“Like Staying with a Good Friend”
Reviewed July 17, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My two 20-something daughters and I stayed here this past week for three nights and found that all the glowing reviews were absolutely true. You could not book a better room with a better experience! The owners, Joy and Sam, were like old friends, pampering us with their incredible hospitality and making sure that we had everything we needed--whether it had to do with our room or with our activities. The room is not just a room, but a suite that accommodated 3 female adults without crowding issues or fighting over dressing space. The sumptuous and filling continental breakfast brought to the room each morning at a time we specified was a much appreciated included extra. Joy and Sam not only provided all kinds of tourist information (brochures, menus, tide tables, etc.) above and beyond what a hotel would provide but also included their suggestions (when solicited) based on their personal experiences--including the best ways of getting around. If you want to visit Santa Barbara and feel like a good friend is pampering you, plan to stay at Paradise Found. We will definitely recommend it to others and will be returning ourselves.

“Greater than Exellent”
Reviewed July 7, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We spend our last week of our vacation as a guests of Joy and Sam. Never meet such a hospitality before. With very helpful advises and suggestions what to see/visit and how, they did everything to make our stay comfortable. I do suggest from the bottom of my heart.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

What a wonderful stay!!! Joy and Sam are natural "inn keepers" helpful, kind and warm. The room is beautiful better than the pictures, the grounds peaceful and relaxing. The breakfast (served at your door, at what ever time you request) is delicious and healthy. I wish we could have stayed longer. And the art in their home and the room inspiring and beautiful. You can not go wrong staying here and the price is so fair for what they provide. We highly recommend Paradise and Breakfast Too!!!!! We will be back!

“Just like home”
Reviewed April 27, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Our stay and Joy and Sam's house was so comfortable and easy. The suite is so cute! Clean, cozy, comfortable and has everything you need - mini fridge, filtered water heater, towel warmer - you name it. Breakfast in the morning was splendid! Warm pastries, delicious fruit, yogurt, and freshly squeezed orange juice all prepared at whatever time you need. Joy and Sam are such pleasant people. They clearly enjoy having guests and strike the right balance between getting to know you and allowing you to go on your way. I would definitely stay here again!

“Paradise Found is more than a name”

people found this review helpful

We were greeted as we pulled in the drive by Sam, who made us immediately feel as though we were arriving at a close friends home. He and Joy were truly a pleasure. The accomdations were very nice, comfortable and clean. Their home was uniquely decorated by some of their own work. They were more than happy to share interesting stories but also to provide all the privacy desired. Breakfast was fantastic, with fresh fruit and hot fresh pastries. We have already begun to recommend Paradise Found....

“The Best!!!”

The room was the best. Joy and Sam were the best. We didn't take breakfast the first morning and we were sorry for that when Sam had made us breakfast the 2nd morning. They were a pleasure to stay with and was great for my first time booking like this. Looking forward to staying with them again next year!
