Great location! Clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this Casita. We were in Montecito for a wedding at The Biltmore Four Seasons Resort. This was a clean, comfortable, and private accommodation. It is perfect for two. It is very comfortable and private, even though the cottage is located behind a private residence, you would never know it once inside. There is even a private patio! Pam and Eric are friendly and helpful. They are available IF needed, and want to make sure your stay is enjoyable.

The location is perfect! We walked to town for meals(one block away), The Biltmore for the wedding(three blocks away) and the Pacific(also three blocks away). We even walked to Santa Barbara along the beach. That is a wonderful walk, but be sure you have plenty of sunscreen, a hat and be sure to check the tide schedule.

I would love to come back, but since we live in Michigan, it is doubtful.

A beautiful, private oasis

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very nice as they greeted us and showed us how to work things. Then they remained to themselves so we felt very private. The casita was immaculate and perfect for the 3 nights we were there. A short walk to downtown Montecita and Butterfly/Biltmore Beach. It was a wonderful retreat!

Lovely and comfortable - Ideal stay in the Santa Barbara area

  • 5 of 5

Everything you read in the other 5-star reviews about the location, accomodations, and hosts is true, so I'll try to add a few things that may have gotten missed. The quality of the furnishings and linens is excellent and the artwork is plentiful and attractive, a point many other hosts miss but which makes is feel more like a home than a rental. The landscaping around the property is beautiful - plants everywhere - and a pleasure to admire sitting outside or just walking from the car to the door. The numerous motion-sensing lights were greatly appreciated since we were out every night, another one of those things less thoughtful hosts often skimp on. The cable selection was extensive, and even though we watched very little TV we had the excellent music channels on constantly. We had chosen this location mainly for the proximity to Santa Barbara but we spent at least part of every day in Montecito; the village offers quite a bit and is extremely walkable not to mention Butterfly Beach bing a ten minute walk in the other direction.. In short, we stayed here to be close to SB and had all these little bonuses to enjoy on top of it. We would come back without a second thought.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in a perfect home! We stayed 3 nights and were in town for a long wedding weekend! Pam and Eric's home was a nice alternative to the extremely costly hotel rooms in the area. Thanks!!!

Great studio

  • 5 of 5

The studio was a perfect place to stay for the weekend. It is clean, nice, walking distance to the beach and main street in Montecito. It's a quick cab or uber to downtown Santa Barbara. The owners are very nice and hospitable. There are beach towels and beach chairs available for use. It was great! We would definitely stay there again!
