About the Owner

My husband and I love living in Santa Barbara, so really enjoy being able to give other families the same experience by renting out The Crestline house vacation rental. It's perfect for multi-generational gatherings, Wedding groups, reunions, and staff get-away retreats. The House is large and solidly built so people don't feel on top of each other. The huge pool, attached Jacuzzi and view allow families to relax in the sun and enjoy each other.

Perfect Group Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for a group of 12 adults down in santa barbra for a wedding. Close to downtown, beach and attractions, but was even better to just hang out at the house, relax in the pool and hot tub and relax.

Beautiful Home for a Large Group

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do the house justice! This is a large, well maintained home with a beautiful pool in a quiet neighborhood. It's just a mile in either direction to several shopping areas and overlooks Santa Barbara with views of the mountains and the Mission.

We had a large group that met here from various places in California and from out of state to celebrate my son's wedding in Santa Barbara. The house was very well equipped and we were able to easily prepare meals for a large group. The BBQ worked well and there were plenty of lounge chairs and pool towels to allow us to relax in the beautiful backyard and enjoy the amazing pool! All five of the bedrooms are good size rooms with huge closets. The linen closet is stocked with towels and linens to accommodate a large group and there's even a large capacity washer and dryer to use during an extended stay.

Hilary really went out of her way to provide all the amenities that are needed when traveling to a destination home. All that you need to do is bring your clothes and a toothbrush!

This vacation was an anniversary celebration and this home was perfect. The location is ideal in that it is close to the beach, a great park and the downtown Santa Barbara area and attractions. Upon arrival the house was very clean and complete with everything needed to have a great stay. We really enjoyed sitting on the patio in the late afternoon and early evening enjoying the pool, spa, view and weather. Hilary was easy to contact and answered all our questions completely and in a timely manner. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice place in the Santa Barbara area.

Spacious, Comfortable, Great View

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough positive things about this property. We traveled from the Bay Area to celebrate our children’s college graduations and had family coming and going throughout the week. The location is perfect – ten minutes from UCSB, close to downtown and Hendry’s beach. The house provided a clean, comfortable place for us to relax between activities. The view is beautiful and we spent most of our free time enjoying the back yard. Hilary is great to work with- Flexible and accommodating. I highly recommend this property for a vacation rental in the Santa Barbara area.

Three words: Location, location, and location!

  • 5 of 5

One has often heard of the phrase “Location, location, and location” and there is no better description of what this beautiful and spacious house provided for our family of 10 adults, two children, and one miracle dog. It was directly in the middle of the geographical area we needed to travel to for a wedding rehearsal (15 minutes to the Hidden Oaks Golf Clubhouse), wedding ceremony (10 minutes to the Santa Barbara Community College Bagger Overlook site with view of Pacific Ocean), wedding reception (15 minutes to same location of wedding rehearsal), and 10 minutes to a round of golf at Santa Barbara Muni Golf Course. The number of comfortable beds and bathrooms more than accommodated the crew we needed to have come and go in random patterns to the aforementioned venues. Above all the views and relaxed atmosphere of the pool and hot spa gave needed relief to those trying to get through such a hectic weekend without going into a full meltdown. Kudos also go out to the owner of the house in that she was always available to address any requests we made and absolutely reasonable in satisfying those requests within the parameters of the contract.

Large family perfection

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many different areas of Santa Barbara over the years, but have come to prefer Bel Aire Knolls for its quiet retreat from the crowds and yet proximity to beaches, restaurants and grocery stores. We were delighted both with the house and with Hilary's attention to our needs. Bringing our children and grandchildren from Maine and North Carolina to see their 96 year old grandfather just before he passed away was a dream that was made possible by the commodious and comfortable house. The pool and hot tub were a treat and the ability to erect a safety fence around the whole area made for peace of mind. The number of different living areas, both inside and outside, meant ease in gathering for meals and yet separate areas available for adults and kids. The 5 bedrooms were very quiet, well insulated from each other and the noise of the downstairs gatherings. Altogether, this home was a wonderful spot for the 8 of us to spend the week and have other family members over for dinners. The only flaw we could find was that Hilary was not willing to sell the house to us!

From the Owner

The Crestline house is in the perfect location for exploring Santa Barbara. It's close to down town, and only 1 mile to the best beach in Santa Barbara. Because it's high on a hill looking back towards the mountains and hills, the view is ever changing. And often it's warm and sunny even when the beach is foggy.

From the Owner

Quiet neighborhood with side walks and very little street traffic. Only 1 mile from best beach in Santa Barbara- Arroyo Burro beach park with picnic tables, BBQ area, parking, showers, bathrooms. This beach has gentle slope so good for children and swimmers of all ages. Miles and Miles of beach walking with the Hope Ranch cliffs as a back drop. Terrific views of Islands, dolphins & Surfers!
