Perfectly Charming

Review submitted: April 4, 2012   Date of arrival: March 30, 2012

What an incredible place to stay. This was far better than a hotel stay and a great location. There is ample room for everyone and the common area is very comfortable as well. The kitchen may not be modern, and that's ok, because it is equipped with everything you need to make simple meals. This place took me back to the days when I would visit my grandparents at their home ... very much the same warm feelings right when I walked through the door. The place was clean and the linens were superb. Downtown was just blocks away and once we got there we really didn't need to drive anywhere. The bus routes were very easy to follow as well.

I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to spend a long weekend or longer.

Santa barbara rental

Review submitted: January 3, 2012   Date of arrival: December 23, 2011

Booking the home was very easy. Kate is one of the friendliest people i have talked to . She is very prompt in her replies and also very helpful .

About the home :

It is a very cozy nice home . Kitchen was very well stocked with utensils and other necessities. It is quite close to downtown . There is outdoor seating and a grill too.

We ran into a coupld of hiccups :

1) The master suite did not have any central heating . And there were no space heaters in the home the first night. So the room was pretty cold since it was december and we had small kids. But Kate immediately provided a space heater as soon as i talked to her the next morning . She is really very prompt.

2) We noticed a lot of bugs in the master bedroom . Looked like lady bugs. They were crawling close to the ceiling . Kate mentioned they are usually outside the house and the house is treated periodically for them . SInce we had little kids we were a little concerned


Overall we were happy with the home and would stay there again .

Recommended for: families with young children, sight seeing

Owners response: I do thank my tenant for her kind review! Rest assured, the suite was an add-on... new and very nice. The space heater is our remedy! As for the comment on the critters, tends to be in the winter and the home is treated every 90 days for all such critters! I do hope to hear from you in hopes that you come and stay!

Kindly,

Kate
