Great spot, especially for couples

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend at Chris & Lisa's studio in Montecito. The room is very private with its own entryway, courtyard and staircase up to parking. Amenities inside are fabulous, very modern, clean and upscale (the shower!). The place was immaculately clean when we arrived, so much so that I was very careful of my activity inside for fear of dirtying it up. We didn't get to meet Chris or Lisa during our stay, as we were out in Downtown Santa Barbara (convenient ~10 min drive away) for the majority of the weekend, but they were very hospitable and accommodating. I will definitely be keeping this spot in my repertoire for future visits.

Owner's Response: It's gratifying to host people who complement what we provide. It's a shame our local government threatens to involve themselves in this low key win-win situation for owners and travelers. There is a real threat to make this arrangement illegal.

Absolutely fantastic stay!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great stay we had! My daughter and I had a weekend getaway while she visited Westmont College (a VERY short mile away!)...our stay here was perfect in every way - beautiful neighborhood, private cottage, incredibly clean, sunny & well-appointed! The shower and bathroom overall really ARE that great (!!), the bed comfy, and the sofa area large and spacious. The kitchen area was great for reheating restaurant leftovers, and for making coffee to enjoy on the warm, private and beautiful patio/lawn area. We definitely plan to stay here again - Chris and Lisa were warm and welcoming, and the quiet, serene, clean and comfortable cottage is the perfect Santa Barbara getaway! (Breakfast at the nearby Montecito Coffee Shop was fantatistic - equally friendly hosts, and a warm and welcoming vibe!)

Thank you!!! :)

Out of the way yet still close enough to all kinds of adventurous!

  • 5 of 5

We had volunteered to help out at the Santa Barbara Sea Glass festival and was glad to have found an unusual getaway place to stay as the Avon walk was also happening at the same time. The studio is located in the canyons up and above from Santa Barbara and Montecito. We loved that it was out of the way and yet could still get to where we needed to go in less than 10 minutes. We had a good time exploring the "back" roads as google maps would take us a different way each time. It is very beautiful back there and we took many beautiful pictures of the trees and flowers out that way. The studio does require that you are steady on your feet as you have to climb down about a dozen steps so come with a sense of adventure. Lots of bird calls in the morning and evening and my husband even heard an owl one early morning. Loved the bathroom - lots of counter space and that shower was something else. The lightning, thunder and rain during an unusual summer storm during our last night made for a great visual and audio display. There are lots of recommendations available in the studio for things to do, maps, menus, magazines. We were already familiar with the area but always keen to learn about something new. We will probably be backfor the next sea glass festival!

Great Property

  • 4 of 5

Really beautiful place in a gorgeous setting. I would highly recommend this place to stay when coming to Santa Barbara. Hosts were extremely easy to work with and the suite was great.

Only downside was no A/C which I'm sure is fine the majority of the year. It was extremely hot the 2 days we were in town so the suite was uncomfortably warm at times.
