"Luxury Getaway in Comfortable Home"

Review submitted: March 26, 2014   Date of arrival: January 10, 2014

We had a wonderful second stay here. It is the only holiday rental we have ever revisited, and will certainly return. It may not be the cheapest option, but still good value bearing in mind the high spec fittings, we'll kept garden and great location. Wendy has always been extremely efficient, and friendly. Santa Barbara itself is a great location, good shops and some great national parks and lakes a short drive away. Although we are just a couple, families would have loads of living space, in the huge living room. This is a true home from home and would thoroughly recommend a stay here.

"Santa Barbara 4 Month Getaway"

Review submitted: March 26, 2014   Date of arrival: January 3, 2014

My family and I stayed in Secret Garden Hideaway for four months and we loved it. Wendy, the landlady, was always available and helpful. It is close to everything downtown: shopping, dining, exploring; as well as close to the beach. We loved our experience here. We also had visitors (special permission from owner) for the holidays and one thing we really appreciated was that all bedrooms were very secluded from the main living space. All of the bedrooms have their own bathrooms and even with a full house we didn't feel like we were on top of each other. We would definitely recommend planning your stay here!

"Great Family Get Together"

Review submitted: March 26, 2014   Date of arrival: July 28, 2013

Our adult children, and grandchild, live in distant cities. We all gathered at the Secret Garden for a
week and had a wonderful time. The house was large enough, and everyone had their own area, and bathroom.
We loved the Oak Park three blocks away for our five year old. Everything else was convenient for nice
walks. We hope to come back again.
