Montecito house description

Built at the turn of the century, this classic California craftsman is nestled in a quiet beachside hamlet, and thoughtfully remodeled in 2007. As the winner of the 2008 "Charm of Montecito" Award, this property promises a memorable stay surrounded by a relaxed "beach chic" style.

The Living Room centers around the inviting warmth of the large custom river-rock fireplace. Warm hardwood floors flow throughout the main floor. In true craftsman style the perfect place for morning coffee at sunrise is on the east-facing covered front porch just outside.

The Kitchen is well appointed and fully equipped for ease of preparing great meals. It features stainless steel appliances and a wine cooler. Dine in relaxed fashion at the large country farm table, or open the French doors to the side deck to enjoy dessert under the stars at the large teak table. The Weber gas grill completes this practical outdoor area.

Just off the Dining Room is a private Master Suite of cool ocean blue colors. This soothing space has a queen size bed, large walk-in closet, and a private Bathroom.

A sunny yellow Bedroom with queen-size bed has access to a shared Bathroom. The third Bedroom is appointed with a queen-size bed, and has convenient access to the spa just outside.

Upstairs, the attic with full bathroom has been cleverly converted to a room for younger guests to have a space of their own. The addition of a futon and built-in twin bed adds sleeping options for tired teens! Bean bag chairs in front of the TV offer a great place for Saturday morning cartoons for happy kids. The built-in bed is the perfect place for a nap or to just curl up with a favorite book.

The backyard's green lawn invites lazy afternoons of croquet, or evenings of twilight entertaining creek side. Outdoor seating throughout the backyard allows for sipping wine on those warm Montecito evenings. The converted garage is a bright and versatile recreation area, with ping-pong table and doors to the backyard to stay connected to those enjoying a more leisurely pace. After a fun day of beachcombing and playing in the surf, enjoy a warm outdoor shower and a soak in the 6-person spa. Beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach toys are provided for your enjoyment.

An easy stroll from Sand Dollar Retreat takes you to Montecito's most popular local beaches. Fill up the wagon with a picnic and sand toys and take the family to Miramar Beach, which will take you literally less than 2 minutes! Hammond's Meadow is a short 5-minute walk, and Butterfly Beach in front of the renownedFour Seasons Biltmore will take guests a mere 10 minutes. Indulge in a little shopping or culinary exploration in the world class shops and restaurants of nearby Coast Village Road.

With its ideal coastal location, Sand Dollar Retreat is the perfect starting place for your next escape from the winter chill, or an all to busy life-no matter what the season! Once here, your cares will melt away as you relax and settle into the peaceful lifestyle of a true Montecito Beach "local".
