traveler reviews for this santa barbara house rental

Super vacation spot. Great location!

Review submitted: August 27, 2014   Date of arrival: August 14, 2014

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at Lilyhaven, joined by a daughter, son-in-law and toddler, plus another adult daughter and her boyfriend. Each bedroom had its own bathroom with plenty of towels and toiletries. The house was spacious, spotless, and extremely well-equipped -- an important factor for us as we enjoyed cooking/grilling/eating in most evenings once our (exhausted!) grandson was in bed. We loved the sitting area in the kitchen with double doors that opened onto the little deck and back garden. What a pleasure to sit there watching the hummingbirds and butterflies -- not to mention the avocados falling from the tree!! We especially appreciated little details including very clear instructions for finding the lockbox, how to work the coffee maker, WiFi, nearby supermarkets etc. The house is super-convenient -- walking distance from town and easy on/off Rte 101. A five-star experience all round!

Quaint older home in great location Santa Barbara

Review submitted: August 15, 2014   Date of arrival: July 27, 2014

We had a great stay at Lilyhaven. It is an older home in a quiet neighborhood that is centrally located in Santa Barbara. The home is very clean and in good shape and has a very nice ambience. The value for the cost of the rental when compared to other properties in Santa Barbara is exceptional. The beds were very comfortable. During our visit, it was quite warm and we had to open up the house and use fans that were provided in every room to keep the home comfortable. The back yard is very nice and the home is well-stocked with everything you need for your stay. The seating area in the living room around the TV seats 5 comfortably while the home can accommodate up to 9 people comfortably. The owners were very good to work with and provided assistance when requested. For good Mexican food, go to the Los Agaves restaurant which is nearby. Other great restaurants were Brophy Brothers at the Harbor and the Beach House at Hendry Beach for seafood and a really interesting restaurant for California/Peruvian food is at the Indigo Hotel near the wharf. All in all, we had a great stay and will choose to rent this property again in the future.

Above & Beyond a Typical Vacation Home

Review submitted: July 10, 2014   Date of arrival: June 28, 2014

The house & surrounding gardens were above & beyond the typical vacation home we've rented previously. Every amenity was provided--including butterflies flitting among the many colorful flowers. It was such a pleasure to return to this peaceful & lovely oasis after a busy day of exploring the sights & attractions of the Santa Barbara area.
