5/5 Excellent

Peaceful family sanctuary
Rick and Lynne's home was the perfect retreat for our 4 generation family. The kitchen is well stocked for every conceivable need, and the hosts went above and beyond to accommodate both great gramma and baby. The spaces are all welcoming and comfortable. Our host Lynne stopped by to introduce herself and we enjoyed meeting her. We seldom saw them during our stay although they live on the property, but they were easy to contact for questions. Just so relaxing for all of us.

5/5 Excellent

5 Star Place & 5 Star Hosts
This is one of those times that you almost don't want to leave a review because you want to keep this perfect spot for your own future bookings... But Rick & Lynne were the best hosts with an ideal home for visiting UCSB & the Goleta / Santa Barbara Area - they deserve the recognition. What else can I say - the home was super clean, stocked with everything we needed (we discovered a new family favorite board game and were even treated to some delicious fruit Lynne harvested from the garden) and the neighborhood was quiet - but full of friendly people we met while walking our dogs. This is the spot! Thanks Rick & Lynne for hosting us. We will be back.

5/5 Excellent

AMAZING stay!!
This house was perfect. Beautifully appointed, PERFECTLY situated close to everything..the beach, the mountains, and downtown restaurants and life! The owners could not have been more generous with making sure everything was perfect...from sharing their home to helping us when we needed suggestions. I sure hope life lets up come back to Santa Barbara soon--would stay here in a heartbeat.

Wonderful family vacation
Rick and Lynne are amazing hosts! We absolutely loved our time in their immaculate, comfortable home. They were very helpful with anything we needed during our stay and allowed us our privacy too. Their home was the perfect backdrop to a much needed time with our adult children. We loved the living space and the kitchen is well stocked with everything we needed during our stay. We will definitely be back again!

4/5 Good

Family getaway
It was a nice, quiet home. It was about a 10-15 easy drive to Santa Barbara wharf. The home is well stocked and very comfortable. The owners were very helpful and communicative. The owners are on the property in a cottage in the backyard. We had a wonderful and relaxing stay.
