Fully furnished with complete kitchen and hardwood bamboo floors. Enjoy the fresh ocean air on the outdoor deck furnished with table and chairs for dining.
Separate master bedroom, lots of storage and closet space. Full bathroom with shower/bath tub. Cal king bed (memory foam topper) and 51 inch flat screen TV, cable and DVD player. Free WIFI. Perfect for couples visiting UCSB and Santa Barbara visitors.

Kathy purchased this apartment in 1996
We purchased this home and the second story was built as a separate unit. Separate paver-stone private entrance from the street with your own front door.
This apartment is a little home away from home! Everything in this unit is clean, well-stocked and updated. You can cook for yourself or walk to restaurants nearby. Starbucks, Trader Joes and Outback are less than a block away. Fresh air and sunshine are yours since this apartment is our entire second story of our house!
I have stayed at this property three times in the last year. It was my best discovery in the Goleta area, I wish I would have found it sooner! With a son at UCSB its a great getaway for a quick visit in a nice, clean and very comfortable unit. It is a short drive back and forth between the school or Isla Vista. The unit itself is very clean and nicely decorated! It is well stocked with everything you might need. We spent mornings and evenings sitting on the patio looking onto the beautiful mountains, or sat at the kitchen table and watched from above as the chickens ran around their lushly landscaped yard! As a fellow VRBO owner I appreciate how Kathy and Ron go out of their way to meet all your needs. I suggest booking early, their reputation is spreading and it's getting harder to secure a reservation!
This house was well maintained and easily accessible to the freeway. Late checkout was flexible and simple to arrange on late notice. The house was well decorated and well stocked with items you would need during your stay. The kitchen was large and fully equipped w coffee pot and all items needed for cooking. Great overall experience, would recommend.
This unit is very well maintained and from the moment you enter it is like your home away from home. The owners have made this a private unit on a family property with its own entrance etc. It is very comfortable with a really nice kitchen area & all the necessary utilities. Unit is in a great neighborhood and close to supermarket(s), shops & restaurants, you can walk to if you so choose. Only 15 minutes from downtown Santa Barbara. We have already recommended to family & friends who plan to be in the area in coming months. Excellent value for what the location & unit provides!!
My husband and I stayed at this property as we were passing through on our drive along the PCH. The property was exactly what we needed after a long day of driving. It is located outside of Santa Barbara, but that was ok with us. The price is excellent compared to what you would pay for a hotel in downtown SB and its located in a nice neighborhood and was very clean. What more can you ask for. We arrived in the evening and were greeted by the property owner who suggested a few places within walking distance to grab dinner, which worked out great. All and all, we would definitely recommend this property.
If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. The place, as well as owners Kathy and Ron, deserve 10 ! I needed a place at the last minute for a weekend move-in to UCSB, and although this property was already rented for the days before and immediately after, Kathy so generously agreed to squeezing me in. I had already heard about the property from a friend who stays here on their visits to the school, so I was happy to try it out. What a complete gem.
Photos don't do the 'apartment' justice. So clean, tasteful and modern. Decorations and appliances are high end and unique, absolute privacy, and perfect location, and unbeatable price . My best comments, though, are reserved for Kathy and her family. Totally unobtrusive, but so very helpful when asked. Friends and neighbors of this family are lucky indeed. Thanks for everything and see you next time !!
Very nice place, clean, and has everything you can think of for your use. Way better then staying at hotel and is even cheaper which is unbelievable since it's like a 1 bedroom apartment. Loved that we could make breakfast, coffee, lunch, and eat popcorn while watching a movie on a relaxing couch. Bed was so comfortable. My family had a wonderful stay and we will definitely stay here again when visiting Santa Barbara area. Thank you Kathy & Ron for renting out your beautiful place!
Beautiful quiet neighborhood with stores, shops and movies in walking distance. Near Goleta Beach and UCSB. Art Show every Sunday on beach boardwalk, segway tours, more beautiful beaches, stand-up paddle and kayak rentals at Goleta Beach (3 mi). Visit SB Zoo, Natural Museum of History, or the Sea Center on the pier with the kids. Wine tasting in Santa Ynez Valley 40 min drive away. Short drive (15 min) into mountains for hikes, beautiful ocean views, lake fishing. Day trips to the Channel Islands for caving, kayaking, hiking and whale-watching. So much to see and do!
