The Space

Visit Santa Barbara: The American Riviera!

There is room for all your family members in this kid-friendly, newly remodeled home in a quiet neighborhood on Santa Barbara's East Side. Six beds (see description below) accommodates up to eight people. We do not allow more than eight guests.

Charming Southern California home with wooden floors and exposed ceiling beams. Upstairs master bedroom has a king bed, second upstairs bedroom has two twin beds, and downstairs bedroom has twin bunk beds. The home is ideal for six guests, but there is an option to accommodate additional guests in a pull-out double bed in converted (attached) garage. Please email about if you have a party over six, and we will discuss the options. House includes a gourmet kitchen, two bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a bath/shower combo.

A large deck with outdoor furniture and small BBQ in a secluded garden will allow you to take full advantage of Santa Barbara's gorgeous summer weather. No charge for the hummingbird shows!

We offer free Internet access, including Netflix, an X-box, a large TV with DVD player, an excellent fiction and video collection, but no cable TV. Washer and dryer available.

A five-minute walk to Trader Joes, a fifteen-minute walk to the beautiful East Beach and Cabrillo Blvd (which leads to the pier and harbor), and a five-minute drive to downtown SB make this house a prime location for your upcoming vacation!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Although there were some ants in the house, it was clean and comfortable and definitely roomy enough for 7 people. Mari was very welcoming and responsive, and when we arrived she did a great job of walking us through all the features of the house. Parking was easy, and the house's location was fantastic: close to the beach and downtown, and Trader Joe's was just down the street. On a side note, the place might be a little better for families rather than couples due to all the small beds.

  • Mari is a great host, always responding to my questions fast, providing information via email in advance and also leaving detailed instructions in the house. The house itself is very comfortable and well equipped. It is located on a quiet street, but close to stores, beach, freeway and downtown Santa Barbara.
    Great place to stay. Thank you Mari!

  • Stayed at Mari's house for a girls' weekend, and it was the perfect spot. It was a little hot without the A/C, but Mari made sure we knew where all the fans were to make it as comfortable as possible. Mari's communication made it easy to check in and find everything we needed in Santa Barbara.

  • Good location with access to downtown and beaches.

  • We are a family of seven who stayes in SB for two nights. For frost-hardened Norwegians a house in sunny California without AC is really warm at night, but apart from that the house is magnificent. The garage has been turned into an extra bedroom and this is quite damp, but we managed to fit everyone in the other rooms. Street parking was not a problem and getting to and from downtown is a breeze. Highly recommended!

  • This home is spacious and in a great location. I stayed with a group of 8 total, and we all had comfortable beds (although 1 couple had to get cozy on bunk beds). The common area and kitchen were roomy enough for all of us to make and eat our lunches/breakfasts without getting in each others' way. The backyard was a perfect spot to relax.

    There are a few places you can walk to, including a grocery store and the beach, but I found that having a car was really helpful for getting around the city from this house.

    The neighborhood was quiet and mostly families from what I could see.

    I'd definitely recommend this house, and I'd stay here again!

  • We enjoyed our stay at the house. Santa Barbara is such a compact community and this house was by everywhere we wanted to visit.
