The apartment is cozy with amazing view and nice outdoor spaces. It is not big but spacious enough -we were 4 adults, one toddler and an infant-. We enjoyed our trip to Santa Barbara and loved to stay there. Also the house is well decorated, we admire every little detail. The only problem is that there is a dining area inside house but not big enough for 5 people, if the weather is cold/wet that might be a problem.
The apartment was just right for our party of three. It's in a cool, quiet neighborhood with lots of other nice properties. The porch is sweet, especially with the outdoor heater. We couldn't get the indoor heater to work, but luckily there were enough blankets to keep everyone nice and cozy at night. The entertainment system is serviceable. I'd say the only thing we were missing were some nice, mellow tunes to cover the din of the traffic on the 101. It'd be sweet if there was a simple sound system that we could use for playing music on our phones. We'll definitely keep this place in mind for our next trip!
Erica was a very friendly host... She took in our little tribe without reservation that there were two teen boys with us; She was on the phone immediately upon our arrival, making certain we were able to get in to the house, get comfortable and reassured us she was just a phone call away if we needed anything. Even little gifts of Starbucks coffee!!
This little seaside cottage in Summerland was amazing and so relaxing... breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, great antiques stores and cafes... steps from the beach and ocean... a 5 minute drive to Carpinteria and Montecito... for shopping, art and upscale dining, just :90 mins from LA and a world of difference!! If we get the chance, we'll be back for Christmas year after year!! A perfect find on AirBNB!!!
It was my first time using AirBNB. Our experience was fantastic. The place was clean and very welcoming. The information and communication were great (although we wanted to get away, so we didn't check emails or messages). The house is connected to another place which people live in, so it wasn't as private as we thought, but the neighbors didn't intrude or disrupt the experience. You can hear them talking and walking around from time to time, so I'm sure they could hear us as well.
This apartment is beautiful and we LOVED staying here. The view and outdoor space are amazing for warm weather months. House is also extremely well decorated with beautiful and thoughtful little eating/ reading nooks everywhere. We had 4 people (2 couples) in our party, but the apartment felt very spacious.
The service and 24 hour availability for questions, etc... is also outstanding. We would definitely stay here again!
Sea Glass Holly was a perfect retreat for my family for the weekend. We were in the area for a wedding and wanted to avoid hotels since we have a young baby and wanted our own space. The house itself is charming - all the decorations are tasteful and geared towards a relaxed stay. The location was actually more convenient than staying in Santa Barbara for us since we weren't interested in tourist activities and had a car. The little town of Summerland is very cute. Great cafe and a number of low key restaurants as well as a locals beach just down the street. It would be hard if you didn't have a car since it's about a 10 min drive to any real attractions. Erica, from Turnkey Rentals, was very communicative and available if we had questions. The home owner stopped by to greet us and drop off flowers and organic fruit when we arrived. It's not fancy, but it's very peaceful.
