vacation rental description

Furnished with French antiques and retaining the original arches, open beams and other period details, you will feel like you've stepped into a maison in the south of France.

Set in a quiet residential neighborhood, this home is a peaceful retreat, with several outdoor seating areas around the property. However, it is conveniently located downtown between State Street and the beach.

Being a designer and Francophile, I furnished this home with French antiques, custom made furniture, linen curtains and fine bed linens. It is fully equipped with everything you should need during your stay. Luxurious and comfortable, it personifies casual elegance.

The climate in Santa Barbara is mild and warm year round, making it a wonderful place to spend time during the winter months. And it's centrally located for guests who also want to drive along the beautiful California coastline, along Big Sur to Carmel-By-The-Sea.

If you also plan to visit Carmel, I have two lovely homes in the heart of the village (Dove Cottage and Pussy Willow Cottage), where you may want to stay.

traveler reviews for this santa barbara house rental

Wonderful!

Review submitted: August 27, 2014   Date of arrival: July 13, 2014

For a month I was at Maison Provence and I did not want to leave. What a masterful job Amy did in creating such a charming and very tasteful home. As an interior designer myself, I am very aware of my surroundings, and Amy is truly talented. Her attention to detail, furnishings, plants, artwork, kitchen accessories, was done with great care.
I thank her for sharing her home and ability with us.

Owners response: Thank you Gloria for your lovely review. I hope you can come and stay again next year.

Lovely place, with caveats

Review submitted: August 1, 2014   Date of arrival: July 3, 2014

We liked the house very much, nice outdoor patio next to the house (the one in the back needed a little more attention); loved the tangerine tree and the artichoke plants and other plantings. The rooms were nice (but inadequate air flow in the middle bedroom). The neighborhood was lovely, but what we didn't know was that the home next door was being remodeled and some of the workers were there after 10pm - a lot of dust and noise came from the other side of the fence. Not only that, a dog was on site that was left alone outside for several hours and howled and whined continually. Home convenient to core of the city but you get to be in a residential area.

Enchanting Country House

Review submitted: February 26, 2014   Date of arrival: February 1, 2014

Absolutely beautifully decorated home away from home. We decided to take a girls trip up here and did not want to leave. This house was exquisite and was hard to prize ourselves away to see the other sites of Santa Barbra. With the beautiful natural light beaming through the house by day and the roaring fire place by night, most evenings we would stay home,cook and curl up by the fire place. We will be back very soon.

Owners response: I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself. I hope you'll spend time at Maison Provence before too long, as it's a short drive form Los Angeles.
