Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Our detached artist studio is within a 5 minute walk to all the best Montecito restaurants and less than four blocks to the Biltmore beach. It is cozy, private and has a fabulous, hot, outside shower ! Gaze at the stars while rinsing off the sand !

The space
Our studio is in the ultimate location, park your car and spend the weekend walking...the beach, bars, restaurants, grocery and many unique and deluxe shopping venues are all within an easy walk. The space itself is relaxing and casual, no fuss, all easy and very comfortable. It is quiet, unpretentious and relaxing.

Guest access
We have a stack of clean beach towels waiting, boogie boards, a long soft board and a kayak available. There are two dining areas on the upper garden terrace and an outdoor fireplace on the lower patio.

Other things to note
Note to all, the wonderful outdoor shower is the only shower for the studio ! The studio has a toilet and sink inside.
Guests are welcome to bring a furry friend with them that is well behaved and not a barker ! Dogs love this neighborhood ! Parks, great local walks and the Beach !!! There is an added fee for dogs of $25. per visit, this covers extra cleaning and laundry.
We do have pets on the premises, but our pets are not invited in to the studio ! However if you leave the French doors open you may get a visitor. Hopefully you enjoy both cats and dogs ! They are all friendly.

Our street is a cul de sac so it has no thru traffic and is quiet. We are a stones toss to some of the best eating establishments in the city so that makes our place extremely convenient to going out and having a drink with a fine meal and not having to drive. We are also close to the beach ! Location, location, location !

Hello from Santa Barbara, California ! I'm a native of Southern California, moved to this area in the mid-seventies and have now lived in Montecito for almost forty years ! I am a fan of all that Montecito and Santa Barbara has to offer; the beaches, hiking trails, great restaurants, the harbor and pier, local landmarks such as the Queen of the Missions, Lotusland, the Vedanta Temple, the Music Academy of the West and many more !!!! Our location here in Montecito is very prime and convenient to everything that the lower village has to offer ! Within minutes, by foot, you can be at any one of a dozen delicious restaurants. The best bars, including the Biltmore, are also all within a short walk. World class shops, galleries and boutiques, including Maison K, Silverhorn and Daniel Gibbings jewelers, Peregrine Gallery, Lily and Mate Gallery are all close by and make for a fun afternoon of shopping. Vons, CVS Pharmacy and anything else you could need are also close by. I look forward to hosting you here in gorgeous Montecito ! It is a special part of California, charming and picturesque, and very close to all that Santa Barbara has to offer. Come enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and sunsets at the beach !
