Exceptional Home in a perfect location
My family and I spent a week in this beautiful home. We chose this home based on the Santa Barbara architecture and its proximity to the beach, shopping, and restaurants. Our stay was in July 2018 during an unusual California heatwave and the home stayed wonderfully cooled and comfortable. This home is even more beautiful than the pictures. There is an amazing garden with orange and lemon trees, lavender, and beautiful succulents. We spent almost every evening outside playing on the large bocce ball court which was a lot of fun. There is a lovely fountain and outdoor fireplace with cozy seating in the front courtyard and a large grill and dining table on the back patio for eating alfresco. The bedrooms are spacious and well-appointed with fresh (new) linens. The bathrooms are also spacious and stocked with amenities. We were even provided with bathrobes! The kitchen was very large and well appointed with everything we needed: utensils, pots, pans, glassware, etc. All of the appliances were spotless and looked new. The large screen television and big, comfortable sectional were perfect for relaxing at the end of the day. There is a large, stocked laundry area with a full size washer and dryer. We also appreciated the two car attached garage for parking our car. Superfast WiFi. We loved being able to walk to the beach every morning. We were also able to walk to the Biltmore Hotel and the Lower Village shopping area. The Montecito Upper Village is a short 3 minute drive. Overall, this is really an exceptional home which definitely exceeded our expectations. We hope to return again soon!
This place had everything we needed plus more. The place was clean and had all the amenities that a house would have. I would definitely stay here again. The location was excellent too. Walking distance to Coast Village Dr where there are multiple restaurants and stores.
House was great, rental agency not great
Overall, the house is great. Has a lovely hacienda/north african vibe, with a slight 70s feel in the decor. Beds and linens are so cozy. House is clean and orderly, and is well equipped for staying with children. Beautiful orange trees for fresh juice, lavender in the garden, fireplace and fountain in the courtyard outside. really charming. Conveniently located, just a few minutes walk to the lower village, and maybe 10 min walk to the beach. TO NOTE: biggest issue is dealing with the inefficient, difficult rental agency. They made a lot of administrative mistakes along the way (for instance sending wrong amount on invoice multiple times), and are not sufficiently attentive for the price in my opinion. They have A LOT of rules that feel more like threats and require a huge security deposit ($2000 for 5 night stay). They also charge a HUGE admin fee ($450 if I recall) for what I'm not sure because the quality of service is unfortunately not there. Re: house, the 2 downstairs bedrooms are small, one REALLY small, so best for a child. there is no sidewalk for walking to town, a block or two in the bike lane on the main road. Not ideal but we did it with kids/stroller in tow and it was fine. While not intolerable, there is freeway noise when outside. The tv is exceptionally difficult to use.
Thanks for your review, and we do apologize for an administrative mistakes we made. We always try our best to make things smooth and easy for our guests booking with us, and so we hope you will try us again sometime soon so we can prove that we are easy and efficient to work with. We are also working on improving our security deposit system and fee system to better accommodate our guests. Thanks again for staying with us and for your review, we truly appreciate it!
