Guestbook comments from the owner

Our Girls Weekend in Santa Barbara was so incredibly fun! We felt so comfortable in this place. The running joke was that we all want to permanently move in! :)

The decor and set-up is beautiful. Thank you for being so accommodating. We had the best time ever!

Lovely guesthouse

  • 5 of 5
We are so glad we found this place to stay. We brought our young children with us to spend a few days at the beach. Everything was perfect. The owners were so nice. They had everything ready for us, even a high chair for my infant. The place was very clean, perfectly stocked, and beautifully decorated. It's just a 2 minute walk to the beach or to a little grocery store. It's just a great location. We loved Santa Barbara. We wanted to go somewhere away from crowds and this was the perfect place for us.

Wonderful Stay in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5
Enjoyed our month-long stay at Soul and Sea apartment. Clean, minimalist, modern decor. Updated apartment offered a beautiful, well-stocked kitchen and bathroom with lovely bath products. Comfortable beds with high quality linens. Walkable to East Beach, the Zoo and Tri County Produce for fresh veggies, homemade breads and just about anything you'd need to enjoy meals at home. This vacation rental is one of eight apartments in the complex. The other seven units are full time renters whom we found to be very friendly and helpful. Communication with Trace and Heather was excellent from the beginning of the rental process throughout the time we stayed in Santa Barbara.

Great comfortable location in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5
We spent a very pleasant month in Soul and Sea. It is very clean, recently renovated, modern condo, pleasing decor, well equipped kitchen. Very comfortable beds, plenty of quality linens. Quiet location. You can hear distant traffic, but not unpleasant. Nice, small grocery about 2 blocks away. Very easy to use the local free shuttle, but even better to walk along the beach promenade. 5 minutes from the beach. Easy walking distance to the stop for the Airbus to/from LAX. Owners were easy to reach and quick to respond when we had a minor difficulty with a smoke alarm.

Great holiday stay in SB!

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful 4 night stay in Soul and Sea! Location is close to the beach and downtown. The guesthouse was clean, modern and very comfortable for the 3 of us. Trace and Heather were great to work with and helpful upon our check-in. It was a much better experience than staying in a hotel. Will be back!

Very comfortable, great location

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the Soul and Sea Guesthouse. The location is close to the beach and to State Street. The owner was very helpful in providing restaurant and other good information prior to arrival. Although the complex is older, the kitchen and bathroom have been renovated with high end finishes and appliances. My only constructive suggestion would be to add a microwave and a regular toaster. Although there was a toaster oven there. The beds had nice linens and were very comfortable. Both bedrooms had TV's in them which we appreciated. Although there was only one bath, it was very spacious. We had no problems sharing it with the other couple we traveled with. We had a great stay there while enjoying all Santa Barbara has to offer.
