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.

We had a lovely stay. The location is easy walking distance to the upper section of downtown. The owners were very easy to work with. The space is clean and inviting. Would stay again.

Cozy Retreat in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed a long weekend at Brian's VRBO and thoroughly enjoyed it. The apartment and its nice little patio are located a few blocks from all the action on State Street and are set back from the road and QUIET!!!. The location in a residential area was great. And it was so convenient for lovely walks in the beautiful, walkable small city of Santa Barbara. There is a great flat screen tv there now--not the little box that shows in the picture!!!

Quiet retreat in great location

  • 5 of 5

I spent 4 nights in the quiet guest apartment. It was a great and quiet getaway in a great location. It is blocks away from hopping on/off the freeway, and an $10 uber to downtown. It was clean, and cute, and the shower gets great hot water (my favorite.) I would definitely stay again.

We have been coming to SB very often to watch our son play Lax at UCSB. This location was a very comfortable stay. We enjoyed the hosts recommendations for restaurants in the neighborhood. Would choose this casita again

Sweet and lovely and terrific location!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 3 stayed here during the mudslide evacuations. This was a wonderful and cozy home for us for 10 days. It nurtured us and helped us rest. The apartment is charming and was perfect for us. The owners of the property are so nice and were such a comfort to us as well. Stay here!

Kind Host

Our stay did not work out because of a mudslide in the area blocking the road. The host quickly reimbursed our money. Great communication skills!
