My small family stayed in the Anacapa villa for an extended weekend and had an excellent experience. The location of Villa Elegante can't be beat. Just steps away from the beach and very close to all of the wonderful Santa Barbara attractions. Our villa was beautiful with two large bedrooms and en suite bathrooms, a large livingroom with fireplace that...

We recently returned from Santa Barbara, where we had a very pleasant and comfortable stay at Villa Elegante. The beautiful beach is a very short walk and there is a grocery store near by where we could buy anything we needed. The kitchen is well equipped. This would be our top choice to stay next time!

We live in Northeast Ohio and need to get away from the snow and cold for a while in the winter months. We have been to many places in both Florida and the California coast. We find that Southern California has the best combination of weather, restaurants, shopping and attractions. We have coming back to Santa Barbara and Villa Elegante...
