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.

Third visit and already planning a fourth

  • 5 of 5

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.

Excellent cottage. A beautiful place.

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.

Lovely spot for you and your faithful companion

  • 4 of 5

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.

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.

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.

From the Owner

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.
