From the outside, this house looks small and rather plain. However, when we opened the door we were delighted with a beautiful and cute, yet spacious (for 2 or 4) home. It's decorated beautifully. Exceptionally clean. Beds are so nice ( pillow options are great and we enjoyed the memory foam and warm comforter). Every detail seems to be thought through. I would go back without hesitation and only wish Cathy had home throughout the country so I could be assured that wherever I travel I would be this well taken care of. Thank you, Cathy!
The house is very cozy and clean. We cooked, used the games on the book shelves and were able to park our car for the long weekend we were there and walk everywhere. We took walks to the beach, to downtown for shopping and dining.
Thoughtfully decorated, with many nice touches. Jewlery cup to put rings in, trader Joe bags for taking the beach towels and mats. Fun games we played with the family. Kathy really took the time think about what makes a good "home," and that enhances the travel experience so much more. We no doubt will return. My son asked if we could move in and live there. :) Only issue we encountered were ants but that was easy enough to deal with for us.
We had a wonderful stay! The house is really accommodating, spacious, sunny and bright. It is also very clean, very well equipped, and the beds are soooo comfortable. Not to mention the location which is also excellent. Communication with Cathy was very easy and she accommodated us really well, including baby stuff. I definitely recommend this place!!!
We were in Santa Barbara and needed immediate accommodation (same day). Fortunately Sunny Creekside seemed available and Cathy accepted our booking within 20 minutes! We were relieved, but more amazingly when we stepped into the house, we just felt at home straight away. Although we didn't meet Cathy, she was incredibly helpful in getting us into the property quickly and with ease. The Cottage is a gem! The beds are super comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, the patio at the back is ideal for early morning coffee and late afternoon drinks and I'm sure is even better in the Summer. We loved all the little touches, artwork on the walls, beautiful glasses and crockery, tasteful ornaments. Plenty of information about what to do in Santa Barbara. The drawer cabinet that houses a different game in each drawer is so cute! We stayed with 3 people but feel the house could easily accommodate up to 5. Cathy even provides beach towels! We had the best of times at Sunny Creekside. The location is ideal... we walked everywhere. We definitely want to come back. Maybe next year already!
If you want to be able to walk to all of the shops and restaurants of State Street as well as the beach, then this is your place! This cheery cottage is roomy and recently fully remodeled. It has plenty of storage space in closets and dressers as well as a private yard with comfortable furniture and an off-street parking space behind the house. The decorating is adorable both inside and out and the beds are very comfortable. The cottage is absolutely spotless and has a well appointed full kitchen.
Cathy is a true professional with lots of experience in providing 5 star Airbnb accommodations. If this place is full or too big, check out her other adorable places just around the block.
There is so much to do in Santa Barbara! We went biking, hiking and attended the international Film Festival. We LOVED the Lito Mexican restaurant nearby (it was featured on the TV show, Diners, Drive Ins and Dives) and the Handlebar Coffee Shop. The best cappuccino that I have had in a while. The pastries at the Anderson Bakery on State Street are "to die for". We will be back soon!
We enjoyed our stay at Cathy's cottage. It is a cute, well maintained house; it is comfortable and feels personal. The downtown and the beach are walking distance. If we visit Santa Barbara again we'd love to stay with Cathy!
This was our second time renting Cathy's house and it was the same wonderful experience as the first. We had a wonderful New Years in SB. I definitely plan on staying here again when visiting SB.
We really enjoyed our stay in Santa Barbara. Cathy's rental was gorgeous and you can't beat the location… Walking distance to shopping and restaurants in Downtown Santa Barbara, we used our car only once during our three night stay! Cathy is super easy to communicate with. We'll definitely use her rental for future stays in Santa Barbara!
Cathy's place could not have been better for us. Clean, extremely well organized, roomy and sunny. The best attention to detail of any place we've ever stayed with AirBnB. I only hope we get a chance to go to Santa Barbara again in the future, and if we do, this is where we want to stay. Thanks Cathy!
