Overall good. A bit misleading regarding pool availability.
Grounds and the surrounding view are beautiful. Inside eclectic, a bit dated, but very workable. Written directions to home could be improved. Main issue is the pool was highlighted heavily in pictures, description, even rental agreement (pool cover to keep warm) but found out late that it isn't usable off season. The fine print regarding pool months was hidden (now corrected after complaining to owner about it) at the bottom of link to see all amenities. Not mentioned in rental contract or main body of description. I found this miscommunication misleading (owner said it was my fault- go figure). In essence we paid for a primary feature of the house without being able to use it. I would consider other properties in the area during off months if pool use is of interest. As always, caveat emptor.
I'm sorry the guest found our description misleading. It certainly was not intentional. Under amenities which include pool, it stated that it was not heated.
I understand that there is a lot to read within the listing and things can be overlooked. However, many guests coming during the winter ask at time of booking if the pool is heated. (And often other questions besides).
We give very precise directions to our house. Unfortunately this guest chose not to use them..
Beautiful and place
If you are looking for a great home with a Beautiful location, this is the place for you. Not too far from Main Street, but a good ten minute drive at least. Very nice couple live on site, but not a problem at all.
Gorgeous House With Spectacular Views!
Our stay was nothing but perfect and the owner was wonderful to communicate with. I will definitely book again if returning to this area with my family or a large group.
Weekend Getaway with the Girls
There are no words to describe how wonderful our stay was. Hilary was so easy to work with and communication was always a breeze. This was a surprise weekend for my mom's 60th and boy was she ever shocked to learn that this beautiful oasis was OURS for the weekend! We will cherish the memories made here, forever and I know several ladies from our group plan on coming back! The pool was perfect in the evenings and the patio seating was also wonderful to relax and enjoy time together. The home was very spacious which was perfect for our large group. It was a very warm weekend in early September so the ceiling fans and fan in the closet came in handy since there is not AC. Thank you Hilary for a wonderful experience and stay at your beautiful home!
Great house for an extended family vacation
We rented this house as it met all the bedroom/bed configuration requirements. We were blown away by the sheer beauty of the landscaped grounds, stunning pool area and beautifully decorated house. As mentioned in previous comments, the views are spectacular and the grounds are well-kept and beautifully landscaped. The pool was clean and the 90 degree water was comfortable. The house is older but large, comfortable, and clean. All of our meals were spent at the outdoor table right outside the kitchen door. The house location gave you a lot of privacy yet downtown Santa Barbara was just a short drive away. Owners (Hilary and Michael) and Sajan were very responsive and a pleasure to work with. Dreaming of coming back!
Wonderful place to stay. The view from the pool is gorgeous, the house was roomier than expected, and Hilary is a wonderful host.
