My place is Next door to the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden and not far from downtown, the wharf and the beach. Hiking trails too. I love this place because of the scenic oaks, the quiet and the nature moments such as seeing a deer stroll past.. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers.
The house is 6200 sq ft compound (one other person lives here) with a two story garage and dance studio located on 5 acres with Oaks and chaparral bordering the botanical garden's 20+ acres.
There are several pics showing the place. My full time job is being staff to my two indoor cats. Very friendly. And demanding! The tales I could tell! But I digress.
The bathroom is shared by me and the girls, but for your visit, they'll be staying in my room. I don't want you to experience the little gifts Lucy leaves.
And, most of the time, I'll be using another bathroom also.
Zugang für Gäste
You'll have access to the common area including the kitchen and outdoor deck. If you want to practice dancing or yoga, the dance studio will also be available unless Sylvia or I need to give a private lesson. That doesn't happen often on weekends though. The "yard" is just open space with Oaks and a stream running through the property in the wetter years.

Mission Santa Barbara, known as the Queen of the Missions because of its beauty, is right on way to town. It's actually worth a quick stop, view the Mission and see what life was like long ago. And before you get to the Mission, the Museum of Natural History is located on a beautiful tree covered property.
- Two cats live in the house but are kept out your of room if you shut the door. Lucy has been known to "claim" her territory and it's not pretty. At night they are with me. And at sunrise Lucy will jump from the creaky headboard to the closet, from the closet to the creaking AND loud headboard and then to my exhausted body. Quite a wake up demand. Feed me now! Divas can be difficult.
Dogs are great. They give unconditional love to those who deserve it. Nothing is better than a dog as mans' best friend.
I've had dogs. Now I have cats. Two sisters. Never before I had young kittens. I've always had used cats. And almost all of them chose me.
Life with cats is easier when you truly believe, "Cat's don't have owners, THEY HAVE STAFF. DUH
