About Catherine Crane

I live in Santa Cruz CA & work part-time as an ICU nurse. I have 2 wonderful grown children and 2 very handsome Labradors. My favorite activities are hiking with my dogs, scuba diving, golfing & traveling. I come to Santa Barbara to stay in my beautiful house whenever I can afford the time & vacancy.

Catherine Crane purchased this house in 2006

Why Catherine Crane chose Santa Barbara

My house is extremely comfortable, spacious & relaxing, convenient but away from downtown noise & tourist traffic. It is a safe family neighborhood. Once you're there you never want to leave!

Great, Easy Stay In Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in Ms. Crane's residence on our family trip to Santa Barbara. The house was comfortable and perfectly set up for a family to enjoy a relaxed vacation. We were able to cook, do laundry, eat outside, enjoy the hot tub, and relax in the living room after we put the kids to bed. Moreover, we had really easy access to Hwy 101 and all of Santa Barbara. Ms. Crane facilitated the visit well and we didn't have to worry about anything while we were there. Thank you for a great visit! We would definitely like to return to Santa Barbara.

Stunning house perfect for any kind of experience!

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculent and tidy. Plenty of room. We fit 7 people comfortably. All the amenities one could ask for from the elusive corkscrew to dishwashing detergent. We stayed for the Memorial holiday for a friend's birthday. The home entertainment system was an added bonus. The jacuzzi was nice but did not get too warm (perhaps user error though) :-). The house was very close to downtown but still tucked away so you could enjoy some quiet time and R&R. Thank you Catherine for a wonderful stay! We will be back for sure!

Adorable Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using VRDBO for a vacation rental and I was very impressed. 7 of us stayed at this home for a family reunion and the place was just adorable. Rustic like decor , very nice! Jacuzzi worked great, enough towels and room for everyone! The owner was very comminucative with me at all times which is always a plus! I ,as well as my famliy, enjoyed our stay.

We loved Santa Barbara so much that I am actually considering moving out there! Everyone was so nice in this town! We ate dinner at Cielto's which was pretty good and also did the captain Jack's wine tours which was an unforgettable experience. Everything worked out so perfect!

Thank you again for allowing us to rent your property!

Family get together

  • 5 of 5

This house worked out very well for our family. We had mom/dad, daughter, son in law, and grandbaby. The three bedrooms allowed us all to have our own space, and the baby could sleep. The house had all the amenities we needed. The rental was true to the pictures posted on line.
