RECEPTION SANTA BARBARA
We were in town for our son's 2nd wedding reception as our daughter in law is a native Santa Barbara girl! We had 16 Texans that stayed in the house! What a wonderful time and we could not have picked a better location! The house was amazing and the booking procedure was very easy! I would highly recommend this location!
Great location! Great living space!
We loved the house. We had 5 families staying there SO comfortably. The kitchen was fantastically stocked and the beds and linens were so comfortable. The only downsides were a few low flow toilets and odd showers. Great proximity to the beach and parks. The hot tub was great.
Shoreline Family Retreat
Wonderful house for large family/families to share. Lots of privacy and close to a lot of things in Santa Barbara
Great reunion spot!
We had multiple families with kids coming together in this fabulous house. There was plenty of room, excellent accommodations, and spacious enough for each family to feel comfortable. The house was clean and well appointed. Paradise retreats was responsive and helpful. The house was walking distance from two different parks, beaches, sunsets and close to everything in SB, including grocery stores, restaurants and the harbor. Would definitely recommend this house for a big group!
Half Marathon Runners
Eight of us came from Colorado to run the Santa Barbara half marathon. This property was perfect for our large group, with a separate bedroom for each person. The location was perfect, and the house was directly on the race course!
We came to Santa Barbara to have a family reunion prior to attending a wedding at a ranch. This house was a perfect spot for our family from all over the world, ages ranging between 1 and 69. There was more than enough room to comfortably house everyone. The house was well stocked with almost everything that you could need to have a beach stay, and cooking all meals at home. There were even sand toys and beach accessories we could borrow to use. There's ample parking. The house was clean (though by my ultra clean family's standards, a bit sticky). When we first arrived, the garbage was piled high, so attracted birds, flies and ants, and despite the fact that garbage day was the following day, the property manager immediately sent someone to remove it! The groundskeepers were lovely, and told us about the lemon and avocado trees on the property. We were able to take advantage of the parks and beaches nearby, as well as the proximity to groceries, coffee shops, and the zoo. There wasn't anything that we could really think about that we could want beyond what was graciously provided.
