Great spot, especially for couples

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend at Chris & Lisa's studio in Montecito. The room is very private with its own entryway, courtyard and staircase up to parking. Amenities inside are fabulous, very modern, clean and upscale (the shower!). The place was immaculately clean when we arrived, so much so that I was very careful of my activity inside for fear of dirtying it up. We didn't get to meet Chris or Lisa during our stay, as we were out in Downtown Santa Barbara (convenient ~10 min drive away) for the majority of the weekend, but they were very hospitable and accommodating. I will definitely be keeping this spot in my repertoire for future visits.

Owner's Response: It's gratifying to host people who complement what we provide. It's a shame our local government threatens to involve themselves in this low key win-win situation for owners and travelers. There is a real threat to make this arrangement illegal.

Great getaway in the Montecito hills

  • 5 of 5

Loved the room and the bathroom! Bathroom with steam shower was amazing! The studio is very modern and well appointed. The only downside was getting our luggage down the wooden steps from the street to the studio. Overall, a BIG thumbs up! Thank you Chris and Lisa!

Quiet, comfortable getaway

  • 5 of 5

We liked the contemporary design, very nice bathroom and lovely surroundings. We have stayed in Santa Barbara several times and did not miss the noise associated with a downtown location at all! Had coffee on the patio in the morning and enjoyed the peace and quiet.

Great couples getaway studio!

  • 5 of 5

Chris and Lisa have an amazing studio. They we're both very nice and friendly. I had a late (1 am) check in which they accommodated with ease. Would highly recommend staying here. A quick drive gets you to downtown Santa Barbara, but you are far enough away that it is very quiet at night!

Great space, great hosts, highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I celebrated her birthday with a Montecito getaway weekend and the studio was the perfect place for us. It was an easy 15 min uber/lyft to and from the unit to Santa Barbara and close to hiking and incredible views of the mountains.

We met Lisa and her daughter during our stay and they couldn't have been more accommodating. They gave us some recommendations for the weekend and made us feel very welcome.

The studio is nicely appointed with everything you could need. The outdoor area was a nice plus and the steam shower was a great way to start each day.

We attended a concert at the Arlington Theatre on State Street, got dinner at Lark and Loquita in the Funk Zone in Santa Barbara, went for a hike to the Hot Springs in Montecito, and checked out a few wineries and bars and restaurants throughout the weekend.

The trip made for a perfect escape from LA for us and the studio was the perfect home base for our stay. Thanks to Lisa and family for making it special for us. We had a great trip and would definitely recommend this property to anyone considering visiting Montecito or Santa Barbara. We hope to be back again soon.
