Wendy and Chuck are longtime residents of Santa Barbara and Big Bear California. We are happy to share our love of these communities with guests. In fact, that is what makes being vacation rental owners of six properties and managing them ourselves so rewarding. We have made many happy memories in all of our properties (we have lived in each one of them) and can share all the special features and local ideas with guests.

We love gardening, biking, walks on the beach and spending time with our own family which includes three grown children and five grandchildren and a great granddaughter on the way!

Wendy Rockwood purchased this house in 2003

We have lived in Santa Barbara for over thirty years and we think we have the best location in town. We are close to everything and can go to any area, Montecito, downtown, the beach, Goleta, all without having to travel on the busy freeway. Coming home to this property is always like a breath of fresh mountain air. Yet, we can still walk downtown through the historic area around the 'Queen of the Missions.' We often take in it's beautiful rose garden and walk through the distinctive Upper East side which is filled with the elegant historic homes.

Our first trip to this home was like falling in love for the first time. We just adore the backyard patio area and pool for relaxing and refreshing ourselves. The sprawling nature of the single story layout is also fantastic for hosting guests as the sleeping areas are separate from the kitchen and active areas.

Nestled on an acre the property is truly a private retreat. The hawks fly overhead and the many birds enjoy with us the fantastic gardens and orchards which surround the property. Our piece of Heaven.

With having a direct relationship with the owner/manager you will deal with one person from your booking to any necessary details during your stay.

"Totally Relaxing and enjoyable, what a vacation should be"
This is the second year that we have spent our vacation at 'Poolside' in Santa Barbara. As before, the only thing we needed to do was show up and bring some good books to read and our food and drink. This vacation rental home comes with everything else you might possibly need for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation.
The location is perfect. You fell that you are miles away from everything but in actuality you are only minutes away from downtown, the beaches, restaurants, etc.
We hope to be back again next year.

"A Great House for a Family Vacation!"

"A Great House for a Family Vacation!"
  • Submitted: Mar 26, 2014
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We had a lovely week in this house during our recent family reunion. The home is large enough that everyone has privacy, and most of the decor and features are updated. However, it is casual enough for families with small children to feel comfortable. The best part of this house is definitely the outdoor pool area - beautiful fruit trees, a huge deck area, and a fabulous pool. The location is lovely, a short drive to town but removed in the hills. Walking distance to a great park, the Natural History Museum, and the Santa Barbara Mission. The secret perk that makes it feel luxurious is the white towels - there are tons of them in each bathroom!

Beautiful Getaway

"Beautiful Getaway!"
3 couples recently rented "Poolside" to celebrate our 50th Birthdays...and we are so happy we did. We enjoyed the beautiful gardens, private yard, swimming in the pool, and cooking with the fresh herbs, lemons, limes, and oranges we found on the property. We are from Canada, and spent our days exploring and golfing around Santa Barbara - but we enjoyed coming "home" to cook and eat our meals in the quiet and privacy of the home.

Wendy was very helpful in providing suggestions for golf, limousine service for wine tours, and any other info we wanted to know about Santa Barbara. We especially appreciated her professionalism from start to finish in the process - following through in a timely manner with e-mails and phone calls, and leaving us feeling that all is being taken care of.

The home was perfect for 3 couples who wanted to be together, but still have our own "space".

Thank you!

Wonderful, relaxing, revitalizing week!

  • Submitted: Jul 21, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
This place and home will live long in our memory. We have had a wonderfully relaxing, energizing and revitalizing week in your generous slice of paradise. We became thoroughly immersed in the property's balming charms from the first day until our final early morning last swim just minutes ago.
The symmetry, architecture and spatial embrace was unique and delightful to us all. What a place, for which our only regret is having to leave! We shall return again, and that thought shall stay with us until the next drive up Mission Canyon road.
