“Best trip to SB EVER!”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2016

This was by far the best trip we've ever taken as a family and it was in VERY LARGE part due to staying at Cathrine's rental home. the please was perfect for our family to get some privacy and spread out which is something not possible in a hotel. the place had everything you could need for a trip (all house hold needs + amazing location close to everything). the house was very clean and you can tell that there is a pride in ownership here. we did have slight issues with the dishwasher but cathrine was very helpful in communicating. I have already recommended this location to a church friend who's daughter starts at UCSB in the fall and will be comeing to the SB area periodically over the next 4 years. If you're looking for the best way to visit SB, look no further then this location... Our family has already started talking about doing this same trip next summer and we know where we will be staying should this house be available!

“Everything you need for a stay in Santa Barbara”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2016

Located in a beautiful Santa Barbara neighborhood, this lovely house was absolutely perfect for our New Year's trip. It was wonderful to have our dogs with us for the weekend. They loved running back and forth across the ample backyard. The house was comfortable, roomy and secure. A short drive to State St and all the great things Santa Barbara has to offer. Would love to come back and stay here again!

Owner's reply: So glad you liked my house. Please come back.

“Perfect family retreat”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2015

This lovely house made our trip to Santa Barbara so much more enjoyable than staying in a hotel would have been. With 3 young children, having a full kitchen and laundry room was very convenient, and having plenty of space and a gorgeous back yard was the icing on the cake. My family and I very much enjoyed our stay, and we living in the next best thing to home. Catherine is very easy to deal with, and it's obvious she takes great pride in not only this house, but in making her guests feel welcome. If I'm traveling with family back to Santa Barbara in the future, I will definitely stay there again.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much, Cathy. I'm very happy you enjoyed your time there.

“Wonderful and relaxing”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2014

My family and I stayed for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house is lovely, perfect really, with fully equipped kitchen which was great since we love to cook. The jacuzzi was great, and the beds very comfortable with smooth new bedding. Usually my husband can't sleep in hotels but this was like home. Stores, shopping and beach close by too. We will come back for sure!

“Awesome house perfect for a ladies weekend!”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2013

We recently stayed at this lovely home for my best freinds bachelorette weekend! We were more than surprised when we walked in. Its better than in the photos. Everything was perfect. It has the best vibe and its the perfect location. Close to the freeways, state street and anything else you need. The owner was great to deal with, and accomodated us with everything we had asked for. I would definitley stay here again and hope to in the future! I highly recommend this place!

“Super Fine”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2013

A small paradise with absolutely gorgeous landscaping and a pool and hot tube which invite you in to swim and soak. A serene place not too far from downtown Santa Barbara and the wine country.

“Perfect weekend”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2012

We stayed there for 5 wonderful days. The house was perfect, very clean and well appointed and the same with the neighborhood. We loved the backyard with the hot tub and the huge master suite.

“Great place”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2012

we had a great family holiday and this property was perfect. Lovely yard, and all kitchenware and entertainment amenities were included. Thanks!

“Fabulous Place!”

Reviewed 16 Nov 2011

This place is wonderful, especially for a large group. The decor is tasteful and the living room, dining room, and kitchen are all open so you feel like everyone is together even if they are in different places. It was extremely well taken care of and had lovely landscaping.

“Mediterranean style home in SB”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2011

This house was everything the review said it was. It was spotless, very spacious and comfortable. It was centrally located - easy to get to from Hwy. 101, close to town and the beach as well as in easy reach of the attractions in the area. We had family over to visit and everyone was envious of how nice the house was that we had rented. It was great!
