About Debbie

Welcome to Santa Barbara 'The American Riviera'. My husband and I met in Santa Barbara, married and raised our family here. We live in the main house, the guest apartment is above our garage. We are pretty quite except for the occasional sports event or when the kids are over visiting. We are social and enjoy the outdoor activities that come with living in Santa Barbara.

Debbie purchased this house in 1998

Why Debbie chose Foothill

This house was a rental, and a mess, but we loved the locations and the 'in your face' mountain views along with the peeks of the ocean. We knew it had the potential of making this a really special property for our family. It has not disappointed. The minute you walk through the door you feel at home, you can't believe the views and just how welcoming the entire property makes you feel.

What makes this house unique

Private, Quite, Hiking trails right out your door, Ocean views from your bed, Morning coffee on your mountain view balcony, wood burning fireplace in living room, WFI and Large HD TV, 2 miles to State Street, 10 minutes to beach -Zoo-Funk Zone-Harbor-Shopping, no problems with parking, designated on-site parking spot.

We enjoyed our stay here immensely. The owners were so kind and helpful. They even gave us eggs from their chickens and ducks. Would stay again if we were in town.

beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice apartment over the garage. Much bigger than expected. Well-equipped and very comfortable.

Amazing mountain views. We were 3 women sharing the space for the night and we were pleasantly

surprised by how beautiful the space was. We'd stay here again!

Home away from home in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

Great little place that is decorated well, clean and conveniently located. I would recommend this place and I would stay there again! Rather than being repetitive, the reviews and descriptions by others are accurate, except the grocery store is Gelson's that is close by. We had a great breakfast at Garrett's and an excellent dinner at Toma (make reservations). Thanks for sharing your beautiful apartment!

Georgetown, TX

outstanding place in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

This upstairs unit is over the owners home and garage. That "description" is quite misleading because it is much much nicer than any other garage apartment we had ever seen. It is up against the hills above Santa Barbara, with incredible views of the hills. Lots of light. Quiet. The apartment is furnished with high quality furniture--very attractive and comfortable. There is a small balcony off the kitchen for breakfast or wine. Larger places to sit at ground level. Kitchen well stocked. Fresh eggs were a nice surprise. It is fairly close to an excellent grocery store (Gilsons right on State street on your way up to the apartment) and not far from the freeway for trips to downtown or wine country or the beaches. There are about 20 fairly steep steps up to the unit but most people should not find that a problem (we are in our early 70s and were fine).

Home from home very convenient for Santa Barbara!

  • 5 of 5

A totally private apartment with its own separate access adjoining the owner's home, this suited our needs perfectly for a 2 night stop-over in Santa Barbara. Well-equipped and comfortable. Great location with wonderful views on the outskirts of Santa Barbara but only a few minutes drive into Downtown. The owners Debbie and Tim were very friendly and gave us some fresh eggs from their own chickens. We really liked Santa Barbara and would have liked to have stayed longer. Highly recommended.
