All kinds of ways to get around, via walking twenty minutes to the shopping area, ten minutes to the ocean, bike it in 5, bus service everywhere is just blocks away.

Guest would be expected to treat the accommodation with cleanliness and respect as well as care. We please ask that you do not try to clean or correct any mess you may have made accidentally! Let us know so we can best correct.
Many make up the beds before checking out! NO need for that, we always service the room and change and wash our 100% cotton sheets.
The beach can at times have tar! This tar sticks to shoes, feet, slippers, towels etc. Caution to not get tar on our beach towels is very appreciated We do have coconut oil and paper towels and anything else to clean feet or footwear readily available in order to not track tar into the unit.
During summer months ants and or harmless insects may make their presence. We always try to not use any toxic insecticides. We would rather have a bug than...well, you know what we mean. We keep as clean and bug free as ever possible.
My daughter and I stayed here to visit UCSB campus. It was an overnight trip. We wanted to check in earlier than we planned, so called up Charlie. He said "your room is ready!" so off we went. The room is very charming with lots of personal touch. We had everything we needed in the room. Check in and out was super easy. Bed was comfortable. Charlie was very friendly---sort of like visiting an old friend. The trail right behind the home leads to the ocean, wow!
Thank you, Charlie and Victoria for the wonderful stay!
Victoria and Charlie have an impressive little pad for travelers. The accommodation in itself is simple, only one bedroom with no kitchen but with a large bathroom with two sinks. The bed very comfortable, the little garden and patio in front of the room, sunny and lovely, the location excellent--at the end of a cul-de-sac street that turns into a lovely walk to the beach--and the warmth of these hosts just remarkable.
We really enjoyed staying in Victoria and Charlie's home. We had a room to ourselves with our own bathroom, mini-kitchen and entrance. We arrived very late on the first night and they were accommodating. There was a hand-drawn map in our room of the surrounding area. We hope to stay there again.
Victoria provided me with detailed instructions so that we could get into the room with no issues when she was not at home. The room is very clean and her yard is lovely. It is 10 minutes' walk to the beach.
Charlie and Victoria were wonderful hosts. Very accommodating. The room was perfect, even better than in the pictures. I will definitely be back.
Make sure you take the trail down to the bluffs ! Pretty incredible.
Victoria and Charlie's place is absolutely lovely! The room I stayed in was clean and well kept and their front yard was peaceful and their hospitality very generous. They made sure I was welcomed and knew where to park, etc. I very much enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay with them again when visiting the Goleta/Santa Barbara area.
Victoria and Charlie have a beautiful home in a perfect location if you want some quality Ocean beach and cliffs. The hospitality was great and it is everything it's advertised to be. Charlie provided a hand drawn map of the best paths to get to scenic places all within walking distance from the home. We found great food/drinks in town as well.
