Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Quiet boutique guesthouse in the quaint beach town of Summerland with a partial ocean view. Only five minute walk to town and ten minute walk to local beach. Located on a dead-end street right next to hiking trails, you get the best of both worlds. Great for a couple or small family who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle. No car needed!

To make your stay is safe, we deep clean the unit between each booking to ensure complete safety.

The space

The main bedroom features a Tuft & Needle queen bed. The room has a large built-in cabinet for clothing and a double closet.

The cottage has an open living room floor plan with a 48inch smart tv that swivels to either couch or kitchen. Full kitchen featuring full size fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, oven, stove, coffee maker, toaster and all cooking needs.


OUTDOOR

The private outdoor deck gets full sun most of the day with plush outdoor couches to relax on, small patio set to dine on and electric BBQ. There is a small ocean view from living room, deck and kitchen.

There is a backyard to the cottage that is not very manicured but totally accessible with a big Mulberry tree - fun climbing tree for kids!


AMENITIES

The beach is about a 10 minute walk. We provide beach towels and two small beach chairs to use during your stay.

To start your morning off right we provide a full jar of locally roasted coffee upon arrival.

Ethically made body wash, lotion, shampoo and conditioner provided!

Full washer and dryer in the outdoor closet. Detergent under the kitchen sink!


Fully equipped office for those looking to work remotely. The cottage had two googl nests and megablast WiFi to ensure strong internet for all those zoom meetings!

Mobile bluetooth SONOS speaker that you can enjoy indoors, on the patio or bring to the beach with you!

You can also find thoughtfully curated books, puzzle, chess and domino set to enjoy during your stay.

All ceramic dish and drinkware in the cottage is locally made and one of a kind from Anacapa Ceramics.

LOCATION

Tucked into the foothills of Santa Barbara county, Summerland is quiet retreat from the typical city life. With everything in town within walking distance paired with its small-town charm, it’s easy to wind down here! Not too far from the thrill, we are a only 5-10 minute drive from downtown Santa Barbara bustling state street, funk zone, pier and harbor.
