Wish all my experiences were like this
Great place. Use to live in SB and this is an amazing location. Close to state street but quiet. And close to highway if you want to access other parts or towns. Place was great. People were above and beyond. Wish all my experiences were like this.

Best Airbnb I have stayed at in a while!
Best Air Bnb I have stayed at in a while! This home was even nicer than I expected. Clean, beautiful and modern. Added bonus that there is a driveway, and key-less entry makes your arrival nice and easy. Great location close to lots of things in Santa Barbara. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

Perfect fit, well stocked, and great location!
This cottage was a perfect fit for our group (4 adults and 2 kids)! We were so impressed with how well stocked the property was - plenty of towels, great kitchen, washer/dryer, etc. Everything was very comfortable! The location was perfect - central to State St. and great restaurants. It was an incredibly easy check-in/check-out. We couldn't have been happier - everything went smoothly!

Adorable house, perfect location
There is nothing I can say bad about this property. Very clean, in a walkable location, and easy parking.

Very comfortable home with all amenities included
We had a wonderful stay in the home. It had plenty of room for us (3 adults) and we enjoyed the beautiful weather in the lovely private backyard setting. We could walk most places in town and got in a lot of steps! We will definitely consider renting the home again on our next trip to Santa Barbara. Thank you!

A home away from home!
Curley Cottage was our home away from home. We were in Santa Barbara for my daughter's maxillofacial surgery. The home was outfitted with everything we needed post-surgery including a great kitchen with a blender and two recliners! We stayed for 5 weeks and after the initial recovery, we thoroughly enjoyed walking to shops, restaurants, grocery stores, drug stores, museums, and theaters. We even walked to the Funk Zone and beach. We were just blocks from the Doctors office which was also convenient. My husband was able to work remotely and it was nice to have the front porch, backyard and upstairs bedroom for phone calls. I would love to come back and stay at Curly Cottage again under better circumstances.

Great place to stay - walking distance to most of Santa Barbara!
This property was well cared for and had everything we need for our 6 night stay. The washer dryer was a godsend for the 4 of us. The back garden was quiet and tranquil as was the area in which the property sits. Thoroughly recommend this property for 2 couples or a family of 4. Only suggestion I have is that the mattresses need replacing.

Walk to State Street from the Curley Cottage
Wonderful 2 bedroom and 2 Bath location with an easy walk to State street. The Kitchen is well equipped with everything needed like your home kitchen. The check in process is simple. Access the home with a keypad, although check out is early at 10am. The home is located off an alley with a driveway to fit one care. The home experience could have been better if the WiFi connection was stronger. WiFi originated from the living room but signal strength dropped to 0.4 Mbps at the Master Bedroom and almost at similar strength from the 2nd Bedroom, so there was really zero connection outside the living/dining area. Overall a great cottage. I hope changes are made to the WiFi (easy upgrade). Would definitely stay here again!
