Peaceful cottage with lovely view of the ocean framed by one of the only groups of cypress trees in town. We have eliminated breakfast, although there is a vegan, gluten-free breakfast that can be ordered (see photo) with advanced notice. Shared bathroom. 10% local tax based on room charge must be paid at my home upon arrival. While here, please consider me before you call for an Uber ride. I would love the opportunity to make the extra money!

The space

Shelby Street is quiet and serene, with friendly neighbors. The accommodations are clean and uncluttered. An extra person in your room can sometimes be accommodated but there is a $40 additional charge. Please note that our county charges us a 12% lodging tax as well as $2 per room per night. We pay the $2 and only collect from you 10% upon arrival. While we have recently eliminated breakfast as part of the room rate, a gluten-free, plant-based breakfast can be ordered separately with enough advanced notice, and if I am available. Please note that we have two other rooms available in this home. Look under "Summerland Beach Serenity" and "Simply a Place to Crash."

Guest access

Since we keep a gluten-free kitchen, we do not offer guests cooking facilities unless previously arranged. However we do offer meals for a charge, with enough advanced notice, completely gluten-free and plant-based. Feel free to bring in food that is already prepared and enjoy it al fresco on one of our patios or in the dining area. There is only one bathroom, and it is shared. I am excited to show our guests how we incorporated our love for sea glass into the shower! Available for rent are two paddle boards and a one-person kayak, each for $20.00 for the day. A few beach chairs as well as two boogey boards are free to use.

Interaction with guests

As a chef and former owner of Santa Barbara's first (only) gluten-free, vegan restaurant, I can often be found in the kitchen.

Other things to note

We recently purchased a Santa Barbara Axxess card and make it available to the guests with tons of great discounts for SB eateries. Celebrating a special occasion? We offer decorated gluten-free, vegan cakes. Our decorator, Sybille, has made a name for herself in the area, and all of her cakes are works of art. She also did the sea glass mosaics in the shower!

House and a room was clean, uncluttered. Comfortable bed. Nice garden. two lovely dogs. You have to share shower room with other people. There is place for parking a car. Noise from the highway (for sensitive people). You have to have a car to get to the main shops and cafes. Beach could be sometimes polluted with oil, but that could happen in all santa barbara and surrounding areas.

We stayed in Diana's home for one night but her warmth and personality made it feel like we have known her for a while. Beautiful location and a clean and spacious main bedroom. Worth the visit. Steve

Diana's private room was comfortable and as advertised. It is a room with use of bathroom and outside porch/deck. Room was cute, clean and cozy. For a private room, it was great. There is a great coffee shop nearby.

Great stay at Diana's place, very clean and clear rules set up. The bed in the upstairs room is very firm, would have been nice to know ahead of time but that was a small thing compared to the view and great space she has!
