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!
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."
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!
No smoking. Pets are welcome but must be out with you during the day or in one of our enclosed areas outside. At night, they can sleep in your room if you adhere to the "absolutely no pets on beds or furniture" rule. We charge $15 a day to accommodate pets.
