We came back for our second long term stay this year at our "home away from home" the Double Dolphin! This year we stayed two months! We love the property, the location and especially the hosts Rick and Debby. Just like last year we had a fabulous time and discovered a few new things too. We enjoyed the original art show on the beach in Santa Barbara on Sunday mornings, tried some new hikes, visited Seaside Gardens (only five minutes away, free and a must see) ate tacos on the Ventura warf and went to bingo. My husband tried fishing on the Goletta Pier (no license required) tried out several new restaurants and learned how easy (and fun) it was to take the bus to the Farmer's Market. I love gardening, and Rick lets me take care of his plants while we are there and monitor his butterfly bush for Monarch caterpillars. I also love collecting sea glass and probably hauled home 10 lbs this year. Of course there were also three trips up into Wine Country too! The house is so comfortable, clean and well stocked - Rick and Debby have thought of everything! We really love the location in Summerland, a quiet, charming town, because it is easy to get to Santa Barbara and Carpenteria which are both about 5 miles away. There are lots of great beaches close by too. We are already planning our trip back next year - a lot of our friends are happy about that too because we seem to have lots of visitors and the house is perfect for that too! Thanks Rick and Debby - see you next year!
