Excellent Week

  • 5 of 5
My husband, dog and I enjoyed 7 nights in the Poolside Cottage. I have never seen my dog so comfortable in a new space as this cottage. The grounds are just beautiful and so relaxing. We never took the time to go into the pool or hot tub (actually it was only warm the last 2 days of our stay). We never heard any sounds at night. We felt very secure within the compound. The area is just lovey, with quiet roads to walk. I was so impressed with the laundry facilities--two LG steam washers and LG dryers. I was really excited to get clean clothes. My husband played golf at the Sandpiper in Goleta while the dog and I shopped on State Street (Saks and Nordstrom are dog friendly). We were highly disappointed with Pierre Lafond nearby to the point we sent our pizza back (probably the worst pizza we have ever eaten). But we did enjoy Carlitos on State Street (with a lovely outdoor dog friendly patio and easy parking) and Stellas in Santa Barbara. Last year, we stayed at the Four Seasons Biltmore and prefer the Poolside cottage--no train whistles and less money. Reading was difficult and the cottage needs brighter light bulbs (but that is our only minor complaint). We would definitely stay again.

Wonderful stay

We stayed in the pool side house and had a wonderful time. The weather was warm, but having the pool there was perfect.

I would recommend this property to my family and friends.

Carla's Cozy Cottage

Carla's Cozy Cottage
  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a special place to celebrate my birthday while traveling to care for ill parents. We also needed this place to be pet-friendly. Our hostess Carla was absolutely wonderful and her cottages are beautiful and immaculate. The grounds are beautiful and private. The Cozy Cottage is part of a large estate with a beautiful pool and spa. It was raining while we were there so we didn't have the opportunity to utilize those particular facilities. The cottage had a full kitchen, living room, bath, and a large bedroom and a walk-in closet across from the bath. Both the livingroom and bedroom open out to a fairly private patio and lawn with lovely old growth landscaping. Carla made sure we had all we needed and gave us our privacy. The property is truly pet friendly and close to recreation areas, shopping, grocery stores, and restaurants. As well, it is only a few miles to the beach. We would love to return.

May at Poolside

  • 5 of 5
My husband, small baby and family dog all stayed at the poolside cottage for the month of May. This place is a gem and even better than we imagined! Carla is a wonderful hostess, the property is private and serene, the cottage is cozy and functional and the location can't be beat. We did not want to leave! It is an excellent value and we would love to return!

Beautiful vacation stay - this place has everything !!

We loved our stay at Carla's Cottages - everything was perfect and Carla and David were very gracious hosts - we would go back anytime ! The property is every bit as beautiful as it looks in the pictures - it's like being in a tropical garden yet only 10 minutes from Santa Barbara downtown.

A glorious new year!

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I were looking for a quiet getaway after the whirlwind of the Christmas season. Carla's place was the perfect choice! The property and house was very well kept, and the neighborhood was nice and quiet. We had such a lovely time that we did not want to leave! We especially loved the fireplace, the full kitchen, and there was even a Christmas tree which made our stay extra cozy. We will be back in the summer so we can make better use of the pool! And then maybe again for this new year to make it our tradition.
