5/5 Excellent

Cute House
Small, but very cute house. Walking distance to downtown! Enjoyed out stay very much!

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful Escape
Great location and perfect size cottage for a family! We enjoyed the backyard as well as short walks to State Street. Definitely would stay here again!

2/5 Poor

Bed bugs?
My husband and I stayed here with another couple, we noticed bathroom tub was not clean, it's super small and doesn't drain well. Also, my friend sent me the picture today of her husband bites on his chest from the bed in the back room.

4/5 Good

Santa Barbara 2020
The house was adorable overall. The bathtub really should be replaced as it is a hazard for someone older trying to get out. I almost fell a couple of times. The kitchen does not have a fan for the oven and the window doesn't open so when cooking the smoke detector easily goes off. A little annoying.

5/5 Excellent

Small but clean, great location
We booked a last-minute stay in this cottage. Everything was very clean. Towels were still running in the dryer when we arrived, about 20 minutes after check-in time. The kitchen is very small and is stocked with the bare essentials. Wine glasses are plastic. The policy of only 2 rolls of toilet paper is very annoying. Granted, there is shopping close by, but it was annoying. Be aware that almost all electrical devices (lamps, etc.) are unplugged until renter plugs them in. There are no streaming options on the tv. The tv controllers don't work well and there are no instructions on how to use them. We streamed on a computer. There is a portable air conditioning unit in one bedroom. It was very hot the day we arrived. The a/c plus multiple fans did cool the house in a short time. Because the windows are open quite often, noise from the neighboring houses carries. This happens when the windows in this house are closed but the windows in the neighbors' houses are open. Beds are comfortable. The house is located within walking distance of many things downtown and on State Street. But, the street is busy. Rush hour traffic begins before 7:00 a.m. There was a little traffic noise. But, it wasn't too noisy. It was nice to have parking behind the house. There was parking on the street, too.
