MORE ABOUT YOUR HOST:
I was born and raised in SB, and have called Santa Barbara home for most of my life (55+ years). I have lived on the Mesa for the past ten years and love all the things it has to offer. I've been lucky enough to do a lot of traveling in the past, and know how nice it is to stay somewhere that feels like a home away from home. I think you will find that this rental is just that kind of a place. When I host guests I will always be based in the Santa Barbara area should anything require attention, while affording you all the privacy you desire.

I was born and raised in SB, and have called Santa Barbara home for most of my life (50+ years). I have lived on 'The Mesa' for the past eight years and love all it has to offer. I've been lucky enough to do a lot of traveling in the past, and know how nice it is to stay somewhere that feels like a home away from home.

In my free time when I am not gardening or out enjoying the nearby beaches and parks with friends and dogs, I'm usually busy training and competing in the crazy fun sport of dog agility.
