The Space

Quaint beach cottage located in the friendly beach community of Summerland, Ca., The weather is so mild here it is often called the American version of the Mediterranean in Europe.5 minute walk to the beach, 5 minute drive to Santa Barbara. Bright and sunny with lovely ocean views from most windows, nice garden area, with picnic table, a patio, and an old stone fireplace.
Cute tiled bathroom with full bath/shower. 2 bedrooms each with queen size beds. Bright furnished kitchen area, with Wedgewood stove, fridge,and washing machine/dryer. Walk to our charming Cape Cod style downtown community and, browse around the many shops and antique stores that Summerland has become famous for. The Summerland Cafe is a great place to take the family for a robust breakfast and lunch, or if you prefer coffee and pastries The Cafe de la Luna is a fun place to relax and meet lots of the locals, with live music on the weekends The Nugget is a famous place to eat too since President Clinton and President Reagen chose the Nugget as their favorite dining spot. Or stroll on down to Lookout Park, and take a relaxing long walk on the beach all the way down to Padaro Lane, homes of many famous people like Kevin Costner.
A 5 minute drive takes you to downtown Santa Barbara, where you can visit the Mission, the Court House, or the Harbor and all of the popular tourist attractions. An electric bus system also runs into SB..Lots to do in this area, swimming, surfing, hiking, bicycle riding, golf, horse back.riding, just to mention a few

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • A peaceful respite from an otherwise hectic So. Calif. environment is what we liked about Summer's Summerland home. Easy walk to the beach and the ocean view made it especially appealing. A sweet spot for our brief stay.

  • This was a perfect place for us to stay. The house is at once beautiful and comfortable. From the big picture window in the front, looking out on the ocean, to the big, dog-friendly fenced backyard the house worked for us in every way. Our dogs enjoyed it at least as much as we did, especially the walks on the beach and the games of chase in the backyard. They did not want to leave. Summer was an excellent host, responding to all our questions promptly and easy going. We hope we ill find a reason to return.

  • The home and neighborhood were exactly as we expected. A cozy home with a view of the ocean that is a 10 minute walk to the beach.

  • Très agréable escale dans cette confortable maison. Nous nous y sommes sentis comme chez nous, en particulier grâce à Summer, qui a su nous mettre à l'aise avec ses explications et son hospitalité. J'y retournerai avec grand plaisir!

  • Summer is a very considerate host, who is very communicative and asked us if there was anything special we wished for her to leave in the fridge for us. Very nice! The cottage is a well-loved, well-lived in space with a great hillside view of the ocean. It is not on the beach, but anyone who knows Summerland knows that the majority of homes are up on the hill overlooking the ocean, with Highway 101 running between the beach and town. If you know that going in, and are aware that there will be road noise, you won't be disappointed. The cottage is like a best friend's place with an eclectic mix of vintage and consignment-style furniture and touches such as dolphin tiles in the bathroom. The landscaping is charming and attracts a large mix of birds. The backyard is lovely for picnicking, sunning and reading.

  • We has a restful long weekend at the house. Enjoyed the amazing view and the lovely back yard. Easy walk down to the beach, a bit steep coming back but manageable. Summer was very easy to work with.

  • What can I say other than perfect. Summer and her place are what makes airbnb great. A home away from home in paradise. Shes there when you need and yet gives you total privacy. Quick to respond and kind enough to leave fresh juices in the fridge, Summer is the ideal host. Clean, fresh, cozy..I will become a regular as this hidden gem isnt a "one hit wonder." Thanks so much for everything Summer, hope to see you again soon

I was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and have lived here in Summerland for over 30 years now. I love this area, the beach, the weather, all the great hikes, and being so close to the city of Santa Barbara, yet living in a small friendly community at the same time.
