Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Harry and Judi's was perfect! They were very welcoming once we got there and the guest house had everything we needed: towels, breakfast, kitchen wear, etc. This was my first time staying at an Airbnb, but the experience I had makes me wonder why I hadn't done this before. Harry and Judi are the perfect hosts and I hope to go back and stay with them really soon!

I stayed for about 1 week. It had everything I needed. I loved having my coffee on the deck in the morning. It was peaceful at night too.

Harry and Judi were great hosts. I can't wait to go back.

Spacious apartment with lovely view

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 nights here visiting the beautiful Santa Barbara. The apartment is very bright and spacious with plenty of natural light. Great for a couple or a young family. We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony in the late afternoon/evening. Harry and Judy greeted us warmly and very helpful. Recommend this place and would stay again.
