Amazing host and home
Elle was such a gracious host, despite last minute family emergencies that prevented all of us from coming down. So comfortable and well-appointed. Kids didn't get to enjoy the pool but that will be an amazing addition when we all get to come down again! Thanks, Elle!
Great deal for a beautiful guest house in Montecito
The house is in a lovely part of Montecito, only 5 minutes from Coast Village Rd. The owner was gracious and pleasant, even though we called late at night because we lost our key! (I crawled in an open window, and she replaced our key the next day at no charge.) The house itself is well appointed with a bath / shower, two downstairs bedrooms, an additional loft bedroom with AC, and laundry services. We would stay here again anytime!
Very clean, nice and helpful owner, great location
We enjoyed our stay at sycamore canyon cottage. The kitchen had 3 ovens for use and coffee maker. The pool was beautiful and our kids (ages 2 and 3) enjoyed leaping from the stairs in to the pool. Trails for hiking are only 5 mins away, as well as Santa Barbara Zoo which the kids really enjoyed. This place may not be ideal for young kids unless you're willing to watch them 100% of the time- outside you don't want them to fall in to the pool, and inside, the circular stairway became a mini jungle gym. The living area is upstairs, so we ended up hanging out more in the kitchen for sheer concenience as opposed to the living area. Also one bedroom is the only thoroughfare to the backyard, not really a problem but we had to work around it when putting the kids down for naptime. Overall the cleanliness, great location, and very kind and helpful owner would have us easily consider staying here again....probably when the kids are a little older.
Very pleasant stay in Montecito!
We spent a very enjoyable stay in the Guest House. The neighborhood is superb and quiet, yet with easy access to anywhere in Santa Barbara.
The property was clean and well equipped, and arrangements with the owner were very easy to make. The beds were comfortable and the whole stay was very restful.
Quaint Montecito Guest House
Great location at a great price. We would definitely return to this nicely appointed 2 bedroom guest house with loft. Close to restaurants and shops in Montecito and just a short drive to downtown Santa Barbara. I appreciated that not only was there a coffee maker, but coffee, creamer and sugar were provided.
The beautiful Butterfly Beach and 4 Seasons Biltmore are just 2 miles to The Sycamore Canyon Estate Guest House!
