1 story house in the foothills in Santa Barbara, USA

UNABLE TO EXCHANGE IN 2020. 2021 possible.

Our house is small but very comfortable, with many south-facing windows and lovely garden and patio areas for outdoor living. There is also a large vegetable garden area and several fruit trees. Inside the house, the well-equipped kitchen is open to the living and dining areas. The master bedroom is quite large, with a king sized bed. The second bedroom we use as an office. There are two full bathrooms, each with a separate dressing area. We have a guest double bed (futon) in a detached studio next to the house, not appropriate for children. The house is on a private road in a beautiful little valley with six other houses in the Mission Canyon area of Santa Barbara--five minutes drive to downtown, ten minutes to beaches. There are hiking trails close by as well. A car is necessary, as the closest bus stop is a mile away. 

Open to short exchanges in San Francisco year-round, and to 7-14 day Hawaii exchanges at many times of year.
