GUEST COMMENTS FROM TRIPADVISOR . COM
'Perfect 'Home-from-Home' for a Family Vacation in SB' July 2012
The location is great (close to Downtown and the beach yet in a quiet residential area up on Mesa with a great view of the mountains) as are the house and lot (very family friendly with enclosed back yard, ping-pong table, hot tub etc.). Truly 'Home-from-Home'. - Cathal, Denmark
'Home away from home...but in Santa Barbara' March 2012
We rented the house for a week during which our daughter got married. So comfortable and spacious. The house and yards couldn't have been more wonderful for ourselves, the kids with us, and family and friends who visited. The home is complete with everything you need...and more. Ping pong and the hot tub were particular big hits. And fenced yard for our dog! - Bonnie and Ric, Bay Area
'Charming...just perfect!' March 2011
Really nice, cozy place with a great kitchen and toys and movies for the kids. My wife was happy the kitchen had a window to the yard where the kids played so she could cook and they could play. We played ping pong almost every day and liked having a hot tub too. I liked the wireless Internet - was able to take a couple more days vacation that way. We walked to Hilda Rae Park a couple times (took five minutes) where they had great views of the city and good play structure for our five year old. Thank you! - Scott and Judy Mae
'Pleasantly Surprised' December 2010
We had never vacationed using a vac home and we were really happy with what we landed. The house was in a quiet neighborhood and the way the house sits, we didn't have any neighbors, yet we were in a neighborhood. We loved the views (wow!) and the gated yard for our toddler was perfect. She loved the hot wheels car and the dvds. The beds were comfortable and the home was really well-stocked in the linens and kitchen department.
Thanks Lynn and Scott, we'll be back. - Gay and Tom Sheegay, Boise
'Cute, Nice Views' October 2009
We loved this cottage! Just girls for this trip and it was a perfect location. Had fun playing board games, sitting on the patio watching the sunset and bbq'ing. They have a good collection of DVDs. It was%

Comment from TripAdvisor.com:
"We love our February home-away-from-home on Calle Cortita in Santa Barbara. We especially love the location of this small house, in the hills overlooking the city of Santa Barbara. We love getting away from Wisconsin winters and living in Santa Barbara in a neighborhood where we can walk to wonderful stores, to the Ocean, downtown for lunch. We love winter walking without worries about ice and snow. We love looking at the sky over the mountains as we sit at the breakfast table in the mornings. We love the patio at our little house in the hills. This is our Feb. home."
“The view and the proximity to downtown, the beach and all that's amazing about the city.”
