We utilized Kay's place for an employee of our company, and Kay was very accommodating. We would definitely use her in the future.

Kay's listing and photos are excellent. The unit looked just as she described it. The finishing are lovely. It was easy to find and access. Parking was no problem. The location is great in that it's easy to get to anywhere in Santa Barbara as well as the 101. Kay left easy instructions and ice cream in the freezer! I appreciated the Britta water filter pitcher, too. She was terrific responding to the very few issues that came up in my 7-week stay. I recommend Sterling Laundry (about 7 minutes from the studio). It's clean, pleasant, and in good repair. I also enjoyed walking on La Cumbre Rd. where there are sidewalks and side streets to explore.

This place is definitely a Santa Barbara gem. Great location, and nestled right off the road for quiet and privacy. It's a perfect space for a couple, and we felt right at home. Kay made it super easy for us to get in, was easily accessible via text and even left us some ice cream in the fridge!

My stay at Kay's Santa Barbara Retreat was excellent. There was a nice note from her when I arrived in the evening and delicious ice cream in the fridge. The apartment was very well equipped and comfortable. I can definitely recommend this accommodation!

My stay at the retreat was great! I had a fully stocked kitchen (with everything I could possibly need), a table to enjoy meals, a futon and mounted TV in the living space by the kitchen, a wall dividing the bedroom and a comfy bed. The bathroom was a great size as well with a bath tub and shower curtain. Kay provided towels and a bath mat in the bathroom as well as linens for the bed. The closet was a good size, with a shelf on top of the hanging rod. While this retreat is next to the home, it feels like a private hideaway. It didn't share walls with the main home and the interaction was minimal. I also had my own backyard, where I stored my bicycle. I loved staying at the SB retreat while on a travel nursing assignment and would highly recommend staying here, whether you're here for a weekend exploring all that Santa Barbara has to offer, or for a couple months like myself. This was a wonderful air bnb experience, if I needed anything during my stay, Kay responded quickly and made sure my needs were met.

I am a full-time mom, and recent transplant to Santa Barbara from the Bay Area. Our family loves the outdoor lifestyle this beautiful place provides! We are kept busy with sports, swimming, and we never miss a football game at our "backyard sports bar!"
