Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Small but cozy room. We had a nice swim in the pool in the backyard. Julie is a very friendly host and we were very welcome to her house.

  • I so enjoyed my stay here. Julie is a charming host, and very accommodating. She makes you feel very welcome in her home. The room has lots of windows, with one huge one overlooking a lovely garden. The beautiful fresh flower bouquets and in-room coffeemaker were appreciated. The private bathroom is bright and large. The location is very convenient. This was my first AirBnB stay, and as a woman traveling alone I appreciated feeling safe and having someone to visit with at the end of the day. Julies suggestions for the area were helpful, too. And I love the feeling of coming away with a new friend! Thank you very much, Julie!

  • This place was lovely and relaxing! We arrived around noon, after running a half marathon in Solvang, and Julie's place was perfect for rest and recovery. We spent the entire afternoon laying by the pool. Her neighborhood is quiet and her pool is private, so its easy to feel transported. The room has a romantic, antique, country feel, which was lovely. It has great light and is separated from the main part of the house so you have privacy. Julie was wonderful - very laid back and made us feel at home. There is a coffee maker in the room, and she offered us a variety of options for breakfast as well. I would definitely go back here, and I highly recommend it to others. Thanks, Julie!

  • We so enjoyed our stay in this sweet room. Julie was a gracious and thoughtful host, attentive to our needs. My favorite was enjoying breakfast on the patio since the weather was perfect. We were not far from places we wanted to go including the beach. When we find ourselves in Santa Barbara again we will surely return here.

  • Julie was a truly wonderful host! She was timely in her response to my reservation request and reached out in advance of the trip to confirm our arrival. Furthermore, she was incredibly accommodating to our needs and her house was the perfect hidden gem! I would definitely stay with Julie again.

  • Julie was a perfect host during our stay in Santa Barbara. Her place was great: clean, spacious with fresh fruit from the trees, a terrace next to the pool and just a 20 minute walk from the beach and downtown. We definitively recommend staying here.

  • This was my first experience using Airbnb and I couldn't be happier about it. Julie's home is bright and charming and in a lovely secluded cul de sac surrounded by lush foliage. We felt completely at home here even though our host wasn't able to meet us in person since she was out of town. Her friend Ron met us with no problem (and even sang a soulful version of Happy Birthday) and Julie had left treats just for the occasion!
    Our room was plenty big, comfortable and private - even if Julie had been home, it is all the way on the other side of the house and away from her quarters. Our bathroom was clean and our own (a short jag thru the kitchen from our bedroom to get there). Julie made every effort ahead of time to make certain we would be happy, including excellent suggestions for places to go, things to do, and restaurants for dinner and brunch.
    If every Airbnb is this good an experience- count me in from now on! Thank you Julie and Ron!

  • We loved our stay with Julie. Her room is very comfortable, clean and the bed is top notch. It was very easy to communicate with Julie via email and phone. She was an excellent host and was available if we had questions, but not intrusive. We enjoyed our all too brief visit to Santa Barbara and will absolutely stay with Julie our next visit.

    When traveling through or to Santa yourself a favor and enjoy Julie's hospitality.

  • Julie was very sweet and accommodating. We didn't have much time to converse with her or get to know her due to a very busy schedule unfortunately. A very cute home on a cul-de-sac. The room was nothing fancy but more than adequate - clean with a comfy bed with lots of windows, natural light and tons of books to peruse. The back yard and pool looked very inviting though we didn't get out there. She offered us plenty of breakfast choices to prepare for ourselves which we took advantage of and appreciated. One slightly odd thing was that the door to the room we stayed in had a large window in it which was missing, meaning there was a large hole with no window and only a shade covering it. It may make some feel they have a bit less privacy but it didn't bother us, and it may even have already been addressed by the time I post this. Overall a good experience.

  • Julie made it very easy to stay there. The room was clean and cozy. Her charming little house is in a very nice location that lent itself to several long walks around Santa Barbara. We wish that we had more time to stay!
