Caron Miller & Doug Beard
Caron and Doug are fabulous hosts and details are very important to them. They have received nothing but rave reviews on the Casitas rentals and all that is offered to their guests. Caron is the owner/designer of a women's accessories company and Doug is an Architect. Casitas de Colores emits both of their love and talents.
Caron and Doug chose this property because of it's fabulous location right downtown and near the beach. It's really in the heartland of the active part of Santa Barbara which includes theater, great dining, wonderful museums and shopping. From their location, you really don't need a car. The neighborhood is very safe and quiet.
Other unique benefits of the property include walking distance to the beach 1.5 miles. There is also a free local trolley that takes you up and down State Street to the pier. Casitas de Colores is located 8 minutes from the airport and 1 mile from the train station.
Casitas de Colores boasts a beautiful succulent garden where you can lounge, read, and enjoy the plants and water features in the cozy furniture. The grounds and accommodations are impeccably clean and the high standards kept by the owners are what make this place so special.
