5 star Santa Barbara experience - Charming 2/1 Spanish, 2 blks from The Wharf, Beach, Funk Zone & State St, modern, light, boutique-like flair. Views of Riviera from living room. Meticulous, tasteful/understated decor, luxurious bedding, fully stocked & great amenities! One of the best Airbnb’s you will experience. Please read details carefully.

The space
If you are as particular as I am about where you stay, maybe this is the place for you.

What makes it special are location, natural light, style, cleanliness and luxurious linens and amenities. I take great care to provide you with the cleanest, softest white linens so that you know you are no hidden stains. The house also provides a high end kitchen, comfortable beds, and every amenity you might need including a fully stocked kitchen, bathroom, beach chairs, towels, toys and even flip flops.

If you prefer the services and style of boutique hotels with unique, sophisticated decor over the standard options, this may be your choice. Style is like the Biltmore meets the Kimpton hotel group.

Inspired by some places I have visited (Amangiri, The Boathouse at Mankas), my goal was to offer a place that I would be happy to stay in...

A place that is drenched with natural light and good energy, a space that is sophisticated but simple, modern but warm, very clean and very comfortable, and most importantly... inspiring.

Built by the renowned Spanish Style architect Alex D'Alfonso, this home retains all of the charm that makes it quintessentially Santa Barbara, but was tastefully upgraded and remodeled with modern furnishings and amenities to make it bright, functional and comfortable.

The home is well appointed and includes a gourmet kitchen, heated tile bathroom floors, soft luxurious bedding and down comforters, new beds, Apple TV, Netflix, Wifi, and high-end appliances including washer and dryer. No need to bring hair dryer, iron, first aid, etc. All stocked. :-)

**Also if there are any sensitivities, please let me know in advance. I try to accommodate as much as possible. Although they enjoyed their stay and said they want to return, I was recently surprised by a guest complaining about scent even thought candles and scent was mild and minimal. I guess you can be perfect for everyone (but I try) :-)

I look forward to hosting you and hope to inspire you during your visit to Santa Barbara.

Bedroom arrangements:
1 King bed in front bedroom and
1 queen bed in back bedroom.

Also option for 3rd bedroom studio upstairs with own bath fir additional price.

During your stay

I enjoy meeting new people but want to respect your time. If you are up for some socializing or prefer alone time, either is fine with me.

I am always available by phone and text. I may be going in and out of the studio upstairs.

The studio has a separate entrance, but I will need to walk through the backyard and past the back bedroom french doors to access the studio. You can see the stairs to the studio from the back bedroom.

I am pretty flexible, so interaction may depend on what guests prefer. My goal is to give all guests as much privacy and space possible.
