About owner/property manager

Born and raised in Santa Barbara, I returned a few years ago after living all over the world thanks the the US Navy! Having spent time on both coasts, England, Turkey, Germany, Costa Rica, Alaska...I'm thrilled to be back home! As a local I went to high school here and then on to UCSB, later graduating from California Western School of Law in San Diego. I currently split my time between Santa Barbara and Whitefish, Montana. I'm lucky that I have these two gorgeous places to call home, the best of both worlds!

owner/property manager purchased this apartment in 1953

Why owner/property manager chose Santa Barbara

Privately owed and operated, this property has been in my family for over 50 years. Uniquely undeveloped and private setting over looking Santa Barbara has always provided an oasis in paradise for me and home to many landscape artists over the years. It's a magical spot in a beautiful city.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location, location! Where else can you enjoy panoramic views of the city, mountains and beaches and be in the center of a 15 acre oak grove in the middle of Santa Barbara?

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED our stay at Lola's rental. The location of this property is unbeatable. It is quiet and secluded up in the mountains, yet very close to all the key attractions. The apartment was very clean and beautifully decorated. The view from the balcony was amazing. The apartment was well equipped and had everything we needed. Lola was very kind to supply a crib set and a high chair for our baby, which was very nice. Lola also gave us very good restaurant recommendations. Everyone loved our mini vacation and we can't wait to come back! We would highly recommend this property.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Oasis in Paradise. The unit was very clean and the property manager was very helpful. Lola, the owner, was pleasant to deal with. The views are incredible. I would highly recommend this property.

Retreat away from home

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend surprised me for my birthday weekend with a trip to beautiful Santa Barbara. The way to the home was very secluded and was high up in the mountains. Upon entering the home, our view from the balcony was spectacular and eye dropping. The breeze, and view was so relaxing and comforting. The home had everything we could possibly want. Full kitchen. Internet access. Cable television. It truly felt like it was a home away from home.

The home was in a prime location as it's about 5-10 minutes from everything. We brought our two small dogs with us and the home was very accommodating as it had plenty of grass by the parking area and it was on the first floor so it made getting in/out very accessible. The parking was great as it was just a few steps away from the home and we could see our vehicle right outside the bedroom window.

I do want to note that the water heater didn't work when we arrived, and we contacted the property manager of the issue. The owner immediately called us and was very apologetic. She offered us another location to stay at while the property manager came in to install a new water heater. She even met us at the second location, and helped us with our bags. She continued to text us throughout the weekend to make sure we were comfortable and if we needed anything else. She gave us tips of the locations in the area, and she treated us as friends and not merely as tenants. I was truly impressed at her generosity since she was the actual owner and not the property manager whom was also a nice gentlemen.

This was truly a great birthday weekend and I would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words! It was really nice meeting you guys and hosting you on your birthday weekend. The best part of this business is meeting wonderful people from all over the world. I do take great pride in my property and hospitality and am grateful for your understanding regarding the water heater.

View and area were great but rental not as expected

  • 2 of 5
The rental was very outdated, stove and oven I found very unclean and very outdated. I never used them. Whole kitchen really outdated. Owner never greeted or contacted me, only called to make sure I would be out by 11am for the next guests, this after I spent two weeks there! Can hear neighbors above walking and flushing toliets... wish I had known before hand as I find that very annoying and would have never rented as I have a problem with this. Great view from patio as advertised and nice area to walk your pet. Lots of pets in complex. Tom, the apt manager was very nice.

Owner's Response: Susan, I am so sorry you had such a terrible stay in Santa Barbara. I pride myself in my property and have always maintained high standards and upkeep of my units. As I explained in an email to you, when I'm away on travel, I have an onsite property manager who checks guests in and answers all questions. Unless Tom or I are contacted after check in, I do not disturb my guests and leave them to their privacy. This is a very quiet and private estate, with most of my tenants staying for 5 years or longer. They are all professional and very respectful of others. Since we enjoy 15 acres of private oak filled beauty, I allow pets in the units. This is why you were able to bring your pup. This summer I have been very fortunate to have back to back bookings. I always tell guests if the next guest is arriving later than 1.00 pm, they may take their time checking out. I wish you the best of luck in your future travels. Lola

Best friends meeting up for a weekend get away

  • 5 of 5
It was rough trying to find a suitable place on graduation/fathers day weekend.
We could not believe how lucky we were to land this find!
The owners made everything super easy and were available at the drop of the hat for any questions.
The apartment was very clean, had lots of light and extremely comfortable.
That doesn't even touch the view...WOW!
We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
