Shai's house is only a block and a half from downtown! Parking was easy to find! We ended up parking and walking everywhere we went. We didn't get to meet Shai but his directions were so easy and Shai had everything ready for us by the time of arrival. Everything was clean and comfortable.
This house is in a nice neighborhood walking distance to downtown SB. Shai's instructions for getting in were clear and easy. The accommodations are basic: A small bedroom with a (comfortable) queen bed, and access to a shared bathroom and kitchen. Shai is easy to communicate with and quick with responses. We made our reservations only about 48 hours before staying.
Shai is very easy to communicate with, which is probably my highest priority when I stay with Airbnb. Location unbeatable, with easy access to State Street and the beach. The room was comfortable and clean. I appreciated the parking pass - we just parked our car the whole weekend and walked everywhere.
Shai was a perfect host. Very accomodating and very knowledgeable about santa barbara. Also happy to provide recommendations about nearby atttractions and places to visit and eat. Location is also perfect being a mere 2 blocks to the heart of state and 5 blocks to the beach. Would definitely stay there again on our next trip and will happily recommend shai's home to my friends. Thank you shai. Until next time.
We had a quick one night stay at Shai's place in Santa Barbara. We actually booked it the night before. I was worried it was too last minute. But, nope -- it worked out and we had a wonderful stay.
The place was cozy and super close to all of the action on State Street. Close walk to bars, restaurants, wine tasting, and shops -- what more do you need?!
Also, Shai was SO on top of the communication. I really appreciate when people communicate all of the logistics, let you know what to expect, and ensure that everything runs smoothly for you. He did all of this and more!! A+++ for you!!!
If I'm ever in Santa Barbara again, I'll definitely stay here! Thanks a bunch.
Oh boy, Santa Barbara is a beautiful place - and Shai lives so close to everywhere, it's truly awesome. While I can't really confirm it's a totally quiet neighborhood (there in fact WAS some car noise - not like a main road though!) I do can confirm Shai is an incredible host! It didn't feel like renting a place from a stranger, rather staying at a friend's apartment. Even though the house is not totally up to date or comparable to one of those fancy 4-Star-hotels in SB, you totally feel at home suddenly. Shai is a friendly, welcoming, funny, laid-back and open-minded guy who I liked from the very first moment we met. "Check-In" and "Check-In" were totally no problem and, as the previous writers mentioned, Shai gave a lot of good advise. We even went to that bar around the corner together where I really had a good time. If I come to SB again I'll definitely consider staying with Shai again!
