Long New Years Weekend visit

4,2 sur janvier 07, 2016

Lovely, quiet and cozy cottage. Enjoyed our room, hot tub on the patio, breakfast, and late afternoon wine. Restful stay and great coffee joint around the corner. Would stay here again if we get back to Santa Barbara.

Perfect stay

4,8 sur décembre 30, 2015

What can we say? Dominique is amazing: the perfect host! She is kind, funny, welcoming and effortlessly sets the energy of her space! In addition, we were greeted by a cozy room, delicious breakfast (and wine/hors d'oeuvres), and a quiet, relaxing ambiance. We came to Secret Garden Inn and Cottages for a couple days over the Christmas holiday, and could not have asked for a better experience. The best vacations feel like you are getting away, yet, at one in the same time, feel at home. We'll be back!

Lovely place to get away!

Secret Garden was delightful! I came to get away from L.A. for a couple of days. The rooms are quaint and cozy. The service is lovely. Dominique was a wonderful hostess.

3 Day Birthday Weekend Getaway

4,6 sur octobre 27, 2015

Had the most WONDERFUL 3 Days here...everything was perfect, I had the best 50th birthday weekend. The owner went beyond the call of duty when my fiancé had over a 100 red roses delivered to our room ahead of time and she put them in vases all over our little cottage. She was very sweet and thoughtful for doing that. We stayed in the Woodthrush Cottage, it was very quaint and private and we absolutely loved the hot tub. There was a fridge, but with there was a microwave too. The AC worked great and the King Size bed was super comfortable...we would totally stay here again!! Kudos...

True Hospitality from a World Class staff

5 sur octobre 15, 2015

Parking, Wifi. Breakfast, Evening Reception: Included! Hospitality inspired by true passion. Dominique and her team have lived in and travelled the globe; they understand more than most what a vacation stay should be. Parlez-vous français? Profiter d'une belle conversation avec Dominique! Enter a world of beautiful and colorful plants and flowers. A Victorian style home with architecture and craftsmanship from the early 1900's awaits you upon check in. There are individual cottages throughout the property with unique features on the interior and exterior. Our room was large and comfortable with a wonderful bay window. Windows that actually opened to let the fresh air in! On the deck there was a great hot tub that we took advantage of on both nights of our stay. The privacy and night sky view was incredible. We enjoyed fruits, wines, cheeses, breads and more; great Hors d'oeuvres to start our evening with. A nice outdoor dining area with plenty of tables and chairs for everyone in a tree lined garden oasis. Breakfast is served individually. Not buffet style and not with heat lamps and the like. The freshest fruits, breads and the tastiest scones youll ever find. Chilled juices, fresh hot coffees and your choice of teas. The grand finale is Dominique’s Fabulous Omelette. She puts some special love and magic into these and the result is just amazing. We discovered later that she is actually well known in the area for this! If you are into loud parties at night, do not care for privacy, peace and quiet, do not enjoy historic craftsmanship, nor understand the concept of true hospitality, this may not be the place for you. This is not a Motel 6, so class and respect for the hard work of this team goes a long way. Thank you Domique and team for a great experience!

We stayed at the Oriole Cottage for two nights, with our dog, Daisy. It was comforatable, quiet and clean, though could have used a larger closet.

Nice stay

3,2 sur août 17, 2015

Very comfortable accommodation and friendly staff. A 20 min walk to restaurants. Nice beach in Santa Barbara 10 min drive away.

Average B & B

2,6 sur août 17, 2015

Pros: Stay was in a private cottage with A/C. Proximity to State Street - dining/shopping/etc. Cons: Old bed, bedding, daybed. A little TLC would go a long way to upgrading the appearance and feel of the place. Old doesn't always mean poor condition, but in this case much of the place looked tired and worn. Many window screens appeared broken. Ants in bathroom. Ended up in my toothbrush, on the washcloths, etc. Had to go into main house to get bug spray. I wouldn't stay here again unless it was remodeled.

Going back the next time we travel to Santa Barbara!

5 sur juillet 01, 2015

Quiet and off the beaten track of downtown S.B. You can walk around the neighborhood or walk to downtown. The breakfasts were delicious!
