I have had an amazing experience with Villa Santa Barbara. The staff are wonderful and accommodating while always having the best interest of the residents in mind, which has been challenging due to the pandemic. They go out of their way to take that extra bit of time and care for my 97-year-old father. This place is like a family, with all of the staff warm, friendly and always helpful and nice. Leslie M.
