Montecito cottage description

Enjoy your next vacation in beautiful Montecito! At our Hermosillo house you will experience the bounty of the Santa Barbara area: the ocean with all the associated activities - surfing, fishing, boating- the culture - multiple museums, the Academy of Music, the Old Mission - the fabulous weather all year, excellent restaurants and shopping. The great location sold us on this property. We can spend a week there without driving a car! Butterfly Beach, a little known gem, shared by the famous Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel, is a short walk away. Starbucks is around the corner and shopping and restaurants just a few blocks away. Yet, when we return to the house, we enjoy a comfortable environment. The sunny deck is great for morning coffee and catching up on emails or an evening cocktail while watching the steak on the BBQ.. The children can play in the enclosed yard or have a game of ping pong.
There are two bedroom wings - a master suite and, across the hall, two bedrooms sharing one bath with double sinks and a tub with shower. Both baths have electric heated floors. The living room opens to the dining area and updated kitchen with all appliances including a wine refrigerator. We hope you will give it a try and let us know what you think!

Keywords: Inviting, cozy, updated home with deck and garden. Fabulous location - just minutes to walk to restaurants, shopping, Butterfly Beach and the Biltmore Hotel

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: We are professional people with family in Silicon Valley and China. Santa Barbara is a great place for our family to get together and relax. Great friends, outstanding restaurants and unlimited activities for kids sold us on the Santa Barbara area. Plus, Montecito has outstanding schools and is a wonderful retirement spot in case we choose to relocate. Because we only use the house occasionally, we decided to rent it rather than leave it empty. This has worked out well. For more info and quick response, email directly to carol.maccorkle@gmail

              Why the Owner Chose Montecito:
              Santa Barbara has something for everyone in our family and the quiet, low key village of Montecito was most appealing. The location of this house near the beach and the Lower Village within walking distance to just about everything is what sold us.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The beach is great! The weather unbelievable. The restaurants are excellent. The endless activities - the zoo, the museums, shopping, theaters, wine tasting, biking, horseback riding, spas, summer camps for the children, etc, etc.- appeal to us. It is so relaxing but there is always some activity, if so desired!
