  • Perfect Thanksgiving retreat for our extended family of 10

    "Our family klan just returned from four very relaxing days spent at Casa Das Palmas and we are already hoping to return someday. As a previous reviewer noted, the place is even lovelier in person than in the photos; everything is tastefully decorated with treasures from Bali, the Indian subcontinent, the Mediterranean coast, and Meso-America (n.b., I should add that I was especially impressed with the "smaller" scale decorator touches as well, e.g., real wood doors, beautiful tiling in the Jack 'n Jill bathroom, fragrant flowers). Our 5 kids (ages 4-10) played football and soccer on the great expansive lawn, shot hoops on the basketball court, played tennis (even at night, on the lighted court), had ample places indoors and outdoors to hide (when playing hide-and-seek), and frolicked in the pool and jacuzzi to cool off. The adults enjoyed reading and lounging on their many luxurious and comfortable daybeds (indoor and outdoor), prepped our Thanksgiving feast in their gourmet kitchen, and jogged daily to the nearby beach and back. We loved how we could sit 11 people around their kitchen table and could make s'mores together in their cozy indoor fireplace (n.b., they also had two outdoor fireplaces that we might have used if warmer in the evenings). Everything was perfect and the icing on the cake was the wonderful hospitality of the owners - Vivi was a delight to work with (when corresponding about the rental agreement) and Chris (their property manager) was so gracious in welcoming us on our first day and providing a mini-tour of the house, hand-delivering a copy of the New York Times the following day when my father noted that his copy of the Los Angeles Times hadn't arrived, and returning on our final day to bid us adieu. If our travel plans allow for it, we will return!"

  • Loved it!

    "My family stayed at this home over UCSB graduation weekend. Everything was as beautiful as advertised, and the views were stunning. The landscaping is beautifully maintained with a big variety of seating areas from which to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Just a few minutes from downtown Santa Barbara, you get the town at your fingertips while relaxing in what feels like your own ranch. Loved the fresh eggs!! We hope we get to go back to this place sometime!!"

  • Beautiful Home with Breathtaking View

    "We booked this home for our daughter's wedding to catch up with our out-of-town family & friends. It was the perfect home with it's comfortable beds & well equipped kitchen plus the beautiful deck to enjoy coffee and breakfast in the mornings. When we arrived it was so fresh & clean with all bathrooms offering plenty of towels. The master suite was amazing with an extra large bathroom & spa tub. The other bedrooms were just as nice with extra beds to accommodate everyone. Most of our stay we gathered in the kitchen preparing meals which had bar stools for Grandmas to sit and enjoy the conversation. The kitchen was completely stocked with all the utensils you'd need and plenty of dishware to serve a large group plus two dishwashers made clean up simple. The owner, Karen, was quick to respond and even mailed me back a little gift I had forgotten. Everyone was so relaxed enjoying the large living room & dining area. A perfect place for any family event! The weekend was beautiful, and having this home to entertain our family, made the wedding even more special!! Thank you Karen for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!"
