Recent Santa Barbara reviews

  • The perfect Santa Barbara experience

    "We booked Spring House because we were attending a wedding at the Four Seasons, and we were traveling with children. The location was perfect - easy walk or short drive to the hotel and beach, easy access to attractions (the kids loved the zoo!), close to shopping and dining in Montecito, and a quick drive or Uber to State Street. We all had plenty of room, both inside and outside. We enjoyed the peaceful gardens and the spacious and well decorated interior spaces. The house is so comfortable that we all felt at home right away."

  • Wonderful location, superb view!

    "The Riviera View is a wonderful place to spend time - we wished we didn't have to leave! This house has 2 great, comfortable decks for viewing Santa Barbara and the Pacific Ocean. The lower bedroom looks out at the same view from glass sliding doors. Imagine what it's like to brush your teeth while also seeing the same view! Awesome!!"

  • Santa Barbara with Panache.

    "We loved this place. After being escorted through the delightful courtyard we entered the large and comfortable private living space. The large living room opens to the grand terrace filled with tropical plants. Upstairs is the spacious master suite with two balconies. Windows are all around. Everything is tastefully decorated with stylish and high quality fixtures and furnishings and enveloped in strong warm colours. Access couldn't be easier with the automatic private garage. Centrally located in a quiet area where we walked to the local farmers market, the shops and the restaurants. We could live there - easily."

  • Wonderful, user friendly property

    "We've traveled every year to Santa Barbara for about 10 years and this is the first property we'd like to return to. There are two of us, but we rent two bedrooms because one bedroom properties tend to be too small for 8-9 nights for us. I was a little worried it would be dark inside from the photos, but the sun's arc in the winter means the kitchen and deck side of the house are flooded with light ( on sunny days) that extends into the living room. It was too chilly to use the deck, but it would be delightfully convenient and pleasant on warmer days. We loved the laser light outside for the holidays! The owners have supplied the full range and more of items that make living easy: we were gifted coffee beans (we don't have a grinder at home) and found, in addition to the coffee maker, a grinder. There are plenty of good (not plastic) dishes, cutlery, mugs that were large sizes (we tend to bring our rather than suffer tiny ones), glassware, pots and pans, etc. We like to cook and this is a full sized kitchen, unlike so many places that have no counter space or the footprint disappears if you open the dishwasher. New sponge, cutting boards, etc. Some places no longer have soap in the bathrooms (!) but shampoo, conditioner, soap, hairdryer, plenty of towels, and perhaps as important, plenty of hooks to hang towels (and jackets) abound. We didn't use the washer/dryer, which are located in the garage. The bed is a little on the soft side four us but we recognize that different people like different firmness of mattresses. The down quilt kept us warm, and the heat worked well although even in the winter, the house gets so much sun, there are few days and even evenings that it is needed. The house is on a very quiet corner, up a small hill with a cross street that isn't a through-street so the traffic is minimal. It's not the perfect location for people who like to be close to State Street or the beach, but if you have a car or are able to ride one of the eight (!) bikes in the garage, you can be there in 10 minutes. There are three upright, 3-speed comfort bikes, two 21-speed bikes (on the small but still adult side) and 3 kids' sized bikes, lots of helmets and a couple of locks. Next time we'll bring our own bike mirrors, since we find it safest to be able to see each other when riding without full turnaround. We truly appreciate the O'Sullivan's thoughtfulness in making this a comfortable home away from home, and hope to return."
