About David Bolton
I grew up in Santa Barbara, and appreciate the beauty and history that this town offers. I have also travelled all over the world, and after staying in a multitude of hotels, I am commited to making your visit at Casitas Vista la Riviera enjoyable and at a top quality level.
David Bolton purchased this Studio in 1999
Why David Bolton chose Laguna
I fell in love with the property based on its location and potential. An original 1919 Craftsman house, I have spent the past 13 years rebuilding and expanding as a historic reconstruction. Keeping the historic charm but also adding the conveniences and cleaniness of a modern property.
What makes this Studio unique
Stunning views of the Santa Barbara Riviera, and a steady ocean breeze make for a relaxing stay. Once here, you will see why I have choosen this property and why we work hard to make your visit memorable.

I liked this property and would stay there again. Clean and comfortable. Would have to go back to the listing to see a few things, like if smoking is allowed. One of our neighbors smoked a cigar and the smell was AWFUL! Also, our bathroom window looked out over the trash cans, piled to overflowing with plastic trash bags. Maybe it's me, but the t.v. was not user-friendly. As "Cox" flashed on the screen, it said, "Hit any button on remote for t.v.," I hit every button, and "Cox" kept staring at me from the screen. The bedspread seemed well-worn. Sure hope it's laundered between guests. And, speaking of laundry, where was it? The notebook left for guests didn't mention it, but it was written about on the website. I agree with another guest's review that the bathroom could use a larger rug than just the bath mat. And the bathroom door is squeaky,. No biggie. . . but it's the attention to details that separates a good VRBO from a GREAT one. Again, I would happily stay there my next trip to Santa Barbara. Oh yeah, the cold water coming out of the sink faucet was just a trickle. Hot water faucet ran fine. Interesting.
Lovely little place - 4.5 stars
Lovely little place in lovely neighborhood with a very cute patio. I would definitely stay again and do recommend it.
But for the sake of feedback, a couple of amenity improvements and a touch of maintenance would bring my rating up to 5 stars for a 2 person stay. The bathroom and closet doors need some WD40. They were so squeaky that it was impossible not to wake up the other person in the room when using the bathroom at night. Also, more than 2 towels (1 each) would be a nice touch. And either a longer shower curtain is needed or a much larger bathmat. The way the shower is configured, it's easy to get water everywhere and the bathmat is quite tiny. Finally, there was coffee and a coffee maker, but all the coffee was decaf which was disappointing. Don't get me wrong, all in all it was a nice place. Attending to these few details would just make it awesome! Thanks!
Laguna Santa Barbara
We ended up in a beautiful 1 bedroom home with a full kitchen and great patio. However, our host accidentally canceled our original reservation so we didn’t receive any communication from him until I reached out to him. I understand these things can happen, but it was a bit unnerving. The home was beautiful and so comfortable once we got settled. It was close to everywhere and the ocean was only 1 mile away. Ultimately we were able to communicate with our host, but he was not very approachable and seemed inconvenienced by our questions.
Despite these issues, we had a great stay in a beautiful home with the most comfortable bed ever.
Centrally Located and Comfortable
We had a great stay. Very comfortable and within walking distance of downtown and the beach.
Clean studio in a great location.
We loved our stay in Santa Barbara. This studio was perfect for us. Clean unit with good sized bathroom and big walk in closet. We were able to walk to state street and enjoy a very festive time of year.
Clean comfortable and cozy!
We had a great time!
Thank you David!
Ideally located just 5 blocks from the historic quarter of Santa Barbara, and just 6 blocks to the Beach allows for a unique experience in our unit -- all that is Santa Barbara -- historic, lively downtown and leisure beach activities. A perfect vacation spot
