About anne h. rojas

As long time Santa Barbara residents we welcome you to our home. We are educated and well traveled and appreciate visitors from all lifestyles, cultures and countries, but will be respectful of your privacy and space during your stay should you want no interaction....

We are owner managed and do all of our own bookings.

We open our home because we enjoy doing so--not just as a business. We have hosted wonderful guests from all parts of the US and world and stay in contact with many of them. Several have returned for visits. We have visited previous guests in Uruguay and Chile , Amsterdam and Germany.

anne h. rojas purchased this house in 1990

Why anne h. rojas chose Eastside

Guests have commented that the photos do not do the property justice!

So no surprises when you stay with us......Kids welcome and plenty of outdoor space on property for them to "explore." Feed our spectacular caged iguanas, Iggy, Yoshi and Big Orange.

Where else can you have it all? Relax by the heated pool, enjoy coffee/wine on the veranda while watching the sunrise/ sunset over the City and ocean. Quiet, but still close to downtown attractions Park in our secure large circular driveway, not on street. No "car shuffling."

Perfect place to de-stress! Many of our visitors just relax here and enjoy our quiet property and warm swimming pool, heated all summer and in winter by request at no extra charge.

Run of fenced yard for 1 well behaved pet.

Join us for a Thai or Mexican dinner out , or a beach walk........

What makes this house unique


Refrigerator stocked with snacks, wine and soft drinks and water.

We know all the 'best places' to recommend should you need suggestions.

From Four Seasons to neighborhood ethnic restaurants--we know all of them!

Most Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I have never been to Santa Barbara and we absolutely loved our stay. The guest house has everything you could want and more. The pool is fantastic, the gardens are beautiful, and the view was breathtaking. The beds were very comfortable and the suite was so clean and cheerful. Anne is a fabulous and gracious host.

The past reviews of this rental are very accurate. We found it to be a spacious, comfortable and lovely apartment with its own separate entrance. It’s very well stocked with everything a person could ask for; breakfast items in fridge, snacks, drinks, wine in the kitchen; toiletries and plenty of towels also provided. We enjoyed combining walking and using Lyft to get around and had a great time doing a wine country bike tour, trip to Channel Islands, botanical gardens and Santa Barbara mission. Best of all, the hosts, Anne and Barry are gracious, thoughtful and go out of their way to make their guests comfortable. We plan to return in the future and highly recommend this home!

This place was nice and quiet with a beautiful view! Our hosts were most gracious, attending to any request or questions we had. We had a wonderful time and it really doesn't get much better than this! Plenty to do with a 5 minute drive to all of the action from shopping, wine tasting, eating, to all kinds of beach activities. So fun! We traveled the coast and this place was our favorite!

Lovely 3-day getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I came to bring my son for a UCSB tour and to visit our nephew who is a student there. This was a gem of a find. It's tucked away in the hills, has amazing views, and our hosts Anne and Barry could not be more accommodating. Our secondary hosts were Winston and Fritzee the dogs, who were just as lovable and friendly as could be. There are also three iguanas (in their own caged environment) that were just cool. We had access to the pool complete with towels and toys which the kids liked. We were provided muffins and snacks and the fridge was well stocked for us with milk, orange juice, wine beer, soda, and water. We definitely recommend and hope to be back again!
