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!

If you prefer having the place completely to yourself, go to my other listing: http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/732740

  • Lia's place is clean and comfortable and little kiku is a wee charmer :)

    July 2014
  • I had my first airbnb experience with Lia, and I have to say that I had such a great time staying at hers. From Master Kiku(cat) welcoming us at the front door to Lia showing us the entire place, my girlfriend and I can't wait to plan our next visit to Lia's again.

  • Lia's place is perfectly located in downtown Santa Barbara 10 min walk from the beach and restaurants and bars. The room is sunny, well equipped and quiet and the bed is really comfortable. Lia's was a very nice host. She gave us tips and info about the town and was available for any questions we may have. You have two options when you rent the place: you can either share it with Lia's or have the place by yourself. If you pick option 1 just note that the room you are renting is not closed by a door although it is upstairs. We were not bothered by it at all but it's something to know.

    Thanks for the positive review, Meike! Hope your transition to campus went smoothly.

  • Lia (email hidden), friendly and provided suggestions on sights to see in Santa Barbara. Her house is at a great location close to State St and the beach. One thing to note about the listing was that it didn't mention the loft bedroom didn't have a door. The loft is at an upper floor while Lia stayed downstairs. The loft is connected to the downstairs with a staircase. Lia never came upstairs but if you're keen on privacy, it might be an issue. Apart from that the listing was exactly as described and Lia (email hidden).

  • Lia's place is Santa Barbara was the perfect fit. It was clean, cozy and organized, i.e. wifi password next to the bed and other awesome little nuances
    that make any stay that much better. Lia is great, she gave me tips about the town, was very easy to share common spaces with we even discovered a mutual friend which is always a great sign. Thanks Lia!
