About the property

Our recently remodeled rental is just a short walk from Butterfly Beach, Coast V

Our rental is a short walk away from Butterfly Beach, The Biltmore Hotel, Coast Village Road and is close to other wonderful amenities in Montecito, CA. Most of the home has been recently renovated, and has 2 bedrooms with queen sized beds and 2 full bathrooms. One bathroom is an en suite with the master bedroom, and the other is in the hallway, next to the 2nd bedroom. We have a cool, comfortable living room, that is ready for cocktails, games or getting cozy by candlelight. We provide bath and beach towels, as well as a kitchen that is ready for you to live and entertain in! We have both a double and a twin IKEA floor mattress available for guests in our properties and just ask that you reserve one in advance if you would like to have it placed in the house during your stay. We have linens and comforters for them as well. Please note that this rental is in a quiet residential neighborhood, so quiet hours are from 10pm- 7am. If you cannot abide by these quiet hours, then please do not rent our home. In addition, no unauthorized guests will be permitted after 10pm. We want you to feel comfortable in our rental, but we also want to be clear that this is not the place to host a party of any kind or at any hour (i.e. bachelor/bachelorette, wedding after party, family reunion etc.) or have loud music.

Thank you!

About Krista Vickers

I am a Realtor, a baker, a surfer, a wife and a new mother. I have lived in Santa Barbara since I started at UCSB in 1999. While I have worked and lived abroad and even moved to Vermont to attend Graduate School, Santa Barbara has always been my home.

Krista Vickers purchased this bungalow in 1963

Why Krista Vickers chose Montecito

I wasn't born in 1963 when this home was purchased, but our rental was purchased by our family matriarch, and we plan on keeping it in the family forever.

What makes this bungalow unique

Our rental home is a short walk to one of the most gorgeous beaches in Santa Barbara and Montecito. We walk to Butterfly Beach every morning or evening to watch the waves, smell the salt air and remember how blessed we are to live here.

The Four Seasons Biltmore is also just down the street, and you could rent our home for about half the price of a regular hotel room there. However, it is a wonderful place to stop in for a drink and watch the sun go down.

Coast Village Road in Montecito is also just around the corner, and is walkable. You can find cafes, restaurants, shops and conveniences such as CVS And Vons on Coast Village Road.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This rental was a great location, within a short walk to great shopping, restaurants and a lovely beach. The house is well stocked with everything you could possible need, including beach chairs, a grill, spices, olive oil, etc. I was totally comfortable here. A home away from home.

Great place, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. Nice and comfortable place. The binder with the menus that showed good restaurants were nice and helped out when we didn't know where to eat. Place was spacious for 2 couples. The key in the lock box was nice because we didn't have to worry about losing the key, although I would recommend an Emtek keyless entry someday in the future - even easier! And you can change the code after every guest, if needed. We definitely would stay here again! Thank you!

Very good location but the property is not maintained.

  • 3 of 5

Very good location. The property needs maintenance. Several issues that we found immediately after arriving. Owners should invest in fixing the house and replacing old items in the kitchen.

Car: recommended

Our home is a short walk from Butterfly Beach and the Four Season's Biltmore. We are also a short walk from the shops and restaurants on Coast Village Road.

Montecito and Santa Barbara are considered the American Riviera. We are beautifully situated between the Ocean and the mountains, so it is a paradise for the active person or family. Surfing, swimming, stand up paddling, hiking, biking and golfing are some of the activities that you can find right outside your door.
