“Wonderful home from home”
We have just returned from having spent 10 days staying in this wonderful place.The location was great,a little over a block away from State Street and yet it was a peaceful haven. The accommodation was first class,everything you wanted has been provided and more, you don't expect milk ,butter, cookies, fruit ,to be waiting for you when you arrive! but there they were. Our hosts Caron & Doug were very friendly and helpful,recommending restaurants,trips to take, what was on and things to do around town, their knowledge about Santa Barbara was limitless. We particularly loved the courtyard area which was so peaceful where we were able to read our books and have a beer or a glass of wine while listening to the lovely chimes and enjoy the beautiful weather. We have returned home very rested and content and have no hesitation in recommending this rental unit to anyone.
“My fab weekend at Casistas de Colores”
Caron and Doug have combined their talents - he is an architect and she is a fashion designer - to create a marvelous, colorful, unique, inviting home. I can't imagine wanting to stay in a hotel when you can walk two blocks off State Street and be in this comfy, beautiful space. One of the things I liked the most about this rental was that you have a private indoor one bed / one bath but you also have access to a lovely outdoor courtyard. I left the double doors open most of the time so that I could look out at the succulents, wind chimes, flowers, etc. Caron and Doug were extremely attentive and helpful when I needed anything while at the same time giving me all the privacy I could ask for. I would highly recommend this rental.
Absolutely awesome...These are the best words to describe my stay with Caron, Doug and Bootsie. I stayed at both of their units for a total of one month. Both units are absolutely great. The attention to detail, the cleanliness, the helpfulness of Doug and Caron were very impressive. Everything looks like the pictures which is mostly not the case by my experience. The location is great. Close to State Street, shopping, restaurants etc There is a shuttle bus only two blocks away. I did not have a car most of the time but you really do not need one. Most of the time I would use one of their bikes. I had such a great time that I already booked my next stay with them. No need to say anymore ...
This was our third year staying here for the Solstice weekend and it couldn't have been better. Caron has updated the unit with some new carpeting and it was clean as a whistle. We stayed in the middle unit and having access to the courtyard is just great for sitting outdoors and enjoying the weather. Starbucks is only 3 blocks away and Main street one block away. The beach is a 15 minute leisurely walk. As in the past Caron and Doug couldn't have been more gracious or helpful.
“Relaxing, colorful, conveniently located, and memorable Santa Ba”
This was our second February two week stay in Santa Barbara at Casa des Colores, and we are already day dreaming about a return trip next year. Caron and Doug have created a wonderful escape from everyday life in their colorful, comfortable, inviting cottage. We enjoyed staying in the cozy home environment or sitting on the calming patio, as much as we loved the short walk down State St. for restaurants, theater, wine tasting, museums, farmers markets, and people watching or on to the Santa Barbara Pier and beach. We also like the central location for excursions to whale watching cruises, the Channel Islands, California Mission churches, wineries, gardens, and mountain hikes. Thank you to Caron and Doug for their warm hospitality and help in creating life long California memories.
“Romantic anniversary Getaway”
My husband and I went to Santa Barbara for our 10th anniversary and we had an amazing getaway thanks to Doug and Caron and their beautiful cottage. When we arrived there was an anniversary card, cookies, and fresh fruit to welcome us. They helped us to find the right restaurant for our anniversary dinner and pointed us in the right direction for all our other acitivities and dinners. We loved being able to leave the french doors open and look out onto the beautfiul patio. We would highly recommend this property.
“Casitas des Colores = love!”
Paul and Caron are amazing hosts! They're property is truly an extension of their wonderful personalities and kind hearts. The property is absolutely wonderful and full of charming and unique qualities. The location is great because it is close enough to State Street, but yet a few blocks away so there isn't quite as much hustle and bustle. If you are looking for a place to stay that has amazing character, has hosts that will make sure you have what you need, and a great location, this is your place! We definitely left a little piece of our hearts at Casita des Colores and will be back again soon! Thanks for everything Doug and Caron.
I stayed there for one week the owners were very gracious. I was provided everything I needed plus more. The facility was clean and very nicely decorated. It was within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. I cooked when I didn't feel like going out and everything I needed was in the kitchen except the food but the grocery store is very close. Santa Barbara also provides a bus to get you to places not within walking distance. I went to unwind and went home very relaxed. You can sit comfortably outside in the garden and either sleep or read or just relax. It is at the back of the property so there wasn't much street noise and it had lots of shade. The price is very reasonable and I will stay there again when in Santa Barbara.
