About Kathy

Owners are teachers and live on first floor of house. Apartment is not over our main house so there is no noise that disturbs us :) We are dedicated to making your visit comfortable; you can always contact us for help. Owners and renters do share entries to individual properties or any outdoor or indoor living spaces.

Kathy purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Kathy chose Goleta

We purchased this home and the second story was build intended for rental. Separate paver-stone private entrance from the street with your own front door.

What makes this apartment unique

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!

Clean and affordable!

  • 5 of 5
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.

Outstanding in every way

  • 5 of 5
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 !!

We loved this place, Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
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!

I have got to say that this is a hidden gem. More like an apartment, this rental was well stocked with everything you would need as a traveler: more than enough bath towels, cleaning supplies, condiments, paper towels, shampoo, and a whole host of other things you can't live without. This property is very close (within walking distance) from Starbucks, a large grocery store, a hardware store, and numerous Goleta restaurants. Also relatively close to 101 for easy freeway access, but not close enough to hear road noise.

My wife, 5 year old daughter, and I were visiting the SB area for a family function that happened to coincide with UCSB graduation weekend, so I booked this VRBO several months in advance. Handling the $ exchange was very easy, and the owners sent very clear, concise instructions on the rental terms, along with property details, and driving directions.

The unit itself is well maintained and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable, and there was tons of closet/dresser space, as well as a very large living room to stretch out in. The TV was great, and wifi signal was solid. Chickens live on the property, and that made for fun, too. Unforgettable details included many closet hangars, TV/wifi instructions next to the TV, 2 sets of keys, clearly labeled garbage/recycling cans (both inside as well as outside), extra pillows, blankets, and a vacuum.

Counter space in the bathroom was minimal (due to a pedestal sink) but a small, stacked shelving unit next to the sink remedied that. To be fair, this did not bother me, but my wife, who uses several curling irons, wished for counter space in the bathroom.

Our only concern? Life with a 5 year old can be disrupting at times, and this unit sits almost directly on top of a portion of the owner's home. I had concerns that too much stomping, loud voices, or general kid play would have bothered the owners below (as most parents of young children should be conscientious of), but I did not hear anything from the owners. They may have left for the weekend, though, since I didn't see them at all. Sorry if we made too much stomping noise!

The price is the best part about this place! Had I stayed in a local hotel (which I did consider), I would have paid over $1200 for the few days (keep in mind this was UCSB's grad weekend), whereas it wasn't even half of that at this rental, plus you get so much more than at a hotel.

Thanks so much for a great experience. We will certainly stay again.

Private and

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was clean, well lit, spacious and private. The entrance via the side gate is lined with a beautiful garden. The pantry and linen cabinet were well stocked. A great place to stay, even for an extended time. The apartment is also close to a shopping center for supplies and it is easily accessible from the freeway. You get a great view of the mountains from the patio. This would be my first choice when I return to the Santa Barbara area!
