About Vicki

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.

Vicki purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Vicki chose Santa Barbara

Why not ;)

What makes this cottage unique

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.

We had a great time at the cottage! The location is perfect, the view is gorgeous and the cottage is perfectly decorated. It is evident that Vicki put thought into every detail and it's truly lovely. It's nice to go somewhere where you can feel at home yet away from it all. Highly recommend! We look forward to going back!

Peaceful, relaxing holiday time.

Another great holiday vacation in Santa Barbara. We so appreciate everything in the house Vicki set up to make our vacation so enjoyable. The house has what you need to be comfortable and feel like home. We visit our daughter and son-in-law, and with Vicki's wonderful house, our kids can bring their dog over, we can spend some wonderful time visiting and just enjoy our time together. Loved my runs to the dog beach only 1 1/2 miles away for a short get away! So convenient to Santa Barbara's top spots, yet the house feels so removed from any business and is super private. Lovely home away from home! Thanks Vicki for sharing your vacation home with us!

Third visit and already planning a fourth

The Cottage has become a sister's semi-annual vacation destination for us. Our third visit met our high expectations and standards once again. It is our dog's paradise. We visit the dog-friendly beach every day, enjoy the views from the deck, and find the location is close to everything in Santa Barbara. Vicki is top notch, the cottage is well-appointed as well as immaculate. We feel welcome and at home.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the lovely review! I love that you have sister getaways and that you choose our cottage for your time in SB. It's always a pleasure having you and your sweet pup! You have inspired me to make it a priority to do this on a regular basis with my sister! Looking forward to seeing on your next visit!

From the start we had a warm welcome from Vicki, the cottage was perfect inside, and the views were spectacular outdoors. We'd return in a flash.

The area and views are quite lovely. Easy to get to beaches, downtown, and other areas of interest. Very quiet (except for crows some mornings) and thus encourages relaxation. Nicely furnished and equipped. Owners nice and professional.
