About the Owner

We are a family of 6. We lived here after we got married and before we had kids. We now live in Huntington Beach and visit as much as we can. We can't wait to move back to Santa Barbara. We are so happy to open up our home so other can take in and enjoy the beauty of Santa Barbara.

I enjoyed my stay at the unit we rented for my son's graduation weekend. The unit was cozy and equipped with all necessities. It was a very pleasant stay.
Thank you,

Lovely & charming home

Daniel is a great host and the home is very beautiful with natural sunlight. It fit a group of 5 girls easily, even with one bathroom. The bath curtain needs some tending to (it fell down on a few occasions,) but nothing else was out of the ordinary. It is a short drive from State Street and located on a quiet street. Dan's neighbor is also very friendly and helpful.

We really enjoyed our time at this lovely home. Great views, comfy beds, very clean and neat. Perfect for 2 couples and a single on the futon. Host was thoughtful to leave shampoo and conditioners, like a hotel. Whole process was very easy and enjoyable.

SB style with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriends and I rented this property for a girls' weekend in SB. I lived in SB for 7 years, and I absolutely loved this place. It had a perfect SB vibe - simple, roomy in the shared spaces, and with its own personality. By far the best feature is the french doors which open to a spacious balcony. There is also a view from the dining table. We did not do any cooking at the house, but the kitchen was well supplied with everything you could need. Also, plenty of sheets and towels for however many people you had (we had 6 total). Even with a gorgeous view, if you were up for a bit of a walk you could get to State Street on foot. For the night life, we just took a quick cab ride there and back.

We greatly appreciated the ease of check-in and check-out, also. The property was very clean, and it was even more beautiful than the photos! We all agreed we would love to come back and stay at the same house! I think just about anyone would enjoy this rental, but probably would be most appreciated by a group of girls, or a few couples for a romantic weekend.

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
This Santa Barbara apartment was the perfect haven for our family's visit to the area. It was beautifully clean, comfortable, well equipped and charming with fabulous views.
The space suited all of us - a family ranging from 5 months old to 65.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5
My group and I recently took a trip to Santa Barbara. In terms of location, this home is close to major shopping and the beach. Everything was provided from towels to utensils to beach chairs, so we did not need to bring much of our own. The balcony has a pretty view, definitely a plus when waking up in the morning. The owner was very helpful as it was my first time renting and I would recommend this charming vacation rental!
