Lucille E. We found this bungalow to be the perfect place to come back to each night after spending time in Santa Barbara and the surrounding area. We relaxed in the redwood hot tub morning and night, it was always hot, and the jets were strong and rejuvenating. It was set conveniently just steps from the entrance to the home and was on the edge of the patio surrounded by foliage and completely private. The cottage was compact and fully contained, we were lacking nothing. There was a coffee pot for my husband, an electric pot for my tea, and starter amounts of both coffee and tea. When we arrived by train the car rental agencies were closed so we hired an Uber and arrived with a plan to have cheese and salami for dinner the first night. We were met by the owners, Diane and Steve, and invited to share their dinner with them, that in addition to the fact they had already left a little surprise snack of fruit, cheese, crackers, and Martinelli’s in the refrigerator. We could not have asked for a better welcome. We stayed for 4 nights and had a completely restful stay. The large (king size I’m sure) bed was so comfy and the pillows and linens were luxurious. It rained off and, on all week, but we were warm and dry and the sound of the rain on the rooftop was beautiful to fall asleep to. One stormy night there were warnings of possible power outages and Steve called then came by with extra blankets and a lantern “just in case”. We can’t wait to revisit this little piece of Paradise!
