vacation rental description

This Charming Hillside Cottage is nestled on a hillside, up a rustic 1/4 mile drive from a quiet neighborhood, that winds through an oak grove leading to our little paradise. We are surrounded by oaks and kentia palms, with spectacular mountain and city views. This guest cottage is private, and detached from our family home. We are 5 minutes from the beach and 5 minutes from downtown. Though we are on the 'upper' west side not far from the mesa, the property is very different from any residence around it, as it is in its own little 5 acre pocket in between 2 neighborhoods - the west side and Bel Air Knolls, but doesn't look like either one.

The cozy bedroom has french windows that look out into a garden area, a king bed, Ethan Allen desk, and a soft comfy chair.

The spacious sitting room converts to sleep 4, with a full sized loft bed, and a full, very comfy futon/sofa. The loft bed has a beautiful mountain view.

The redwood deck overlooks the hillside, and has a lovely eating area, a bbq, and a private hot tub.

Though we are in a very private setting, we are conveniently located in the city - a secret little pocket that overlooks Santa Barbara - and only a short drive to the beach and to downtown shopping.

traveler reviews for this santa barbara cottage rental

Unique elevated cottage in natural surroundings yet close to town and beach.

Review submitted: August 1, 2014   Date of arrival: June 16, 2014

We loved our four day stay in this old wooden house on a wooded slope to the West of the beautiful and interesting town of Santa Barbara, with its historical sites, excellent beaches and nearby forest trails.
The air was clean and we ate nearly all our meals outside: breakfast on the driveway to the east of the cottage and other meals on the private wooden veranda at the other side. The views were terrific. At night we saw skunks - cute looking animals that we don't get in the UK. Happily, we didn't smell them!
The beds and bathroom facilities were clean, comfortable and all that we could have wished for at this price in Santa Barbara.
The kitchen is compact, but most of our cooking was done on the very convenient gas barbecue on the veranda.
Sharon was extremely hospitable and easy to communicate with before our stay. I was only sorry that she had to leave the day after we arrived, as I would have liked to talk to her more. In her absence, her children also went out of their way to help us.
We felt trusted and would trust Sharon and her family with our own home if they ever came our way.

Cozy and clean cottage in an excellent location

Review submitted: March 9, 2014   Date of arrival: February 14, 2014

We wanted a property that we could bring our dog to and this is a perfect spot very quiet and safe. The owner is very helpful and didn't mind when our dog ran into her house looking for treats. Our dog enjoyed playtime with their two dogs as well. The location is very close to every thing in Santa Barbara yet because the property is 5 acres you feel if you are staying in the country. The cottage is clean, comfortable and has everything you could need including a hot tub and great patio. We ate in every night and the kitchen is a little small but manageable it is probably more suitable for people who just want to BBQ or microwave. We would recommend the cottage to anyone looking for quiet and convenient place to stay in Santa Barbara.

Wonderful stay

Review submitted: April 9, 2013   Date of arrival: March 26, 2013

My husband and I had a wonderful visit in Santa Barbara while staying in this cottage. We have stayed at various hotels in the area, however this was our first time staying at a VRBO property in SB. This is where we will return to in the future...pending it's availability.
The setting, up a beautifully lush driveway to the top of a hill is amazing! Although the main home is nearby, you truly feel as though it is your own secret hideout!
The cottage is tastefully decorated with calming color combinations and a charming, eclectic touch. Sharon, the owner is beyond gracious and welcoming. It was fun to visit with her and to meet the sweet dogs and kitties!
The view, hot tub, incredible setting and fun and caring owner made for a restful visit. We look forward to returning again soon.
