Richard was a great host and his house is fantastic! I was in Santa Barbara for work and I felt right at home - so much better than staying in a hotel!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Richard's AirBnB! Richard was in London at the time but he left us in great hands with his fill in host Edie and her husband Robert. Edie made us feel very welcome right from the start! She gave us some helpful tips on places to eat and fun things to do. She was really laid back and was flexible with our schedule. She made us a wonderful breakfast every morning of fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, croissants and coffee that we ate on the deck with breathtaking views. It was the perfect way to start each day. The home is conveniently located close to the beach, to downtown Santa Barbara, and the quaint area of Montecito. We had so much fun we wish we could have extended our stay. This was our first experience with AirBnB and we will definitely do it again. We would highly recommend Richard's beautiful home to anyone wanting an amazing place to stay in Santa Barbara!
I treated my husband to a surprise birthday trip up the California coast and by far this stop was our favorite! Richard's home is filled with amazing artwork and charm, the views and landscaping are all magical, and it's a very short drive to the beach and city. There's plenty of room in the house and outside and the bed was super comfy! We really didn't want to leave!! :-)
It was such a wonderful experience overall and we can't wait to come back and stay again!
My boyfriend and I had a lovely stay in Montecito at Richard's home. His photos do not do it justice! The room was very private, clean, and quiet. The fresh baked pastries at breakfast in the morning were a nice touch. The location was convenient to get to downtown Santa Barbara and beaches and nice hikes in Montecito but you definitely need a car. And you MUST go to El Sitio for tacos if you stay with Richard. My boyfriend and I went twice during our stay and wish we had time to go a third time.
If you're looking for a beautiful, quiet place to stay while you explore Santa Barbara and Montecito, this is the place for you.
Our experience was great. The host was very nice, the home was immaculate, and hospitality was excellent. Definitely recommend to others desiring to stay in Santa Barbara.
The room is big and clean. The host is very friendly. Choosing to stay here, you won't regret!
Richard was very hospitable and was available to help us maneuver around the city. The accommodations were lovely and fit well for our style, as was the breakfast in the morning.
The eclectic surroundings were a delight to our eyes, along with the outside deck to relax over a glass of wine in the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank-you.
Richard is a very welcoming host. My wife Julia and I were immediately at ease and felt comfortable. It was easy to engage in interesting conversations. We asked for his diner suggestions which were spot on.
House, garden and views are spectacular. The room was better than advertised. Good nights sleep and excellent breakfast - thanks Richard, we'll be back next time around!
Always feel so welcome and comfortable in Richards' beautiful home. Beware, that this place seriously will ruin you for any other AirBnB though. It's perfect!
Thanks again Richard. Already looking forward to my next visit.
