“Enchanting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

My husband rented this place for me for my birthday and our first visit to Santa Barbara. It was absolutely awesome!!! Caron and Doug, the owners were wonderful and extremely helpful. The unit was beautifully decorated, and the courtyard simply enchanting. Every detail was impeccably addressed. The unit was a short walk to the happenings on State Street. It was cozy, and a much better experience then staying at a hotel. We would go back in a heartbeat, and because of how much we enjoyed our stay there, we are more likely to seek out more accomodations like this in the future.

“Great Stay In Santa Barbara”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My husband and I stayed here for 2 days. Caron and Doug were great. Caron has thought of everything. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. Caron also had some coffee and bread that she had baked. The placed is located within walking distances to all the downtown restaurants and a short distance to the beach. Caron has bicycles if you need them. Caron suggested some great restaurants for us to try.
Thanks again for a wonderful stay, and we hope to see you again soon.

“A Lovely Santa Barbara Cottage!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Doug and Caron have lovingly restored and decorated this beautiful cottage, creating a welcoming oasis for the perfect Santa Barbara vacation. From fresh baked cookies to high quality robes & slippers to bikes for local exploration and excellent restaurant recommendations, they are the perfect hosts. The cottage is ideally located just a couple blocks off upper State Street, so, most activities are within walking distance, if one is a walker. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking in and the cottage has a great dining space for enjoying dinner with friends. There is a cozy fireplace for reading with a glass of wine and a spacious tub for treating oneself to a bubble bath. Our time at Casitas De Colores was delightful from start to finish!

“Wonderful & Cute Bungalow with Great Downtown Santa Barbara Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

My wife, our 10-week old daughter, and I stayed in Casitas de Colores 112A for 5 nights in January 2013. It was perfect. The property was exactly as advertised and in a great location. It is 2 blocks over from State street - the main drag with shops and restaurants, and it was about a 20 +/- minute walk from the beach/Amtrak station.

Caron and Doug, the owners, were great -- there if you needed something, but invisible if that is what we wanted. Caron was gracious enough to drive us to the airport, and she should be considered part of the charm and character of the place.

The bungalow is decorated wonderfully and the kitchen is very functional. Chocolate-chip cookies greeted us on arrival and the kitchen had some of the basics already there - olive oil, spices, zip lock bags, aluminum foil, etc. The small things that make life easy if you plan to cook. There is a grocery store a quick 5 blocks or so away.

There is a great little court yard that faces away from the street and is a great place to just to hang out and read book or chat over a glass of wine. There is a laundry room, detergent and all, with extra beach towels. While we were there, Caron was busy getting roses for a couple staying in there other rental house in front of ours. I have little doubt that Caron would help you out or point you in the right direction for anything you need.

We did stay with our 10-week old, and I saw a review that someone else stayed with a young toddler. We had no problems at all; however, I would be hesitant with a toddler to youngster. It really is not intended to be a place for families -- they do have house in front with a bit more room.

I think my wife said it best. We may have to visit Santa Barbara again just to stay here!

“Wonderful Santa Barbara Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2012 for a stay in November 2012

My husband, 1 year old daughter and I stayed at the Case De Colores over Thanksgiving. The house was perfect for our family. It was decorated beautifully and was very clean. The one bedroom was the perfect size for us and the pack n' play for our little girl. The kitchen was fully stocked and made it easy for us to have lunches and dinners while the little one slept. There were even freshly baked cookies waiting for us when we arrived.

The location of the house was perfect for our stay. It is walking distance to the wonderful shops and restaurants on State Street and downtown Santa Barbara. It was also a short drive to the zoo, which we highly recommend for little ones. The owners also provided us with a booklet of wonderful suggestions of things to do during our Santa Barbara stay. We greatly enjoyed wine tasting on the Urban Wine Trail in downtown Santa Barbara.
