Girls weekend

I stayed at this house with my girlfriends for a bachelorette party. There were 13 of us - which was a tight fit. Although at first glance, the house is wonderful - it was extremely dirty. One of the pillows actually had a red stain on it (gross!). We immediately washed the pillow cases, but I wish I had time to wash the sheets. Not sure they were clean at all. There was a cot that also was pretty grimy - there were extra sheets on the floor, but one couldn't tell if those were clean either. There were plenty of bathrooms, which was great - except two of them were filled with ants! We also had two centipedes on the floor and in the shower. In addition, the shower curtain was disgusting! It has tons of mold on it, not to mention the lipstick looking stain on the side. Gross. I showered in shoes. It's also clear that the neighbors HATE that this is a vacation rental. On night one, the neighbors called the landlord at 745 pm and complained that we were too loud. Let's be honest, we were cooking dinner and eating in the living room. We actually spent almost no time at the house after 9pm either night - so it was very frustrating that the bride of the bachelorette party was getting multiple phone calls that we were being too loud according to the neighbors. The only saving grace was the view. It's spectacular. Overall, if this house was clean and maintained, it would have been worth the money- bottom line, for what we paid it should have been flawless!

This house was absolutely perfect for us! Our family traveled from VA to come to my mother-in-laws 90th birthday celebration last month (December, 2010) and had a fantastic time! We were a group of 12 with young children and teens. This wonderful house has a fun game room downstairs and a bright and comfortable living room to enjoy. We loved being together on the deck and at the large dining table for meals and games. The view is absolutely stunning and makes an amazing back drop for photos! The deck calls you to sit in the sunshine. It truly is the perfect place to relax and watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee and wind down with a glass of wine at sunset. This house is incredibly welcoming and laid back, which made our stay stress free. As others have stated, the owner is very accommodating and informative, which is a super bonus. I only wish we lived in CA so we could book this house a few times a year! As it is, when we visit Santa Barbara again we will definitely be staying here!

Simply Perfect

March 29, 2010

Last year, my brother Noah almost died due to a hemorrhagic stroke resulting from a cerebral AVM. Miraculously he survived -- and you can read his story at noahupdate dot com . Well, on March 27th, 2010 Noah had his first birthday since his near-death experience. We threw a surprise birthday for Noah and had about a dozen of his closest friends come to town from all over the country. This beautiful, stunning home provided the absolute perfect setting for the surprise and the wonderful weekend that ensued. This was such a meaningful milestone for me and my family -- and I cannot tell you the joy that resulted from staying at this home and watching my brother spend time with his closest friends and family and truly enjoy himself. The house is a playground -- it has EVERYTHING. The best view in all of Santa Barbara, proximity to downtown (literally a 3-minute drive), a jacuzzi, a foos ball table, more Wii games that could ever be dreamed of -- and 5 beautiful bedrooms. The setting couldn't have been better -- the landlord couldn't have been more wonderful to deal with and I couldn't recommend this experience any higher. If you're coming to Santa Barbara, and you want to have the time of your life, stay here. You won't regret it. Adam Fell

Great New Year

January 7, 2010

We were in Santa Barbara for a wedding over the new year and had a great time. The house has a wonderful view and was awesome to wake up, get coffee and sit on deck watching the sunrise over the city and ocean. Would stay again at this house. Thanks

Great value in SB

This house is the best value in Santa Barbara for a large group. We had BBQ and breakfast on the deck, which has a gorgeous view of the coast. It's within walking distance of State Street and The Mission. The owner is extremely helpful and easy to work with. I would recommend this place to my friends for their trip to SB in the future.

Peaceful, yet Fun! As we had breakfast on the deck, the view of the Pacific and the red clay roofs of this quaint town were calling us to explore. The wide sand beaches, (just down the hill) were delightful to sunbathe and fun for our kids to play in the gentle surf. Santa Barbara has held on to it's quaint Spanish character, yet has upscale shopping. This large Mediterranean two story home is decorated nicely in Spanish motif. It accommodated both our families and gives privacy, too. Sipping wine in the Jacuzzi under the moonlight was a real plus! The owner was warm and so informative. He knew all the "in" places go and the "secret hide aways." We plan to make this a Family Tradition!

We had a wonderful time with our large extended family in this home. It sleeps lots of people and has a fantastic unobstructed 180 degree view of the coast. We loved having breakfast and happy hour on the deck. We also enjoyed the hot tub. It is a comfy home within walking distance of State Street. We also ventured out to the mission. It is not super modern or updated, but our large family liked the fact that we could just relax and enjoy.

Wonderful house in Santa Barbara

March 4, 2009

This is a gorgeous house, and perfect for a large group. Lots of different spaces for people to gather - a huge kitchen with counter seating - we were there for a very short time, so we didn't use the bicycles to ride along the paths to the beach, but I hope to return for a longer visit sometime. The owner is very friendly and accommodating.

WOW what a view!!!!!!!!! Stunning in awe of a perfect wedding celebration, watching the sunrise over the bay, steam rising from the soft tub and the melody of conversation mixed with the song of nightingales lifting my all time moments up a notch, well to put it lightly your house captured that. Thanks we hope to return soon

The view is amazing! There is no better way to start the day than sitting on the balcony, drinking coffee, looking out over beautiful Santa Barbara. I suggest doing the same with a glass of wine at sunset. The house was very comfortable and fit our group of 5 adult couples just fine. Close to town, the house was the perfect addition to a wonderful weekend.

When we walked through the door we loved the house instantly. The house had plenty of room and we loved coming home after a long day and taking a dip in the hot tub. The deck had amazing views of the entire city and we enjoyed the family BBQ dinners. We watched movies on the TV and played on the Wii. My children loved jumping on the trampoline and playing foosball. We enjoyed our time so much and had a perfect family vacation we are definitely coming back next year.

Great house, Great views, GREAT VALUE!
We chose this terrific home in the Santa Barbara "Riviera" for our summer family get-together. 7 adults and 2 dogs couldn't have been happier.

Here's what we found: Plenty of space for everyone, comfortable beds, ample parking, a knock-out view of the city below and the Pacific beyond, a quiet neighborhood perfect for early morning walks in the picturesque hills above the town, a lush, fully-enclosed backyard with basketball court and hot tub, bikes and helmets for our use, two flat-screen high-def TVs, wi-fi, and games galore. Add to this a personable, gregarious and accomodating owner all too willing to provide us with tips on things to do and see (which only locals would know), and you've got a winner!

Some other rentals might be closer to the beach or to the action of State Street, but none can offer the panoramic views, the spaciousness, the seclusion, or the absolute value of this gem. If you have a large group and need plenty of room, this is your place.

Review Submitted: May 8, 2009 Date of Stay: April 2009
I stayed at this house with a grouo of 10 girls and it was perfect for us. There was plenty of space for all of us and our things. The number of bathrooms was great. This house offers everything from games, other entertainment, 2 kitchen areas and the spa was icing on the cake. We found ourselves spending most of our time in the house because it was so accomidating. It is in a beautiful area and is close to every attraction desired. The view is breath taking and was a wonderful site to look at all day long. The owner was very nice and provided us with everything we needed. I would recommend this house to everyone I know and plan to stay there again

Some of the best pictures from our wedding came from your backyard and deck..

Thank you we had a wonderful time in your beautiful home. The family enjoyed gathering on the deck to watch the sunset, walking down to State Street and hiking to inspiration point. What a Great Weekend!!!! We will be back next year.
