About the Owner

My husband and I met in Santa Barbara and have raised our family here. We live in a wonderful area that is rural but close to downtown, the beach and the foothills. We love our home and have a couple of acres where we use to keep our horses and, have plenty of room to keep our 2 Australian shepherds happy. We have a great little guest cottage on the property as well and thought it would be fun to share it with people traveling to and through SB that have dogs, although, we think people with out animals will love it as well.

Our yearly pleasure

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the cottage for 3 years now -- and are already eager for our next visit. The cottage makes a perfect getaway for Douglas and I and our big, tall dog. Ember loves the property and we all appreciate how close it is to the dog beach. Vikki is the ultimate hostess and the cottage is always immaculately clean and welcoming.

A cozy comfortable cottage as an accomodation for my wife, myself and our best friend. Great location in Santa Barbara close to all creature comforts. Look forward to spending time at the cottage again. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting S.B.

Spring Cottage Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the cottage and it did not disappoint! Everything in the garden was in bloom. It felt like being home but better. Vicki pays attention to the details of hospitality and anticipates your needs.

One day we went to the beach, hiked Cold Springs, shopped State Street and ate out. The next day, after visiting the farmer's market, we cooked, enjoyed the coziness of the cottage and views from the deck with our books. My sister and I and little dog enjoyed being so close to EVERYTHING!

We can't wait to return a third time.

Stylish, comfy, and private

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, convenient to all of Santa Barbara activities and filled with all the comforts anyone could want. This home includes everything needed to have a restful vacation. Beautiful mountain views, wrap around deck and chairs, roomy house, extremely clean, tons of privacy and attractive flowers and greenery. We would have stayed longer, if only we could have extended our vacation! Thanks Vicki and Dave for providing such a welcoming and beautiful home! We loved our time in your home and will plan to come back soon!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, with gracious host and well appointed cottage. We will definitely be back.

Vicki was great and the cottage was in perfect order. Everything you needed was there and in the right place. You can tell someone put a lot of thought into where things were and how things we arranged. The amenities were great. Dogs and wife loved it. Vacation WIN!

The best part about our property is the peace, location and being able to have a safe place for pets. We are less than 5 minutes away from one of the only off leash dog beaches in Santa Barbara. The hiking trails in the foothills are all with in minutes from out property, as well. Downtown Santa Barbara, where all the theaters, shopping and restaurants are also just minutes away.
