Guestbook comments from the manager

Run, don't walk to Paradise Cottage in Summerland. It lives up to its name in every way. The location is within close proximity to the beach and wonderful restaurants and an easy, quick drive to Santa Barbara, Carpenteria, etc. The home is beautiful, spotlessly clean, and has so many ammenities not offered at other rentals. Extra surprises greeted us when we arrived -- warm brownies, fresh fruit and flowers. We enjoyed an extraordinary week and will return. Sandy, San Jose, CA

home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I've lost count of the number of times our family has returned to Paradise Cottage over the past few years. Our kids just refer to it as "our vacation house" and don't believe us when we tell them it's not really ours! We love knowing a dish of warm brownies and lots of fresh fruit will be waiting for us when we arrive that first day, and throughout the week we are made so comfortable with the little details that always seem to be covered. Many thanks to Francesca and John for all the work they have done to make this such a cozy, beautiful cottage.

Lovely quaint cottage with beautiful views of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is located up on the hill in the town of Summerland. Close by are lovely shops and restaurants, and just a short drive from the Santa Barbara area. The cottage is decorated with a coastal cottage theme, with stunning views of the ocean. A perfect stay for those visiting the Santa Barbara area.

Great location. Well stocked cottage

  • 5 of 5

I was happily surprized that it was bigger than the pictures made it appear. The kitchen table is small , but there is a dining room table that seats 6 comfortably.

I was decorating a wedding cake and found the kitchen to be very well stocked. I had forgotten my candy thermometer and was astonished to find one in a drawer. Yay!!

The fresh flowers were a nice touch as was the milk and fruit in the refrigerator.

We enjoyed sitting on the patio and eating breakfast. It was very private with beautiful plants.

I would definitely book Paradise Cottage again.

Paradise Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Paradise Cottage. Very clean and neat; the kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed breakfasts in the sunny kitchen, on the patio and a final dinner at the generous dining room table. Perfect for four adults, but we made five ladies fit just fine.

Paradise Cottage was fabulous, beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The Paradise Cottage was indeed a Paradise! The 360 views from the patio's , living rm. and Kitchen were amazing. We enjoyed so much outdoor living in the 80 degree weather with views of the ocean, the beautiful succulents, flowers, fountains and lounge chairs. The entire house was so well outfitted with all the necessities and even chocolate by our bedside for a nice treat. We also appreciated the basket of goodies, coffee,& bottled water. We all slept fabulous! Eddie and Francesca were excellent hosts. Thank you for a lovely vacation. Santa Barbara is so charming!!- We loved it . All our best , The Graf's
