This cottage provided our family of five with one of the best vacations of our lives. Starting with the owner's exceptional responsiveness and carrying through to every detail, we could not have asked for a better experience. The cottage is situated in the most beautiful, family-friendly nook of Montecito, which is wonderful to explore on foot. My husband and I are runners and we devoured the hills and views that open up right from the driveway. We opened up the hiking trail map thoughtfully provided by the owners and found many trails that suited our family's aptitude for altitude. We loved the beaches that are, in some cases, as close as a 5 min drive, all with easy parking. But most of all we loved coming back after our adventures to what we were lucky enough to call our home from home for the week. This cottage is pure delight: designed with comfort and enjoyment for adult and child alike. Our three kids (11, 8 and 5) were enchanted by the playroom with loft, toys and puzzles. They could not believe a place as magical as the "treeless treehouse" could exist. With it's curated and well presented selection of art materials (even envelopes for mailing letters and art created on site!), it was clear the owners have the unique ability to see the world through a child's eyes. A long-roped tree swing, in ground trampoline and of course perfectly proportioned (and tree shaded)! salt water pool sealed the deal for our kids - and for us.
We also loved spending the "marine layer mornings" cozied up around the bright and inviting kitchen table or snug in the living room, with its inviting array of textures and decorative elements. Count yourself lucky indeed if you land here.
Beautiful family home and garden in perfect location
We stayed here in August with our two children aged 8 and 6 and it couldn't have been more perfect for us. Both the house and garden have an immediate wow factor, due to the beautiful decor and design and incredible attention to detail. It was very practical too, both in layout and facilities. Our kids were hardly out of the pool and they loved the Wendy house and trampoline, as well as the very well stocked playroom attached to the children's bedroom. As for us, we adored the outside sitting area - wonderful for relaxing, card games with the kids and reading. Allison was very prompt in providing an iron and board when we needed one and we found her recommendations for beaches and restaurants to visit absolutely great for us. We also loved the area - not just the neighborhood itself, but also Montecito and Santa Barbara. Very highly recommended. If we didn't live as far away as England, we'd be back very soon!
Great family cottage in perfect location
We rented this beautiful cottage for a week in August. The backyard is a family's and kid's dream. My kids ages 9 and 7 were in absolute heaven with the yard, the bunk beds, and the cute little playroom attached to their room stocked with books, puzzles and toys. The house is lovely and has a great layout. The master and master bath are on one side while the kids room and playroom are on the other (bust just separated by the living room so it's all still very close). The kitchen is beautifully done and well stocked for preparing meals. We found the house to be very clean and well taken care of. The taste, style and furnishings are all high end, lovely and comfortable. We will definitely return here when our travels bring us back to SB.
