traveler reviews for this santa barbara house rental

Mission Creek Vacation

Review submitted: April 12, 2014   Date of arrival: January 20, 2014

We spent two wonderful months and Mission Creek was everything we wanted. Patti and Dave were great hosts. We found the house perfect for our needs. The extra bedroom was also great for our out of town guests. And what a great way to start the day with coffee and breakfast overlooking the garden and pond. It is less than 10 minutes to downtown yet we felt very secluded. Right across the street is the Botanical Gardens which we walked frequently. We couldn't ask for a better location.
Thanks Dave and Patti for a great winter.

Beautiful Place

Review submitted: April 5, 2014   Date of arrival: March 23, 2014

We spent 9 days in this house as home base for our vacation in Santa Barbara. We loved the place! I originally wanted to rent a house with an ocean view, but my wife convinced me to try something new. As usual, she was right. The house and the grounds are both beautiful and top notch. Situated on a creek in Mission Canyon, you are surrounded by huge trees; but the house is bright and cheerful due to its many skylights and large picture windows. It's a house that really brings the outdoors in; which is wonderful, since the gardens are a work of art. We loved eating in the "nook" and watching the waterfall and the Koi swim back and forth. The clivia was in bloom while we were there, which added a lot of color to the yard. The house is spacious and equipped with everything you need for cooking (including spices). Original art hangs throughout, with nice decor pieces everywhere. The beds were firm and comfortable. There is even a large fenced area for dogs, which our Welsh Terrier loved. This is a really nice place and we will rent it again should we return to santa Barbara for another vacation. Thanks Dave and Patti for sharing your home with us.

Recommended for: age 55+, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: No, thank you Anne, Don and Daisy. We enjoyed your visit and getting acquainted. We look forward to your next visit.

Travelers with a dog

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

The reviews all capture the nature of this property well. My only complaint is that communication with the owner was very weak. I e-mailed several times before I left home requesting the property address. It wasn't until I placed a phone call the day before my arrival that I finally got it.

When we checked out, I inquired about getting my deposit back and was assured it would show up on my credit card. When two and a half weeks latter it still wasn't credited, I called the owner who said he would take care of it that week-end.

The poor communication detracted from an otherwise nice stay.
