Beautiful Home and Personalized Service

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I took my Mom up to Santa Barbara last weekend for an early Mothers Day Trip. Mom had never been so it was a quick 90 minute drive from L.A. to this beautiful home we stayed in. Gonzalo the property manager met us and gave us the key and showed us the place. He was so kind and answered all of our questions. The rental was modern with a nice kitchen area, living room area, and most important to me nice comfortable beds with good bedding. We're talking 500++ thread count sheets! Our favorite part was the front porch which is private and has a table and chairs to sit out on and drink wine and eat nibbles. The home is only a 5 block walk to State street. We didn't need to drive anywhere from the house. David the owner was very easy to work with as well. He answered all of my questions and made the rental transaction easy. I must end on a personal note. When the 3 of us got back to the house after our 1st day exploring Santa Barbara on the doorstep was a beautiful arrangement of flowers that Gonzalo had picked for my Mom with a nice note. It was really touching and made my Mom so happy. We would definitely stay at this rental again and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Santa Barbara or the surrounding areas. Thank you Gonzalo & David!

Great unt

  • 5 of 5
My wife and 2 children (age 30 months and 15 months) were visiting Santa Barbara to get out of the house for a few days. This unit was so nice - clean, quiet and close to a lot of the sights. David (the owner) and Gonzalo (the manager) were very helpful and gave great advice for checking out the town. Highly recommended.

Amazing rental and amazing owner!

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect with a cute patio for our morning coffee. It was close to everything we wanted to do. Most of the time we just walked or used uber to get our destination. The house was super clean and the owner and Gonzalo were so helpful and attentive. I will definitely be back and when I do I know exactly where I will rent again.

Excellent Rental

  • 5 of 5
We were in Santa Barbara for the weekend for a wedding and needed a place to stay that would accommodate our family of 4 (2 small children) plus my mother in law. Renting a home was a better option than a hotel room and I am so glad we found this place. We also rented the Jr. Suite for my parents who were also attending the wedding. The location to downtown was great, the place was super cute and quiet, the beds were comfy, and most importantly the place was CLEAN!
I own a vacation rental myself and I appreciated the owners attention to detail and cleanliness. I have also stayed at many vacation rentals and this by far has been the best. You can't go wrong here.

Nice place with a very helpful owner

  • 5 of 5
Very pleasant and clean house in a nice neighbourhood. The patio is private and has a nice view of the mountains. We spent most of our time out there. David, the owner, was more than helpful. He recommended 3 restaurants to us and all of them were perfect (very good food without spending a fortune). He also saved us from a parking ticket which was greatly appreciated. If I ever go back to Santa Barbara, I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect location, charming rental

  • 5 of 5
This is one of the nicest condo rentals by owner we have stayed in. It is well-appointed with high quality furniture & appliances, comfortable beds, a beautiful bathroom and the view of the surrounding hills of Santa Barbara are amazing! Our favorite place was the delightful patio where we ate all our meals and enjoyed relaxing in the beautiful California sunshine surrounded by a beautiful garden. The condo is within walking distance of State Street shops and restaurants, provides easy access to highways, and is in a lovely, safe area. The owner was very helpful and responsive to all our questions - we highly recommend this condo for your next stay in Santa Barbara.

From the Owner

I fell in love with the property based on its location and potential. An original 1919 Craftsman house, I have spent the past 13 years rebuilding and expanding as a historic reconstruction. Keeping the historic charm but also adding the conveniences and cleaniness of a modern property.
