  • 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!"

  • 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!"

  • Can't wait to come back!

    "We stayed in this gorgeous home for a week, wish we had planned to stay longer. Our family of 10 was in Santa Barbara for our son's wedding, this was the perfect house for the family to gather together. The house is beautiful, but very comfortable and family friendly. A fully stocked kitchen, plenty of comfortable seating inside and out, an adorable playhouse our grandchildren loved, it was just the space we were looking to rent. The owners, Norm and Tricia, couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Something always seems to go wrong with wedding celebrations, and they went above and beyond trying to help us deal with the minor glitches we ran into. Everything turned out perfectly, we have a beautiful new daughter-in-law and many memories of a wonderful week."
