Our home is a charming Victorian 3 bedroom / 3 bath house in downtown Santa Barbara. This recently remodeled home has one large double bedroom upstairs with a heavy curtain divider, nice views and a balcony, a bathroom and an open office area. When the curtain is closed it's two separate bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other a twin, each with its own door. Great for families. A twin foam mattress, queen air bed and fold-up cot are also available for placement on the floor to accommodate more than 7 guests.
Downstairs is an open layout living/dining/kitchen with bath, the master bedroom with full Jacuzzi tub bath and the parlor / front room with a queen-sized pull-out sofa bed which can be closed off from the rest of the downstairs to serve as a 3rd (or 4th) bedroom. Hundred year old hardwood floors, beamed ceilings and bay windows, remodeled kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Fully furnished, wireless internet, cable TV and utilities included. Use of bikes and surfboards also included. We share the lovely enclosed backyard with pond, patio, barbecue, grapevine arbor for shade and corner bench under the avocado tree. Pets could be OK -- need to discuss and make a special offer to include $25/night pet fee.
Guests have access to bikes, surfboards, boogie boards, backyard and barbecue.
We love to interact with our guests, as much or as little as they prefer.
If you run out of eggs or need more cream for your coffee the neighborhood market is just across the street. There are two beautiful parks, one with the fantastic "Kid's World" playground, within 5 blocks.
It’s a 5 minute walk to the Arlington Theater and the downtown State St. shops and restaurants (Sushi, Greek, italian, California Nouveau cuisine), a 15 minute ride to the Old Mission, beach, harbor or pier by bike or to UCSB by express bus. Bus stops just around the corner. Off-street parking is available for 1 car. The driveway is shared with the renters in the other house on our property. Please park far enough forward along the left side so that there's room for another car to park on the right. For short periods (loading and unloading) you can use the whole driveway (space for 3 cars). Parking is allowed on the street right in from of the house and there's usually no problem finding a spot.
Recycling - we do have a separate container for these items. It's a white woven basket next to the back door.
Please, no smoking anywhere on the premises.
We're located in a quiet residential neighborhood, so note that this is not the place for wild parties -- no excessive alcohol consumption or dance volume music after 11 pm, please.
We would appreciate your taking off your shoes in the house to preserve the floor -- it scratches easily, especially from beach sand.
The master bath is primarily for bathing and its wooden floor is not waterproof! If you use the hand shower please be careful and make sure to dry the floor. For showering please use the other bathrooms.
Leo's house is well decorated with his own collection of furnitures, lots of colors in living room, kitchen, garden, 2 bed rooms are good enough to for 4 or 6 people. Leo is a good host, we met at ralphs after he suggested the super market for shopping food and (website hidden) is so nice city, unlike other U.S. City, here you can feel more culture atmosphere, many beaches to choose, loving it!
Nice place, suitable for families together. I am surprised Leo just unlock the door for me. After he explain, then we know this is a 100% safe place, and no any mosquitoes. we will back again and introduce to othet Chinese friend. Thanks a lot for LEO's help.
The house was beautiful, clean, spacious, comfy, and in a great location! It was absolutely perfect for my family's stay (there was six of us). It was so nice to relax in the backyard and in the kitchen with the doors open. I highly recommend this place! Thanks for a great stay, Leo!
Leo's place is really comfy. Everything is clean and tidy when we get there. Leo greeted us at the front door with detailed tour in the place. The yard is lovely, avocado trees and grape plants. The restrooms are all remodeled. It's great for family gathering. I will definitely recommend this place.
Very nice house. As advertised. Clean. Good location. Great host. Especially loved the lovely back yard with the seats, trees, and lights. Made for a perfect evening of sipping a drink and relaxing.
Leo was very friendly and took the time to make sure we had everything we needed. The house was beautiful inside and out- breakfast out in the backyard and bikes available to ride down to the Funk Zone just made our Santa Barbara trip ideal. Little deli/store on the corner and proximity to state street was very convenient too. Would highly recommend staying here!

Über den Gastgeber, Leo
A native of Santa Barbara, after getting a degree from UCSB in ECE, I worked as an engineer in the Silicon Valley for a number of years before moving to Germany, where I lived for 8 years before returning to Santa Barbara. I met my wife, Daniela, in Germany and our daughter was born there. I currently teach ESL at Santa Barbara City College and my wife teaches German at Westmont College. Our daughter is now starting high school and we also have a son going into 5th grade. We love to travel to experience other cultures and the wonders of nature. Some of our most memorable recent trips were 3 weeks backpacking through the Yucatan Peninsula and another 4 weeks taking our VW camper up to Yellowstone and back.
