The space

Our home is a charming Victorian 2 bedroom / 3 bath house in downtown Santa Barbara. This recently remodeled home has one large bedroom upstairs with nice views and a balcony, a bathroom and an open office area. The upstairs bedroom has a queen bed on one side and a double/full on the other. The room has 2 doors and a heavy curtain divider that can be drawn to effectively make 2 bedrooms, each with its own entrance. A twin foam mattress, queen air bed and fold-up cot are also available to accommodate more guests. Great for families and larger groups.
Downstairs is an open layout living/dining/kitchen with bath, the master bedroom with full Jacuzzi tub bath and the parlor / front room with a queen-sized pull-out sofa bed. The parlor can be closed off from the rest of the downstairs living area to serve as an additional bedroom, in which case other guests are welcome to come and go through the backyard and kitchen instead of using the front door. The living room sofa, though not a sleeper, is also quite comfortable for one person to sleep on. Hundred year old hardwood floors, beamed ceilings and bay windows, remodeled kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Fully furnished, wireless internet, cable TV and utilities included. Use of boogie and surfboards also included. We share the lovely enclosed backyard with pond, lawn, flagstone patio and barbecue. The patio area just outside the kitchen and our mosaic corner bench under the avocado tree are primarily for your use, while the lower patio area around the corner under the grapevine arbor is primarily for our use or other guests who may be staying in our house. Pets could be OK -- please ask. Pet fee would be $25/night/pet.

Leo's place was awesome. It has everything you need to have a chilled few days in SB , including bikes , surf and paddleboards. The outdoor area is especially pleasant , and was an easy way to meet people staying in the neighbouring house.
