Property description

Please come and enjoy this peaceful and serene setting and our Butterfly Beach Studio Cottage. Tucked away down a quiet lane, but close to all amenities, we know you will love it here. A 10 minute walk to Coast Village Road, you will find everything you need... coffee, food, shopping, groceries, or Butterfly Beach near the Four Season's Biltmore Hotel.

Situated on our property, but not attached to our home, is our unique cottage with private entrance and patio for your enjoyment. This studio has always been a long term rental, but after a beautiful renovation we have decided to make it a vacation rental so others can enjoy as much as we do.
Sit back in the spacious, private patio and barbecue after a lovely day at the beach or enjoy a movie on the 40' flat screen TV. There is a mini kitchen with granite counter and sink plus small appliances for all of your needs.

The cottage is cozy and can fit 2 adults comfortably, and 1 child or 2 small children. We have everything you need for the beach including towels, beach chairs, umbrella, and boogie boards. We also have bicycles for your enjoyment including 2 stylin' beach cruisers. We just added a 2 person spa/jacuzzi. Great for relaxing after a day at the beach or for star gazing with a glass of wine and your favorite someone!

We know you will love it here and we look forward to meeting you soon. Bob & Athena (and Nicole)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1982

About the owner: After meeting in Santa Barbara and marrying here in 1979, we decided to find the perfect property for us. We love the beach and wanted a location that we could walk to most everything or be a few minutes drive away. We bought this property in 1982 and have remodeled and renovated to make it a wonderful home and environment for raising our 3 children. We decided to share this ideal setting with others so that you may enjoy this part of California as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Montecito:
We love the beach, biking, beach volleyball, kayaking, hiking, tennis and our grown kids also enjoy surfing, yoga, paddleboarding and rock climbing when they visit as well. All of these activities are withing a 10 minute walk or car ride from our property. This area has so much to offer, including cultural events, wine tasting, and plenty to see and do in downtown Santa Barbara day and night. It's amazing to return to our peaceful home afterward to relax. Not to mention the wonderful weather we get year-round!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We live on this property and this is a separate, private guest cottage that we are using for a vacation rental.
