We found this cottage to be quiet, attractive, well equipped, stocked and in excellent condition; the surrounds are lovely - lots of trees. It's a short walk to some restaurants/ shops and in easy reach of Santa Barbara and the beach. Vicky was very helpful and friendly; and we felt that the cottage showed thought and consideration for those staying there.

Thank you Vicky and Gary for having us! It was a true getaway for us and your set-up was so cozy and relaxing. Thank you also for printing our tickets to the show. We appreciated that after trying to find a FedEx/Kinko's around town. Look forward to future stays! Take Care!

Staying in Vicky's guest house was the perfect way to spend a low-key New Year's Eve for us. It is beautiful, clean, and well-located. We walked to the beach and ventured to the nearby shops and cafes. We had everything we needed to do some basic cooking whenever we felt like staying in. Everything was very comfortable and cozy. We slept like rocks as the space is well secluded and devoid of much light pollution. The most audible noise we ever heard was the songs of tree frogs nearby and the distant horn of the Pacific Surfliner train passing through during the day. Vicky was a wonderful host. She greeted us as we arrived and saw us off as we left. The guest house is well-documented, with little tips and instructions exactly where you would expect them to be. Vicky provided firsthand suggestions for where to eat and what to see. All in all, we could not have asked for a better experience to kick off 2017.

Vicky and Gary's place was a welcomed retreat. We had a great time enjoying my boyfriend's birthday there. The fireplace was a gem on cool evenings as was that gorgeous garden during the day. They had a great kitchen with a grill right outside if needed. It was a close uber ride to some fantastic dining at San Ysidro Ranch and beach resorts. Their recommendations made our stay. Thanks for the fruits from your tree, was a yummy treat for the way back. We hope to be back soon!

Vicky's place is absolutely beautiful! Everything was very clean and the location is in a gorgeous residential area. a I love the feel of the place with the Mexican tile and sink in the bathroom and Vicky's artwork throughout the property. We rode our bikes everywhere from here. The owners are very nice people and so helpful. We hope to be back soon!

Staying at Vicky's place was perfect! The guesthouse was warm, sunny and inviting with everything we needed! Quiet, lovely neighborhood with excellent restaurants and close to beautiful beaches. Vicky left a lot of information about the neighborhood and surrounding area which made everything so easy! Would definitely stay there again!
