4 star place at motel 6 price

  • 5 of 5
Great value for the money. Clean and quiet. Chris (the host) is very friendly and very helpful. Rooms/bathrooms have everything (fridge, microwave, coffee maker, cups, good quality toilet paper, etc, etc. No kitchen, no kitchen sink so either bring microwave ready food and disposable paper plates or eat in the city. Two very adorable, super friendly dogs. No cleaning fee (huge plus!)
In summary, the best value in Santa Barbara area.

Nice location, pleasant but fussy host

  • 3 of 5
The location of the unit is very nice – a beautiful garden setting with a view towards the city. It is a little out of town, but close enough to be convenient. The unit is small but cozy. There is no kitchen, only a toaster oven and microwave. The owner was friendly and gave us extra filtered water, towels, and good tips for local activities. On the other hand, she asked for a cleaning deposit, and when we arrived, she discouraged us from cooking, and told us not to wash dishes in the bathroom sink or wear shoes inside. As a result, we ate out and tried extra hard not to mess anything up. Happily, we got our cleaning deposit back. However, the neatnik atmosphere took an edge off the visit and cost us extra money. If you are ok with this style, you’ll find it to be a delightful place.

Owner's Response: It is unfortunate that my standard policies and helpful suggestions were misunderstood as me being a “fussy host”.

Unlike other vacation rentals, I do not charge “cleaning deposits” or cleaning fees. I only charge a standard security deposit as part of the reservation process that is returned in-full to tenants after they leave the unit without extensive damage. The security deposit was, per usual, returned to this couple. I never referred to the security deposit as a “cleaning deposit” or a cleaning fee while communicating with them.

The no shoes policy, which is clearly stated under my vacation rental listing, helps ensure that the carpet be kept in good condition for current and future guests. Santa Barbara has beautiful beaches, hiking trails and outdoor activities which could lead to dirty shoes. This simple, easy-to-follow policy is intended for the benefit of my guests.
The room is equipped with a refrigerator, microwave and toaster oven. But consistent with the vacation rental listing, there is not a full kitchen i.e. a stove as misinterpreted by this couple. I provide paper plates and regular plates. I even volunteered to exchange the dirty dishes with new ones for my guests if they do not want to use paper plates, as a bathroom sink is not the ideal or convenient place to do this. I do provide dish washing liquid in the bathroom cabinet for those who wants to wash their own dishes. It is unfortunate that my offer to make this couple’s stay more convenient was misinterpreted.

This couple was very polite and respectful to the rental unit, but there was obviously some miscommunication in regards to their stay.

Warm and wonderful welcoming place!

  • 5 of 5
We spent the first week in this wonderful holiday place when we moved from Europe to Santa Barbara. Our stay at this place was a great start here. We felt very welcome and Chris had so many useful informations for us. Chris is incredibly sweet and welcoming and helped out with so many things. We always had our breakfast on the terrace with the view of the stunning garden in company of hummingbirds and Chris' friendly lab "Sunny", and we enjoyed our stay very much. Our room was the smallest on the property but we had everything we needed and we felt that we could always ask if we needed anything else. It was the perfect place to start the living in our new town, so I can only recommend this rental to anyone who wants to spend time in Santa Barbara and the area.

Wedding Stay

  • 5 of 5
Visted Santa Barbara for a friend's wedding. Got in late Thursday night and left early the following Sunday. Staying here was much more pleasant than a hotel. Chris was very helpful and friendly and made our stay quite comfortable.

Zen Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect jewel of a find for a 3 day stay in Santa Barbara. We came for a wedding, and to see Santa Barbara and had a perfect, quiet hideaway. Our room was clean and our host was the best in making our stay relaxing in a home environment, even providing suggestions as what to see, and where to dine while we were vacationing. We would definitely come back to this jewel of a zen hideaway in Santa Barbara!
