About the Owner

Having grown up in Santa Barbara, I truly appreciate everything that has made this town such a wonderful place. Its history, its people, its surroundings. Having traveled the world as a TV producer and director, I can honestly say, it is hard to find a better year-round destination anywhere. I have brought this great appreciation for Santa Barbara to all of the properties that I have built and remodeled. We do everything to make sure you enjoy your visit.

We Loved It

  • 5 of 5
The very first afternoon, we came up the stairs, walked into the flat and I spied a hummingbird at a tree, just outside one of the many decks. I KNEW we had come to the right place! Easy walking distance to State St. and attractions. Easy drive to Trader Joe's or another grocery store. Nice and quiet neighborhood. Lots of light and it was so private. The view of the mountains was lovely. The flat itself was clean and had everything we needed. The bed was so comfortable; we both slept well every night. We both hated to leave. We'll be back.

Spacious, Light and Gorgeous Views of the Riviera and mountains

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were looking for a two-week rental in downtown Santa Barbara near where my daughter lives. We were so fortunate to find this beautiful Loft Studio that was within walking / biking distance of her place and downtown. The open space and many decks gave a lift to my spirit every day -- a deck with the morning sun for coffee and a rear deck with gorgeous view of the Riviera and mountains were reasons to just "hang out" and enjoy the place! There was ample room to entertain my daughter and grandson, and all who visited said they wanted to live there. In addition, David allowed us to use some bikes for our explorations to Butterfly Beach, the Courthouse and Mission, and of course the marvelous bike path along the beach and harbor. David was most accomodating to our needs, and the best part of our visit was the personal walking tour he gave us and our family of Historic Santa Barbara -- he was so knowledgable about the culture and past of the area. Thank you, David, we appreciate your time and helpfulness. Our visit to Santa Barbara would not have been the same without the experience at the Casita Vista de la Riviera!

Amazing accomodations

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful experience we had with this beautiful home and the owner, David, too.

My fiancé and I got married in Santa Barbara on September 27th and rented this home for our wedding weekend stay. Initially there was a miscommunication over how to book the stay (I didn't realize we could book online), and I had just snail mailed in our rental agreement with check when I learned that the home had been rented overnight online. David and I had already had email conversations regarding my intent to rent the space, when David quickly informed me that the space had been rented overnight. David mentioned he would be happy to accommodate us in another space on the property for Friday night, but could move us up to the Penthouse (as originally planned) for the second night. For our situation, this was going to be just fine. I explained to David how thankful I was that he had informed me and was offering to further help us out since it was our wedding weekend and I didn't have time (or the patience!) to find another accommodation. In the end, David was more than generous and gave us a free nights stay for the stress/hassle (hardly) and a bottle of champagne in celebration of our marriage. He also had some helpers come assist us to move all our belongings upstairs to the Penthouse when the space was free on Saturday morning (doing this because we were also getting ready for our wedding that was to take place that afternoon). Lastly, during conversation at check-in, it came up that we had inadvertently left a table we needed for the wedding back in our hometown. David walked us over to his personal home (nearby) and allowed us to pick out and use one of his tables from his home...then had someone load it into our truck for transport. I can't tell you how kind he was throughout our entire experience.

The icing on the cake is that the home is GORGEOUS, beautiful views...everything and anything you would need in a wonderful Santa Barbara weekend (or longer!). We will be back, no doubt.

Thanks David.

The Best VRBO ever!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the penthouse for 5 days in July. We have stayed in a lot of VRBO units and this one was the first to exceed the pictures and description! It is absolutely lovely and the owners are the most accommodating we have ever encountered. I would love to go back every year!

Goregous. I want to live there!

I am a little delayed in writing this review but felt like I needed to give credit where credit is due. This property is AWESOME! My husband and I rented the Penthouse unit and OMG!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVED!! It was beautifully decorated, super clean, and spacious. To make this review a quick read, here are the pros and cons to the unit:
Pros: Clean, spacious, beautifully decorated, 2 bathrooms!!!, great water pressure in the shower, ridiculously comfy bed/linens, fabulous bath towels (I want them!), safe neighborhood, and wonderful views. There is a lot more but you will just have to see for yourself.
Cons: small parking space (rent a small car!). And that's it. No other cons.
Honestly, this place is great. Stop researching other places and just book it with David. He is super easy to work with and gave great recommendations for restaurants when we met with him. Thanks again, David! We can't wait to come back and stay at your Penthouse Suite again.

Clean, comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5
This review is for the Junior Studio Suite.

We arrived late on Friday night of Memorial Day weekend, and David was there to greet us and walk us through the property.

The room was exactly what we needed: clean, comfortable and convenient. It looked like the property had been recently renovated. All the amenities we needed were there, plus some: hotel-grade towels, hairdryer, iron/ironing board, coffee maker, microwave oven and small fridge/freezer. Wifi is also available on site.

The bed was incredibly comfortable. I easily had some of the most restful nights' sleep while I was there.

We brought our bikes with us, and David graciously let us park them in the garage for safekeeping.

It's a 5 minute bike ride to the beach and to downtown.

When we go back up to Santa Barbara, it's a given that we'll be booking here again.
