My husband and I spent a weekend in Santa Barbara. The location is good - very close to a wonderful coffee shop ( It's a Grind) and fabulous icecream ( McConnell's). It's about 20 minute walk to action on State Street. We walked everywhere even late at night with no problems. The breakfast was fabulous & healthy , all fresh and homemade. We enjoyed talking with the owner, Dominique as our son goes to school in France. The late afternoon wine and cheese was fun and we chatted with other guests then. Our room (Kingfisher) was small but adequate and we loved the hot tub. Overall a good value and location to enjoy Santa Barbara.

Charming place! Parking is easy. Park on the street or there is parking in back. I stayed in the Nightingale suite. It's one master bedroom with a fireplace, a smaller bedroom with a sofa bed, flat screen TV, a bathroom and a private patio with a jacuzzi. The master bedroom was a decent size and the bed was really comfortable. The fireplace was the only source of heat and it did a really good job of keeping me warm throughout the night, that and the cozy flannel sheets. The smaller bedroom also had a fridge in it, where we stored champagne. Within a closet in the smaller room, they included two bathrobes and extra towels for the jacuzzi. The jacuzzi was good except that the lights did not work and the heat seemed to drop a little, it stayed at 97, although I had turned it up to 102. Although I did not take advantage of it, they offer wine and cheese at 5 pm. I did take advantage of the tea they offer at 7 pm and onward. I did not indulge in the brownies they offered but looking back, I should have. To get these things, you need to go through the main house. It's also where you check-in and check-out of. The main house is decorated in beautiful paintings, has a piano and there's an adorable cat that lives there! Breakfast is served in the main house and Dominique (the owner) had put out scones, quiche, coffee, fresh bread... The breakfast was really good. The scones were fantastic. I really liked this place. It's really beautiful and charming and the service was really great. If I'm back in the area, I know where to stay.

Dominique is a great host, and her food is excellent, much of which is home made by herself. Originally we went here because she takes dogs, but now I would stay here any time I could, great value for money, private jacuzzies, cute garden setting, close to down town, and interesting guests.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Secret Garden provides a charming alternative to the faceless chain hotels where my wife and I often stay, The owner instantly made us feel at home and the homemade French breakfasts were really appreciated. A B&B should not be expected to have all the amenities of a regular hotel (pool, workout area, etc.) and the Secret Garden is not an exception. However, we found the tradeoff well worth it when considering our overall experience.

My girlfriend and I decided to try a weekend getaway in Santa Barbra for our 1-year anniversary. We found the Secret Garden Inn and chose it for our place to stay. It was very nice, cozy homelike atmosphere with a friendly helpful staff. We enjoyed meeting the other guests and chatting with them during the collective morning breakfasts. The breakfasts were delicious, French cuisine that exceeded our expectations. The 5:00 wine and cheese hour was wonderful as well with a nice patio to enjoy the treats with a scenic, quaint backyard view. The room was spartan (ours was called the "Garden Room" I believe, and others I imagine are different), clean and comfortable. My only real complaint is there was no refrigerator in the room and the ones in the main area were completely full. It made it so we chose not to visit the farmer's market we were interested in since we had no way to keep any produce or other food fresh and no way to keep ice or take leftovers from a dinner for a midnight snack. I think the patrons of Secret Garden Inn would do well to invest $50-75 on a dorm-sized fridge for the room we and any other that doesn't have one. Otherwise, a great place to stay when visiting Santa Barbara.

It was a pleasure staying as a guest of Mme. Hannaux (Dominique) in Santa Barbara. The bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom (including a claw-foot tub) was clean, modern and accommodating, the full breakfast (fresh quiche every morning with fruit and artisan breads & croissants) was consciously prepared and served every morning. Friendly cat, fresh-baked brownies at the end of the day, gorgeous patio on which to enjoy meals under a huge, spreading persimmon tree, gracious hostess. Like being in a French country cottage. Definitely will return.
