Here a few reviews from other listing sites, so you can book with confidence!

"This house exceeded all of my expectations and the managers were very detailed and helpful! The location of the house was perfect! It was 100% spacious enough for our party of 8. I give this house an 11 out of 10! The roof top deck was the cherry on top, amazing views!"

"Had a lovely weekend at this amazing home, which is even more beautiful in person than in photos!! The space was spacious and open, and most importantly - everything was super clean. Erik and Stacy, and Logan are great managers! They were available to answer all questions during our stay. I will definitely try to stay at this home if I'm ever in Santa Barbara again with a group of friends!"

"The house was amazing! You cannot beat the location. We walked everywhere! The beds were extremely comfortable and Erik and Stacy were so easy to communicate with. They answered all of my questions in a very timely manner and were extremely helpful when it came to dining and entertainment recommendations. I would love to come back and stay again!"

"This house was amazing from top to bottom. I stayed with a total of four people but another couple or two would have easily fit. The kitchen was stocked, the beds were super comfortable, location is perfect and the decor was amazing. The highest compliment I can throw out is we've already planned to come back for another amazing vacation".

*This beautiful space is half of a modern duplex. Make sure to check out our other listing for the other half of the duplex titled 'Striking Modern Funk Zone Loft'.

Full Disclosure: The 'Funk Zone' is the hottest urban area in Santa Barbara and as such has a dynamic and rapidly expanding energy. There is active nearby construction, zero lot lines, nearby train whistles, etc. This is very much an urban rental. Not appropriate for sensitive individuals seeking a rental in a traditional quiet neighborhood. Also not especially young child friendly. With all that said, this is the perfect rental for those looking for a fun and relaxing place in the heart of it all!

This was a girls getaway and we couldn't have found a more perfect location! Just a couple of blocks to the beach for some great hiking/walks, Stearn's Warf and State Street are all right there. We walked everywhere, wine tasting and great dining are just steps away. I wouldn't be too concerned about noise, the area is undergoing a revitalization so there is a fair amount of construction going on in the area but it was not an issue at all for us. Be sure to take the owners recommendations for dining. We ate dinner two nights at The Lark, a must place to dine!

There were four of us so we used the futon as a fourth bedroom, but I can't recommend it for more mature adults, not very comfortable, I ended up on the couch. Otherwise well equipped, maybe another hair dryer would be nice, one up and one down. Small things compared to everything else. Great location!!!
