  • review secret getaway

    "We very much enjoyed our stay in Santa Barbara, a lot because of the nice apartment. The Secret Getaway is a wonderful place to stay, so close to the beach and downtown. We also liked the perfectly equipped kitchen that had as cook more often than we had actually planned, enjoying the small terrasse in the evening sun. Just perfect."

  • 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!"

  • Fantastic find

    "This house is perfect for families. I stayed here with several adults and a few teenagers. Ruta has everything you could possible need for a comfortable stay. Super cute decorations, very comfortable beds. She even goes so far as ironing the pillow cases! Several great outdoor areas to hang out in, two porches, one you can watch the sunset the other is great for an extra outdoor area while hanging in the kitchen. Backyard has a fire pit and lots of seating. The sugar shack is a great bonus space, super cute! Ruta provides bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs, towels and an amazing wagon to pull all your gear to the beach. A short walk to the nearest beach. The weather was pretty hot while we there, the house was very comfortable temperature wise. I was a little concerned by the fact that this house sits right by the train tracks, there was only one train that romped on the horn in the middle of the night, after that I barely noticed they were there. I highly recommend Ruta's home. She was a pleasure to work with. I will definitely be back."

  • Italian Charm!

    "I must say, my girls and I all fell in love with this house! The owners have done a remarkable job with their attention to detail on the decor. The pictures do no do it justice. The house in conveniently located to downtown Santa Barbara and the beach. Great quite and peaceful neighborhood, we Ubered it everywhere. The home is ideal for a family get away or just a weekend get away with your friends and or significant other. The price is great for all that you get and the owners have done a great job making sure all amenities are in the home. I can go on forever!!! I definitely will be renting this house again!!!"
