From the Staff:

Favorite Part of The Job:

“Imagining how exciting it is for guests to plan, book and stay with us. The whole process of deciding to Pack Up + Go is so much fun. It's all about the journey (and in our case, the destination!).”

What They Say About YOU!

“The element of surprise is such an intriguing concept. It really allows for you to be open to any adventure once you arrive. And, let's face it, who wouldn't want to take a surprise trip to Santa Barbara?”

Where to Go:

Toma is my favorite restaurant. Tom, the owner is hands-down one of the nicest people I have ever met so it's no wonder that his is the top-rated restaurant in town. My favorite activity is to walk along the beach - the people you pass are friendly and it's fun to hunt for sea glass. You may see an octopus in the tide pools or site a pod of dolphins or a whale.”

Favorite Place To Visit in the US:

“Just one? That's tough because there are so many. My top two would have to be Bar Harbor, Maine and Olympia, Washington .”

Craziest Day on the Job:

“We just this past spring had nine ducklings get stuck in a drainage hole with their mother frantically pacing back and forth along the banks of the creek adjacent to our property. Our swift-thinking gardeners rescued them by herding them into a plastic bucket and carrying them back to their mother. It was magical!“
