Great Place to Stay in SB!

  • 5 of 5

Alex's house was the perfect size for our group of 7 (although it could definitely accommodate a few more people if your group is a bit larger). It's in a very quiet neighborhood about 10 minutes away from State Street! The house has everything you could need, including a well-stocked kitchen, plenty of towels and linens, and eclectic decor. Thanks for having us Alex!

Charming and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this house. It was large and had plenty of space for us 9 girls on a bachelorette party weekend. It was also cozy and definitely had charm with all the art around the house. The girls were a bit unnerved by a few spider sightings but you're up in the quiet of the hills so that could be expected. The host was very communicative and helpful throughout the whole process.

Unique and spacious find in SB

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Art Lovers Retreat. We were welcomed by the owner to an open and airy space with music playing through the Sonos speakers! Lots of space with the 4 bedrooms plus den to accomadate 10 adults. Very eclectic and interesting art throughout the house too. Thanks for a great stay!

A beautiful, secluded retreat for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our trip with the entire family - grandparents, children, and grandchildren. Our group of 6 adults and 4 kids was very comfortable here. The location is a little out of town but a 10-15 minute drive ($20 uber ride) to anywhere you want to go and it provided the kind of quiet seclusion that you couldn't get downtown or near the harbor.

Comfortable, eclectic home

  • 4 of 5

Some amazing art on the walls! Despite the staircase our 1 and 3 year old grandsons managed well. They stayed out of the multiple shelves and enjoyed the large den as a play space. Beds were comfortable. The weather was a little chilly for outside living (large open yard) but the adults enjoyed one evening of patio ping pong. The landscaping is a marvel, especially for a Midwesterner. Plenty of cookery items (and cookbooks galore) if you want to cook--but it is Santa Barbara. (My grown children recommend the Mesa Verde vegetarian restaurant.) Overall, a very pleasant stay.
