Montecito house description

Now offering our home here in Montecito for your family vacation. A lovely gem of a getaway in an ideal location for enjoying all that Santa Barbara and its surrounding areas have to offer. Our home offers a total of 5 bedrooms and 3 baths and provides a perfect setting for families vacationing together, a family reunion or wedding lodging, or a quiet getaway for you and your loved ones. (this home is not suitable for throwing parties as it is located in a quite Montecito neighbourhood.) The home is two stories with 3 bedrooms (master bedroom, queen bed, bedroom 2, two twin beds/king converted, Bedroom 3 single bed), two baths upstairs along with the main kitchen/living area. Downstairs, you will find a separate bedroom with queen bed, with an adjoining bedroom, complete with 2 twin beds, ideal for families with young children. There is one full bath downstairs plus a large gathering/living room with flat screen TV and game tables, making the downstairs a suitable accommodation for a separate family when two families are vacationing together. All rooms freshly decorated in a comfortable Santa Barbara style. A large enclosed back yard, garden and patio offer a restful area for alfresco dining and bocce ball or badminton in the grass. Linger with a glass of wine around the fire pit...or roast marshmallows with the kids!

(PLEASE NOTE: separate guest cottage with separate yard on property no longer available for rent)

Plenty of off street parking, washer/dryer available, all linens provided for your comfort.
Kitchen upstairs comes complete with all you will need to prepare your favorite meals, and the local Farmers markets can provide the freshest in season fruits, vegetables, meats and seafood for your palette.
Nestled by a charming seasonal creek, our property is close (less than 1 mile!) to Montecito shops & restaurants, Miramar, Butterfly and East beaches and Summerland, with its Antiques shops, wine tasting and family & pet friendly beach. Downtown Santa Barbara and quaint beach town Carpinteria are just minutes away! Take a day trip up to the wine country, less than an hour's drive up the coast. Owners will happily provide recommendations for local destinations, wineries, restaurants, antiquing, shopping, Realtors (Santa Barbara is a wonderful place to live!) and so much more.

This is a private residence in a quiet Montecito neighbourhood, and as such is NOT suitable for hosting parties, weddings receptions etc. We ask that guests respect this request, and choose other accommodations for your stay.

We look forward to making your stay pleasant and restful.
