“As charming, restful and colorful as it looks”
Reviewed 11 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We stayed for 5 nights last week in this fantastic (and quiet) cottage. The highlights: it was spotless, well-designed and fabulously decorated (with great bath products and comfy robes). We ended up cooking a bit and although the kitchen is small, it was just fine for the 2 of us. Now about Caron & Doug....they couldn't have been better hosts (their assistant Brittany was a real help also when they weren't there). They loaned us a large pot for cooking a very large crab and made themselves available without ever being intrusive. They invited us for wine/cheese on the patio one evening with their friends. All in all it was exactly what we were looking for. If we're back in Santa Barbara again, this is the 1st place I'd look for another stay. Thank you again Caron & Doug!

“We loved the location, the owners and the place”
Reviewed 1 April 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Married couple with 23 yr old son (we shipped our airbed ahead) stayed for a week. Everything worked (laundry, appliances, comfy beds ands eating, shower/bath) as if we were in our own home. The location proximity to upper State Street and Hwy 101 was ideal. Parking was easy with permit parking. Doug and Caron were ideal hosts - helpful, welcoming, generous. The garden - for a picnic lunch or reading a book with a glass of wine was an ideal place to unwind. We will definitely return.

“Caron & Doug's Casita Exceeded Expectations”
Reviewed 15 November 2011 for a stay in November 2011

I stayed at the Casita for a week. The 1 br. apartment was the perfect size for me and would be great for a couple. Some highlights: a very deep bathtub, where you can really relax; the patio garden with its twinkling lights; the easy walk to downtown and car access to the rest of SB; and the firm bed. Also, only a 2 block walk to SB Yoga Studio, which has lots of classes. So .. great place. But there's more...Doug & Caron, the warm and helpful hosts. They connected me to Santa Barbara, so by the end of the week, I'd had a great massage, found a special yoga teacher, knew where to find groceries etc. Also no road noise.
*Used Mapquest for directions, so hosts did not need to provide. Very Clean.
