I typically check people in and then I am available to answer questions or help out if I can anytime.
If people show that they want to interact I am happy to do so, if they don't want to interact I leave them alone.

The Neighborhood

Quintessential California Beach Community.
Gentrification and real estate values have changed most of Southern California's beach towns in one way or the other. The 'Mesa' is the name of this area of Santa Barbara, it's got a great vibe with smaller cottages and mid sized homes but very few Mc Mansions.. They neighbors won't stand for it so it remains as quaint as ever (except for the prices for the little cottages)..We have some of the most pristine beaches in the City of Santa Barbara here, Organic Produce stand, convenient shopping centers and restaurants.. Off leash Beach and Open Space/ Nature Preserve both in short walking distance..

Getting around

Bus stop nearby about 5 min walk in a safe area. Goes downtown or to UCSB

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Joshua was a great host, he left good instructions for us and left us to settle in and later stopped by for a chat to offer advice on local amenities. Josh's place was clean, quiet and comfortable and only a 2 min walk from Santa Barbara's wonderful white sandy beach yet also just a short drive from downtown. We had no complaints and would highly recommend it!

  • Joshua's place was perfect for my husband and I. The first thing I thought when I walked in was how clean it was. It was spotless!

    Joshua left coffee,1/2 &1/2, bananas and peaches for us, which was very unexpected. He was very friendly and helpful with restaurant and beach suggestions and anything else we needed help with, but left us to ourselves unless we needed something.

  • What an amazing spot! Josh was amazing as was his studio. So close to the dog-friendly beach, amazing weather, lovely accommodations. Josh is approachable and gave me and my pups some great tips on places to go. I'd love to go back and spend some more time in this peaceful place!

  • Casa Sevilla is the perfect place to stay for a romantic Santa Barbara getaway. It's clean and comfortable and well thought out. And Josh is a wonderful, gracious host. He went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. We can't wait to go back!

  • Josh was an amazing host. The place was everything we expected and more. Josh provided everything we needed; from information about local restaurants, shops, stores, bars, clubs to beach towels, chairs, umbrella, cooler, boogeyboard. Great neighborhood, very close driving distance to downtown SB. The place was a 5 minute walk away from the beach and a 5 minute walk away from a very nice park. Both the beach and park are off leash dog areas, so this is a great place if you are a dog owner. We absolutely loved our stay here, and will definitely rent this place again next time we are in Santa Barbara.

  • The location cannot be beat in Santa Barbara. You have the peace and quiet from being in a beautiful residential neighborhood just west of the harbor but still a block from one of Santa Barbara's most beautiful beaches. The view of Pacific from the cliff as you walk toward the beach is breathtaking.

    The studio apartment is very comfortable and nicely done.

    josh is a very friendly and cooperative host

  • This was my first Airbnb experience and I had a magnificent time. Joshua's place was roomier than I expected from the photos. It was stocked with all the basics needed like coffee, cream and fruit. Comfy bed. Quiet neighborhood. Great parking. Joshua and his dog Woody were a real pleasure to talk with as well. I'll be back for sure.

    June 2014
  • Josh's place was great! Seriously a two minute walk down the street to a beach access staircase. The patio outside of the house it nice and private with a tall fence and bamboo growing above that. A perfect location between the beach and downtown. We highly recommend the apartment.

  • Josh was great and the house was perfect for my husband and I… and had everything we needed. We arrived on the wrong date, and Josh was gracious and allowed us to change our dates -no problem. House is private, with its own entrance, and fenced in out door area, perfect for those with dogs. Its located very close to a stunning beach, which is also dog friendly. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

  • Josh was a great host and his place was fantastic. It had everything we needed for a quick getaway. A beautiful reserve and beach were literally less than a five minute walk away! While we didn't see Josh (we were pretty busy out an about) you can tell he takes pride in hosting guests. And it was so nice to have a cozy retreat to come back to at the end of the day. Hope to make it up again soon!

Hi I am Josh, I am 40 years old, grew up in Los Angeles County and moved to SB for college, and never left. I love Santa Barbara and all it has to offer. My interests include photography, music, surfing, dogs, reading, hiking, birding, gardening and generally enjoying nature.. Hosting through Airbnb has allowed me to meet some wonderful people that I hope to see again as return guests and old friends.. I try to be the best person I can be for myself, my community, my family and humanity at large by making good decisions and being aware of others needs.. I think this lends well to hosting and I am sure you will find your stay at Casa Sevilla a pleasant one. Josh
