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 .
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.

cozy place in a great location of Santa Barbara; Burke has a great little garden, and the spot made the trip have such a southern cali ambience. thanks for playing host to both of us, and for having that extra futon!
Burke's house is absolutely perfect. We also met his two sons, nice and ready to help. We had a perfect stay in this place.
The home was elegant and in a nice neighborhood, albeit too far to walk to State st. Lovely morning sun. A little smaller than expected but quite comfortable.
Burke was very friendly with us and his house is clean and peaceful. The bed was comfortable and the sheets and towels were washed before our venue. It is well placed, not far from the center of Santa Barbara and If you are looking for nice places to visit just ask to Burke who knows many things about SB and neighbourhoods. We recommend this place for your stay in SB.
Thank you so much for your kindness Burke
We've had a nice stay at Burke's! He is a very relaxed and sporty person. The neighborhood is very quite and safe. To get to the beach a car for transportation is highly recommended. We stayed in a room that was not designated for airbnb guests, because it was occupied by 3 other guest. It did not bother us, but it could get crowded. (For example using the bathroom.)
Burkes place is lovely and he is a very relaxed and welcoming host. I stayed here with my 2 teenage daughters and we all felt extremely comfortable and safe. I highly recommend.
Burke was a great host. He has a lovely home that is close to the main part of town. The room was clean and the bed was extremely comfortable! Would definitely recommend.
