What a former Guest says about the Hourglass:

"The Hourglass is the most lovely place to stay! Nestled in Mission Canyon, you feel like you are

away from the city, yet you are only a few minutes - walking, biking or driving - from so many

beautiful Santa Barbara sights! In addition to the beautiful, high quality interior and design of

this amazing one bedroom hide-away, the Hourglass comes fully equipped with everything you can imagine you might need during your stay. Too many items to list! You will not be disappointed.

There is a lovely deck outside the front and bedroom doors overlooking the canyon, including your own private patio, with patio table and chairs, private "always hot" hot tub, bbq, and lounge chairs for soaking up the warm SB sun. All you need to bring is your suitcase and you're ready for the most fabulous Santa Barbara visit of your life! I highly recommend this property to friends, family and professional acquaintances.

The property owner, Wendy, is very professional, detail-oriented, and is so wonderful to work with. I absolutely look forward to my next stay at the Hourglass! Enjoy" Susie

S., Goleta, CA December2007-May 2008

"A wonderful place to stay on the last leg of our California vacation. The Hourglass is very comfortable and thoughtfully equipped--we really loved the hot tub! We will hopefully return someday soon!" Steve C., Doncaster, England, Sept. '09

"The Hourglass was the perfect accomodation for the two of us. Everything that we needed was provided. The area's quiet provided time for relaxation after a day of exlporing the area. If we return to Santa Barbara in the future, we would be pleased to stay at your property again. Thank you!" Wendy G., York, PA, Nov. '09

Guestbook comments from the manager

"A peaceful, private, haven."

My husband and I grew up in Santa Barbara.

We came for a 3 week respite.

Wendy is a wonderful hostess, and made our stay fantastic.

The hourglass was exactly what we needed!

Looking out the kitchen window you can see hummingbirds and scrubjays. Hearing the birds sing and the scent of lemon

trees, blowing through the window was so refreshing. The mountain views are great. Botanic Gardens is right up the street and well worth the $8:00 cover charge.

We will be back.
