Liz and Harry's place was exactly what we needed for or 5 week get away in SB! Harry and Liz met us upon arrival, gave us tour and we were set! Would definitely stay there again!

Liz and Harry were both very nice and lovely hosts. We slept great since the bed is like a cloud! Close to everything SB has to offer.

This home is the perfect distance to the beach, as well as downtown and night life. It is a bit on the older side and could use some TLC. They had all of the basic essentials you may need while being away from home which was nice. Some spider repellent would be a great idea to pack for your stay as well. Granted, there are a lot of plants and flowers surrounding the exterior.

I had the most amazing experience staying at this beautiful beach cottage! Walking distance to the beach and harbor. Super cute neighborhood and the garden had a very private feel and beautiful passion fruits growing all over. I'd love to come back and stay again! Liz was such a great host and very helpful :)

This was a perfect place for a weekend getaway. It was located in a very cool part of Santa Barbara and was easy to get to around. The house is great for two people and I would definitely stay there again.

Liz is a very gracious host willing to accommodate all my needs. She's very friendly and a joy to work with. The beach house was perfect except for the slow WiFi. It was very comfortable and had everything I needed. And it was a very short walk to the beach. Everything is exactly as pictured and advertised. I would recommend Liz's beach house to everyone that needs a full house experience.

Liz and Harry made us feel right a home from the start. They met us with a bottle of wine and were super helpful in letting us know the best times/places to go on a busy holiday weekend. Their cottage is perfect for a relaxing couples weekend just blocks from the beach and walking distance to the wharf and downtown area. It was great to wake up to bunnies in the garden in the morning and in the evening come home to use their awesome bbq. We would highly recommend staying with them and can't wait for the next time we can come back!

Liz And Harry User ProfileLiz And Harry is a superhost.

Harry and I are native Santa Barbarians and grew up in the same sand box (Mesa Lane beach). I am a Registered Nurse, but travel via land and air to monitor clinical trials. Harry has been a commercial fisherman/diver for over 20 years which has taken him all over the pacific coast and Alaska. Sometimes I can spot him heading to the islands from my plane departing Santa Barbara.
We both love the outdoors and when we travel have stayed in many vacation homes from rustic huts in the jungle, to modern houses on the sand and enjoy being able to cook a meal when we want. Location is what is important to us and we look forward to being Airbnb guests in the near future.
For the past 8 years we have been living together in 2 separate houses. Not conventional, but it works for us. We both love our homes. We have tried renting one or the other out at different times, but Airbnb seems to the best option to share our homes, but keep them too.
