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.

Excellent space and very accomodating people.
AL and Christy were very respectful of my girlfriend and my space throughout our 2 night stay in their apartment. The apartment was excellently prepared and we were treated excellently. The space itself is wonderful. Furnished like a fancy apartment, we had no trouble feeling at home. One downside was the selection of kitchenware to cook with. However the fact that I'm picking that out as the only downside is a very positive overall review of my stay here. AL and Christy live right next door to the space so if anything comes up, I'm sure nothing will be too hard to fix! I'd totally recommend this space for couples traveling through! Thanks again guys!
Christy met me at her front door with the key and showed me to the studio which by Paris standards was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Great proximity to beautiful beach. Everything I needed for a short weekend to relax.
Al and Christy's studio is a perfect spot for a single person or couple to stay. It was spotless and clean with snacks, drinks and toiletries provided. The furniture and bed were very comfortable and the many windows allowed lots of light and fresh air. It's close enough to the main area that you can walk which is awesome. I highly recommend staying here. My girlfriend and I will definitely be back. Thank you Al and Christy!

Al and Christy's beach studio was one of the best experiences we've had with airbnb. They had a beautiful place and went the extra mile by stocking the unit with snacks, drinks and other items (like shaving cream) that were extremely thoughtful and saved us a trip to the store. Can't recommend this enough and Summerland is a really nice little town.
Thanks very much Al and Christy for hosting us with airbnb.
We always wanted to live here, and we are loving it.
We are happy to help you have a great time in the "American Riviera". There is so much to do and see here! We enjoy walking the beach, travel, cooking, gardening, dining out, hiking, fine wine and friends and the arts. We love meeting new people as well and want to make your stay a nice one.
