Very convenient and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We found the front cottage very comfortable and convenient to all the services. 1 block from the beach. A short drive to grocery stores, wine tasting and excellent restaurants. The walking factor is excellent. You can walk forever on the beachfront walking trail. You can't beat the weather in Santa Barbara even tho on 1 day there was unusually high winds. I think that the bathroom could use some updating. Other then that it was quite nice.

Very comfortable and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The front cottage was exactly as advertised. It was a short walk to the beach, Sunday art fair, and a great grocery shop. The cottage was very quiet and we never heard anything on the other side of the duplex. We also had a small front yard for our dog to run outside. David and Wendy are very accommodating.

Better than described

  • 5 of 5

Everything in the rental was clean and just as pictured. We had questions about the TV operations and the owners got back to us promptly and were very courteous and helpful. It is so close to a wonderful beach . Never had a problem parking. Would definitely book again.

Our weather was lousy or we could have walked to the pier or hopped on the trolley.

The perfect beach cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property is immaculately maintained and managed. The property manager and owner saw to it that all of our needs were met. The decor and location make the cottages a convenient and quaint beach hideaway. Close to all activities we especially enjoyed the volleyball across the street, access to surf and downtown shopping.

We will definitely consider returning in the near future.

Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back (to cold Chicago) after a week in paradise. The cottage was perfect for our needs...two little ones (age 4 and 1) to keep happy. The cottage and grounds are beautiful, beds and furniture comfortable, kitchen equipped with everything we needed to cook some meals. The location could not have been better...blocks to the beach, zoo, great kid parks, produce (and other essentials) market, inexpensive lunch place (batting cages on Milpas had a great variety of tacos, ceviche, and unusual items like a rice ball with tuna inside. Hot dogs, burgers, and quesadillas for the kids. Three tacos for $9). The cafe on the beach (2 blocks away- East Beach Grill) was our go-to place in the morning for coffee and/or breakfast...after a walk on the beautiful beach, of course! Yummy pancakes and I loved the Chai Tea Latte. There were bikes to use and a stroller which made the visits easier to the beach, zoo, parks, etc. We never watched TV because there was so much to do outside, but there is a big screen TV and movies if you like. We had the front cottage, and there is a nice "hang out" area in the front. Back cottage has a private, fenced in yard which was beautiful. Laundry and a grill on the side were a bonus! They truly thought of everything, even beach chairs/umbrellas, extra propane in case we ran out, plenty of towels, a styrofoam cooler, an extra cot! There was no wet ground issue when we were there as mentioned in a previous review. David came by to check on our stay and Eyal checked in many times...both very nice and responsive! It truly could not have been better. We'll be back! p.s. great Mexican food at Los Agaves...about a mile down on Milpas! Yummy McConnel's ice cream shop on State St. Trader Joe's and a Rite Aid store are less than a mile away. Great kids park next to the cafe on the beach and one about 4 blocks down the main beach road (Cabrillo?). I think that park is called Chase Palm Park...great climbing equipment and concrete giant whale sculptures to climb on as well.

Owner's Response: Wow, what fun you had last week in Santa Barbara...your family did just about everything to do in town and ate at some really great restaurants (& hole-in-the walls) too. As you know, it was a difficult week for us at the cottage and I can not tell you how much Eyal and I appreciated you assistance early on during your stay and the bike mystery (still unsolved) on your last day. It's not often that guests have the time to write such a thoughtful review...So when we receive a great note like this, it really makes our day! Thanks David
