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.

Santa Barbara est une ville magnifique. La maison de Burke est située dans la montagne à quelques minutes de la plage. Une maison très coquette et tranquille. Burke est très accueillant, nous nous sommes sentis à la maison. Il nous a également donné de très bons conseils.
Burke absent, accueillies par son fils peu bavard mais sympa
Chambre petite mais correcte
Nous n'avons pas pu voir beaucoup Burke mais lors de notre arrivée il a été très sympathique et l'arrivée dans la maison à été très facile. La maison est située dans un quartier charmant. Je recommande la maison de Burke qui est vraiment au calme !
We slept in Burke house only one night. The place was clean enough, it had everything we needed and 10 minutes driving from the city centre. We would say that for the price it was a good choice! Thank you for the hospitality!
Burkes place was very clean, nice and quiet and the location in the mountains was so beautiful. Burke himself was also a good host and showed us on the map where to go to see some great views of Santa Barbara and how to go safest to our next location. We also got to see the cute little newborn birds that he had on the back of his house. Everything was perfect and we slept great. Thank you Burke!
Burke was great with all communication during my stay there and prior to my reservation. The accommodation was perfect for my needs. I really enjoyed meeting and talking to Burke and his family. They are simply wonderful people and very interesting. I will always go back to stay with Burke when I need a single or double room in Santa Barbara. Great People and a great place to stay! Very considerate, communicative, clean and conscientious.
