Disappointed

  • 1 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 12, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
The house shows fantastically online. It's in a great location and the size of the house is perfect for a family - we are a family of 5. We spent 2 nights / 3 days in this house during a trip down the coast of california for 12 days.

Unfortunately, the house was not what we expected. Upon entering the house, there was an unpleasant odor throughout - the kind of scent that was trying to cover something up. The garage smelled like there was a dead animal (or something else). The refrigerator, had leftover food crumbs in it. Sinks and drains were covered in hair and/or food. Counter tops were dirty. Laundry was left in the washer and dryers. Why we were charged a cleaning fee was absurd.

Our youngest child has severe allergies to food and pets as well as asthma. While advertised that there were no pets, there were leashes and other pet items in the house (ie. cat hair on couches, etc. When calling the owner about this, they explained that the cat was only housed outside). Thankfully, we brought medicine for our son. Unfortunately we had to use it.

While on our 12 day travel, we stayed in rental accommodations on the entire trip. While we had grand expectations for Santa Barbara, this house was the worst we stayed in - for all the reasons listed above. The only upside was that the smell and the condition of the house forced us to explore the area in greater detail than we expected. I guess that was the only upside.

We've rented a lot of houses for our vacations. If we could have received a refund and found another accommodation when in SB for our trip we would have. Unfortunately, that was not an option.

Oh and by the way, when we stripped the beds upon leaving the house to help with its cleaning, the stains on the mattresses were kind of disgusting.

Bottom line, this house could have been fantastic. Unfortunately, it was disgusting.
Owner's Response: In response to the comments, days prior to there arrival a family member passed away in a tragic accident. Even though, the house was very clean maybe not perfect for their standards. There was nothing said about anything being out of place or odors through out there stay.
In our house we use plug in air fresheners. We are sorry that the fragrance did not work for them. Finding hair in the sink and crumbs in the refrigerator. I disagree with that. We keep our house very clean. You might have found a few cat hairs in the back family room.
Our site says no pets allowed. I don't think we need to advertise that we have a pet. Yes, we do have a outdoor cat. If renters have any concerns they would communicate this before arrival.
In regards to wanting a refund. I never was approached about any of his issues. We never felt that the family was not enjoying there stay. This family was only here for two nights.
Read our other comments and see our pictures, judge for yourself.
This is our family home and we take pride keeping it up for renters to enjoy there vacation in Santa Barbara.

Thank you,

A great weekend in a great place!

The house is every bit as good as what is shown in the photos, and the location is very convenient. The house is within walking distance of downtown Santa Barbara and all of its shops and restaurants, and a short drive from the beach. Both definitely merit a visit.

The property itself is very clean and well maintained. The photos don't give the master bedroom justice. The house is very spacious and could comfortably host six people, if not more. The owner was very accommodating and courteous.

Visiting Santa Barbara is a must for anyone venturing out to southern California, and compared to the price of a hotel, this property is a steal.

Girl's Wine tasting Weekend

Girl's Wine tasting Weekend

Just this past weekend I spent a night with 4 of my girlfriends at Debra's home in Santa Barbara. We were celebrating a bachelorette party for one of the girls with a wine tasting tour and night out downtown SB. This rental was such a nice alternative to renting 2 separate rooms at a hotel. It gave us the space to relax, play games and have food and cocktails. This was my first time renting a home for a trip like this but Debra (owner) was very helpful. She worked with us on our arrival time. Since our wine tour picked us up at 10am she let us come prior to drop off a few things in the ref. The home was beautiful! I would love to live in a place like it someday. It was a little strange feeling like I was in a stranger's home but i suppose not too much different than staying in a hotel that many strangers have stayed in. Overall we had an amazing weekend and I would stay here again.

Perfect Fit for Our Family Vacation

This comfy family home was the perfect rental for our family vacation! The home was very clean and offered everything we needed to make our stay memorable. The owner provided wonderful ideas for my family and I to do while we were there. This was so helpful since we did not know much about the area. Her ideas were great, and made our vacation that much more fun and memorable! The home slept 4 adults and 2 small children very comfortably (with rooms to spare). The master suite is beautiful and very warm. The location is perfect for any activities you may want to do, in walking distance of most things. The neighborhood was safe and convenient. Would highly recommend this rental to anyone planning a family vacation to Santa Barbra!
