I live in Santa Barbara and like to windsurf....I usually rent from Neil Pryde Maui to gear
We tried to find a place to stay at the very last moment since we did not make any plans for our California road trip. Greg saved our day! He replied very quick and tried to help us. He rented out his place with great hospitality, where we were very welcome and had a good night's sleep. Comfy bed, nice house, cool roommate and calm atmosphere... Great for yoga lovers. Thanks Greg!
This was the first time for to stay in someones home. But hotels in the area of Santa Barbara were either sold out or very overpriced.
So I rented a room in this cute old house in the Mesa of Santa Barbara for 2 nights. It is walking distance from the beach. The beach access has 230 stairs. Perfect for an aerobic workout.
Prior to renting it, I asked the host, whether it was clean and quiet.
The house is clean and the neighborhood mostly quiet.
Due to the fact that the old house has its original single pane windows, one can hear if something goes on outside (dogs barking, leaf blower talking etc.). The house is very charming though.
Greg, the host is a very friendly and caring man. He made sure I had
everything I needed, checked back to me by phone and left his house
to stay somewhere else. The other two renters were gone most of the time as well.
it worked out perfectly for me!
Very nice couple. Easy-going & fun.
