The Sycamore Canyon Estate Guest House is located near the Upper Village of Montecito and is across from the spectacular landmark estate, Ganna Walska's Lotusland. Adjacent to the Main House, guests in this 2 Bedroom 1 Bath unit can enjoy use of their private patio. This guest house offers private accommodations with a separate entrance and a private patio.

As you wind your way down Sycamore Canyon Road amidst the movie stars and the rich you will come to the beautiful gated entry of the Sycamore Canyon Estate! Turn left and go through the gates and up the long paved drive way to the Estate. Park your car on the right side at the top of the driveway, parallel to the street. Please do not park in front of the garages. Find your key and enter the charming Guest House!

You will enter into the dining area and kitchen. The dining area has seating for up to 5 guests with table and 4 chairs and a bench for 2. The kitchen is fully equipped with a GE side by side oversized refrigerator, 4-burner Hotpoint range and oven, two additional Bosch wall ovens, countertops, double porcelain sink and chrome faucet.
