A Cottage Beyond Compare
"This property is indeed charming! It is a beautiful, well-maintained, decorated, and landscaped home with comfortable and spacious rooms in the main house, as well as a large, clean guest cottage. There are plenty of social areas both inside and outside for family gatherings. Our family enjoyed several days on the property in September -- relaxing by the pool and dining on the covered patio. The house is located very near to the beach and the village of Montecito. It is a perfect getaway for those wanting privacy -- or just to escape for a relaxing home away from home!! The owners are delightful and available when needed."

"Our family recently rented this home for our visit to Montecito for our sons wedding. We had 4 couples and two other adults and all slept very comfortable. The house was an amazing place for all of us to be able to spend time together visiting, BBQ-ing and enjoying drinks on the patio. There was everything that we could ever need and more, pictures are very accurate as to what you will find here. Walking distance to beach, shopping and restaurants. Betsy was wonderful to work with and very helpful with suggestions for things we needed for the wedding. I would highly recommend this home and definitely would stay there again."

"I've been staying in this wonderful cottage each summer since 2010 and my only hesitation in writing a review is that my secret will be discovered by too many other travelers! This isn't a rental - it's a home. From the beautiful linens to the gourmet kitchen and the stylish bathrooms, every element of the home is well cared for. Just a couple of blocks to the dog-friendly Butterfly Beach and the gorgeous grounds of the Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel, it's the perfect central location for enjoying the best of Montecito. Coast Village Road is full of shops and restaurants and also within walking distance. Downtown Santa Barbara and State Street are just 5 minutes away by car. If you're looking to visit Santa Barbara but be out of the midst of the tourist throngs, this is the perfect location and the perfect vacation home."

"My wife and kids were looking for a place to stay in Santa Barbara and luckily we came across this owner. The owners were gracious enough to help us out with short notice as we were visiting colleges and luckily could not find a hotel. I say that because the unit is perfect for a small family close to shops in Montecito and when we awoke in the morning found the backyard had the most beautiful garden. I didn't want to leave. The unit has a small kitchen, office area, living space and bedroom and small bathroom. It is a perfect place for a getaway! We will definitely be back. Thank you so much for having us at the Secret Garden!"
