable stay

    "My wife and I greatly enjoyed our stay at our hosts home. The location and the property was lovely and the views great. Our host provided a nice welcome with directions and information on how best to get around, great places to eat, and local events. The property was clean and well maintained and just far enough out of town to be to feel rural. We had a great time and would stay again. Greg and Susie Zimmerman Fairbanks, Alaska"

  • Great Santa Barbara Home!

    "6 family members stayed in this home for the weekend while attending a wedding. It's in a very quiet neighborhood with easy access to the freeway and to the grocery store. Everyone found the beds comfortable in all 3 bedrooms. There was a blow up single mattress in the linen closet which we also made use of. The kitchen was really well stocked with spices, pots, pans, utensils, etc. Everything was very clean and there were great directions on how to use the TV, open the patio doors, etc. There's a wonderful patio with an outdoor grill and fridge. There's a hot tub and the backyard feels very private with a fence and lovely vegetation. I found the owner, Jill, very easy to work with. She responded to my questions and needs within a day. She allowed us to have a later checkout since we had a brunch to go to on checkout day. I took a walk around the neighborhood and found a cute little public trail through a "wilderness" area to walk through, and my son found a handy set of stairs, also from the neighborhood, straight to an In-and-Out Burger joint. I would absolutely stay here again and would highly recommend this home for anyone staying in the Santa Barbara area."

  • Great home for gatherings

    "We booked this home for a family vacation and enjoyed it immensely. We had a group of 10 people and not only were the bedrooms ample with comfortable beds, but the living area and outside deck offered us plenty of room. The view from the deck was amazing and so relaxing to have our dinners and morning coffee we felt like we were staying in the Tuscan countryside a million miles away! The kitchen was well stocked for us to prepare our meals and enjoy all the comforts of home. Although there was a large television in the family room and a TV in each bedroom we never turned any of them on and instead just enjoyed the relaxing feel of the home and playing games out on the deck. The drive into town is about 10 minutes, but due to the parking issues in town because it was Fiesta weekend, we chose to use Uber and Lyft which were very available at all times. Although this has nothing to do with the house itself I have to comment on Karen the owner and how incredibly easy and accomodating she was to work with. On the last night we were there, my daughter had an emergency appendectomy, which caused us to have to stay another night. My husband and I were madly trying to find a hotel to move to, but when I emailed Karen to just ask if it would be ok to extend our check out time, she responded quickly by telling us to just stay in the house and not to worry about it. I can't tell you how touched we were by her generosity and feel the need to thank her again and again. Outside of the emergency, we had a great time and this house exceeded our expectations and would rent it again in a heartbeat!"

  • Over the top on Faria!

    "Melanie and Todds beach home is superb. We had the most marvelous week staying here on Faria Beach. I was hesitant to rent so far from Santa Barbara-(it really wasn't that far), but their home and this location was much better than we expected! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for dinners at night. They even had spices. The most amazing thing about this home is the tremendous deck oceanfront. Words wouldn't be enough to describe how amazing the sunsets were. Falling asleep to the waves was truly relaxing. There were many close places to grocery shop and Ventura was very close. We rented boogie boards and wet suits at Ventura Surf Shop-5 min drive, and had dinner in Ventura two nights. Everything was perfect and Melanie and Todd really prepared us for our stay, with tips on shopping and restaurants Etc. The beach house had beach towels, but we also brought our own. We loved it so much we plan to stay over the holidays. Cheers."
