About this listing

Walk along bluffs to beach. Convenient to town, UCSB & bike trail. Safe, very quiet area. Free Parking. Coffee, etc. in the morning. Resident sweet kitty. No smoking/vaping inside/out.

Included in price is the 12% bed tax + $2.50 tourism fee per night. No cleaning fee charged to guest. One security cam in common area for doors.

The space

Private room and your own private bath, in a very quiet, non-smoking environment. Very comfy bed (not daybed). We are located in the area between the city of Santa Barbara, and Goleta (UCSB), with easy access to either, and a nearby bike path to both directions. There are many beaches in the area and More Mesa Beach is a nice walk across the mesa to the bluffs and down to the beach. There is free high-speed wifi and cable, and a nice desk and large comfortable desk chair to complete work or browse the internet. TV and DVD player in the room, with a selection of classic DVD's.

Guest access

Guests have limited access to kitchen, living room, dining room and patio for relaxing. There's a coffee maker, microwave and toaster oven available, breakfast items. Cooking is limited to warming up food items, making tea, salad and such, (No frying, boiling, steaming).

Interaction with guests

I like to allow guests their privacy, with friendly greetings the norm, and I happily provide information on Santa Barbara and Goleta points of interest, if asked, and they are included in the guidebooks in the room. There are numerous maps and guidebooks in the room for guest's use.

Other things to note

If you've been walking on the beach, please check shoes for oil from seeps and leave them outside or in the entry. There is a purple bucket with baby oil and wipes in the carport to use to clean your feet if you were walking barefoot. Please don't track in the oil/tar that the tides bring onto the beach and eventually onto your feet. Wipe the baby oil off with a clean cloth so that you don't slip coming inside. If you've walked in the sand, shoes must be removed before coming in. Just shaking shoes doesn't get rid of the sand that abrades hardwood flooring. Thanks for being gracious to adhere to these rules.
Late arrivals after 9:30 p.m. generally not accepted. Please ask if this is needed due to late international flight, and I'll try to accommodate.

The room I stayed in was clean and I really appreciated the windows and the fan in the room. I loved the fact that I had my own bathroom which was clean and there is plenty of space for the toiletries.

Welcome! I'm a mature friendly, considerate female, living in Santa Barbara, enjoying all it has to offer, including being a grandmother to one sweet young girl. I've traveled a lot, and I don't have the desire to do a whole lot more, but I enjoy hearing of the visits others have made in their journeys through life. I'll welcome you, and show you breakfast items, and give you space, but if you want to chat, that is great, too. This is a very quiet, safe location, close to the beach, and I know you will enjoy your visit.
