Nice stay in Santa Barbara

  • 3 of 5

The property was conveniently located and the exterior landscaping was very nice. Inside, the unit was dated, did not provide a dishwasher, kitchen lighting was dark, and the bathroom sink drained slowly. We would probably look for something better on our next rip to beautiful Santa Barbara.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to leave a review for our property - we value feedback from our guests. We apologize for the slow draining sink and as soon as we were notified, sent our maintenance team to fix the issue. This home does not have a dishwasher and is advertised as so. We do hope you will consider staying with us again in the future - it is important to us that our guests have a wonderful time during their stay in Santa Barbara!

The Santa Barbara Gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in Santa Barbara for many years. We've stayed at some wonderful places but this is our favorite home. We are a retired couple on a fixed income and visit our daughter for 6 weeks each winter in Santa Barbara. It is tough to find one bedroom rentals in SB. The Upper East Side Gem was perfect for us. We also own vacation property which we rent through VRBO and we are very picky. So let me tell you what I loved:

Warm, cozy comfortable living room

Efficient kitchen with great cookware; no dishwasher, but this did not bother us

Great bed and linens

Large closet in bedroom with lots of storage

Lavender liners in all drawers

Roomy bathroom with nice tub and shower

Great washer and dryer

The best outdoor space in Santa Barbara!!!

Any minor glitches are quickly responded to by a top flight property management company...Katie, Kaitlin, Samantha and Sheri are great to work with.

The location is tops...close to the Mission where I went everyday and downtown. If you are a walker, you will enjoy this location. If you are too tired to walk home, hop in an Uber or Lyft car.

We loved this apartment so much that we are returning next year for 6 weeks. I miss the sent of jasmine wafting over the patio patio each morning, , the sunrises, the sunsets, the blooming roses, and the wonderful magnolia trees that bloomed on our last day.

We entertained friends a couple of times a week and the privacy of the patio was perfect. Helene and David have thought of everything and are the most gracious hosts we have encountered.

I wish them all the best with this top flight vacation home and look forward to seeing them in February 2016.

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get, a cute, cozy, clean vacation house. It has a beautiful patio and a nice grass area with lounge chairs in the back. Just a short hike to downtown state street.

Excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about this rental. Apartment was very clean, quiet, and well equipped with everything that I needed. The kitchen was fully outfitted for a serious chef. Very comfortable furniture including the bed and a wonderful outdoor area with a grill, table and chairs. The owners were very easygoing and friendly. They were full of great restaurant and sightseeing tips when asked. I would return to this place with no hesitation and plan to return this year. I stayed for one month and loved it.
