“Luxury getaway in comfortable home”

Reviewed 13 Jan 2014

We had a wonderful second stay here. It is the only holiday rental we have ever revisited, and will certainly return. It may not be the cheapest option, but still good value bearing in mind the high spec fittings, we'll kept garden and great location. Wendy has always been extremely efficient, and friendly. Santa Barbara itself is a great location, good shops and some great national parks and lakes a short drive away. Although we are just a couple, families would have loads of living space, in the huge living room. This is a true home from home and would thoroughly recommend a stay here. Jason and Ros ( U.K.)

“Santa Barbara 4 month Getaway”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2014

My family and I stayed in Secret Garden Hideaway for four months and we loved it. Wendy, the landlady, was always available and helpful. It is close to everything downtown: shopping, dining, exploring; as well as close to the beach. We loved our experience here. We also had visitors (special permission from owner) for the holidays and one thing we really appreciated was that all bedrooms were very secluded from the main living space. All of the bedrooms have their own bathrooms and even with a full house we didn't feel like we were on top of each other. We would definitely recommend planning your stay here!

“Great family get together.”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2013

Our adult children, and grandchild, live in distant cities. We all gathered at the Secret Garden for a week and had a wonderful time. The house was large enough, and everyone had their own area, and bathroom. We loved the Oak Park three blocks away for our five year old. Everything else was convenient for nice walks. We hope to come back again.

“Private, charming a bit of old word with modern conveniences.”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2013

Wendy was extremely helpful and accommodating. My son Eric shares those sentiments. The cleaning crew who awaited my arrival were helpful too and took time to let me try my hand at the lock-box to retrieve the keys. My one comment, which does not reflect our general pleasure and enjoyment of the hideaway is to suggest that 2 ply toilet paper be used! Cheaper in the long run because one needs fewer squares and much easier to handle. Sorry, my Mother taught me never to skimp on either toilet paper or food. I've lived 82 happy years following that important recommendation!Sounds silly, but it is important to many too embarrassed to admit it! Suzanne Lafond

“This house was perfect!!!”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2013

There were 9 of us that rented this house for a birthday getaway celebration. The house was spacious and we did not feel crammed (i.e. you could not tell there were 9 of us staying there). The house is conveniently is close to upper State Street and is a short cab ride from lower State and the beach. Wendy (the owner) was great! It was a really easy process to rent from her and she returned our deposit really quickly after our stay. I highly recommend staying at this house and when I go back to Santa Barbara, I will definitely rent from Wendy again!

“A peacefully retreat”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2013

Time spent at this peacefully property is well worth a few days. The floor plan is very useable and sitting on the patio was delightfully. The property is very well located and very well equipped We will surely return Craig and Denise Riverside, Ca

“Walk to Remember”

Reviewed 2 May 2013

Thank you, Wendy for sharing your beautiful home with us. It is everything you and the website promised and more. All in all, it was really a great vacation spending our time with our family in celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary. Liked the location close to everthing we needed. The front and backyard is beautiful and relaxing. We will surely return for more anniveries!! Thank you.

“A true home from home”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2013

My family had a brilliant stay. The house is very well maintained. Our privacy was respected. The location well suited us close to down town, and local amenities. I liked the fact that @ bedroom had a bathroom hence no queuing. The highlight was being able to have a BBQ . Lovely lemon tree in the garden too.

We had a wonderful time staying at the Secret Garden Hideaway. The house and grounds are beautiful and in excellent condition. All amenities are covered and Wendy was very attentive to the couple of questions/requests that we had. I would come back in a heartbeat and would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to stay near downtown Santa Barbara.

“Great property!”

Reviewed 21 Nov 2012

We had a great time at the secret garden hideaway. It is a perfect location in Santa Barbara, was close to everything, yet allowed you to get away with some quiet and privacy. Both the house and the gardens were immaculate. The house is quiet large with 3 bed rooms and bathrooms and has great furnishings. Wendy was great to work with. She was timely with all communications and requests. If you are looking for a place, stay here although I would be willing to bet her other properties are just as good.
