We were greeted at the gate with a “Joyful” Happy Birthday!! Welcomed like old friends into Joy and Sam’s home and yet given our space and privacy as well. Breakfast tray was beautiful, complete with a candle on the morning of my 60th. Fresh fruit, yogurt, delicious croissants, juice ...hit the spot! Beds were very comfortable and they anticipated anything you could possibly have needed. Very clean and spacious-great location in quiet neighborhood. Don’t miss out on this delight!
Joy and Sam made our stay so comfortable and enjoyable, we definitely didn’t want to leave. The room is so lovely and we looked forward to our breakfast delivery each morning. The house is wonderfully located so it’s easy to get anywhere in town but out of the way enough to be tranquil when you get “home”.
This is truly a paradise found in Santa Barbara. There are many things that were wonderful. 1) Joy & Sam, they are absolutely amazing. They are the hosts from Heaven. They take such good care of you and they are so much fun. We were 3 girls in their 20s and we couldn't feel safer and more attended to. 2) the room is the most cozy and beautiful thing I've ever seen. It was very private (own section of the house) and was very big, well decorated, and the beds were extremely comfortable. There's even a coffee machine, and a fridge in there with filtered water. What can you ask for more? 3) The Location was perfect. It was a 5$ Uber ride to pretty much everywhere. We did have a car and that was nice as well (there's an extra parking spot). They have amazing recommendations on where to have fun, where the best food is, and where the best drinks are!
All in all, we will all want to go back to Santa Barbara and we all want to keep in touch with these 2 wonderful people!
It is a must.. worth every penny!!!
Joy and Sam are wonderful hosts! It was a pleasure to stay in their private suite on vacation. They keep their home clean and it is clear they think very much about the satisfaction of their guests.
This was the first time my mom and I have been to Santa Barbara. Joy and Sam helped us navigate the area with ease! There are several beautiful beaches within a short distance and the nearby food is excellent.
I would without a doubt go back again to enjoy the great area and great company!
Spacious suite with views, privacy in this beautiful home and setting, enjoyed huge double bathroom, great shower, amenities. Excellent location. Joy and Sam are so cordial and welcoming in all regards. This was our first booking in a home 'vacation rental,' glad it was here! Note: suitcases have to be carried up a few short flight of stairs.
Joy and Sam are wonderful hosts. Their home is nestled up the hill, close to downtown and the beach but also quiet and tranquil. The suite is huge with a great bed and it's own bathroom, everything is spotlessly clean. Breakfast is delightful and delivered daily to the door with warm pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt and juice. Joy and Sam are very knowledgeable and happy to share information and recommendations that the tourist books might not contain. Plus their home is full of beautiful photographs and cool sculptures. Will definitely go back.
My wife and I found "Paradise Found" on Trip Advisor and booked it immediately after reading some great reviews. I can only add that those reviews were on target. The location of the B&B was perfect, between the hills and the shore, just a short distance to all of the activities on Main Street and in the Funk zone. We were greeted by Joy who made us feel right at home and led us to a spacious and lovely room with an adjoining bathroom. A good night Sleep was easy to attain as the surrounding were very quiet. A pleasant surprise awaited us in the morning as a knock on the door alerts you to a morning breakfast of fresh fruit, juice, yogurt and warm popovers or croissants. Truly a delight!.
