About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)
The layout of Spring House allows maximum flexibility for multiple families or families traveling with a nanny. This property is owner managed and we are committed to ensuring you have the vacation of your dreams, so please ask us if you have any special needs. We will respect your privacy: Spring House will be ready and waiting for you with no management contact unless you initiate it.
Spring House exceeds customary expectations, and is a luxury experience from original art to thread count to Viking appliances. The living room contains two separate conversation areas which lead to an enclosed terrace through two sets of French doors, where a second fountain provides background music for your dining or lounging pleasure. The formal dining room seats six with room for additional tables and an adjacent bar with five bar stools. The first kitchen is adjacent to the dining room in an open floor plan style sharing the warmth of a gas fueled fireplace and a flatscreen tv. The kitchen is appointed with Viking appliances, granite countertops and a soaring ceiling with skylights. A glass door and pass through windows over a farmhouse sink give way to a gracious brick patio decorated with potted plants and dense landscaping where the third of four fountains gurgles while you dine or relax. The BBQ is located here. The media room also serves as a fourth bedroom with complete privacy; it houses a 47' flatscreen, a second fireplace, and a queen sleeper sofa with additional memory foam feather bed. The studio contains a queen bed, an abbreviated kitchen (sink, microwave, mini-fridge), and a full bathroom. The wall of windows in the studio folds open to a lanai with treadmill, fountain, and jacuzzi.
The master bedroom is furnished with an exotic teak king bed, a fireplace, and flatscreen. It includes a huge walk-in closet with built-in dresser, an en suite bathroom with travertine counters and floors and a dressing table. The second bedroom also has an en suite bathroom, a queen four-poster, and a private balcony. The third bedroom is charmingly decorated with a seating area, and contains a king size bed and a daybed with trundle to sleep four people comfortably. A fourth full bathroom is adjacent to the media room and the third bedroom. The house is well stocked with iPod docking stations, movies, books, games, and puzzles.
The multiple cooking and dining options make Spring House a perfect location for major holidays or multi-family vacations. The extensive landscaping is well-lit for leisurely al fresco evenings in Santa Barbara's year-round temperate climate. The outdoor experience at this compound is a fantasy of light, sound, water and tropical foliage. Expect the very best...You will get it here!

About the owner: I am a retired attorney. I own and manage two beach properties and I am currently renovating a third. I have extensive experience hosting vacation rentals in other areas of Southern California. I am assisted by a highly competent management team that has lived and worked in the Santa Barbara community for 30 years, so you can be assured that you will be well cared for should any concerns arise. We respect your privacy and leave you alone unless you call.
Why the Owner Chose Montecito, CA, USA:
The Butterfly Beach area of Montecito affords our guests a unique and rare opportunity to enjoy many aspects of town on foot. Given how much time most of us spend in our cars, we felt that this was a special gift we wanted to share with visitors to Santa Barbara.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walking virtually next door and being on the gorgeous grounds of the Four Seasons Biltmore is certainly special, whether lingering over Sunday brunch or having a facial and massage at the spa. Afterwards, a walk on the beach feels just right. Sometimes after sleeping in, it's fun to walk over to Jeannine's All-American Bakery and sit outside for a delicious breakfast or lunch. And of course, when we want to see and be seen, we hit the night time scene at Lucky's, the hip Montecito steakhouse owned by Gene Montesano of Lucky Jean's fame.
