First Ever T(r)op Chef Competition

The Trop Chef Competition (above) drew the Villas community closer than ever before. With three participating suites and three mega prizes, the program was a success! Each participating apartment was given 5 secret ingredients, including blackberries, carrots, and chicken breasts. The prizes were gift cards to local Santa Barbara restaurants: $100 to the Boathouse at Hendry's Beach (1st place), $50 to Jeannine's Restaurant & Bakery (2nd place), and $25 to South Coast Deli (3rd place). Each team prepared amazingly delectable dishes that would be a match to five-star restaurants! Several dishes prepared were carrot cake with a blackberry topping sauce, grilled chicken breasts topped with parmesan cheese, and a sparkling blackberry lemonade refresher.

  • In addition to all the fun I had living at the Villas, something that I also think is important no matter where I live is customer service, and the relationship a tenant has with the property manager. Whenever I had a problem with anything, like the water not running right, or being locked out, there was always someone around or someone I could call to help me out, and they were always fast about it, which I really appreciated. Overall, living at the Villas was an awesome experience.

  • We really had a welcoming, community feeling to our building which made it that much better to come back to every day after class or work. The Villas at Tropicana has really felt like a home to me and I can't wait to come back for another year.

  • I loved spending my senior year at UCSB in a nice apartment that was in Isla Vista but wasn't submersed in the party atmosphere.
