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.
If one of my sons is home they can also show you what you may need.Max is also familiar with the town and lots of the restaurants .

Such a beautiful quaint house, nestled in the foothills. Close to everything. Perfect for anyone that loves nature. The birds chirping are the best sound to hear while enjoying your morning cup of coffee. Will be coming back again!

It was a perfect space for me, very quiet, clean and tranquil. Burke was welcoming and his home has a nice minimalistic zen feel to it but with a comfortable rustic feel. All I needed was a place to sleep and it was perfect for my needs.

Burke's place was a convenient location because it is about a 10-15 minute drive to the beach and downtown area. The private room was perfect for no more than 2 people. We didn't hang out there much, only to sleep but it was comfortable. Would recommend for a couple of nights!

Burke's house is ideal for an overnight stay. 10-12 minutes drive from downtown Santa Barbara and the uber supply is plentiful (about $13 each way at night). Room/Bed is small but clean. Thanks Burke
