  • Extraordinary Home and Experience

    "We gave this home 5 stars because the home itself simply overwhelmed us and easily overcame any local inconsequential issues. The home was simply beautiful. The decor sophisticated yet supremely comfortable. The sleeping quarters clean and comfortable. The view from each window serene, different, and lush. The room layout ideal. The separate and multiple decks and patios areas to congregate or for individual contemplation were abundant. The home was impeccable inside and out. The home was within a short walking distance to Butterfly Beach, Four Seasons Resort, Downtown Montecito, and a short drive to Downtown Santa Barbara. Ms. Winthrope was so accommodating and cordial from initial contact and during our entire stay that she enhanced our entire experience beyond description. Ms. Winthrop simply did not overlook a single detail. Our entire family just raved about the home. The only issues we experienced were an occasional train whistle since the home is located near the railroad tracks and a hum from the traffic on the 101. However, from our perspective, these issues were inconsequential compared to the overwhelming positives offered by this outstanding home, and by Ms. Wintrop herself. We simply fell in love with this home. We look forward to coming back again soon. Highly recommended."

  • Beautiful home.

    "The pictures and reviews are wonderful, but this house is so much more spectacular ! An absolutely perfect spot for a family and every amenity is taken care of. We had many reservations over the time we were spending here, but ending up canceling and spending as much time as possible here at the home. The outdoors areas are as nice as any resort with much more comfort ! Vonna was wonderful to deal with and has such an attention to detail as is evident everywhere in the home. We will definitely be coming back here :)"

  • A gorgeous place to rest

    "When my family is on vacation, the best we wait for is an amazing place to go and a great house to stay. Montecito and Montecito Garden Home was a happy surprise. The property has a beautiful garden and a super mountain view, special spots to whole family enjoy, charmingly furnished and decorated, impeccably maintained and… a housekeeper and gardeners once a week! We had good time enjoying the house: cooking, reading good books (Rufus has a good collection of them!) or just resting under the trees in the garden with a glass of wine. We are planning to come back soon and stay more time at this lovely house. Just a walk from Montecito Village, near the grocery, restaurants, bank, shops, gas station. Rufus offered all support we needed, careful with details to make us feel welcome."

  • Amazing & Wonderful Estate to rent for family vacation

    "My family (15 adults & teens) just enjoyed a perfect family vacation at Ravenscroft. It is a spectacular and unique property. The owners have lovingly restored the home to it's original grandeur and it was a special treat to be able to call this estate home for a week. The grounds are stunning. The pool, jacuzzi and tennis court were so well maintained. There's a chicken coop on the property and we were able to get fresh eggs for breakfast. Upon our arrival, the kitchen was stocked with everything we'd requested and a full dinner was left for us so we didn't have to cook or shop on that first night. On a different night, we hired the private chef recommended to us and she was outstanding. There is air conditioning in the master suite and fans provided in the other rooms although the gorgeous Montecito weather doesn't often require their use. Aside from the Maine House bedrooms, there is a one-bedroom guest suite that is beautifully decorated and has an extremely comfortable king bed as well as a pull-out sofa in the living room. There is a 9 seat movie theater with exceptionally comfortable reclining chairs. There is an outdoor ping pong patio, indoor billiard room and gym, outdoor fireplaces in several locations... honestly, this property is virtually perfection. The only thing I'd change is the WiFi signal. It's available in a few spots in the house, but not across the entire property. That said, it was rather nice putting the phone/iPad down for the better part of every day. There are so many places to relax and have fun on the property that it was hard to venture beyond the beautiful wrought iron gates. However, there are many great restaurant choices right in Montecito. This is a special place and the owners are beyond accommodating. I could not recommend it more highly."
