We didn't do a lot of planning for our "mini-moon" -- the wedding was enough planning for us. But after a cross-country relocation and a busy week of celebrating, a little escape was exactly what we needed. Chris came to the rescue, even on short notice, with this gorgeous, affordable hide-away, tucked in the luscious Santa Barbara gardens we so admire. We took advantage of the amazing mountain-biking in the area (Romero Canyon and a day in the Ojai valley) and tried a number of the restaurants she recommended (Los Agaves was particularly awesome!). We were never disappointed! The room was clean, tasteful and cozy. We enjoyed pre-ride coffees on the patio, and post-ride naps with the screen door open, listening to the breeze rustle the wisteria (which also smelled amazing!!). Sunsets were stunning and we had an amazing view all the way to the ocean. The property itself was highly enviable, in a quiet area with the lovely K9 resident, Sunny, on patrol. It's located away from the main area of Santa Barbara, but as long as you have a car, it is totally fine - we never had trouble getting around or with directions. I would definitely stay here again, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Bonus: Chris has a water softener! So you can enjoy spa-like showering. :)
