My fiance and I eloped to Santa Barbara and stayed here during our trip. The property is incredible, the suite is very comfortable and the hosts are just the nicest people! As dog lovers, bringing our 90lb black lab with us was non-negotiable, and this place had a wonderful outdoor space him. Everything was quite lovely and we are already discussing our next trip to SB so we can stay here again.

Like Staying at a Resort - Amazing Santa Barbara Hidden Gem and Dog Friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the President's Day weekend in the guest suite at Anne and Barry's beautiful Santa Barbara hillside property. The two bedroom unit is private, very comfortable and nicely decorated. We had full access to their patio and pool area and the fully fenced backyard which our golden retriever totally loved. The wrap around views of the City, the Harbor, East Beach and the Santa Barbara Channel Islands from the front bedroom/study are truly spectacular, especially at night. Anne is the perfect host - very attentive when we needed assistance and respectful of our privacy when we were just kicking back. The property is a five minute drive from downtown Santa Barbara and the waterfront and less than 45 minutes from Santa Ynez Valley wineries and the quaint Danish-themed town of Solvang. We both grew up in Santa Barbara, and still have family in the area, so we are very familiar with the town and everything it has to offer. But if this had been our first visit, we would have appreciated the local books, pamphlets and maps that Anne provided in the guest suite and her knowledge of the area and willingness to recommend places to go and what to see. All in all, we had a very positive experience and highly recommend the property if you are planning a visit to Santa Barbara. We will be back for sure!

Beautiful property with landscaped gardens and a fabulous view of Santa Barbara Channel

  • 5 of 5

This two-room apartment was a comfortable size for the three of us. The apartment was well provisioned with food and beverages to get us started on arrival. We appreciated simple amenities such as scissors and tape to wrap Christmas presents. The owners were very friendly and helpful, while respecting our privacy. We found the master bed softer than our preference. The swimming pool is beautiful. Morning swim and watching the hummingbird feed was a highlight of the day. We could easily spend a month there.

Excellent stay in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 4 nights at Anne & Barry's beautiful hillside apartment. The apartment was perfectly furnished with everything you might need, including snacks & drinks (loved the wine!). I loved looking out over the bay from the west side bedroom - so beautiful! The location is perfect, just a few miles from the beach and great restaurants. December was a bit cool for pool time, but we appreciated the beautiful backyard and view.

We spent time walking the beaches, and visited Goleta Monarch Butterfly Grove, the Court house and the Mission (plus a few wine tastings). Santa Barbara is a lovely town and Anne and Barry were the perfect hosts. If you wanted to chat or receive local advice, they offered it. Or if you wanted to come and go as you please, they were fine with that too. They couldn't have made the stay any better. I'm so glad we chose this option over a hotel -- it felt like home!

Franconia, NH

Just as represented on line! A real delight.

  • 5 of 5

We have a rental home ourselves in Franconia Notch, NH and are always complimented on our concierge service of sorts and cleanliness. We take pride in that our guests enjoying their time at our place. Perhaps due to that, I'm more hesitate than others to hope for the same when traveling. Anne and Barry were the best, they have it down! Great communication and accommodations that were just as represented on line! No disappointment. Very clean, fully stocked frig with goodies to get you started. With the rooms being pool, patio side the space felt extra spacious and open. Being an outside person and not fond of being confined to indoors this was luxury! The beds were very comfortable, I chose the one that looked to the pool and sunrise. The other looks out over the Bay. The location was quiet and convenient with morning walks just out the front door. Close to town for easy access to my son who is living downtown. Beach and State St. also, all so close. Anne offered up great recommendations for dining and other sites. Highly recommend but save us room for when we return! Thank you Anne.
