Please check out my place! Cozy, clean room with a comfortable bed with a host that loves hosting! This location is only half a block from Paseo Nuveo shopping mall and in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. I will provide you any type breakfast you like and coffee (granola bars, milk and cereal, fruit, even the bomblette-an omelette so bomb it's got to be called the bomblette)!
Expect a safe fun clean quiet private atmosphere with me (recent UCSB graduate). This is a 3 br/1 ba place and you may possibly be sharing common areas (kitchen, bathroom, living room) with other guests.
I can be involved and show you around or can leave you be if you are on business or in the middle of a romantic getaway. I know many local attractions and am in the know about events so if you are visiting for the first time or for the hundredth time this will be a perfect place for you! Either way, I will be a very responsive and accommodating host.

I stayed at Shai's place in Santa Barbara with a friend for Memorial Day weekend, and I had a fantastic experience. Shai's place is in a great location in downtown Santa Barbara, just blocks away from the main street. The room was wonderful, and the place has a whiteboard filled with great recommendations for things to do in Santa Barbara if you've never been (like me). I felt very comfortable during my stay, and I will definitely stay there again the next time I am in Santa Barbara!
Shai was extremely welcoming, very engaging and polite. He answered very quickly any question I had. His place is right downtown in Santa Barbara -- close to restaurants, bars, walking and seeing the scene.
Shai is the coolest host ever. He is very responsive. The location is perfect for someone who want to experience the beautiful downtown Santa Barbara. Shai introduced us to the restaurants and bars upon arrival. In the morning, once he heard that we are up, he immediately text'd me and offered to make breakfast for us. I was glad that we took up his offer, as those eggs were da bomb!
Shai was really nice,communicative and really helpful about everything. We arrive really late but communication with him was perfect,everything was even better than discribed,location really nice close to the beach and central street,tidy place and Shai was great host! Thanks so much!!
Shai was awesome, I had a great time staying at his place. He is very informative with what is going on in Santa Barbara. I will be booking with Shai during my next Santa Barbara trip as you can't beat the location and the awesomeness of the host!
Shai is a wonderful guy, very attentive and laid back. It was very easy to coordinate my arrival and he responds to texts readily. His house is small but very cozy and it has all you need. Very close to downtown. Shai is very knowledgeable about the area and will give you a lot of tips. He shared his fridge which I really liked. I highly recommend this place if you are visiting Santa Barbara.
