Great Affordable Family Rental

  • 5 of 5
Santa Barbara is our hometown, and we spent a week here with our children and grandchildren. The backyard and separate recreation room were so well stocked with adult and children's toys that it was hard to leave and enjoy the beautiful city and beaches of Santa Barbara. The location was somewhat secluded while being within minutes of the beaches shopping and town. We only used the main house for sleeping and cooking, so we didn't feel crowded with 6 adults and 5 children.

Nikole has furnished this home with far more than is found in the usual rental. The beds were comfortable. The outdoor shower has hot and cold water--great for the beach. We were able to get wifi in the house as well as the rec room, though it was slow. The kitchen had everything you would possible need. The two patio tables seated our entire family and we grilled and ate out every night.

It was abnormally hot during part of our stay (Santa Barbara rarely needs air conditioning). It would have been nice for the third bedroom to have a window unit too. Otherwise open windows are fine for cross-ventilation.

This is a comfortable older home that has been thoughtfully furnished and remodeled. It's convenient to UCSB, Santa Barbara and the wineries of the Santa Ynez Valley. Our family enjoyed it so much that we hope to return next year.

Fantastic rental at an affordable price!

  • 4 of 5
We're just winding down our Spring Break vacation in Nikole's Santa Barbara bungalow. Wow, for the price of a very basic hotel room, we feel as if we've hit the jackpot here! Definitely coming back.

We were eager to find a location that could comfortably accommodate our family of 4 (2 adults, 1 child, 1 dog). Seriously, this place is a dream. Our son and dog have worn "permaGRINs" since the moment we opened the front door.

Some highlights of our stay:
- sand volleyball court: OMG, such a treat!
- ping pong table: one outdoors, and another inside the adjacent game room — we've had a family tourney going all week!
- hot tub: perfectly situated off the master bedroom
- outdoor shower: we used it after returning from the beach each day — now I want to install one at home!
- chicken coop: seriously folks, FRESH eggs for breakfast every morning!
- quiet: location is in close proximity to stores and downtown amenities, but far enough away to maintain solitude.
- firepit: we roasted marshmallows and sang a few songs around the fire last night. Our dog thoroughly enjoyed running throughout this area of the property, which is located furthest away from the home.
- basketball hoop: located just a few steps away from the ping pong table, our son gleefully rotated between the two!

A few minor areas for improvement:
- BBQ grill: we're avid BBQ'ers and would have appreciated a cleaner grill. Food and grease from former guests has permeated the grates, making it difficult to cook.
- XBOX 360: we tried using the device to play Rock Band the other night and had difficulties getting the game to load. The CD/DVD tray kept getting jammed. Pretty sure it's due to the device being aged — not that big of a deal, since we had plenty of other activities to keep us busy.
- mattresses: we used beds in two of the three bedrooms. Mattresses were mediocre, but not unbearable. Maybe consider an upgrade down the road?

This Place Has Everything

  • 5 of 5
Visited during the MLK weekend with a group of 10 to celebrate a birthday. Though a bit unassuming from the front, don't be fooled - this place is HUGE.

The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils, plates, etc and even included some extra goodies that came in handy. (Heart-shaped pancakes griddle, anyone?)

We brought our puppy along for the vacation and he was as sad as anyone to leave the sprawling backyard. Beyond the massive volleyball court, there's a little pathway which leads to a "tribal council"-esque fire pit - perfect for all your wildest s'mores fantasies. Also, there's a detached gameroom which is literally the size of a studio apartment in itself.

The neighborhood is very quiet - which wasn't a problem so much as a startling observation from our LA-based group. Every conversation - even barely above a normal tone - easily carried from backyard. So despite the infinite possibilities, definitely not a location for any primal screaming or unfulfilled Spring Break adventures.

That being said, it's in a great location - right off the 101 and 10-15 mins to the Arroyo Burro and Downtown.

One caveat - though the house technically sleeps 10, would say that the two singles and futon might be a little on the small side for full grown adults. We actually had two of the party opt to sleep in the couches in the game room, which were a little bit more comfortable.

All in all, a fantastic home rental and I would stay here a million times over. After the initial reservation was made, Nikole was extremely helpful in answering questions and provided all the information we needed for our stay.

Thanks, Nikole!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We have actually replaced the futon with a bunk bed that is a single on top and a double on the bottom. So hopefully it will be a bit more comfy.

We could not have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5
My family flew in for my daughter's Santa Barbara wedding. The house easily accommodated us and could not have been more comfortable. Close enough to freeway to go anywhere, but we hated leaving the property and the incredible back yard and amenities. We were able to host friends for dinner and the kitchen is fully equipped to make it a pleasure. The owner is lovely and very attentive to her guests needs. I would definitely recommend this property and hope to return next year to celebrate my daughter's first anniversary!

Great for a family get away

  • 5 of 5
We brought our two boys, my mom, and our pug, Along with our bikes and surfboards and wet suits. It made for an amazing home base for our summer vacation. We all loved the sand court for volleyball, badminton and just playing with toy cars in the sand. We were there for a week and were able to host two other families for a fun bbq. We also enjoyed "grown up" conversation outside and in the main house while the kids played xbox or watched a movie in the play room. The pictures are accurate, it was clean and met our needs. It was out of the way and quiet but we were close enough to go to all the Fiest festivities and horseback riding up the 101. The outdoor shower was perfect for after the beach and then we got in the hot tub! We hope to visit again!

Perfect for family vacation with teenage children

  • 5 of 5
Before arrival we were wondering, if this house would meet our expectations, which were high after having seen the photos on the internet and having read the reviews. We were not disappointed; actually the house and surroundings exceeded our expectations. The description of this wonderful house is honest, and it was perfect for our family with 5 teenage children who love sports and enjoy being outdoors. The location was perfect for our outings to Solvang, Camarillo Premium Outlets, the beach and LA. Santa Barbara city is also absolutely wonderful. We warmly recommend staying here and we will definitely come back.
