The Space

Welcome to our quiet vacation rental in beautiful Santa Barbara. We are about 300 yards from the Pacific Ocean. A stairway to the beach is a short walk away. On the Mesa, we are approx 3 miles from the center of downtown and a little less to the harbor and picturesque Stearns Wharf. The airport and UCSB are about 10 quick freeway miles away. Two grocery stores, a laundromat and many other amenities are 6 blocks away. You will be able to enjoy food from Thailand, Japan, China, Italy, Mexico, and even America at the restaurants within walking distance from our home. There are also pizza joints, a couple of sandwich shops, and, of course, a Starbucks
There is ample parking on the street in front of the pathway leading to the private deck and the room. The room is equipped with a small refrigerator, microwave/convection oven, toaster and coffee maker, electric frying pan and more. Plates, cups, glasses and cookware are in the room. The bathroom has a large shower, but no tub. Extra towels and bedding are provided in case your stay runs into a number of days. Even beach towels are provided. There is a color TV with a DVD player (email hidden) connection. The private enclosed deck is often used by guests who come to play and bring their bikes, surfboards, etc. Santa Barbara is a true vacation destination with its worldclass restuarants, shopping, many golf courses, miles of scenic bikepaths and hiking in the nearby mountains.. Many of our guests are here to visit their children who are attending UCSB, Westmont College, and SB City College. Grandparents will choose us when they come to visit their grandkids. It beats staying in an impersonal often noisy motel room downtown or a pricey one along the waterfront. We have been offering the room as a vacation rental for over three years now and have had many repeat guests. We have lived in SB for over 40 years and this translates into a wealth of local knowledge. Give us a try -- you won't be disappointed.

  • Peter has been very welcoming with us, we really appreciate his explanation to find the room passing by a fantastic road with a great view on the channel island. The room is not a brand new one but it's very well equipped with everything you need (including cooking and a big fridge which is very useful with a baby). The location is great, very quiet, safe and so close from the sea (you can see it from the outside). There is a great see view walk to go to the harbor. We had also the opportunity to make a day trip to LA from there (less than 1h30 driving). I recommend this room and thanks again to Peter

  • The reservation was canceled 6 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

  • The hosts were warm and welcoming. The house is close to a beach access and large park.
    The room was a little small but there was a lovely outside deck with table and chairs.

  • The host's home is in a quiet and safe area with nearby shops, restaurants and beaches. It was a convenient base for touring Santa Barbara. I especially liked that the host left suggestions on where to eat and what to do, and that the refrigerator was stocked with orange juice, fruit and bagels for guests. The room was well-equipped with a TV and hair dryer.

  • Peter's private room was a perfect getaway for my girlfriend and I. We loved that it had a private entrance and the room was in very good condition. It beat staying at a hotel any day. We loved the place and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice quiet neighborhood by the beach to stay at.

  • Lovely place and great hosts; recommend strongly

  • Peter and Julie have a nice private room with bath. We stayed for two nights and it was clean, quite and well appointed.
    Thanks for the "real" orange juice in the frig ... it was great.

    February 2014
  • The location was great - near the ocean - and the room had everything necessary for a pleasant stay.
    Peter was a fine and accommodating host, willing to help us out with information about the town, where to go etc.

    February 2014
  • The room here was perfect for a woman traveling solo. It had enough kitchen appliances/tools to fix easy meals. The bed was comfortable and the house & neighborhood were very quiet at night. I loved walking around the neighborhood - to Mesa Park Steps, the Douglas Family Preserve, and I had the best sushi in Santa Barbara at Ichiban on Cliff Dr. I would recommend Peter's room and would definitely stay here again.

  • Brilliant host and fantastic property. It was like a little apartment in his house. Had everything you need in the space. Great location with a 10 minute walk to a lovely beach. I would highly recommend staying there. Peter was great!

About
My wife and I have been married for nearly 40 years. We have raised two wonderful children and that's our 4.5 year old grandson in a recent wedding picture. We have been offering the room as a vacation rental for about 4 years now. Only recently did a friend tell us about Airbnb, so we are eager to try this professional and secure-looking site. Our guests come to SB for a variety of reasons -- weddings of friends, to visit grandchildren, to see their kids who are attending one of the local colleges, job interviews, European travellers on holiday, etc. We enjoy meeting the variety of visitors who choose our home, although we sometimes will not see them at all. Some guests know their way around town, have no questions for us, and may value their privacy. These folks will check themselves in and out and be on their way. My wife and I are empty-nesters, but are blessed to have our children still in town. Julie enjoys her special time taking care of grandson Andy 1-2 days a week. It's a special time to have with such a growing imagination. We have lived in SB for 40 years and have a wealth of knowledge about our community should a guest want to use us as a resource. We both love a good story - movie, book, etc - and we enjoy the outdoors. I love to golf when time permits and most sports occupy my attention to some degree (go Lakers). My wife is a true people person who has devoted the last twenty-five years of her life to assisting folks with various issues which come up in their personal life.
