Beautiful Montecito Beach House Just A 1/2 Block From Miramar Beach
average rating of 5.0 based on 6 reviews

Ideal Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fantastic House!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful 10 day stay at this house. When sitting in the hammock or the swinging chair on the front deck you almost think that you are in Hawaii or Costa Rica. The decor inside is top notch and the bi fold doors open up on both sides to totally bring the outside in. The walk to the beach is short and easy. As mentioned before, you can hear the train but it is more charming than annoying. We look forward to returning next year!

Dreamy house short walk from quiet beach

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our week long stay at this sweet home near Miramar beach and everyone LOVED this house. We are a family with a 5th grade son and a daughter just out of college. All ages will love this place. Our son says he liked this vacation better than our Hawaii trips. The house has a wonderful beach vibe, both sophisticated and down to earth. The architect and interior decorator did a fantastic job with the renovation - everything has been redone with a careful eye to quality and comfort. The natural light in the house is fabulous. There are many places to hang out and be comfortable. The house is extremely well equipped. The kitchen is fantastic as are all the cooking implements. We had friends come over for dinner, its a great house for entertaining. The table seats 8 easily. The furniture is very high end, with down fill sofas, and numerous custom made pieces. The bedding is very comfortable and of high quality. Almost every light in the house is on a dimmer switch. The windows, doors, fixtures etc are all beautifully made. The street is very quiet and charming, our son rode his bike alone thru the neighborhood. Near other adorable cottages, the house is very private, down a long gravel driveway. It is approx 3 minutes walk to the sand at Miramar beach, 10 minutes walk to Hammands beach, and about 13 minutes walk to Butterfly beach which is across the street from the Four Seasons Biltmore and Coral Casino. Like the Biltmore, this house is near the train tracks. The train passes by in the morning, and again in the late afternoon and evening. We loved the sound - it was exciting and romantic. We've stayed at the Biltmore many times - this was a lot more fun for our family because we had much more freedom and were more comfortable and relaxed. Downtown Montecito is charming, an easy bike ride or few minutes drive from the house, we had breakfast at Jeanines numerous times. The Montecito Country Mart is also very close by. We loved being able to easily walk back and forth to the beach during the day with paddle board, or wine and cheese. The outdoor shower was awesome for cleaning up after beach play. We also went hiking, horseback riding on Summerland beach and deep sea fishing (Coral Sea). The house had everything we needed to enjoy the beach and each other's company. It is a very relaxing & beautiful home - best VRBO home we've ever visited by far. We didn't want to leave and will be back again!
