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

Burke et son fils sont très accueillants et prêts à rendre service. Burke prend le temps d'échanger et de conseiller sur les visites et spots à ne pas louper. Une maison charmante sur les collines pour faire etape à la découverte de Santa Barbara.
Great little place in the foothills overlooking Santa Barbara. If you appreciate simplicity, ecological consciousness and quiet, this place is a good choice. Affordable in a very expensive town. clean and peaceful and feels like home. Burke was a good host, available but not overbearing, and we enjoyed some good conversation as well. For anyone traveling to SB for kite surfing or mountain biking he would surely be a great resource for information.
We stayed at Burke’s place only one night.
Burke was extremely likable and considerate.
The room was perfect for our needs : small but very bright, clean and cosy.
Very good value for money !
Chez Burke, ont se sentais comme à la maison.
Ont avait une petite chambre, de quoi ranger nos affaire et dormir.
L'emplacement de la maison de Burke est incroyable, ont loge dans les hauteurs de Santa Barbara, une place privé pour la voiture est aussi inclus, la plage est à 10 minutes en voiture et le centre ville à 5 minutes.
Burke à une cage à oiseaux, il nous à laissé les caresser et les prendre dans les mains, il nous à aussi invité au restaurant ou ont avaient tout les plats moitiés prix, ont est passer par plusieurs logement Air BNB en Californie, mais celui ci restera notre plus gros coup de coeur.
Merci pour tout Burke
Our room in burkes house was clean and quiet. The neighborhood is fantastic. Burke was very nice to talk to and gave us useful advices what to do and where to have dinner in santa Barbara. We only stayed there for one night, this is a pity, because santa Barbara is really a nice place where is much more to see and do. The next time we would visit again.
Mille grazie al sig. Burke,annuncio preciso,camera piccola,ma pulita,quartiere tranquillo,leggermente distante dalla spiaggia((website hidden) auto),il proprietario è una persona molto gentile,ci ha aiutato a trovare alcuni punti di interesse nella zona-Lo consiglio vivamente-
Burke really cares about his guests - his information before we got to Santa Barbara on times were much appreciated and we always felt well informed. Burke was an easy-going host and instantly helpful when bombarded with questions and where to go in town and how to get there. We did not see each other much but had nice little talks - also on his baby birds. The room we stayed in is small but clean and very good for a one- or two-night stay. We followed his recommendations and had a nice day down in Santa Barbara. Thanks for letting us stay. We do recommend Burke's nice place that has a lot of wood and a lot of light - just like in the picture.
