I followed the advice from Trip Advisor contributors and booked this lovely place right in the best location in Santa Barbara and I wasn't disappointed. Dan was very patient with my questions and very helpful with directions to the Santa Barbara Bowl. Although our room backed on a busy street, the windows kept the noise to a minimum and sleeping was easy as the traffic dissipated about 9 pm. Our room made us feel like we were in Provence and so did the breakfast! Super fresh coffee and pastry. The attention to detail here was extraordinary and appreciated. We loved taking a walk to Stearns Pier which is just down the street. A lovely experience!
