La Casa Bonita!

What a little slice of heaven in the heart of Santa Barbara!
The house was warm and inviting! A place you step into and feel totally at home! It was immaculately clean! The kitchen was well stocked, the couch was comfy, the beds were comfy, and the patio was a get away in and of itself!
The location was perfect! While you could get in the car and drive if you chose to, we chose to park the car and explore on foot and bike. State street is just a couple blocks away. And if you can't find it on State Street, it can't be found! Great restaurants, nightlife, and more shopping than dollars in the bank! We ate at Joe's cafe for breakfast and went back in the evening for the best cocktails in town! We tried Buccatini's, a little Italian restaurant where we could sit on the sidewalk and observe the goings on. We also tried Mexican food at Casa Blanca - Yum! Backyard Bowl was yum for breakfast as well for oatmeal, fruit and yogurt lovers! At the end of State Street is the Funk Zone - for wine enthusiasts who want to taste without the worry of having to drive home! Super fun little area with a number of tasting rooms, some with music - and of course there are always fun people tasting wine! To the south a couple of blocks was the beach and the boardwalk. Great for walking or riding bikes! Brophy's is a must - its where the locals hang. Awesome cocktails and clam chowder. The basil vinagrette salad dressing was to die for!
If you are going to SB, I would highly recommend a stay at this Casa Bonita! We travel frequently and have stayed at the best of the best. This is right in there!
