Great vacation in Santa Barbara

by Robert on 09/30/2021
All around great trip. Nice house just a short walk to the beach. Well stock with everything we needed including Peleton, cooking stuff, and everything for heading out to the beach. I really liked the grocery store just around the corner.

Great Home!

by Victoria on 09/30/2021
The property was excellent and in a great location. The property manager was quick to respond to questions!

Loved it!

by John W on 09/30/2021
It's a very nice property, well maintained, good location.

Convenient Santa Barbara Downtown Location!

by Guillermo on 09/30/2021
Extremely functional and convenient place to stay while visiting Santa Barbara. I had originally booked for three weeks for a work-related assignment. Due to innumerable complications, I had to continue extending my stay. The place is very well located and the management team worked with me to extend my stay. Would definitely come back!

Wonderful Stay

by James on 09/23/2021
This cottage was the perfect location & such a cute spot to stay. It was the perfect get-a-way before school starts. We had a lovely time!

What an amazing home!

by Melanie on 09/23/2021
The views are spectacular! We didn't get to spend a lot of time at the home but what we did was absolutely enjoyed sitting on the deck in the early mornings and late at night. Absolutely amazing views! We came here from Idaho to celebrate a wedding at Hope Ranch. Thank you for an amazing property and for allowing us to spend time at your home!

Thank you for sharing your wonderful home

by Teri on 09/23/2021
We had wonderful weather and a terrific time! I was able to have my whole family here. We had the "Christmas" we were unable to have in December due to COVID. It was great. The kids had so much fun riding the waves and jumping in the ocean. The Dads + some of the kids had a successful fishing trip! The home is beautiful and so roomy! Thank you!

Loved the location

by William on 09/23/2021
Beautiful home & fantastic location! We cycled, hiked, kayaked, & went for evening walks! Just paradise. Thank you

Thank you!

by Catherine on 09/23/2021
Thanks so much for letting us stay here! The stay was wonderful, no complaints!

Second stay, always wonderful!

by Martha on 09/23/2021
We loved our second stay at Seashell Cottage and look forward to many more. The cottage is everything a beach retreat should be. We're so grateful that it is here. Thank you!

Relaxing Weekend!

by Sreven on 09/23/2021
Thank you for sharing this beautiful cottage. Wonderful place to relax and retreat. I will be back!

Wonderful Bungalow in the Heart of Downtown

by Mikayla on 09/17/2021
This cute Santa Barbara bungalow was perfect for our stay. It was quaint, clean, and had all the necessities you could want for a lovely stay. The location downtown was great, and we could easily walk for breakfast and coffee in the morning. I would definitely recommend staying here and will hopefully be visiting again soon.

Great place for big families

by Jennifer on 09/17/2021
Wonderfully located, quiet, plenty of space for our family of 8 adults and 4 kids, lovely outdoor BBQ, and dining area, nicely appointed, and responsive property managers. I might recommend that they add more kitchen items (e.g., utensils, wine glasses, plates, and cups) to accommodate a large group and perhaps air conditioning on the 2nd level (it got pretty warm in the afternoon). This did not take away though from the wonderful setting it provided for our family!

Perfect Getaway

by Chileshe on 09/17/2021
Yet another perfect getaway! This was our second stay! Seamless check-in, wonderful stay! You will not be disappointed!

Lovely Place for Family Retreat

by Amy on 09/17/2021
We came to Santa Barbara to see some visiting family. I feel we lucked out with this place. It is spacious to fit our family (including extended family). The view from the deck overlooking the nature preserve was relaxing and lovely. The house comes with a lot of amenities (beach towels, tons of dinnerware, blankets, etc.). I called guest services to ask where to find the cutting boards -- I knew they were somewhere -- and we had a good laugh when I found the 7+ cutting boards on the side of the kitchen island. It was nice to have quick access to guest services. The house is not an updated/modern look, yet it's an excellent place for a getaway with family/friends. We would stay here again.

Cool House!

by Christine on 09/17/2021
The house was an experience all on its own. The pool was fabulous and we loved our stay!

Fabulous, luxury home!

by Lyndsey on 09/17/2021
This house is perfectly appointed, with a fabulous kitchen, large gathering spaces, and beautiful furnishings. The pool, yard, and hot tub are lovely and immaculately landscaped.

Quiet life one block from town center

by Dr Ralph on 09/17/2021
Convenient location, immaculate house, patio, and gardens. Bocci court and fire pit out the back. Everything we needed!

Birthday Getaway

by Phyllis on 09/17/2021
Perfect place to celebrate mom's 70th birthday! Thank you!

Family Vacation

by Friesen Family on 09/17/2021
Lovely home with fun games for kids. We loved riding bikes down to the beach and the backyard was fun for running around and having dinner outside. Was a great location and we had a great time on vacation and hope to come back! Thanks for sharing your home!

Thank you!

by The Desilvas on 09/17/2021
Thank you so much for the wonderful accommodations! We had such an excellent stay! You have such a lovely home! Everything was clean and organized and we loved the labels around the house to find our way around. We're so happy we chose Riviera Canyon for our stay here in Santa Barbara!

Family Vacation

by Getty Family on 09/17/2021
We had a much-needed long weekend with family and were able to spend time relaxing, exploring, drinking wine, and enjoying this great space! Grandma had fun with her two toddler grandchildren! Many thanks!

Thank you!

by Amanda & Peter on 09/17/2021
Thank you so much for a wonderful place to stay. We love it here. I love the balcony and I love the colorful room I had oh and I love the hot tub and the pictures on the walls. Oh right my name is Nora and I am 7 and I love to write. Again thank you so much for letting us stay here. Our family of 5 felt right at home in your wonderful place. Thank you!

Amazing Stay

by Miriam M. on 09/17/2021
Dear Johnson family, Thank you for an amazing stay. Your home was very comfortable, spacious, and beautiful! We enjoyed our stay and looking forward to our next trip to Santa Barbara! Thank you!

Girls Weekend

by Victoria on 09/17/2021
This house served as a perfect retreat for us girls - enjoyed all of the gorgeous landscape (and of course all the wine)!

The house was amazing!

by Valerie on 09/15/2021
Thank you Paradise Rentals for the wonderful hospitality. We spent our time enjoying wine, shopping & delicious dining! Now we head back to AL! 2020 Girls Trip Crew!

Wonderful home!

by Russell & Slakoff Family on 09/15/2021
Watching the sunrise every morning while drinking coffee on the deck outside is such a memorable experience. We've made a number of visits to Provence in the south of France & this property reminds us in so many ways of Provence. The purpose of this visit to Santa Barbara is to show the UCSB campus to our granddaughter, daughter, & son-in-law. We graduated from UCSB. We're all hoping that our granddaughter Lily chooses UCSB so that we have the opportunity to visit her many times over the course of the coming years- and, of course, we'll stay right here!

Thank you!

by The Moore/McCloud Family on 09/15/2021
We had a wonderful stay! Both the home and the beach/views are lovely! Thank you so much!

Downtown Escape

by Johnson & Boschna Families on 09/15/2021
Enjoyed our stay. Beautiful views and a great setting!

Thank you!

by Brian Rosenberger & Rose Gallway on 09/15/2021
Thank you so much for allowing our family the use of your beautiful home! We were in town for my daughter's wedding and your home made us all feel so comfortable and welcomed! It was the perfect home away from home!

Downtown Paradise

by Malloy on 09/15/2021
We loved our stay at Downtown Paradise. Wonderful, safe, and clean home base for my 30th birthday. Thank you to the Paradise Rentals Team for working with us! Until next time! xx


by Travis, Jen & Finley on 09/15/2021
What a wonderful home to stay in! We loved our time here! Two recommendations for others: 1. Butterfly Beach 2. Brophy Bros! Thank you for letting us stay!!

Birthday Weekend

by Hill Family on 09/15/2021
Thanks, it was a great birthday weekend! Loved all the shopping areas & restaurants in the area! But the patio was everything for me! Thanks for the relaxing get-away!

Thank you!

by Elizabeth on 09/15/2021
I was lucky to stay for 5 days at the lovely Sea Glass Cottage. - Thank you! I LOVED the views on the huge window, so gorgeous, loved the front patio, and the true color and the feel of all the furnishings. Amazing location for getting to the beach! Thnx!

Best rental experience for us EVER.

by Michael K. on 09/15/2021
Also... on 10/08 we secretly got married! We walked over to the beach, had an officiant, photographer, musician, and witness. That's it. It was perfect. And now you know too. We will be back! - M+ K

Family Vacation

by William H. on 09/15/2021
We love this place. It is awesome! We had a great time! Thank you!

A fun experience

by Kristin on 08/30/2021
We loved celebrating Grandma's 70th birthday in such a magical place. We will always remember our stay at the Whale House!

Santa Barbara Hills Hideaway

by April on 08/30/2021
We thoroughly enjoyed the view over downtown Santa Barbara and the harbor. Nicely appointed and comfortable home

Great stay!

by Jeanne on 08/30/2021
Immaculate home with all the amenities/appliances/accessories you could ever need. So fun to play on the beach and watch the surfers all day. Close to the highway, but the waves drown out most of the noise. Heavenly property for our family (2 yr old and 3yr old). We would stay here again!!!

Fabulous accommodation for a group, large or small

by Audra on 08/30/2021
We were in the SY Valley to celebrate a birthday with family and friends. We cooked at the property every night (one night a chef cooked for us - booked through Key Concierge). Everything was oriented to allow for quiet relaxation or active entertaining - pool table, ping pong, fire pits, workout equipment, board games. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we were impressed by the quality of the linens, kitchen cookware and bakeware, dishes, cutlery, appliances, and overall decor. We have a few feedback items that we are glad to give, as it seems we were the very first guests. But if none of the feedback is taken, it will still be a wonderful place to stay. The arrangement of beds would make it even better for a family with small children and for couples.

Couldn't have been better!

by Martin on 08/30/2021
2 great properties side by side which was ideal. So comfortable and easy walk to the beach. Ample parking. Really easy process overall in a lovely well maintained property. Thanks so much!

Villa Serene - A Montecito Canyon Oasis

by Kartick on 08/26/2021
What a delightful property in the heart of Montecito. Very well maintained and close to all amenities. This property was charming and just fantastic. Would highly recommend it. Paradise Retreats was amazing and professional. They made everything so easy. Thank you.

Excellent Location with Resort Amenities

by Wendy on 08/25/2021
This property was more impressive than the listing. Very organized and thoughtful consideration for guests with plenty of extra supplies. They kicked it up a notch with plush linens and towels giving that extra resort feel. The placement of seating areas throughout the property really expanded the living space. Whoever set this place up has great style and experience with particular items throughout the home. The beds and seating were very cozy and made it easy to relax. The location is right down the street from downtown action, restaurants, and shops. We enjoyed our visit and the beaches. Thank you for everything.

Magical home, wonderful location

by Richard on 08/25/2021
Amazing architecture, plenty of room to spread out. 25-meter lap pool and everything you'd want in Santa Barbara, Montecito is within a 12-minute drive. We went to a winery in Solvang, a day at the beach, a round of golf for the golfers, and Botanical gardens for the rest. Solid WiFi throughout the house. BBQ on deck. Ultra private. In other words, all we could ask for. Thanks!

SeaRenity is Wonderful!

by Thomas on 08/25/2021
We enjoyed the many amenities this property offers, from the rec room with pool table to the bocce court to the hot tub. The many bedrooms accommodated our family of 10 — 6 adults and 4 children — very well. The kitchen was very well equipped with modern appliances. We had a great 7 day stay!

Wedding Retreat

by Hansen Family on 08/25/2021
We spent 5 days on the property during our daughter's wedding. Our family enjoyed the comforts of the property. A very peaceful setting with awesome views of Santa Barbara!

A lovely home. Quiet and peaceful.

by Nina on 08/18/2021
A lovely home to get away with a small family or just two love birds. Nice and clean.

Best Privacy and Location

by Lawrence on 08/18/2021
Clean and complete. Close to all local attractions (via backroads) without having to fight tourist traffic too much. AC was great during nearly 100 deg. days. Wi-Fi was not as bad as others have reported due to sending units distributed throughout the house. Management was very responsive and nice.

Great property, great location!

by Eric on 08/18/2021
My interior designer wife was very impressed. The house is great and you can't beat the location. My only complaint would be the lack of air conditioning as it got a little hot while we were in town. Wasn't a huge issue though as we opened up the windows to let in the cool night air.

Peaceful, private and lovely views!

by Dominique on 08/18/2021
We had a terrific week at Sea Cliff. The outdoor space at this property is great. We ate outdoors at every meal and loved sitting on the big comfy couch to read under the umbrellas. We started each morning with a great walk on the beach. You do need to check out the tide tables to make sure you go at low tide, but it wasn't a big deal for us. You can walk south for about 2 miles and then turn around. In the afternoon, we had a great time boogie boarding. The waves were perfect for our group that ranged from 11 to 77! We loved the privacy of the SeaCliff community And the location is great! We took day trips to Montecito, Summerland, Carpinteria, Ojai and the Camarillo outlets. Wish we could've stayed longer!!

Great Summerland Get Away

by Jennifer on 08/18/2021
The cottage was ideal. It was located right in downtown Summerland and an 8-10 minute walk to the beach. Just lovely!


by Gina on 08/18/2021
Great location! We rented this for 5 people to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Beautiful and clean house. Super comfortable. We did not want to leave! We plan on coming back and would love to stay here again!

Destination Wedding

by Jackie M on 08/18/2021
Our youngest son was getting married and we needed a house with 3 bedrooms that could accommodate a 1-year-old. The house was perfect for 7 adults and a 1 yo. Comfortable furniture, beautiful gardens with outdoor seating, and a great location to State Street and the surrounding areas. Definitely recommend this property!

Family reunion

by Rafael on 08/18/2021
We wanted a family reunion in which every member was away from their own town, away from work, in a nice place to enjoy time with family. This was the place! Perfect climate, very nice town, the property was clean and nice. We had a very nice time.

Great time, beautiful house! Thank you!

by The Neils on 08/17/2021
We had a great time. You've thought of everything to make our stay feel like being home - but with a beautiful view too. We loved the design, the comfortable furniture, and the layout, and the rec room. Looking forward to a future visit.

Thanksgiving Week in Santa Barbrara!

October Wedding in Santa Barbara

by Jill, Pat, Claire & John Pfeiffer on 08/16/2021
We came to Santa Barbara to celebrate our son & now daughter in laws wedding. We enjoyed pizza on the beach on Friday and a beautiful wedding celebration at Our Lady of Carmel and then the party at Hotel Californian. What an amazing weekend! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Wonderful Home!

by Lisa on 08/16/2021
Such a beautiful home to experience Santa Barbara in. Every amenity was so thought of and we had a wonderful time with our friend here.

Birthday Surprise

by Joy & Brett on 08/06/2021
Our holiday to Santa Barbara was twofold. My boyfriend surprised me with a weekend b-day getaway and to celebrate our first Valentine's Day together. When we arrived at this magical place, words couldn't express how special we both felt having the opportunity to stay here. We both felt like little kids again on an adventure. Thank you for sharing this special place with us. We cannot wait to come back and share it with others!

Great house with amazing views!

by The Roddy's on 08/06/2021
We felt right at home, perfect for what we needed. We highly recommend Ostrich Land. Thank you!

We loved our month in SB!

by The Brown Family on 08/06/2021
Your home is very beautiful and relaxing! The location couldn't be better and property management was very responsive when needed. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with our family. We'll be back again!

Thank you!

by Heather on 08/04/2021
Thank you for helping us have the most memorable experience at your house!!

Fabulous house, amazing location!

by The Connors on 08/04/2021
The house and accommodations could not be beat. By far the cleanest house we've ever rented. Absolutely adored the giant couch on the patio and having our own personal sandpit for the kids was essential for all-day safe play. We also used and loved all the provided toys. We will be back!

Excellent Stay!

by Mark on 08/04/2021
A great place for our family of the bride to stay! We enjoyed the proximity to the beach, Hendry's Boathouse, and all the amenities of Santa Barbara.

Thank you!

by The Burke Family on 08/04/2021
We had a wonderful time! Being able to get together and spend time with friends and family is priceless. Beautiful grounds, loved the tennis court! We had a great time celebrating a 50th birthday!

Relaxing Stay!

by Nancy on 08/04/2021
We had a few days of relaxation in this beautiful Oasis. We thank you for your service. We will certainly talk about our time here at Casa Paradiso!

Lovely Time!

by The Lund Family on 08/04/2021
Our family had a lovely time in this beautiful house! The bonfire and tables in the back were wonderful to rest, read, eat and sit together in the picturesque vines and statue of St.Francis to look at. The charmingly decorated dining room, kitchen, and living spaces were very much enjoyed, as well as the jacuzzi and rooftop views. We hope to come back someday soon!

Thanks for a great stay!

by The Purdys on 08/04/2021
We had so much fun playing in the pool and hanging out by the fire pit! A chef dinner at the property was an extra special treat!

Thank you!

by The Johnston Family on 08/04/2021
OMG, thank you so much for sharing your amazing home with us! We were here to celebrate our son's wedding, we live in Austin, but my parents live up the street and cousins live around the corner. WE LOVE THE MESA, Shoreline Park and your house is perfect in every way. Love the large kitchen, dining area, and amazing patio/backyard. Can't wait to come back!

Thank you!

by Mooty Family on 08/04/2021
We enjoyed our stay & are a little sad to leave! Gorgeous home and location, we loved the beach and exploring the town.

Guest Review

by Catherine on 06/16/2021
We stayed at this property for the month of March. First, the good stuff-we picked this property for its location. It is a five-minute walk to fabulous Shoreline Park and beach access, ten minutes to downtown Santa Barbara and five minutes from groceries, restaurants, and amenities in the Mesa area. Access to 101 is only ten minutes away. The house has a hot tub which we used frequently. The house was immaculate when we arrived. The house has good privacy and there is a lovely garden with a water feature in the front of the house. What we didn't like about this house has a strange layout. There is a large kitchen that opens onto a small, dark, and rather uncomfortable living area. There is a long narrow area with a huge dining table and a grand piano with glass doors that opens onto the back patio. This is the only main living space with natural light and, given its layout, was not very usable. There was a small den that got good natural light -my husband used it for his study. The master bedroom on the other hand was huge with two skylights. The skylights didn't have shades, so by 4 AM the room was bright and sleeping was difficult. There is a large backyard patio with a barbeque and hot tub and a small fire pit. . I think that in warmer weather this might make up for the small inside living area However, we were here in the winter and evenings are chilly. We love the Paradise Retreats Company and will use them again. We just didn't find this house to be cozy for a winter stay.

Guest Review

by Diana Catalina on 06/16/2021
We loved our stay here! The place is very clean and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook. We also enjoyed the BBQ and the backyard. It is a convenient location to go to different places in Santa Barbara. I highly recommend it!

Guest Review

by Kevin on 06/16/2021
The space was very clean with comfortable living spaces. Two main bedrooms with two smaller rooms with foldout smaller beds. Great location, just a couple blocks from the beach, and about a 1.5-mile walk to State Street where you will find great wine & dining.

Guest Review

by Sarah on 06/16/2021
Amazing Pacific Ocean views, a very short walk to the beach, a safe neighborhood with amazing nearby restaurants - we loved it! The furnishings are on the older side, but very well maintained and the beds are comfortable and the place was so clean. We will be back!

Guest Review

by Gregoria on 06/16/2021
This was a great property, one of the best we've rented through VRBO. It was clean, comfortable, spacious, and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is well-appointed with everything a cook could need. There is a lovely garden and patio, which my daughter described as “right out of a Nancy Meyers movie”.

by Venkee on 06/16/2021
We were extremely happy with this home rental! Probably one of the nicer vacation rentals we have stayed at, full of any amenity we needed including extra towels, a hot tub, and nice outdoor space, and electric bikes! The location was great too and very central. Would highly recommend it to any of our friends visiting Santa Barbara.

Guest Review

by Geumjoo on 06/16/2021
We all had an amazing stay at this unit. Sparkling clean. I am a very germophobic person, but this unit was very clean. The downstairs living room was very easy to clean with a broom provided while staying. We are a family of 6 with 4 kids. And the grandma tagged along the trip. 7 of us stayed in this unit very comfortably. Upstairs bedrooms very spacious with 2 queen size beds and bathroom in each room. The paradise retreat was very prompt to reply to our questions. All information and local tips are written in the guest book in the unit. A bottle of local wine left for us was very thoughtful! The location of this unit was amazing. Although it was in a quiet location, it was within walking distance or a short drive away to the beach, shops, and restaurants. Highly recommend this unit and the team!!

Guest Review

by Matthew on 06/16/2021
The location is top-notch in terms of state street restaurants and downtown. Lots of good food options. The beachfront is a 12-minute walk away, with many other food options and fun boutiques. The house is on the corner of a cute neighborhood street and a semi-busy road. The busy road is the only thing that doesn't make this a perfect property. We also stayed during a heatwave and there was no AC, it was manageable with the fans. The inside is nicely done and newly renovated, beds are some of the best Airbnb beds I slept on if you like that medium-firm mattress. If you are looking for a great downtown spot, this is it.

Guest Review

We enjoyed staying at Casa Miramar. The house is centrally located and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the gardens and the new hot tub. The home is very clean and had everything we needed for a long weekend.

Guest Review

by Sam on 06/16/2021
We loved this home! It's clean, comfortable, and gorgeous. It's perfectly situated: very close to Butterfly beach, downtown Montecito, and right next to hotels like the Biltmore Santa Barbara and the Rosewood Miramar. The home is spacious - incredible kitchen, incredible backyard (pool & jacuzzi) - with stunning flowers outside. I can't recommend this home highly enough! It's amazing.

Guest Review

by Megan on 06/16/2021
This was our first time in Santa Barbara and I think this Airbnb was such an ideal spot for Santa Barbara. Going west, we were able to walk to the beach in about 15 minutes, and going East, we were able to walk to downtown and the funk zone in about 15 minutes. In addition, this Airbnb seemed newly renovated (I think they accidentally left old cabinets out, but that didn't bother us). The Airbnb also offered a wonderful open space for dining and leisure and we did enjoy the small balcony sitting area. Although the garage was unavailable to this apartment, the driveway offered enough space for us to park our car. The only thing that threw us off was that the smoke alarm did go off a couple of times while we were cooking, but we were able to open the windows and fan out the apartment to have the alarm stop within a few minutes. Also, it wasn't too big of a deal for us (we actually find it a little funny), but I think the circuits for the ceiling fans in the rooms were connected because when we turned one fan on in one room, all the ceiling fans turned out. Overall, it was an excellent stay and we really enjoyed being able to experience Santa Barbara while staying at this Airbnb!

What a great SB Secret Spot - full of positive vibes! We never had the chance to explore the yard but enjoyed all the great comforts, nooks, and crannies of your charming place. We especially enjoyed the library where everyone ended up at the end of the evening - awesome spectrum of great reads!!! This is our 25th boys of SB reunion - we've lost count with all the rich memories, but we'll definitely remember this place. Thanks so much for your hospitality!

Wow! What a gorgeous beach home. The photos are great but this place is even better in person and bigger than expected also. It is a 3 bed, 1.5 baths. This wasn't 100% clear in the description. We stayed with our two toddlers in one room and grandparents in the other with ourselves in the master. Plenty of space for everyone. They have thought of every amenity you might need from beach wagon, tar removal kit, zip lock bags, olive oil & other kitchen necessities, luxurious towels, pack & play crib and to cards, games, and more. The location is literally across the street from the beach. We enjoyed the hot tub and BBQs in the evening. Nobody wanted to leave and we would absolutely book again. You won't regret this place!


by Marcie on 05/24/2021
Your home is beautiful, and very relaxing! The location couldn't be better. Property Management was very responsive when needed. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with our family. We'll be back again!

Amazing stay!

by Nancy on 05/07/2021
We loved staying at Downtown Paradise!! It was such an amazing, cute little property, and we would definitely recommend it to others!

Beautiful Home

by Brooke on 08/30/2020
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Exceptional Location

by Melissa on 08/08/2020
What a beautiful home and exceptional location! We can't wait to return!

Idyllic and Peaceful

by Renee on 08/01/2020
The home was private, as was the beach. The ocean views and sounds could be seen and heard from nearly every location in the house. Our family played games, bbq'd, kayaked, paddle boarded, boogie boarded and played in the sand and the ocean for hours on end. The kids loved it and the adults relaxed. The house was well appointed and the furniture comfortable. Lots of gather spaces for everyone to have their privacy or be together. Thank you and we will definitely book again!

Great Time

by Heidi on 07/31/2020
We spent 7 nights here. We all had a great time! Thank you!

Beautiful Property

by Lilia on 07/31/2020
The house and the grounds are just beautiful! The kitchen is very well stocked. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't there. The yard was well manicured and all the sitting areas were nice and clean. The pool and spa were the perfect temperature when we arrived! The only difficulty we had was that the internet was very slow. We had three people working during the week and it was a challenge. I would go back in a minute!!

Another Great Stay!

by Christine on 07/30/2020
This is our 4th summer staying at Carpinteria Dreamin. The location can’t be beat for our family. The sand is out the front door and the ocean breeze comes through the kitchen window as you clean up from your last meal. The condo fits our family well, and is usually stocked with everything we need. It seems nothing can be hurt at the unit and having young children I’m put at ease without worrying about breakables!


by Lynn on 07/28/2020
Very nice property. Toilet in the pool house was running (just an FYI since I know water is expensive). Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Please change the language regarding deposits. Since you don’t take deposits, there are none to “lose” per much of the language in the onsite documents

It could not have been better

by Susan on 07/26/2020
Our car was loaded with anti viral sprays and wipes, towels, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. Usually when we rent a place, after the first roll of toilet paper we are on our own. With Carona we did not want to take a chance. Happily, our Casita was incredibly stocked with everything that we needed. The ample supply of towels were whitest white and very fluffy. The casita was absolutely clean. There were brand new sponges in packages and plenty of laundry soap, baggies and all the supplies that we needed. We loved the casita and can't wait to go back.

Lovely house, well appointed, easy to use, great location.

by Erik on 07/25/2020
The house has very nice bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and other common areas. Everything is well marked and easy to use. Very comfortable beds. Nice pool. Nice hottub. The yard looks a little ragged when you first pull into the property but that isn't reflective of the overall property. The house is less than five minutes from the great Arroyo Burro beach and the fine restaurant there is open for breakfast lunch and dinner. We had two wonderful meals.

Wonderful Getaway

by Sharon on 07/25/2020
We had a wonderful time away with our family! It was a beautiful, comfortable home with fabulous views from the beautiful deck areas. It was just what we needed during these crazy times!

Great location and house

by Shelly on 07/24/2020
We loved the house. It had everything we needed. The one caviat was when we were looking for the washer and dryer. Thank heavens I thought to read the house instructions or else I would never have found it. The beds were very comfortable and the house really had all the tools you needed to cook and serve meals. We never used the beach chairs but wish we had. I forgot to look prior to heading to the beach. The view from this home is spectacular. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Very Good

by Amanda on 07/22/2020

Very relaxing!

by John on 07/22/2020
My wife and I enjoyed the clean and secure home.We were in the middle of the city and was very convenient for walking about but once we returned we felt very safe to relax enjoy each other’s company. We will definitely come back In our future travel plans!

Beautiful Home!

by Emily on 07/22/2020
We had an amazing week at Holbytla! The house is fully stocked with anything you need for the beach (towels, chairs, umbrellas, coolers), kitchen (pots, pans, knives, every kind of tea, coffee - french press, drip, slow cooker, accessory you can think of) and of course the pool and hot tub are great. There's even an outdoor shower and they provided the necessities to remove the dreaded occasional Santa Barbara beach tar. Minor issues with the outdoor furniture were quickly remedied. Overall great stay and close to a cute beach. We ended up driving to use other beaches, but the one at the bottom of the hill seemed very nice.


by Janice on 07/22/2020
We just spent our 2nd year at Bella Vista for our family reunion. It was the perfect location for all of us to shelter in together. The house had some upgrades from last year, which were very nice. There were tons of fun activities to do at the house, which made our experience exceptional. We've already booked the house for 2021. Many thanks to Paradise Retreats for facilitating our visit and for being mindful of health and safety requirements during Covid19.


by Geordy on 07/22/2020
Beautiful home and wonderful location!

The Perfect Beach Cottage

by Margie on 07/21/2020
A wonderful cottage 1 block from the beach! The cottage is historic having been built in the early 1900s to house Southern Pacific railroad workers. Now it is a wonderful escape updated to Today’s standards including an exceptional kitchen, and top of the line linens in the bedroom. The outdoor patio is the perfect spot to “work from home” during the day and relax by the outdoor fireplace with cocktails in the evening. A quiet, clean and charming get away for two people!

Loved our stay at Sea Change

by Tricia on 07/16/2020
Our family had such a great time at Sea Change. It's the perfect location. It's located right across from the beach, restaurants and grocery stores are close by, and yet has the feel of being secluded. The house is cute and has every amenity you will need on your vacation! Great family vacation home.

We loved it!

by Annouchka on 07/16/2020
Thank you for a wonderful and necessary stay at The Grande Dame! We loved it! Best Regards, Annouchka + David.


by Maureen on 07/15/2020
Location of The Cottage absolutely can’t be beaten. Living space itself is a bit tight for 4 women, mostly when it came to winding down and chat relaxing on the furniture. That would have been more comfortable but besides that little detail the place is fantastic. Lots of other sitting areas to enjoy meals and cocktail hour. You can walk anywhere necessary to a 3 day getaway. Recommended!

Truly heaven on earth!

by Heidi on 07/14/2020
Seahorse Retreat is truly heaven on earth. The location is phenomenal- right on the beach with expansive deck and ocean views, and an easy walk to Carpinteria’s charming downtown. The house is lovely and comfortable. We look forward to our next stay there!

Excellent Stay!

by Lorraine on 07/14/2020
Property so much better than expected! The house had great space for a multiple family gathering. Really like that the kitchen is the hub of the house. The location of the house is hard to beat. Very tranquil and quiet with great hiking trails near by and access to a very secluded beach. The backyard is a great place for morning coffee or drinks at night to talk and view the ocean. We will definitely be back!

Stay 7.2020

by Elise on 07/14/2020
The location of this house is fantastic! I enjoyed morning walks on the beach every day and all that the waterfront has to offer. The management company is attentive and responsive. The downside is that this house needs updates.

Beautiful Beach House

by Jean on 07/13/2020
This house is a lovely place to spend a week at the beach. The house itself is bright, well-furnished and attractive. All the bathrooms are updated and well-appointed as well. Although the bedrooms are small, not large enough to hold a dresser, they are large enough. The only drawback to the house, which is a problem only with very small children who fall often, is that the floors are all stone and the coffee table is glass. On the other hand, the design is well-thought out, and all the furniture is comfortable and thoughtfully arranged. The kitchen is well-stocked with all the necessary pots, pans and appliances. Meals can be taken either inside at the dining table next to the kitchen or outside on the patio. Not only is the house itself wonderful, but the setting can't be equalled. The house has a sandy, beach area overlooking the water with comfortable chaise lounges, and the beach right below is very private and easily accessible. In low tide long walks on the beach are a must!


by Christopher on 07/11/2020
Great job. Very responsive. Professionalism. Great service. Thank you.

Little Slice of Heaven

by Kathy on 07/11/2020
This is our second time staying at this amazing property, it is not only well-appointed in all areas from the beautiful Furnishings to the ironed linen napkins every detail has been thought about, we were so pleased to enjoy not only the beautiful patio and Beach but the comfortable interior of this lovely beach house, so glad we have a chance to experience this magical home we will definitely be back soon, thank you The Greils

Wonderful 4th of July!

by Joyce on 07/09/2020
This is a great property. Fully equipped with anything you could think of. Lay out is great for multiple families. We had 4 couples and no one was on top of each other. Couple of disappointing things, picture make it look like you have direct access to the ocean. You do not. Because we were going to stay at the house and cook there I specifically asked for an extra take of propane for the grill. They left us an empty tank! We were in the middle of cooking 4th of July dinner and ran out of propane. Called and said they would bring a new tank. NO one showed up! Ruined our 4th of July dinner. Other than that everything else was great!

Wonderful stay in clean, well equipped home!

by Daniel on 07/09/2020
Our stay in Downtown Villa was wonderful. Everything was exceptionally cleaned, appliances were new or well maintained, and all items were well stocked. We hope to make our stay there an annual occurrence! Thanks so much 🙂

Very Good

by Christina on 07/08/2020
Thank you so much for your service and help in attempting to deal with the Internet connection issue. It didnt really get solved, but we really appreciated the effort! The master bed was FANTASTIC and the outdoor area was great. We loved the views. 

Great week in Santa Barbara!

by Peter on 07/08/2020
Paradise Retreats did a superb job with our vacation rental in Santa Barbara. All transactions and communications were professional and efficient. The rental property was well-appointed, all amenities, clean, and organized. Location was great!


by Everett on 07/08/2020
An excellent home. The pool was spot-on perfect, outdoor area is great for relaxing with multiple families, as are the sleeping arrangements. Walking distance for a few different things (coffee, liquor, donuts). Short drive to airport/beaches. Exactly where we want to spend our vacation time.

OMG beyond my most wonderful dreams! Thank you.

by Diane on 07/06/2020
Paradise Team, absolutely magnificent! Every detail of your services have been above my wildest dreams. Your kind and professional staff. The concierge service that bought my groceries and stocked my fridge prior to my arrival, to the owners putting love into every detail of this exquisite home. The fireplace became my television , the serenade of the frogs every evening from 8 pm -10:30, and OMG... the kitchen was my dream kitchen . The bed was so comfortable and the skylight over the bed was such a treat.My words merely scratch the surface of the depth of my love and gratitude for every second I was there. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Incredible outdoor area

by Nina J. on 07/04/2020
The view is acceptional! Hard to look away. The two great beds, showers were awesome. Outdoor kitchen was a hit! About 4 minutes to town, a bit difficult to locate at first. Follow directions to a T. We brought cornhole to play on the patio, it was the best! Thank you Paradise Resorts, we will be staying again!

Great stay at Cityscape

by Leah on 07/03/2020
Perfectly located steps away from State Street and Santa Barbara’s best restaurants. Quiet and beautiful views of the Mesa and the mountains. Highly recommended

Great Time!

by Alexandria on 07/01/2020
We had a great time. Thank you for everything. It was a great experience, super seamless, fabulous house!


by Cheryl on 07/01/2020
This house is well appointed and the location is perfect for State Street and surrounding areas. The house had an abundance of towels, cleaning supplies, and kitchen tools. The only thing we could not find was a potato masher for the guacamole. We all enjoyed the backyard. It is a great place to sit, barbecue, and play cornhole. In the later hours we used the living room which has plenty of seating. The four dedicated parking spots are so convenient for unloading. I have highly recommended this house to several friends. GREAT PLACE.

Great family house

by Jan on 06/26/2020
We had a great experience with Paradise Rentals. The house in Goleta was perfect for our family gathering with lots of rooms, outdoor spaces, and close proximity to walking trails and the ocean. The house has all the amenities and is clean and nicely furnished. Working with Paradise Rentals was easy and efficient. We hope to be back in the Santa Barbara area again soon.

A Perfect Stay

by Jed on 06/26/2020
Exceeded in every way. Incredible location. Tons of space. All of the rooms were comfortable, and all of the bathrooms were spacious, well stocked, etc. All the amenities you could ever want. And if anything went wrong, the prop manager is on site asap taking care of it. But the best part was, it is just such a fun property. So much to do, you really never need to leave the house. But when you want to, bikes are ready, surf boards are ready, etc. We had 2 families stay, but you could easily fit 3. The kids were in heaven. We plan to stay there again and again.

Riviera Canyon Review

by Arjun on 06/24/2020
We had an amazing stay. The place was very spacious and a beautiful vacation home. Location is great too. We really enjoyed it and I would definitely stay there again next time we're in Santa Barbara. Only wish would be for the checkout to be more flexible. A hard 10am checkout forced us to leave earlier. If it was instead 12pm or 1pm, that would've been great. If that is not possible, than even an option of leaving our bags somewhere like in the garage would have been really nice so we could still explore Santa Barabara. I wouldn't mind paying slightly extra for this. Besides all that, stay was wonderful! 🙂


by Jerod on 06/24/2020
Excellent house. Great service.

Bella Vista

by Brett on 06/22/2020
We had an incredible time at this one-of-a-kind property. The view, heated pool, fire pit, pizza oven, and experience was remarkable. Thanks for everything and the opportunity to stay at this home.

Villa Ballena

by Darya on 06/20/2020
We had a wonderful stay at the very lovely Villa Ballena. The house is a real home, comfortable and included every comfort. The kitchen was outfitted for a real cook, which we appreciated as we prepared food at home mostly due to the virus. We loved the ocean view patio, and spent hours looking at the gorgeous view. The kids enjoyed the pool and the walk down to the amazing very private beach. We hope to be back to Villa Ballena. The house was very clean and we were so grateful for that attention to making the house spotless.

Great stay in Santa Barbara

by Melinda on 06/17/2020
We spent a week at this lovely cottage with our daughter. The location is top notch. We parked our car and either walked or rode our bikes everywhere. The cottage was very comfortable. The beds and linens were lovely. The kitchen is small so if gourmet cooking is your thing you might want to look elsewhere. We had a few issues - master bedroom fan was broken and we had consistent challenges with the satellite tv connection. We also never found the espresso machine which was advertised. The leasing company was very responsive to our concerns.

Spectacular property, perfect for families with in-laws

by Stewart on 06/17/2020
Shadowbrook is its own little oasis nestled in Montecito. The layout was perfect for our family + grandparents visiting. We enjoyed the pool and outdoor living space/grass, the grounds are meticulously kept, and we cooked many meals in the well equipped kitchen. The house layout was perfect. There were a couple issues upon arrival with the property not being ready or issues that required maintenance (pool cleaning, hot water heater), but the Paradise Retreats team worked diligently to resolve them with good customer service. Overall, we would definitely return to Shadowbrook for our next trip. It's a wonderful escape where you'd be happy to spend a week and never leave.


by Wendy on 06/16/2020
A fabulous beachside home with all the amenities! We'll rent this home again.

170 Rincon Point Road

by Heather on 06/12/2020
Great experience! Carol was wonderful about contacting me for check in shortly after we landed in SB. She shared all important details about the home and was wonderful to talk to. The house was extraordinary and we had an amazing time. We hope to return very soon, thank you so much! The Downey Family


by Monica on 06/11/2020
We had an amazing time in this magical place. The location was ideal. There were so many great things nearby. The beach there is beautiful as are all the trails. Everything was great. Staying next to the creek was also really special.

Nice and peaceful long weekned!

by Angelica on 06/11/2020
This was a family long-weekend trip. The location is very private and you have a view of nature from every window of the house. The house itself is very comfortable with many high-end touches. You can choose to cook yourself, the kitchen is well equipped; or you can buy the food at the Rancho Market in town, which has a lot of local products as well as prepared food to go. We really enjoy the hospitality of the people. Although the internet connection was slow, my son was able to have a zoom meeting. My only complaint was the TV, which we were not able to quite figure out. However, since one of the purposes of the trip was to "disconnect", I think this is just a minor thing that should be fixed easily. The tennis court and basketball hoop were a big hit with the kids. We rented some bikes and it was definitely worth it. I would recommend trimming the greenery surrounding the fire pit area as an added precaution during windy days. I will certainly consider this place again for future vacations. And if the internet connection gets an update, I may even consider a longer stay and telework from there. The vineyard landscape is breathtaking!!!

Lovely and accommodating

by Laura on 06/10/2020
We absolutely loved our month-long stay at Rancho Vista. The company were so great to work with and very prompt responding to our (multiple) requests and inquiries. The property itself was absolutely perfect with gorgeous views and all the amenities we could need. We are already planning on coming back!

Best rental ever

by Al on 06/10/2020
We've started there twice and both times provided an excellent family experience. The pictures really don't do it justice.

Beautiful home, beautiful location, very memorable stay

by Rachel on 06/09/2020
We were lucky enough to book this cottage for a month! We had such an amazing time. Restaurants were just starting to open up again ( post covid) and the neighborhood and Neigbors are just delightful. Such a special community. Highlights are: the one block walk to the ocean. The secret flower filled walk to the surf beach ( walk to water, take a right after parking lot down dirt path) and of course beautiful Miramar, with their amazing sand service, food truck, and to- go margarittas. The home is fully equipped and we had many beautiful lunches and dinners on the back patio overlooking the river.


by Rick on 06/04/2020
Enjoyed our stay. Excellent accommodations, very clean. Comforts of hime.

Wonderful weekend getaway

by Suzanne on 05/31/2020
We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children and had a wonderful long weekend at Tierra Fina. We loved the clean simple but stylish interiors and spent hours in the pool, hot tub, and yard playing corn hole. It was an easy walk to the beach and shoreline park. Lovely home and we look forward to returning!

Villa Blanca

by Lucy on 05/30/2020
We had a wonderful stay at Villa Blanca. The property was every bit as gorgeous as the pictures led us to believe: location was perfect, views in both directions stunning, layout was ideal and we had plenty of space to be together and to work separately as needed. The house was incredibly well positioned for both town and hiking and nowhere was more than a 5min drive. Will definitely return.

Harbor Retreat

by Frank on 05/29/2020
We recently stayed at this property over Memorial Day weekend. It is in an excellent location near the water as well as downtown Santa Barbara. It is a very stylish and well-appointed property that made our stay very comfortable.

Charm & Relaxation for our Babymoon in Montecito

by Julianne on 05/28/2020
We absolutely loved our stay at the Seaside Cottage in Montecito. It was perfect for one final trip as a couple before our baby arrives. The cottage was quiet, charming, and well-equip with everything you could possibly need while away. We cooked dinner, walked to the beach, and enjoyed the nearby restaurants: The Honor Bar and Jeannine's Bakery. The location was perfect. We have already recommended to friends and plan to be back soon.

We Loved It!

by Annouchka on 05/25/2020
Thank you for a wonderful and necessary stay at The Grande Dame! We loved it!

Wonderful family stay

by Becky on 05/22/2020
We celebrated two family birthdays and it was a wonderful stay. The pool was delightful with plenty of pool toys and the property was beautiful with an ocean view...we enjoyed gathering around the fire pit every night. It was excellent!!


by Henry on 05/20/2020
The little yellow cottage at Miramar Beach was great location and a good size for a family of four/our Kids and Grandkids. Since we live about 10 minutes away it was easy to visit them for afternoons/evenings. You may want to add to the file that they do have an outside shower and direct access to the beach from the side of the house. We were also told that the only access to the house was down the long wooden walkway. On the other side ~The house is just 2 doors in from the the beach access lot which was a lot more convenient to use. (we were told otherwise).

Ballard Canyon Ranch

by Cora on 05/16/2020
The property: Gorgeous, peaceful, secluded. It was all we hoped it would be. We enjoyed sitting in the front yard taking in the view and found ourselves in the backyard far less. Meals on the front porch with that view were lovely, and relaxing in the swing was a dream. One thing to consider - this is a "working ranch" and on one of our days, there were workers in the vineyard. I recalled reading about this in the contract but was surprised to see how close to the house they were. Their cars were parked maybe 100 yards from the house; they were easily able to look up to the house as we were sunning in the front yard, and we were able to hear them when they were at their cars. I found it to be a little invasive feeling, but thankfully they were only there on one day. The house: We enjoyed being able to look out the windows from the living spaces and seeing the sweeping views. The house is nice with some nice touches (a bottle of wine from a local vineyard as a welcome gift was a nice touch!). The beds are very soft (almost too soft) with very nice sheets. The living space is quite small – the size of a small apartment – which was surprising. The bedrooms are all large, so most of the house is bedrooms. There are two rooms that can serve as master bedrooms which is nice when you’re traveling with another couple. There are two upstairs bedrooms – one small bedroom, and a master bedroom which is a loft style with no door, which was not clear in the property description. The upstairs master shares a bathroom with the smaller bedroom. (The downstairs master has an en suite bathroom.) Several disappointments about the house that are worth sharing: a) The towels in each of the bathrooms were pretty dingy and really need to be replaced (white towels with that grey dingy look and feel) Please replace those, Paradise Rentals! This was the case with most of the towels in the house. b) The kitchen is not well stocked at all. The basics are there, but if you plan on doing some real cooking, consider what you make need to bring from home. The knives were dangerously dull. c) The TV was just about impossible to use. The batteries were dead in several of the remotes and there was no Netflix or other streaming devices. There were a few Disney DVDs at the house which worked for our toddler, but movie night was out of the question which was disappointing. d) This is just a picky comment, but the house would benefit from some sort of hookup to speakers to play music! Thankfully we brought our own speakers, otherwise we’d have been without music. The rental agency: Very helpful and responsive leading up to the trip and helpful resolving an issue after the trip. Sadly, during the trip we had an issue that needed addressing and their response left much to be desired. We discovered on our first evening there that there was no hot water. The office told us that they “tried,” but were not able to get anyone to address it until the next day – which happened to be Mother’s Day, and the entire purpose of our trip, and which would have left us without the ability to shower or wash our hands for a solid 18 hours. It was only after several calls and us finally telling them it was unacceptable and becoming insistent, that they were able to find a plumber to address the issue the same evening. After the trip was over, we expressed our frustration to the director of client relations - she was very kind, helpful, and addressed our concerns to our satisfaction. In all, we look forward to returning some day and would definitely recommend to our friends.


by Erica on 05/14/2020
One of the cleanest & well stocked homes we have ever rented (in 20+ years of renting homes all over the country). Great experience & I will seek your company our next time we are in SB.

Couldn't Have Been Better!!

by Barbara on 05/11/2020
We were in this beautiful home when CA and most of the country went into "shelter in place". Our home is in Chicago. We decided it was better to stay in SB, if possible, during this time. The owners were gracious enough to allow us to extend our stay, and we could not have been in a more serene and comfortable place. We are also grateful for the support of the Paradise Retreat staff during our stay. Maison Blanche will always be special to us. Thank you!!!!

Weekend in Paradise

by Mark on 05/07/2020
The experience from start to finish was wonderful. The check-in process via-telephone (due to Covid) went smoothly and we were settled in in no time. The property is clean, lush and overall breathtaking. It had every amenity we could have ever wanted. Only con: The 10 o'clock check out requirement was entirely too early. Thanks to Paradise for a memorable experience for our family.


by Aaron on 05/07/2020
Everything about the Bella Vista was amazing. 

Beautiful True Santa Barbara Setting!

by Jeffrey on 05/07/2020
Gorgeous property that is indicative of the Santa Barbara lifestyle. A charming home that is quant and modern at the same time. Every room has a special something, a spectacular view, elegant furnishings and the comfort of a retreat.


by Cristina on 05/06/2020
We absolutely loved our stay !! Worth every dollar and sooooooo relaxing !! All the comforts of our own home !!

An extended stay in the Paradise of the Pacific

by Peter on 05/05/2020
My wife and I extended our annual stay at Seashell Cottage from two months to three this winter/spring....enticed by the lure of a nest that might perfectly provide a safe and welcoming environment for a while longer before returning to the demands of addressing the current COVID19 pandemic response on the East Coast and our home. As ever, the cottage was small but welcoming oasis - where we felt good - near the beach, with the sound of the creek rushing behind the house, easy access to the community and just a perfect quiet neighborhood for us to just slow down and assess future plans for family, friends and adventure.


by Robert on 05/04/2020
Outstanding support from P R contributes to a wonderful experience in S B

Amazing family getaway

by Al on 04/30/2020
The pictures and description don't do this place justice.

Some great, some not so great

by Kevin on 04/29/2020
The property the home is on is lush and gorgeous and the views are fantastic. The access to the beach is not directly from the property as the description seems to indicate (or fail to mention) but it is just a short 4 houses away to the steps down to the private beach. We didn't mind at all, but if you have kids you should know that it is a clothing optional beach down there and there were many people taking advantage of the "optional" part. The home itself is dated and from the 80's/ 90's but well equipped. the pool is not on the ocean side of the house, but rather in the "front". It's a nice pool and the foliage around it is lush. The More Mesa hiking loop is right next door so that is really nice perk of the home. There is construction going on right next door so at 8am be read for some banging....another thing that wasn't mentioned in the description. That won't last forever, but I'd imagine it will be another 9 months. All in all, it was a nice getaway for a few days but wish the house was a bit more updated and fresh. The grounds and views are stunning and location is wonderful.


by Renee on 04/22/2020
Our stay at Bella Vista EXCEEDED all our expectations! The homes were lovely, well maintained, decorated wonderfully and had EVERYTHING anyone could want and more. The kids were so entertained the entire time, we hardly saw them! The property has a working farm, gardens, veggie gardens, tennis, basketball, bocci, bat mitten, shuffleboard and more. The owners are lovely and the property literally looks like a movie set. You will not be disappointed! We can not wait to go back!!

Sea Ranch

by Tim on 04/22/2020
Paradise Retreats and Sea Ranch did not disappoint. Incredible property and service. We will back soon! Thank you

Amazing View

by Christopher on 04/02/2020
It's hard to find a better view then this one. Also very close to services

Great little retreat

Villas Blanca was a great little retreat in Monticeto. The views were lovely and the location was convenient.

Very Good

The maintenance people were outstanding. We will be back


by James on 03/22/2020
My wife and I have rented units from Paradise Retreats at least once a year for the past 12 years. Downtown Villa was just terrific. The Grunzweig’s

Fabulous time at Los Olivos Cottage!

by Melinda on 03/19/2020
We had a fabulous time at Los Olivos Cottage! It was beautifully furnished and impeccably clean, with wonderful beds and bedding, a fabulouslly provisioned kitchen and charming back yard! We have stayed in many vacation rentals but this right at the top! It was so convenient to the downtown shops and restaurants and perfect for our family birthday weekend! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us! The Wainwright Family


by Barbara on 03/19/2020
This was our second stay in this lovely home and we again, loved our stay! The home is well appointed, well maintained, and with an expansive view of the ocean. Paradise Retreat staff was also very responsive to any question or small maintenance request, which was much appreciated. Thank you for sharing your home with us!


by Julie on 03/18/2020
I had to share a review on both the beach house and the team at Paradise Retreats. The team at Paradise Retreats is wonderful. You feel like they are part of your own personal travel team. They will be my first call when I travel again. The Montecito Beach House is wonderful. A slice of Heaven. The 2 stories of balcony and also inside give you alot of room to enjoy. The location was truly amazing. Thank you!!!

Great place to stay!

by Kim on 03/16/2020
Comfortable and well kept place with everything needed for a great time.

great stay - thank you

by Robert on 03/10/2020
wonderful house - everything was great. thank you!

Perfect location

by Jacqueline on 03/07/2020
This house accommodated a large group of women. Quiet, beautiful location with easy access from airport and all sites we visited. Very clean and kitchen was well equipped. Property management answered all questions and were very helpful.

Great place for a reunion

by Katharine on 03/04/2020
We just got back from staying at this lovely place in Santa Barbara. A group of 12 friends gathered here for a UCSB Environmental Studies Program 50th Anniversary celebration. The house gave us so much space to be together with so many outdoor amenities. The pool house was a surprise addition for us. While I studied the house info, the separate pool house building was not clearly outlined. It was a great space with a full bath and inside gathering for our large group when the evenings got too cool. The house was very clean and well appointed. The beds were very comfortable and the linens were soft and luxurious. We would definitely return to this place for a large group reunion.

Summerland Beach Retreat

by Katie on 03/04/2020
We had a wonderful time and loved the property....can't beat the view! It was great for our group of 7 ladies....everything we needed was there. The check in process was very smooth and Benjamin greeted us and answered all my questions. The only downside was the plumbing on the lower level. The septic/pump stuck and backed up with a very unpleasant smell....however with that said I called the management and Enrique showed up in 25 minutes and fixed it and cloroxed the smell away! When we came back from dinner all was well! We would definitely stay there again!


by Connie on 02/29/2020
We enjoyed our time here while visiting our daughter at UCSB. Was the perfect location...

Beautiful Sanctuary

by Kathy on 02/28/2020
Our family gathered together at this incredible home to share time and honor our loved one during the memorial. The location, views to the sea and attention to every detail, made our stay comforting and tranquil. Dolphins, seals, and a whale were viewed from the luxury of comfortable deck chairs. It was a perfect arrangement. We will be back.


by Carolyn on 02/21/2020
This property is outstanding! We didn’t want to leave. Our 15 yr. old grandson simply wanted to stay on the property full time. Can’t say enough about all the activities available.

Awesome property and amazing service

by David on 02/21/2020
The house was beautiful, clean amd really comfortable. Staff at paradise retreats were really helpful. Can't wait to visit again!

Beautiful home, beautiful views!

by Allison on 02/20/2020
Wow, this home really shows pride of ownership! Everything is very well kept & clean, along with helpful labeling on cabinets, closets, switches and a well laid out guest info book. We couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you!

Beautiful Escape

by Susan on 02/17/2020
The property is beautiful both inside and out. Our family enjoyed a weeks stay at this bucolic space. As other reviewers have said it is a difficult choice to leave the property there is so much to do and if relaxation is what you yearn for there are a multitude of areas for quiet and contemplation. The house and grounds are both very clean. The beds comfortable and the bathrooms well stocked with towels. As others have said the kitchen is well equipped and there is plenty of firewood for use both inside and out. We definitely plan to return soon. The management company Paradise Retreats was very nice to work with. This is our second rental with them in the Santa Barbara area.

Amazing location

by Kayley on 02/17/2020
My only complaints would be that 1). the cottage is a little more worn than the pictures depict and 2). I would recommend getting new couch pillows as there was black hair covering two of the pillows. Overall this rental was AMAZING! The location could not have been better - a block from the beach and a block from all the restaurants and shops. Comfortable cottage where we were able to cook meals and enjoy the indoor outdoor feel! The property management company was helpful and responsive.


by Karen on 02/15/2020
Beautiful home, well appointed and right on the water. We saw seals and dolphins and enjoyed the surfers. Outdoor shower was a hit.


by Robert on 02/14/2020
The house was very comfortable with a great view of the ocean.

Lovely stay!

by Sara on 02/12/2020
Beautiful home, excellent location! Thank you for a wonderful time. We will be back.

The Best

by Donald on 02/05/2020
If the description of the property meets your needs, you won't be disappointed. The location was perfect for us and we found that most everything that we wanted to see or do was within walking distance.

A special gem!

by Whitney on 02/01/2020
This special home exceeded our expectations. Each year our group of ladies meet in Santa Barbara for a weekend retreat together and have stayed at many places around the area. This home is truly a special gem that we can't wait to book again for next year. Every detail is thoughtfully done to make this a welcoming and easy rental. The location is beautiful with the loud waves and walkable beach. Paradise Retreats was a delight and easy to work with and the details for how to take of the home were well thought out and easy to follow.

Super experience

by Stacey on 01/27/2020
Great house for a reunion of friends. Lots of room to spread out but living room and kitchen great gathering places. Perfect location.

Beautiful Rental Home!

by Kristina on 01/23/2020
We loved our time at this property. The kitchens were excellent, the backyard was amazing and there were activities for all age groups. Highly recommend.

Perfect Vacation Rental

by Cheryl on 01/22/2020
Our daughter’s wedding was held at the Belmond Encanto and this was the perfect location to feel accessible to this special weekend. The views were magnificent and the cooking accommodations made it easy to relax at home with some of our extended family between events. I was surprised how easy it was to get downtown and to Trader Joe’s to grab that last minute grocery item. Everything was done with quality in mind. So glad we stayed here rather then the beach choices we were comparing to when making our final decision. Best retreat for choice our special occasion.

Our Stay Was Perfect!

by Joanna on 01/21/2020
Thank you for sharing your beautiful house. Our stay was perfect!! it was a wonderful way to celebrate an amazing milestone.

The Views Can't Be Beat!

by Aubrey on 01/21/2020
Thank you for a wonderful stay! Your home is lovely and the views cant be beat! We will be back!


by Julie on 01/20/2020
fabulous. Enjoyed every minute. Felt so much like home i started to go get the mail! great location- Just a couple of notes to look into- I called the service number to let them know the heater in the bedroom was not working, ice maker creating a big solid block, and I could not figure out the vent on the stove. Set off fire alarm twice and stopped using. None of the above was a deterrent to my enjoyment of my stay. It is a beautiful little home with everything anyone would need. Tried to rebook for end of January but not available. Would try again on another work trip to Montecito.

Paradise in Santa Barbara!

by Danielle on 01/19/2020
Thank you for allowing to stay in your magnificent beach retreat! We loved the “resort” style furnishings and linens, the MOST comfortable beds, the beautiful sounds of the ocean and the lovely sunsets! The kitchenette had all the amenities we needed including the Nespresso machine.

Another great stay at this wonderful property!

by Dinah on 01/17/2020
We stayed last year at this same time of year for our girls trip. Because it was such a wonderful stay we decided to make it a yearly trip to this house. We came back again for our January 2020 trip and it was just as fabulous the second time around. Its such a wonderful layout for a large group who appreciates having space. All the beds are comfortable and with our group of all women we really love how each set of bedrooms has their own bathroom. Its perfect for when everyone is needing to get ready at the same time. We always do a fun game in the pool room to kick off the trip and cook a large family style meal in the back house kitchen together one night. Once again, two years in a row and everyone just loved it again the second time around. Cant go wrong renting this estate!!! Thanks again to Paradise Retreats for being easy to communicate with. Your the best!

Relaxing time in Santa Barbara

by Steve on 01/16/2020
We loved staying here with our family. The home is very spacious and well appointed. Everything you needed was there. We cooked all our meals and the remodeled kitchen was wonderful with a large dining table able to accommodate all of us. The location of the prop is especially attractive being next to the Preserve and has a beautiful ocean view from the back patio. We spent a lot of time there. The beach is very accessible, across the street, down the stairs. All in all, we had a great time and loved the place!

Fab home away from home

by Linda on 01/14/2020
Well equipped. Quiet, convenient location. Landscaping you wish you had at your house.

Wonderful property

by Kirsten on 01/13/2020
We loved staying at this property in Santa Barbara - it is a lovely spacious house with great outdoor space! we especially enjoyed the pool and spa. We also enjoyed being able to walk to the beach, nearby organic grocery store, café and shops. I would highly recommend this property for a relaxing break (the beds were very comfy too!).

Wonderful Stay in Downtown Santa Barbara

by Ffion on 01/09/2020
Highly recommend both this beautiful, unique property and Paradise Retreats! The location was perfect for a holiday with a toddler, walking distance from parks, shops, restaurants. The facilities in the house were perfect, we had everything we needed. Beds were extremely comfortable and the Christmas decorations were a lovely surprise! We rented another property, Paradise Views, with Paradise Retreats during the same break, and were equally as impressed there. Everything went very smoothly and the properties were exactly as described. We'll definitely be back!

Mesa Property!

by Yanoula on 01/07/2020
The property on the Mesa that we rented was immaculate, gorgeous, just as advertised with no surprises, and interactions with Paradise Rentals were always easy and prompt. Thanks so much and we'll be back!!

Perfect beach rental for two families!

by Megan on 01/07/2020
This was a wonderful beach rental! The owners definitely care about the renters having a comfortable and easy experience. The bedding and pillows were lovely and very comfortable. There was an abundance of kitchen supplies, which made it so easy to start enjoying the trip right away. The layout is so helpful. We were two families with small kids. In this duplex, we’d set the kids up on one side for dinner and a movie, while the grownups enjoyed wine and dinner on the other side. Our kids loved the book nook that was stocked with plenty of children’s and adult books. Lots of board games available too! Waking up in the morning on the top floor is so great because you can see over the dune the the ocean. Being right on the beach was so fun. The kids enjoyed using the boogie boards (that are stored in the outdoor closet) to slide down the dune for hours and hours each day. Even the parking was perfect. I’m thrilled with this place and will absolutely be coming back if it’s available!


by Mark on 01/07/2020
One of the nicest properties for location and amenities! Very impressed with how clean and stocked the house was. Also, one of the nicest decorated properties we have ever stayed. Five Stars!

The place that lies up to its name!

by Valerie on 01/07/2020
This was my 2nd visit to Bella Vista and I would go back in a heart beat. There were 12 of us-ranging in age from 19-75; a family reunion. We cooked in every night. We sat around the dining room table and talked. We interacted, played games, made pizza, sat around the fire pit and just enjoyed everything about this wonderful property. You can't go wrong!

Magical Time

by Frank on 01/06/2020
We had a magical time here. What a perfect location to close out a decade! We will definitely be back!


by Andrew on 01/06/2020
Everything one might need for an awesome gathering! We stayed for NYE and had a great "family style" dinner with our close friends (a larger group). House had everything you would need to grill out and have a big dinner at a long table. We played games, enjoyed the two fireplaces and the beds were super comfortable. Also stocked with more than enough towels too! We'd absolutely stay again

Can't Wait To Come Back!

by Jill on 01/06/2020
I just spent 3 glorious days at Montecito Beach Retreat and it was amazing. It is one block off the beach, and not just any beach. This is a beautiful beach for both enjoying the water, and sand, and the sunsets are magnificent. The house easily accommodated 8 adults and has all the comforts of home. Multiple fireplaces inside and out, a nice deep hot tub, glorious bed linens and towels, kitchen well stocked, and all amenities well thought through, made the experience luxurious and comfortable for all. After running the beach we rented bikes and road along the coast to State Street for a great lunch and some window shopping. Lots to enjoy here, even in January. I can’t wait to come back!

Exceeded Expectations

by Kolby on 01/04/2020
The pictures and description of the home don’t do it justice, what a beautiful property. Both the property, views, and home itself are pristine. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the appointments and interior design/decoration of the home. It was well stocked with everything you would need. The fire pit out back was a joy in the evenings. The views from all areas inside and outside of the home are breathtaking. Lastly, the home is perfectly located between Buelton, Solvang, and the wineries, so while we felt very remote, we were anywhere within 5-10 mins. The master does not have a door as it is situated in a loft type setting (due to the beautiful architecture of the ceiling), but we didn’t find this to be an issue at all, both from a privacy and noise perspective. And we’re picky travelers. There are dividing doors upstairs between the two bedrooms and downstairs between the living room and bedrooms, which helped with privacy and noise a lot. We traveled as two adult couples with each of our 15 & 18 month old daughters and it was perfect. We can’t wait to return and hope to enjoy this home again in the future!

Hard To Beat!

by Pam on 01/04/2020
What an amazing property! I’m from the Bay Area and really enjoyed the proximity to the beach and downtown. Hard to beat!! We stayed in the North Montecito Beach Retreat, which we found very clean and surprisingly quiet. The twin beds were quite comfortable. I am a light sleeper and had a great night’s sleep. I especially enjoyed the framed album covers and music decor throughout. The grounds reminded of a 5 star resort, so well manicured and zen, with places to relax and meditate. One day we rode bikes along the bike path and explored SB. Great restaurants with outdoor seating and unforgettable food. I will definitely recommend this property to only good friends because I’m afraid it will get overly booked and discovered! We will be back!!

Great Weekend!

by Megan on 01/02/2020
Bright sunny days, orange & pink sunsets, sandy fun! Great weekend. Families + Sunshine + Carpinteria = FUN!


by Louise on 01/02/2020
The cottage is best rented as both parts as the other renters can easily be heard. That’s the only problem with this cottage. Other than that its well looked after, very clean and convenient for the beach and the Rosewood Miramar. It is very efficiently run.

Paradise It Was

by Kristina on 01/01/2020
Our stay in Santa Barbara was magical - the house was exactly as we expected. Great location, comfortable spaces, beautiful appointments inside and out. Our family made many wonderful memories here.


by Scott on 12/31/2019
Perfect spot. Great house. The hot tub was a hit for a very picky 14 year old. I will definitely rent this place again.


by Suzanne on 12/31/2019
Great beach getaway! Easy walk to the beach, funk zone & shuttle up State Street. House is light and bright and well equipped with everything you need.

Perfect Getaway

by Gary on 12/29/2019
This charming cottage was the perfect place for a holiday getaway. The house is charming. The back garden is a quiet oasis with the fireplace and fountain And when we decided to stay in and cook, the kitchen was a cook's dream. The location was very convient to both downtown and the few blocks to the beach. The skylights are a wonderful addition. Even on a grey day the house was filled with light.

Seaside dream

by David on 12/25/2019
Quite a beach house! Spectacular views, really good home with many amenities. It’s on a world famous surfing beach and great access to beach and bluff trails. Check it out!

A Great Place To Stay

by Dennis on 12/22/2019
We are doing a major remodel in Montecito and while visiting, we had some extra time. So, we decided to rent nearby and close to beach . The location was perfect and we walked to the beach and lower village . The house is secluded and tastefully done with a great private jacuzzi. Bringing family next visit, as we have found a great place to stay while we finish our remodel.

December 2019 Stay at Sea Glass Cottage

by David on 12/20/2019
Wonderful spot!

Thanksgiving Event

by Peter on 12/16/2019
The location and attributes of Los Arboles Ranch could not have been better for our extended family. Plus the attentiveness of the Paradise Retreats staff was terrific.


by Don on 12/15/2019
Wonderful spot...

Absolutely Incredible!

by Haily on 12/14/2019
Our vacation in Montecito was absolutely incredible, thanks to our lovely beach stay! Impeccably clean, perfect location, and comfortable beds! We looked forward to making our espressos in the morning (accommodated by the host) and walking along Butterfly Beach. We spent most of our time lounging at the beach and the short two minute walk back to the loft made it easy in case anyone forgot anything! Walking distance to delectable restaurants and shops in Montecito via the freeway underpass just a street away. I highly recommend Bree’osh Bakery for breakfast and Lucky’s for dinner! My family felt right at home here and even wished we had as comfortable of a couch at home! We can’t wait to stay here again on our next vacation!

Outstanding !

by Jessica on 12/13/2019
My family & I truly enjoyed our vacation in your beautiful home. The house was warm & inviting , and the views were bar none ! Thank you and hope to be back sometime soon !!


by Sam on 12/07/2019
My stay at this house (1 week) was exceptional. The beds were comfortable, the furnishing was elegant, and the location was optimal. It's practically beachside (3 minute walk to butterfly beach), and after a swim at the beach it was nice to be able to go into the hot tub...which has it's own waterfall!

comfortable home

by Tasha on 12/04/2019
lovely yard, comfortable home

Downtown Villa - Santa Barbara

by Rob on 12/04/2019
This is our second year staying at the Downtown Villa during the week of Thanksgiving. The location is excellent and within walking distance of all of the downtown and Funk Zone restaurants. The home is decorated beautifully and extremely clean and comfortable. Highly recommend this home for your Santa Barbara stay.

Sea Ranch

by Priscilla on 12/04/2019
An amazing property within walking distance of the beach, Biltmore and Coast Village Rd. A wonderful vacation for all ages with orchards, pool and hot tub, outdoor cooking kitchen, inground trampoline, bikes, ping pong, games, books and more. You never have to leave the property. Easily sleeps 12. Many spaces to congregate: 4 fire pits, large table under heat lamps, living room, TV room and a well equipped kitchen for all to help with a Thanksgiving meal.

Authentic Adobe in an Enchanting Setting

by Sally on 12/03/2019
We enjoyed our Thanksgiving week at Cricket Adobe. Besides cozying up by the fire to read and relax, we loved the view of the mountains from the living room and walking in the neighborhood. Our 6 year old daughter loved playing with the toys on site and the house is very conveniently located a few minutes drive from the restaurants and shops in Montecito. The house could be in a movie it is so authentic and charming.

Perfect Place for Our Family Holiday

by Maggie on 12/03/2019
This house was perfect for our family's Thanksgiving holiday! Our meal was held at a family member's house within walking distance, so the location could not have been better. The kitchen was fully stocked with kitchen tools, servingware, etc. to split the cooking responsibilities between the two houses. We all had space to sit, chat, and enjoy each other. Great house thank you!

Very Good

by Buddy on 11/26/2019
Our stay at Harbor Retreat went very well. The location, style and comfort of the house was great. We enjoyed our stay.

You Will Love This Place!

by Grant on 11/25/2019
YOU WILL LOVE THIS PLACE! We stayed for 2 weeks and had a fabulous time! The location is perfect - 5 min walk to the Biltmore Four Seasons for a great brunch; 3 min walk to Butterfly Beach for a run or romantic sunset walk or a 5 min walk through the tunnel to the boutiques and any kind of cuisine! The beach house was beautifully done, exceptionally clean, had robes, wine glasses, and espresso machine! We were able to walk our surf boards and kayaks right out to the beach. We were never disappointed but ecstatic - how can one not LOVE the beach?

You Will Love It!

by Spencer on 11/25/2019
I visited this Montecito Beach house for a couple of weeks and had an amazing time. It’s steps away from butterfly beach with spectacular sunsets, long walks, dolphin and seal watching. It had a private-like 5 minute pathway to Coast Village Road with many good coffee shops, boutiques and restaurants. It had a beautiful hot tub with a waterfall and lighted outdoor trellis and fireplace. The other side of the sunroom had an outdoor fire pit for roasting marshmallows and enjoying champagne. Spectacular indoor/outdoor living with biking, kayaking and surfing outside your door. I would rent here again and you will love it!


by Edith on 11/19/2019
The location was very convenient. Lots of activities in the area. Even got a chance to go to Chumash Casino. The views are beautiful, and it is a very rustic feeling. My only suggestion is new Couch,InLiving roomAndAlsoOutdoorFurniture could be better. The entire property was clean and maintained very well. House was also maintained well, with all the amenities you can think of to cook whatever you could bring. Great place for family weekend outing.

Home Was Awesome & Perfect.

by Rosemary on 11/17/2019
Six ladies on a girls retreat. We couldn't have asked for better. The home was awesome and perfect. We will come back. Thank you!

Highly Recommend

by Tyler on 11/16/2019
Our stay was nothing short of incredible. Starting with location, we were a stone’s throw from Butterfly Beach (my personal favorite beach in Santa Barbara), as well as a short walk to delicious eateries on Coast Village Rd (I recommend Bree’osh). There are multiple outdoor spaces at the beach house that have their own unique vibe. We especially loved the MULTIPLE outdoor fireplaces and the crazy hot tub with fountain. Everything was sparkling clean, the beds were comfy, and we felt right at home. Highly recommend this place in Montecito!


by Joann on 11/15/2019
The Riviera Retreat was exactly that! Absolutely beautiful views. The house was well appointed with very comfortable furnishings and beds. Can't wait to return!

Simply Fabulous

by Heather on 11/14/2019
We loved Ballard Canyon Ranch! It was a wonderful stay. My only suggestion would be to replace the coffee maker. It took a good 45 minutes to brew a pot of coffee.


by Emily on 11/14/2019
We had a wonderful time!

The views were amazing

by Stephanie on 11/12/2019
We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed spending time with our daughter and new son in law. The views were amazing and we felt very comfortable because it had everything we needed!

Great Experience

by Jared on 11/12/2019
This house is a slice of heaven. Amazing views, incredible comfort, and premium location. I cannot wait to schedule another team offsite at this location.

Amazing Home

by Paula on 11/11/2019
Thank you for such an amazing home. We loved it!

Great Downtown Location

by Doreen on 11/08/2019
We were in town for a show at the Arlington. Perfect walkable location for show, restaurants, and wine tasting. The property was beautiful and deck lovely.

Family Retreat

by Weber on 11/07/2019
A family gathering with ages ranging from 12 to 74. Everyone was blown away by the choices of activities and the beauty of the property. Can't wait to do it again.

Villa Monte Sereno

by Joe M on 11/05/2019
You will not find a better place for your family outing in Montecito area. Everything you need is provided, its private, its great for entertaining the family and interacting around the fire pit. The kids loved the pool. It was the perfect location for us...our Son's Wedding was at the Four Seasons Biltmore and the rehearsal dinner at San Ysidro Ranch. Plus the Village being close for those extras that everyone needs. We were sad to leave.

Just Steps From The Beach

by Kim on 11/04/2019
Five stars!!! The perfect cottage just steps from the beach. The furniture and home is very tastefully decorated. Cozy but not small. Comfortable for friends and families to entertain and live like it is your own home. The location is perfect to walk to dinner or lunch. Lush garden and outdoor living areas surround the house. Highly recommend!!

Everything was great

by Clarence on 11/02/2019
Very nice home, loved the design. There was only two televisions which made it even better.

Absolutely Amazing

by Maxine on 10/31/2019
The cricket adobe was the ultimate dream house! We stayed for my wedding and it was absolutely perfect! The space is just gorgeous and the decor is a Spanish style dream. Everything was clean and worked well. The house and the location to everything was perfect!

Neat, Clean, & Perfectly Located

by Christine on 10/28/2019
The Hideaway was perfect for the 3 of us here for a friends wedding. The cottage was neat, clean, and perfectly located for all of our activities. We will definitely keep this place in mind if we are fortunate enough to return to Santa Barbara.


by Ruth on 10/28/2019
The Paradise View property was amazing! Very spacious for the 7 people that stayed there. The house was private and the views were amazing! I highly recommend this property!

Family Birthday Event

by David on 10/26/2019
We found the Bella Vista property excellent in every way. It accommodated all 15 of us (10 adults, 5 children) perfectly. We loved the spacious and comfortable living areas, the many recreation features (pool and bocce court especially), the usable kitchen, and the outdoor pizza oven. Overall the experience rates "exceeds expectations." [A couple of appliances -- dishwasher and washing machine -- do need attention, as we reported while there.]

Everything was Excellent!

by Nikki on 10/26/2019
This house was perfect for our group weekend get away. Location was amazing. The house was cozy, spacious and clean. We enjoyed the yard as well. We look forward to booking this property again for future visits.

We Will Be Back

by Marku on 10/24/2019
Lovely stay, lovely home. We will be back!

Santa Barbara

by Mary on 10/23/2019
The house has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. We loved the pool, hot tub, and private beach.


by Barbara on 10/18/2019
The house was attractive, comfortable and definitely well stocked. We loved sitting in the outside area after a full day and relaxing around the fire pit, even when it wasn’t lit. The location so close to the downtown and a market a half block away suited us well as we did not have a car for our stay. The best part was the staff at Paradise Retreats: friendly, warm and always helpful.


by Patricia on 10/17/2019
Great location, comfortable,cozy accommodations, well equipted kitchen. Bonus was the lush bathrobes. Greatly appreciated.


by Beatriz on 10/16/2019
We loved our stay in this charming cottage. It is a very good location and neighborhood. We will recommend. Thank you.

Amazing weekend

by Augusto on 10/16/2019
We had the best time at villa riviera. The house is absolutely beautiful, perfect location, amazing views and very comfortable for a family of 7. Can’t wait to rented again soon!

Wonderful Family Stay

by Robert on 10/16/2019
We stayed here for a family vacation and had a wonderful time. The kids loved the house, especially the back yard! We had plenty of space and everything we need for a stress free getaway in a beautiful location.

5 Stars

by Elisa on 10/14/2019
As always, sharing meals on the deck overlooking sand and sea was delightful.

Perfect Place

by Karen on 10/13/2019
We loved our stay in this lovely home! Thank you!! Perfect place. See you again soon...


by Stacy on 10/10/2019
We would stay here again! Very comfortable, great location and the management and property manager were accessible and prompt when we needed some help.

Unique Experience

by Kathy on 10/07/2019
Thank you for a unique experience at The Whale House. We are really enjoyed it. It was very comfortable, clean, & well stocked. We will always remember a cool experience! The "cave" was a scary thrill for the 4 year old. We all felt like we were kinds in a tree house. Thanks so much!

Great Time

by David on 10/07/2019
Had a great time!

Home Away From Home

by Conrado on 10/07/2019
The property is well-appointed; the kitchen, most especially, was wonderful. It is in a quiet (and private) street despite being close to many popular spots.

Los Olivos Wine Tasting

by Frank on 10/05/2019
Very comfortable and cozy place. 6 adults had plenty of room and space. Just a block from the wine tasting and food of downtown Los Olivos. Very nice indoor and outdoor gathering places to discuss the day and sample the wine finds. Plenty of easy access parking. All the sleeping areas are upstairs as well as the 2 showers. We would definitely rent here again.


by Susan on 10/03/2019
beautiful place, well stocked, great location.

Really Nice

by Jennifer on 10/02/2019
The house was exactly as described and had pretty much everything you could need while on vacation. Furnishing and beds were very comfortable. Close to food, shops and the beach. The staff were friendly and very helpful. We had 6 adults staying here for 5 days and would all highly recommend staying here.

Enjoyed Every Single Part Of Our Stay

by Suzanne & Jeff on 09/29/2019
What a beautiful home! We were here for the month of September and thoroughly enjoyed every single part of our stay at 336 Padre. My new home away from home. We will definitely return. We picked out some cushions for the outdoor chairs we think you will like. Our little way of saying thank you for sharing your home!

Awesome Paradise Retreat!

by Linda on 09/28/2019

Never Have to Leave the Property!

by Susan on 09/25/2019
You won't be disappointed if you choosed this property! It is AMAZING.We used it for a multigenerational family gathering and the property was perfect. Spacious bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms, and great water pressure for showers. The kitchen was fully stocked. The grocery store is 1 mile away. Plenty of amenities outdoors as well. The grounds are impeccably maintained and the beach is a short hike away. You will never want to leave. It was so relaxing. We would all love to go back!

Beautiful home and great service!

by Stacy on 09/25/2019
Paradise view was just what we were looking for. Enough space for our whole family. The kids loved the backyard. View was amazing and the icing on the cake after a long day out. Paradise retreats service was amazing. Thank you!

Amazing home hidden away down a long country road. The spacious layout allows guests ample privacy, while still having luxury amenities such as hot tub, pool, fire pit, and the beautiful western saloon. 

Guest Review

by Anthony J on 09/22/2019
Thank you so much for giving us such a wonderful house to stay in while we visited Santa Barbara. We visited local family on the mesa, went to the Natural History Museum, the Santa Barbara Zoo, a beautiful wedding in the Santa Barbara Hills, lunch at our favorite, Fresco, and a delicious home cooked meal one night. We love your home and plan to return soon!

Beautiful Home & Surroundings.

by Rex on 09/22/2019
Our family enjoyed a special time in your beautiful home & surroundings! We were here for a family wedding. Location was perfect for Santa Barbara too! Hope to come back at another time.

Location, Location, Location!

Pictures don’t do this place justice. Very spacious and spectacular location. Very well equipped and stocked with most anything you’d need.

Wonderful Vacation

by Elizabeth on 09/19/2019
I am in my 50's and traveled with a group of friends to the wine country. Turner Vineyard was a perfect spot for us. Plenty of space indoors and out to visit as a group. There are also sitting areas if you want some quiet time. The kitchen was very well equipped as we cooked several meals (they did not have muffin tins but we bought some!). The beds are very comfortable, and the place is well equipped with extra blankets and sheets. There were also plenty of towels for the bathrooms and the pool. The views are beautiful. They provide drinking water and there is a Sonos sound system. I would definitely recommend the place and stay there again. I have rented several houses, and this is at the top of the list.

Beach Perfection

by John on 09/19/2019
The house was very clean and had everything we needed. Was great for traveling with kids. Yard for the kids to play in. Along with beach towels, umbrellas and chairs! In walking distance to beach, restaurants and museums. Would definitely stay here again.

Lovely & Amazing House

by Jorge on 09/19/2019
We had a wonderful time at Santa Barbara enjoying this lovely and amazing house! Specially we loved cooking in this great kitchen and enjoyed the stunning views! Thanks so much, we will be back

Memorable Times!

by Sarah on 09/18/2019
We had a great time staying here and visiting Santa Barbara. The house had everything we needed and was close to all the activities we did, Great memories!

Wonderful Stay at Tierra Fina!

by Nels on 09/18/2019
Our stay at Tierra Fina was wonderful! Well beyond any expectations. The house is beautifully and tastefully decorated. Straight out of the pages of Sunset Magazine. The pool/hot tub are perfect for lounging and enjoying the afternoons. We enjoyed cooking in the well outfitted chef’s kitchen and eating our meals on the front patio and watching the sunset over the ocean. The owner has put so much attention to detail into making this home extraordinary. The movie projector in the master bedroom and the ping pong table/hang zone in the back are nice touches. The location is perfect-in a quite neighborhood about 150 yards form the beach access. We would vacation here again in a heart beat! Cannot recommend this home enough. We have traveled extensively and stayed in many vacation rentals and this home is by far the best experience we have had. Do yourself a favor and stay here on your next Santa Barbara vacation. You won’t want to leave!

Happy as Clams!

by Alissa on 09/18/2019
This was the most stocked AirBnb I’ve ever been in. Move in ready! Just bring groceries and a suitcase! Thank you Paradise Retreats. Felt like home away from home!

Downtown Joy

Relaxing and Lovely!

by Lisa on 09/18/2019
Great place for a small group to relax - stunning views and great outdoor kitchen. We didn’t use the rooftop spa, but it looked inviting!

Family Bliss and Bike to the Beach

by Salina on 09/18/2019
We really enjoyed this house. No AC, but plenty of fans, and breeze with the doors and window open during our stay. We enjoyed and appreciated the board games and puzzles in the front room. The layout was great for our family. The backyard was my favorite! Gated and clean. The outdoor table and sitting area are so relaxing. The location is not far from the beach. A quick bike ride to get there. Best of both worlds.

Relaxing Weekend Retreat

by Craig on 09/18/2019
Enjoyed the charming character of this home. Well equipped in the kitchen and comfy beds, lots of towels. The location is fairly close to the hub of State street and Funk Zone. Owners were gracious as their office is next door. Outdoor lounge area is great!

Peace and Relaxation

by Michael on 09/13/2019
We had a lovely time at the Seaside cottage. Great location, quiet neighborhood, a 5 minute walk to the beach. Lots of windows and light - open the windows for a nice breeze. The best part is the backyard with the fountain and fireplace - a nice place to hang out and relax. The kitchen is well stocked if you like to cook and the Viking stove is great.

Cozy Cottage

by Robin on 09/13/2019
This cottage was perfect for our anniversary trip to Santa Barbara! It was just steps away from the beach and walking distance to great restaurants and shopping. The house was cozy and we loved the indoor/outdoor experience!

Wine Time

by Adriann on 09/13/2019
Thank you so much for having us! We all had a wonderful time! We would definitely stay there again and will highly recommend to any one that wants to visit. Thank you for the bottle of wine and letting me check in a couple hours early. I really appreciate it!

Annual Trek to the Sea

by Jane on 09/12/2019
Great time, second visit and we enjoyed every minute of it. Only regret is having to leave. No dolphins this year, but we did see sea lions. Will be back in 2020.

Relaxing and Lovely!

by Warren on 09/12/2019
Lovely property and grounds. Spread out enough in the house so that 4 couples can have a solo respite. Pergola in the garden was so comfortable to sit in the late afternoon!

Families and Fun!

by Keith on 09/12/2019
It's just an amazing space, perfect for a family getaway, especially a family that love pool time.

We can't express in only a few sentences how much we truly loved and appreciated this beautiful home by the sea! This was a favorite vacation for the whole family and we treasured every minute of this stunning home with amazing views! This is one for the memory books that we will never forget!

A Fountain of Delight

by Robin on 09/12/2019
We had a wonderful week in Santa Barbara. This amazing cottage made it a perfect vacation. My husband particularly liked the fountain on the terrace and made sure to replenish the water when needed.

Our Stay at Holbytla

by Mike on 09/11/2019
The home was in great condition, everything worked as it should, the kitchen was well stocked, and all instructions were easy to follow. The neighborhood was very quiet, the outdoor pool area very inviting and relaxing. The home was well situated for access to the airport, downtown, Stearns Wharf, and the Funk Zone. Great selection of wineries, brew pubs, and restaurants within 10 minutes. Picturesque Arroyo Burro beach was less than a mile away.

Home Away from Home!

by Pia on 09/10/2019
The Hideaway was a beautiful, cozy and spacious little cottage in the best location imaginable to experience the best summer vibes in Santa Barbara. Short walking distance to the beach, the Marina, the Pier, and Lower State Str. restaurants and wineries. Great morning rides on house bikes and wonderful beach days with beach gear . The house was sunny and had a great little patio and outdoor dinning perfect for alfresco evenings..... Loved the place..I stayed here for a month, and didn´t want to leave!!! My new home away from home...

Lovely Home

by Dawn on 09/08/2019

Home Away from Home!

by Melanie on 09/06/2019
It was fabulous and very well equipped!


by Janice on 09/05/2019
Beachfront Bliss is our home away from home. This visit was particularly wonderful and meaningful. Not only do we come here to relax and enjoy the surroundings, we find that it deeply connects us to our family and friends. When there is an issue such as plumbing, Paradise Retreats is very responsive. We just adore coming to Carp and this home is warm and welcoming and comfortable. We cannot imagine a summer without it.

Perfect Beach Get Away

by David on 09/04/2019
We were looking for a place to escape to the beach and this cute house in Summerland was perfect for our family. Situated close enough to everything and still a private oasis. We loved the coffee shop across the street, the restaurant next store and the beach two blocks away for morning runs and evening strolls. Thank you for the perfect week!

Great Location and Property

by Mahalia on 09/04/2019
We had an amazing time during our stay. The house fit our needs and it was a great location just 10 mins from downtown. We will definitely stay again if we are in the area.

Home Away from Home!

by Jessica on 09/04/2019
Clean, well appointed. Would recommend and return! Thanks!

Beauty at the Beach

Great Family Get-Away

by Gina on 09/04/2019
We had a great week together as a family - everything was in excellent working condition, and had everything we needed to comfortably enjoy our stay. The backyard was beautiful and perfect for relaxing together.

Weekend Wonder in SB!

by Kevin on 09/04/2019
Cute place, just what we needed!

Lovely stay!

by Grace on 09/04/2019
A well-appointed and very clean, custom-designed property. Adults enjoyed the well-stocked kitchen and cozy library; the kids enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi. We'd stay again!

A Wonderful Place to Stay!

by Brianne on 09/04/2019
The property was so great and we really enjoyed our stay here! It had everything you could think of and more, very clean and in a great location!

Gorgeous Everything!

by Marc on 08/30/2019
Gorgeous property extremely well maintained with stunning ocean view, enjoyable pool, and open spaces for multiple family members to enjoy. The landscaping and wide property put it over the top. A home built in 1960 and has some modern touches throughout, a beautiful throwback experience with ample comforts throughout. Wish we owned the place!

An amazing stay- can't wait to repeat

by Sima on 08/30/2019
Our stay at Sea Glass Cottage was amazing. A perfect ocean view greets you every morning. The house has every item you would need on your stay. Having stayed in other home rentals around the country, this has been by-far the most convenient and well stocked home. Located a few minutes drive from the beach and grocery stores, I couldn't imagine a simpler, quieter, and more relaxing spot. Our kids were able to share a room with twin beds (a rare rental-home find), explore the amazing back yard, do some puzzles, enjoy the picture books, and fall in love with California. When can we come back?!

Phenomenal Visit!

by Sarah on 08/30/2019
We were very lucky to find Casita Azul. It was our first visit there and the home is so beautifully appointed and immaculately clean. No detail is missed. Thank you for the hospitality!

Wonderful Experience

by Elliot on 08/29/2019
Villa Ballena is a large, lovely home, perfect for a big family gathering. It is very well-equipped and maintained. We enjoyed our stay very much!

Fabulous Family Vacation Compound

by Tom on 08/28/2019
This is the most beautiful setting in Montecito! The home and cottages were perfect for our family consisting of three generations! The grounds were lush and peaceful. A beautiful pool and plenty of pool floats to keep kids busy and happy. Easy walk to the town of Montecito and just a few miles from Santa Barbara attractions. There were bikes left for us on the property, beautiful outdoor cooking area, plenty of gathering areas, great kitchen with plenty of supplies. We are already planning to return next year!! Oh, and as an extra treat there is a vegetable garden which we were allowed to use. We also felt the home was super clean. They left enough bedding to also create a few extra beds from pull out sofas - (we did not need, but nice to know). Our grandkids cried as they were driven to the airport - they wanted to stay!!! We really cannot imagine a better home for a family vacation.

Beauty at the Beach!

by Catherine on 08/28/2019
We enjoyed a truly wonderful family vacation at Seacliff. The house was perfectly clean, well appointed for cooking family meals, with gorgeous beach and the biggest, protected sand area for my two-year old granddaughter. We were delighted and thank you for the ease of booking, timely information flow and for your excellent service.  All in all, excellent.

Great Stay in SB

by Brianne on 08/28/2019
Our stay was excellent! The house has everything you could need and more! Plenty of towels for the amount of people staying and overall a great experience! The house was in a convenient location to downtown area.

Great Everything!

by jay on 08/27/2019
Everything was great really. We will rent this home again and recommend it to others. Best mountain views I have ever seen. 

Fantastic family reunion location!

by Darcy on 08/25/2019
The Bella Vista property is amazing! We had 12 people (6 couples) for a 4 day trip and this property worked out so well! There was enough room to spread out so no one felt cramped. We took full advantage of all amenities, lounging areas, dining areas and hang out spaces. The property was very clean and the best part were the views! Oh and you can’t forgot Bella, the resident cat. She was the best little girl ever!  I give this house a very high score and would come back for sure!

Quiet and Convenient

by Bogdan on 08/24/2019
A nice quiet house in the walking distance to the beach and supermarkets. Huge backyard and a good set of outdoor furniture to enjoy Santa Barbara weather.”

Magical and Comfy!

by Wendy on 08/24/2019
This property was more impressive than the listing. Very organized and thoughtful consideration for guests with plenty of extra supplies. They kicked it up a notch with plush linens and towels giving that extra resort feel. Placement of seating areas throughout the property really expanded the living space. Whomever set this place up has great style and experience with particular items throughout the home. Beds and seating were very cozy and made it easy to relax. The location is right down the street from downtown action, restaurants and shops. We enjoyed our visit and the beaches. Thank you for everything

Gorgeous stay!

by Bianca on 08/23/2019
We came to Santa Ynez for a wedding with our twin babies, my parents and my aunt and cousin to help with the twins while we all went to the wedding. We stayed 3 nights. Upon arrival, I was surprised at how small the house was for the price. I’m no realtor, but I don't think It was bigger than 1500 square feet. For 8 human bodies...it seemed laughably small. We settled in, and after setting up the pack and plays, my luggage was basically in the living room the whole time. Not ideal, but not it wasn’t the end of the world for me either. The house came with one pack and play and a cute toddler seat/bed, which was nice. There were also so toddler toys in the garage that my babies love to ply with. The house was impeccably clean. Everything worked well, and the beds were comfy. There were plenty of towels, which was a major plus! The property was a dream! We forgot how small the house was because we were outside most of the time. We played tennis every morning, had picnics on the grass, and watched the moon rise after cooking a nice dinner on the grill. The location was also great...7 min from Los Olivos, 15 to Solveign, 7 to Bridlewood Winery. I would definitely come back!!!

Amazing and Delightful

by Linda on 08/20/2019
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. This property is amazing! The perfect place for our family to celebrate our daughter's graduation from UCSB. The house was more than adequate and we so enjoyed being by the pool and hot tub. We will share our precious memories of being together.

A Private Oasis

by David on 08/20/2019

A Retreat That Inspires

by Andrew on 08/20/2019
What an amazing retreat you have created with the attention to detail we love. This could be a very expensive stay as now Steve wants a pool/spa at our house. Thanks for sharing your special spot! We'll be back!

20 Acres of Serenity and Fun!

by Susan on 08/20/2019
We had an amazing stay at Ballard Canyon Ranch. The property is beautiful, quiet and serene. It was in the perfect location for hiking, wineries, and restaurants. The house was clean, updated and worked perfectly for our family of 7! We especially enjoyed the fire pit and making s’mores in the evening! We hope to return soon!

Perfect Vacation Home

by Michi on 08/19/2019
With ALL of the rentals I have looked at over the years in both Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez, not only for myself, but also for family and guests, the Hideaway View Loft is BY FAR the most perfect vacation home period! To have a loft that is so beautifully decorated and furnished with an equestrian flare and that has an office, full kitchen, laundry room, two pull-out sofas for guests, wifi, cable, etc is a dream. I love that the loft is connected to a barn and that every view on the property is incredible with the rolling hills, the flower garden, and the most amazing sunsets that make you never want to leave the Hideaway View Loft. I would stay and live here permanently without any hesitation whatsoever!

Ballard Canyon Ranch

by Ken on 08/18/2019

A Great Gathering Place

by David on 08/14/2019
Thank you for sharing your house. We had people from all over to visit us - Duke University, Pittsburgh, Denver, Los Angeles and Nipomo.

So thank you!

I'm a Santa Barbara local and my family from Minnesota rented this house. We had 6 adults, 5 teenagers, and 2 year old twins and we could not have rented a better house! The whole family stayed here even us locals. We had the best week and will be back. I will recommend this rental to all. Thank you so much!

Recreational Dream Near Hope Ranch

by Eric on 08/14/2019
Stayed at the property for UCSB college reunion events. It was a great property for this purpose! Almost equidistant from downtown and the campus. Lot of space for seven all wanting individual beds. Cooked out twice - very well equipped kitchens....yes, two full kitchens! Highly recommend this property for those looking for comfortable living and entertaining space both inside and out.

Very Good

by Sandra on 08/14/2019
My family of 12 people really enjoyed the house and the pool in August They even provided beach chairs to go to the beach close by when we thought we needed to bring our own. 2 Kitchens were nice we all used the larger one in the guest house to cook our dinners. The game room with the large TV was great for the college kids to hang out at. Sandy

In July, 2019, our family enjoyed a fantastic week in Santa Barbara - a world away from our home in Princeton, NJ. Our favorite times were swimming laps at the Santa Barbara Pool, enjoying the beach and breakfast at Hendry's Beach and the exciting Fiesta Parade. We loved the terrace, and every night we enjoyed the sunsets. Beautiful home!

Great Family House

by Kaitlin on 08/13/2019
We loved our stay here! The house is very cute and has everything that we need to have a wonderful stay! Hope we come back soon!

Evening Bliss!

by John on 08/13/2019
No faults at all. We had family of 5 and there was plenty of room. The hot tub was great, as was the outside seating and fire pit. Would highly recommend. Location is perfect.

Comfortable and Convenient

by Gina on 08/13/2019
My family of 9 had a very relaxing three days at this charming and quaint Victorian home. The comfortable mattresses and high-count cotton sheets provided luxurious sleeping comfort. The two bathrooms on the first floor appeared to be newly remodeled with all the modern conveniences and first-class white fluffy towels. Downtown State Street was very close by and we took a nice walk there one day. The beach was only about 15 minutes away---very convenient overall.

Most Enjoyable Stay!

by Cece on 08/13/2019
We had a most enjoyable stay at Casita Azul! This is the best equipped cottage of our three experiences with Paradise Retreats. The location is fabulous! The little patio is such a great spot for breakfast or a sunset glass of wine. We will be back.

Loved It!

by Leslie on 08/13/2019
Nice stay!

Loved It!

by Amy on 08/13/2019
Perfect location on State St, comfortable beds, enough room for 6, hot tub was so nice. Would stay again. Thanks!

Vacation Perfection

by Marius on 08/13/2019
Great location. Great house. Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for a vacation home in Santa Barbara.

Comfort and Convenient

by John on 08/13/2019
It is a very comfortable house, lots of room, well-equipped kitchen. great pool. ocean view. mature landscaping. rabbits and frogs, oh my. small private beach down the street and then down the cliff by stairs. rental staff is responsive and helpful. no a/c but it wasn't hot while we were there. wonderful orchid nursery 3 blocks away.

Enchanting Home with Incredible Views!

by Robert C on 08/13/2019
Beautiful house, location & views - 10 minutes drive from the town, peace and quite, beautiful design, layout & furniture. Fabulous place for or group of 9.

The Perfect Family Retreat

by Patrick on 08/09/2019
The Downtown Villa exceeded our expectations in every way. We have a family of six and it fit us perfectly. It felt much larger than the photos suggest and is furnished perfectly. The home was immaculate and well decorated. It had absolutely everything that we would ever need for a full summer stay. The backyard was great for grilling and acting as home base for all of our Santa Barbara activities. The location could not be better. It's walkable to everything and perfectly situated right next to State St. and short walk to West beach and Stearns Warf. If you don't like walking, grab one of the bikes that are included. They worked great and a ride along the beach over to the zoo or Butterfly Beach is just what you need. We were a little worried about no AC in the heat of August, but it wasn't an issue at all. Plenty of fans in the house, so a few open doors and windows and you'll be fine.

Loved It!

by Nancy on 08/08/2019
Great location, immaculate, well-appointed. We loved our stay.

Deluxe house

by Mary on 08/08/2019
Beautiful home with all the amenities you could want! Great location. Convenient to everything!

Endless Summer Retreat

by Irene on 08/06/2019
This home was just perfect for our families. We enjoyed the location as well as the home itself. All of the appliances were in good working condition, there were more than enough bath towels and sheet sets and there were plenty of items in the kitchen that made our cooking easy. It was very clean and had updated furniture and good beds and bedding. The home appeared to be broken up by a lot of staircases, however, we appreciated the layout because of the open floor plan. The outdoor furniture (tables, chairs and sofa)was in excellent shape and we took advantage of all the wonderful beach chairs as well as beach umbrellas. It was an excellent rental and we would be happy to rent there again. 


by Imad on 08/05/2019
It was a very pleasant stay. We enjoyed the house. It was very well equipped and clean. Everything in the house was from very good quality and furnished from A to Z. The area is very quiet and the house has a beautiful view. Internet wasn’t that good. We didn’t even need to contact the management, but when we called them they replied quickly. Thanks

Wonderful Property on the Riviera

by Tim on 08/05/2019
My family and I really enjoyed the Riviera Retreat property. It was ideally located close to practically all of the things we love about Santa Barbara - East Beach, East Beach Tacos (and the batting cages), the Funk Zone, Mission Street Ice Cream, downtown, and The Habit on Milpas (who doesn't enjoy a fresh made burger and fries after a full day at the beach?). I've been renting vacation homes in Santa Barbara for 20+ years and I have to honestly say this was the most well equipped home I've ever stayed in. The property was very spacious, comfortable and clean, tastefully decorated, and with the multiple levels provided excellent privacy if one so chose it. The home also has spectacular views of the city and the ocean, and there's just something special about having the gentle sea breezes blow through the windows and doors during the evening. This really is an excellent property and I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

Just perfect - as always!

by Brian on 08/03/2019
Our second year in succession staying at the Beachside Bungalow and it never disappoints! Perfect location, exquisitely furnished and equipped. I just wish we could stay for longer. Each time we have stayed here as part of a multi-location holiday and it has always been the unquestionable highlight. Thank you.

Montecito Magic

by Georga on 08/03/2019
Having previously stayed at the Four Seasons nearby, we hoped this property would offer the same experience for our entire family. Our expectations were exceeded! Every amenity has been provided for and the entertainment options are endless. We took cues for our own vacation home. From the expansive pool and pool house with FP and TV, to the boules court, fire pit, in ground trampoline, tree swing, ping pong, outdoor kitchen, seating under the arbor, picking fruit from the incredible garden....we really could not have found a more perfect background for family fun. And we didn't even have time for the bikes! It is beautifully designed, but not too precious to have fun. The walk to the beach is short and there are so many shopping and dining options in close proximity. Today, having lunch with our grandchildren, the talk turned to trampolines. The three year old wondered if we were talking about Mr. Barlow's trampoline. Barlow is the very affable property manager, who will make sure your stay is everything you expect. We were delighted that this home became available, as our children and grandchildren think we are awesome to have reserved it!

Resort style pool and backyard was the star of this well appointed house

by Debra on 08/03/2019
The main house and guest house accommodated everyone nicely but the oversized pool area and abundant lounging areas stole the show. We started our day with coffee in the covered seating area by the pool and ended the day with a glass of wine by the well appointed fire pit. Also, the beds were comfortable and linens top notch. Pool towels were provided and double washers, dryers and laundry soap was a big plus throughout the week. This was an excellent house to accommodate our extended family vacation.

July, 2019

by Jim on 08/03/2019
Grey Gull Rest is a breathtaking beachfront property. We have stayed in homes and apartments in both the US and Europe, but nothing as impressive as GGR. The accommodations are outstanding but most of our time was spent on the deck or the beach. We never needed to contact Paradise Retreats both because there were no issues but also because written instructions and explanations were posted as needed. We are anxious to return when possible but fearful that once word gets out GGR will need to be booked far in advance. Our heartfelt thanks to both the property owners and to Paradise Retreats.


by Jan on 08/02/2019
The Sea Glass Cottage is in an ideal location, just a few blocks from Shoreline Park and the beach and accessible to everything Santa Barbara has to offer. The house is impeccable - spotless, beautifully decorated, and stocked with every amenity you could need to make your stay comfortable. The beds and bedding, in particular, are heavenly. Wonderful view of the ocean from the tropical front patio, shaded by numerous palms in the yard and in planter boxes. Lovely back-yard with space for children to play and multiple outdoor eating options.


by Kate on 07/31/2019
We had a great time. Even tho the fire alarms were dying and put off a horrible noise when we got there & a few times through out the night, the property managers were quick to arrive, assess the situation & take care of it. They saved the day!! Truly great!

Absolutely beautiful and SO clean!!

by Kyra on 07/31/2019
Absolutely beautiful home and so close to everything! We walked all over downtown, shopped and rode the bikes at the house along the path at the beach. The home is so clean and has everything you need for a wonderful stay in Santa Barbara.

Family Reunion Heaven

by Mark on 07/31/2019
Eight adults and one six-year-old had a great week together at Cricket Adobe. Plenty of private space for family units, and lots of communal areas for gatherings, inside and out. Plus, easy walk to Miramar Beach.

Amazing week at Paradise Ranch

by Mark on 07/30/2019
We recently enjoyed a terrific vacation at Paradise Ranch. The home offers outstanding views of the Pacific with ample outdoor space to enjoy the incredible California weather. The kitchen was extremely well appointed, which made cooking and dining al fresco extremely easy. Plenty of space for our family, and our kids loved the pool/hot tub. All in all, a relaxing and peaceful week. We would highly recommend this property.


by Marius on 07/29/2019
We had a fantastic week at Holbytla. Beautiful vacation home near Hendry's beach with all amenities required for a splendid holiday. I will give Holbytla my best recommendations.

Amazing Home

by David on 07/29/2019
Everything was perfect. This home is great for family gatherings. Super close to downtown SB- but yet secluded and quiet! Highly suggest considering this home for your holiday. 

Fantastic week

by Gudmund on 07/25/2019
We really enjoyed a fantastic week in the house. Everything was perfect, kitchen, bedrooms, swimming pool, quiet and clean. We hope we can come back again.

Great Family House

by William on 07/24/2019
We had our 3 kids their spouses and 2 grandkids. Plenty of room for all, and easy access to the beach. The kitchen is great- large and has everything you could possibly need. All the beach toys and kayaks you’ll need too. The kids loved the train going by every hour or so. Chris who met us at the house was very nice. Cleaners were there right at 10 on checkout day.


by Blane on 07/19/2019
Our family had a magical experience visiting Santa Barbara and the home is exceptional! The service crew is attentive, the facility is nice and I would highly recommend!!!

The house and it's amenities were perfect!

by Mark on 07/18/2019
We loved our week at Buena Vista. The house was perfectly represented in the pictures and descriptions. The staff was was helpful and our (Very small) issue was fixed within the hour. The house was clean and the towels/sheets were high quality. We loved the entire experience!

Charming and Relaxing

by Kimberly on 07/17/2019

Such a special place, amazing location - love being there!

Paradise in Santa Barbara

by Ronald on 07/11/2019
The Beachside Bungalow wasn't near or close to the beach, it was on the beach! I could see dolphins swimming in the ocean from my dinning room table. It was a great experience to wake up to the sounds and sights of the ocean.

Warm and Comfortable

by Gina on 07/11/2019
My family and I, nine total, had a very relaxing and enjoyable time at this home centrally located to downtown Santa Barbara and the beach. We loved the luxury high-count cotton sheets, fluffy towels, down comforters, and excellent mattresses. The kitchen provided stainless steel cookware and teflon, something we never use, along with one large cast iron skillet we loved and have many of at our own homes---healthy for you! We enjoyed sitting on the private, enclosed patio that had a large table with enough chairs to accommodate everyone. The dining room also had a large table that accommodated up to 12. We ate every meal together as I had cooked everything at home to avoid the stress of rushing to cook once we were there. We used the air conditioners on the top floor and they provided fans for the two bottom bedrooms. The two downstairs bathrooms looked remodeled and very nice. One had a claw-foot tub with a separate shower and the other had a shower. There is a nice swinging bench on the front porch and we took our family pictures there. The contract mentions noise from the freeway, but we did not have any problem with noise, it was hardly audible, either during the day or at night. It was a very relaxing and fun time for all of us and we enjoyed everything the house provided.

Love love love!

by Heidi on 07/11/2019
Love staying at Seahorse - such a special place to be. Perfect in every way!

Thank you!

by Constance on 07/10/2019
We enjoyed our visit  and look forward to visiting again next year for the 4th of July Holiday. Thank you, your team was very helpful!

Santa Barbara Nice

by Paula on 07/09/2019
Excellent accommodations. Towels are great, the stove is a wonder, and the back patio is a great sanctuary. Would stay here again.

Wonderful Spot!

by Constance on 07/08/2019
Wonderful spot! Would like to reserve for 2 weeks next year Over the 4th holiday. 

Seahorse Retreat West

by Donald on 07/08/2019
Wonderful accommodations for our family. Have been coming here for many years and now on 4 generations. The house was clean and organized. Had everything we needed.

Loved The Location

by Constance on 07/08/2019
Wonderful week! Family visiting from Germany loved the location.

Ballard Ranch

by Sue on 07/04/2019
We had a wonderful time at Ballard Ranch. The home was clean and well appointed. Paradise Retreats was easy to work with and very understanding when one of the guests accidentally took a key home and allowed them to mail it back. We will definitely stay here again-thank you!

Perfect week at an amazing property!

by Andrew on 07/02/2019
We had an amazing week at Cricket Adobe! It’s a beautifully furnished home, clean and well-stocked. The kitchen had everything we needed, the beds were comfortable, the baskets of toys were a plus for kids. The location can’t be beat...a quick walk to the beach and so convenient to the freeway, yet the house and yard are very quiet and private. It really is an amazing property. We hope to return!

Naz/Om Stay

by Sheila on 06/27/2019
We had a wonderful stay at the Riviera Canyon. The house was perfect for our two families. The furniture was very comfortable and we were able to visit and relax together with plenty of room for all of us. The view was beautiful! We ate on the deck every morning and enjoyed wine out there one night too! Thank you for such a beautiful place to stay!

Wonderful Week At Cricket Adobe

by Mary Kate on 06/23/2019
Thank you for a wonderful week in a unique and fabulous house!

Views From Every Room

by Elaine on 06/20/2019
Gorgeous home with spectacular views and lots of outdoor venues. The home is spacious but warm - great vibe. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Stay Here

by Janet on 06/20/2019
Riviera Canyon is a lovely home that served as a hub for family/friends gathering around our daughter's graduation. The location is quiet and serene with spectacular views. The home is beautiful, warm, inviting and well appointed. Highly recommend - we will be back.

Beautiful Home & Great Location

by Tim on 06/19/2019
Beautiful home and nice yard, within walking distance to Los Olivos and the tasting rooms and restaurants and even the beds were comfortable. Would definitely go again!

We will stay here again!

by Catherine on 06/17/2019
The view from the house is spectacular. The gardens are beautiful and the house is very comfy. We will stay here again!

Lovely Cottage in Los Olivos

by Leigh on 06/12/2019
What a wonderful place! So quaint and beautiful with a spacious outdoor area for early morning coffee or evening wine. Within walking distance to town for meals, shopping and of course, wine tasting. We would definitely stay here again.

Home Away From Home

by Anastasia on 06/10/2019
This house became our home away from home! It is perfect in every way. Loved the touch of the bunny on the table for Easter. Fantastically stocked and very comfortable. Thank you for the Californian hospitality!

Beautiful Views

by Stephanie on 06/10/2019
Beautiful home, well kept and beautiful views.

Beautiful Home In Amazing Setting

by Julie on 06/08/2019
This home is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the area. Clean, comfortable and has all the amenities you would want. I would not hesitate to return.

Would Rent Again

by Elizabeth on 05/31/2019
We had a wonderful time at Beachfront Bliss!!! A few hick ups but the management and team worked fast to fix the problems. Super nice owner who we met. Would rent again

Even Better Than The Pictures

by Thomas on 05/31/2019
My family and friends spent a week at Bella Vista in Spring of 2019. We expected a lovely place, but as soon as we walked in we realized that the posted pictures did not fully capture the locale. The whole house is filled with light, and all of the common rooms have large windows that look out across the valley to the foothills of Los Padres National Forest. Further, the outside areas not embrace that view but also to the west toward the ocean above Carpinteria. Fabulous sunset spot. The house itself is very well appointed, especially with regards to small appliances in the kitchen. Not listed in the property details are items such as a Keurig coffee maker and top-of-the-line KitchenAid stand mixer (essential for pizza dough).

Enchanting Home

by Kyle on 05/30/2019
It was magical. The architecture was unique and the decoration was ornate. It was like staying in a treehouse but so incredibly more extensive. The house has an elevator that goes up 4 stories through the middle like a tree trunk and every floor has a fire place. Wonderful, beautiful home and great stay. Plenty of room for BBQ with family out front with seating area and beautiful Santa Barbara weather. The house is very close by to the Botanical Garden so taking the walk up there and doing the hike through the garden is really an amazing experience. The location of the house couldn’t be better as it’s so close to the Santa Barbara downtown area. Highly recommend staying in this house. It’s truly an adventure. 

We Love Sea Ranch

by Sophie on 05/30/2019
The house and grounds are perfect, there's everything you need! We had a wonderful weekend.

Great Downtown Location

by Susan on 05/29/2019
Walking distance to State Street, 2 mile walk to Stern’s Pier. Great for 3 couples. Upstairs has A/C and good for group of 6 folks. Off street parking. Great front porch. Quiet area. Cute house. We rented it while attending a family wedding in Santa Barbara. Washer/Dryer was very helpful. Bathrooms were perfect. Upstairs gets warm but the 2 A/C units were perfect. Plenty of closet space and lots of towels. Backyard has grill and table - we did not use. Enjoyed the house. Would stay again. Our son lives in SB so perhaps we will!


by Anastasia on 05/25/2019
Lovely home. It was the most well stocked home we've ever stayed in. The location was perfect, close to the beach, shopping, and great restaurants. We enjoyed our stay!

Amazing Family Home

by Enrique on 05/19/2019
Great location, very unique spanish style home. There are many different unique corners in the house that make you feel like you are in a different part of the world. We would definitely stay in this house again.

Great Home

by Margie on 05/17/2019
Great home on the beach!!!!

Great location and SO clean!

by Elisa on 05/16/2019
The housekeepers deserve a shout out! Well done!

Beautiful, Comfortable Family Vacation Retreat/Home

by Madelyn L.M. on 05/15/2019
Light-filled rooms, comfortable seating with multiple options, functional kitchen work space, updated bathrooms, multiple bedrooms, easy walking distance from Los Olivos main street -- all came together to make this location perfect for our extended family's 5-day vacation. We would not hesitate to return. 


by Brian on 05/13/2019
This house is spectacular. I have never rented a house, so this was a very positive first experience. Your house is well stocked with everything we would need! The decor is beautiful, it's just a beautiful house. Beds very comfortable, ample room for everything, clean. You didn't miss a beat! Super organized, well thought out rules.

What A Place!

by Jt on 05/11/2019
We loved the home and its surroundings. What a place!

Fabulous Place In Montecito

by Robert C on 05/10/2019
Fabulous place in Montecito - location, design, view, furniture, features, and the peace! We stayed as a family of 9 for the weekend - excellent.

First Class

by John on 05/07/2019
I was totally impressed with Casita Azul. The check-in process was seamless, the property was immaculate and every guest need was anticipated. The train and road traffic noise were a small distraction, but the access to beach, Four Seasons, lower village more than offset. Nicely done, and I will return this summer.

We Loved It Here!

by Andrius on 05/05/2019
We came here to celebrate my mother and mother-in-law for upcoming Mother's Day. We loved it here! Beautiful location, home, and so clean! We made unforgettable memories and plan to return next year!

Comfortable and Convenient

by Jana on 05/02/2019
We had a great weekend at this charming cottage. Everyone commented that the beds were comfortable. We especially liked being right in town for wine tasting. The house is well maintained and the yards are lovely. We hope to come back again soon. 🙂

Fantastic House!!

by Vicki on 05/01/2019
We were a group of mixed ages from youngest at 2 to the oldest at 79. The house fit us all perfectly. Lots of room to move around in. Bedrooms were perfect and it seemed that there were bathrooms everywhere!!, Kitchen was well stocked. Landscape was unbelievable!! Gorgeous succulents everywhere. The outdoor patio area was perfect. Even has a working fountain. It's a great spot for young children as there is no way for them to escape. Patio area is enclosed and has a lovely table that seats at least 12. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Best Home

by Daniel on 04/29/2019
Best home I have ever stayed in. Beautiful and so well supplied. We had a great time!

A Special Place

by Nan on 04/25/2019
To celebrate our 45th anniversary, we rented Cricket Adobe over Easter. We ranged in age from 80 years to 10 months. Everyone enjoyed the trip. The house is a Spanish Colonial with a magnificent courtyard surrounded by bedrooms, kitchen, living room and play room. The grandkids entertained themselves with the many books and toys. There was a pack n play and high chair for the baby. The grounds were well landscaped with a wall surrounding the yard. The kids spent time everyday running around the grassy area. One night our kids surprised us with a dinner prepared by a private chef. All 10 of us sat around a large table to dine together in the courtyard by the fountain. We all hope to return in the future.

Fantastic Location

by Joel on 04/22/2019
Property was great, including fantastic location providing short walks to ocean activities, museums, restaurants, and the funk zone. Very enjoyable 5 weeks there!

Fantastic Stay!

by Lisa on 04/11/2019
Great location right by the ocean and Stearns Wharf, close to State Street with amazing restaurants and ton's of attractions and things to do. We travelled with our 5 year old and the accommodations were top notch, everything was well appointed and we felt right at home the second we walked in the door. The staff and concierge were super friendly and accomodating of ANYTHING we needed or had questions about. Having parking (in a private garage none the less) was a bonus as parking can be a bit of a nightmare in SB. We've already bookmarked this as our "GO-TO" place in SB when we return!

All Around Great Experience

by Brian on 04/10/2019
Beautiful property and very accommodating management. Would definitely stay here again.

Amazing Experience

by Mike on 04/10/2019
Sea Ranch is always an amazing experience and Paradise Retreats is appropriately named! Thank you, see you again soon!

Great Little Retreat

by David on 04/09/2019
Great little retreat! Clean, beautiful, and the manager was super accommodating. Will be back!

A Wonderful Time

by Nicole on 04/05/2019
We had a wonderful time. The kids especially loved all of the fun features of the house and the adults enjoyed the beautiful kitchen and comfortable beds. Thank so much!

Guest Review

by Francine on 04/04/2019
This was a conveniently located and well equipped apartment. I enjoyed a one month stay there very comfortably. For me, the only downside was that the water was very soft indeed, which is something I don’t care for. I was surrounded by hotel rooms and parking, but overall had no problems with noise. I would definitely go back. I appreciated having a garage space and private laundry.

Cozy & Safe

by Abdullah on 04/03/2019
Our vacation was wonderful specially backyard, comfortable bed and cleanliness.


by Debbie on 04/03/2019
I loved how the house was stocked so well with lots of helpful things. This was the best house I've ever stayed in. The art was amazing and I liked the decorations!

Back again!

by Caroline on 03/30/2019
My husband and I absolutely love the BCR and have visited 5-6 times. We brought returning guests this time and new ones too who all enjoyed it as well. The house is terrific and the views are unreal. So peaceful!

Wedding Weekend

by Timothy on 03/22/2019
We rented the beach house for our wedding weekend to house our closest friends. The property was just as described and with perfect weather, it made for the perfect weekend. All our guests were very comfortable with the beds and amenities.

Beautiful, Charming Vacation Retreat

by Merceditas on 03/21/2019
Really loved the house, property, and location. Perfect for our family. Would definitely stay there again!

Wonderful House

by Suzanne on 03/17/2019
Family vacation with all of us coming from Kansas City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Wine tasting, Funk Zone, Santa Barbara Zoo. Wonderful house, so many supplies etc!

Lovely Home

by Anonymous on 03/12/2019
My Avon teammates and I stayed in the house. It was very comfortable, and had enough space so we weren't tripping over each other. It is very convenient to State Street. The enclosed back yard was a great place to chill and chat over a glass of wine. I would definitely stay here again.

Laughs, Memories, & Fun

by Lynn on 03/10/2019
Mother's Day weekend, celebrating birthdays. Great meals at La Playa Azul, Joe's Cafe, Bluewater Grill, and The Palace Cafe. Lots of laughs, memories, and fun!

Breathtaking Property!

by Samantha on 03/06/2019
Worth every penny! We absolutely loved our stay at Bella Vista. Everything met and exceeded our expectations! It's an absolutely breathtaking property! If I had to say anything negative about it, I'd say some of the bathrooms could use updating but that's if I'm being really picky. The house was beautifully clean, the views are to die for and it is so so well equipped (especially in the kitchen). A great retreat whilst being so close to Santa Barbara and the beautiful beach that is Carpinteria.

Beautiful Home

by Cindy on 03/02/2019
We had a lovely visit in this beautiful home. Great week & (mostly) great weather.

Excellent Deck, Great Views, Perfect Rental Home

by Pamela on 02/25/2019
Loved our stay here, our only complaint was the weather - lots of rain. But that said, the house was great! Everything you need and more! Very clean and comfortable. Very private and close to town. Good neighborhood, great area restaurants, shopping, and beaches.

Enjoy Santa Barbara

by Brett on 02/21/2019
Great location, nice home.

Perfect location!

by Keena on 02/21/2019
This home is literally steps to every restaurant and tasting room in the Los Olivos downtown area. The home contained everything we needed and was beautiful and clean. We all want to make this trip a regular occurrence because we loved it so much!

Relaxed & Rejuvenated

by Roy on 02/20/2019
On this wonderful patriotic day, we say good bye to The Whale House. We loved our getaway with our entire family and are heading back to San Diego relaxed and rejuvenated. We weren't sure what to expect, but now we look forward to the next time we can return to The Whale House!


by Greg on 02/18/2019
The house was fantastic, nice venue, well equipped. ALL of the staff at Paradise Retreats were so helpful and kind! Thank you so much!

Beautiful house with a view

by Alexandra on 02/11/2019
This house was very well maintained, and had a beautiful view from up in the hills. It was fully stocked, had everything we needed. It was also a major plus that all of the bedrooms had large beds. We loved it.

Best Home Rental Experience

by Jenny on 02/08/2019
Out of all my home rental experiences; this home was by far the best. This is a stunning home in a great location but the details are what took this property over the top. They have thought of every convenience a home and hotel has to offer and provided it from soaps, hair dryers to pool toys to zip lock bags in the kitchen. They also provided high quality bedding which makes such a difference. The cost was very affordable when comparing to other home rentals. I would highly recommend this home.

Consistent Excelence

by Hamid on 02/07/2019
We have been spending our annual vacations at properties managed by Paradise Retreat in Santa Barbara for the last seven years and they consistently exceed our expectations. Wonderful properties, extremely clean and organized and superb customer service (Tera, our contact/guest host, is awesome!!!). We will be back every year...

We Enjoyed The Layout Of The Property

by John on 02/05/2019
Our visit was for friends and family Super Bowl get together. We enjoyed the layout of the property. The big plus was the four king private rooms. The tall men appreciated that, generally only one king in most rentals. Love all the patio seating and of course the media room was a hit on Super Bowl Sunday. John was born and raised in SB, so of course we will be back to visit family. Thanks for a great visit!

One-of-a-kind ocean property with complete privacy and spectacular views!

by Randall on 01/26/2019
If you are looking for complete privacy, ocean views encompassing sunrise and sunset (the beach runs east and west), a gated, little used beach private to the community, and comfortable, spacious, well appointed surroundings, this is it. The 60's era home is pleasant, roomy, and nicely divided for both group and individual comfort. Great kitchen, great environment, a real find.

Very Nice Home

by James on 01/21/2019
I cannot say enough about Riviera Canyon. The house was perfect for our vacation. The view is absolutely amazing. Sitting on the deck and looking over Santa Barbara was so relaxing and in the evening when things cooled off, the fire and the fluffy couches were so cozy. The house was clean and had everything we needed. I would defiantly stay here again.

A Wonderful Stay

by Ruth on 01/21/2019
As always we had a wonderful stay for the third year in a row. Thanks for all you do to make the stay enjoyable!

Best Vacation Rental Experience Ever!

by Dinah on 01/16/2019
Many thanks to the entire Paradise Retreats team! I booked a luxury home with them directly and the experience from booking to checkin was just fabulous. Lots of great follow up emails confirming reservation, suggestions for activities in the area and every detail I needed to know for an easy arrival to the property and ease in accessing the home. The home itself (Los Arboles Ranch) was spectacular. I work for a vacation rental company in San Diego as an interior designer for vacation rentals so as you can imagine I have very high standards! Im super picky! This property surpassed my highest expectations. The home was so well stocked and sparkling clean. The property is very well maintained and cared for. We had the most amazing stay and I will without a doubt be returning for a future stay. It is tempting to rent a different home next time since they have so many wonderful listing options, but I am so fond of this particular home and left with some of the best memories that I would just have to rent this home again to recreate the wonderful time we all had. Thank you Paradise Retreats and Los Arboles Ranch for helping me to have the best 40th birthday ever with all of my dearest friends. We have all now decided we need to do yearly retreats!


by Amber on 01/16/2019
The property manager was amazing and so was the house!

Everything and more

by Dave on 01/12/2019
Great location (check), great amenities (check), great assistance from Paradise rentals (check), great weather (check). This was the most complete rental we have have stayed in. We live only an hour from the property so we transported much of what we thought were incidentals that we might need during the stay.. Not necessary. The owners had thought of everything. Depending on schedules, we will be back.

A Little Gem

by Christopher on 01/11/2019
Casita Azul is set in a lush lanscaped grove of plantain fronds that affords privacy and outside space. It's built in what can be loosely described as Mediterranean adobe style. Nice design features abound. Perpendicular windows, tiles, niches, rough cast plaster. Easy walking distance to the sunsets of Butterfly beach and the atttractions of the Moorish style Four Seasons. And an even shorter walk to the Montecito Inn, shops, bars and restaurants of Montecito. A perfect little hideaway. We had out of town friends over and the space easily handled six of us. And the friends all left after taking the details for Paradise Retreats with vows to return.


by Marisa on 01/09/2019
We came for surf and got tons of it! The house is adorable and had everything we needed. The deck is perfectly set up with a table and lounge chairs for watching the surf. House has the best location! We can’t wait to return!

Fantastic Vacation House

by Gonzalo on 01/08/2019
Los Olivos Wine Retreat is a fantastic vacation house. It is walking distance from the gorgeous Los Olivos location. The property is very well maintained. The kitchen could not be better equipped. My family enjoyed every moment we spent in the house as well as outdoors.

Beautiful Rental

by Cheryl on 01/06/2019
This is a wonderful house to rent for a family vacation. The inside spaces are beautifully decorated and accommodated our group of 9. The living room is welcoming, beautiful and comfortable. We loved the fireplace and seating arrangements. The game room suited us for setting up a big puzzle, having fooze-ball competitions or watching a big football game. Kitchen is terrific - great size, big appliances, top quality cookware etc. We had a hard time gathering everyone in the dining room since it only seated 6. The grounds of this house are fantastic. Landscaping and seating arrangements are varied and beautifully care for. We made good use of the hot tub and had sunny days for appreciating the view all the way to the ocean. Sun rise and sun sets - amazing! Kids enjoyed the trampoline and we used the BBQ. Getting into Santa Barbara is really quick and easy. Likewise hiking in the hills behind the house. The house was great for us!

The Best Place

by Robert on 01/02/2019
We were bowled over by the location! Being form Ohio, but having spent time in various places in California over the years, we loved the proximity to the water and the ability to totally relax and chill. The master bedroom was the best place to wake up of any vacation spot we've visited. Thanks for the memories, we hope to return soon and often!!!

Fabulous Family Gathering Place

by Richard on 12/31/2018
Every detail was pure satisfaction. With different family coming and leaving throughout the week, we had multiple fun things to do, places to gather, resources for preparing fine meals, and sleeping in exquisite comfort. Without fail, each person who came spoke of how ideal this setting is for this kind of event. The property managers were helpful at every step. Even the weather was ideal for late December. We would happily work with them again!

A wonderful week

by Fritzi on 12/30/2018
Villa Ballena was just as represented online. The home was sprawling and comfortable, offering privacy and community for our family of seven. We loved the puzzles and the games and especially the views of the ocean and the walks on the mesa. Thank you!

Fabulous Views!

by Janet on 12/30/2018
We had a wonderful Christmas holiday in Santa Barbara. The house has sweeping views of the Channel Islands from everywhere in the house, especially the spacious deck. Montecito and downtown restaurants are a short drive, And the kitchen is more than well-equipped to prepare gourmet meals at home, Inspiration Point hiking trail is located a short distance behind the house and worth the effort! The house is very thoughtfully organized to make you feel right at home!

Relaxing and Gracious Cottage

by Kim on 12/27/2018
Our family of three recently stayed at the Cottage at West Beach in Santa Barbara. The cottage is absolutely charming and the location is perfect. We enjoyed our stay (and the weather!) very much and look forward to returning next year. Thank you to the Paradise Retreats management staff and happy New Year to everyone.

Love It!

by Tom on 12/21/2018
Second time I have been in this home. Love it so much!

All The Comforts Of Home

by Kelly on 12/20/2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay at Hideaway View loft. It is a peaceful, quiet place with all of the comforts of home. The fully stocked kitchen made it a breeze to cook and prepare our meals. The upstairs bedroom has an amazing view of the mountains which we looked forward to waking up to every morning. We will definitely stay again!!

Everything We Could Need

by Gabriel on 12/19/2018
We came here from DC to celebrate my best friend's 40th birthday, 11 adults and 4 kids, and we had a wonder time! We swam, sat by the fire, played badminton, took nature walks, and shared family meals. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us and equipping it with everything we could need.

Excellent Experience

by Lene on 12/14/2018
Had an excellent experience. House is beautiful & gardens are beautiful. Beautifully maintained. Thoughtful details such as fresh guest robes. Look forward to returning

Lots Of Room

by Mary Ann on 12/04/2018
Our family of seven spent Thanksgiving here. We have been coming to Montecito for Thanksgiving for the past five years. This year we decided to change houses and it was a great move! Everyone loved the house. We were worried about location, to walk to lower village. But, it turned out to be a short walk, to upper village also. The house was clean and lots of room for everyone.

Amazing Property!

by Becky on 12/04/2018
We loved the location, amenities, and quality of this great home. Definitely will return (hopefully soon!)

Perfect For Our Group

by Jennifer on 12/02/2018

Great Surf

by Stephen on 12/02/2018
Thank you for a wonderful stay! So beautiful and great surf!

Great Place

by Samantha on 11/29/2018
Loved the Spanish adobe and the short walk to Los Arroyos, Honor Bar, and Tre Lune. Highlight was looking at a menu at Tre Lune with an old photo of Carol Burnett and then seeing her sitting at the table next to us. Great place to share with teens, older parents, and siblings.

Incredible Memories

by Katie on 11/29/2018
Your home has helped us to make so many incredible memories. Thank you for sharing it with our families. We have already made plans to return!

Will Tell Our Friends

by Kelli on 11/29/2018
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Cottage House in Los Olivos and look forward to renting the property again in the future. We will tell our friends as well! Thank you

Perfect Location All Bedrooms En Suite

by Tasha on 11/28/2018
This location is perfectly situated at the end of the main drag, walk-able to everything Los Olivos has to offer.

Sweet & Peaceful

by Dale on 11/26/2018
We were lucky enough to spend Thanksgiving week in this beautiful home. We shared our time here with close friends/family on the front porch by the fireplace, inside....again, by the fireplace, on the hammock - and basically just took in the spectacular views. Time was well spent close by in Los Olivos and Solvang. Mornings and evenings were especially enjoyable! We shared Thanksgiving Dinner at the large dining table outside overlooking the vineyard - truly magical. *We were sure to give thanks to have been able to stay in this special place this year. It will be a memory our kids and families will remember for years to come! Thank you to the owners of Ballard Canyon Ranch and Paradise Retreats for being so helpful!!~ Thank you

Great getaway in Santa Barbara

by Mary on 11/25/2018
We loved the Cottage at West Beach. It was everything advertised and totally made our weekend. The location was great and the cottage had everything we needed to enjoy our time. We were greeted by Justin who gave us a thorough review of the home and all the amenities. We would definitely rent with your group again.

Beautiful & Very Comfortable House

by Olivia on 11/25/2018
We loved our stay at Flores in Motecito. The house is beautiful and comfortable. The location is super convenient to walk to the shops and to the beach. Will come back.


by Anonymous on 11/25/2018
Amazing house, terrific location, and memories that will last a lifetime!

Warm & Happy Memories

by Linda on 11/24/2018
We had a wonderful time over this past week. We enjoyed the backyard and loved the pool, hot tub, badminton court, and BBQ. The pool house was a fun place fo the kids to hang out. We cooked, gathered, and shared Thanksgiving Dinner in the well stocked kitchen and dining room. All of the bedrooms were comfortable and the whole house was well maintained and super clean. Thank you for the warm and happy memories we created here with our entire family. We are sad to leave!


by Deborah on 11/23/2018
This rental is tucked back, a few steps to a local beach, with a patio overlooking a creek. Very cozy, very quiet.

Absolutely Lovely

by Marilyn on 11/19/2018
The home was absolutely lovely and had everything that might be needed. We had two couples and two single people staying their and it was very comfortable. Loved the decor!

We Love It Here

by Herve on 11/17/2018
We love it here, the house is cozy in the evening and bright in the day. We adored the area, so much to do and see. Thank you and we hope to be back!

Perfect Couples Retreat

by Jeff on 11/16/2018
The Town and County home was the perfect place for a 5 couple retreat in Monticeto. Beautiful home, very clean, great decor. The communication and follow up with Paradise Retreats was very detailed and timely. I great appreciated the detailed email with contact information for the day of arrival questions and the attention to all details in regard to making our vacation stay a great experience.

Amazing Trip!

by Namrita on 11/15/2018
Our weekend trip was amazing and that was mostly in part because of the hospitality Carol from Paradise Retreats showed us! She met us at the house, explained everything, and took the time to let us ask any questions. Due to fires in the are she also made sure to check in on us whole driving up and back from Los Olivos. She is the best! The house is impeccable and perfectly located- we can’t wait to go back!

We loved it so much, we dream of coming back!

by Hugo on 11/14/2018
Our family had the most wonderful 8 night stay in this amazing cottage. It truly was a delightful place to call home while we explored the surrounding areas. The hummingbirds, chipmunk, rabbits, squirrels and jays added a special magical touch to the already cozy, comfy and perfectly appointed cottage. Thank you!

Great Home base for Wine Country Adventure

by Virginia on 11/12/2018
The house was very large, much larger than I expected from the photos that were on the web site. It had everything that we needed. The kitchen was amply stocked as we had planned to cook dinner each evening. The hot tub was very nice. When we had a minor repair issue, the maintenance people responded very promptly. The price was very reasonable for the amenities provided and the location. The grounds were very nicely kept. Lots of TVs available. There were good instructions on site for how to use the property. We loved being able to walk to the tasting rooms in Los Olivos. Our group would definitely stay here again.

An Absolute Dream

by Gina on 11/12/2018
Thank you so much for letting us stay here! Your property was an absolute DREAM! Our group absolutely enjoyed the pool , spa, and the beds. We look forward to coming back!

A True Escape!

by Brian on 11/08/2018
We really enjoyed our five day visit to Executive Escape. It is a beautiful property and extremely comfortable. We hardly left. Our long weekend was a reunion of three couples who live in different parts of California. The Executive Escape property provided the perfect setting. We ate almost all of our meals there--a nicely appointed kitchen with sharp knives! All of our breakfast meals and all but one dinner were eat-in. The space is such that we could hang out or get space. The sauna is really nice. The water pressure and hot water availability are both excellent! There were some minor maintenance issues but they were quickly resolved. The team at Paradise Retreats are very responsive.

Wonderfull Experience

by Klaus-Dieter on 11/08/2018
We rented the house for one full month and were very satisfied with house, equipment, cleanliness and location. Everything was perfectly organized and staffed. We had a wonderful overall experience and planning to come back. Thank you owners and thank you Paradise Retreats.

Beautiful Design

by Ronald D on 11/05/2018

Great Escape Cottage

by Rafael on 10/31/2018
This is a charming 1940s feel cottage in Montecito, a 15-minute pleasant walk to Lower Coast Village and its restaurants, bars, shops. Very quiet, comfortable and sunny. Everything worked and was easy to figure out.

No Worries

by Ed on 10/30/2018
What a beautiful home! We enjoyed a week of relaxation and no worries. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation. Thank you so very much!

Would Highly Recommend

by Brad on 10/29/2018

by Delia on 10/24/2018
Wonderful home. Spacious, clean and comfortable. We will be back!

What a spectacular place!

by Stephen on 10/24/2018
We spent 8 nights at Flores De Montecito in October and it was just perfect. The online photos look wonderful but it was even more beautiful when we arrived. We had high expectations when we booked, and the house definitely exceeded our expectations. The decor, furnishings and linens were all lovely, the setting and garden beautiful and the area was quiet at night. We cooked a number of meals in the well-equipped kitchen. Its a quick walk to the lower village commercial area and an easy drive into Santa Barbara. We are looking forward to coming back to this beautiful place again!

Amazing Place

by Jennifer on 10/22/2018
Wow! What an amazing place. Our family loved staying at The Beach House. As Ventura locals (growing up), this place was even more of a treat.

Such Special Memories

by Lori on 10/22/2018
What an amazing, relaxing home! My family and I met here from all over Southern California & Michigan to celebrate my Dad's 60th birthday. Couldn't imagine a better meeting place. Coffee on the patio, conversation in the open living room, and awesome meals together were cornerstones of our stay. Such special memories. Thank you!

Great Rental

by Chat on 10/22/2018
We stayed in the 2 bedroom 1 bath. It was clean, comfortable and great location. The pictures are pretty accurate about how it is kept and upgraded. Would definitely stay there again.

Spectacular Weekend

by Lewis on 10/21/2018
We loved spending the weekend at your amazing house! The weather was perfect for coffee on the deck in the morning, sunbathing on the deck in the afternoon, and wine on the deck in the evening. We had a spectacular weekend in Santa Barbara. Thank you!

A Beauty

by Kai on 10/19/2018
The property is very beautiful and clean. We admired the award winning architectural and interior design: clean lines and wonderful materials, very tasteful contemporary furniture. Appliances are upgraded like everything else. And the view from the balcony is magnificent!

The Perfect Place

by Jeanie on 10/18/2018
Our family celebrated an engagement and a wedding anniversary. It was such a happy time for three generations and we have beautiful memories of this lovely home. It was the perfect place to celebrate. We enjoyed the pool, patio and barbecue, as well as just sitting around the dining room table talking and playing games. We can’t wait to return.


by Lori on 10/17/2018
Perfect, beautiful, amazing! Thank you for The Lookout.

Beautiful Architecture

by Kai on 10/16/2018
Sad to be leaving. Had a most excellent time celebrating Mom's 70th. Beautiful architecture and interior design, clean lines, and wonderful materials. And the view!

Nature, Solitude and Bliss: Magic in SYV

by Kate on 10/15/2018
I rented this beautiful loft for two months. It was everything I had hoped for and more. The loft is simply but beautifully decorated...beautiful pieces with a non-clutter feel. When I was there I hiked and biked daily...meeting the most wonderful people. I will never forget waking up to beautiful sunrises, cows grazing next door and purple sunsets over the mountains. I will be back again and again and again...and I highly recommend to anyone looking for some magical "me" or "us" time.

Beautiful Victorian

by Kathryn & Paul on 10/15/2018
Great location within easy walking distance to State Street. The house is a beautiful Victorian and furnished nicely. Easy check in/out. I would recommend and stay here again.

A Piece Of Art

by Nathalie on 10/10/2018
Thank you for letting us stay in this very unique house. It is a piece of art, in every detail! We appreciated how incredible the wood, the stone, and the window work is: it is truly art! Impressed at first, we felt more and more comfortable and happy in The Whale House privacy. The pool, the patio, and the garden are awesome. We also loved the outside shower, surrounded by bamboo and by 'the whale'! Thank you again for a unique, memorable, and enjoyable stay in the beautiful Whale House.

Amazing Space

by Robin on 10/10/2018
What an amazing space! We enjoyed the views of the oaks and sycamores. The landscaping was lovely and the creek was a treat for the senses. We did not lack for anything in the household, you thought of everything!

An Oasis

by James on 10/10/2018
A truly special place for our family to celebrate our daughter's engagement. The enchanted home was the perfect place to relax and enjoy each other. An oasis from the outside world. Everything was perfect! I only wish we could have stayed longer!

by Angela on 09/23/2018
We were here for a family wedding and chose to stay at your beautiful home instead of at the hotel. We're so glad we did because we got a lot more family time together. The house is so beautifully decorated and comfortable. The location is great and it is a quiet neighborhood. Thank you so much!


by William on 09/22/2018

Hopefully we'll be back again soon to rest and recharge at your beautiful and comfortable property!


by Mary on 08/19/2018
Our already high expectations were exceeded! Beautiful Cricket Adobe gave us everything for a wonderful 3 generation family reunion. Safe outdoor gardens for small children to run and explore. A layout that allowed all of us both privacy and togetherness. Beautiful inner courtyard table allowing dinner for 8. Everything supplied, kitchenware, books, great toys, beach towels, laundry, thorough guest information book, even a history of the house! This was perfect for 3 generations to be together.

Wonderful Shangri-La

by John on 08/04/2018
Thank you for creating such a wonderful Shangri-La in such a gorgeous location. It was the perfect place for our 10-18 year old grads to bond and play. We were even able to have surfing lessons for the children. They loved Rincon! The kitchen and pizza oven was supplied to the max with every "toy" imaginable. We loved using them all. The herbs and fresh eggs were "to die for". Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for sharing this lovely slice of paradise! Love the house, rooms, bikes, pool house, spa, fire pit, and kitchen. All were well utilized and enjoyed! Would love to return and soak up more Santa Barbara sun, wine, and sea. With love and appreciation.

Great Memories

by Brett on 07/08/2018

Very Relaxing

by Gayle on 07/07/2018
Had a good time, very relaxing. Had breakfast and lunch next door, dinner at Lucky's. Baby birds in the nest above the door. Loved every moment. We will be back!

Something For Everyone

by Adam on 07/07/2018
Amazing place, amazing time spent with family, and amazing memories. The home, grounds, and all facilities were perfect for a family celebration ages 3-75. Something for everyone and the location enabled us to sightsee and spend time at the beaches. The amenities, from beach towels, laundry, fire pit, BBQ, walking paths, fresh eggs and veggies, swimming pool, and games, provided entertainment and stress free living for young and old. Never heard "I'm bored" once! Thank you for making this 50th anniversary celebration such a success for all!

The Best

by Anonymous on 07/07/2018
We fell in love with this beautiful and very well equipped house in a second. It's an outstanding home in a perfect location, the best we had while traveling through California. Hope everyone treats this home like it's there own! I'm sure we will come back!


by Rina on 07/05/2018
We had a great stay! The Cottage is very well appointed. Everything is well thought out and very tasteful. The bed to the towels to the robes to the kitchen were all excellent quality which enhanced the experience. Delightful!

Thank you for a wonderful stay. What a great home and beautiful views. We will be back!

Great House

by Vicki on 06/30/2018

by Cindy on 06/27/2018

An Awesome House

This is an awesome house and it was a pleasure to celebrate our 50th Anniversary here. Great time!

Wonderful Memories & Moments

by Robin on 06/02/2018
We had a fabulous stay. My 17 year old daughter and I went rollerblading, bike riding, took an electric scooter to Motecito, and saw about 30 dolphins while jet skiing. The table in the dining room was perfect for our card games and the weather was great. Thanks for wonderful memories and moments.

Good Memories

by Andrew on 05/30/2018
We had a joyful time here in Summerland! Even though we had car problems that "forced" us to stay another day. That problem just gave us one more day to explore and visit the local antique shops and restaurants. We loved the cottage, which reminds me so much of our 1st home built in 1921. Good memories here too!

Wonderful Memories

by Jerry on 05/29/2018
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with our family. We truly enjoyed every minute of it. We had a blast making pizzas in the pizza oven. We have made some wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. And the views aren't too shabby either. We hope to be back!

A Very Beautiful Stay

by Jay on 05/29/2018
Thank you for a very beautiful stay on my 40th birthday. I shared it with my family and best friends in the world. It was more than I could have imagined. The house was beautiful and memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you so much!

Everything You Might Need & Then Some

by Dave on 05/29/2018
This was our first stay at Carpenteria Dreamin' and we were pleasantly surprised. Great location, miles of beach, quiet atmosphere and a residence that had every possible thing you would need and might have forgotten to bring with you. The two car covered garage with remote gates made it especially easy to get in and out. It's an easy and enjoyable walk into town, close to a large play area for kids and many restaurants to pick from. If our schedule permits, we will be back next year.

Great Stay

by Steve on 05/29/2018
Great stay for my birthday celebration!

Beautiful Home

by Jo on 05/28/2018
Loved this beautiful home. So much room and outside surroundings. Can't wait to come back.

Beautiful Cottage

by Flavia on 05/28/2018
We have enjoyed this beautiful cottage for the past three days. The location was very convenient and unbeatable. The cottage was packed with everything we needed, and the beds were very comfortable. Thank you, we hope to stay here longer our next visit.

The Best

by Tonya on 05/26/2018
What a Memorial Weekend! I have never rented a house on the beach and rented the best for our first. We enjoyed the home and the ocean. We will be back!

Place Of Respite

by Coreen on 05/20/2018
Thank you for this beautiful, quaint home away from home! We had a wonderful time in Santa Barbara, but especially enjoyed this place of respite. Everything about the home was perfect, from the comfortable beds, soft towels, and well equipped kitchen, to the amazing views!

Lovely Home

by Elisabeth on 05/14/2018
We ran for Santa Barbara wine country half marathon! Lovely home in the perfect location. Thank you!

More Than Imagined

by Jay on 05/07/2018
Thank you for a very beautiful stay on my 40th birthday. I shared it with my family and best friends in the world. It was more than I could have imagined. The house was beautiful and memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you so much!

Clean & Roomy

by Lisa on 05/06/2018
Had a great time. Love this house, so clean and roomy. Everything we needed. Thank you!

The House Is Exquisite

by Lis on 05/06/2018
This is my 4th visit to your breathtaking beach house. I simply cannot stay away. The house is exquisite and the amenities are perfect as well. Not a thing is overlooked for your guests. Several times a year is just not enough for me!

Lovely Home

by Abby on 05/06/2018
We really enjoyed our stay in your lovely home. So well decorated and equipped. Especially the kitchen! The location is wonderful.

Stunning Property

by Michael on 04/23/2018
We stayed in this truly beautiful property ahead of the wedding of our son. It is superb. Nothing or no item has been forgotten. A joy from start to finish!

Many Thanks

by Tim on 04/23/2018
Many thanks for letting us use your beautiful house. Lots of space, very well appointed, and perfect location. We really enjoyed our stay in Santa Barbara and Downtown Villa!


by Michel on 04/15/2018
We loved your place, well equipped and close to town/beach. Thanks!

Excellent Location

by Randy on 04/07/2018
Lovely place and excellent location. Enjoyed the ice cream maker and the espresso maker.

Amazing Central Location

by Kathryn & Paul on 04/02/2018
This cute Victorian offers an amazing central location (close to State Street). The home is very large with it's own living room, dining room, two bathrooms, laundry, and more. We had plenty of space and comfortable beds for our party of five. The porch swing out in front and lovely landscaping was a very nice touch! Would book again!

Gorgeous Home

by Sampson on 04/01/2018
Thanks for the use of your gorgeous home. Went to the beach three times and the zoo once. We rode bikes and enjoyed State Street. What a wonderful family experience! Your home is incredibly well stocked! Thank you, thank you.

Peaceful Respite

by Marshall on 04/01/2018
The home was lovely and quiet and gave us a few days of peaceful respite from Los Angeles. The weather was crisp and foggy, perfect to curl up with a good Hemingway. We slept soundly, ate wonderfully, and laughed often. We hope to return soon!

The Perfect Home Base

by James on 03/18/2018
This beautiful house was the perfect home base for our spring break vacation. There was something wonderful to do every day. We especially enjoyed the trip to Los Olivos and Solvang (drive up route 154 along the mountains and drive back on route 101 along the coast). Lotusland was fascinating and worth the price of admission. We enjoyed excellent dinners at Toma and Bouchon. Thank you for your hospitality!

One Of The Best Weeks Ever

by Michael on 03/18/2018
Time at Sea Ranch was really wonderful! The beautiful, yet cozy home was so inviting. The garden and grounds were magical. The Montecito area is a new favorite. Your community has been through so much, yet remains friendly, generous, and strong! From our daily swims, beach walks, shopping excursions, surging in Carpinteria, mountain bike rides, and the Rincon Classic '18, to the warm fires, dinners, and family meals at home, we truly had one of the best weeks ever!

Welcoming Vibe

by Gregory on 03/12/2018
This is our second year in a row staying at your lovely home. Thank you for maintaining that homey and welcoming vibe. Right when we walked into the house, we felt at home. The sound of the waves were so relaxing and peaceful. The comfort and sanctuary that this house provides is totally present. If these walls could talk, I'm sure they would have an amazing story to tell. Thank you for keeping the house in it's vintage style. Hope to come back next year!

Beautiful Place

by Robert on 03/09/2018
We so enjoyed our stay in this beautiful place, in this stunning setting. We loved Santa Barbara too. The ocean, the people, the hills!

Completely Satisfied

by Angela on 02/25/2018
A truly beautiful and perfectly maintained property. Panoramic views over the city and  bay.  Absolutely quiet. Spacious rooms, tastefully furnished, fully equipped kitchen with high-end appliances, comfortable beds, all of which will easily  accommodate six guests. We highly recommend this property and look forward to returning. We were completely satisfied with the prompt, kind, effective service from all the staff. Even during the Thomas Fire and subsequent mudslides. We highly recommend this company.

Time Well Spent

by Stephen on 02/19/2018
We are very grateful to have spent a beautiful President's Day weekend in a breathtaking home. The views and weather were spectacular! Time was well spent hiking, exploring, and eating delicious food. The wine was a great added bonus. We hope to return to the Santa Barbara area soon.

Warm & Relaxing

by Andrew on 02/16/2018
Thank you for sharing this wonderful cottage with us. We have stayed in this area many times and love the beaches. This house has been perfect for the two of us. We enjoyed the endless views and proximity to the waves. Your home is warm and relaxing. The front porch served as sitting room plus office, and the living room fire made us lazy at night. We would love to return.

So Amazing

by James on 02/14/2018
We completely LOVED our month in this house, waking up each morning to the beautiful view and Mission bells. So amazing, we never took one day for grated. We are already planning our return next year.

A Great Visit

by John on 02/05/2018
Our visit was for friends and family Super Bowl get together. We enjoyed the layout of the property. The big plus was the four king private rooms. The tall men appreciated that, generally only one king in most rentals. Love all the patio seating and of course the media room was a hit on Super Bowl Sunday! I was born and raised in Santa Barbara, so of course we will be back to visit family. Thanks for a great visit!

Welcoming Vibe

by Blaine on 02/02/2018
Words cannot express the amount of gratitude we have for sharing your amazing home with us. Our family home in Montecito has been uninhabitable since December. We have two little girls that have been moving from hotel to hotel for two months now. This peaceful sanctuary provided us with the calm and "homey" feel that we have been missing. Cooking for my family and falling asleep to the sound of the surf and nourishing our souls has put our minds at ease amongst all the tragedy surrounding us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

A Great Visit

by Gary on 01/13/2018
What a beautiful home! We enjoyed the views, hot tub, and spending time together in such a comfortable space. We were here during the Montecito mudslides, which was quite tragic. Despite the destruction, we were treated to beautiful weather and several spectacular rainbows. We loved Hendry's Beach, Brophy Brothers, Solvang, and The Boathouse. The mission and the courthouse were both beautiful as well. Thanks for a great visit! Can we move in?

A Lovely Stay

by Danny on 01/05/2018
Thank you for a lovely stay. We cooked a lot and the kitchen had everything we needed. We loved sitting around the fire pit and the beds were so comfortable.

A Great Time

by Darra on 01/03/2018
Our family had a great time here! We truly appreciate that you share this beautiful property for many to enjoy.

Perched Over Santa Barbara

by Jennifer on 01/02/2018
This house, perched over Santa Barbara, is something special. After each day's outing, we were so happy to be "home." Close to everything, yet such a peaceful distance from cars and city noise. And so close to that special discovery, Cold Springs Tavern. We went twice for lunch. Thank you for one of the most peaceful and rejuvenating vacations we've ever had.

Absolutely Perfect

by Becky on 01/01/2018
We had an amazing week in Montecito. The highlight of our trip started and finished with our stay at your home. Your home is beautiful and was absolutely perfect in every way! We hope to visit Santa Barbara again in the near future and would love to come back to your home for our next vacation. Thank you for an amazaing vacation and allowing us to be a guest in your home.

The Greatest Time

by Alan on 12/03/2017
Your home is absolutely fabulous! Love the small and wonderful touches. Wandering in the sand and the stars while coming up the stairs. We had a chef come up to cook for us one night. She found everything so easily. The labels are awesome! We were 5 siblings from Chicago to Tucson and we had the greatest time together. Especially enjoying the outdoor spaces. So cool! We've rented many super homes around the country and this home is by far our favorite. We look forward to coming back and enjoying your hospitality again.

Ideal For Outdoor Living

by Leslie on 11/27/2017
We all enjoyed the 80 degree weather in this garden that is ideal for outdoor living! Thank you for keeping Sea Ranch so special, it is a beautiful family home!

Piece Of Heaven

by Josh on 11/26/2017
We loved this piece of heaven and can't wait to come back!

Sunset Pictures

by Jon on 11/26/2017

Amazing Nest

by Teresa on 11/13/2017
Amazing nest from which to fly while celebrating 60 year birthdays and many years of friendship!

Truly A Paradise

by Patty on 11/13/2017
What a wonderful five days our entire family had at Bella Vista! We came to celebrate our son's wedding and this was just perfect for our needs. We played tennis, pickle-ball, and ping pong. We had fires each night, made pizzas in the outdoor pizza oven, swam, went in the hot tub, gathered eggs, and foraged for wonderful salads. Truly a paradise! Next time we will play badminton, bocce, and horseshoes. We also loved meeting Bella. She even brought us a few mouse "gifts" at the back door. Love it! Thanks for helping our family create lasting memories!

Celebrating my 60th with my kids and grandkids. We loved the house and the location. Beautiful spot and beach. Loved the avocado festival, added bonus! We enjoyed Carpinteria, never have been here.

A Respite

by Susan on 10/07/2017
Thank you for sharing your lovely home. It met all of our expectations and gave us a respite from the heat in Arizona. I will miss the view from the kitchen window, the crazy crows, and being able to walk to San Ysidro Ranch (a favorite of ours). We discovered the Karples Manuscript Library by accident. It was a great place! We look forward to returning!

Our Third Time Here

by Christine on 10/01/2017
Our third time here and we will be back! Love how "homey" your beach house is. Our family is so "together" in this setting. Love the beach, the town, and the play times we have. Thank you for your thoughtfulness, that makes everything so easy for us.

Just What The Doctor Ordered

We had an amazing time at Bella Vista! We are a group of friends who rarely get to see each other, coming from Boston to Pasadena, and couldn't have asked for a more beautiful setting to enjoy conversation, fellowship, and relaxation. Life can be so busy, and so hard, these past few days were just what the doctor ordered. Until next time...

by Lynn on 08/31/2017
The moment you enter through the gate Casita Azul feels like a vacation, beginning with the lovely tropical garden. Through the door you will find it has been handsomely designed and thoughtful attention to detail will impress you. Very well organized and equipped, comfortable, and you will feel at home. Loved our time spent here! Location is also a wonderful plus, so close to many places to take advantage of during your visit. Casita Azul is definitely a gem you will enjoy!

Quality & Spaciousness

by Judy on 08/22/2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Montecito, and staying in your wonderful home was a highlight of our time here. We just recently sold our Maui home and like this area so much that we will look for a home to buy in the Santa Barbara area. No doubt it will be hard to match, not only this perfect location, but also the quality and spaciousness of Villa Monte Sereno! Thank you

Thank you for the wonderful stay at Cricket Adobe. The whole family - grandparents, aunts and uncles, little kids - had a great time using this home as a jumping off point for many Santa Barbara adventures and a welcoming spot for family to gather as we celebrate a wedding. A few things we loved: Lotusland (worth the admission $), SB Botanical Garden, Butterfly Beach, Bree'Osh Bakery & Coffee, The Lark for super. And don't miss walking this lovely neighborhood! Hope to see Cricket Adobe again one day!

Great Memories

We had an amazing time, thank you so much for the opportunity to stay here. The home and the views are even better than the photos. We celebrated my 50th birthday here with friends and family!

Beautiful Condo

by Kathryn on 04/14/2017
Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with our family for our son's graduation from Westmont. Just perfect! Enjoyed hiking in the beautiful foothills! Sorry we didn't find this wonderful place four years ago. Thanks again!

Gorgeous Setting

by Larry on 04/02/2017
Such a beautiful, authentic California ranch style house in a gorgeous setting. The mountain views as spectacular as any we have seen in a residential setting. Perhaps we can return next year when we celebrate, God willing, our 50th wedding anniversary. We were married at Our Lady of Mount Caramel Church in Montecito, and now have five grown children and eight grandchildren (some of which were able to visit us and spend time here).


by Mary on 04/01/2017
From the house, mountain and the ocean views could not get much better than this. We'll be back next year!

Lovely Beach House

by Julie on 03/25/2017

Cannot Wait to Rebook

To say that this is a very special property would be the ultimate understatement. If you are passionate about architecture or design, this will be a visit that you will never forget. The flag of Spain once flew over Santa Barbara and if you have ever visited Barcelona or Seville, you will recognize so much of the architecture and style of those cities in Santa Barbara. And if you love the architect Gaudi, the stay at the Ablitt House will thrill you to no end. It is like stepping into a magical painting. There is one full bedroom with a full bath and upstairs there is a sofa that converts to a very comfortable bed, but there is only a ½ bath there. The rooftop is magical and I think a BBQ there would be fantastic. Blair, with Paradise Retreats, did a fantastic job orienting us to the home. Safety and security was an issue for us, but I felt very good being able to put my car in a locked garage every night. There is an additional space for a car outside the home. There are a lot of restaurants and bars that stay open until 2 AM directly around the property. For me, this was part of the appeal. But for anyone seeking a quiet getaway, this property will not provide that opportunity. I cannot wait to re-book when the time is right.

Peaceful Retreat - Family Reunion

What a wonderful spot. We loved playing bocce ball in the yard and relaxing in the shade of the beautiful trees. Walking to the museum and the mission were great too. Our family had a great week here!
