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. The space is ideal for six guests, but we may be able to accommodate extra guests up to eight for an additional $25 per person per night. We do not allow more than eight guests. Please send a message if you have a party over six, and we will discuss the options.
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 garage room. (It is a nice convertible full-size bed, quite comfortable, not one with one of those horrible bars). 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 Wii, an X-box, a large TV with DVD player, an excellent fiction and video collection, but no cable TV. Washer and dryer are also 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!

We felt very embarrassed and uncomfortable because the owners were staying outside the house in a camper that overlooked in the garden and the house was with the wide windows so we didn't have privacy and we felt observed.
The owner is not 'been very correct, because' in the ad was written that the house was for eight people but we paid an extra fee for the eighth person. She asked me to deposit the additional cost in the mailbox outside, we arrived at 1 am, so I thought that was not safe to leave the money in the mail-box during the night and to put the money the next day, but she send me a message at 9 am while I was sleeping asking about money.
The house was very nice as described and shown in the pictures.
The neighborhood was very quite and the location pretty good.
So I think that it's a nice place to spend day vacations but the owners should leave the house and not stay in the camper and they should be more clear in the announcement about the additional costs.
As was communicated very clearly prior to accepting the booking, we were staying on the property for the first night only as we were leaving for the bay area early the next morning. There was no observing or privacy issues. We feel the miscommunication issues were a result of the guests not reading or understanding the information provided on the Airbnb website and in private email exchanges.
Mari's home was great for our needs. It was in a great location, close to the beach and other popular destinations. I would recommend this place if you are looking for a weekend get away in SB!
We had a wonderful time at Mari and Erik's house. It's a beautiful home in a perfect area. The house has all the amenities you need. A fully equipped kitchen, two living rooms, and three bedrooms. Everything was clean and well cared for.
There are many great things to walk to from the house. Within 5 minutes you can walk up the hill and see a stunning view of the town of Santa Barbara and the ocean. If you walk 10 minutes in the other direction, you can be at Trader Joes, a bagel shop and Starbucks.
We had a lovely time and were very happy with the house. We would would stay there again!
Cozy house in perfect location, close to the beach and main attractions.
Wonderful and helpful hosts.
Très agréable maison, propre, confortable. Avec l
Tout le nécessaire. On s'y sent bien, comme à la maison. Merci, Mari!
Although we did not actually meet Mari, she was an excellent host. The house was clean and lovely, and Mari was great with communication through texts and emails months in advance when we made the booking as well as days before our stay and even throughout our stay. Everything went smoothly and we were very comfortable in her house. The pictures and descriptions are very accurate. Thank you for sharing your home with us, Mari! :)
The house is nice but seems not been properly cleaned. Bed in the garage hides some strange insects. One room upstairs has an ant nest, we wake up in the morning with ants on bed! The host charged us an extra cleaning fee for having one more kid however...

I am an English teacher at a private high school, and my husband Erik works in the non-profit sector of Santa Barbara. We are avid readers and writers, lovers of the outdoors, and highly value a good sense of humor. We are aficionados of fresh, local culinary experiences, the TV shows Mad Men and Breaking Bad, and we've even been known to throw Mad Men party or two, costumes and cocktail olives included! We like to travel during the summer and holidays (sometimes in our vintage Airstream trailer) and are excited to be able to share our lovely Santa Barbara home with others.
