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.
Kathelene's studio is ideally located a few short blocks from the center of town, yet on a quiet street away from tourists an traffic. She is a gracious hostess providing complete instructions, restaurant and sightseeing recommendations and some fresh fruit and drinks in the fridge. All I all, an ideal place to stay.
Kathelene was a great host! Communication was easy, the Solvang Studio is true to it's pictures and even better in person. My husband, our dog and I enjoyed the studio and it's very close proximity to the shops, restaurants and tasting rooms in Solvang (2 blocks away!). The studio is well laid out, with Kathelene providing helpful directions, recommendations and amenities along the way - including dog treats! There are guest toiletries in case you forgot yours, which we found helpful. The towels and sheets are of high quality, what you would expect from a luxury hotel. Overall we had a wonderful stay and would love to return in the future. Thanks Kathelene!
Booked a few weeks in advance for a weekend getaway of cycling and wine tasting with my wife Cay. Communication with Kathelene was easy and quick. Loved getting in on check in night and being able to get in without a meetup thanks to a combo lock on the entrance door. The studio was perfect since it was located in downtown Solvang where we could walk and enjoy the town's highlights. We'll return!
The Solvang Studio was perfect. Clean, well equip, great location and wonderful hostess. Wonderful touches through out - complimentary wine and cheese, toiletries and for my four legged friend dog bowls, dog treats, a leash, and a couch cover so they can snuggle next to you and keep it clean.
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!
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!
