We're retired and cared for our Aunt for 20 years before her passing in 2009. God blessed us with the funds to renovate her home and we decided it would make a lovely 'vacation home'. From the nice reviews, it has been a home away from home for several families.

Jan & John purchased this house in 2009

We didn't buy it. My Aunt left it to us in her trust.

Comfortable, roomy, close to the beach and surrounding restaurants and stores. Great backyard for children to play.

Beautiful Home, Good Location

  • 5 of 5
The home was very clean with beautiful upgrades, including a large backyard for the kids to play. The location was up the street from the beach and park, as well as close to State st. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again! Thank you Jan!

Relaxing August Week away

  • 5 of 5
As USCB alumni, we enjoy getting back to the area. We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood. It was very clean which is a priority for us as our entire family struggles with various allergies. If I had to pick a downside, it would be the size of the bathrooms (small). It was not a problem for us, but could be for some with disabilities potentially. Towels and linens were very nice. We enjoyed walks on the beach, bike rides and a hike at rattlesnake canyon. While we appreciated the nice big kitchen (to save on some meals with two teenage boys), we also enjoyed a few meals out including Roses Mexican Food (just up the street), and our SB favorites with great food and excellent service: the Palace Grill (a little pricey, but absolutely delicious), and Cold Springs Tavern (a nice drive at the top of San Marcos Pass). We appreciated the secure garage to securely store our SUPs and one bike we brought. (A few bikes in the garage were used by others in the family.) We'll be back!

Perfect California Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Serenity House is a dream vacation home from start to finish. All communication with the owner leading up to our stay at this home was timely, helpful, organized and honest. When we arrived everything far surpassed our expectations which were already high based on the photos, location and communication. Serenity House is well appointed, bright, airy and comfortable. I can't think of a single amenity this home-away-from-home lacked (and we are a family of 5, including one teenager!) during our month long stay. The owner went above and beyond, providing so many extras including bikes and beach towels. The gardens both front and back are beautiful and peaceful. On top of all this, Serenity House's location is nothing less than fabulous! While it sits on a quiet street, it is walking distance from beaches, rollerblading, SUP boarding, kayaking, biking, dining and shopping. This was truly a wonderful home and we hope to be able to return. Thank you!

Family friendly and peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved the location and the amenities that came with the house (bikes, washer & dryer etc...). The pictures reflected the property to a tee! Close to the park/s and the beach, kayaking. Enjoyed the convenience of the great restaurants and stores. Would recommend this property to loved ones and definitely coming back!
The owners were delightful and super easily reached.

Stunning house

  • 5 of 5
The house is absolutely immaculate. The location is great, walking distance to the beach, walking distance to shopping center and only 5min from downtown Santa Barbara. You'll find everything you need in this house. Amazing house, extremely nice owner.
I would absolutely recommend this rental to anyone.

Summer Vacation for the Family

  • 5 of 5
House was even nicer than photos show. Property was in excellent condition and very clean inside and out. Owner provided play toys, bicycles and tricycles for my grandchildren. Plus bicycles for the adults, beach chairs, towels and beach toys for kids. Owner could not have been nicer or more accommodating.

We would love to stay here again when visiting Santa Barbara.
