Spacious suite with views, privacy in this beautiful home and setting, enjoyed huge double bathroom, great shower, amenities. Excellent location. Joy and Sam are so cordial and welcoming in all regards. This was our first booking in a home 'vacation rental,' glad it was here! Note: suitcases have to be carried up a few short flight of stairs.
Joy and Sam are wonderful hosts. Their home is nestled up the hill, close to downtown and the beach but also quiet and tranquil. The suite is huge with a great bed and it's own bathroom, everything is spotlessly clean. Breakfast is delightful and delivered daily to the door with warm pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt and juice. Joy and Sam are very knowledgeable and happy to share information and recommendations that the tourist books might not contain. Plus their home is full of beautiful photographs and cool sculptures. Will definitely go back.
My wife and I found "Paradise Found" on Trip Advisor and booked it immediately after reading some great reviews. I can only add that those reviews were on target. The location of the B&B was perfect, between the hills and the shore, just a short distance to all of the activities on Main Street and in the Funk zone. We were greeted by Joy who made us feel right at home and led us to a spacious and lovely room with an adjoining bathroom. A good night Sleep was easy to attain as the surrounding were very quiet. A pleasant surprise awaited us in the morning as a knock on the door alerts you to a morning breakfast of fresh fruit, juice, yogurt and warm popovers or croissants. Truly a delight!.
We had a great time. Room was spacious, clean and had all the amenities we needed as travelers. We would stay again if ever in Santa Barbara. It is a small oasis and a pleasure to end and begin your day!
I was happy to find this gem and unwind here from the daily grind. The neighborhood and garden are peaceful. Joy lives up to her name.
My husband and 26yr old daughter and I just spent 4 nights with Joy and Sam. everything was wonderful! The room is spacious, private and comfortable - plenty of room to hang out after a long day of site seeing. The double headed shower is divine and the bathroom large enough and separated enough that two people can use at once. The location is great- we walked and Uber'd everywhere. The breakfast, delivered promptly to our room every morning, was above expectations - fresh fruit, fresh pastries, fresh OJ, and extra goodies. they even supplied special beautiful cake-lets for my birthday. Joy and Sam bend over backwards to make the stay perfect in every way and are a delightful, interesting couple. We would highly recommend staying here.

My girlfriend and I came up on the train for a wine tasting weekend. We Ubered from the train station to this destination and were very happy to find and very pleasant and well kept home-away-from-home. Joy the owner is very sweet and helpful. Id forgotten my phone charger and she shared hers with me. The room was very well appointed with mini fridge, coffee, filtered water, etc. The view out all the windows was gorgeous! Mountain views, beach views...you could see the cruise ships pulling in. This home is located on a very quiet street. This was huge to me-i like quiet! The grounds were very nice too. Its about a 10 min walk to town and very easy to navigate. I will be coming back here no doubt. My girlfriend and i want to make this an annual trip each year to Santa Barbara to wine taste and we will stay here. Great value for the price and i love how personable Joy was and her accomodations. A real treat to your standard motel, hotel, or inn. Lots more personality and charm!!!
