What Past Guests Are Saying
A wonderful stay again, again, and again
this is our 3 time renting and we were very satisfied with the rental and the ability to bring our dogs with us. Most likely will be returning next May...
Charming and great for pets
My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Petit Chateau during our month's stay in September. It is truly a treasure and was great for
our two small dogs.
Thanks for a wonderful vacation home. Look forward to our next stay.

Le Petite Chateau
Le Petite is an awesome place to stay. Close to beach, and minutes away from down town Santa Barbara. My 2 dogs totally enjoyed the house and back yard. The house was small but offered up just enough space for a small family. The property management company was great to work with and ensured we were happy with our stay. Would recommend this house to all dog lovers. Very clean throughout.
Loved the off leash dog beach, stones throw away!

Wonderful home in a perfect location
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay and the 'first class' details of the home. We were equally happy with the way the rental company handled our stay and the refund of deposits. All were top notch. Our only concern with this home is the mildewy smell from the MBR area. Never figured out why this was the case but am afraid it is part of this home. We will stay with this rental company again but not this home.

Vacation in SB
Overall, a great place. Fantastic kitchen. Plenty of room - close to beach.
My family had a great time at Le Petite Chateau! Some of the highlights were the location, the fully-stocked amenities and the great mountain views from the patio. Not having visited Santa Barbara before, we were quite impressed with how easy and quick it was to get around. We enjoyed the easy 5 minute walk to the beach daily, as well as being so close to the Boat House Restaurant. It was also a quick 10 minute drive to downtown and just minutes away to restaurants, grocery stores and much more. It was also so nice not having to stock up on the kitchen/bathroom/laundry essentials during our week stay. We also used University Sitters, which was recommended through the rental company and had a great experience! We thoroughly enjoyed our morning coffee/afternoon wine and cheese on the patio looking out to the Mountains. The only downside to the rental were the outdated and uncomfortable slipcover couches and the dingy bedding and flat/overused pillows. The mattresses however, were very comfortable.

After reading this guest review we purchased brand new sofas and replaced all the bedding and pillows.
Great Family Gathering!
Our family which consisted of 2 adults,2 teenagers and 2 small children enjoyed our stay at the Chateau. The beach was a short walk, shppoing was close as well. If you enjoy cooking for your family and friends this place had it all. Everyone gathered in the kitchen throught the vacation to enjoy the great views wonderful food, drinks and laughs. The master suite made us feel at home. We would definately return for another stay. Thank you Santa Barbera Rentals for a nice place to stay away from home.
Everything we expected and more
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Le Petite Chateau. The kitchen is fabulous and the beds are out of this world! Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Might even want to bring our Black Lab next time. Back patio perfect for outdoor dining w/ great gas bbq.One of the top places we've rented for sure!
I expected more
Great location and accommodations. Management could do better job on supervising the cleaning crew.
Recommendations: Instal some shades on the east facing windows and/or get aC. During the day it gets too hot inside and with no aC it stays hot even during the night (if there is aC in the house it wasn't working). No screens on the doors/windows either - i.e. couldnt leave them open or otherwise the bugs will get in.
Overall OK vacation but wouldn't call it a "luxury vacation".
Response from Santa Barbara Luxury Rentals - 06/22/2011
Unfortunately, the unique shape of the doors does not allow for screens, though we do have screens installed on the windows. The east facing glass are all doors, not windows. We have not installed A/C because Santa Barbara's moderate climate does not usually require it. We do have occasional heat spells, and we have several standing fans available in the property. We very rarely have complaints about the cleaning crew, but on this particular occasion we had a big group check out the same morning this guest checked in, and the five hours allotted between the turnover might not have been sufficient time. Had we received a complaint when guest checked in we would have sent cleaning crew over immediately.
Great location for exploring Santa Barbara
We very much enjoyed our stay in Santa Barbara at Le Petit Chateau. It is a very convenient location, pet friendly and a very short walk to Hendry Beach...perfect! We stayed for 6 weeks and it was easy to feel 'at home'. It has a fabulous kitchen, excellent bathrooms and is a very comfortable place to relax. The patio has a beautiful view of the mountains. It is also fun to watch the paragliders in Elings Park across Las Positias Road. We arrived after a very wet December. The house smelled of mildew. The owner was quick to respond and worked hard to fix the problem. The other below average area was the back yard, however, they hired a gardener while we were there and with regular attention it was improving before we left. I would gladly return to Le Petit Chateau. Altogether it was a very comfortable stay for us.
Doggy (and Family) Dream Getaway
My extended family stayed at le petit chateau this xmas vacation, and we found the location and the home to be absolutely perfect for our needs. The large great room and kitchen open area made the ideal lounging (and cooking - with Viking appliances!) space for the whole family. The location - walking distance to Hendry's Beach (dog friendly), and Elings Park (dog heaven) made the stay even better for our family pooch. The only downside is she wanted to get up earlier and earlier every day to make sure she didn't miss a thing :) Also super convenient to Lazy acres, an excellent grocery, and the Santa Barbara City College track, which is gorgeous and open to the public.
Even dogs had fun
Wife and I celebrated 10th anniversary, and being just a block from dog beach, we brought our pooches! Everybody had a great week! Just a quick walk to the nearby dog-friendly beach. (Due to heatwave, house was a little warm upon arrival, and the a/C was slow to cool things down...but how often is a/C needed in Santa Barbara?) A great time was had by all!
We thoroughly enjoyed the beautifully appointed and equiped home! We had old and young here and it was good for all . juQuiet,convenient location.
Beautiful, Clean, and Fun!
The house felt like home immediately. It's in a nice location which is far enough out of the way to be peaceful and relaxing, yet, close enough to lots of activity which is easy to get to.
stressed out beach bums
very nice place...cool location...you won't be disappointed
Singing in the rain
Wonderful property, wonderful service
We had a wonderful stay at Le Petite Chateau. The team at Santa Barbara Luxury Rentals was extremely thoughtful in helping me select the right property and very responsive to all of my questions. The property itself was lovely - it lived up to the nice pictures on the website. Everything was in excellent condition, and all details had been considered for an ideal stay. My only suggestion is that Santa Barbara Luxury Rentals should accept the American Express card, as I have never considered paying for my vacations with any other payment vehicle.
Our dogs and my friend and I loved the house -so
comfortable for pets and humans and so close to
Hendry Dog Beach-great experience -we plan to return
sometime in the future
