About The Owner

My wife and I are travel junkies! We LOVE exploring new places and getting to know how the locals live everywhere we go. Because of this, our preference while traveling is to stay in Vacation Rentals and Bed and Breakfasts!

This background gives us a unique ability to create a warm yet functional place to stay during your visit. We created a place WE would like to stay in!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2006

Why The Owner chose Oak Park

We simply LOVE downtown Santa Barbara! We are regular walkers and enjoy having access to all that the downtown corridor has to offer.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment (or Casita) is designed by people who have traveled extensively and know what is appreciated while away from home and exploring new places.

As people who enjoy eating out, we give many tips on the local restaurants and wine tasting options.

We also give you the privacy you desire. If you want to interact, we are available. Otherwise we try our best to allow you to feel like you have the place all to yourself!


Guestbook comments from the owner

Casita Valerio is by far the best place I have stayed since visiting Santa Barbara. I lived in Santa Barbara for 35 years and know it well. The location is perfect to access all that Santa Barbara offers. It is clean, beautifully decorated and incredibly comfortable. I just loved coming "home" to my wonderful casa.

Comfortable, Clean, and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I needed a place to stay for an upcoming wedding in Santa Barbara and wanted to make the weekend complete by staying a total of 3 nights. My adult son came for part of the stay and there was plenty of space for all of us to be comfortable. Directions given by Brian were very complete and easy to follow. We had no problems at all finding where to go and getting inside. We were welcomed by a bottle of wine and chocolate next to a nice book sharing needed information and recommendations for shops and restaurants that we found quite helpful. The casita is clean, simple, and nicely organized. The neighborhood was very quiet, peaceful and great for walking or biking. We enjoyed sitting out in the patio for morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. Walking to anything needed on the upper end of state street was easy from this location. It was a bit too far for a stroll to the beach but is only a few minute drive or bike ride. Over all it was very convenient location. I would recommend this property. Thank you Brian and Kacy for the hospitality.

Our stay at this location was perfect. The location was central to everything and yet secluded and peaceful. Our stay was very comfortable.

Very cute and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Apartment is very comfortable and easy walk to upper State Street. Owners also provided a handbook of places to eat, which was very useful. Recommendations for Cajun Kitchen and The Lark we're great. Would definitely stay again.

Clean and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Santa Barbara for a wedding this past weekend and decided to stay at Casita Velario. It is a lovely little place, very clean and had everything we needed for wedding prep and resting up when not involved in our wedding duties. It was very close to the downtown Santa Barbara area which we actually walked from the first night. We would definitely recommend staying here!
