traveler reviews for this santa barbara cottage rental

Great location and property

Review submitted: July 4, 2014   Date of arrival: June 11, 2014

Thank you for letting us stay at your Santa Barbara cottage it was the perfect place for 4 adults visiting Santa Barbara for the first time. The location is excellent and you were a perfect hostess responding to our needs. I would love to return, but next time with our dogs! My only suggestions would be to have a few more items on stock like toilet paper, coffee etc.

Owners response: Cassie: Oh my... I don't know where to begin. In regards to the toilet paper, as I mentioned to your husband when I brought you the extra roles, there are normally 3 extra rolls in the bathroom. That was simply a housekeeping oversight and I responded as soon as I was told of it! I wouldn't expect the four of you to survive for 3 days on one roll! I try so hard to go overboard and beyond the expected and predict what one might need to make a vacation seamless i.e. new slipper socks for cold feet, first aid kit, sewing kit, iron and board, baby or dog gate,dog sheets & towels, clothes steamer, blow dryer, shampoo/conditioner/soap, toothbrushes/paste,make-up removers, laundry detergent & spot removers,dog wipes, beach tar remover, aspirin, foot powder, rubbing alcohol, beach towels, extra blankets & pillows, water purifier, mixer, blender, assorted pots and pans, ice bucket, dishes/silverware,lemon squeezer, ice cream scooper, pot holders, cookie sheets/muffin pans etc, serving platters, bbq utensils, paper plates/plastic utin/napkins (even toothpicks), saran wrap/aluminum foil/baggies, flower vases, games and cards, scissors, scotch tape, rubber bands, lint remover, calculator, magnification mirror in bath and hand magnifier in kitchen, Santa Barbara City map, note pad and pen, candy, breath mints, local tourist guides and I even drive over and hand deliver the weekly magazine "Independent" that comes out on Thursdays! These items are additional items, most of which are not even mentioned in vrbo. In the "house instructions" in the drawer under the TV, I mention that if food products are used they should be replenished by the guest that uses them. I don't monitor or supply them. Over time the basics end up there such as salt, pepper, sugar, syrup, mustard, mayonnaise, oil, coffee, tea, jam, etc -most guests don't cook or even make coffee due to the proximity of all the coffee houses and restaurants. The non-perishable food products are just passed on to the next guest.
Well, I guess a prior guest used all the coffee and didn't replace it, I'm sorry about that. I am not sure what you meant by "etc" in your post???? I really don't know what else one might be expecting when they stay at a vacation rental. It is not a bed and breakfast and I can't cook anyway--you really don't want me bringing food! The toilet paper was an oversight which I remedied as soon as I was told about it, I apologize again for the oversite, housekeeping has been notified.

Review submitted: May 28, 2014   Date of arrival: May 25, 2014

I stayed at the Bungalulu property with my two best four legged friends. The property far exceeded my expectations and Mimi was simply wonderful to us while we were there. Being able to stay in such a gorgeous property with my dogs meant the world to me, it allowed me to relax in lovely surroundings but also be able to take them with me. Mimi is such a dog lover - dog bowls inside and out, toys, providing dog sheets for the sofas so if your dog is like mine and is used to the sofa at home doesn't have to be constantly told off here. The yard is fully fenced so I could relax and know that they were safe and couldn't escape. Mimi focuses on providing everything you would need to make your stay perfect and she also makes sure you know that she can be contacted for any need you might have. We cannot wait to return and wished we could have stayed longer.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, tourists without a car

Owners response: Melanie: I'm glad your getaway was a real "getaway". You and your beasty best friends were perfect guests. Do come back again soon, you are always welcome! Mimi

Perfect hidden cottage

Review submitted: May 10, 2014   Date of arrival: May 3, 2014

I stayed in "Bungalulu," a 1.5-br cottage located in the back of a classic SB property. It was an adorable and extremely dog-friendly place to call home for a few days. Mimi even provides "dog sheets" so that dogs can be on the furniture. The backyard is magical, and the location can't be beat - everything is walkable. A wonderful place! Thank you Mimi!!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Kaethin: Thank you for your visit and kind words. Phoebe is a doll, I will save her squeaky toy for her return visit. You both are welcome back anytime!
