The studio is cute, well decorated, clean and well equipped (we could have used a few plates, knives and forks though). It is close to Montecito shops and beach. You can drive easily to Santa Barbara. We enjoyed the small garden. The outdoor shower is fun but could be cleaner. We did not showered in the indoor bathroom as it was very small. Unfortunately the wifi was not working and Shaye did not manage to fix it. It was quite hot when we were there so the AC would have been great!
This was a wonderful place to spend time with our family and friends the weekend of our son's wedding at the Four Seasons (Biltmore) and the beach, which was 1/2 mile away. There are lots of open spaces for people to relax and enjoy each other's company, while at the same time offering room for people to have their own space at the same time.
The place is private and located in a neighborhood that feels secure. It was 1/4 mile from the Montecito Inn and the Coast Village Road, so people were able to walk easily to/from those locations.
There are three private bedrooms of which two have their own bathroom. There is one other shared bathroom located in the hallway. The master bedroom does not have it's own bathroom and is not private, since there are glass doors which look out onto a beautiful porch and yard. This was not a big deal for us, but could be for some depending upon who you are staying with and your privacy comfort level. The house has two sleeping lofts also. One is located in a bedroom with a bathroom and one is located in a separate room (office).
There was a ping pong table and exercise location in the yard, which we took advantage of. There was also a great outside seating location right off the kitchen/dining room.
We spent a lot of time cooking in the fully equip kitchen, so if you like to cook....this is a good place to do it.
The house is not air conditioned. We happened to be in Santa Barbara during a hot/humid time, but did not consider this to be an issue. It was slightly sticky during late afternoon/evening, but always cooled off during the night. People with allergies should take this into consideration, since outside airflow is important to staying cool. Keeping everything closed during our stay would not have been an option.
We were able to park three cars comfortably within the gated driveway at one time and there was street parking for additional visitors. This worked out great for all the people coming and going all weekend.
Overall great place with a charming beach vibe.
The stay was great! Amazing location and perfect amenities.
Thanks for everything!
Shaye was a great host! She was very quick to respond, and even helped with a little surprise for my girlfriend. This tucked away studio is clean, spacious, and cozy with lots of natural light. We were out exploring most of the day, but the place can get quite warm with no AC. Luckily it cools down at night, so we just kept the doors open for a bit to help cool it off. The ceiling fan circulates air nicely. The bed is fantastic! I love king size beds, and this mattress was one of the best I've ever slept on. We didn't get a chance to use the fire pit, but the outside area is a great touch. A 10 minute walk to Butterfly Beach, 10 minute drive to downtown SB. I will definitely be visiting again.
The bungalow was great and we would definitely recommend to others. Very quiet and great location in Montecito very close to shops and market.
Shaye's casita studio is a mermaid haven. It is quiet, and peaceful. I had a wonderful stay and Shaye is a wonderful host!
The Montecito Bungalow was beautifully decorated, comfortable, well-appointed and Shaye was a great host! Would definitely return, great location, great place!
This airbnb casita was one of the best I've ever stayed at! Absolutely gorgeous property, inside and out. My sister and the rest of our family had the main house rented, so we were in and out of both houses. The location can't be beat. Walking distance to Butterfly beach and the Biltmore, which also leads to a beautiful walk along the shoreline. The decor is warm, clean, bright and inviting. Beach towels were provided. The fire pit was wonderful to hang around and the garden is beautiful. I will say that the shower is tiny, but it was ok anyway. I would not hesitate to stay here again...soon!
The house was absolutely adorable! It was light and airy and very comfortable. We were visiting Santa Barbara for a family wedding and the house was perfect for our 4 couples. The location couldn't have been more perfect. We walked every morning down to East Beach. The wedding was as the Four Seasons Biltmore and we were able to walk to that as well. Shaye was very responsive with any questions that we had. We will definitely look to stay at the house again.
Wonderful stay at the cottage, can't wait to return!
