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.

We had a very warm welcome at Karens house. Karen is a great friendly and helpful host. It was easy to communicate with her. The e-bikes are more than a must do. Our garden-casita was really beautiful, clean and cozy. In the evening we enjoyed to sit outside on our terrace in the evening. We highly recommend this place.
Karen’s place is cozy and comfortable. Conveniently located near the freeway but in a quiet neighborhood. Her garden is a little oasis in Santa Barbara with turtles and fish in a little pond right inside her front gate. Our casita was perfect for our stay, and we had the added benefit of using her electric bikes which was an absolute blast!
We’ll definitely be back! ;^)
Kare was there to great me & provide me with information about the neighborhood and amenities. It was nice to be close to downtown but far enough off the main street that you could enjoy the neighborhood. The electric bikes were a great amenity and really let you get around town & see everything. I would definitely recommend!
We loved staying at Karen's place! Her home was easy to find and parking was a breeze! On arrival we walked through her front garden into a lush little oasis which was lovely, and then followed the path as instructed to our private room - Cassita Number One! It was utterly gorgeous with a super comfy bed, adorable wee bathroom where the shower had great pressure, and there was even a mini kitchenette with a coffee machine that we made good use of! We met Karen very shortly after arrival and we found her great personality and enthusiasm utterly infectious and energizing, especially after a long day in the car. She set us up with electric bikes to do a quick tour which was awesome - it made getting around just as easy as pie, and was a wonderful way to see the neighborhood and explore the beach and waterfront area. We only stayed one night in Santa Barbara and we wished we'd stayed longer.
Karen is so sweet! She greeted us at the gate with a warm welcome and made sure we had what we needed for our quick stay in SB. I wish we could have stayed longer to take advantage oh the electric bikes! We'll definitely stay here again. Super private and comfy. Karen has gotten everything right.
We extended our stay in Santa Barbara and moved into the studio after spending a couple of nights in the bigger Garden Cottage (see review for details). The studio is really well laid out and makes great use of the space - the same quality (comfortable and stylish) and amenities, just a bit smaller than the Cottage. Lovely view of the garden (the pond has turtles!), and a cute little patio too - highly recommended.
