I was in town for a wedding with a friend and stayed at the Red Rose Cottage. We had a fantastic stay - the cottage is centrally located, clean, very comfortable and has a great deck. From the beach to great restaurants, everything is minutes away by car.
The owner Pete is very attentive and just a genuinely nice guy with his laid back California vibe. He helped answer any questions about the local area and made recommendations for places to check out. We weren't looking to stay at a fancy hotel but experience Santa Barbara like a local. This was perfect for us. Thanks again, Pete!
