Location! Location! Location!
We had a fantastic weekend at this property and it was the perfect private house/yard for our dog, who felt right at home. We started each morning with a walk to the nearby coffee shop and walked to get ice cream at night. The house was great for our family of four and we enjoyed having a space all to ourselves not too far from the center of Santa Barbara. Highly recommend!
Jan 2024

The Location is Amazing!!
We left Phoenix at 119° to arrive at Santa Barbara with a cool 72° forecast. The deck was our hangout at the house. Very private and lush. The house was well stocked with everyday items. This location is amazing for ease of getting around. The off street parking is a must in Santa Barbara. We will definitely be back for another stay.
Jul 2023
Spectacular Home!!!
We had a wonderful time in a truly spectacular home!!! The house is absolutely beautiful, the private front yard and back yard were enjoyed by all, the plants and trees added privacy and a lovely atmosphere to sit back, breathe, and relax. The kitchen and all its amenities are very well thought out - it had everything we needed. We are so thankful to have found this place for our stay in Santa Barbara. One of our best vacations ever!
Jun 2023
Amazing Place!
This was a perfect house for our family vacation. Our 2 year old had a great and safe time playing in the fully enclosed yard. The yard and landscape is the best we have seen! We will be back.

We Would Love to Stay Here Again!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay in this cozy bungalow stocked with all the amenities you could possibly need. Even the bathroom towels were luxurious and plush! We would love to stay here again if our future plans bring us back to Santa Barbara. Thank you!

Wish we could have stayed longer !! Great location. Home is very comfortable.
Mar 2023
We loved that our dog was welcomed!
We loved the neighborhood, the vibe, the accessibility by walking to amenities, our dog was welcomed,. Our month stay made us realize it just wasn't enough time! The weather was almost always sunny, and except one torrential rainy day, we just put on a rain coat and hiked or biked in comfortable weather. Oh, the ocean , the hills, the art, the wine,did I forget the wine? Only 1 day out of the month we stayed in but for 29; so it was perfect.
Feb 2023
We were delighted!
We were delighted by the house and the communication with VR!
Jan 2023
We can't wait to return!
We loved our stay here! The location was ideal for both downtown activities and getting to the ocean and the mountain biking trails. The property managers were incredibly prompt and communicative. And the home is spotless with everything we needed. We can't wait to return.
Jan 2023
I overall loved the property and felt at home!
I stayed here for my wedding and honeymoon and choose this house because I loved the tropical feel of the backyard and how it had two different rooms that were far enough away for privacy. The backyard ended up being my favorite place to spend time while we were at the house! It's in a great location, I walked to The Daily Grind coffee shop every morning. It's a short Uber ride downtown as well. We had a small issue with a clogged drain in the master bedroom shower and I reached out via text to the team and they responded right away and had someone fix it the next day. The check in process was really easy and check out was even easier! I overall loved the property and felt at home and comfortable right away and like I said I didn't want to leave the backyard! I'd stay here again 100%! Thanks to the team for making it a great experience!

Fantastic Stay!
Everything was fantastic, top to bottom. Can't recommend enough!

Beautiful Santa Barbara Home
This house is an ideal place to stay when in Santa Barbara. Beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces, pet friendly, and restaurants within walking distance. It's a short drive to all the main spots to visit.
Oct 2022

We loved the house, the palm-shaded garden, and the proximity to State St. Great, relaxing experience that met all our needs.

Beautiful Santa Barbara Craftsman Cottage
The property is lovely and very nicely decorated. We spent evenings on the back porch and enjoyed walking to the coffee shop a block away in the morning
Aug 2022
Everything was Top Notch!
My family and I have stayed at more than a dozen rentals over 10 years and this Mission Bungalow has been the nicest. From cleanliness to kitchen necessities, everything was top notch! Only tip of the line products were used. Great linens. Name brand paper products . You will feel the quality
Aug 2022
Very Happy with our stay!
Very happy with our stay at the Bath St. Bungalow. Open concept from living room to large kitchen. The landscaping made the front and backyard feel secluded. Plenty of seating on the back deck. Viki, from Vacation Rentals of Santa Barbara, was very nice and helpful. Would visit again.
Jun 2022
Great Stay in SB!
This property is exactly as advertised. Feels larger than it is and was a great stay in SB. Walkable to a lot of stuff
May 2022
We were really so impressed!
A friend, my dog and I stayed at this house for 3 nights. A “get out of LA” hiking excursion. The house is bigger than the pictures suggest. The property has a beautiful, shaded garden that is fully fenced in front and back. The two bedrooms are at opposite sides of the hallway, offering privacy. Each room has a bathroom available to it. Kitchen was well equipped and everything was is good shape, although we didn’t really cook. The house and grounds were immaculate. The heater worked well. The two, large TVs were easy to use and offered premium cable channels. The property is well-thought-out. The beds and linens were very comfortable. We were really so impressed! One warning for people who are very sensitive to outdoor sound - it is on a busy street. Most of that noise is blocked by high fencing and vegetation. It has its own, generous parking area in the rear of the property. I look forward to staying here again.
Mar 2022
Fabulous location!
Fabulous location. Walking distance to state street and of course local ice creams. This place is so marvelously landscaped they it's a totally private oasis from and back while being in the middle of everything. Our two standard poodles loved the back and front totally private fenced-in yards. We enjoyed lunches on the back patio. And countless walks from the front door around the calm neighborhood. Easy parking behind the house. Thank you!
Jan 2022

Own Private Paradise!
This house was so much better than we expected. The check-in instructions were a breeze. Walking onto the property was like walking into your own private paradise. The house was so nice and clean. The overall feel of the place was so homie. My kids loved playing in the front and back yards and i felt so comfortable letting them explore. We would definitely recommend this place and I will being booking this place again next year.

A Great Find!
Santa Barbara is our getaway from the San Diego area and we've visited many times over the years, staying in various SB neighborhoods. Mission Bungalow was just perfect for our stay. Great, easy access location to everything, beautifully remodeled home with all of the amenities, perfect floor plan for two couples. It's apparent the owners have taken great attention to detail making sure no stone was left unturned. The property is completely fenced, private and beautifully landscaped. Not to mention, Vacation Rentals of Santa Barbara was so easy to work with and we appreciated the easy communication and follow-up! We loved it and will return!
Oct 2021
Lovely SB Stay!
Darling house with everything you could possibly need supplied from tin foil to shampoo and the washer & dryer were an extra bonus. Very comfortable and the bed was incredible

Very Well Equipped Vacation Rental.
Lovely outdoor area; two comfortable bedrooms, and two baths, all clean and ready to use. Also, great to have two parking spaces. I would return in a minute.
Jul 2021
Birthday Weekend
The property is tucked into a great little neighborhood just Northwest of State Street. The yard is surrounded by fencing and jasmine bushes, so it is extremely private. It feels like you are in an oasis in the middle of the city. If you have dogs they will love it! A great little coffee place is right around the corner as well as an ice cream shop and restaurants. Such a great place to unwind and relax at after a day at the beach (5-15 min drive depending on the beach). I would absolutely book this place again in the future!
Jun 2021
Great location and A Very Nice Home
All the comforts of home in a nice setting!

Great Bungalow For Our Small Family!
We had a ton of fun in this home. My kids loved exploring the luscious yard, we had several meals on the spacious deck, and we enjoyed walking to get ice cream in the evenings and breakfast in the mornings. The inside of the house was clean, modern, and well appointed. I would recommend this place.
Jun 2021
Lovely Home

Three lovely days in Santa Barbara
The Mission Bungalow was perfect for our three-day weekend. Lovely and warm two bedroom cottage, walking distance to town, a great coffee place only one block away (The Daily Grind), and a fenced-in yard for our two dogs. Easy access to the freeway and a short drive to the Hendry dog beach and the Douglas Family Preserve, which our dogs always love. We highly recommend this house!
Mar 2021

Great Location!
This home is perfectly located just a five minute drive to the beach and a five minute walk to local restaurants and coffee shops. It is exactly as pictured and we thoroughly enjoyed the back deck with the BBQ. Another plus is this house is air-conditioned and although, it's not necessary very often due to the temperate year-round Santa Barbara weather, it was good to have at night while we were sleeping. We loved this house and we had a wonderful vacation. The desk area in the kitchen and the high speed wifi enabled us to work while we were there too. We would definitely stay here again.

Cute and Private
“Cute and private place that is close to everything in Santa Barbara, kid and pet friendly. Highly recommend.”

Excellent week in Santa Barbara
Mission Bungalow was a wonderful base for a week in Santa Barbara. The house is scrupulously clean and up to date. The outdoor space is large and surprisingly secluded for a city setting. Our dog was so happy to have a safe, fenced area to explore. The location made it pleasant to stroll to dinners on State Street. The rental company representatives were responsive and helpful.

The Perfect House
This house was perfect for our weekend getaway to SB! The house was extremely clean, well-appointed and comfortable the four adults and one almost-5 month old baby. A kitchen and washer/dryer are must when traveling with a little one. The kitchen was updated and very clean and the washer/dryer was located conveniently adjacent to the kitchen. Also, the beds were extremely comfortable and the bed linens were soft. The house has been decorated in a stylish way. This house more then met our expectations! Thank you!

Great communication with the responsive host and we really appreciated the late check out. I highly recommend this vacation rental!”
