Other Things to Note
This studio is located in the Solvang downtown area and therefor requires payment of a bed tax. 12% will be added on to the rental (not the cleaning or any pet fee).
If I know what you are looking for in your visit, I will try to have related materials available.
As with all the sites I am listed with, I do have a rental agreement that I require to be signed. I would be happy to send it to you prior to confirmation. Or, if once confirmed, you have any concerns or problems with the agreement we could discuss this and if unable to resolve any issues, we could terminate the agreement.
Lake Cachuma (about 20 minutes away) is a Santa Barbara County Park. They have a very nice lake tour on a pontoon boat in the summer.
The Solvang Studio is strictly a non smoking dwelling.
Pets (dogs) are considered. They must be kept in a crate or kennel when the owners are not in the studio. Only small or medium dogs and allowed and must be pre-approved. There is an additional pet fee of $40 but it is not taxed.
Attention has been made to make this a special place to stay and treating the studio with respect and care is essential for this special studio to be enjoyed by others and to ensure a full return of your security deposit.
This was our second trip to Solvang, and we continue to be blown away! Kathelene is so generous by providing delicious snacks that can be paired with wine and gives great tips for local wineries. She also has a lot of reading material on the region which is very helpful. My boyfriend and I love staying at the Solvang studio. It really has everything you need, plus it is right by downtown and is fun to walk the surrounding area. We will definitely be back!
Such a cute studio. Kathelene was a great host. She had a nice basket of snacks and wine to enjoy in the room before we headed out for wine tastings. She thought of EVERYTHING and had a great binder of information for us to use both in her studio and in Solvang. It was very close to town and we walked everywhere. We would definitely go back and stay at the studio again!
Kathelene went above and beyond to be sure we had everything we could have needed. She welcomed us with a basket of snacks, a bottle of wine, and even treats for our dog. Everything was detailed in a form she sent us before we arrived so there would be no issues getting in the front door or finding our way around. She also had a binder for us to reference for places to eat, drink, and play around the area. It was a lifesaver for us - we used it for everything!
Everything was just lovely! I've stayed in many AirBnb's around the world and Kathelene was among the best! The studio was immaculate and beautifully appointed. She even left us a nice bottle of wine and some goodies. It was a perfect combination of a hotel & home experience. Also, we were in town for the Solvang century ride and the location could not have been better for our early AM start.
Thanks for everything, Kathelene!
Kathleen was a fantastic host! Her attention to detail was the best I've ever experienced at an airbnb. Not only did we find wine and a snack basket waiting for us (much needed after a long drive) but she even provided a toiletry kit! And her pet-friendly information was very helpful. Overall a great trip. Would definitely stay again.
Kathelene prepped the studio beautifully for us, with wine, chocolates, bottled water, and restaurant recommendations. The bedding and towels were soft, and the location was perfect for walking to all the cool spots in town. We definitely recommend this place.
About the Host, Kathelene
I am a dentist. This studio apartment is attached to my office.
I bought and remodeled the building in 2007.
My approach to dentistry and all that I do is with intention and quality. So, when I remodeled the original building, a lot of heart and soul was poured into it. This "Solvang Studio" has just recently been converted into a vacation rental.
My goal was to create a welcoming, peaceful and quality environment. It is my wish that your stay here is enjoyable and that you will be able to discover the fun and beauty of Solvang nestled in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley.
I have been a "Santa Ynez Valleyite" for 20 years and would love to share with you places to go and things to do here!
