About the Owner

My husband and I met in Santa Barbara and have raised our family here. We live in a wonderful area that is rural but close to downtown, the beach and the foothills. We love our home and have a couple of acres where we use to keep our horses and, have plenty of room to keep our 2 Australian shepherds happy. We have a great little guest cottage on the property as well and thought it would be fun to share it with people traveling to and through SB that have dogs, although, we think people with out animals will love it as well.

We had the most wonderful experience at the Cottage. This is the perfect place for a peaceful getaway. Vicki is the most awesome person!! She is someone we could be friends with. Her attention to detail in the Cottage is phenomenal. It is a beautiful, clean and perfectly located place. We had everything we needed and never wanted to leave but felt like we should do a little exploring. The dog beach was so much fun. Our dog had never experienced that before and she loved it. Cafe Stella was one of Vicki's recommendations as a pet friendly eatery and it didn't disappoint. I could go on forever about this place but just let me end by saying that it was the best place we have ever stayed. We can't wait to return!!

Couple with Dog

This was the best VRBO we've stayed in. Lots of light and air with french doors that can be left open so the wonderful breezes can waft through. The cottage is very private with roses and fruit trees lining the path to the cottage gate. It is very clean and very pretty, with nice dishes and a comfortable couch and chairs. Vicki was extremely responsive. It's clear she is proud of her cottage and wants to make sure her guests enjoy themselves. It was nice to stay in a place that really welcomed rather than just tolerated dogs. Dog treats, dog towels, and dog bowls were provided. I booked the cottage because it is less than a mile from Hendry's Beach where dogs can be off leash, and we went there every day, sometimes more than once. Our dog had a great time meeting other dogs and running in the surf. We ate breakfast every day on the cottage deck and watched the birds and enjoyed the great, private view. I'd love to go back.

Fantastic find! Great vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this super clean, artistically decorated one bedroom cottage It has large wrap around decks with mountain views. The owner was super friendly and helpful. The Kitchen is good sized and has pretty dishware. My husband and I found the queen size bed very comfortable. My dog was welcome and safe because of the fenced yard and special touches like dog treats and designated dog towels. Our daughter came up to join us for two nights with her dog and they had a great time also. We entertained friends for lunch out on the deck and preparing food and serving from the kitchen was super easy. Beautiful off leash places to hike and dog friendly beaches are minutes away. We look forward to coming back!

The Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 6 year old son, and dog just got back from staying here over the 4th of July holiday. This place far exceeded our expectations. It's a place like you would see in Sunset Magazine. It was a perfect escape for us from Los Angeles. It truly was magical waking up to horses, humming birds, flowers, and the beautiful view off the back porch.

From the Owner

The best part about our property is the peace, location and being able to have a safe place for pets. We are less than 5 minutes away from one of the only off leash dog beaches in Santa Barbara. The hiking trails in the foothills are all with in minutes from out property, as well. Downtown Santa Barbara, where all the theaters, shopping and restaurants are also just minutes away.
