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

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.

If I could pick a home to live in this would be it

Review submitted: February 17, 2014   Date of arrival: February 5, 2014

Amy has done it again!
My husband and I have visited Ca. the past 3 years because we love it there.The first 2 years we stayed in delightful cottages owned and decorated by Amy . (She' great to work with by the way, ) and have been more than pleased. On finding she had a new remake in Santa Barbara we were delighted. This home is everything the pictures show and more. It is spacious but cozy.Super
comfy and with the warm sunny glow you can't help but to feel happy. In fact
the dining room is so charming we decided to eat most of our meals in. We have been so inspired by Amy's french country decorating and landscaping
we have put Provence France on our bucket list. We were so relaxed in this peaceful setting that we didn't spend much time in the delightful downtown,
so we will be back next year for a longer stay and bring friends to share this with..

Owners response: Thank you so much for your lovely comments. I hope you will stay in either this home in Santa Barbara 'Maison Provence', or one of my two cottages in Carmel-By-The-Sea 'Pussy Willow Cottage' or 'Dove Cottage', the next time you visit California.

Charming Retreat in Sunny Santa Barbara

Review submitted: February 15, 2014   Date of arrival: February 3, 2014

This is a beautiful house that really feels like an elegant home. The attention to detail is impressive, and the owner has decorated each room so tastefully. I came for a girls' break with my sister, and we picked up all kinds of ideas for decorating our own homes. The morning light is beautiful in the house and we really enjoyed relaxing and hanging out together here. State st is very close by, for shopping and restaurants, but we found it hard to tear ourselves away. Merci beaucoup!

Owners response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at Maison Provence. Thank you for your lovely review and I hope you'll come again.
