Guestbook comments from the owner

"Dear Bunny,

Thank you so much for all the thought and effort you put into your wonderful vacation cottage. love all the white fluffy towels and clean soft sheets. we’ve grilled many wonderful meals on your little deck grill. and we bought a great bottle of champagne and forgot to buy flutes, and of course, they were here. i think my favorite is the lovely rosemary bushes in front that make everything smell fresh and wonderful when i wake up each morning. it’s just so perfect, we’re already contemplating our return visit dates for next summer!

we’ve surfed, biked, segweyed, surried and strolled all over town. we’ve eaten at Tomas, The Lark, Opal, On the Alley, Pascucci, the Shellfish Company, Sambo’s, theScarletBegonia, the Public Market, Jane … we even joined the wine club at LaFonds! what a memorable vacation. my son, Cole, took this photo after dinner at Brophy Brothers last night, right before the waves crashed over the wall and soaked us all!"

Best stay yet in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5
For over a dozen years my wife and I have spent 3 to 7 days in Santa Barbara each summer. We have been to B&Bs in Santa Barbara and Summerland; a couple of the beach resorts, and another rental. This was by far the best. Quiet, convenient, clean, comfortable, roomy, well equipped. Quick on and off 101 if going someplace by car; and an easy walk to beaches and State Street restaurants and attractions. Bunny (owner) was friendly and responsive to any request we had. We will be back.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 nights here with our 2 teenage sons, and we had a great time. The location is absolutely perfect. Very centrally located, yet very quiet and peaceful at the same time. We walked to the harbor and the beach, walked to State Street, rode bikes to a farmer's market--and came home to a darling, clean, cottage in a nice, quiet neighborhood. Our sons are athletic teenagers, and they fit fine in the loft. I would love to return to this cottage!!! Bunny, thank you for a great family vacation!

It was amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Beach Bunny Cottage for 2 weeks and it was perfect. We were 4 adults and the size of the cottage is definitely enough. The Beach and State Street is really close and you don´t need the car to go there. You can wash your clothes and it has everything you need. If we would go to Santa Barbara again we would go to the Beach Bunny Cottage. Thank you Bunny, we really enjoyed it!

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Beach Bunny Cottage for almost a month as we needed a home away from home when my son had surgery. I can't say enough about our stay. It was clean, quiet, and truly a home away from home. The beach was a two minute walk, downtown a couple of blocks away, easy on/off the highway to get to the hospital. Bunny made sure everything was perfect. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Small Lovely Cottage in a Great Location

  • 4 of 5
The owner, Bunny, has a done a fantastic job setting up this small cottage to be spotlessly clean and homey. It has everything one should need and is in a superb location for access to the beach, downtown, etc. We barely drove once while we were there.

The only downside for us was the upstairs attic room which is really a lot smaller than it appears in the photos. It has a very small spiral staircase leading up to it with a low ceiling. Our 8 y/o daughter was too afraid to sleep up there by herself but I would imagine that families with multiple kids won't have the problems we had. The room also gets a bit hot which we managed to solve by putting fans in both windows.

Other than that, our stay was wonderful and I'm happy we stayed here. The owner was extremely helpful and pleasant to work with too. Thank you for sharing your home with us, Bunny!

Owner's Response: Hi Mike,
Yes, it is unfortunate that you all arrived in the middle of a heat wave in Santa Barbara and the County. Our median temp is 72 degrees so we don't have A/C's! However, the circulating air vents in the loft were closed, perhaps by accident. That is a system we had installed for such rare "hot" days.
I've had "children" of all ages and even grandparents stay in our loft! I provide a floorplan and photos of our Cottage on our official website too: and am always available to answer questions anyone may have regarding our accommodations.
It is always our goal to provide, as you so nicely wrote "a spotlessly clean and homey" Cottage is a superb location.
I hope you all visit Santa Barbara again!
Thank you kindly for your review.
