This rental is a good deal.

  • 5 of 5
The owners of this property really have it figured out - everything was very nice. The house is very clean, new kitchen and baths, the enclosed courtyard with hot tub provides complete privacy, and all the necessities for your stay are in place. It's a five minute ride to downtown Santa Barbara, or a bike ride (on the bike lane) takes 10 minutes. The historic Santa Barbara Mission is within walking distance. Making the lease arrangements was easy and the property owner followed up promptly on everything. My wife wanted to become a squatter. One note to people not familar with the area - bring a light jacket or sweater, the nights get quite chilly.

Awesome August stay

  • 5 of 5
Stayed for 3 days the last week in August. Close enough to State street to walk into town to eat. We had a very enjoyable day biking along the bikepath and spent another beautiful day in winecountry. This house had everything my parents, my huband and my two year old could want, and then some.

Perfect rental!

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful house in a great location at a price which represents tremendous value for money!
Let's start with first impressions: ours were "Wow!". The photos on the site do not quite do the house justice - it is larger than it appears in the photos and one is struck by the qulaity of the furnishings and fittings.
Location - it was ideal for us. The house is in a quiet, affluent suburb of SB, but is within walking distance of The Mission and the delights of State Street/Downtown. There is a supermarket within walking distance and a 3 minute drive sees you on Highway 101. There are any number of beaches within driving distance.
The lounge is large and nicely furnished. The TV is the size of UK cinema screen! Although we didn't use it, the soundsystem is of high quality. The lounge leads into a nice dining area, which, again, is well furnished. There is a big, well equipped kitchen, complete with wine cabinet/cooler. A separate area houses washing machine, etc.
All three bedrooms are of a good size, with the master bedroom's bed being perhaps the largest and most comfortable I have ever slept in. Again, both batrooms are good.
It's the details which make this house stand out - the fittings are of very high quality, the towels are thick and abundant, even the toiletries are nice! Everything shouts quality. Some rental properties have an air of having hand me down furniture and of everything being a bit second best - not this house, everything is top notch.
Bob was a pleasure to deal with and it's worth noting that I had asked if there were beach towels at the house. When we arrived we found that they had kindly been left out for us.
In conclusion, I recommend this rental most highly!

Child-friendly house, great landlord

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four (two children, ages three and nine) stayed here for a week in September and were very pleased with everything about the rental. Other reviewers have rightly complemented the owner for the lovely job he did remodeling this house- everything is nice and new and functional, and the kitchen, in particular is easy to work in. I would also like to point out that the clean layout of the house and hardwood floors make this a good choice for a family with children. My brother lives in town, and he visited the house frequently with his kids, so there were often a number of little kids happily running around. The fenced backyard was a bonus in this respect as well- there is room to kick a soccer ball while the adults relax inside or at the patio table.

Other nice aspects of the house: the front porch, which is a great spot to read a book, the hot tub, and the computer provided for guest use. The owner is extremely easy to work with and responds to emails quickly. This is a nice residential neighborhood- It is a fairly easy walk to the Mission, a much longer walk to downtown, and an easy bike ride almost anywhere.

Peaceful, Charming Craftsman

  • 5 of 5
We rented this wonderful home, with another family, for a week in August 2009. This Craftsman is situated perfectly for getting to all the places we needed to go. The home has a sense of separateness, yet is still cozy and comforting. The owners did a beautiful job remodeling this wonderful, clean, feeling-good place. They provided everything to keep a household going for the week. It was our niece's wedding in SB, and we converged from all over the West for the fun week of wedding activities and coastal sight seeing. The house and gardens did well for a larger family gathering one evening. Though some walked to the house from the beach, you probably need a car. We were even able to read a few books during the rush of wedding week, that says a lot about this home's sense of quietness. Santa Barbara has so many good places to eat and beaches to walk and birds to see. We particularly enjoyed a boat trip to Anacapa Island in the Channel Islands National Park, we hiked the island in the midst of nesting for brown pelicans, western gulls and pigeon guillemots, as well as California sea lion pupping.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5
This was a very clean and welcoming home! Our family was needing something that was comfortable and homey to be together for our daughter's graduation from UCSB. The back yard was perfect for barbequing for everyone and our grand-daughter had a safe place to play.
We would highly recommend this to families...having a washer and dryer was handy! We also loved being able to walk to one of our favorite places in Santa Barbara,the Daily Grind coffeehouse...just blocks away.
Thank you Bob for making this a great experience!

From the Owner

I originally purchased the home as my primary residence and lived there until I got married and moved to Pasadena so my wife could continue to work at JPL. My job allowed me to work from home. I love this house and did not want to sell it, so we decided to try renting it out as a vacation home, since Santa Barbara is one of the premier vacations spots in the world and the home is located close to downtown and all other Santa Barbara attractions.

From the Owner

Many of the times when we stay at the house, we go bike riding around the area. There is a bike path right in front of the house and it is easy to access Santa Barbara's network of bike paths. We go on rides between 14 and 30 miles; both longer and shorter paths are available. We also enjoy riding in the Santa Ynez valley and visiting wineries while there. We also enjoy a relaxing hot tub when we return from riding. We also enjoy the many exciting places to eat. 2 of our favorites are a small unique mexican restaurant - La Super Rica on Milpas st. The food there is unique yet inexpensive. This restaurant was one of Julia Child's favorites. There are many other fine and unique restaurants in Santa Barbara. Additionally we enjoy hiking on many of the trails in the areas mountains, as well as having a few drinks at Brophy's in the harbor.
