Great. Peace & quiet, location good. The fact it's a separate building is a big plus. Nice interior & furnishings.
The hosts were nice - we didn't interact much because we spent most of our time with our family.
Roger was very welcoming to all of us! The pictures of his place are great - but when you get there it is beautiful! Perfect location for our family as well as safe and quiet. We highly recommend staying in this easy centralized location if you are visiting Santa Barbara!
My friend and I had an amazing time at Chez Jardin! Roger and Kathleen were warm, welcoming, and helpful! The cottage was the perfect size, great for cooking (they had pots/pans, basic spices), linens were very clean, beds were very comfortable, and washer/dryer. We felt very well taken care of but also had privacy to go about our day. Their garden is beautiful and they even have an outdoor shower! Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
We do count the 5 days at Rogers and Kathy´s house as the best during our stay in Claifornia. The warmest wellcome ever, fresh organges and graipfruits from their own garden, a bottle of red wine. And then two lovely bedrooms, very cosy, clean and quiet. A big comfi living room, and sitting in the garden in the evening sourrounded by birds and the lovely smell of the trees..... I only can say 10 out of 10 for coming back to Roger´s place. We would have loved to stay !
A ten out of ten. It simply does not get any better than this.
Roger and Kathleen are kind, generous, accommodating, friendly and truly genuine.
They graciously welcomed me into their home and made me feel as if I belonged. The accommodations are lovely; plenty of space, airy and sunny, nicely furnished with all the modern conveniences and surrounded by marvelous gardens.
A happy place to be content !
The apt was spacious and very comfortable especially the beds and comforters.. really nice after a long day of sightseeing.
The location is close to Montecito and the beach area so its very convenient and accessible to the highways.. The orange and lemon trees outside the apt were an especially nice view as well as the garden.. VERY nice stay..
We had a nice stay at Chez Jardin. Roger was a good host and the accommodations were very nice. The livingroom was spacious and comfertable with a nice couch, tv, and stereo. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook a nice Thanksgiving dinner. We spent half the time in the kitchen/diningroom area because it was so nice up there. The garden area was also nice to look out on from large sliding glass doors in the living room.
