  • Tebo; We would highly recommend.

    "Unique and very well located. We were in unit # 2 which is nicely furnished and comfortable with nice appliances. Three interesting features are the rooftop garden which contains numerous vertical hydroponic growing containers, the train station which is located just about one block away and the Mission Creek watershed canal which runs right below the unit's windows and small deck. Interestingly, the channel seems to experience a reverse flow at times which we could only imagine would be the high tides. If so, that phenomenon should be quite dramatic during stormy weather such as SB is presently experiencing. The rooftop deck should be a very nice attraction during sunny weather which we unfortunately did not get much of curing our stay. The train station is charming, perhaps inviting guests to explore nearby areas. A connecting bridge is under construction which should connect to the station from the end of the street. The sound of the trains two-three times daily lends to the atmosphere rather than being any problem. As to the location, it is fabulous. The beach is only a couple blocks' walk away as is the harbor and pier while State Street, which leads into town is also nearby and a nice walk. The area around the Gardens contains numerous examples of gorgeous architecture from Santa Barbara's past. The only drawbacks we found with the unit/Chapala Gardens were: The shower is very small; lighting is not very good and a couple of bulbs were out; We were there when the hydroponic units on the roof were being moved about for some time, creating quite a bit of noise right above our heads; One day while we were out walking, the property owner let himself in to repair the Laser Disk player without notifying us and was in the unit when we returned (we would have preferred he had called us or left a note). All in all, we would highly recommend Chapala Gardens."

  • Birthday Celebration

    "This home is newly restored and absolutely beautiful. Kristin has thought of every possible comfort to make your stay beyond delightful. From the incredibly comfortable mattresses with high thread count sheets to the warm throw blankets that keep you cosy while sitting outside enjoying the ocean views; all your needs are easily met. Our family went to SB to celebrate our college daughter's birthday and were able to all stay together in the house. The kitchen is well stocked and completely organized with anything you might need to cook all weekend. The ocean views from the house are spectacular. The house sits on a hill and is extremely quiet which allowed our family to sleep in and completely relax. It is minutes to Montecito or downtown SB. We will definitely stay again. We can't wait! Thank you, Kristin for making our weekend so special."

  • This is beachfront living! 🐬🐬🐬

    "This is our second summer and we have already booked our stay for next year! We have been renting in Carp for almost 20 years and let me tell you, we are thrilled to have found the best rental in the sand! The sounds of the waves put you to sleep and gently wake you in the morning. The two sliders facing the sand, give the feeling of an open living space. The rooms are roomy and two full bathrooms make it easy for our family when we come back from the beach. We spend our nights playing games at the table and listening to the waves."
