The Space

Private room with your own private bath, in a very quiet, non-smoking environment. New twin bed added 9/2014 (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.

Guest Access

Guests have access to kitchen, living room, dining room and patio for relaxing. There's a coffee maker, microwave and toaster oven available, and a selection of breakfast items.

Interaction with Guests

I like to allow guests their privacy, with friendly greetings the norm, but I happily provide information on Santa Barbara and Goleta points of interest, if asked. There are numerous maps and books in the room for guests to use and return.

The Neighborhood

It's a very quiet and safe area, with nice mountain views, and just a 20 minute pleasant walk to the beach across the mesa. You can walk for miles along the ocean on the bluffs. I have Santa Barbara guidebooks and maps for your use, and happy to answer any questions you may have. Bed in the pictures has been replaced with whitewashed pine headboard, foot board and a box springs/mattress. I will update photos soon.


Getting Around

Parking is right across from the home in a designated parking area off street. Free, of course.
Buses to either UCSB or downtown Santa Barbara are a 15-minute mile walk.

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. (There's a chair in the carport for your comfort while you wipe off the oil using the baby oil and hand towels provided.)

Late arrivals after 10:00 p.m. generally not accepted. Please ask if this is needed due to late flight, and I'll try to accommodate.

House Rules

This is a non-smoking home. No smoking even outside the home since smoky clothes and belongings are triggers to smoke allergies. No guests and no pets, please. Sorry, no laundry, including washing clothes in the shower. Laundromat is at shopping center, should you need it.

Please bring flat shoes for the house - high heels destroy the hardwood floors. Thanks so much!

2 suitcases and a backpack can be accommodated in the room, and no other storage is available.
