Guestbook comments from the owner

We have used the VRBO site previously for vacation rentals in Coronado, CA. We had one very good experience and one not so good experience. Brooke did come recommended through a friend of a friend who has rented properties in the Santa Barbara area through her for some time. But I had actually already been on the website which I found very easy to use, the photo's were excellent and had already had some communication with Brooke through email when the connection was made with the friend. The service and personable communication was the same throughout and I am a client that dots the i's and crosses the t's with a lot of questions.

My husband said that he had a couple of conversations with you (owner) during our visit and appreciated your attention to the home and how our stay was going but he also mentioned that this was the first time you had used a management company. Since I handled all the details of the rental I wanted you to know that you have made a good choice with Brooke and her staff at Santa Barbara Vacation Rentals.

We not only will use Brooke again (and we appreciate the credit for a future trip) but would love to stay in your wonderful home again. Our entire family enjoyed all of the amenities and that the home was everything it was represented to be.

An Excellent House

  • 5 of 5

The Mountain View Retreat home provides an extremely comfortable, spacious, beautiful, complete, and convenient residence for spending some quality Santa Barbara time. We spent the month of February here getting away from the East Coast winter and enjoyed every day. In spite of the unusually heavy rain (of course, much needed by all of CA), we enjoyed our escape to beautiful SB and the house provided all the comfort of home we needed. The owner and the management company both provided excellent, friendly interaction and responded quickly to inquiries and requests. We would have no hesitation returning in the future. If you find your way here, consider yourself lucky indeed.

We enjoyed our visit and everything about the house. We would have loved to stay iat the house just to relax but our daughter was getting married in Santa Barbara and we spent much of the time with them. Would love to come again just to enjoy the spa, pool and outdoor living!

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every moment of our stay in this beautiful home. The views were breath-taking, the house was beautifully furnished and amenities made it a very comfortable stay. We enjoyed making ourselves at home, as we cooked, hiked in the mountains, swam in the pool, relaxed in the hot tub & played billiards! Also, the distance to downtown Santa Barbara was quite convenient. The owner was kind enough to personally welcome us. He and the management company were very helpful throughout our stay. Thank you for an amazing place to make wonderful family memories!!
