Great Beach House
We really loved staying at this house. It is really close to the beach and the house itself was really nice. The neighborhood was quiet and the landscaping offered a lot of privacy. The blackberries growing on property were yummy. It was about a 15-20 minute walk to lower Montecito. A couple of things to the owners of the house. Please fill up the bike tires. Only one bike was usable while we were there. The beach chairs were ripped and tattered. Hard to get comfortable while laying at the beach. Other than that we had a wonderful time.
Fantastic location and very convenient and quiet
This home is a great spot for a young family or empty nesters.. the house has plenty of room, large kitchen, and master bedroom. Bed is very nice! Kitchen has everything needed but i would suggest getting a BBQ and Microwave. The owners rep is very attentive. Willing to help with anything. The best review i can give the place is i would come back...
Felt like a movie star in this private beach house
Such a relaxing and beautiful place to spend a week with family. Perfectly located near the beach and easy traveling distance from everywhere we wanted to go in Santa Barbara, Ventura, etc.
I knew this home was beautiful from the photos, but as a designer was struck by the high end finishes and attention to detail in this house. This is not your typical VRBO thrown together with random furnishings! Everything from the furniture (inside & out), art, lighting, and linens was well appointed and amazing. During the stay we felt comfortable and completely at home, wish we could come back every year!
Ideal Beach Retreat
This cottage was more than we could have imagined, nestled away on a small street in South Montecito. Each day we would take long walks on the beach and sit outside on the porch, catching up on reading, playing games and enjoying the peace and quiet that comes with seclusion, privacy and the Montecito lifestyle.
- The master bed/bath is amazing
- The wrap around porch is large with several smaller seating sections
- The kitchen, while not super huge, is definitely a cooks kitchen with everything you would need to create a beautiful meal
- The yard is small, but it does have both an outdoor bath and shower
- Your neighbors are quite close but everyone respects your privacy
Beautiful relaxing home!
My family just had the most amazing vacation at this beautiful home. The house and decorations are chic, beachy and relaxing. There are so many places to sit and read or talk. We especially loved the wrap around porch with the hammock and porch swing. The location couldnt be any better, a block from some of the best beaches and walking distance to the lower village. There were even bikes for us to use. We look forward to staying here agin!
A Very Special House
If you’re looking for a beach getaway that offers casual, relaxing simplicity yet refined and accessible elegance, then this is the house for you.
The house is located on a quiet street just a short walk from two of the best beaches in Montecito/Santa Barbara. Miramar Beach is a three- to five-minute walk from the house. Hammonds Beach is about a ten-minute walk down a pathway lined with beautiful bougainvillea. We found both beaches to be swimmable and easy to boogie board and paddleboard (note: there are no lifeguards on these beaches).
The house is just a few minutes’ drive (or slightly longer walk/bike ride) to the shops and restaurants on Coast Village Road in Montecito, or to the shopping village at San Ysidro and East Valley Roads.
While you can hear the train from the house, we found it charming and part of the good vibe, rather than annoying. And this house is no closer to the train than the Four Seasons Biltmore or many of the houses in the area. We have stayed at several rentals in the area, and we have heard the train from all of them. It’s part of the charm.
Once you park in the driveway (plenty of parking for two cars) and walk through the wooden gate, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a paradise. The lush grounds and gravel pathway lead to a beautifully appointed, fully updated, light-filled home that offers seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor living. The doors on two sides of the house open up to a large wraparound porch with several areas in which to relax, enjoy a cup of coffee or a book, or catch up with friends and family. The hammock and large porch swing were popular hangouts during our week.
The master bedroom is spacious and enjoys an abundance of natural light and large windows through which you can enjoy the private garden view. The two other bedrooms are a comfortable size and offer trundle beds for extra sleeping capacity. We easily put two kids in one room. There’s also a small office space.
Both bathrooms are fully updated and clean. There’s an outdoor shower (and tub) for rinsing off after a day at the beach.
The kitchen is fully modernized with high-end appliances. The only thing missing for us was an outdoor grill.
The owners were easy to communicate with. They offer their paddleboard, two surfboards, several boogie boards and bicycles to renters.
The property manager was very attentive but not intrusive. She was always quick and accommodating with our questions and requests.
