We had a lovely time at Shaye's! The room was light and airy and felt very spacious. It had everything you might need, including a lovely outdoor shower, a nice private patio, and muffins awaiting us when we arrived. Shaye was very accessible by phone and made our stay easy, including letting us leave our bags behind for a bit after we checked out.
The location is fantastic--just a short walk to the beach, and an even shorter walk to downtown Montecito, which has some great restaurants. (Get breakfast at Jeannine's!) The bathroom has a noisy fan that turns on with the light and the shower does leak a bit, but it didn't really matter. The wifi was very fast, which was a big plus!
Overall, highly recommended!
Shaye was very accomodating and kind. We had a wonderful time! Great location with plenty of privacy. This magical gem is tucked away in a peaceful spot a few minutes walk from the beach. The outdoor shower was an especially enjoyable part of the experience. Thank you Shaye :)!
Our stay at Casita Studio was just what we needed after our long flight from Australia. We stayed 2 nights here and everything was just as described - the bed and pillows was so comfy!! A short stroll to local shops, restaurants and cafes and only 5 mins to the beach. Montecito is a very safe area and we felt at ease walking everywhere. The room itself was cosy and welcoming. The only thing i would say is don't bother with the indoor shower - it sprays water everywhere and just wasn't a pleasant experience! We used the outdoor shower for the time we were here and loved it! Huge showerhead and perfect temperature! We didn't meet shaye during our stay however she was very easily contactable via text as needed and offered some tips about where to do our groceries etc. Overall we had a great stay!
Perfect! Private and charming, comfortable bed. Host was communicative and made it easy!
Staying in Shaye's casita was absolutely wonderful. It's a very private, very romantic little place with everything you need plus some. My favorite part of the experience was the outdoor shower. It's covered in flowers and has a fantastic shower head. Pillows and bed were A+, location was perfect, and communication with Shaye was seamless even though we never met. There is a lovely strip of restaurants and shops just up the road, and the Four Seasons is just down the road-- perfect for a cocktail or two while watching the sunset. I highly recommend staying here!
Unfortunately our stay at the Casita Studio was a bit of a disappointment. The location was good, though quite close to the highway (you can hear cars from inside the unit). The casita was cute and had a comfortable bed, but as other reviewers have mentioned, the bathroom is a bit of a disaster... it desperately needs to be updated and is not functional. The outdoor shower is a neat touch, but unless you want to put on a show for the neighbors who look down on the shower from above, you will be stuck using the mess of the shower in the crummy bathroom. Wifi did not work for the duration of our stay and the host wasn't too interested in correcting the issue. A weekend spent updating the bathroom and a little more attention from the host would really improve this unit.
Communication with Shaye was simple, light, and bright. Our texts ahead of time were all we needed. Parking and entry was super easy, and the space itself was really pretty and fresh. The outdoor shower and bed were especially nice, and the blueberry muffins waiting for our arrival were tasty. We'd stay again. :)
