Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I was born and raised in Germany and came to Santa Barbara in 1984. It has been my home ever since, I can't imagine a more beautiful place to live! I have formal hotel and restaurant training and own and operate the Meadowlark inn in Solvang, in the Santa Barbara wine country. My guests comfort and safety are my highest priority. I love the hotel and restaurant business and I am well know in Santa Barbara. I also drive guests wine tasting in the Santa Ynez Valley.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
I love my Santa Barbara house. I can walk to the Santa Barbara Mission and the gorgeous rose garden in 15 minutes, to the Arlington and Granada Theaters with the fabulous surrounding restaurants in 20 minutes. It feels like I am a tourist in my own fabulous hometown!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Although it is an older home, I love its charm. It is so comfortable and spacious and in a great neighborhood, so close to everything. This home is pet and smoke free and is equipped with security cameras at the front and back door. This is definitely NOT a party house!
