The Space

Lovely guest rental with amazing views of ocean, city and mountains!
Situated on beautiful grounds with a private patio and gardens.
Property is gated and private, yet conveniently located 5 minutes to downtown or the beach.
Home has a new kitchen, living room with 50" TV, and a spacious dining room. The master has queen bed, flat screen TV, and private entrance. 2nd bedroom has 1 full bed and 2 twins. Bath is newly remodeled.
Enjoy the outdoor patio as you take in the view of the mountains and majestic trees, or just relax and delight in the sound of the birds.

Santa Barbara is a traveler's delight, with many cultural and sports activities available. The downtown is charming and active, full of shops, restaurants, museums and art galleries. The farmers market is a fun experience, and the funk zone offers great wine tasting. There is something for every member of the family!

  • We had an excellent stay. We were two couples and a baby, and Carmen had a travel crib and high chair we could use which was very convenient. Her home was very nice, comfortable and clean, and the view was amazing. Highly recommend.

  • Spent a long weekend and had a great time. Very comfortable accommodations (we were three adults and two infants), great location and beautiful view. Photos do not really capture how pretty it is. Good value. Highly recommended!

  • Carmen is amazing, her house is beautiful and exactly as photographed. It was so close to town, but felt a lifetime away from the busy-ness of downtown SB. It was quite and peaceful and the yard and view was a big big hit with our post-wedding brunch guests.

  • We had a very nice stay at Carmen's,
    the place is spotless, well located (makes for a challenging bike ride coming back from town), amazing views.
    The place feels very private, the neighborhood safe with a luxurious flora.
    Carmen was quick to respond to questions we had, wifi works great, giant TV/ Roku made for a couple of good movie nights.
    We'll definetly be back during our next visit to SB.

  • My family and I (six adults and one toddler) stayed at Carmen's place in Santa Barbara. The house is located in a beautiful, safe community on the top of a hill, while still being a 5-minute drive to downtown Santa Barbara. The view from the house is spectacular, and there is a private balcony where we had stunning meals. Carmen was available (kindly and promptly responded to our random requests for kitchen tools to cook meals), but the accommodation still felt private and secluded. If you are traveling with children, this place is very baby-friendly: Carmen leaves a baby sleeping cot, high chair, etc for your use!

  • We had a wonderful day at Carmen's! It was a great space for our family. It was a nice size, clean, the beds were comfortable and it had everything we needed. The yard with the view was an added bonus.

    April 2014
  • Our stay here was delightful. We all slept well, enjoyed the view and enjoyed Santa Barbara. We also had a wheelchair child in which we were able to cut across the back yard to get to our basement apartment. All great.

Hello! I am lucky to live in this beautiful city, and I would love to share it with you. I am a medical professional, but my real passion is to travel and learn about other cultures. I enjoy cooking (so naturally I love food), wine tasting, and exploring new places.
