Unique elevated cottage in natural surroundings yet close to town and beach.
We loved our four day stay in this old wooden house on a wooded slope to the West of the beautiful and interesting town of Santa Barbara, with its historical sites, excellent beaches and nearby forest trails. The air was clean and we ate nearly all our meals outside: breakfast on the driveway to the east of the cottage and other meals on the private wooden veranda at the other side. The views were terrific. At night we saw skunks - cute looking animals that we don't get in the UK. Happily, we didn't smell them! The beds and bathroom facilities were clean, comfortable and all that we could have wished for at this price in Santa Barbara. The kitchen is compact, but most of our cooking was done on the very convenient gas barbecue on the veranda. Sharon was extremely hospitable and easy to communicate with before our stay. I was only sorry that she had to leave the day after we arrived, as I would have liked to talk to her more. In her absence, her children also went out of their way to help us. We felt trusted and would trust Sharon and her family with our own home if they ever came our way.
