About Corinne or Scott

My Husband and I live an hour away from Summerland, I fell in love with Santa Barbara County the first time I went there, and hoped some day in my future I would have a place there. We recently bought this house and did a lot of DIY hard work but worth it. We hope to retire here. Hope you love it too.

Corinne or Scott purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Corinne or Scott chose Summerland

We chose this property because of the ocean views and the privacy, The quaint town and the neighbors are great. It's close enough to come to when ever we want and enjoy with friends. It feels like the Ocean is your backyard.

What makes this cottage unique

Walk to the beach and town for something to eat, even buy some cute clothes or go wine tasting without having to drive

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Mermaid exceeded all of our expectations! The incredible Deck, Grill, Hot Tub, were used like crazy. We had great trips to Montecito and Santa Barabara, but always ended up at "home". We were able to cook like chefs in the kitchen that had everything.... Ceviche, Stone Crab, and Shrimp Scampi, all straight from the Santa Barbara Harbor. We visited the Summerland Beach a couple of times and watched Dolfins from our blanket and almost knocked down from the waves! Thanks for everything! Can't wait to come back! David and Colleen

Summerland views and quiet ambiance

  • 5 of 5

We came to visit our daughter in Santa Barbara but stayed in this wonderful home in Summerland. Imagine your best friend gives you the keys to her home cause that is what you find. Everything you need and more. Comfort, stylish decor, stocked kitchen, fresh oj if you want to pick and juice your own, the hottub, fireplace, sunning chairs and most of all the view. We enjoyed all that Santa Barbara had to offer and then enjoyed the quiet beauty of the Mermaid each night. Corrinne was a delight to meet and so attentive.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were so thrilled to come across the gem of "The Mermaid!" It surpassed all of our expectations! No detail was left unnoticed! Everything to make our stay perfect was right at our fingertips! We had so much fun driving around the area - Montecito Farmer's Market, Santa Barbara Fish Market, Cafe Luna, The Nugget and the Summerland Beach Cafe, but our favorite place was "home!" We so enjoyed the incredible sunsets each night, the huge. relaxing hot tub and waking up each morning to the glorious ocean!

Our days at Summerland Beach were amazing and we were lucky enough to even see a few dolphins right from our beach blanket! We have already started recommending The Mermaid to friends and family! But most importantly, we can't wait to start planning our trip back! Thank you is not enough!

Owner's Response: Dear David and Colleen, Thank you so much for the wonderful review, I'm so glad to hear your time here was great. In spite of the rain. I look forward to having you back, the house was left in great condition, thank you so much for following the check out list. Thank you for recommending it to your family and friends I hope they to enjoy the mermaid as much as you did. I stay here too when not rented, so I try to make sure everything is here, just like you would want it at your own home. The ocean views from the bed are great I will also agree to. I have seen whales swim by from the house. Hope to see you guys again. Thank you, Corinne H

Honeymoon in Summerland

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Summerland for our honeymoon, and could not have been more happy with our stay! The weather was absolutely beautiful in October. The house has doors that open up to a beautiful deck that you can leave open all day and enjoy the sunshine and ocean breezes. We enjoyed laying out on the deck while still having lots of privacy. The hot tub beneath the stars was a perfect way to end each day! The house was very well stocked with kitchen supplies, toiletries, and anything else you would need to live comfortably. The grill on the deck was fantastic and we loved grilling fresh fish from the nearby markets for our nights in. The beds were extremely comfortable, and there was plenty of room to unpack and hang up your clothes. The town of Summerland was quiet and relaxing, and had a few great restaurants that we wish we had ate at more! (The Nuggett, Cafe Luna). The beaches in this area were beautiful, although the tar was more prominent here than the beaches in Santa Barbara. We loved being only 10-15 min away from Santa Barbara, where we went wine tasting, shopping, and stand up paddleboarding. We also went on a 4 hour Whale Watching cruise and saw two humpbacks, several sea lions, and hundreds of dolphins! The food in Santa Barbara was great as well. We have to say Brophy Bros was our favorite restaurant (great food, service, and right on the water). We also went hiking on some trails nearby and took in amazing views of the ocean and the rest of Santa Barbara. There is so much to do in this area that we wish we could have stayed for a month! Corinne was very accommodating and made the house feel like our home for a week. She definitely made sure that you had your privacy while also being easy to contact in case we had any questions. This is a wonderful rental, no complaints at all!

I hope you will stay Again, you are a lovely couple and wonderful renters. Thanx again, Corinne (:

Super Cottage with great views!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at the cottage for a girls weekend and to participate in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. It was perfect for our needs. The cottage was clean, charming and had wonderful views of the ocean. We were close to the shops and restaurants in Summerland and it is a very close drive to Santa Barbara. We really enjoyed our stay and I high recommend this property.

Pictures do not do justice to Perfect Beach Get-away

  • 5 of 5

I very carefully picked this VRBO for price, location (close enough to walk), tranquility (far enough from street noise) and privacy (not a flat or in-law) and it was even better than we expected. The backyard seems huge because of the views and because other houses cannot view into the yard. Also, while we didn't use many of the amenities--I found the amount of refreshments, toiletries, towels, DVDs, games, etc., that were left in the house (which was very clean) to be very welcoming. I loved this VRBO and would highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review, your reviews is the best way to let people know what you liked about the house. For me it's a great little hide away, no need for a car, the bus is down the street, restaurants and groceries and shops and beach all in walking distance. Thank you for letting people know the house looks just like the pictures, this is the way I would want to find a rental, I hope all was ok when you arrived back home to SF. Thank you, Corinne

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. It was the perfect get away, very romantic and serene. The town had so many cute shops and restaurants to go to. The view of the ocean and the spa, were the highlights of our stay. We have never stayed somewhere so accommodating, everything you need is right there! It was an awesome trip, and we can't wait for our trip! Thank you so much, our honeymoon was perfect.
