Guestbook comments from the manager
I felt so comfortable here- slept wonderfully (an accomplishment!) and loved my "secret" garden, front yard. Such a convenient location!



I will be back, often!

Lovely Place and Garden

  • 5 of 5
The one bedroom was perfect for a 10 day stay. My daughter had 2 graduation ceremonies 1 week apart so I had a great excuse to stay in Santa Barbara. I liked especially the location up the hill. So I walked into town every day (slow walking plus greeting friendly cats in the neighborhood, 30 minutes)
The owner Lena was so nice and accommodating, she had no problems me giving an after graduation reception here. The garden was lovely for this. My family and friends totally enjoyed this location. I want to come back.

Wonderful Spot

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had to make an emergency trip to Santa Barbara as our daughter is a student at UCSB and was very shaken by the events in Isla Vista. Lena was incredibly accommodating to us in every way. Also, her suite is beautiful, comfortable and quiet. I know many people think they need to find a place on the beach. But I highly recommend this peaceful spot with a beautiful garden and fountain and a gracious host.

Amazing apartment in beautiful Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5
I was staying in this wonderful apartment for about six weeks, and I had an excellent time in Santa Barbara. The apartment is located in the upscale Riviera area of Santa Barbara, about half way up the hill. The neighborhood is quiet, and there are some beautiful villas located here. You also get some amazing views of the ocean when walking through this neighborhood (which is highly recommended!). The city centre can be reached by foot, but it's a long walk, so a car is recommended - then it just takes five minutes to all the central locations and the excellent shopping area of SB. The apartment itself is clean and nicely decorated. It includes a fully usable kitchen, a bath room with steam sauna functionality, and you also have a beautiful garden for your personal use (it cannot be viewed from the street, so this is really *your* garden). Lena, the host, is super kind and provides you with many tips on what to do in Santa Barbara. She also responds very quickly if there are questions regarding the apartment. Overall, I enjoyed my stay at this apartment very much - I can absolutely recommend it; it's simply amazing. I also checked other apartments when planning my trip to Santa Barbara, but I was very glad that I chose this one over some other locations close to the city centre (as this neighborhood is probably one of the nicest in the whole city). Thanks again to Lena for letting me rent this little gem - and I will definitely come back!

Wonderful Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of three from the UK and this was our first visit to Santa Barbara and we could not have chosen a better place to stay! The accommodation itself was perfect: compact, yet with everything you could want and so conveniently located.

Lena had made sure that we had everything we would need: a fully equipped kitchen, a wonderful collection of books, loads of magazines and brochures relating to the area, contact numbers for restaurants and taxi companies, washer/dryer and iron and the list goes on. I had a time dragging my husband away from the wonderful massage chair! Lena also included many thoughtful touches like wine and tea/coffee, an excellent assortment of toiletries and so on.

We were travelling car-free and we could easily walk from Lena's to all the main attractions we wanted to see including Stearn's Wharf and beaches, downtown and The Mission.

Lena was kind and helpful and really went out of her way to make our stay a comfortable and pleasant experience and we consider her a friend. We will be moving to Santa Barbara in the near future and will definitely stay at Lena's while we find our feet there. We can't recommend Lena and her wonderful 'home away from home' enough!

A 100% cozy and romantic retreat!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed 3 months at this amazing place. The tranquility, the beautiful garden and all the modern comfort, which this well-maintained property offers, left nothing to be desired.
It became a home away from home. The owner provided a hugh variety of tips for restaurants, activities and shoping facilities. I was always welcome to ask for recommendations.
The location of the property is close to the main attractions of Santa Barbara.
I had a great time in Santa Barbara and lots of wonderful experiences.
Thank you so much. I´ll come again.

We have found our home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This is great for a couple who is getting away for a few days and wants to be close to State Street. The fridge is a little small, so if you love to cook like we do, you may want to take a small cooler to hold a few additional things. If you arrive late at night, bring a flashlight as it can be pretty dark from the entry gate to the cottage door. Aside from that, everything was perfect. This place is piece of heaven up in the hills of Santa Barbara.

Make sure to use the shower sauna the first day, not the last. It was amazing.

The kitchen is great and the amenities like the garden were just what you need to disconnect. The fountain and over-sized wind chimes in your private garden help you relax. We often had the door open during the daytime to let the cool breeze come in as it had just rained the night before. Lena, the owner, was very helpful and accommodating and ensures you are enjoying your stay.

We visit Santa Barbara a few times a year and my wife and I will certainly be back to rent again from Lena.

Thank you, Lena!
