Interaction with Guests
Once I show you the " Casita" you will enjoy complete privacy. I am always available so do not hesitate to contact me.
One block from Cottage Hospital. Beautiful walking routes! Safe! Park in front of the residence on Castillo street which is free parking all day long.
About the use of Electric bikes. I have several Electric bikes so they are always available for my Guests. If you arrive early, you may ride the Bikes that day. If you choose to ride them the next day (if departing) you can check out and then ride the bikes as long as you like. Please advise me as to when you will want to ride the Bikes at least 30 Minutes prior so that I can bring them out to you and will meet next to the pond with your bikes. I will provide locks, helmets and a suggested route to see Santa Barbara. If you can ride a regular Bike, then you will be able to ride these Amazing Electric Bikes. See what everyone is talking about! Also taxi and uber services are available.

What a great stay! The room was cozy and just right for two and the property has an amazing tropical vibe to it. The best part was the electric bikes that we used both days all over town. I'll never do normal bikes again! That's not true but if I could I would. Karen was great and accommodating throughout our stay. We definitely plan on visiting again!
Wir waren eine Nacht dort. Karen hat uns nett empfangen. Die E-bikes sollte man auf alle Fälle nutzen. Vielen Dank für alles.
The studio is small but had everything you could need and was beautifully decorated. Karen was lovely and very responsive. I wish we'd had time to use the bikes and explore Santa Barbara more !
Karen's little "Casita #1" in Santa Barbara is a lovely place. It's very cozy and clean. The casita is in the middle of a wonderful green garden and has its own access and small porch. The bed is very comfy (the matress was a relief for my back!). There's also a small kitchen with a fridge and a microwave where you could probably heat some food (which we didn't try).
Karen is a great host. She's very easy to talk to and provided us with a lot of information on Santa Barbara. She also lended us two Ebikes for the day although we were only staying one night. Exploring Santa Barbara with those bikes was a lot of fun and the best thing you can do in town.
To put it in a nutshell: I highly recommend staying at Karen's "Casita #1" while you are in Santa Barbara. Thank you, Karen, for your efforts! :)
We really enjoyed our overnight here! The place is cozy, clean the quiet and Karen is a great host! She also has a very cool pond with turtles which is an extra treat to walk past on your way in and out. Highly recommend a night here.
We had a wonderful stay at Casita #1! We especially loved the outdoor patio and the beautiful park-like atmosphere of Karen's outdoor spaces. The Koi pond and turtles were wonderful. When I inquired about a bike, Karen showed up immediately and set me up for a great ride around Santa Barbara. I would note that it's a very compact space so if you really need to spread out, you might want to check out Karen's cottage.
