Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at our Santa Barbara getaway, a special weekend to celebrate our anniversary. The accommodations were cozy and comfortable and we both slept wonderfully in their bed...better than at home! We would stay there again for sure!

Nice people, but odd lock, few amenities

  • 3 of 5

You can't lock the door from the outside, only the patio gate through a passcode. Entry is from the patio through a glass door into the bedroom. The other side of that is a small hall area. There is a nice bathroom, and the sitting room is okay. The kitchenette has few implements. I wish everything fabric had been shampooed or washed to remove the THOMAS FIRE smoke and ash residue away. It was usually in the air outside in the hillside of Santa Barbara.

A cute get way for our anniversary weekend

  • 5 of 5

This “in-law” suite was a perfect location for us as we explored beautiful Santa Barbara. It’s quaint, quiet and secluded with all the amenities one would need. Thank you Harry & Judi for your hospitality and being flexible with our check-in and check-out times. We hope to return soon.

Wonderful, quiet, relaxing apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Harry and Judi's apartment was perfect for us. Great location both for the beach & town, and Westmont College where our son was playing in a basketball tournament. Quiet, enjoyable garden to read and relax in. They provided lots of amenities for us - even Milano cookies to enjoy after a long day. YUM! I'll come back next time our travels bring us to Santa Barbara.

Thank you Harry and Judi!
