Guest Comments:

"Oak Park Cottage is clean, cozy and very private. The Cottage was well-appointed; during the quite cool weather during a rare Santa Barbara 'storm' we enjoyed using the fireplace and watching movies on the HDTV. The location permits easy access to the Mission and to the beaches in the area. Absolutely lovely!!" NCB, Urbana, IL, Oct. '09

"Wendy, thank you very much for the wonderful accomodations. Everything was just as we expected and more!" Stephanie E., Los Angeles, CA, Sept. '09

"Great location, great furniture and grounds. House had everything we needed, very comfortable." Brian G., Austin, TX, Aug. '09

Heart of Santa Barbara

Review submitted: April 2, 2014   Date of arrival: March 18, 2014

"Heart of Santa Barbara"
This is our second time renting this charming home.
Wendy is so helpful and quickly responded to
our phone call. The house is truly in the heart of
Santa Barbara... Minutes from the beach, state street and
restaurants. We felt at home in this Craftmans
Style house with its old wood floors, and vintage windows
and doors. We will be back and highly recommend.

Lovely, Quiet Home

Review submitted: December 5, 2013   Date of arrival: November 26, 2013

Lovely two bedroom house in a quiet part of Santa Barbara, it had all the facilities I needed and especially liked the washer and dryer. Wendy was great to deal with and I would like to thank her for quick responses via email and sorting us out last minute after being let down by another owner. Would definitely recommend this property with its two double bedrooms and well stocked kitchen. Will hopefully be stopping again. Thanks

Highly Recommended Retreat

Review submitted: October 3, 2013   Date of arrival: September 18, 2013

We spent a week at This Santa Barbara Craftsman Cottage in September. Everything was welcoming from the moment we arrived. The cottage is very private, quiet and wonderful to return to after a day on the beach or a day wine tasting. The linens were luxurious and the beds comfortable. I would recommend this retreat for anyone visiting Santa Barbara.
