“Better than a Bed and Breakfast”

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.

How easy was key pickup/access to the property?

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.

1) After staying in this lovely home I will never stay in a Santa Barbara hotel again.
2) We enjoyed being within walking distance to some excellent restaurants.
3) Excellent place to relax and enjoy the area.
4) Enjoyed having a nice view of the garden area.
5) PERFECT size home for one or two individuals.

“Enchanting”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

My husband rented this place for me for my birthday and our first visit to Santa Barbara. It was absolutely awesome!!! Caron and Doug, the owners were wonderful and extremely helpful. The unit was beautifully decorated, and the courtyard simply enchanting. Every detail was impeccably addressed. The unit was a short walk to the happenings on State Street. It was cozy, and a much better experience then staying at a hotel. We would go back in a heartbeat, and because of how much we enjoyed our stay there, we are more likely to seek out more accomodations like this in the future.
