In addition, the downstairs patio, kitchen and outdoor grill are all available for your use.

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 location is incredible. It's a mix of old families and young college kids.
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.
Other Things to Note
I have a list of things to do around town and restaurant recommendations.
Also have a bunch of our local tourist brochure.
There are two young kittens on the premise, so please be careful coming in and out of the house. They are not hypo-allergic, but many people allergic to cats don't have a problem with them.
Lock the door every time you come and go.
Always clean up the kitchen after you use it. Thank you.
The cleaning fee is for cleaning the bedroom and the water usage during our drought.
Jill is a natural people person and should be in the hospitality business. Her home is very warm, her kitties are darling and she is fun to talk to and very informative. Very convenient and parking was never an issue. I'll be back!
Jill was the best host I could have dreamt of! She made me feel so comfortable right from the start which is not an easy task to accomplish with me:) I loved her, her place and her two cats Brooklyn and Bianca. The place was exactly how it was described. Walking distance to beach and town so it was very convenient for me as I did not have a car. Her house is cozy and very clean indeed. She supplied me with all the information I needed and was extremely helpful to make my first airbnb experience the best ever. Luckily she had to time to socialize with me and I even got to meet her brother and niece (wonderful people). I had the best time in Santa Barbara and I know where to stay the next time for sure. I was sad to say goodbye to Jill, Brooklyn and Bianca as they felt like family to me!
Jill is an awesome host. She gave me a lot of excelent suggestions about Santa Barbara. The house environment is clean, clear and with a lot of positive vibration. The room is very confortable! I strongly recommend to stay at Jill's house.
A truly lovely home with a welcoming environment. We were provided with helpful recommendations tailored to our interests, and the place was well maintained and comfortable. We would wholly recommend Jill & Chris' place to anyone.
Séjour fantastique à Santa Barbara, quelle ville merveilleuse. Jill nous a accueilli comme des rois. Elle nous a donné de précieux conseils sur les choses à faire en ville et de bonnes adresses pour le vin et les restos. La chambre est grande, lit confortable et salle de bain attenante. Le seul hic, le train passe tout près et on l'entend à 5 hrs du matin.
Although we didn't see much of Jill & Chris since we were out a lot, they were incredibly nice and accommodating. They were very respectful of our privacy and the room & bathroom were very comfortable and clean. It was almost like we had our own place because Jill & Chris were so quiet when going in and out of the house. I'm allergic to cats and usually I'm sneezing and have watery eyes within just a couple hours, but I had no problems at all during our stay. Great place and hosts. Thanks Chris & Jill!
