Modern, well-appointed condo in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
We were thrilled with our stay at the Soul and Sea Guesthouse! The owners provided an incredible amount of information prior to our stay and gave great suggestions for restaurants and activities and all were so helpful in planning out trip. The condo is beautiful and all of the amenities are well-designed, beautiful and luxurious. The location is perfect, being a mere minute from the freeway, 1 block from the ocean and a short walk or drive to all of the hot spots. We loved our stay here and will definitely be staying again on our next visit to Santa Barbara!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5
No detail is overlooked in this beautiful, ideally located condo. The owners have thoughtfully made these 850 square feet feel like 1500. My husband and I traveled with our three teenagers ages 17, 15 and 14 and never felt cramped. Trace and Heather have gone above and beyond with the amenities and with their helpful suggestions. This was a perfect place to stay and enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful town of Santa Barbara. We enjoyed every minute of it, and hope to return soon.

Charming and updated apt. close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5
We were very happy with our darling VRBO - the apt. had been totally updated with new kitchen/appliances and bathroom. The updates and amenities were of the latest in-style features. The furnishings were very comfortable, modern and a coast theme. Was nice to have a TV in each bedroom plus the living area, with a DVR. The beach was one block away, so we could walk or ride bikes easily there. The landlord was very nice, as well. I would give it a 5-star if it had air condition. We are from Texas and used to the heat but also like having a/c though the weather was nice and was fairly comfortable in the rooms, and there were portable high powered fans. Just wish we had a few more days to enjoy SB and cook in the adorable kitchen. This home could be featured in Coastal Living!

Great girls weekend.

  • 4 of 5
Enjoyed our stay in Santa Barbara for the wine festival. Location was great for walking to beach or catching the trolley to the State Street area for shopping and restaurants. Great breeze through the condo which kept the temperature pleasant, but there was some traffic noise from the freeway. If you are a light sleeper, bring some ear plugs if you keep the windows open at night. The condo was much roomier than expected with a well stocked kitchen and a beautiful bathroom. Our group of 4 girls could have used a little more seating in the living room area, but there is and outside patio downstairs too sit outside for coffee or cocktail hour. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

Owner's Response: Dear Christina,

Thank you so much for your helpful review. The topography of Santa Barbara routes the 101 parallel with the ocean. It's inevitable that properties within walking distance to the beach have some traffic noise. Everyone's tolerance of noise be it traffic, live music, or sporting events, varies. Depending on where you live, and what you’re accustomed to. We wouldn't want you to feel disturbed for a single minute over your concern about noise during your holiday and only wish we could have anticipated this disturbance to you in advance. We have purchased some fans from Restoration Hardware, which offer a white noise solution that will be helpful in the future.

Regarding the furnishings ~ we only wish you'd contacted us about needing additional seating in the living room. Had we known, we would have been happy to bring in extra furniture.
We are only a text away. :)

Cheers & best ~

Trace
