About the Owner

I moved to Santa Barbara 25 years ago after spending a mere four day vacation here. I now, and have for the last 20 years, sell real estate and manage my own rentals. All are long term, except for Caza de Coco which I converted to a vacation rental recently. It is too cute and located in an A+++location

312352 - Caza de Coco - Huba Huba Get Down Downtown

Location can't be beat. Easy to walk to shopping, restaurants, the beach but on a quiet street. No off street parking which concerned us at first but we never had a problem finding a space. The house is cozy & well furnished - although a little less "decorating" so guests have more room to put their things would be nice. Loved sitting out on the front porch. The owner was wonderful - a very gracious "hostess" and very easy to work with.

Great location and property

  • 4 of 5
Thank you for letting us stay at your Santa Barbara cottage it was the perfect place for 4 adults visiting Santa Barbara for the first time. The location is excellent and you were a perfect hostess responding to our needs. I would love to return, but next time with our dogs! My only suggestions would be to have a few more items on stock like toilet paper, coffee etc.

Owner's Response: Cassie: Oh my... I don't know where to begin. In regards to the toilet paper, as I mentioned to your husband when I brought you the extra roles, there are normally 3 extra rolls in the bathroom. That was simply a housekeeping oversight and I responded as soon as I was told of it! I wouldn't expect the four of you to survive for 3 days on one roll! I try so hard to go overboard and beyond the expected and predict what one might need to make a vacation seamless i.e. new slipper socks for cold feet, first aid kit, sewing kit, iron and board, baby or dog gate,dog sheets & towels, clothes steamer, blow dryer, shampoo/conditioner/soap, toothbrushes/paste,make-up removers, laundry detergent & spot removers,dog wipes, beach tar remover, aspirin, foot powder, rubbing alcohol, beach towels, extra blankets & pillows, water purifier, mixer, blender, assorted pots and pans, ice bucket, dishes/silverware,lemon squeezer, ice cream scooper, pot holders, cookie sheets/muffin pans etc, serving platters, bbq utensils, paper plates/plastic utin/napkins (even toothpicks), saran wrap/aluminum foil/baggies, flower vases, games and cards, scissors, scotch tape, rubber bands, lint remover, calculator, magnification mirror in bath and hand magnifier in kitchen, Santa Barbara City map, note pad and pen, candy, breath mints, local tourist guides and I even drive over and hand deliver the weekly magazine "Independent" that comes out on Thursdays! These items are additional items, most of which are not even mentioned in vrbo. In the "house instructions" in the drawer under the TV, I mention that if food products are used they should be replenished by the guest that uses them. I don't monitor or supply them. Over time the basics end up there such as salt, pepper, sugar, syrup, mustard, mayonnaise, oil, coffee, tea, jam, etc -most guests don't cook or even make coffee due to the proximity of all the coffee houses and restaurants. The non-perishable food products are just passed on to the next guest.
Well, I guess a prior guest used all the coffee and didn't replace it, I'm sorry about that. I am not sure what you meant by "etc" in your post???? I really don't know what else one might be expecting when they stay at a vacation rental. It is not a bed and breakfast and I can't cook anyway--you really don't want me bringing food! The toilet paper was an oversight which I remedied as soon as I was told about it, I apologize again for the oversite, housekeeping has been notified.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at the Bungalulu property with my two best four legged friends. The property far exceeded my expectations and Mimi was simply wonderful to us while we were there. Being able to stay in such a gorgeous property with my dogs meant the world to me, it allowed me to relax in lovely surroundings but also be able to take them with me. Mimi is such a dog lover - dog bowls inside and out, toys, providing dog sheets for the sofas so if your dog is like mine and is used to the sofa at home doesn't have to be constantly told off here. The yard is fully fenced so I could relax and know that they were safe and couldn't escape. Mimi focuses on providing everything you would need to make your stay perfect and she also makes sure you know that she can be contacted for any need you might have. We cannot wait to return and wished we could have stayed longer.

Perfect hidden cottage

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in "Bungalulu," a 1.5-br cottage located in the back of a classic SB property. It was an adorable and extremely dog-friendly place to call home for a few days. Mimi even provides "dog sheets" so that dogs can be on the furniture. The backyard is magical, and the location can't be beat - everything is walkable. A wonderful place! Thank you Mimi!!

Great Location, Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in The Annex for a week and could not have been happier. Mimi is a gracious host who loves dogs. If you're traveling with a pet, you know it's difficult to find high quality lodging but we found it here! The house was spotless and very nicely decorated with all the amenities. We walked everywhere ... groceries, restaurants downtown shopping, Funk Zone, the beach. Mimi sent texts with recommendations on things to do and was always available for questions. Definitely recommend!

Great Location!

Two of us stayed here for a quick weekend getaway. Fabulous location 15 min walk from the train station and beach and 1 block away from lots of shopping, dining, and historical sites. About a 30 minute walk to Mission Santa Barbara. The house is very comfortable for 2-4 people. Very clean, fun decorations, and everything you could possibly need. We had a lovely weekend.

Owner's Response: Carolyn: Thank you for your review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and took your late train (who knew, I thought trains always arrived on time) arrival in stride. I do hope you return and can visit longer, there is plenty more to see here. Take care.

We loved our stay in this cute little house. The location is the best and so close to everything downtown. Mimi is extremely helpful. The home is well maintained and well equipt. We would have enjoyed more time in the backyard and perhaps a barbecue area.

Owner's Response: Cindy and Keith: Thank you for your stay. You were both so "busy", I don't know how you had all of that energy! I should have mentioned that the black thing in the back garden is a Weber bar-b-que and the equipment to bar-b-que was located in your closet on the back porch. The weather was with you for a bar-b-que, I'm sorry you didn't question me. I probably would have fired it up for you! Thanks for writing

Location

From the Owner

This property was converted to a vacation rental because of the location. It sits in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. Everything is steps away, yet it fronts on one of the coolest streets in Santa Barbara. The house was built in the early 1900s so it is extremely charming with very large windows and beautiful natural light. There are fenced yards and viewing porches both front and back. It is an oasis, a secret spot, a hold-out, a gem peaking out of a downtown corridor. You won't want to leave Santa Barbara and ESPECIALLY Caza de Coco.
