About Jill

We grew up in Santa Barbara and believe it's a magical place.

Jill purchased this house in 2009

Why Jill chose Santa Barbara

West Beach is such a happy place. This home is in a vibrant vacation destination, but tucked back just enough to provide a private, comfortable escape.

Dream House in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our daughter, her husband and our 3 year old granddaughter stayed at the "Spanish Beauty" for a week in February. The house was very comfortable and offered everything we needed for a memorable vacation. The house was exceptionally beautiful with stunning, colorful Spanish tiles in the kitchen, bathrooms and all the stairs. The furnishings and layout of the house were warm and inviting. Just walk one block and your are in the middle of the action with the beach, restaurants, marina and lower State Street. Jill had left a welcoming basket with information about things to do and even a bottle of wine. Though we were only a block from the beach, the neighborhood was very quiet. When we woke the first morning we looked out the window and were awed by the view of the mountains. I would like to thank Kelly, who greeted us and checked to see if we needed anything on several occasions during the week. She was so friendly and helpful, especially when we had a problem with a rental car at the beginning and our flight was cancelled on the day we were supposed to leave. We highly recommend this property for a perfect vacation and thank the personal contact and service by Jill and Kelly.

The perfect family rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this amazing home, that is perfectly outfitted with every possible thing you could need! My daughter goes to school in Santa Barbara and so we celebrated her 21st and my fathers 75th birthdays. My

husband is a chef and the kitchen is superior, the veranda was hard to leave, we all took bike rides on the furnished beach cruisers and the beds had beautiful linens! The decor was superb and the entire house just

perfectly put together - were very sad to leave - LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!

Wish we could do all over again!

  • 5 of 5

We decided in lieu of boring Christmas gifts for our grown children that we would give them a family get-away trip instead. We chose Santa Barbara as our destination and as luck would have it, we chose this house for our stay. It far surpassed my expectations - from the location, to the comfy furnishings, to the décor, all the way down to the bed sheets! We had an amazing time - riding bikes on the wharf, drinking Mimosas on the deck, shopping on State St and eating, eating, eating at so many fabulous nearby restaurants! Although we could have easily prepared meals in the beautiful, fully-equipped kitchen, we took our vacation to mean just that - no cooking! Jill was wonderful to book through - she was quick to respond and offered so many tips for dining and shopping to help make our stay and time together what it was - A HAPPY MEMORY!

Since that trip was such a hit with the family, we have decided to make it an annual Christmas gift to our kids. Although our destination this time is Sonoma, I am keeping my fingers crossed that our next VRBO is as amazing as this one was.

Thank you, Jill and Kelly - we hope to be back soon! Happy New Year!

Great family/friends residence

  • 5 of 5

Our kids and granddaughter (and their mother in law) spent 3 nights here for a weekend wedding and it was all we could have hoped it would be. Roomy and well furnished/supplied, we had every comfort we needed. The outside terrace in the front had a lovely feel and we spent leisurely mornings and afternoon aperitifs out there and watched the 10 month old crawl all over. It was an easy walk to a number of excellent/eclectic restaurants. Check in and out was a breeze with a great greeter who answered the few questions we had; any other questions were easily answered in a definitive household guide book. Will look forward to other expeditions to Santa Barbara if only to stay at this great property.

Dream vacation house

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were fortunate enough to stay at this house from October 4-12. We have stayed at quite a few homes rented through VRBO all over the country, and after reading the reviews we decided to give this house a try for our Santa Barbara vacation. After making the reservation, the owner begin reaching out to us via email welcoming us and giving suggestions for activities, restaurants, etc. She made us feel like she was as excited for our trip as we were. When we finally arrived in Santa Barbara our already high hopes and expectations were immediately surpassed. From the moment you pull into the driveway, you realize you've made the right choice. We travelled all the way from Pittsburgh and wanted to make sure we were staying in a place that would make us feel at home. This place checks all the boxes! It is gorgeous, impeccably clean and wonderfully decorated. From the cobblestone driveway to the beautifully tiled bathrooms there is nothing about this house I would change if I owned it myself. The location is unbeatable (a stones throw to the beach, shopping and restaurants, yet in a quiet and very safe neighborhood). It is apparent that the owners have made every effort to make their guests as comfortable and pampered as possible. Everything you could need at the house is provided from beach chairs, beach towels, coolers, bikes pack&plays, and more. The kitchen is decked out with beautiful stainless steel Viking appliances and the furniture is all high end throughout. This is hands down the best house we have ever rented through VRBO and is without a doubt a five star house through and through. I have to admit we have pretty high standards, and I am currently writing this review from a "five star" house we are renting in Monterey which we are pretty disappointed in. Anyway, I can't recommend this house enough and would not consider staying anywhere else on our next trip to beautiful Santa Barbara. Thank you so much Jill again for letting us enjoy your wonderful home! Your gave us a vacation we will never forget! We cannot wait to come back. If anyone is heading to Santa Barbara, we particularly enjoyed the farmers markets which occur almost everyday, Los Agaves if you are into Mexican food, and Dan Ysidro Ranch for a romantic night out, though can be a little pricey.

St Barbara Haven

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home for 4 nights at the end of our "west coast" adventure and it was the perfect place to end a busy holiday schedule.

The house was all as described and the photos were accurate and reflected the space well, unlike our experience in the first house of our holiday in San Francisco which was exactly the opposite.

The furnishings are tasteful, the kitchen spacious and well equipped, the bedrooms comfortable and quiet and the bathrooms provided lots of hot water and towels (and were beautifully tiled!)

We loved sitting out on the deck in the evenings and found a good Mexican takeaway less than 10 minutes away which meant we could relax with our food in our home space.

The house was so close to the beach and it was a pleasure to take myself out for an early morning run along the very beautiful promenade! Having beach towels provided made beach trips easy...

Local shops and eateries are all within walking distance and we tried a number of the options recommended by Jill and can endorse those choices.

Having a washing machine and dryer was great and the option for the bikes - which I used most days - was wonderful and topped off the experience.

We all loved Santa Barbara and are so glad we opted to travel an extra two hours to stay here rather than the LA option our travel agent first suggested. The old Mission is beautiful, the backdrop of the mountains stunning and the vintage clothes shops fun!

We had a lovely stay - and I would definitely return.
