Our house is in a residential neighborhood with sidewalks and parks. It's conveniently located near Haskell's Beach (2 miles away), Devereux Beach, Goleta Beach, a large shopping center with Costco, Albertson's, theaters, restaurants, and UCSB. Our house is walking distance to 3 parks and a disc golf course. It's a short drive from downtown Santa Barbara (15-20 minutes).
This is a 1600 ft floor plan home plus a garage, located on a cul de sac. We have 2 children, so it is kid friendly. 2 bedrooms have queen size beds, one has 2 twin beds and the fourth is empty (our kids use it as a play room). We can provide a queen sized air mattress and also have a porta crib. We have a living room and family room (which we use as an additional kid area, also has a piano and fireplace), dining area and kitchen. Our backyard consists of a large grass area, redwood pergola and patio with large table, garden beds, trampoline, and play area.
In the connected garage you'll find our washer/dryer which is available for stays 5 nights and longer. The house comes with internet/apple tv, BBQ, 12 foot climbing wall and trampoline (to use at your own risk). We have 7 citrus and 6 Stone Fruit trees that, if with ripe fruit, you may pick. Of course, the kitchen will be stocked with all the necessary pots/pans, and cutlery to make any meal.

Our family loves to travel. We escape to the great outdoors whenever possible. Our passions lie in hiking, surfing, climbing, flying (paragliding), camping and playing! We adore our children and hope to instill in them our love of nature and the world. Currently, we've lived in our house for 4 years and are slowly making it our own, one project at a time. It's still a work in process, but we know you'll enjoy your time here!

Great Family Place
Wonderful house! Very comfortable for staying with kids. Highly recommend the location and great management with attention to details.
Terrific stay at a kid friendly home in Goleta
We (5 adults, 2 kids) had a wonderful stay in Goleta. We were in town for a wedding at the nearby Bacara but stayed here for more space, more kid-friendly options and a much better all-in price. The property was in great shape, with both our small children (girls ages 3.5 and 1) enjoying the toys and books on hand, the backyard, and the outdoor activities. We were welcomed with a nice care package and the owners were highly responsive with any questions we had, as well as in advance with check-in information. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this rental.
This was our second summer here and is becoming our home away from home! It's always the highlight of our year spending July in Goleta. The Barkers are very hospitable and easy to work with. Being their personal home, they truly open it up to their guests and have access to whatever you could possibly need. You get so much more here vs. a condo. Our favorite being a backyard and patio for the kids to play while we enjoy coffee on the patio each morning before hitting the beach. We look forward to returning! Thanks again, Barker's!
Very kid friendly and comfortable.
Many places to explore in the area. Fun back yard. Adult and kid friendly home!
Convenient and spacious
Good solid spot.
Since we had the home for 3 nights we were not allowed to use the laundry facilities. Either I didn't read the fine print well enough or we weren't informed in time of this minor concern. But it did not detract from the trip.
Thank you Gerald, I have adjusted our description to make this concern clear for future guests. Typically we do not offer the garage, which houses our washer/dryer for 3 night stays. It is a very time consuming process to secure our belongings and prepare the garage for renters. That said, we always do our best to accommodate special requests and are open to considerations. Thanks.
Comfortable family home. Great for kids. Close to amenities.
We enjoyed our stay.
We are a 5 minute drive to UCSB and Isla Vista
