  • Perfect Location, Perfect Space!

    "The location alone would be enough to consider this place perfect. But what adds even more to the perfect location is the perfect house! It is spacious, clean, and has tons of fun amenities. There are two kitchens, a ping pong room with a fridge, a large outdoor courtyard. This is the perfect place for a large group that wants to be within walking distance of downtown, and only steps away from the beach, a park across the street and an awesome little market on the corner."

  • Perfect SB rental

    "This is such an amazing property! It really offers everything you could want while visiting Santa Barbara. Upon arriving at the house I was immediately thrilled to see how nice everything was from the landscaping to the interior. All rooms were spacious and at no point did myself or the 4 other guests staying there feel cramped in anyway. The location is perfect, you can walk to Hendry's beach within 5 minutes or drive into downtown SB within 10. The hot tub was an awesome bonus as well, it was so great to go out and relax in it at night when the temps went down. This was my first time ever in SB, not sure when the next time I'll be back there will be.... When that time does come though, this will be the first place I look to rent again. Thanks again Jeff & Kara!!!"

  • it felt just lke home as we walked in the door.

    "The drive out to Ultimate Rural Retreat went as expected. slow and windy, not too bad, as it had misted heavily that day. The listing was accurate with three bedrooms all comfortable sizes. beds were made and bathroom stocked. beds were comfortable.The kitchen had everything you would need to cook and serve dinners etc. We enjoyed the views from the house, all around the grounds and the many books that are in the house. we also enjoyed playing horseshoes in the shade. As for restaurants etc. they are a 30 minute drive from the house; so be sure to bring your food and water with you. Our family gathering went well, we all enjoyed our visit and we would recommend you stay at the Ultimate Rural retreat"

  • 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!"
