A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the loveliest homes we have ever stayed in. The location was fabulous, the setting was amazing and we felt welcome the second we stepped into this beautiful home. I would definitely stay here again. I can't say enough about the view...it doesn't get better. The patio was perfect for sitting out and having morning coffee before the day began and for BBQs in the evening. I feel so lucky to have come across this home for our precious vacation time.

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a girls weekend getaway here and absolutely loved it. We were looking for a quiet place to relax and catch up with one another and definitely found that here. The views were amazing from the house. One morning we watched two humpback whales swim extremely close to the shoreline, almost as if they were putting on a show for us. We also spotted dolphins making their way up the coast, jumping in and out of water, it was fantastic! Two of our mornings we walked leisurely along the beach down to the Boathouse restaurant, which had amazing food. We would recommend this cottage to others in a heartbeat. :)

Oceanfront Gem

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming "coastal style" cottage on a bluff above Hendry's beach with absolutely stunning views. The photos only hint at the beauty of the setting. The location on the Mesa makes it convenient to everything Santa Barbara has to offer, but is so quiet, all you will hear is the constant breaking of the waves and the birds in the Monterey cypress on the patio. It could not be more relaxing. Gray whale sightings just offshore were a daily occurrence and countless dolphins came every morning to feed in the kelp bed at the base of the bluff. Watching the full moon light up the channel from the master bedroom was priceless.

The house is ideal for a family or small group that doesn't require too much privacy. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped. The fireplace and the fluffy blankets will come in handy as you will want to keep the windows and doors open. Laura was responsive and easy to work with, although we did not need to contact her as everything worked as advertised. One of the best vacations ever. Highly recommended.

The house was perfect! An original in the neighborhood and situated perfectly to local shopping and fabulous dining choices. It was so nice to live like a local! The owners have obviously been good to the community because when we mentioned where we were staying everyone knew them as spoke highly! I look forward to returning soon!

This home is on the coastline, in the heart of Santa Barbara. Five minutes to downtown and State Street, the wharf/harbor area, the Santa Barbara Mission and The Santa Barbara Zoo. It is located on a bluff above the ocean, public stairs to the beach are a block away. There are several museums, wonderful restaurants, amazing shopping and wine tasting. Many golf courses, parks, and a great gourmet grocery store are all close. Spa services are also available at Baccara or The Four Seasons Biltmore in Montecito.
