My recent on e month stay in property 404274.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Dana and Liz's guesthouse for a bit over a month and really enjoyed my stay. The property itself is a couple of miles north of upper State St but is easy to drive to upper State (shopping and restaurants etc) and about 10 minute drive to central Santa Barbara. The distance described is somewhat of an advantage really since you are away from the city congestion. The guesthouse is near the street while the owner resides in the rear of the property. Dana and Liz are always available for help in navigating and enjoying Santa Barbara, which is a real jewel to visit. The guesthouse is accurately described in VRBO; I found no problems whatsoever in the facilities or the furnishings. In particular, the kitchen worked fine for me, the bed I used (there are 3) was clean and comfortable, the bath was small but adequate, the TV was medium size but perfectly adequate. I especially like the quiet nature of the neighborhood. I would certainly choose to stay again should the opportunity arise.

Beautiful guest house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Santa Barbara. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed. Very comfortable beds and nice sitting area. It was close to everything. Our friends were less than a mile away. Liz and Dana were wonderful, hardly knew they were around. We will definitely book again when we come to visit.

Weekend get away with kids

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed staying at this beautiful Santa Barbara property. We loved that it was in a secluded, quiet part of Santa Barbara yet close enough to get to the major spots in town. We were in town for a swim meet (our children are on a club team) and this was the perfect spot for us. The place was clean, quiet - it had everything we needed.

An amazing stay in a very cozy and comfortable flat. Really nothing to complain about. The owners, Dana and Liz, are great, extremely warm and nice

and make sure everything was smooth during our 6 week stay there. Flat is well made, full of light, with comfortable living area and main bedroom. Second bedroom slightly on the small side but our three young kids loved it anyway. Safe and family friendly area, 2Km from upper State street with private parking. Shopping mall with nice supermarket and restaurants (La Cumbre) also at 2Km, by State street. Would love to come back to Santa Barbara and will definitely choose this one again.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful rental! The 2nd bedroom actually has more beds than the picture shows! It sleeps 5 or 6. There are 2 twins & 2 full sized beds in there (incl loft) It's perfect. Ideal location in beautiful San Roque area. Owners Liz & Dana are so hospitable & nice. Dana works in construction, so you can imagine this condo is BEAUTIFULLY built! We will most definitely be back. It's also centrally located & within a few minutes to everything!
