Nice place with a wonderful pool, awesome view, and great host.

  • 5 of 5

My wife, My parents, and I stayed here for a few days of down time after our daughters wedding. It is located in the hills above Santa Barbara so it is very quiet and peaceful but still only a short drive to be in the heart of the city. Our hosts, Anne, Barry and Winston were very friendly and helpful. The guest suite is 2 bedroom 1 bath with lots of windows to let in fresh air. The real allure of this place is the yard. Several different types of birds, we saw several humming birds, an eagle, and a Red Headed woodpecker. Morning coffee outside was peaceful with no city noise just the sounds of nature. At night you can hear the sea lions barking from the marina. The large pool was very warm, the view of the Santa Barbara marina is amazing. We spent an afternoon/evening swimming in the pool, grilling steaks, and enjoying a bottle of wine. It was a great change from the heat of Las Vegas and Albuquerque. I highly recommend to stay here if you want a quite oasis that is still close to Santa Barbara but with the quiet serenity of the country. If we find ourselves in Santa Barbara we would definitely stay here again. Oh and if you stay there make sure to give Winston some love, he is a great dog.

Great place to stay if visiting Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in Santa Barbara. Anne and Barry and Winston the dog are wonderful hosts. As most other reviews have said the views from the patio and the front bedroom are incredible. It was a very quiet neighborhood which I appreciated. Don't hesitate to stay in this lovely place.

Wonderful property and owners

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely property and its wonderful owners. You will receive a warm welcome from Anne and Barry who ensure you will experience the best of Santa Barbara - we were lucky enough to accompany them to the annual Solstice parade. The pool is fantastic after a day out and the view over SB must be one of the best. The apartment is private and has all you will need - highly recommended and thanks to our new chums across the water!! We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Dear Cathy and Mark; Just a delight having you here and sharing our world famous Solstice Parade with you both! You were such good sports. So happy you enjoyed the heated pool. Great conversations and the special bond Americans and Brits share were much in evidence. Hope to see you in the future--there was more to see here in SB than you could in a one week visit! Warm regards from Anne and Barry

FIVE STAR RATING!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

FIVE STAR RATING!!! My Daughter Marisa graduated from UCSB and I had to make a last minute reservation which was super stressful that’s when I found Anne H. Rojas, who made my 1st experience with homeaway the best one yet Thanks you Annie H. Rojas!!! When we finally met she gave me such a great warm welcome with a big warm hug it felt as if we were longtime friendswhich made my stay very personal and special. Her beautiful home is a heavenly paradise with an incredible world view, heated pool and the site is breathe taking that I plan to come again real soon it was just too amazing. And, location is around the corner from State st where you will find there are many things to keep you busy like great shops and restaurants as well as night life. The people there were all super friendly as well as her neighborhood & neighbors I met when I took a morning early walk . In addition, she even had wine and beer there and if I was not so busy I would of gotten very spoiled by her and her lovely Husband. Thank you so much, felt so blessed to meet such a great couple and very much looking forward to visiting her back againThank you so much again and until next time my dear Friends.

Comfortable with nice views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed with Anne and Barry during a 5-day vacation to Santa Barbara.

The guest house connected to their main house was very comfortable, with two beds, a small kitchenette with fridge and microwave, nice recliner, and small dining table. The place was very well maintained, clean, and homey. The bathroom was clean and nice, maybe a bit small. The deck was beautiful, and we enjoyed an occasional dip (sunshine permitting) in the private pool!! Anne was friendly and hospitable, by making sure that we were comfortable, providing sight-seeing/activity tips for the Santa Barbara area, and providing good conversation. The neighborhood is residential and quiet; would definitely recommend a car for the (albeit short) drive to downtown Santa Barbara, beach, etc. The only downside was not being able to comfortably walk from the house to restaurants, beach, etc. Fortunately, parking around Santa Barbara was pretty easy and having a car was nice to have for trips to wine country and hiking trails!

We would stay here again on our next trip to Santa Barbara! Thanks Anne and Barry!

Thoroughly Delightful

  • 5 of 5

The spectacular vistas and the warm and welcoming hosts made for a delightful vacation filled with the comforts of home. The heated swimming pool was a special treat after a day of touring though no view was better than that from Anne and Barry's terrace. In addition, the location is a short drive to both to the towns in Montecito and Santa Barbara while offering quiet and tranquility away from city hubbub.

Although there is no full kitchen, Anne generously leaves all sorts of treats in the fridge including a bottle of wine or beer to enjoy while watching the sunset--and we were fortunate enough to enjoy their company over cocktails one evening. I can't imagine a better experience for this type of vacation, and weI look forward to returning there again next year.

Guests have commented that the photos do not do the property justice! So no surprises when you stay with us...... Where else can you have it all? Relax by the pool, enjoy coffee/wine on the veranda while watching the sunrise/ sunset over the City and ocean. Quiet, but still close to downtown attractions Park in our large circular driveway, not on street. No "car shuffling." Perfect place to de-stress! Many of our visitors just relax here and enjoy our quiet property and warm swimming pool, heated all summer and in winter by request. We can take 1 well behaved dog at $50. one time fee. Run of fenced yard for pet.
