About The Owner

Having grown up in Santa Barbara, I truly appreciate everything that has made this town such a wonderful place. Its history, its people, its surroundings. Having traveled the world as a TV producer and director, I can honestly say, it is hard to find a better year-round destination anywhere. I have brought this great appreciation for Santa Barbara to all of the properties that I have built and remodeled. We do everything to make sure you enjoy your visit.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1999

Why The Owner chose Santa Barbara

Uniquely situated between the mountains and the sea, historic Santa Barbara takes you back in time to the years of Missions, Presidios and a casual life-style. Once one of the leading power cities of California, Santa Barbara keeps its early Spanish architecture and character alive. Enjoy the outdoors, excellent restaurants, and a bit of history -- it's a special place.

What makes this cottage unique

A charming Craftsman style complex in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. Convenient, spacious and comfortable. One of a kind mountain views. Multiple decks allowing sun or shade any time of the year. We take pride in making your home away from home a memorable stay.

Great place and location

  • 4 of 5

Was in town with my wife and mother and we rented this villa. Great location close to downtown Santa Barbara with some great views of the nearby hills; and the unit is very nice. We were a bit cold the first night and couldn't find the thermostat (the owner explained it was hidden near the floor behind a chest/dresser); but otherwise our stay was perfect.

Choice stay in heart of Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

Loved every minute and detail! Passionfruit vine on staircase, multiple balconies and airy, light feeling to the apartment was delightful. The master area is in a L-alcove so still private for our parents and the screen across the area where the second set of beds offered sufficient privacy for us (my sister and I stayed there), so a good set up for a family of 4. Very comfortable beds fyi. For those in active condition, its a nice walk to State Street and in the vicinity of the historic center of Santa Barbara, otherwise a short drive.

A spacious apartment in a great location

The apartment was lovely and a lot bigger than we expected. It's walkable from shops and bars from state and David was very helpful through our stay.

Excellent apartment, a short walk away from State Street, restaurants, cafes, shops!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice second floor open-floor-plan unit with a feel of calm and of simple, not overpowering, elegance! Very nicely appointed, with thoughtful touches, both design-wise and convenience-wise. Very clean, too! The unit is a 10 or 15 minute easy walk to the State Street area with many shops, restaurants, cafes. Parking is great. A very nice place to hang out, too - calming greenery outside the windows. Check-in and out was very nice and very responsive! We were there just for a short weekend trip, Friday afternoon to Monday morning - wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you to Gonzalo and to David, the owner, whom we never actually met in person!

Never gets old!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed at the Penthouse, and we were as delighted this time as the last. The owner and manager are attentive, and the Penthouse is immaculate. It easily accommodated my husband and myself, along with our 20 year old son (our daughter and her fiancé stayed in a studio on the same property, which was also nice). We entertained some friends and family who were in Santa Barbara that weekend and the expansive deck allowed us to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful view. All in all, great value and can't wait to return!
