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!

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.

  • 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!

An inviting and lovely home

  • 5 of 5
Thank you to Kathy & Ron for being so accommodating of our last minute booking. The apartment was clean and thoughtfully appointed with everything that our family of four needed for an enjoyable stay - we were even able to borrow some beach toys for our 2 kids and feed the chickens!! Great location close to stores and other amenities; loved the proximity to Goleta beach as well as other beautiful coastlines closer to Santa Barbara. The hosts are friendly, low-key and easily reachable should you have questions about the area - they certainly made our stay very relaxed. The apartment was a great base from which to explore the Santa Barbara area. Thanks again!

Great place to stay

My husband and I stayed here over Christmas for 8 days to visit our family and grandchildren. It is convenient to the airport, restaurants and services yet quiet and comfortable. Hopefully we can stay again in the future. It is clean and well appointed.
