                            We had a great stay at the charming guest cottage in Montecito! Collette was a very gracious hostess and very helpful and easy to work with! The visits from her dogs were a treat as well! We were in town for a horse show and that kept us too busy to enjoy the pool this trip but we will be returning and hope to be able to stay again! I made the mistake of leaving some personal belongings behind and Collette was gracious enough to return them to me! Thanks again Collette!

                            This is a charming and beautiful cottage and is wonderfully private. It is very clean and comfortable and had everything that we needed. The tennis court is just a few steps from the pool, which is a few steps from the cottage. We enjoyed the tennis, the hot tub and the friendly, unobtrusive visits from Milo and Daisy! Colette recommended a wonderful place for dinner, the Cold Springs Tavern, and it was perfect for celebrating our special occasion. Would definitely return again!

                            This is a good size guest house behind a house on a gated property, making it very quiet and private. The owner was accommodating and very easy to contact. The house itself is quite comfortable and spacious, with a huge canopy bed separated from the living room with pocket doors. The bathroom is nicely done with lovely tile work and a big shower. There is a small kitchen as well as a fireplace, but we did not get a chance to use it( no logs were provided.) My favorite feature is the pool, which is literally steps from the front door. My husband and I used it as much as we could...and there is also a great hot tub nestled in one corner of the pool. Robes were provided, which was a nice touch, making it feel like our own private spa weekend! Would highly recommend for a couple looking to get away for a little "quiet time".

                            We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. The cottage was immaculate and cozy with a lovely, sparkling pool. The property surrounding the cottage is so peaceful with beautiful gardens and a stunning view of the mountains. The owner, Colette was so warm and welcoming during our stay. We especially loved being greeted by the owners adorable dogs when we arrived back at the cottage. This property is truly a little paradise in Montecito. We will definitely be returning!

                            This was a great place for a nice break for my husband, 9-year-old son and me. We enjoyed the views the pool deck of the mountains right above Colette's own house and garden. The stars were especially bright at this location, away from the lights of Los Angeles. We enjoyed tennis every day and the spa at night. The cottage was the perfect size and very comfortable for the 3 of us.

                            My husband and I stayed at Colette's charming guest house for a weekend getaway and it was EXACTLY what the doctor ordered! Plenty of privacy, utterly charming and quiet. The weather was perfection while we were there so we thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the hot tub each day. The pictures are true to what the place is like as well. Colette was a wonderful hostess and the dogs were hilarious, well trained in how to get treats from visitors. Nothing was walkable but that was fine for us because we just wanted to stay in most of the time. When we did venture out, it took only a few minutes to get anywhere. HIGHLY recommend this wonderful guest house!

                            My husband and I just returned from a 2 week stay in this most unbelievable cottage..... It was the most amazing experience for both of us. The location could not have been better... Close to everything by car....hiking trails... The beach.... Fabulous restaurants.... Great shopping.... Great outdoor produce markets....Colette met us upon our arrival and showed us to the cottage.... We walked in.... No surprises.... Everything was perfect.... Decorated so tastefully.... It was for sure the most relaxing trip we have ever taken.... Leaving was the hardest.... This cottage is a find.... We would highly recommend it and we promise it would be an experience that you would forever remember.... Like us!

                            My husband, 9 month old daughter and I spent a perfect week at Colette's guest cottage. The description and photos are spot on - it's charming, very comfortable (great bed!), nicely decorated, peaceful and private. Having the pool right out the front door made our week! Colette was a wonderful hostess, readily available for questions and requests. She stopped by a few times to be sure we had everything we needed, but was completely unobtrusive. We really felt like we had the place to ourselves. Her sweet and very nicely behaved dogs would frequently stop by for a quick visit. Our daughter adored them! We cooked most meals at the house- there's a nice bbq on the pool deck and the kitchen is equipped with the basics (a collander would be a good addition!). The linens were amply stocked. The cottage was clean and tidy. We loved it and hope to be back someday! Thanks Collete!

                            We had the most fantastic babymoon at Tabor lane cottage. It was such a treat to be able to relax by the pool in the sun (with the doggies). Colette was absolutely wonderful making us feel very at home and made some great restaurant recommendations! The cottage had everything we needed and offered complete privacy. All in all the perfect place for us! Thank you again for the most wonderful holiday, we loved it and highly recommend staying here, we will be sure to return! G&K

                            This Cottage is as close to perfect at one could expect. It is beautifully finished in every way. The setting is amazing - private gated property, secluded, comfortable, and well done. It exceeded our expectations in every way. It was such a lovely Cottage we did not want to leave to explore the surrounding area. The very friendly owner, Colette, greeted us warmly and ensured we were well informed about the Cottage and the surrounding Montecito, Santa Barbara and wine country. This was our first experience in the Santa Barbara area and we look forward to returning to the Cottage soon. We would absolutely recomment this property to family, friends, or anyone who appreciates cleanliness, quality and comfort.

                          About the owner: We are an English family and came to Santa Barbara and fell in love with it. We were lucky enough to be able to live here and bought this property which we have remodeled extensively over the years. It is the most amazing place for families and children.

                          Why the Owner Chose Montecito:
                          We chose to buy in this area because Santa Barbara is the most beautiful and amazing place.
