I will be moving to UCSB next year and my partner, Neil, would like to have a roommate to help out with the rent. Our little apartment is located in Hillcrest/Mission Hills, which is within walking distance of great bars, restaurants, and shops.
There are many public transportation options within our area (en route to SDSU):
• The 11 is within 4 blocks of the apartment and goes directly to SDSU (about a 40 min trip)
• The 120 is within 4 blocks of the apartment goes to the Fashion Valley Green Line Trolley stop to SDSU (about a 40 min trip)
• The 10 is in front of our apartment and goes to the Old Town Green Line Trolley stop to SDSU (about a 30 min trip)
• If you enjoy invigorating long walks, you can walk 2 miles downhill to the Fashion Valley trolley (about a 40 min trip)
Traffic is never particularly bad heading towards SDSU in the mornings from the apartment in case you want to forgo public transit.
We have one room currently available with a huge closet as well as more closet space in the hall. We only have one bathroom so you would have to share. We have a balcony with a “beautiful view of Fashion Valley.” Most of the apartment is furnished, so you would only have to worry about furnishing your own room. Coin laundry is available on site. Street parking only.
Neil is a gentle giant who will probably spend most of his time either at work or at home quietly reading architecture magazines or the New Yorker. He will be studying for architect license exams, so he is requesting this not be a party house. He enjoys sports, beer and hot dogs. I will be coming down a few weekends a month to visit as he will be coming up to visit me.
Neil is asking $500 a month plus half the cost of utilities and Internet. Deposit TBD. Neil is requesting for a mature, quiet, responsible, preferably male grad student or very mature undergrad. The lease is month to month, so you don't have to commit to the whole year. Please no pets (our landlord does not allow dogs and I am allergic to cats and have a deep hatred of birds). We do have a betta named Fishie.
