Absolutely Great
Absolutely perfect. Chris was very kind and accommodating. He helped when we needed it, but otherwise gave us our privacy. The location is great. The guest room itself is stunning. Well designed, great bed, great couch, great television, great shower, perfect amount of storage for two people. Our stay was short but it was wonderful and we will definitely visit again. Really, it couldn't have been better. Highly, highly recommended.

Perfect Getaway
My wife and I chose this studio for our anniversary weekend. It was very private and close to everything in Montecito, Santa Barbara, and SB wine country. The studio is modern and updated. The steam shower is great. The owners were very cordial and respected our privacy. I would absolutely return again. The views are amazing. It was the perfect getaway for our anniversary. Oh, and the security deposit was returned in just a day or two.

Nice quiet studio for a weekend in Montecito/Santa Barbara!
We had a great two night stay in this open studio. High ceilings, clean modern decore, bright with lots of windows, big screen tv with home theater sound, wifi, new bathroom with BIG shower and steam function, tucked on the side of the main property with private entrance. Hosts are wonderful -- non-invasive but really helpful and clear. It's spare design is great in general, but if you need a hair dryer, iron, or coffee maker, you'll probably have to ask the hosts because they're not available in the room. The bed is perfectly fine, but as an inflatable it is really the only detraction for what is otherwise a terrific accommodation. We had a great stay! Thanks!!!

Comfortable, clean, modern and quiet.
My wife and I booked with Chris as part of a trip to celebrate an anniversary. Chris made us feel very welcome and was a very accommodating host; he was easily reachable by phone or text during our entire stay and even provided us with an iron and ironing board when we needed one. The room is very spacious, very clean and modern. The recent renovation really shows. Very nice entertainment center and steam shower. Easy connection to wi-fi. It has a private entrance on an opposite side of the house from the main entrance, so we never felt like we would be bothering anyone if we came back late. The house is tucked away in a canyon in a residential neighborhood on a street that gets very little traffic. Chris has a space set aside on the street for parking. Downtown Santa Barbara is literally just a couple of minutes drive away, so this is a nice getaway if you don't want to be in a hotel down in the thick of things. One thing that guests may want to be aware of is that the bed is an inflatable mattress with a memory foam surface on a folding frame, so it is not a traditional mattress on a box spring. I found it comfortable and had no issue sleeping on it. It's definitely not a deal-breaker; I would not consider it a reason not to book at this very nice room with a very pleasant host unless one was vehemently opposed to the idea of sleeping on an inflatable mattress.

Not up to expectations
The environment is very nice and at first sight the studio looked as per the photo published on the net. BUT there were practically no tools to cook or to eat. Only microwave for cooking. No pans. No coffee machine, no mixer. Not even spoons.no bowls.the worst was to come when we found out the bed was no true bed. It is an inflatable camping bed. We tried to sleep the first night on it but it was impossible. When one of us moved, the other fell out of the bed because it was all so unstable. The owner could not offer an alternative bed and accepted to reimburse 2 out of the 3 nights but not at the rate we had prepais flipkey but the net amount he had collected from them. We then looked for a hotel which was more expensive. We do have pictures of the camping bed on request.

Our rental studio has been on the market only for one month (since July 2014). "Pancho666923" was our 6th guest in that time and it saddened us to have had our first "sour grapes" experience. I think it is important for guests to read the information provided on the website before booking. It would have, in this case I believe, avoided some of their disappointments. Our listing states clearly that there is a microwave and refrigerator only. It is advertised and photographed as such. It surprised me to learn within minutes of the couple arriving that they loved to cook, wanted to make gazpacho -- where was the blender, mixer, and coffee maker? I told them there was not a full kitchen; we clearly did not represent having same. Nonetheless we offered to provide them our personal items as we live on premise. Bed comfort is very subjective and I understand some guests want a conventional bed. This is not what we provide. But neither is this a camping experience. This is not a aerobed thrown on the floor. This is the Queen guest bed made by a well-established company Frontgate -- it is the top of their line of beds. It is portable. We purchased their optional memory foam top for added comfort. I first experienced this bed as a guest in a hotel -- the Kimber Modern in Austin, TX and loved it. When I set up the guest room this year I specifically called the hotel to get the name of the bed as I felt it would be perfect for this guest application. I don't want anyone here who is not completely comfortable. I have taken much time and effort to make this a beautiful accommodation. Seeing that these guests had expectations not met I offered to help them within the hour of their arrival find a hotel and a refund of all my proceeds. They declined and stayed the night. The next morning they informed me they wanted to leave and so I refunded 2 of the 3 nights of my proceeds. I was not obligated to refund anything contractually. I feel others have really enjoyed their stay. Time will tell as other reviews come in. Thank you.
