Bright, airy and open loft bedroom in downtown Santa Barbara. Ideal Location! Walking distance to beach or downtown, with mall, farmers' market, movie theaters, etc. Two blocks from the entrance to highway 101.

No pets / No smoking please.

Bathroom and living room are shared with just me. (Well, my cat may make an appearance, too...)

Feel free to contact me with questions.

I provide coffee and tea for the morning, but not food. (Everyone likes something different...) I can recommend several local cafes and restaurants nearby that you'll love. I'm less than a 5 minute walk to Starbucks, a 5-minute drive to Whole Foods, and walking distance from tons of fabulous restaurants and downtown shopping. And I'm a quick 35 minute jaunt from some of the best Central Coast wineries (about 50 of them!).

I prefer not to book 1-3 night reservations farther than 3 months in advance. So 3 months in advance up to the same day is fine. If you need 4+ nights, you're welcome to submit reservations up to 6 months in advance.

A little about me: I'm very energetic, considerate, and friendly. I love hosting guests and I look forward to having you here!

  • I found myself in Santa Barbara at 6:00 at night without a room and no vacancies. I contacted Lia through Airbnb and had a wonderful place to stay. It was close enough to downtown to enjoy a beer before bed time. Thanks Lia.

  • Open airy room. Convenient location - quick walk to town and the amtrak station.
    Lia was great and super responsive / accommodating

    March 2014
  • Lia's house was great! You can walk ten minutes to go to State St., which is the downtown area where *almost* everything happens. The bed is huge and comfy. The only less comfortable part was the construction that was going on Cota St. during my stay, and I could hear everything in the morning.. Other than that, very nice stay! Thanks Lia!

    Response from Lia:

    Thanks for the positive review, Zijun! I hope the rest of your trip has been safe and fun!

  • Lia has a cute upstairs room in a quiet, safe neighborhood only 3 1/2 blocks from State Street which is the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. The room is large, airy, and quiet comfortable. There is a small refrigerator available in the room. The only issue is having to go downstairs to use the bathroom.

    Thanks for the positive review, Michael! I hope you arrived home safely and had a wonderful trip!

  • Lia's house is in a neighborhood, within walking distance to shops, dining, the beach, and the yoga studio I really wanted to visit. The accommodations are simple, clean, fresh, and shared. I loved being able to wake up in the morning and walk to my destination. Also appreciated the espresso maker by the bed :) Thank you , Lia!

    Thanks for the positive review, Cole! I hope you both arrived home safely and had a wonderful trip! Looking forward to seeing you again when you're in the SB/LA area!

  • Lia was a terrific host and the room was very comfortable. She also provided some helpful suggestions on where to find late night dinner and cocktails.

    Also- The cappuccino machine next to the bed is a great bonus.

  • I like to walk and the location of this establishment is great! Within walking distance of Amtrak, the shoreline, and downtown. The loft room was spacious, clean, and private. The owner, Lia, is welcoming, friendly, yet respected my privacy and independence, and I, hers. I certainly recommend this place if you are seeking a super location and don't mind sharing a bathroom.

    February 2014
  • Lia is a great host with a place in a great location, walking distance to the beach and tons of shopping/restaurants. She was very accommodating and easy to talk to. Would definitely recommend her place to anyone staying in Santa Barbara.

    January 2014
