Though we cater to guests with dogs & our rates are priced according to this convenience, we welcome couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. Our place is sunny, spacious, on bike path to beach, UCSB, near bus stop & outdoor activities. Guests like the side gate entrance because they can come and go at leisure in family friendly neighborhood.
--RATES ARE NOT NEGOTIABLE.
--STAYS OVER TEN DAYS REQUIRE ADDITIONAL RENTAL APP & APPROVAL PRIOR TO BOOKING.
Your home away from home. Clean, spacious, with panoramic windows, full of light, airy, and with a fenced yard for our furry guests.
CONVENIENCES OF HOME
Microwave, coffee maker, small refrigerator. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, beach towels and a beach chair. 1 Large doggy bed, doggy bowls and filtered water for the pooches.
We cater to guests with pets as an added value service and perk. If you are a guest without pets and decide to book our property anyway, please be aware that this is not the Ritz. It's a home after all, with all the kinks and imperfections, and may not be suitable for you or live up to your expectations of a regular hotel. (Interestingly enough, we get most of our highest ratings from very satisfied guests with pets) :-)
Please be sure to read our entire listing and house rules before booking.
This is a master suite/bedroom with a side gate entrance and lots of privacy.
Sorry, there is no access to the kitchen nor the rest of the house. We respect your privacy and hope you do the same. You may not see much of us in this 4200 sq. ft. home, but please know we are close by with just a text during the day, from 7:00 am t 9:00 pm.
Interakcija s gostima
We live in the property, not always visible but always available with a quick text.
We have two Aussies in the house, so you may hear them from time to time.
QUIET HOURS: 9 p.m. to 7 a.m.
Please be mindful of the fact that the adjacent room may be occupied.
- No loud music or sound during night hours. This is a room with a side gate entrance, facing the side yard and spa (out of service) in a very quiet neighborhood.
TOWELS & LINENS: Given the current drought, we are happy to provide a set of fresh sheets/bedding for any stays under a 7-day week, or we may change them once upon request for stays over 3 days. Please let us know if you require additional linens and will try to accommodate as possible. At the end of your stay please be sure to place the used towels on the bathroom counter.
MAKING THE BED: Please consider that this is a home-away from home, not a hotel, and we do not come into your room unnecessarily, nor do we make the bed daily -unless specifically requested.
SIDE-YARD: A small coal BBQ is provided for your convenience, should you decide to cook a steak or BBQ. If you shop for food at the nearby supermarkets, please remember to bring your own charcoal. There is also a small clay chimney which must never be left unattended while in use. Additionally, the side yard is a shared common space and there may be others outside using it during your stay, but more than likely not.
PARKING & VISITORS
Street parking right in front of the house in this very quiet cul-de-sac neighborhood with only bikers and local traffic. Please do NOT block mailbox.
Because this is a very quiet home, overnight visitors or parties are not allowed. Side yard BBQ gatherings for more than 2 guests may be considered with 24-hour advance request.
The room is spacious with panoramic views of the backyard, but reservation is limited to 2 GUESTS maximum, and 2 DOGS maximum of any size.

DOGS MUST NEVER BE LEFT ALONE IN ROOM OR UNATTENDED.
We recommend booking a sitter through Rover.
------ISSUES OR QUESTIONS DURING YOUR STAY?
We cater to guests with pets as an added value service and perk. If you are a guest without pets and decide to book our property anyway, please be aware that this is not the Ritz.

----NEEDS OR ISSUES?
Should you need anything during your stay, or should you encounter an issue with the property, please do let us know in real time, so we can do something about it, and not raise grievances or give bad reviews after the fact, when nothing can be done to remediate a situation. We try hard to ensure a pleasant stay, and we look forward to hosting you again.
- Quiet hours: 9:00 pm to 7:00 am
FOR GUESTS WITH PET:
we do love and welcome dogs.
Because we have two Aussies at home, (6 & 9 years old) we have implemented some house rules such as:
----Your pet must be reasonably quiet, socialized, potty trained and
----pets must never be left unattended in the property or the room, even if they are crated. If guests need to go places where pets are not allowed, we can recommend local dog sitters whose hourly rates are reasonably priced and paid separately from the room rate. Please feel free to inquire for referrals.
----Guests are responsible for picking up after their pets.
OUR PETS are curious and eager to meet new people and pets, and may try to visit your space, and we will make every effort to keep them away from guests at all times, but guests may hear them whine or bark from time to time, or see them roaming the backyard.
PET SITTERS -We can make recommendations on local pet sitters and walkers, upon request and charged separately from the room fees paid on Airbnb.
---SOME MORE HOUSE RULES
---Please park in front of the house and DO NOT BLOCK THE MAILBOX.
---Please do not ring the doorbell of the main entrance. (Doggies go nuts!).
If you arrive during regular daytime hours, we will be expecting you and welcome you personally.
---IF ARRIVING AFTER HOURS: Upon your arrival kindly FACE THE HOUSE AND go directly to the inconspicuous side gate located to the left of the house (OPPOSITE THE DRIVEWAY). We will text you in advance the secret location of the key.

I would say I fit the profile of the chatty inn-keeper, so will try not to disturb our guests, unless they have questions. There's much to do around Santa Barbara, and as one who used to drive up here on weekends, I can tell it is nice to find a home away from home, and because the room has a separate side entrance, our guests can feel free to make this private room/studio-like setting sort of their own pied-à-terre and return as often as possible.
