Hi, my husband and I have lived in Santa Barbara for 30+ years, and have been married just as long. We have three kids, though all are grown now, or nearly so. My daughter does most of our managing for us for the cottage so you'll likely get to meet her too while you're here. We enjoy traveling (Costa Rica, Nepal and New Zealand are our favorites!), hiking, kayaking, and snorkeling, and are suckers for the perfect high tea (I am originally from England).
Welcome to our home town! We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do. If you have any questions on what might be fun while you're here, which restaurants to go to, etc. we are happy to help if you'd like a recommendation. We will fill you in on all the secret local favs!
