Home was well stocked and was recently and beautifully decorated. We liked walking around the town of Summerland with its many antique stores. Unfortunately the noise from highway 101 is quite loud, especially with the windows open due to no air conditioning. We were able to walk to the beach although the hills are quite steep. The weekend we were there, an oil seep had contaminated the beach so we went down to Carpinteria for our beach day.
