Yet another fantastic stay at this beautiful home!
"We have just had our 6th stay at this beautiful home! We love it so much we keep coming back it feels like we are staying in a friends house rather than a rental property as it is so warm and comfortable, Nik the owner is very attentive yet considers our privacy. We have stayed at other rentals and been relaxing by the pool and the owner has just walked in on the rare occasion that Nik has turned up he always knocks on the door and never just walks in. The house is lovely and the gardens are beautiful plenty of space to relax as a group but equally lots of little places to sit and read a book in quiet. Ideally located for the beach, Santa Barbara the quaint charm of Montecito yet the hustle and bustle of LA is only 90 minutes away. In fact we love it so much we have booked again for next year!"

"We just experienced our 4th consecutive spring visit to Carla's Cottages! We always rent the poolside unit for the month of April since it's the largest (2br/2ba) and even though it's just myself, my husband and our dog, It's become our home away from home and lives so large! We cook dinner generally 5-6 nights a week and treat ourselves to dinner out onice in a while...but with a full kitchen we eat three meals a day on the beautiful patio or at our dining room table that seats 4! The location is perfectly situated to access the best hiking and biking trails as well as dog friendly beaches from Summerland to Butterfly! We feel so lucky to have found this special place especially since it is dog friendly! A rare find in Montecito, especially at this price point!"

"We stayed for the weekend with our adult daughters, and I'm happy to know we have such a sweet spot to land when we come back to Montecito. The cottage is ... well a cottage, and so not large, but the space is not at all tight. The rooms are open and light, with a fairytale forest feeling from the mature plants and shady garden. My first thought upon entering was that it was the house I'd dreamed of owning when I was young. The bed was comfy (I didn't ask about the sleeper sofa, but the girls didn't complain), there was room to sit together and play games, eat a meal at ease around the table, and lounge about with books on easy chairs. I loved the soft air moving through the sheer curtains, and the protected quiet feel of the night. The owner is unobtrusive, friendly, and responsive."

"This was the week of my daughter's wedding and, of course, everything had to be perfect.
Staying at this East Beach Cottage was perfect. First of all, David was so easy to work with, which put us at ease. He returned every phone call very promptly and was always pleasant and helpful.
The cottage was adorable and so inviting. Everything was very clean and in good working condition. I only wish my own home were as well stocked with appliances, dishes, etc. as this cottage
was. There was an ample supply of towels, linens, silverware, cookware, etc. It is so conveniently located. 100 steps to a wonderful market that has everything one might need. It is a block from the Fess Parker Double Tree which is where the wedding reception was held.
It is a quick walk to the East Beach Grill and the beautiful Pacific. Although we did not have time to utilize them, the garage is full of bicycles, beach chairs, etc. The only minor hitch was sharing a driveway with the attached cottage, but there were enough spaces to park on the street that this did not detract from the wonderful time we spent there. The neighborhood was quiet and felt very safe. David was only a phone call away if there was a question. I would highly recommend East Beach Cottage for a relaxing, stress-free get-away."
