Enter through your own separate and private gated yard into a newly constructed modern studio at the end of a sleepy cul-de-sac. Enjoy the relaxing, peaceful vibe on the new patio with the baby fruit trees or soak in the deep soaker tub. Our home is out of the way of the typical tourist area, but only 10 minutes from downtown, 10 minutes from the beach, and 35 from wine country.
We are on a half-acre at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac living with our roommate and three dogs. We have space to share so we built a detached studio and gave it its own private yard, full kitchen, and bathroom. The studio comfortably sleeps two adults, but ask us about kiddo accommodations.
The newly built efficiency studio features modern design, with sharp lines, raised ceilings, and polished concrete floors. It shares no common wall with the house and is only attached by a short hallway locked at both ends. The private yard and French door entryway face west, whereas the main house faces east, creating a separate and quiet space. There is a simple but full kitchen with a stove, refrigerator, coffee maker, and dishes. We will include coffee and lite snacks so you don’t have to run for munchies once you’re settled in. The bathroom features a deep, insulated, soaker tub with rain type shower head, and complete set of towels. There is a built in closet with mirrored doors that can accommodate full length dresses. Inside you’ll find beach towels and extra bedding. Let us know if you’d like to borrow our beach bags, chairs, and boogie boards to go with the beach towels! We have wireless internet and Roku loaded Netflix and Amazon Prime on a flat screen TV. Enjoy the comfy queen bed with great bedding. Due to the mild weather in Santa Barbara, it’s only hot-hot about three weeks a year and only cold for three weeks of the year, there aren’t many air conditioners in private homes. We built in a hotel quality air conditioner/heat pump, used thick drywall, dual pane windows, and extra insulation to create the most comfortable environment we could. No smoking inside the studio.
Guests will have access to all amenities in the studio, private yard, and dedicated parking in a large shared driveway. Guests are kindly requested not to enter the main home or yard.
We are here to host your home away from home. When possible we love meeting our guests, many of which become friends. If you have questions about Santa Barbara or help finding anything please let us know. We have two roommates and three dogs, most of whom you’ll never see, but we request respectful interaction. Our house is quiet from 10pm to 7am and request our guests keep quiet hours from 11pm-7am.
Take a bag to the store with you, new SB ordinance! Grocery bags cost $.10 each, no more plastic here. Please let us know if you’d like grocery bags.
Hi There, I'm Ben. My wife Cate and I are loving our lives in gorgeous Santa Barbara so much that we want to share the experience. I work as a software engineer for a medical data company and Cate owns a clothing store in wine country.
We love great food, wine, travel, and I’ve been getting into gardening and starting to get our little abode going with baby fruit trees. And of course the beach! Cate brings the dogs and Ben brings the boogie boards.
We are thrilled to be a part of the airbnb community and want everyone who visits to fall as in love with our little city as we are!
