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.

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.
