About Erik Funke and Guusje Sellier
I'm a native Santa Barbarian who grew up in the triplex next door. This building was built in '96, the year our daughter was born. We raised her next door for the first five years of her life. The Studio had been leased out yearly and now we've made it into a vacation rental. We enjoy using it ourselves occasionally, when we want to escape from the Portland winters or play at the beach in the summers. We're looking forward to sharing our 2nd home with you.
Erik Funke and Guusje Sellier purchased this Studio in 1996

Great place to stay
Good location I walked to most places. Short drive to some good beaches.
Great place with great proximity to restaurants, bars, the water etc. Will definitely keep the information and rent again the next time we’re in Santa Barbara! Thank you to the owners.
Very convenient location, light and spacious with awesome deck
This is a pretty spacious studio with separate full kitchen, all of which is very much enhanced by the deck that runs the length of 2 sides of the studio, furnished with comfy chairs, adirondacks, loveseat, lounge, and dining table. With a door to the deck on each side, it's like having exterior living/dining rooms attached. We really used and enjoyed that space a lot. Also loved the full kitchen, which was pretty well stocked. And the boogie board!! The interior is very nice, with lots of thoughtful touches, the only drawback for us was that because of the heat we had to leave the windows open, which made it pretty loud due to the proximity to the train station. Other than the train, the location can't be beat - it's 2 blocks to the beach and very bikeable to everywhere. Owners were very nice and responsive. Overall we had a really great time here and would rent here again.
Lovely studio right in the middle of everything!
We loved our stay in this studio! It really is right in the middle of everything in Santa Barbara, so it is incredibly walkable. The beach is close by. Communication with the hosts was fantastic. We were so very happy to spend time in this place!
Incredibly professional and so well organized. Loved the visit!
Had a lovely time. All was so well organized with the studio. And it’s in an absolutely prime location.
Great access to everything
The unit was walkable to so many restaurants and the beach. Lots of tasting rooms close by. The wrap around upper porch was so comfortable. We stayed with our 1 year old for a wedding and had plenty of room. The owners instructions were so helpful.
