The Space

This is a newly renovated cottage tucked away in the peaceful formal garden behind my house in old Santa Barbara. The cottage has its own small private patio. The location is great: we are at the bottom of the Riviera, near concerts at the Santa Barbara Bowl, a pretty fifteen minute walk to the historic courthouse and State Street, a five minute drive to the beaches or the Mission. The city bus stop is around the corner. One bedroom and the living room has a sofa that opens into a queen size bed. There is a newly renovated fully equipped kitchen. One of the pleasures of Santa Barbara is to explore our amazing farmer's markets. If you would like to rent my larger garden patio, please check with me. Amenities include cable, television, wifi, a washer and dryer, professional cleaning. I have two ridiculously friendly dogs who will visit you in the garden if you like, but please do not rent if you are allergic.

  • Carol's guest house was perfect! The house is located within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants State Street has to offer. There is a beautiful garden with a magnificent smell of various flowers where you can enjoy your morning coffee. I went with some friends and I would come back to stay in this exact spot with my family as well. Overall great experience.

  • Das einfache Häuschen liegt zentral, aber sehr ruhig in der Nähe von vielen, netten Restaurants- und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Umgeben von einem wunderschönen und wilden Garten liegt das Häuschen im hinteren Teil des Grundstückes.Der Küchenbereich ist neu gestaltet und sehr gemütlich. Die anderen Bereiche sind in Ordnung, überwiegend sauber und haben uns für zwei Nächte ausgereicht.

  • We had everything we needed at this quaint little guest house. The garden area was beautiful. The location could not have been better for what we were there for-a wedding at the courthouse. Everything went smoothly and we would stay here next time. Thanks Carol, we had a great time!

  • We have great times in Carol's house! The view in the morning from her garden was amazing. There you will wake up with the birdies singing! So nice! Carol was very nice with us. So kind!

  • We had a wonderful stay @ Carol's. The unit is very clean & quiet. Her dogs are very friendly & not intrusive. The unit is walking distance to “The Bowl” which is a nice plus if you are in town for a show.
