Montecito cottage description

ASK ABOUT OUR SPECIAL SPRING RATES FOR APRIL-JUNE!!! The Quintessential 1940's Montecito Cottage is located in the Upper Village of Montecito. Wood windows and french doors open out to mature landscaping & gardens. A front privacy gate closes off the property, leaving you with all the peacefulness and ease that equals a well deserved retreat.
So close to all the amenities and activities that Montecito and Santa Barbara has to offer, yet so far away from 'tourbillon d'activity'. Relax on Adirondack chairs, look out to the mountains, or listen to the birds that flock to the mature gardens surrounding the cottage. Sit back after a long day of exploring the area with a glass of local Santa Barbara wine. Or take a stroll around the neighborhood and discover the unique row of cottages that are full of history and charm.

The cottage is architecturally preserved and built to last. It has lots of storage cupboards, and the charm of the 1940's. Original hardwood floors throughout, french doors and oversized wood windows. An efficient gravity heater warms the house without a sound, so that the orchestral display of sound from our visiting bird population can be heard throughout the day. No need for air conditioning. We are blessed with a Pacific ocean current even on the warmest days. There is a full bath, with shower and tub, a bedroom with large windows and a pull out sofabed in the Living Room for 2 additional guests. The surrounding gardens are mature, with 12 foot high honeysuckle hedges, bougainvillea, trumpet vines and trees. The moment you step onto the property, you feel a sense of serenity and calm, as you are enveloped with greenery and perfumed air. Privacy, peace and a stone's throw away from all the amenities you need to enjoy your stay in lovely Montecito, which in Chumash means 'little woods'.
You'll feel so at home, in this Quintessential Cottage that you'll never want to leave...
