Wonderful Getaway Retreat
"Carla's cottage was amazing, especially the location in Montecito. It's just a few minutes from the freeway (101 and what a beautiful drive! We stayed 3 nights and thouroughly enjoyed our time, definately WAY better than a hotel experience. Carla is on top of her appointments and was super friendly and informative. She truly reflects the laid back Santa Barbara lifestyle and will make you feel right at home. The ammenities were great and all the neighbors were great too. Definately give her cottages a go next time you're in SB, you will be very happy :)
PS. DOG FRIENDLY!!!"

"We stayed here for a month over the summer and loved every minute of it! Walking distance of fantastic restaurants (definitely try Cava, Sakana Sushi, and Tre Lune), shopping, groceries, and less than a half mile walk to Butterfly Beach. The house is beautifully updated with hardwood floors (other than the bedrooms which are carpeted), an update kitchen (with granite/stainless steel), and an excellent washer and dryer. The house was fully stocked with everything we could possibly need for the summer. Highly recommend and we hope to return again!"

"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!"

"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."
