Las Positas studio description

Cozy, artistic studio behind private residence. Add a dozen roses or Champagne chilled in ice to start things off on a romantic note! just ask me, and I will arrange everything for you, get creative, flower petals on the bed? A basket of fruit, fresh grown locally, cheeses, pricing on request with local wines. We aim to please and will cater to your pleasure, to add spice to your vacation with us. We cooked fish for a couple that went out fishing on an ocean boat here, they loved that, we cooked dinner for them, and ate together, it was fun. They went whale watching too! Taking advantage of all SB has to offer, wineries, tours, historical buildings, theater, live music venues, we have it all, dance the night away, or do yoga. We will help you design your perfect vacations just ask! I know all the right place to look.

                              About: My husband Sheridan and I are both Los Angeles Natives that have lived in SB area for over 30 years, so we know the area very well. I work on Office Interior projects with local companies, and Sheridan is an arborist. We are avid outdoorsy people, so we know all the cool, inexpensive things to do, and if you like to view nature, and eat well, you will want to talk with us for sure. We look forward to meeing you Denise and Sheridan.

                              Why Las Positas:
                              We love our neigborhood read why all of our renters love it too! close to everything yet feel like you are a world apart in our oak studded canyon by the sea. The wildlife here is amazing the 200 acre park behind us Ellings, attacts birds, and we love the variety of fish, whales, and dofins in our neighborhood.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                              Close to Nature, and yet close to town and the Freeway, but you would never know it in our little dead end canyon, it is so quiet all you can hear is the birds and Cricketts. Safe and nice parking too.
