Santa Barbara County Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6 adults & 1 child

This recently renovated 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home is designed for a quiet, relaxing vacation in beautiful Santa Barbara. The large yard is great for barbecuing and catching some fun in the sun.

The home boasts a variety of entertaining options including; your very own back yard Olympic sized Sand Volley ball/badminton court, private outdoor hot tub, multiple patio dining areas, ping pong table, media room, separate BBQ prep kitchen and much more.

Convenient central location: Centrally located in a quiet neighborhood, a roughly 5-10 minute drive to both Santa Barbara and Goleta beaches and downtown State Street. Near multiple golf courses, mountain and beach hiking, restaurants and shopping. Accessible to major bicycling and jogging routes. The location is just out of the typical coastal fog-line which makes for great outdoor fun and better weather than most of the SB area.

We are are family friendly rental. Since this house is located in a quiet neighborhood it is not a vacation rental for those looking for a 'party' house. We are also not permitted to host wedding showers, family reunions, weddings, etc.

Nicole was a pleasure to work with. This home is so wonderful, we will absolutely go back. At almost the end of a dead end street, it is very quiet and tranquil. The best part is it's minutes from all the best Santa Barbara has to offer. The back of the property is extremely large with a variety of settings to enjoy. Thoroughly enjoyed our mornings and evenings out back. The game room is really wonderful and beautiful. All the bedrooms are comfortable and the very private outdoor shower off the master is divine. This place is special!

Location très sympathique

  • 4 of 5

Séjour très sympa à Santa Barbara, dans cette location aux portes de la ville. La maison est très grande, nous étions 8 et cela convenait parfaitement. La literie est très confortable, les salles de bains très propres. Equipements de loisirs très appréciables : billard, babyfoot, télévision dans une annexe, jaccusi dans la cour, terrain de volley. L'entretien général pourrait être amélioré, certains équipements sont abîmés, mais cela ne nous a pas empêché d'en profiter. Un peu de retard pour récupérer la caution, mais tout est rentré dans l'ordre après un échange de mails. En résumé un très bon pied à terre pour profiter de Santa Barbara.

Perfect family getaway house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay, 12 family and friends with kids, ages 12 to 84. This house had something for everybody. The property is very big, so you always found a nice spot to be for yourself. The kids played on the sand field or in the games room. Kitchen was fully equipped, with kitchen aid, cuisinart, pots, pans, bowls, everything we needed ( the girls baked a wedding cake and had great fun with it ). We will be back !

Nice House but nothing works here :(

  • 2 of 5

We stayed here with two family in end of May. We chose this house mainly due to long list of activities available like hot tube, pool table and etc.

When we arrived to house everything looked to be in orderd in first sight but quite fast we noted that pool table was broken so it was useless, also you couldn't control hot tube temperature at all and because water was way way too warm so hot tube was useless too. Unfortunately this is just beginning, here comes more: we got gas alarm in house two times during our stay (this was really scary) and finally I was able to locate master gas valve for heater so I was able to turn it of and after that gas alarms went way. Also our dishwasher didn't work at all so we had to wash our dishes by hand all time what we stayed at house!!! Then BBQ Grill was not cleaned from previous customer, that was really nasty to use.

We asked refund from owner because dishwasher didn't work but she declined and told that one of our group member peed to one bed where anybody of us even slept, that's crazy I must say.

I am feeling betrayed with this rental but I hope that this review helps other who are considering to rent this house.

Good lodging

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we had a nice time staying here. There were certainly a lot of activities to keep us entertained at the house. As others have reported the various outdoor/indoor entertainment stuff could use some serious updating. The pool table was uneven, the balls were mostly flat, things were just falling apart. The house had enough beds and bathrooms for our group. The kitchen was stocked with just about everything we needed to make our meals each night. It worked for us.

A few negatives, there was dog (animal) hair all over the house. I'd say the common areas could use a better cleaning between stays, we saw cobwebs inside the house even. The dishwasher didn't work during our stay. The bathtub in the master bath wouldn't stop running water so a plumber was sent over to look into it. The manager was very responsive in getting someone out to fix the water issue (thank you!). The gardner didn't put out the trash cans for the weekly pickup as we were told he would so by the time we left the garbage was overflowing outside. Outside of the dog hair and general cleanliness of the house these are all minor things, however, when you're on vacation you don't want to get stuck hand washing every dish you use!

Perfect House of a Laid Back Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house is great, exactly as listed. The highlight is definitely the outside area which is huge and well-appointed. There's also a basketball hoop in the driveway that we made good use of. Perfect place to go with kids or a group of friends who like to be outside and/or play sports.
