Excellent house to stay in in Santa Barbara. My friends and I visited for a wedding and it was a lovely place to relax with friends. Just a heads up, both bathrooms were located in the respective bedrooms, which wasn't a problem for us but something to keep in mind if you are staying with a larger group. The pull out couch bed was not working, however the owner supplied a fully functioning and easy to use air mattress in its place. This house has a beautiful yard and patio, very quiet and peaceful street that was close walking/driving distance from shops and downtown and the beach!

Timm made the stay go very smoothly. Check-in and check-out were easy and straightforward, and the cottage itself was very comfortable! While the location is a little out of the way, it's easy to get anywhere by taking a Lyft or driving if you bring a car. The only quibble was that we forgot to bring our own soap and shampoo, which seems like a small thing to provide.

Place was just as advertised and worked perfectly as our place to crash after a full day of hiking in the gorgeous mountains above Montecito. We had everything we needed and the location was quiet and convenient to the freeway. Communication and check in/out were smooth and easy. Thanks Timm and Cherise for accommodating our last minute stay!!

The cottage has a lovely garden. It has basic supplies for a short stay. The neighborhood is quiet and felt safe. One needs a car to get around.

I came up with a few girlfriends for the weekend to relax and enjoy Santa Barbara, one of our favorite places. The place was clean and the perfect size for 6 of us. The only issue we ran into was when we had the heater on, it seemed like only the bedroom in the front of the house was heating up to the point where it felt 10-15 degrees hotter than the other rooms. Other than that, we loved this place and had a great time!
