Guestbook comments from the manager
We have stayed at this property 4 times. We have brought friends and family with us and each of them has nothing but good to say about the experience. I highly recommend Eucalyptus Hill and John and Francesca. We hope to return in 2009. The extra touches have been greatly appreciated. Fresh brownies, upscale linens and toiletries, etc. Very nicely done! Mesa, AZ

PEACEFUL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We so enjoyed our stay. We've stayed at many other rentals but this home was the best by far. The Cottage and guest house were clean and well maintained. The stunning views and lush gardens were so beautiful and serene. The nice little touches such as homemade brownies, fresh fruit, food basket, beverages, etc. were so appreciated and welcoming. We were content not leaving the property our entire visit. A true retreat. We've sent the property link to our friends and family. We look forward to our next visit.

THE PERFECT PLACE TO STAY IN SANTA BARBARA

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this beautiful cottage took our breath away. We rented the cottage (which is actually two cottages, 2 bedrooms in each) for a mother-daughter weekend and everything was perfect. Francesca stocked the kitchen with coffee, left wine in the frig and brownies on the kitchen counter for us. The bedding is beautiful and luxurious, the art work is stunning, the views amazing. Gardens everywhere, gorgeous landscaping, several outdoor areas for meals and relaxation -- just perfect in every way. I cannot sing the praises of this cottage highly enough!!! Our deposit was also returned within days. Truly a stunningly beautiful place to stay -- a lovely home away from home.

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four just stayed at this property and had a wonderful time. From the fragrant garden to the babbling brook/pond, you are immdiately taken away to peaceful relaxing time. The home was very clean and well stocked, but what constantly impressed us was the little details you only get in a home someone cherishes.

Owner's Response: Eucalyptus Cottage and Guest House is a magical place and I am so glad you enjoyed it. This house is originally part of the Mannington Estate and the garden was influenced by the very famous landscape designer Lockwood de Forest who designed the garden right next door. Thanks so much for your kind words. The are very much appreciated.

BEAUTIFUL, COMFORTABLE, AND CONVENIENT!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at the Eucalyptus Hill Rd. property with a group of 6 girlfriends for a wedding. Francesca had the place looking absolutely spotless and beautiful for our stay (and she made delicious brownies for our arrival!). The house has a gorgeous view of the ocean and a lovely stone deck with reclining chairs and a grill. The beds are very comfortable and everything is incredibly clean. The house is located in a very convenient spot. We were just a few minutes drive from downtown Santa Barbara, the ocean, and some wonderful hiking trails up in the hills. I would recommend Eucalyptus Hill to anyone looking for a comfortable, clean, and beautiful place to stay in Santa Barbara.

WONDERFUL SETTING FOR FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife, our 3 adult children and I stayed at the Eucalyptus Cottage for a week over the fourth of July. What a wonderful experience. When we walked through the gate and into the garden filled with citrus trees and butterflies, we suspected we had chosen well. The inside of both the house and guest house were true to the pictures, but what we hadn't expected were all the thoughtful touches. The basket of snacks and organic fruits, the well-stocked kitchen cupboards, the wines and juices in the fridge, and even a liquor cabinet. The kitchen itself has everything a cook could want - from food processor to juicer to a high-end gas range. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say - if the number of bedrooms and baths is what you're looking for, you couldn't do better.
