About debbie & jim arnesen
Debbie first came to Santa Barbara in 1974 to attend UCSB. Jim came much earlier when his family owned an avocado ranch in Carpinteria in the 60's. We have a landscape and contracting business and have worked & volunteered for decades with many of our local nonprofits. We consider ourselves 'lucky' because we have been gainfully employed in SB since our early 20's, own our home and have raised our two sons here.

Why debbie & jim arnesen chose Laguna
We had been looking for 'just the right rental property' for several years. As soon as we saw the OAKtree Cottage on Laguna, we knew it was perfect - great location, plenty of charm and a 'project' to keep us busy now that we have an empty nest.
What makes this cottage unique
When you first approach OAKtree Cottage, you'll see the beautiful hundred-year old oak at the front of the property. A real show stopper! We love the fact that the cottage has also been around for 100+ years and is part of Santa Barbara history. And since we enjoy walking and biking, we were especially pleased that our guests can easily 'walk and bike' Santa Barbara. Walk score of ‘93’ and bike score of ‘97’! Best of all, OAKtree Cottage is a peaceful oasis in the heart of downtown.
