A Gem in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Anna has a beautiful separate and completely private wing of her home that is furnished nicely and equipped with anything you could possible need. The view from their lovely backyard ( a huge garden with paths and fruit trees) is spectacular. You can see the sunrise and sunset and have a view of the Channel Islands. The pool is heated so we were swimming in January. We rented bikes and rode on the coast, hiked in Rattlesnake Canyon, and enjoyed the views from the cliffs of the Douglas Family Preserve. We had many meals at restaurants with ocean views and had a great time enjoying the shops and restaurants on State Street. This was at least our fourth trip to Santa Barbara and we still found plenty to do. It is a great place to escape the (Kansas for us) winter. Anna and Barry are great hosts and there are lots of comfortable spots to just sit and relax inside and out.

Best Santa Barbara trip!

  • 5 of 5

We come to Santa Barbara for a weekend every winter and this was our best trip yet! Anne was a very kind and helpful host, specially picking us out snacks and pool toys for our kids. The pool, garden, and outdoor patio is amazing with a gorgeous view of the ocean and Santa Barbara. Anne kept the pool very warm for us so we were able to swim comfortably despite it being a little cool outside. The property felt very private and quiet, and the two rooms worked out great for us and our two kids. The beds were very comfortable. This was a really perfect stay for us as we were able to explore Santa Barbara in the morning and relax by the pool in the afternoon. Not to mention we got stunning sunsets in the evening!

Happy in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a wonderful place to stay while visiting Santa Barbara. Anne and Barry do a great job; the unit is clean and well kept with comfortable beds and the million dollar view you see in the pictures. The little pool is also a plus.

They even provide an assortment of food and snacks so you don't have to worry about munchies-nice touch. Other items I appreciated included some good books and some fun party games I would have played if time had allowed.

Minor nitpicks; no in-unit washer/dryer or sofa/coffee table type living space (they opt for a second bed instead). Regardless, gracious hosts and a good location that worked great for us; I recommend highly!

Best Kept Secret in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

Anne and Barry have one of the best views and properties in Santa Barbara. They are fantastic hosts with wonderful recommendations for the area. Their home is centrally located between great hiking and super easy access ($7 uber) to downtown. I really cannot provide a higher recommendation. The best AirBnB/VRBO stay I've ever had.

Located on a hilltop with an incredible view and setting.

  • 5 of 5

Anne and Barry's home is set in the most beautiful location. Wake up to sunrise across Santa Barbara by the pool or take a really easy 5/10 min drive into the centre of Santa Barbara.

Anne and Barry are so welcoming with some great top tips on what to do during your stay. We arrived later than expected due to some detours along the way and Anne had set out some water, bread, snacks and freshly made mini muffins which were incredible! It was also such a treat to arrive somewhere which had a kettle and allowed us to make a cup of tea!

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here, we will definitely be back again.

About anne h. rojas

As long time Santa Barbara residents we welcome you to our home. We are educated and well traveled and appreciate visitors from all lifestyles, cultures and countries, but will be respectful of your privacy and space during your stay should you want no interaction....

We are owner managed and do all of our own bookings.

We open our home because we enjoy doing so--not as a business. We have hosted wonderful guests from all parts of the world and stay in contact with many of them. Several have returned for visits. We have visited previous guests in Uruguay and Chile and Britain is now on our list!

anne h. rojas purchased this house in 1990

Why anne h. rojas chose Eastside

Guests have commented that the photos do not do the property justice!

So no surprises when you stay with us......

Where else can you have it all? Relax by the pool, enjoy coffee/wine on the veranda while watching the sunrise/ sunset over the City and ocean. Quiet, but still close to downtown attractions Park in our large circular driveway, not on street. No "car shuffling."

Perfect place to de-stress! Many of our visitors just relax here and enjoy our quiet property and warm swimming pool, heated all summer and in winter by request.

Run of fenced yard for pet.

What makes this house unique


Refrigerator stocked with snacks, wine and soft drinks and water.

Owners can pick you up at Santa Barbara train station or airport as part of your stay. A place here for your rental car. Many guests use Uber.

We know all the 'best places' to recommend should you need suggestions.

From Four Seasons to neighborhood ethnic restaurants--we know all of them!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our lovely South American guests left me this note upon departure.

"Dear Anne and Barry,

Thank you very much for your kindness and friendship.

We spent very nice days with you.


Hugo and Andrea

P.S. We will never forget you guys!!!"
