*****This house has ALWAYS been rented as a 6 bedroom, 4 full bath house until Oct 1, 2018. Santa Barbara county recently passed a new ordinance limiting us to rent a max of 3 bedrooms ONLY, max of 6 adults (extra kids are fine) for rentals 30 days or less. (Ordinance is mainly due to the movement against vacation rentals in the area.) We abide by that ordinance but want you to know that the house is much bigger and more spacious than 3 bedrooms as it has 6. We are not allowed to advertise or talk about the other 3 bedrooms if you are staying less than a month. If you would like to stay 30 days or more, you can have more than 6 adults (It sleeps 12) and all 6 bedrooms/4 full baths. We want to accurately disclose that this home is larger than a 3 bedroom home, for those seeking 31 days or more rentals. Manager resides on the far end of the property.
