  • Just great!

    "After 1,5 years, this was our second time at this wonderful place - and it really couldn't have been any better. Our two little ones settled in immediately and for us it kind of felt like coming home. Everything was perfectly maintained and Lori - the owner - was as responsive and helpful as one can be. So thank you so much for this wonderful 10 weeks. It was hard for us to leave and we would definitely love to come back again :-)"

  • 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!"

  • A very pleasant, very convenient place to stay in Santa Barbara

    "This is a lovely apartment a few short blocks from the beach. The accommodations are perfect for two people - the rooms are open and airy, and the bed and bedding are first rate. We especially appreciated that there are reading lights on both sides of the bed so that we could read a few pages before going off to sleep. It has a lovely rooftop deck perfect for morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine to watch the sun go down. The owner was very helpful with information before, during, and after our stay. We will stay at Chapala Gardens again in a heartbeat!"
