Montecito house description

If you are looking for a relaxing, comfortable, romantic, private, spacious home away from home in Montecito then look no further. The Orchid Oasis was custom built and completed in 2013 and designed to host those seeking the amenities and comfort of a 5 star hotel but in a private home setting. This quintessential detached guest house is 650 square feet designed for a couple or individual seeking a perfect Montecito vacation.
Located in one of Montecito's most desirable neighborhoods, guests are able to enjoy the convenience of walking to the beach, the lower village, and the upper village. Endless hiking trails, biking trails, beaches, shopping, and dining are some of the wonderful activities that are awaiting your arrival. Our private home is surrounded by professionally landscaped grounds, mature trees, orchids, a koi pond with waterfall, and a green house filled with orchids from all over the world. Guests are encouraged to visit the green house where you will quickly learn why our guest home was named The Orchid Oasis.
This home was custom built and designed in 2013 with top of the line appliances, beautiful hard wood floors, high beam ceilings, open floor plan, large windows, french doors leading to an outside covered patio, new furniture and a beautiful fireplace. Upon entering your private home away from home you will not be disappointed. The natural light that brightens up this home exudes comfort and tranquility.

The beautifully designed kitchen features top of the line stainless steel appliances, new refrigerator, dishwasher, coffee maker, and all of the cooking utensils you need to cook up a fine meal. The living room and dining room are perfectly designed into one large living space offering plenty of room for a couple and a few friends to lounge by the fireplace, relax, and enjoy a home cooked meal. Here you will also find french doors leading to an outside covered furnished patio that allows for an indoor/outdoor dining/living experience. It is not unlikely to eat most of your meals outside while visiting the Orchid Oasis. For those who bring their work along, the living room has a built in office space to set up a laptop, make phone calls, and stay connected while on vacation. The living room also features a flat screen t.v. with all news cable network, high speed internet access, and wireless Sonos music station. There are no details that were left out while designing this beautiful home. Even the bathroom was meticulously designed with custom built-in cabinets contrasted with sea glass colored tiles surrounding the shower and tub. The brand new tub offers a perfect way to end a great day. This large bathroom also includes a separate shower with a rain shower head, new fixtures,with a large mirror and drawer space. There is also a laundry room in the hallway with a new stacked washing machine and dryer.
The Orchid Oasis is completely furnished and turn key ready for your stay. Everything is provided, from furnishings, linens, kitchen ware. Enjoy our books, magazines, and cable movie library. The expansive lush grounds are perfect for relaxation or get together with friends.
The Orchid Oasis is detached from the main house and designed to offer total privacy with all of your traveling needs in mind. You will have your own parking, separate from main house with your own private entrance.

                  It is hard to imagine a more idyllic setting and stunning natural landscape than that found throughout the seaside village of Montecito, California. Long renowned as a verdant retreat, Montecito has become one of, if not the most exclusive and attractive communities in the world. Montecito is also home to an exceptional array of restaurants, boutiques, delis, art galleries, pizza parlors, jewelry stores, ice cream shops, and local merchants along the famed Coast Village Road. Often compared to Rodeo Drive – although more laid back – many residents and visitors enjoy spending the afternoon window-shopping throughout this beautiful area. Other popular attractions include two public parks, a public tennis court, a family-oriented YMCA, and the Montecito Village Shopping Center. Butterfly Beach, one of only a few south facing beaches in southern California, is located in Montecito, backed by the Coral Casino, Biltmore Hotel, and the Santa Barbara Music Academy. Known also as The American Riviera, Santa Barbara is home to fine dining, upscale shopping, first class entertainment venues, historic attractions, year-round beaches and outdoor activities such as golf, tennis, surfing, whale watching, hiking, horseback riding and wine tasting. Truly something for everyone…

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About: I moved to Montecito in the late 60's and was lucky enough to raise my boys in this beautiful town and now watch my grandchildren grow up right down the street from my home. When visiting my home you will quickly see my passion for orchids. My orchid life started as a pot washer for my husband's hundreds of orchids and I quickly became fascinated with the history of all of his complex paphiopedilum collection. His knowledge, love, and enthusiasm for orchids were contagious and soon we built a second greenhouse, and that was the moment that orchids became an important part of my life. I am currently the President of The American Orchid Society and editor in chief of the Orchid Digest. Besides the plants themselves and the never-ending opportunity to learn about them, I love being involved in the orchid world because it offers an opportunity to meet and work with so many amazing and fascinating people. When I am not traveling the world speaking about Orchids, I love spending time with my family and friends. My daughter in law is my house manager and she is the perfect person to answer any and all of your questions.

                  Why Montecito:
                  I decided to build this guest home after discovering one of our two orchid green houses needed a lot of work. After much thought, I decided it would be the perfect place to build a guest home for travelers visiting Montecito and a beautiful representation of space that for many years was the home to orchids from around the world.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Location Location Location... Mountain views and close to beach. Comfort Comfort Comfort... Privacy Privacy Privacy.... Great hostess if needed....
