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.

BEST EVER

Just when I thought Serenity House could not get any better, my husband and I made a return visit and discovered that Jan and John had found ways to improve their VRBO. To a property that we already felt was ideal, they added plants and a fountain to the outdoor seating area and an extra sitting table indoors.
Serenity House is amazing, by far the best VRBO we have ever experienced.
When you first arrive, the house is immaculate, everything is in place and welcoming. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, the yard is lovely, beach toys and chairs are available and Jan and John see to your every need.
The location of Serenity House is ideal for exploring the beach and downtown Santa Barbara.
I recommend Serenity House unconditionally, it is an amazing property, lovingly maintained.

Ideal home in Santa Barbara

This is our second time staying at Jan & John's Serenity House. There is so much to love about this home! The location is fantastic -- close to the beach, park & shops. The house is always immaculate and every detail has been thought of -- from kitchen tools, to beach toys, to movies (for the kids & grown-ups), to a little play structure in the backyard for the kids to climb on. The beds are VERY comfortable and even the bedding & towels feel luxurious. The owners live in the house behind Serenity House and are so hospitable and gracious. They can help with just about anything you might need! We can't say enough wonderful things about our stay and plan on coming back every time we end up in Santa Barbara.

Great Girls Getaway

Our girls getaway at Serenity House was wonderful. Jan and John were very accommodating with our last minute reservation. The house had everything we needed to rest and relax. Extremely clean and well appointed. The short distance walk to the beach made this home even more enjoyable. Would highly recommend Serenity House if you're planning a trip to Santa Barbara.

A wonderful experience at the Serenity House

We stayed at Serenity House for several weeks and could not have asked for a more relaxing, well maintained, clean, and pleasant place to call home during our visit. Jan and John, the property owners, were the icing on the cake as they consistently went above and beyond to be helpful and accommodating, while being very respectful of our peace and privacy.

This was a difficult few weeks for my family as we were visiting the area to support a family member during her illness. Prior to arriving we spent a reasonable amount of time researching properties that would actually offer some degree of peace and 'serenity' during this visit, and this home exceeded our expectations. The condition of the house and surrounding property are outstanding. Everything is clean, updated, and with quality furnishings and products throughout. The location was fantastic too. The house is in a quiet neighborhood and a quick walk to the local park in the Mesa with some spectacular ocean views. A beautiful beach can be reached within a quick walk too. The house comes equipped with all sorts of towels, chairs, and related gear for the beach.

We were mainly using the house to relax and decompress after dealing with some difficult days. We were very fortunate to have found ourselves at Serenity House during this period. The house is bright and sunlit through the day. The open and airy layout of the home and very comfortable furnishings made it so easy to relax and unwind. Our difficult moments during this trip were made a bit easier and our moods were lifted due to the comforts of the surroundings, as well as the very sincere compassion and kindness of Jan and John.

The Serenity House became our home away from home at a time when really needing the peace, privacy, and comfort of a home truly mattered. And a big thanks to Jan and John for being so understanding, supportive, and thoughtful, while respecting our privacy, during this visit. We definitely recommend this property for those considering a visit to Santa Barbara.
