About the Owner

We are long time Santa Barbara residents who absolutely love living in Santa Barbara and truly make the most of living here. Tim grew up in Santa Barbara surfing at all the great local surf spots that the Central Coast has to offer. Shruti moved here to attend UCSB and never wants to move again! Together, we enjoy spending time with our 2 beautiful kids and our wonderful friends.

We love drinking local wines, eating at our great restaurants, hiking the local mountains and spending time at the beach...what a life!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to send you a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay in your house. We loved the colors that you chose for each room and all of the textures with the stones, tiles and wood. The front yard felt straight out of Sunset magazine and I loved the deep porch. Great taste and great place.

We had a fabulous time in Santa Barbara! Our first impression of this great city was this amazing house. Great location, beautifully decorated, well maintained! The kids were so excited with the orange tree. We had fresh squeezed juice every morning....they are STILL talking about it! Thank you making our stay so wonderful and relaxing. Great communication prior to our arrival and even still after! Thanks for the memories!

Perfect for a girls weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is located 10 minutes from downtown and the beach and is walking distance to a grocery store. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep. I would certainly recommend this home to anyone looking for a coastal escape.

Nice Location and backyard for Graduation celebration!

  • 4 of 5

The description of this listing fit it well. It was clean and close to all attractions Santa Barbara and nearby area has to offer. We had 8 people that was a little snug, but we made it work.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

Girls weekend. The house was great for our needs. We spent most of our time away from the house but we were very comfortable while there. Loved the backyard and all of us spent a little time relaxing in the hammock. There were four of us so the space was great. Initially we were going to be 7 and I think that would have been too many for this space, so it worked out that a few of our party had to cancel. Good location and the owners were very nice and responsive. Good location, easy walk to State Street and local beach, cheap Uber rides almost everywhere else.

The yard is the best feature

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Santa Barbara and found the proximity of this property ideal for exploring. Our favorite aspect of the house was the large and private yard. It was especially valuable as we were traveling with dogs so it allowed for plenty of play and lounge space. While the home was cozy it did show opportunity for updates and elevated cleanliness. The owners were pleasant to engage with and were always available and responsive when needed. Overall, we had a great experience.

Great place to relax at home, but even better for experiencing all Santa Barbara has to offer!

  • 5 of 5

We spent five days with 8 adults, although there was only two days when everyone stayed at the house at the same time. There was plenty of room for everyone, including a great spot in the separate small building in the back with a futon for two!

The outdoor shower and Jucuzzi were used every evening by the majority of those who stayed. The orange tree was still full of ripe fruit and fresh squeezed juice available each day. We were running in the Santa Barbara Half Marathon and so we had plenty of activities to do outside the house, but for those who wanted to stay at home this was a comfortable and relaxing place to do so.

Those in our party paired up to share the beds in the three bedrooms (including the one outside) and they were all very sufficient for our use. Realistically you'll want to have 3-6 adults and perhaps children who could sleep on the sofa futon.

We had a vehicle, but enjoyed the walks to State Street where all the coffee, shopping (H&M, Urban Outfitters, Lulu, Lucky Brand, etc) and wide variety of restaurants you'd want were available. It it was a 5 minute drive (15 minute walk if w/o beach stuff) to LeadBetter beach. We never felt unsafe walking after dark and the neighborhood was pleasant and quiet.

Our hosts were very accessible to answer any questions, but everything was setup so perfectly that there was little need once we checked in. The house was well stocked and everything was in great working order.

I would highly recommend this to anyone coming to Santa Barbara and we plan to rent it again for next year's half marathon!
