“Great property/great owners”
Reviewed June 10, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

You will not be disappointed! This unit was clean, colorful, and had everything we needed for a terrific weekend stay. We especially enjoyed spending a little quiet afternoon time on the lovely patio area. The location was really to our liking as well; very close to the shops and restaurants on State Street. We never used our car. The owners, Caron and Doug, provide bikes that were in great shape and had necessary lights for our late evening return from the Santa Barbara Bowl concert. Caron and Doug were very welcoming, and we look forward to returning. Caron even emailed me about jewelry I had left behind and then promptly sent it to me by priority mail. What service!

“Downtown Gem”
Reviewed April 23, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed in Casitas de Colores for a quick weekend, and enjoyed it tremendously. The apartment is full of warmth and character, as is the back yard/patio. The kitchen is ready with coffee and cream and cookies, and many things typical rentals don't offer. The owners are very kind warm people, quick with advice and information regarding the local restaurants and events. And you can walk to most of it, as the place is walking distance to everything! Caron showed us her warehouse and the ladies accessories her company produces - loved it! And of course, there is the brave defender of the property, Bootsie! A very nice and friendly canine, perfect when we missed our dog. We certainly will be hoping it's available next time we head down to Santa Barbara!

We stayed for 2 nights in this lovely little place. It is truly unique in style, just such a great feel right when you walk through the door. Caron is very friendly and helpful. We loved the reclining couch after a long day of walking State Street and a day trip to Solvang. Thank you for a great stay Caron & hubby and of course Bootsie

“Better than a Bed and Breakfast”
Reviewed June 9, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We have been coming to Santa Barbara for weekend getaways for many years and always stayed in a B&B. This time we decided to try something different. This little Craftsman bungalow was WONDERFUL! It is not just a B&B room or even a suite, but half a house. Comfortable living room, separate dining room, full kitchen, nice bedroom and full bath, cute front porch. All beautifully remodeled and decorated like it was your own home. Great mattress and bedding. Kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, utensils, condiments, spices, free coffee and half and half. Our hosts Caron and Doug thought of everything. We thought we would miss the free breakfast, but our hosts recommended a breakfast restaurant a few blocks away that was fabulous (Cajun Kitchen). The location was ideal, a block from State Street. Perfect weekend. Just wish we had some friends staying in town to invite over and show the place off. We'll be back.

I just completed my first stay at Casita de Colores and have already made plans to stay again. I've visited several hotel/vacation home options in Santa Barbara and this lovely home, impeccably managed by Caron Miller, tops them all. The interior decorations make it so cozy and the succulent garden is unsurpassed. Caron is a gracious hostess and so welcoming. I highly recommend this property.
