About Julie Craig

Paul and Julie Craig. My husband and I have been married for almost 25 years. Five kids (his, mine and ours) Paul grew up in Santa Barbara and has never lived anywhere else. I grew up in the Los Angeles area.

Julie Craig purchased this house in 2006

Why Julie Craig chose Montecito

We purchased this home in 2003. We spend five years doing renovations while living there! With a eye for design my husband fell in love with it's potential. It was a long road to accomplishing everything he wanted to do but eventually he succeeded. We wanted to stay here but due to the economy taking an unexpected turn we decided to turn our home into a vacation rental. We have enjoyed seeing many many families coming here for celebrations of all sorts and get to enjoy a wonderful place to come together and celebrate each other. This has brought us great joy.

What makes this house unique

One of the best features of this home is the location. We are walking distance to Coast Village Road, Butterfly Beach and Vons supermarket. We are minutes to State Street and the Santa Barbara Zoo.

Lovely retreat with great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

A bunch of our girlfriends stayed in this lovely VRBO for a long weekend in March. The pictures don't begin to do justice to the details of this home. It's very comfortable with multiple beds, endless couches, and a wonderful, open layout. We enjoyed sitting around the kitchen stools cooking and chatting. The backyard amenities: a pool, hot tub, fireplace, trampoline, ping pong table, etc... made us never want to leave! It also we well located to grocery stores and a nice walk to the Montecito beach. It's also a short drive to Santa Barbara. Highly recommend this hidden gem!

Beautiful home - the outdoor area is AMAZING!

  • 4 of 5

I believe the pictures on the website do NOT do the backyard justice. In fact, I even told Julie she needed better pictures. It is incredible. HUGE. With tons of comfortable seating all around. From right outside the living area, to the beautiful fireplace area, to down by the pool table and ping pong table. The BBQ grill worked great. The pool is gorgeous with lots of seating there too. I love the fence that she adds when there are children there. It made it very secure. The landscaping in the front and back is gorgeous.

Inside the house is really big and comfortable. Again lots of seating. The sliding open doors to the backyard are amazing. We had multiple families and there was plenty of room. Several living areas which is nice. She also has the house stocked with lots of children's activities/books in one area and lots of DVDs in another area which is a nice touch.

The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 are:

1. There was no laundry detergent or dishwasher detergent. So it disturbed me because I don't know how the cleaning crew (who had just left before we arrived) washed the sheets or the dishes.

2 The hot tub was greenish. It should be professionally cleaned after every visit I believe. They did fix it after I mentioned it but that is something that should be done automatically. If the hot tub is not professionally cleaned I wasn't real sure about the pool either.

3. On a smaller note I believe they should add some shelving/cabinets in the bathrooms. Would make it easier with multiple families to put their items.

Overall, a beautiful property - perfect for multiple families. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is concerns I had over cleanliness.

A very special place.

  • 5 of 5

We had a number of people coming into Montecito to be present at my daughters college graduation and was in need of a place large enough to handle them and pleasant enough to add to the occasion. This property did not disappoint. The home is just beautiful, spacious, open and well maintained. The sleeping arrangements were just about perfect. And the cherry on top of this sundae was the rear yard. I would try and explain it but I would have a hard time coming up with the right adjectives. Let's just say, if it wasn't raining and over cast, we would have seen very little of the inside until bedtime. As it was, the group (ages 1 and 1/2 to 65) spent most of the time enjoying the many diversions of the back yard regardless of the weather.

So thank you for providing such a wonderful place for our special occasion. Your home will be forever an integral part of our memories of the celebration that weekend.

Amazing property - would love to return

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely beautiful and is even nicer in person than it looks in the photos. The space (both indoor and outdoor) is conducive to groups as there is tons of seating. We came here to celebrate a low key bachelorette party and had the most perfect weekend lounging by the gorgeous pool. We all fit comfortably in the house and Julie was very accommodating and helpful. Would love to come back!

Best Vacation House Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented a lot of houses through VRBO over the years and this place may well be the closest to perfect we have found. For this visit, there were 8 of us: 2 toddlers, 2 teenagers and 4 adults, and the house has something for everybody. First, the space. The house is amazingly spacious and, with the ability to completely open the sliding doors to the patio (essentially removing the wall between indoors and outdoors), it feels even bigger. So there are great places to gather together and plenty of space if you want to sit and read a book away from the group. The house is generously stocked with everything you might need, and there is a laundry room stocked with all the supplies in case you need to do laundry while you're there. The beds are super comfortable--everyone commented on this. Julie is very kind and helpful. She got the pool fence installed for us on no notice. (I had forgotten to request it ahead of time).

There is so much to do at the house that some of our party literally never left the house for 4 days. Between the pool, Jacuzzi, trampoline, pool table, ping pong table, barbecue area with wood-burning fire place, bocce ball court and lawn area, it felt like our own personal resort. What a find! Those of us who did go out to explore the area found that the house is literally a few minutes from everything--the beach, the mission, downtown, the pier, the zoo. The grocery store and a couple of restaurants are literally around the corner. Because of its proximity to the highway, you will hear some road noise when you're outside, but it didn't bother us at all. And, if you're outside, you do notice the train whistle when the Amtrak train goes by, but our kids loved that. The only thing I would change is that I would move the TV from the smaller seating area to the larger seating area so that everyone can sit and watch a movie at the same time. (But, honestly, we didn't watch much TV while we were there, so it wasn't a big deal.)

The toddlers are convinced that this house IS Santa Barbara and they told us they love Santa Barbara and they want to come back often. We're so grateful that this house is available. It was the perfect vacation place for our two families.
