We rented this diamond in the ruff on VRBO and fell in love with the place. We were greated by the owners who showed us around the place. It is a stunning piece of property and the house was so great for our 2 families. We came up for our son's graduation, it was the perfect spot for our wonderful weekend. I have to say all we did was mention we were going to have some folks over after the graduation and here comes Dave with enough tables and charis to seat our guests. They are super folks, wish we had more time to visit with them. We will be back! Thank you Dave & Patti!!!!

Mission Creek Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We spent two wonderful months and Mission Creek was everything we wanted. Patti and Dave were great hosts. We found the house perfect for our needs. The extra bedroom was also great for our out of town guests. And what a great way to start the day with coffee and breakfast overlooking the garden and pond. It is less than 10 minutes to downtown yet we felt very secluded. Right across the street is the Botanical Gardens which we walked frequently. We couldn't ask for a better location.
Thanks Dave and Patti for a great winter.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5
We spent 9 days in this house as home base for our vacation in Santa Barbara. We loved the place! I originally wanted to rent a house with an ocean view, but my wife convinced me to try something new. As usual, she was right. The house and the grounds are both beautiful and top notch. Situated on a creek in Mission Canyon, you are surrounded by huge trees; but the house is bright and cheerful due to its many skylights and large picture windows. It's a house that really brings the outdoors in; which is wonderful, since the gardens are a work of art. We loved eating in the "nook" and watching the waterfall and the Koi swim back and forth. The clivia was in bloom while we were there, which added a lot of color to the yard. The house is spacious and equipped with everything you need for cooking (including spices). Original art hangs throughout, with nice decor pieces everywhere. The beds were firm and comfortable. There is even a large fenced area for dogs, which our Welsh Terrier loved. This is a really nice place and we will rent it again should we return to santa Barbara for another vacation. Thanks Dave and Patti for sharing your home with us.

Travelers with a dog

  • 4 of 5
The reviews all capture the nature of this property well. My only complaint is that communication with the owner was very weak. I e-mailed several times before I left home requesting the property address. It wasn't until I placed a phone call the day before my arrival that I finally got it.

When we checked out, I inquired about getting my deposit back and was assured it would show up on my credit card. When two and a half weeks latter it still wasn't credited, I called the owner who said he would take care of it that week-end.

The poor communication detracted from an otherwise nice stay.

Relaxing wooded retreat

  • 5 of 5
We had a perfect weekend visiting my son who attends UCSB. He wanted a break from the crowded dorms and a visit with the family dog (and us:) ) We had a lovely relaxing stay. The common areas are large and spacious with beautiful picture windows looking out at the gorgeous garden area and trees. The kitchen is well equipped. You're within walking distance of the botanical gardens and very close to nice hikes and State Street is just a quick jaunt down the hill. The house feels very private. I'd put a caveat out to families with babies or toddler or the mobility impaired that there are steep steps leading up to the master bedroom--not a problem for most people, though. All in all, for us, a great experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind review Deborah. The house is very personal to Patti and I as we have lived in it together since we were married 18 years ago. We love sharing it and have found, without exception, everyone has been very respectful. Our biggest joy is meeting our guests and doing what we can to make their stay more enjoyable.

Hidden Gem in The Woods

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely gorgeous place, next door to Botanic Gardens and minutes to downtown and the beaches.
The home has all the amenities, very comfortable for the family of four. The bedroom upstairs is very spacious with large separate closet, beautiful large bathroom and its own balcony. Owners are very nice and very helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone. We had great time and definitely planning to be back.
