My family of 3 couples rented the Captains Cottage in Summerland for a wedding at the Santa Barbara Zoo in October. This was a fun place to stay. The nautical theme with numerous seaworthy knick knacks made the place feel like a real vacation. The location close to the beach was perfect. Although, guests have to deal with a bit... More

I have rented three of the Santa Barbara Cottages. Jasmine, Paradise and Ecalyptus Hill. Each was lovely, beautifully furnished, views of the ocean. Jasmine and Paradise are in Summerland, an adorable town. Eucalyptus is up on Eucalyptus Hill, charming, charming. The kind owner greeted me with homemade brownies each time, and thinks of every touch to make you feel at... More

I have stayed in a dozen homes rented from online sites. No hostess compares to Francesca. Brownies and fruit on the kitchen counter, champagne, soda, butter, & milk in the fridge, full-size bottles of shampoo, conditioner, lotion & soap in the bathrooms, chocolates on the pillows. And, my favorite, the toilet paper. I know this seems simple and silly, but... More

We were blessed with perfect weather during our recent stay. The ocean views and decks are fabulous. The location provides great access to Santa Barbara and points of interest around the Central Coast. We have been renting from VRBO for the past 6 years, and this was the best furnished home, with great amenities to make you feel at home.... More

My girlfriends and I rented Jasmine Cottage for a long weekend when we were down from Sacramento running the Santa Barbara Marathon. We could not have been more pleasantly surprised and grateful for such a darling little cottage. It was spotlessly clean as if it were the residence of the manager herself and we were immediately relaxed and smiling ear... More

Every year we reserve Francesca's Paradise Cottage for our 6 week winter getaway from cold and snowy Michigan. The first time we stayed we were so pleased that it was exactly as pictured on the web and perfect for our needs. The cottage itself is cozy and well appointed--we use the kitchen a lot and it is fully equipped and... More

It is an enormous honor to be able to welcome back guests year after year. I realize that if you have never been to a vacation rental, you don't know what to expect and that it can be highly variable depending on the owner. However, we do everything possible to make your visit like a "home away from home" experience... More

This is an exceptional property in a perfect location for exploring the Santa Barbara area. The cottage is sunny, spacious, inviting, and impeccable -- from the moment we walked in the door, we felt relaxed and welcome. The kitchen is stocked with all the essentials and much more, there are tons of towels in the bathroom, both bath and beach,... More

For our first trip to Santa Barbara, we stayed at the Captain's Cottage for a week this summer and loved it. The house is not for folks who can't do stairs; but if you can, it is oh so worth it. The master suite in the upper level was amazing. Tried to figure out how to bring it home with... More

We are still savoring our experience in Paradise cottage, which we visited for the first time. We have stayed at your neighboring Jasmine cottage many times. We couldn't imagine anything could be better than Jasmine, but Paradise was a wonderful surprise -- an inviting indoor / outdoor floor plan and every bit as charming, cozy and spotless.
