Recent Montecito reviews
"The house and it's location are beyond ideal. You can immediately tell Betsy, the owner, puts thought into making the experience of the guests as comfortable and easy as possible. She was also extremely helpful and accommodating. Very very highly recommended, and we would definitely stay there again if we go back to Santa Barbara."

"This is a beautiful and welcoming family home. We gathered in the area for a family wedding and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home was very nice, the location was terrific, and the homeowner/property manager was a pleasure to work with. I will return another time."

"Happily, this was our second stay at this beautiful retreat! We visit the area often and this home is by far our favorite place to stay! No other property comes close to providing the privacy, relaxation & natural beauty of this home and the outdoor space that is so unique to Montecito! As soon as you drive through the gate, you will be transformed! The property is completely fenced with gorgeous landscaping to maximize the beauty of the huge oaks trees throughout the property along with native Californian plants & multiple lawn areas. The back patio stretches the length of the back of the home providing a stunning vantage point to enjoy the grounds making it a perfect spot to enjoy breakfast in your PJ's! Our only problem was we found ourselves still in those PJ's as lunch was nearing!!:) The owners generously allowed us to bring our beloved dog, and he spent endless hours exploring outside off leash, which is priceless! The inside of this character filled home is an experience all on it's own. It is meticulously maintained by the owners who have added all the modern conveniences of a Chef's kitchen but retained so much of the original details and character of this 1940's home! It truly has that San Ysidro Ranch feel, with the Santa Barbara Stone walls in the living and dining room, saltillo tile floors, wooden ceilings with ample skylights, original stain glass windows, with a lovely fireplace in the living room and master bedroom. It's located in a lovely walkable neighborhood and a 5 minute drive into downtown Montecito! It's an extraordinary place that we hope to return to again and again!!!"

Great home for multigenerational family get together
"We rented Chris's home to get our family together for a major anniversary. It proved to be a first class decision with plenty of space to avoid treading on each others toes and stacks of entertainment possibilities. There is a superb pool (heavily used), spa and barbeque within a very pleasant and well maintained fenced garden. Age range in our group was 2 - 72 there were no complaints. Landlord Chris was very helpful but not obtrusive.
The house is in a very pleasant quiet suburb within easy reach of the town. We have no hesitation recommending this home to any group wanting to spend some time in Santa Barbara."
