Loved it! We will be back

5/5 Excellent

Great place to stay in Santa Barbara!
We had a great experience staying in this property. The unit was nicely decorated, and a very comfortable stay. First class sheets, towels, etc. The rooftop was an added treat and a great place to watch sunsets. The location is fantastic, just down the street from the beach as well as downtown. Sandy, our host, was very available and accommodating. We were guests during the stay at home orders due to Covid-19, and Sandy went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and offered advice and guidance during the time. We look forward to coming back to more thoroughly enjoying the pleasures of Santa Barbara when this is all behind us!

5/5 Excellent

Great stay in Santa Barbara
Very nice and comfy spot. Clean and convenient to downtown.

2/5 Poor

Badly in need of upgrades
Shower and bathroom had mildew and ants - window needs replacement and has no heat. Unit absorbs a lot of noise from street and neighboring units and has little to no heat. Couch was stained as well as bed sheets - pillows were also old. owner did not send property email till after we arrived and had questions. street parking was also a hassle. only good thing was the location.

5/5 Excellent

Clean, comfortable, wonderful location
Clean, comfortable, quiet, and carefully maintained this triplex is in an ideal location- easy stroll to the waterfront, marina and State Street. The rooftop garden was a lovely place to relax with our Santa Barbara relatives and the other guests. Never noticed noise from the rooftop. Sandy was easy to contact, attentive to our needs and very informative about his garden. This will be our default place to stay when visiting Santa Barbara!
