It was perfect!!

  • 5 of 5
I was recently married in downtown Santa Barbara and staying at The Downtown Victorian could not have gone better. The house is in an incredible location and was so "homey" and perfect for me and my guests. Elle was great with communication and willing to go the extra mile to make sure everyone staying there felt welcome and cared for. We definitely plan on returning.

Location and size unbeatable!

  • 4 of 5
We rented the downtown Victorian for a combined family vacation and celebration of my daughter's graduation from UCSB. With a group that topped out at 14 when everyone was there it was difficult to find a home that would accommodate us all. The Downtown Victorian is an aging beauty and as such could use some updating both to the home and the furnishings (especially some of the beds like the one in the guest house which was very hard) but the location and the size/charm of the property make up for those shortcomings especially if you have a large group. We were able to walk to almost everywhere we wanted to eat and shop (probably walked distances up to 1.5 miles) including grocery and drug store less than five minutes away.

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5
My husband's family and I stayed in your Victorian Villa over the Memorial Day weekend. We were attending my stepdaughter's wedding in Montecito. I worried about the distance between the villa and the wedding venue but it was no problem at all, really very very close. The shopping and beach area was so close our guests could walk there, or take a run there and back. The house itself had everything we needed, even an iron for last minute preparation for our events. I stayed in the guest house, which was perfect for me and my husband. There was a room for everyone with their particular needs. We even made breakfast there one day, and that worked out well. Being Starbuck's addicts, we loved having one a block away, and visited there every day of our trip, YAY!!! Thank you for checking up on us too, that was super considerate. There were absolutely no complaints with the group at all.

Great Santa Barbara Experience for a Large Group

  • 4 of 5
Our bunco group (twelve women) take a weekend trip every year. The Santa Barbara Victorian was an excellent choice. Although the accommodations weren't on a 4 star hotel level, this Victorian house had the charm and amenities needed for our group. A beautiful dining room and 7 bedrooms held all of us comfortably. And the location! Just a few blocks from State Street with all the shopping, restaurants, and theaters. We never left the area, except to go down to the harbor area on Sunday for the arts and crafts walk. A grocery store (Ralphs) is just a block or so away. All in all, it was a perfect weekend. Thanks Lori!
