  • Perfect Slice of Paradise!

    "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."

  • Great location

    "We rented this home for 1 week for a family reunion. There were 7 of us ranging in age from 76 to 22 years. We are all fairly active. The location is fabulous. From the upstairs master bedroom balcony we watched dolphins, whales, otters, sea lions, surfers, boats, etc. You could also see some of this from the downstairs living room & patio, or just walk across the street & actually feel like a "part of the action"! Just a half mile (easy) walk or bike ride to Natural Bridges State Park. Big beach, great spot for flying kites, and the butterfly sanctuary. The trail along West Cliff drive is paved, mostly flat, and follows the bay. 2 miles to the wharf & boardwalk, about 1 mile to the surf museum, lots to see & places to get down to the beach. You can also access the tide pools (& beach at low tide) right across the street from the house. We did not need our car while we were there! We brought most of our food, but the Safeway was a short (less than 1 mile) bike ride away. (We also brought our bikes). Less than a mile from the house is also the Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery, several wineries, bakery, cafe, etc. Again, an easy walk or bike ride. There is also a Costco about 3 miles away. All 4 bedrooms were upstairs. We thought there were 2 masters, but the one on the back side of the house only had a 1/2 bath. There was a full bath downstairs. The beds were comfortable, but for some reason no one wanted to shower in the upstairs hallway bath. They either used the master bath or the downstairs. The kitchen has a 5 burner gas stove, side-by-side fridge / freezer, microwave, double oven. All were clean & working. There was also a gas BBQ that we used on the patio off the kitchen. We brought our own propane tank, but there was one there. There were various pots, pans, etc. Service for 8 dishware & extra silverware. I would suggest bringing a sharp knife if you plan to carve any meats! The dining room table was great for family meals as well as board games, etc. No one ever used the DVD. There was a washer & dryer in the garage & both worked. The overall condition of the house was good, but it really needs a good cleaning. There was ample parking & the neighbors were friendly."

  • Great location, great house

    "Our family of 6 had a wonderful stay for 4 days at Thanksgiving. The kitchen was well stock for preparing our feast and there was space for everyone whether cooking, playing games or watching the Seahawks. We walked to a sandy beach for frisbee and to watch the surfers and into Capitola for coffee( Verve has the best coffee ever!) and to the movie theater. A little market at the end of the block kept teenagers in munchies and burgers, the hot tub kept the adults relaxed and we had our annual thanksgiving ping pong tournament in the backyard. Shylo was easy to work with and responded quickly to all my inquires. I would highly recommend this lovely beach home to family and friends."
