Great place to call a home for a few days in Santa Barbara
My SO and I came down for 3 nights and stayed at the Birds Nest. The place is easy to find and very comfortable inside. It's close to downtown, where a lot of the good food and shops are. We went hiking, paddle boarding, shopping, and general exploring. When we return to Santa Barbara this will be the first place I look at to stay.
Thanks so much for staying at the Bird's Nest! We're so happy you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to hosting you the next time you are visiting Santa Barbara!
Wonderful rental. Felt like home.
The Bird's Nest was a great place to spend some time and relax. It was the cleanest rental I've ever seen. The bed was comfortable. The water pressure and hot water were good. We cooked some meals in the kitchen. All the details has been taken care of in advance. Coffee, tea, condiments and all cooking utensils were provided. The location was ideal for walking around downtown. The owners were quick to respond to emails. The restaurant choices were abundant. The owners recommended Opal and Jane, both a short walk away, both excellent choices. The owners were also quick to refund the security deposit.
I would choose this rental again for a trip to Santa Barbara.
Thanks so much for staying at The Bird's Nest. We're so happy you enjoyed your time in Santa Barbara. Hope you'll come back soon!
Comfortable bed, nice chairs to sit in to hang out (my husband loved them) and updated furnishings.
This was the perfect place for my husband and me during our weekend getaway for a good friends wedding! Very cute, comfortable and full of amenities. We loved everything about it! Cristy was great at communicating all directions and pertinent information in a timely manner. Thanks again for the hospitality!
Thanks so much for staying with us! Hope to have you back next time you're in Santa Barbara.
Perfect weekend getaway
Access to The Bird's Nest was easy and our late night arrival was easily accommodated. Everything was clean and neat, and there were waters and coffee for us! We appreciated our stay and would definitely recommend! Close driving distance to State Street and off street parking were key!
Great little place close to State St.
The Birds Nest is a great little place to stay either with your spouse or by yourself. We were greeted by two bottles of wine and a bottle of champagne! The studio is well equipped with all the necessary essentials. It could get a little warm, but they do have a fan in the common area and near the bed which helped a lot. Also, I would recommend a small sliding door for the bathroom. All in all we had a great time and would definitely stay here again.
