“Great place and great location!”
Reviewed June 6, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The apartment was really nice and Grace and Scott were extremely responsive and helpful. The stroll downtown is pleasant and there are also some nice spots in the neighborhood.

“Great place to enjoy Santa Barbara!”

This apartment provides everything you need to take in the best of Santa Barbara. Located in a neighborhood setting, it's a short walk to the Mission, coffee shops, restaurants and the many downtown attractions. The apartment offers privacy, a separate bedroom area and kitchenette, and an outdoor patio for relaxation. Grace is a concierge-level hostess with many tips to enrich your stay. It is firmly on our list of favorites!

We chose The Uptown Garden Apartment based on TripAdvisor reviews and were quite pleased. Grace was very accommodating and thoughtful. The apartment was extremely clean, well organized, and in a great central location to Santa Barbara attractions. Grace provided a delightful Welcome Basket filled with healthy treats and valuable local information. We put The Uptown Garden Apartment on our Excellent List of places to stay in Santa Barbara. Thank you Grace and Scott for your lovely hospitality.

“Exceeded our expectations”

This updated, clean, and well-equipped apartment exceeded our expectations. Grace was super-nice and accommodating with our last minute plans. The apartment is located in a safe, quiet neighborhood that allowed us to easily walk to uptown Santa Barbara and the Old Mission. The private patio let us unwind at the end of the day while we enjoyed the fabulous SB weather and wine. We will certainly stay here again on our next visit to Santa Barbara.

Everything we need was working distance. Scott and Grace are very nice couple. They are very caring and thoughtful. Everything we need were in the room. All ketchen equipment, plates, utensils, bath amenities and you name it. It was very cozy place and heart warming to stay. We are already planing back to this place!
