About: Paul and I have been living in New Zealand for the last 9 years. We were both in the hospitality industry and know how to meet your high expectations. We love fly fishing,cycling and family. We have relocated to Santa Barbara and have created a beautiful,peaceful,unique space for you to enjoy your time in the area. We can't wait to make you feel comfortable and invite you to enjoy all Santa Barbara has to offer.
We were originally from California. After making a huge international move to New Zealand for 9 years we knew when we returned we wanted to land in Santa Barbara. The area offers everything we love to do. Paul is a paraglider and we love cycling and family. Our real passion is fly fishing which we can't get enough of.
We chose this property because we loved the unique floor plan. The kitchen and bathroom are large and the bedroom is so romantic and roomy. The wow factor from the minute we walked in made us fall in love with our home. Not to mention the 1 block walk to beautiful East Beach where dolphins cruise through the water with grace and beauty. We never want to leave this place.
We were all so delighted to find such a special place to stay while in Santa Barbara - Thank you
Oh my goodness!! Each time we visit your place it has even more appeal. My sister and I stayed for a long weekend and so appreciated the coffee, butter and jam! How very thoughtful to have the small amenities for your guests!! Love the new kitchen! It's bright and beautiful. We made a simple dinner one night and found all we needed in your well appointed kitchen! Thank you for your thoughtfulness in creating a great get-away!!
Wonderful cottage SO close to the beach. Very tastefully and comfortably furnished with all the modern amenities and a dedicated, covered off street parking spot. Beautiful, high-end kitchen. Extremely clean and quiet. Lovely bedding. Highly recommend this rental. Thank you again, Jane and Paul!
We loved staying at this fabulous VRBO hidden gem in the East Beach section of Santa Barbara. We have used VRBO many times across the country and in Europe and this was one of our top places! It is so close to the beach, the zoo and only a lovely bit of a walk (about 1.3 miles along the ocean) to State Street where we would have breakfast or coffee.
The home is beautiful, comfortable and filled with thoughtful amenities. The bed was so comfortable and the home was filled with natural light and air. Sitting on the sun porch was delightful any time of day! Our favorite was the orange chair and footrest! Thank you Paul and Jayne for making this such a wonderful retreat and for opening your home for others to enjoy and appreciate.
Our vacation in Santa Barbara was great for many reasons. We loved Santa Barbara as a convenient get-away and the suite was very well suited for our needs. It was clean, spacious, and so well located for exploring Santa Barbara and area. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the suite and we hope to stay again on our next visit to Santa Barbara.
We just love this spot in Santa Barbara. It is perfectly located for walking to the beach or to town. It is clean and has all the things you need for a get-away.
We appreciate the bottled water as we were active each morning for our hour walk along the beach. The hosts are gracious and wanted to make sure our trip was memorable, which it was!!
Immaculate and spacious condo near the beach and trolley into town. The owner has provided many extras, from beach chairs and towels to an over brimming activities binder and a fullly equipped kitchen. Near noisy Highway 101, but so is much of Santa Barbara, even more posh and higher priced properties.
We are 1 block to our beautiful East Beach. East Beach has a locals favorite for breakfast, called 'East Beach Grill' This is nothing fancy and we prefer their breakfast over lunch menu. Pete's coffee, simple breakfast menu but right on the beach and thats the best part. The Santa Barbara Zoo is within walking distance and we are next to Dwight Murphy Park if you have children and they love baseball,soccer, par course etc... The Hyatt is a hop,skip and jump and they have a cozy bar if you want to walk and have a drink and appetizer in a nice setting. You can walk on the beach to the 'World Famous' spa and dining room at the Biltmore Hotel in Montiecto. The Sunday morning brunch is stunning and the Thursday night Seafood Buffet is so fresh and clean. Reservations suggested. The SB bird refuge is within walking distance and the beauty of our location is that it is somewhat out of the craziness of state street. We are about a 20-30 minute walk to state street (in less if your a power walker) or you can take the little electric bus for .50 and return for .50.
Great Location,great accommodation,great town!!
