We had a fantastic time in Santa Barbara, which was made possible by Richard having us to stay in his immaculate house. He was such a generous host who went out of his way to make sure we had a good stay. He went and bought breakfast items for us, after asking what sort of thing we like. He always checked in with us that we were OK but gave us plenty of space. In terms of the room, it was perfect and actually better than most b&bs we have stayed in! Comfortable bed, good shower with some local soaps to use, and plenty of local information. We even got to hire Richard's cruising bikes for a day's Cycling around Santa Barbara. He had put in so much effort and attention to detail (facetowels to remove makeup, instructions on coffee machine etc) to make our stay as smooth as possible.
Excellent airbnb experience. Richard's room is exactly as described and in exceptional order- it is truly like staying at a professional b&b! Very comfortable bed, high quality linen and towels, hairdryer, immaculately tidy and clean home, fully equipped kitchen and beautiful garden. Richard goes to every length to make you feel welcome; provided great SB advice& fabulous beach cruiser bikes. His breakfasts are also super.
The location is in a safe neighbourhood, residential and quiet with ease of access to the beach front and a short distance to grocery stores if required.
We would highly recommend this wonderful home and room, thank you Richard!
We had a really great stay at Richard's place! Richard himself is amazingly attentive and considerate and the room is like a 5 star hotel room with a nice ensuite bathroom. The location is excellent, a quiet street only 5 min driving from SB centre and only 10 minutes by beach cruiser bike which Richard rents out.
Our stay was outstanding. Richard is an extremely gracious and kind host who made us feel very welcome. The room and his home are beautifully decorated and impeccable. The house has a great location, and the kitchen and living room are comfortable and well-appointed. There is a very nice deck area with lovely peaceful landscaping. If it is available, we would absolutely love to return.
Wonderful stay! Richard was clear in the directions and the description of the space, and we were pleased with the beauty, cleanliness and convenience for us, in this lovely home. Hospitality and warm décor, beautiful garden. We'd love to stay when we return to SB!
