Yang’ secluded retreat is one of these places you wished you never had to leave. Airbnb needs to open a six star rating for places like this one. Situated in a very quiet residential area, it is very well equipped and maintained. The level of comfort is excellent. The preparation of the stay was perfect. Excellent communication with the hosts who provided very detailed accurate advices. Downtown Santa Barbara is a $15 Lyft/Uber ride away. The beaches and shops are only a few minutes drive away. This place is truly amazing in a great location. When we travel again in this area, we will surely try to book it again. We might even organize our dates according to Yang’s availability.

From the start Yang was excellent at getting back to me on my questions. Check in for my fiance and I was very easy and the place was spotless! Bigger than the pics show and the outside deck is (URL HIDDEN) quite and peaceful to enjoy your morning coffee. Great mountainside location in Monticeto and an easy 10 minute drive/Uber into town. Plus, I have to thank them as I had a few packages delivered from work and they were more than gracious to help. Such a great stay, thanks. Chris
