This is a single family residence on one acre that has a full time Homeshare tenant in a separate but completely private section of the home with its own parking and entrance. The Homeshare tenant and his family have been personal friends of the owner for nine years and watch over the house when the owners are out of town. The Board of Supervisors of the County of Santa Barbara have recently passed an ordinance that eliminates short term vacation renting of single family residences in the unincorporated section of the County unless they have a long term Homeshare tenant or owner living on the property. This ordinance will take effect in the latter part of 2018.
