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!
Richard was a good host, sharing his knowledge of Santa Barbara and the area over breakfast. Room is a small but cozy with a nice ensuite bathroom.
Neighborhood is residential, 40 min away from city center by walk and 15 min away from the beach.
We loved staying at Richard's place! The decor was beautiful and the whole place gave off a welcoming and calming vibe. The room and adjoining bathroom were very comfortable, clean, and cute. The neighborhood is very quiet, and you can easily walk to the beach. Having access to the kitchen and living room was great. We felt right at home and had everything we needed, including detailed suggestions of things to do around town. I would definitely stay here again!
We had a wonderful stay with Richard. He really thought of everything -- including getting us our favorite breakfast for the morning -- and was so accommodating when we hit traffic and showed up later than expected. The room was a perfect size for two people, and the bed was very comfy. Location was an easy car ride to everywhere, and Richard has some great recommendations on where to go. All in all, a perfect Airbnb experience!
As former alumni of UCSB, my friend and I were excited to squeeze a few days in to visit SB again after so many years. This house is a gem and in a wonderful location! We absolutely loved the Spanish decor and all the details all around the house. Our ensuite had everything we needed and was super clean and very comfortable. As all the previous reviews state, Richard was an amazing host and accommodating from beginning to end. Very pleasant to talk to and really made us feel right at home. We would definitely stay at Richard's again!
This home is very beautiful and peaceful. The host is gracious and very nice. My husband and I would prefer to stay here, rather than a hotel, when we return to Santa Barbara.
The decoration and Santa Fe theme of the home is perfectly appointed, and so interesting to see. I would highly recommend staying here; we can only say good things about the feeling and the experience you'll have staying at this wonderful home.
Right from the start, Richard was very friendly and accommodating. He had the place setup perfect, fresh towels, maps of the city, brochures of things to do and even offered several suggestions that made the stay well worth it. He is a solid provider with a top notch place to stay if you're ever in Santa Barbara. I will be staying here in the future if possible, thanks Richard!
