Betsy Winthrop purchased this House in 2007
Why Betsy Winthrop chose Montecito
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.
What makes this House unique
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, if you want to see and be seen, or do some celebrity watching, hit the night time scene at Lucky's, the hip Montecito steakhouse owned by Gene Montesano of Lucky Jean's fame.

we really enjoyed our stay. house was as described, clean and cozy. kitchen was well stocked with anything you may need. we will be back again!
Great for a short weekend with a big group
Overall really great. Very nice home and beautiful Backyard. Open kitchen great hang out spot.
The only issue was that the Master bath shower never got hot..
I want to assure future travelers that there is plentiful hot water to the master bath shower. The faucet is unconventional and can be confusing. We have addressed this issue by creating a short video which we can text to guests who are having trouble adjusting the hot valve.
It was very good... though it was a problem when we tried to start the shower.. instructions should be more detailed.. but overall the experience was fabulous... and the preparation done for the twins was worth mentioning!!!
Perfect place for my family with plenty of space and located near beach, restaurants, and shops.
Betsy was was easy to work with and was able handled our change in schedule.
Little piece of heaven
Our stay at Spring House was everything I could of dreamed of! House was beautiful and very clean. Elizabeth & her assistant were absolutely lovely to deal. Would highly recommend this place & hopefully will be back to visit again with my family.
This is a great spot. Close to restaurants and the beach, BEAUTIFUL grounds/landscaping. Convenient to everything. Loved our stay and will be back!
