I am glad to share beautiful Santa Barbara with my guests. I welcome you to enjoy the mountains, the ocean, the culture and the quiet.

This is a beautiful home in a quiet and private area of Montecito. The home is spacious and well equipped and the kitchen opens into the living area which was great for socializing. The backyard looks towards the mountains and is a wonderful spot to soak in the hot tub. There was plenty of parking and the location is close enough to the grocery store for quick trips. The beds were comfy and the two bathrooms are well appointed. Nori was always very responsive and accommodating. This was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend this home to anyone! There was a tenant in a studio at the rear of the property, but we didn't have any interaction and didn't feel infringed upon.
Response from Nori:
Just a clarification on the caretaker. I have someone who helps with the house and is there to help any and all airbnb guests with questions and needs. I feel lucky to have her help and know that many a guest has called on her.
We spent two lovely months at Nori's this winter. We were extremely comfortable and immediately felt right at home. Nori was an attentive host and did what ever was needed to make this an exceptional trip. When we had a problem with the tv, there was soneone at the door within 30 minutes to fix it.
She was helpful with suggestions and tidbits to help us find our way around town. The house was roomy, airy and had plenty of room to entertain. Our dog was in heaven in the large fenced yard which had beautiful views of the mountains. To top it off we had spectacular weather. We hated to leave when our time was up!! All I can say is Thank You Nori.
We recently stayed at Nori's lovely house over the Thanksgiving holiday. The house is spacious and welcoming and situated in a beautiful part of Montecito. It was the perfect place for our family Thanksgiving. Nori's kitchen was well-stocked with anything we might have forgotten at the grocery store, we loved having use of the piano, and perhaps most of all, the wonderful outdoor hot tub overlooking the mountains and stars. Would come back in a heartbeat!
This charming home was everything we could have asked for and more.
Style, comfort, location…it had it all.
Would return again and again!
Nori's home is so comfortable and cozy! It truly reflects her personality and kind nature.
My friends and family stayed in her home for 3 days and absolutely LOVED it! We only went in to town once, to go to the farmers market! We stayed in the house, cooked big breakfasts and dinners, picked fruit from her trees, hung out in the jacuzzi and sat around the living room fireplace telling stories! Every one of our friends said that this was the best place we have stayed so far!
If you want a relaxing, cozy place to stay, Nori's house is it! She was so helpful in guiding us in the right direction as far as things to do in the area and where to go. We will be back ... soon!
Our family was so fortunate to stay at Nori's beautiful home. The house is so spacious and well equipped. We truly enjoyed our relaxing stay and we couldn't have found a better home to share our memories. We look forward to our next visit and will definitely book this home again!
This home is beautiful! It is a lot bigger than it looks too! We stayed there with two other couples. We each had a room, but one extra friend decided to crash with us and stayed in the spacious den! I would stay here again! Highly recommend!
6 of us and our dog had a perfect stay -- Nori was completely helpful in coordinating the arrangements (we came from San Francisco, the others from L.A. where it was hot hot hot -- not so in Santa Barbara!), and we were thrilled with the beauty/tranquility of the setting and the house itself, so much so that Sunday we stayed in rather than going out, cooked breakfast, barbecued lunch & roasted dinner in her very well-equipped kitchen, walked the dog, watched tennis & football & hung out with one another.
Saturday we had gone to town and seen a great John Lennon art show, strolled State St. & had lunch. All in all a perfect r & r weekend.
Also it was very nice having DeDe the caretaker available to help us with a few questions we had about the t.v.
We had a wonderful time at Nori's house, it was great for a group of friends. The place is very spacious, all of the rooms are well kept and comfy. The outside area is lovely, we would definitely stay there again.
My three sisters and I stayed at Nori's beautiful home for a week this past August. The setting, the home, the experience could not have been more picturesque or idyllic. The home is light, bright, quiet and serene; the quintessential Santa Barbara home, with plenty of room for us to gather together and play board games, cook fabulous meals, and relax and enjoy the peace and quiet, fabulous views, and each others company. True indoor/outdoor living made this home, and our vacation, an experience we won't ever forget. Nori was thoughtful, accommodating, and we delighted in the little touches she used to welcome us (trail mix and hiking guides were laid out upon arrival, as she knew we wanted to enjoy the outdoors; a lovely welcome to her house).
We created some wonderful memories here, and can't wait to hopefully come back some day.
