Great location, well suited for big groups, close to the beach. Elle was a very good host and easy to access and available at all times.

This is a very spacious and quiet Montecito hills home. My family and I recently stayed here in the beginning of July. There were 10 of us who stayed in the home and we all had plenty of room and found it a comfortable spot to relax. The pool was a great way to cool off in the hot weather, Elle was easily available if we had any questions about our stay.

The house was very comfy! I love the decor and all the fun books in the bookcase! The kitchen has everything one could need for a short stay, and there's a market down the street in case you need anything last minute! We would love to stay here again :-)

Elle's home is lovely and exactly as advertised. Check-in was seemless, the home was perfectly clean, and we had no issues throughout our stay. I would definitely stay again if we head back to Santa Barbara / Montecito

I am a Doctor of Chiropractic. I practiced for 16 years and then retired. During the time I had my practice I bought real estate in Santa Barbara! They were fixers so I fixed them and rented them. I now manage my apartments and vacation rentals!!

I was addicted to buying real estate! My last purchase was in 2007 when i bought an 8 unit apartment building in Santa Barbara. Now I am trying to keep them!! I love remodeling the properties and furnishing them!! My mother recently moved to Santa Barbara and helped me with my remodel of the Downtown Victorian Villa! It turned out beautifully.

My favorite travel was when I went to Japan and traveled there for 1 month! It was incredible! The Bullet train, the nightlife little pubs, the fun, loving people, the beautiful ocean and much more! I love taking short trips to Las Vegas and cruises to Mexico! I also loved my travel to Europe visiting 9 countries!!

Stephen King was 1 of my favorite authors! I also love some of the movies that were made from his books! I love Italian food and Sushi! Pascuzzi and Aregato are 2 of my favorite restaurants!

When you stay at the downtown Victorian Villa you will feel like Kings and Queens! You will step onto the front porch and enter through the front door inside the gorgeous Villa which is comfortable and inviting! I may not meet you there but I will be a phone call away! I will call you to make sure you checked in OK and to see if you have any questions. I will be available 24/7 for you!
