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

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.

BETTER THAN ADVERSTISED

  • 5 of 5
Though it's been a few months since our stay, we still wanted to come on to VRBO to give the Summerland Cottage an excellent review. The views were incredible. Summerland was the perfect mix of out-of-the-way and convenient. A short drive to SB, both road- and mountain-biking easily accessible, and a wonderful walk down the hill to the small market or coffee joint for necessities. The cottage was clean and well-stocked. We used the oranges from the tree outside our door to make fresh OJ and the hot tub was a welcome addition for the end of the day. We loved being able to open up both of the French doors to take advantage of the sea breezes and even picking up the keys was hassle-free! Really loved our time there. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for all the great things you said about the place, I do hope to you see you again in the future, this means alot to me. I try to make sure the house is no less then What I would expect.The renters I choose are fewer then more, I hope to always find respectable adults, because this is not a party house, the neighborhood is quite and I respect my neighbors not to disturb them in the process. I too love this house. Please stay again, best wishes Corinne

FABULOUS RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
My sisters and I stayed at this beautiful cottage for a mini vacation. We thought it was absolutely perfect! The listing description and pictures very accurately represent the rental. Everything was clean, comfortable, well maintained and cared for. The property is very private and has fantastic views. All you see is the great blue Pacific! The rental has a fantastic open layout with large doors that open onto the back deck, so you have ocean breezes throughout the entire house. We spent a lot of time on the deck, using the grill, hot tub and outdoor fireplace. Corinne was a friendly and attentive host from the start of of our correspondences to our final check out. I forgot a few items by accident and she even offered to send them to me. Summerland is a sweet town with all of the amenities you need: cafe, market, liquor store, post office, pub. We loved walking to the Luna Cafe and the local beach which was never crowded and is great for swimming and soaking in the California sunshine. I highly recommend this rental, and my sisters and I are already scheming our next trip :)

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Sarah for the very kind review. I try to make sure the house is the way I would want it, I do try to choose my renters carefully, it's not about renting to everybody and anybody, this is also my vacation house, I was very happy to meet all of you, thank you for taking good care of the house. I do hope to see you guys back again. Someone always leaves something it's not a problem to send it, I'm happy to do it. Take care, Corinne

BEAUTIFUL OCEAN VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5
The Mermaid was exactly what we were looking for! Ocean views from nearly every room, privacy, hot tub, spacious decks, sleepy little town. Corinne has kept this cottage in great shape, and tastefully decorated. She even went above and beyond to arrange to have some items there for our baby (pack and play, high chair and exersaucer)! Her suggestions and brochures for restaurants and things to do were very helpful. And the extra touch of providing a fruit basket, muffins, milk and orange juice certainly came in handy. Great proximity to Santa Barbara and Montecito. The only thing to be aware of in this area is the tar on the beaches...covered the bottoms of my feet!

Owner's Response: Hi Shannon, I really appreciate all the kind words, I do thank you and your husband for your stay,You are the kind of renters we all hope for, I hope you come to stay here again. Sorry you had to experience the tar on the beach, I have walked down there several times and had nothing on my feet, less times then more. You can experience that on the central coast area, there's oil out there. As you know we don't want them drilling for it, I found the Clorox wipes does get it off. Thank you very much, hope to see you again, Corinne

SUMMERLAND COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
I rented this very nice home and guest cottage for my daughter's UCSB graduation weekend. The home was tastefully decorated and furnished with all the amenities I needed to make the weekend a success. The weather was perfect - sunny afternoons and warm evenings. After graduation on Saturday we had a family BBQ on the backyard deck with wonderful views of the Pacific Ocean. On Friday afternoon my wife and father-n-law visited the the Summerland Winery for an afternoon tasting. It's just a couple of blocks away and a great place to sample some local wines. The owner took the time to meet us on arrival and made sure everything was ready for our enjoyment. Santa Barbara is only 5 minutes away by car. I would recommend this home if you are looking to visit the Santa Barbara area. A real gem!

PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5
The Summerland Cottage was exactly what I was looking for. It's impeccably clean and well designed - the perfect getaway. The house itself if ideal for a solo retreat, romantic weekend, or a few friends getting away. The decks give a terrific view of the ocean, exactly as shown in the pictures. The jacuzzi/spa is fabulous for nights under the stars. You really never have to leave! The owner left a nice basket of fruit, muffins, and coffee. There's also an orange tree on site for fresh juice. Other than that - whatever you need can be found at the market down the hill. The cottage is a short walk to town and the beach. The town is lovely and quaint, with Montecito and Santa Barbara right next door if you need more choices. The owner was very communicative, and the whole transaction was an A+. I would definitely return and highly recommend to anyone looking at this site.
