The Space

This charming Cape Cod style Townhouse is a short walk from the beach, harbor and pier. An easy walk from the Train Station and State Street shopping and restaurants.
The townhouse is light and airy, new and clean and very welcoming. There are two bedrooms upstairs with their own baths, only one is rentable. The living room, kitchen and dining room are all downstairs.
The neighborhood is filled with local families and City College students and is very close to a local grocery and liquor store...even a fish market that serves the local restaurants.
The private bedroom is upstairs and has it's own bathroom. Close to the room are a washer and dryer that are available for your use.
In addition, the downstairs patio, kitchen and outdoor grill are all available for your use.
The bed is now a real bed that is very comfortable and always clean.
There is free street parking right outside the house. Watch the parking signs on Wednesday and Thursday.

Guest Access

Simple breakfast (self serve) in the morning.
Use of the kitchen and refrigerator.
Sip your coffee on the back patio.

Interaction with Guests

I know you are here for vacation, so if I'm around, I love to chat and say hi, but want you to feel very free to do your own thing. I have a very busy life.

The Neighborhood

The location is incredible. It's a mix of old families and young college kids.

Getting around

Santa Barbara is a very small town. We are close to the train, so you can walk to the townhouse.
With bikes you can bike every where. Great bike path system.
With a car, you can drive the town in a few hours and drive up to the mountains for a hike.
We have a good bus system, but it's not like Europe.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • This was my first trip to Santa Barbara and also one of my first Airbnb experiences. Both did not disappoint and me and my mum, who is traveling with me, had a fabulous time.

    Jill and Chris's townhouse was absolutely beautiful. Very tastefully decorated and still very cosy and comfortable. Everything was perfectly clean and welcoming for us.
    The location was great, and in easy walking distance from the beaches and to downtown.

    Jill was such a lovely host. We really enjoyed chatting with her in the mornings and she gave us some very good recommendations of places to eat and of special events going on in town during our stay. She did not hesitate to invite us to join her and her friends for one of these, which we really appreciated.
    Jill and Chris also have two beautiful cats, which we loved to watch play with each other during breakfast.

    The room was very comfortable and cozy and it had a great ceiling fan which was very quiet during the night. The private bathroom was really nice and clean too.

    I would without a doubt book Jill and Chris's guestroom again next time and I recommend it to all of you who are looking for a friendly and convenient place to stay while in town too!

    Thanks Jill and have a wonderful summer!

  • We have a wonderful stay in Jill' beautiful house. Jill is an elegant and wise business woman, she gave me many good advices of Santa Barbara and NY city as well, that we would go later this month. I fully believe that Jill will impress you either.

  • My girlfriend and I stayed at Jill's house at the end of our trip across California, where Santa Barbara was the last stop. Jill was a fantastic host. Accommodating and very interesting to speak with. She definitely made the last days of our trip across California more interesting than they would had been if we had stayed at conventional hotel. The private bedroom and en suite bathroom were clean and comfortable. Almost felt like home. The house and decor was pretty cool as well. The location was great. The main street, pier and harbor were within a short walking distance from the house. It was my first experience with airbnb and it will definitely not be the last after this great stay.

  • Would highly recommend Jill & Chris's place to stay while in SB!

    The townhouse is beautiful and looks just like the photos. We were able to easily walk around to the best parts of town (beach, Funk Zone and Downtown).

    They were wonderful hosts and very nicely set out fruit and coffee for us to enjoy.

    What a great stay!!!

  • Jull & Chris's home is definitively a great place to stay. My girlfriend and I stayed two nights night and had a amazing time in Santa Barbara. Jill was very friendly: When we arrived, she greeted us, was very interested and made us feel very welcome. In case we will come back to SB, we would love to stay there again.

    The apartment is located very close to the beach and the center of Santa Barbara.
    Jill was very nice, open, friendly and helpful.
    We would go there again.

I have been a clothing designer for 23 years and Chris is an architect. We both enjoy Santa Barbara for the social events, access to the mountains, ocean and great restaurants. Chris loves music and soccer. I love art, people and travel. A year ago, we had the luck to take our dream vacation to Africa. P.S. It is Chris that speaks the languages, plus a little bit of Italian.
