About this listing

Our large private detached studio is clean, comfortable and a super convenient place to stay. We have a comfy queen bed, a fully stocked kitchen, snacks and juice, TV and internet and onsite parking. The beach and restaurants are just steps away!

The space

Spacious detached studio apartment in the beautiful, quaint beach community of Summerland, California, 5 miles south of downtown Santa Barbara. This clean and bright studio has a comfy queen bed with 400 thread count sheets, a truly comfortable sofa hide-a-bed, bathroom with a shower, and a fully stocked kitchen. It has TV and internet. We will have snacks, bottled water, coffee, tea and juice in the studio for you to enjoy. We have a hairdryer and extra toiletries in the bathroom, just in case you forget something. And we have an iron and ironing board and beach chairs, umbrella and towels for you to use during your stay.

Walk to Lookout Park and Summerland Beach, shops and restaurants, as well as Summerland's many antique shops. We have several great restaurants right here in Summerland that are just a short walk away. The very popular Summerland Beach Cafe serves great breakfasts and lunch. Another fun place for lunch and dinner is the local hangout The Nugget, where both Presidents Reagan and Clinton ate at. You never know who you will see there, Kevin Costner, Troy Aikman, and other local celebrities frequent the Nugget.

The February 2012 issue of Sunset magazine picks Summerland as one of the 5 best tropical dream towns in the west! "With picket fences, cedar-shake buildings, and a cute-as-a-button main drag, Summerland is like a dose of New England charm...albeit with palm trees, better surf, and the Bikini Factory. " (URL HIDDEN)

The studio is at the top of a full flight of stairs with a cement and tile landing below. As parents ourselves, we have made the decision to not rent to families with children under the age of four as we do not want a small child to get hurt. Several years ago, we did have a 2 year old boy crash through a baby gate at the top of the stairs and fall but thankfully he was not hurt.

We have a hot tub on the property but it is not insured for guest use, so please do not use the hot tub. Thank you.

Please note that as of January 1, 2017 Santa Barbara County is charging us a 12% transient occupancy (nice name, right?) tax which is imposed on bookings less than 30 consecutive days as well as a $2.20 per night flat fee. These taxes are reflected in the price.

The hosts are charming and very kind. Location is good -for most people you probably need a car to get to the shops in Summerland. Good thing is as it's higher on the hill you don't get the freeway noise and it's lovely and quiet. I want to return and stay there again - so I will vote with feet

Al and Christy's studio was fantastic: spacious, perfectly clean and so cute! My husband and I spent 2 days there and we were so happy! The beach is just minutes away and Santa Barbara center is reachable in 10 minutes drive! We didn't get the chance to meet Al and Christy, but they were very responsive to our messages and very attentive, the perfect hosts! You can tell they spent time and attention in making the studio the perfect place to be! We would definitely come back!!

We are so happy to have chosen to stay with Christy and Al. We had everything we needed and even more. Christy and Al are so nice, lovely and helpful. They are the kind of hosts you only can dream of. Their room is so cosy and comfortable, you can feel the love in every corner. Summerland and Santa Barbara are very nice places as well and so close. The people are all relaxed, the cities are so beautiful, the light breeze is so comfortable. It really is the place to be. We are looking forward coming back to Christy and Al's Summerland-Studio.
