We really enjoyed staying at Jasmine Cottage. The owners thoughtfully included snacks, fruit, fresh flowers, and even brownies! The house had plenty of room for the five of us, although the downstairs room with the twin beds did not have a door that would allow us to separate it from the rest of the house. We had a great view...

My family of 3 couples rented the Captains Cottage in Summerland for a wedding at the Santa Barbara Zoo in October. This was a fun place to stay. The nautical theme with numerous seaworthy knick knacks made the place feel like a real vacation. The location close to the beach was perfect. Although, guests have to deal with a bit...

I have rented three of the Santa Barbara Cottages. Jasmine, Paradise and Ecalyptus Hill. Each was lovely, beautifully furnished, views of the ocean. Jasmine and Paradise are in Summerland, an adorable town. Eucalyptus is up on Eucalyptus Hill, charming, charming. The kind owner greeted me with homemade brownies each time, and thinks of every touch to make you feel at...

I have stayed in a dozen homes rented from online sites. No hostess compares to Francesca. Brownies and fruit on the kitchen counter, champagne, soda, butter, & milk in the fridge, full-size bottles of shampoo, conditioner, lotion & soap in the bathrooms, chocolates on the pillows. And, my favorite, the toilet paper. I know this seems simple and silly, but...

We were blessed with perfect weather during our recent stay. The ocean views and decks are fabulous. The location provides great access to Santa Barbara and points of interest around the Central Coast. We have been renting from VRBO for the past 6 years, and this was the best furnished home, with great amenities to make you feel at home....

My girlfriends and I rented Jasmine Cottage for a long weekend when we were down from Sacramento running the Santa Barbara Marathon. We could not have been more pleasantly surprised and grateful for such a darling little cottage. It was spotlessly clean as if it were the residence of the manager herself and we were immediately relaxed and smiling ear...

Every year we reserve Francesca's Paradise Cottage for our 6 week winter getaway from cold and snowy Michigan. The first time we stayed we were so pleased that it was exactly as pictured on the web and perfect for our needs. The cottage itself is cozy and well appointed--we use the kitchen a lot and it is fully equipped and...

It is an enormous honor to be able to welcome back guests year after year. I realize that if you have never been to a vacation rental, you don't know what to expect and that it can be highly variable depending on the owner. However, we do everything possible to make your visit like a "home away from home" experience...

For our first trip to Santa Barbara, we stayed at the Captain's Cottage for a week this summer and loved it. The house is not for folks who can't do stairs; but if you can, it is oh so worth it. The master suite in the upper level was amazing. Tried to figure out how to bring it home with...
