Family man in love with my wife and two kids. We love to travel and explore our great country
Lovely house and garden, clean and comfortable. Martin responded to our questions quickly. Was great to stay in his house during our holiday.
Lovely space, very comfortable and quiet. WiFi worked great. Easy access to State Street, multiple restaurants and stores, 154 north and the 101. Neighborhood was great for early morning walks, and the hammock was a big hit early evening.
Also: we appreciated the warnings on beach tar -- my shoes were a victim, and could have left damage behind had we not been on the lookout. BTW, they cleaned up easily once back home with adhesive remover.
Guy was a very laid-back and helpful host---responsive to emails and made sure we had everything we needed. His home in Santa Barbara is fantastic and provided a comfortable place for my husband and my parents to stay for a wedding weekend. The kitchen is very spacious and comes well-equipped in case you had the desire to do a lot of cooking during your stay. The backyard provides a tranquil place to "retreat" especially with the hammock and fountain. The location is good---a 10 minute drive to State Street--but is not right in the middle of touristy areas, which is also nice. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for something besides an expensive hotel room in Santa Barbara! What a steal for the price and all the space you get!
Robert's house was wonderful! It's at least as nice as it looks in the pictures; it was very comfortable and provided a convenient home base for any and all activities in and around Santa Barbara. It was a great value, too.
We enjoyed our stay, the home was very nice. We very much enjoyed the peaceful and beautifully landscaped private back yard with the large table, roses, and fountain. Kitchen was large and great for cooking meals and standing around socializing. Access to highways was close but not too close. It was nice to have the aerobed as we had one couple and 2 singles in our party. Wifi was fine. I would stay again.

Thank you very much!
The Martins have been close friends of ours for 13 years now. We've known them since college, and now our kids are growing up together. They are very family oriented and involved in the community. They are great hosts! They have us over for family pizza night every Monday, where Guy shares some of his special homemade pizza creations. Their home is very clean and tidy and has a great warmth to it. They are very accommodating and flexible as well, and always have the best interest of the renter. I wouldn't ever hesitate to rent from them.
