JB (Belmont, MA, USA) I wrote a long review of our wonderful stay back in the fall, but it somehow didn't go through, so at long last, I'm trying again. We came from Boston to help our son settle in to graduate school at UCSB, so we wanted a central location in walking distance from the shop and the beach. We couldn’t possibly have chosen a more wonderful place. The apartment is spacious with plenty of shelf and closet space. The kitchen has everything that you need. The patio in the back is beautiful for relaxing and having a fine glass of Santa Barbara wine. State Street, with all its shops, restaurants and bakeries, is just a block away. We loved every minute and hope to come back in 2013 (alas, not this year). Make sure to take Inga’s recommendations for activities. We capped off our stay in Santa Barbara with a concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl. Amazing!
Adriana E. This was our first time visiting Santa Barbara and it was amazing!! I have family that comes to visit from out of the States for the holidays and every year we try to do something different. We absolutely loved this place. The location is perfect, just a block from State Street and a couple of blocks from the Ocean. The place was super clean, cozy and very "chic".

We arrived Friday evening and Laura had the electric heater on for us. It was perfect. The bed is also super comfy!!! The next morning we made breakfast (the unit is fully equipped with pots and pans, plates, even wine glasses and some condiments) and then went out for a bike ride (also included). We had a blast! My sister picked a three wheeler and even my dad went out with us. There is also a supermarket at a walking distance and a Trader Joe's too. The location is so convenient. We biked all over the place, to the beach, State Street and the Courthouse building! What a day! For New Years Eve we made our own dinner at "home".

We also recommend going to Goleta Beach (about 15min car drive) its a fun dog friendly beach with a great restaurant.

We absolutely recommend this place and we hoping to go back soon! I cant imagine how fun Santa Barbara can be during the summer!! Thank you so much Inga and Laura !!
Vicki A. My daughter and I stayed in this adorable apartment for three weeks while we were in Santa Barbara for her jaw surgery. It was every bit as inviting as it looked on the web site, but the apartment had real substance as well. The king-sized bed was very comfortable and the shower worked great. My daughter especially appreciated how the velvet curtains were able to close out all the light for sleeping. The management does everything possible to make guests happy so you really can't go wrong with this choice. An extra plus is that it provides excellent value.
Wanda York (Ramer, Tennessee) The photos do not do this property justice. This is a wonderfully decorated condo and soooooo spacious. Our girls getaway could not have been better. The view is fantastic and the condo is convenient to casinos. We walked next door most of the time to the casino. Sherman is a great owner to deal with and we had absolutely no problems. Can't wait to come back to this condo.
