Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a great two weeks at Jane & Paul's East Beach retreat and would wholeheartedly recommend their comfortable condo and many thoughtful and welcoming gestures and accessories, including fast and reliable Wi-Fi. For anyone who wants to cook in a night or two, the kitchen is well equipped and very workable. The only surprise was loud noise from the nearby 101 Freeway, especially in the wee morning hours, although we soon tuned it out.

  • My fiancé and I came here for a quick weekend getaway. I emailed Jane and Paul to check availability and they responded very fast. The condo was great, very spacious and cozy with probably more amenities than you would find at a local hotel. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is considering staying here!!

    February 2014
  • It was great staying overall. House is clean and nice and Paul helped us from the first day till the last moment. Bed was comfortable and sheets were clean and basically had everything you need is there ready. I will recommend this place to people. Thank you.

  • We had a terrific stay here. Jane & Paul made us feel most welcome, and they gave us great information about the area, including a lovely beachside breakfast spot less than 2 blocks away. The condo is clean, quiet, and the bed is extremely comfortable. Tons of natural light too. I would highly recommend this place!

  • Pictures really don't do this home justice. It was such a cozy home and my husband and I felt very welcome here. Jane and Paul easily accommodated our very late check-in and even provided a very handy binder full of helpful information for our first visit to Santa Barbara. We had such a relaxing weekend and we'd love to come back to Jane and Paul's!

    October 2013
  • Our stay at Jane & Paul's condo was perfection. It was like a home away from home. It was so nice to come back to this lovely condo after a busy day of sightseeing. Jane & Paul were very helpful and made us feel welcome. We would definitely stay here again!

  • Everything about our stay was perfect. Jane & Paul are fantastic hosts and embody everything that is great about Airbnb. My wife and I came up to Santa Barbara for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary and our time spent at the condo was probably our favorite part of the whole weekend! The porch in the morning for coffee was delightful. Thanks again, Jane & Paul!

    September 2013
  • Jane and Paul were great - they accommodated our after-midnight arrival time, and even had the sofa bed made up and ready for us to collapse into. The house is awesome, very trendy and warm design. Finally, being ~1.5 blocks from the beach can't be beat! We would stay here again in a minute.
