Very Good

“Lovely home with gorgeous views”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2010

We stayed here for about ten days and had a great stay. The house is very well appointed, a wonderful kitchen. The deck is a bit small but it is offset by the hot tub at the base of the house, which we really enjoyed. I highly recommend this property!

“Riviera Retreat”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2010

We truly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home! Spectacular views. Wonderful furnishings. Great location up above the busy downtown but close enough to enjoy all it has to offer. We highly recommend this vacation and rental and will definitely return.

“I give it my highest recommendation.”

Reviewed 20 May 2010

Riviera Retreat was a gorgeous home! We stayed over the holidays and it couldn't have been more fun. The place was ready on time, everything was spotless, the view was fabulous, location great. I would definitely give it my highest recommendation and I hope to stay at the vacation home again.

“Great view, great house equals great time in Santa Barbara!”

Reviewed 13 May 2010

We arrived tired, but eagerly looking forward to a month in Santa Barbara. Upon entering the home, we were delighted that the house exceeded our expectations and looked even better than the on-line pictures! The kitchen and family room area are perfect for entertaining. We loved the master bedroom on the main floor, while guests had privacy and their own tv room downstairs. We took advantage of the grill and balconies for bbq's and afternoon wine and tapas. Being only 10 minutes from the beach and town was perfect. We loved watching the sunsets from the balcony and kitchen. Midway into our stay, we contacted Paradise Retreats to book our month long stay for 2011!! Loved every minute of our time in Santa Barbara!

“Wonderful Stay at Riviera Retreat”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2009

We met my inlaws in Santa Barbara over labor day weekend and had a wonderful stay at Riviera Retreat. Everybody I dealt with at Paradise Retreats was friendly, helpful and professional. We had no problems checking in/out or receiving our deposit back. The house was very clean, tastefully furnished, all the bedrooms were very spacious, kitchen was great and stocked with everything you'd need. We had children with us so it was very nice to have extra space for them to run around. They even had a pack n play and highchair available so we didn't need to bring ours. We cooked every meal at home which made it more relaxing for everybody. It was nice to grill outside too. The views from the house and patio were spectacular. The garden and jacuzzi areas were great places to relax. The location was perfect. It was a very short drive to beaches, downtown area, restaurants and shops, but it was very peaceful and quiet up in the hills. The closest grocery store we found was Trader Joe's just 5 minutes down the hill. We all had such a great time that we didn't want to leave! We would love to return someday soon.

“Enjoyed the view, the home, and the amenities”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2009

Although our group had some trouble getting our reservation honored, once we settled everything and got to the house we all felt that the work was worthwhile. The home was well maintained and even better looking in person than in the photos. The amenities abounded and the location on the hill afforded us an incredible view from which to observe the 4th of July Fireworks at the SB harbor. I would recommend the experience, the home, and the property management. One criticism, other than the initial troubles getting our reservation honored, was the delay in receiving our security deposit. It took over 3 weeks, rather than the 1 week or so that we expected and which was outlined as standard procedure in our previous email communications.

“One terrific vacation experience.”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2009

We rented this lovely home after a conference in San Diego and loved every minute of our stay. The folks at Paradise Retreats couldn't have been nicer. While there, there were a few concerns that were addressed immediately to our great satisfaction. The house/grounds were decorated/landscaped and kept up beautifully. We four couples loved the large circular dining table with a view of Santa Barbara and the Pacific. I wish the weather had been warmer so we could've enjoyed the long front deck more. I'd be happy to stay here again. Highlights were a visit to Lotusland (Montecito estate garden), Solvang and coffee on the patio next to the ocean at the Biltmore Hotel. I'd love to stay here again.

“Fantastic Accomodations!”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2009

The combination of first class amenities and an incredible view make this stay one of the best we have ever had! On top of it all, SB is a wonderful town, with whale watching tours tours that rival Hawaii. We look forward to revisiting again someday, hopefully soon Aloha, Pete & Pam

First let me say the management company was truly amazing. They went beyond helpful. So thank you to all who made our time in Santa Barbara wonderful. The house is everything you see online and more. You cannot go wrong staying here. It is first rate all the way. The views are wonderful as well. I highly recomend this home I know I will stay here again if I ever get back to Santa Barbara. I have stayed in many places in Santa Barbara over the years and though all were great this home was without a doubt the best of them all. Thank you for the memories Lori Love

“Absolutely wonderful”

Reviewed 27 May 2009

We came to Santa Barbara for a wedding and rented the house for a long weekend. Three couples plus one (12-year-old) child shared the place and it was perfect. The view is beyond belief. The house is beautifully appointed. It felt like home for three days and we were very sorry to say goodbye.
