Wedding Group Enjoys Our Stay

  • 4 of 5

This property met our needs very well with just a few issues worth mentioning.

Parking. Not that we didn't have a parking spot - we did - in a garage attached to the property and it was very safe and secure. However, we drive an extended cab pickup and we couldn't close the garage door and to get in and out took quite a bit of effort (forward a bit, backwards a bit, over and over) because of vehicles parked behind us - one of which wasn't running so it was always right behind our vehicle. Not the property owner's fault - we just weren't prepared to deal with the situation. Also, we had friends joining us who also had a large pickup (we were hauling things for the wedding and reception and needed these vehicles). Parking on the street is first come first serve and very rarely was there an open spot. Adjacent streets were 90 min. parking then you had to move. We dealt with it but it wasn't easy nor fun. It would be helpful to have the parking situation described thoroughly for future renters. Perhaps I should have mentioned the vehicles to the owner - either way, knowing to check on this will be helpful for future renters. I believe the owner indicated she will put this in her property description.

The mattress on the queen bed was too hard for our liking - but that's a personal opinion and for others may not be an issue. The water isn't very tasty so bring your own bottled source (Ralph's grocery is very close by!). There were no wash cloths in the bathroom, but we made do when showering. The TV (which we hardly watched so not a huge deal) is pretty old. There was a large locked storage cabinet that was empty (it has screened windows so you can see inside) - would have been nice to be able to use it for clothing.

On the positive side - the owner was very responsive and helpful. The location is great - we walked to a lot of areas - sometimes because we didn't want to have to give up the street parking spot and have to circle the wagons to find one again - but a little exercise is always good. There is a little balcony for sipping coffee in the morning but only 2 outdoor chairs as it's quite small - leaning on the railing works, though.

This would be an ideal place to stay for up to 4 people if you have only one standard sized vehicle to park. The separate bedroom was great - it was available for privacy purposes when getting dressed if the bathroom was occupied.

Knowing all this, we would stay there again. We recommend you consider it, too!

Owner's Response: I did host this group of 4. They did contact me about parking and the bed. The Penthouse is right in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara! Yes, parking on the street may be a challenge downtown Santa Barbara in the day time during week days. Parking on the street is not a problem in the evenings and on weekends. Mostly my guests who stay at the Downtown Penthouse have 1 car and park in the garage, no problem. This is the 1st I have heard about parking issues. Yes, if you have a large oversized vehicle it may be a challenge to park it in the garage. A standard sized car fits fine. As this group suggested I have posted a parking notice with the directions and check in instructions on the website and I also posted a parking notice in the Penthouse. As far as towels, I do provide 4 towel sets of a bath towel, hand towel and wash cloth. I will check with the cleaning crew on this. There is a cabinet in the Penthouse for storage. It was not locked. Unfortunately, this group did not turn the latch so they could open it. The TV is the large box style but it works well with many channels!
