Charming detached private cottage situated in our lovely backyard garden. Casita is one small room with queen bed and beautifully tiled full bathroom (including shower.) Enjoy our outdoor dining and lounge area, or shaded seating under the avocado tree. Casita includes wireless Internet, cable tv, and plenty of books and magazines for browsing. We provide a coffee maker and tea kettle, Peet's coffee and assorted teas, and oatmeal. There is no kitchen in the casita, but we can provide a cooler upon request.
We have hosted travelers from all over the world in our casita, and look forward to your visit. Aquí está su casa en Santa Barbara.

Guest Access

Guests have access to outdoor garden area, which includes dining area and shaded lounge area. We also have 2 beach cruiser bikes (with lock) that guests may use.

Interaction with Guests

We love meeting people and hearing about our guests' travels, and we're happy to share our recommendations for favorite local spots. We try to greet each guest upon arrival, but if that's not possible, we'll leave specific instructions. We respect our guests' privacy and are fairly 'hands-off' hosts once guests are settled in.

The Neighborhood

We live in one of Santa Barbara's oldest neighborhoods, walking distance to public transportation, the best Mexican food in town, and Trader Joe's. Walk to beach, great eats, including the world famous La Super Rica, Telegraph Brewing Company, and local wine tasting. Borrow a bike and hit the Urban Wine Trail in the nearby Funk Zone, or bike to State Street, Santa Barbara's "downtown" with shopping, restaurants, and bars.
Our neighborhood is quiet and family-friendly, comprised of small bungalows mostly built in the 1920's-40's.

Getting Around

Our neighborhood has great accessibility to the best of Santa Barbara. We're walking (or biking) distance to the beach, the Santa Barbara Bowl, downtown/State street, restaurants and shops. The train station is a 5-minute cab ride; public bus stop is one block from our place. We are approximately a 20-minute drive from the SB airport and UCSB.
There's plenty of free, easy street parking - just note street cleaning signs!
