The Space

We are a professional couple offering a private furnished master bedroom with ensuite full bathroom. All utilities and wireless internet are included and there is laundry on site. We are located near the crossroads of Santa Barbara, easy access to the Back Country, Downtown, UCSB and the Gaviota Coast.

This is a really nice neighborhood located in a canyon at the base of the foothills of Santa Barbara with lots of greenery and wildlife around. The back garden has a sundeck and a patio with picnic table where you can enjoy the tranquility and sun.

The house is located just 3 miles from nearest shopping center and only 8-10 min drive from the city of Santa Barbara, where we have fun shopping and great restaurants. Also the harbor tour companies offers some of the worlds best whale watching year round and sunset cruises.
We have lived 20 years in Santa Barbara, and have extensive knowledge of greater Santa Barbara metro and all of California . We have had travelers from all over the world stay with us, as well as traveled ourselves to over 40 countries. We look forward to welcoming you and recommending you the best adventures here on the beautiful California Central Coast. Maps and tours available upon request.

Guest Access

The back garden has various seating areas for a enjoying a cup of tea or coffee. If mandarins are in season, please feel free to pick some.
Though cooking facility is not available, there is a shelf in refrigerator available for storing cold foods and drinks.
Laundry is $5 per load, includes soap, and dryer use.

Interaction with Guests

We try to gauge how much interaction our guests are interested in via the initial correspondence or upon arrival as everyone have different needs in this aspect. We always make ourselves available via email and mobile phone as well , that way if guests prefer a quick text instead of a face to face conversation , they have us attending them just as well.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is backed up to Tucker Grove Park and the foot hills and brings us an abundance of wildlife in the gardens. Our garden is bee/butterfly friendly and we have lots of birds coming to our bird baths and a lot of local plants and flowers to attract humming birds. The neighborhood is quiet and safe to walk in.

Getting around

We have plenty of parking on the street in front of the house. Taxi ride from SBA airport cost about $15-$20 depending on time of day.
Though there are some infrequent buses from Cathedral Oaks road, we recommend renting a car to get around in Santa Barbara or California in general.

  • Christina and Geoffrey have the perfect place for us. A spacious room in a very quiet area. It was very clean and sweetly decorated. The location was very good for us because it is close to UCSB. Christina and Geoffrey are very friendly and make excellent hosts. We'll be very happy to visit again.

  • The room in Christina & Goeffreys home was big, clean and very silent (incl. the whole neighbourhood). The bad was very comfortable and we had a great sleep! Geoffrey and Christina are very friendly and recommended us interesting places in Santa Barbara area. We would definitely come back again. It was a pleasure!

  • We really enjoyed and liked Geoffrey and Christina. We didn't need much from them but when we did they were very accommodating. I had asked for an iron and ironing board late in our pre-stay communications. When we arrived the iron and board were in the room and worked so well pressing the suit I was to wear at the wedding we attended. Their knowledge of the area was extremely helpful. We took advantage of several of their suggestions which greatly improved our experience of the Santa Barbara area. The neighborhood is very quiet and pleasant. The man across the street, a retired fireman, greeted us one morning while walking his dogs and wished us a pleasant day. That should give you an idea of the neighborhood they live in. The room with attached bath is large and comfortable. The personal interaction we had with Geoffrey and Christina made us feel welcome and comfortable in their home. The greatest part of going to someone's home instead of a hotel is the personal tough, the interaction with someone who cares about your vacation experience and we did receive that from our hosts.

  • Lovely room in a quiet neighborhood. Geoff and Christina were very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely return! I especially enjoyed drinking my morning coffee out in the backyard and watching the birds.

    As noted in the description, if you don't have a car (or bike) this can be a challenging location to be based at. Public transit options are very limited - plan accordingly.

  • My stay was very relaxing and restful. I was pleasantly surprised with the layout of this room and cleanliness of the bathroom. A pitcher of water was left for me to use for tea or drink water.

    I would have no problem staying here again.

  • The room is lovely and comfortable. We were visiting relatives for the weekend so hardly saw Geoffrey & Christina. They greeted us warmly and then we were off. Nice, quiet neighborhood too.

    April 2014
  • Both Christina & Geoff are super nice. Made us feel so welcome! Christina's thoughtfulness and attention to detail (the elegant décor; the pitcher of water, glasses and hot pot for teas & coffee; extra seating & cushions; en suite bathroom; long foyer table; local travel guides; and easy communication) made this one of the most delightful vacation experiences ever. And I can't get over that cozy canopy bed. Would I go back? In a heartbeat.

  • A wonderful experience with great hosts. A bit stressed due to upcoming Fair = bring a bottle of wine! I'm moving to Santa Barbara the end of the month.
