We expect our guest to enjoy themselves first and foremost. We offer a low stress and comfortable environment that is perfect for a weekend getaway. Pets are invited and welcomed.
Both Danni and Matt were great hosts and their puppy Tater Tot is adorable! We were traveling down the coast and stayed in a number of air bnb's. This space was nice and private but we did find it to be a bit noisier than other locations (not in the house but neighbors). Either way, we would def come again!
We didn't get to meet Dani, but she provided so much helpful information before and during our stay. She even made us coffee in the morning! The house was great and just as described.
We had an amazing time at Danni and Matt's house and we would have loved to stay longer in sunny Santa Barbara. We only had one day there, but Matt was great in providing us with tips on how to best experience SB - we got to see the Mission, State Street, the beach and the wharf in addition to lots of parks. The room was great and we had our own bathroom. Matt and Danni provided us with everything we could have wished for - a comfortable bed, fresh towels, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, ironing board and not least freshly brewed coffee in the morning! Thanks for making our stay so nice and memorable, Matt and Danni.
A lovely place for our quick stopover. Danni was very welcoming and provided everything we could need for a comfortable and relaxing stay, but also gave us plenty of privacy. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended - we would definitely stay here again if we came back to Santa Barbara!
Danni and Matt were wonderful hosts: welcoming, hospitable, offered suggestions to our inquiries, yet respected our privacy. Our room, private bathroom and personal living room were on the opposite end of their home. The rooms were clean and inviting. The kitchen was available to guests, and I thank Matt for making coffee each morning. The weather was perfect last weekend, so we enjoyed sitting outside in their backyard. Their house is on a quiet street, yet close to State Street. In fact, we enjoy long walks and it was 1.6 miles down to the Funk Zone which should not be missed. We hope to return to Danni and Matt's home one day. Thank you again, Danni and Matt, for your hospitality.
We recommend Danni's place for anybody who is looking for peaceful getaway. It was our first time using airbnb and it was a nice experience. A house is located in a great (clean, quiet and beautiful) neighborhood. We enjoyed a short walk to the Santa Barbara Mission and 10-15 min walk to the State Street. We took a very short drive to the mountains (Tunnel Rd) for Inspiration Point hike with spectacular view of the city. A bedroom has a private bathroom and access to the kitchen and washer/ dryer. There is also a bookcase full of interesting reads in the room. We liked cozy and relaxing outside patio. Internet access was a plus as well. Danni and Matt gave us privacy and made sure that we feel comfortable to contact them if we need anything.
Thank you for your hospitality!
Danni and Matt are amazing hosts. They sent really thorough directions ahead of time, and were very approachable and welcoming. Their location is fantastic - easy walk to State Street, Santa Barbara Bowl, and the Mission, with lots of parking available nearby. The room is really comfortable and bright, and we felt at home immediately. They also left us coffee and fruit the next morning, which was incredibly thoughtful and much appreciated. While I didn't get to meet Danni, I did meet Matt and he was really nice. It is just as advertised - you feel like you're staying in a private home but they're there if you want them to be! They provide tons of suggestions as to where to go & how to get there via info sheets in the room. I would absolutely stay with them any time I go back.
About the Host, Danielle
We are Matt and Danni, a married couple living and working in Santa Barbara. We have lived here over 30 years combined, both moving here for UC Santa Barbara when we were 18, although 10 years apart; Matt is 39 and Danni is 29 years old. Matt is a self employed General Contractor and together we run Scott Builders. Danni is a manager and a Veterinary Technician at a veterinary hospital downtown.
We value an active and sustainable lifestyle. Matt is a member of Paragon Gym where he kick boxes and we both love yoga. We go hiking a lot and enjoy beach days, where we spend a lot of time in the water surfing and paddle boarding. When we are not out with friends and galavanting around town, we enjoy hanging around our house gardening and BBQing.
As a guest at our house, you can expect to have your privacy. We value that both for the guests and for ourselves. Our house has a unique set up where we are able to divide the house so that guests have their own space and we have our own space. The common area is the kitchen, but apart from that, guests have a private living room in addition to their private bedroom and bathroom. We want our guests to have the best time and be completely comfortable utilizing the space. Our home is your home, and we mean that. In addition to ensuring that guests have their privacy, we also love meeting new people and sharing experiences. So, if guests want to do dinner together or have a happy hour drink, we are down!
