3 couples recently rented "Poolside" to celebrate our 50th Birthdays...and we are so happy we did. We enjoyed the beautiful gardens, private yard, swimming in the pool, and cooking with the fresh herbs, lemons, limes, and oranges we found on the property. We are from Canada, and spent our days exploring and golfing around Santa Barbara - but we enjoyed coming "home" to cook and eat our meals in the quiet and privacy of the home. Wendy was very helpful in providing suggestions for golf, limousine service for wine tours, and any other info we wanted to know about Santa Barbara. We especially appreciated her professionalism from start to finish in the process - following through in a timely manner with e-mails and phone calls, and leaving us feeling that all is being taken care of. The home was perfect for 3 couples who wanted to be together, but still have our own "space". Thank you!
“A great house for a family vacation!”
We had a lovely week in this house during our recent family reunion. The home is large enough that everyone has privacy, and most of the decor and features are updated. However, it is casual enough for families with small children to feel comfortable. The best part of this house is definitely the outdoor pool area - beautiful fruit trees, a huge deck area, and a fabulous pool. The location is lovely, a short drive to town but removed in the hills. Walking distance to a great park, the Natural History Museum, and the Santa Barbara Mission. The secret perk that makes it feel luxurious is the white towels - there are tons of them in each bathroom!
“Totally Relaxing and enjoyable, what a vacation should be”
This is the second year that we have spent our vacation at 'Poolside' in Santa Barbara. As before, the only thing we needed to do was show up and bring some good books to read and our food and drink. This vacation rental home comes with everything else you might possibly need for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. The location is perfect. You fell that you are miles away from everything but in actuality you are only minutes away from downtown, the beaches, restaurants, etc. We hope to be back again next year
“I'd return in the future!”
This is a fantastic place to vacation with a family. Near the botanic garden and the historic Santa Barbara Mission, it offers plenty of space, nice large bedrooms, an outdoor grill, pool and spa. To top it off there are a variety of citrus trees that the owner lets you take fruit from. You can't beat fresh oranges right off the tree!
“A great location in a wonderful destination”
All of our party enjoyed our 5 day stay. While the guys went sport fishing(with Tony from Santa Barbara Sportfishing, a real pro),the ladies went to Lotusland(a beautiful gardenspot). We brought enough fish(18) home for two meals and took advantage of a well stocked kitchen and grill. We went hiking in the Santa Ynez mountains just above the rental and enjoyed a view from 2700 feet or so. A limo picked us up and brought us to 4 vineyards. We enjoyed several fantastic meals, local Mexican fare,El Sitio(taqueria),Los agaves(with fabulous sauces) and Brophy's, a local seafood place with clam chowder that was as good as I've had anywhere. We went to the "Choir Mass"(0900, Sunday) at the Mission of Santa Barbara and the music was inspiring. I recommend this to any visitor to SB. We made good use of the pool, spa and poolside furniture. A bonus was the fruit(oranges, lemons and limes) on the tiered orchard that surrounds the pool area. I can't imagine a better place to spend time while visiting Santa Barbara. We will be contacting Wendy to make arrangements to stay when our daughter gets married in SB next fall.
“The most comfortable and relaxing vacation that I can remember”
This house and property were fantastic. The house was large and spacious and had just about anything that you would need for a comfortable stay. The back yard and pool area were the best and we spent most of the time outside enjoying the great weather. The location felt like a retreat miles from anything buts was only minutes from everything in Santa Barbara. We definitely will want to come back for future vacations
“Enjoyable stay in pleasant surroundings close to everything.”
We had a very enjoyable stay at the property. The location was excellent and accessible to everything. We mentioned to Wendy that one of the showers was not working properly and that the bathroom shared by two bedrooms at the end of the hall could use something on the window because it got very cold in there at night.
“Loved loved this house”
We loved loved this house!. It is absolutely beautiful. There are windows and french doors from every room that open to the outside. There are beautiful gardens that surround the house. There is plenty of patio furniture for you to enjoy the views and don't forget the spa. The rooms are spacious and the master bedroom is breathtaking. The kitchen is well equipped with 2 dining rooms. The location by the Santa Barbara Mission was ideal. Close to the downtown and wharf. We would definitely stay there again.
“Fantastic Place / Great Value”
The house is a wonderful example of architectural excellence using modest materials. Wherever there is a view of the gardens, pool, mountains, trees, distant ocean or sky there seems to be a strategically placed window. Inside is a wonderful collection of very functional rooms with space for adults and kids. Lots of stuff to keep everyone occupied. Outside there's the pool and large patio surrounded by gardens and trees. There is an abundant amount of quality pool furniture and tables and chairs for dining or reading. We also appreciated the high quality bbq. The large gardens continue around the home, including wonderful, wild gardens with fruit trees, flowers and vegetables. There's always a place in the sun and a place in the shade. The preparation of the home for our visit was great. The result is a wonderful place for a restful vacation, an inside or outside dinner for 10 or just several families sharing a wonderful time. It would also make a great working retreat, close to the Mission and the Botanic Gardens. I have also recommended it to several friends who were planning to spend a few days exploring the Santa Ynez Valley wineries and views. The drive is easy and there is something appealingly civilized about dinner or even morning coffee in Santa Barbara. It's also around 12 miles to the legendary Cold Springs Tavern for lunch or dinner. Steve D., Santa Ynez Valley, Ca
“The house and pool so exceeded our expectations.”
We stayed with our family of adults and 2 small grandchildren to visit extended family in Santa Barbara. The house is spacious and the patio area with the pool and spa were great. Very nice landscaping - even enjoyed veggies from the garden. We are planning to stay there everytime we visit SB as a family!
