Interaction with Guests
I may not be home sometimes, but won't be far away. I do go to the beach often,and spend quite a bit of time on the trails in the mountains out of town.
It is very much appreciated if you can arrive before 9 pm , even if it's just to stop by to pick up the key and check out the house and parking space for your car. There is no street lights so coming in the daylight is even better.
It's a pretty quiet neighborhood , and very quiet in the morning hours.
There is a bus stop about a mile away,from there it is a gentle grade up to the house. If coming by train or bus it's sometimes possible for me to pick guests up at the station, give me arrival time and I'll let you know if I can do it.
Other Things to Note
Please try to arrive before 9pm

Very good contact with the host, place as described is just one small room- but it is very clean and good orginized so you can put your stuff there. Location is good 10 min by car from downtown, but car is a must. It was perfect for our affordable one night stay in Santa Barbara
Burke is a great host, laid back and warm. He made me feel welcome even before I arrived. Checking in and out was a breeze. The house is in a great location and the room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and close to major sites. Parking was easy . I highly recommend staying at Burke's. He also provided up to the minute surf reports for me whenever I was interested in going to the beach...an added bonus! The house is beautiful and an awesome garden.
We had a great stay in Santa Barbara at Burke's home. There was a nice room for us, and he was a friendly host, even offering us a couple lemons off his lemon tree. It was a short drive to the downtown area.
Burke was very nice and his birds were very cute...room was great, bed was comfy and parking was very easy...would stay again
Great location and cool property. Room was simple, but just what I needed. Burke is easy to communicate with & very laid back.
