Stunning architecture by namesake Kimber Cavendish, a serene setting just a block from the SoCo action, and minimal human contact (including no small children) . . . for many, this adds up to the perfect getaway. The owners call it “elevated self-sufficiency”: You get a keyless entry code to access the property and your room, though there’s always someone around or on quick call to assist you. Accommodations are sleek and sophisticated Euro-minimalist-style with lots of light, splashes of primary colors, and cushy seating areas; luxe bath products and original art add to the appeal. Kimber built the property around a 300-year-old live oak, and a courtyard deck anchoring the hotel’s seven units offers conversation-area seating beside a 25-foot-long water feature. You can read outside your room on a hammock made out of recycled seat belts or in an indoor common area with floor-to-ceiling windows—and a stocked refrigerator. This place also offers surprising value: A self-serve organic breakfast and limitless supply of beer and wine, gourmet coffee, tea, and soft drinks are included in the room rate. Only children 15 and older are permitted.
