About The Owner

My wife and I are travel junkies! We LOVE exploring new places and getting to know how the locals live everywhere we go. Because of this, our preference while traveling is to stay in Vacation Rentals and Bed and Breakfasts!

This background gives us a unique ability to create a warm yet functional place to stay during your visit. We created a place WE would like to stay in!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2006

Why The Owner chose Santa Barbara

We simply LOVE downtown Santa Barbara! We are regular walkers and enjoy having access to all that the downtown corridor has to offer.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment (or Casita) is designed by people who have traveled extensively and know what is appreciated while away from home and exploring new places.

As people who enjoy eating out, we give many tips on the local restaurants and wine tasting options.

We also give you the privacy you desire. If you want to interact, we are available. Otherwise we try our best to allow you to feel like you have the place all to yourself!

Cheers!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Casita Valerio is by far the best place I have stayed since visiting Santa Barbara. I lived in Santa Barbara for 35 years and know it well. The location is perfect to access all that Santa Barbara offers. It is clean, beautifully decorated and incredibly comfortable. I just loved coming "home" to my wonderful casa.

Very well remodeled! It's quiet, in a good neighborhood and the mattress is excellent too. The owners were also extremely accommodating in an unexpected personal issue we had. Would highly recommend this place!

Great experience

Great location! My husband and I loved staying here. It was clean and very comfortable. There was a bottle of wine left for us, and some chocolate. It had everything we needed!

this property was perfectly located, wonderfully private, and a true delight! easy and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

it was so easy for us to feel "at home" from the moment we walked into the door - actually, from the moment we parked in the driveway! it didn't take long to begin muttering "wow, i could really live here, couldn't you?" to one another! what a lovely neighborhood, and perfect location.....

our hosts provided a wonderful and thoughtfully assembled notebook with clear instructions, suggestions, and recommendations, including excellent and easy to follow directions for both walking and driving....

the space is exactly as depicted on the website (better!), well appointed, roomy and clean; the seating area in the back is intimate and charming....we enjoyed visits from my son and fiance several times during our stay.....

and the mattress was great!

really happy that we visited - highly recommend this precious space!

Our stay was excellent and I highly recommend Brian's home!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was incredibly responsive and helpful from the get go.

We needed a place to stay for 2 weeks while my brother was at a cancer clinic 4 blocks from this home. The owners were so helpful, the apartment was clean, it was better than described, and it was everything we needed to walk to the clinic and come back to be able to relax.

Thanks so much for making this so easy and what we were looking for Brian!

Convenient and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for 6 days while visiting our daughter in Santa Barbara. It was perfect. Comfortable bed, nice to have a separate living room and the kitchen had everything we needed. The hosts even left us a bottle of wine and chocolate. The location was also wonderfully convenient. My husband walked to Stearn's Wharf a few days and we had easy access to both State Street and the highway. Having an off street parking space was a bonus. I would highly recommend this for a stay in Santa Barbara at a reasonable price!

Nice, clean property close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Santa Barbara, in part because we had an excellent place to stay! This downstairs casita was very clean and welcoming. Even though the casita is attached to the main house, we had a lot of privacy. Our host was wonderful and even provided wine and chocolate upon our arrival. The location was great -- just a short walk from everything and a 5 minute drive to the beach. Overall, I would recommend this rental highly, and stay here again next time we visit SB.
