About the Owner

As long time Santa Barbara residents we welcome you to our home. We are educated and well traveled and appreciate visitors from all lifestyles, cultures and countries, but will be respectful of your privacy and space during your stay should you want no interaction....

We are owner managed and do all of our own bookings.

We open our home because we enjoy doing so--not as a business. We have hosted wonderful guests from all parts of the world and stay in contact with many of them. Several have returned for visits. We have visited previous guests in Uruguay and Chile and Britain is now on our list!

Excellent location, super clean, fantastic view.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Anne's home. The location is perfect with easy access to everything you need to see around. The place is super clean. Pool was fantastic, warm and clean water. The view from the terrasse is the best you can hope for such a rental. Neigborhood is very quiet. Ann was a fantastic guess helping us find the best thing to do. We recommend this place and we will certainly be back.

Coming back EVERY year!

  • 5 of 5

Our 4 day stay in the "little cottage" was a heavenly vacation, even without the fun & beauty of Santa Barbara! Anne was so sweet! And the little details really helped, like delicious muffins, fruit from the garden, and recommendations of local places for dinner each night! I would love to come back EVERY year!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a totally relaxing, gorgeous home away from home in Santa Barbara, look no further. Anne and Barry have created the perfect 2 BR apartment, with a separate entrance, access to the beautiful pool overlooking SB harbor from the Montecito hill direction, across a very nice garden. The fridge was stocked with all the little things you need for a comfortable stay, including a bottle of champagne which we took care off the very first evening. Anne and Barry are the perfect hosts, attentive, there when you need them, with great advice on what to do in the area, they really know how to make you welcome and feel at home! We are coming back. 5 stars !!!

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.

Location

Old Mission Santa Barbara
Stearns Wharf

From the Owner

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.
