We had a fabulous one week vacation at this luxurious unit in Santa Barbara. Everything was as pictured and described on VRBO. The location is close ( 1 block) to State Street where there are many restaurants and access to the wharf and beach. You can walk or take the shuttle which is 50 or 25 cents, based on age. We chose this unit because it was pet friendly. We had the downstairs unit with a lovely courtyard and fountain. We were very happy with the management and Laura was extremely helpful and kind, providing us with information that made our stay much better. It was a quiet, cool place to relax while the outside was a beehive of activity. Would highly recommend it.
