Excerpts from a sweet note left by our guests:
Thank you Victoria. We had a wonderful time. Everything was just lovely!
We enjoyed our stay at West Beach. It was within walking distance of the beach, wharf, and harbor as well as downtown.
The unit was very comfortable and well-equipped. We were disappointed with it being a non-smoking unit, to have a smoke smell coming from the old carpet in master bedroom. Carpets in both bedroom need cleaning or replacing.
But, overall it was a nice place and Victoria's mom was helpful with any questions. We very much enjoyed our time in Santa Barbara.
We really enjoyed our stay at Victoria's rental from Sep 3rd - 6th and didn't want to leave. It was very roomy, clean and extremely comfortable for the 4 of us. The rental had everything we needed and more. Parking was always available on the street outside the home, as it is a residential area. It is very private and has 2 patios, off the kitchen and master bedroom. The closets are spacious and the beds comfortable. The beach & piers, shopping, funk zone and downtown are a very short walk. If you're in town for wine tasting, make sure to get a map (coupons for free tastings) from the visitor's center. There's no need for a car or DD when wine tasting, just a short walk. Lots of restaurants nearby, including our favorite Italian one, Toma restaurant (make reservations ahead of time) and Enterprise Fish Co (great happy hour). Victoria answered our questions immediately, thoroughly and promptly returned our refund after our stay. Don't hesitate renting this property, you won't be disappointed. Next time we plan a visit to SB, we will contact Victoria first!
This was a great property for our family as we were in Santa Barbara for a wedding. Great Location! 1.5 blocks from the beach and wharf and Sambo's Restaurant for breakfast. We were able to walk to State Street and enjoy the restaurants and shopping. You could even take the train to SB and walk to this location. It was a short drive to many attractions: the courthouse, the mission and Alameda Park. The property was clean. Beds were comfortable. Internet connection was good. We had a little difficulty figuring out the TV but Victoria was very helpful and had her nephew come over to help and it was an easy fix. Security deposit was refunded within 24 hours of checking out. We would definitely stay here again.
In addition to the fantastic location, beautiful neighborhood and incredible weather, the condo was perfect. The decor, including the retro bathrooms, was lovely. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to use; the beds were all extremely comfortable with crisp sheets and great pillows. It was very apparent that much care is taken prior to each visit to make everything clean, welcoming and perfect. When we travel back to Santa Barbara we would love to stay here again. Thank you so much!
Our family enjoyed a 4 night stay at the West Beach Retreat. The location is within a short walk to the Beach, boardwalk, harbor, wharf, coffee shop, bike rental, etc. We rented bikes our first night and rode them up and down the beach, etc. every day and they were stored in the fenced patio in the back. We especially loved the small patio with grill right off the kitchen and all the space we had in this home. There was plenty of room in each bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen was very well stocked with spices, etc and all cooking supplies. We had frun walking to and from the beach and it was nice just opening up all the windows and hanging out inside. We never had a single problem finding a parking spot on the curb. The only thing that surprised us a little was all of the construction that was going on along state street from the Cabrillo street (beach) north for about quarter mile or so. The direct route to State street from the Retreat is cut off because of the construction, but the detour is not far at all. And no construction noise could be heard at all from the home. Overall we loved our stay at West Beach Retreat. The property was clean when we arrived, the description was accurate, and we would certainly recommend this property to others.
