Our ranch-style home is situated on a quiet cul de sac in a family neighborhood. Located conveniently across the freeway from Bacara Resort, Camino Real shopping center and UCSB.

Your sunny private bedroom has a comfortable queen-sized bed, 2 side tables, a bench, and a closet. Your bathroom with tub is semi-private & clean.

We have two elementary-aged children who are fun & respectful. We have a dog, a cat, a fish and 2 chickens.

The space

Your room will be sunny for most of the day with warm, buttercream-colored walls, a bright window with a street view of our cheerful cul-de-sac. The Queen-sized bed is new and comfortable for 1-2 guests. A full-sized closet with mirrored doors has hangers & plenty of space for your suitcase. Floors have new carpet for maximum comfort.

The entire house is a 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom ranch-style home that we have with our 2 kiddos (5.5 yrs & 8 yrs) and I work from home. We have a dog, a fish, three chickens (they stay in the side yard) and a cat. The cat WILL NOT be in your room at any time (unless you leave the door open).

Your bathroom is private! We provide cozy towels, shampoos/conditioners samples, a hair dryer, and a room fan.

Guest access

Guests will enter through the front door via lockbox. Their private room is down the hallway, second door on the left. The room has a lock that guests have a key to for maximum privacy.

Kitchen use

You are booking a room in a house, not the entire house. Kitchen use can be arranged for longer stays. Just inquire! If you bring home food after your dinner at a restaurant, you can just make a little room in the fridge in the main kitchen. No problem.

Interaction with guests

If I can not meet and greet you then room keys will be placed in lock box and code will be messaged to guests a day or two before arrival, before check in time (3pm)- we have found this easiest for our guests to be independent and able to arrive without having to coordinate a specific time with the host.

We work and play at home. We work to make your stay pleasant and try to accommodate bathroom and shower needs- Hasn't been an issue thus far.

Kitchen use for longer term stays only- please inquire at time of booking.

You are booking a room in a house not the entire house ;)

We'd be happy to give recommendations for all there is to see and do around Goleta & Santa Barbara! We are home sometimes during the day but usually home in the evenings getting our kiddos ready for bed, doing homework, etc.

Other things to note

We had a lovely stay at Sophie's place. We met the whole family on arrival and everyone was very friendly. The room is very clean and the bed is really comfortable. Checking in and out was super easy and both Sophie and Guil always responded immediately via AirBnB. They also had great ideas about what to do and see in and around Santa Barbara. Goleta is a quiet and safe area about 10-15mins drive away from Santa Barbara City Center. We would stay here again!

This is a lovely place to stay. It's not far from restaurants and bars in the area but it's also in a quiet suburb surroundings so you get the best of both worlds. The hosts were both lovely and accommodating. I really recommend a stay here for its charm, location and it's hosts!

The room was very comfortable and clean. Robes and fresh towels were provided which was nice. Sophie is a good host and her children are very friendly and lively which we loved. It's close to a few places to grab food and isn't too far from the beach.

Sophie's place was good. It was all as represented, no surprises. An economical way to spend time in a very expensive area. Nice family, friendly and accommodating.

Sophie's place was quite pleasant and a perfect stay for our trip! It was exactly as advertised, nice, clean, and quiet. The bedroom was very comfortable, the bathroom was easily accessible, and check-in/check-out was effortless. Sophie and Gil were super helpful and really quick to respond. Everything was clearly communicated and provided.
