Historic and eclectic working class neighborhood. Drive Alameda Padre Sierra to the Mission for an overview of town. Close to wine tasting and award winning local breweries. This is an urban multicultural neighborhood, as such there are people of all types walking around and talking to each other (this has bothered a tenant in the past)
The crosstown shuttle to state street and transit hubs picks up two blocks away ($1.75). Let us know if you would like us to leave you bikes. Parking is provided in the driveway.
Other Things to Note
No cable or coffee maker.
Given that this is Santa Barbara, there is no air conditioning. Similarly, considering the semi-tropical natural setting, no refunds will be given if a bug is discovered. The house is impeccably clean, and fans and natural ant cleaner are provided.
This is a friendly multicultural neighborhood, and there are often people using the sidewalks, and sometime sitting on the wall outside.
Close the fridge and freezer firmly, otherwise it will beep at you.
Due to the drought, we have switched to a low-flow shower head. Turn the water all the way to the left, and allow it to heat up using the bath spout before engaging the showerhead (otherwise it takes a long time).
Make sure the fridge/freezer is firmly closed.
No smoking indoors.
Do not use fireplace.
Let me know if you need hangers or want to use bikes.
If the fridge beeps at you, close it firmly.
Lock up and turn the lights off when you leave.
Treat our home like you would your own :)
Recycling is next to the stove, trash next to the fridge.
Please let me know if you specifically need any household items (e.g., blender, juicer) so that I can leave them out for your use.
In the event ants come inside (rare, and only when it is really hot) non-toxic ant killer is under the sink.
