  • Lovely

    "When you are down on the floor doing yoga, you really know if a place is clean! Jill's cottage was clean, warm and welcoming. A delight!"

  • Fabulous

    "We loved the house. The location was perfect for walking down to the beach or taking the underground tunnel into town. We loved all the different outside sitting areas and the grounds are beautifully maintained."

  • Sweet, beautifully maintained and updated cotage.

    "Quiet, updated, and well equipped. Beautiful kitchen. Private. Two issues nut not major at all: 1. Pebbles on the crushed granite walks/driveway are difficult to deal with as constantly needing to take one's shoes off at the entry is not very practical. 2. The furnishings in the living area are sparse, dated, and uncomfortable. Oh and 3 . Cable service is the bare minimum. No ESPN - who has a lock on most sports these day and is basically a pretty basic channel - was beyond disappointing during bowl games, etc. these are the reasons for the 4 stars. However, those being noted, I would most definitely recommend the property but also recommend the leasing agents forewarn potential clients about these issues. Oh and 4. There is no no working fireplace due to the drought, which is completely understandable, however the the house was really cold when any door was closed for privacy as there is no central heating."

  • Private, Natural Oasis in Montecito Hills

    "My husband and I stayed almost a week at this property and it was just perfect for us. We had some reservations about staying in the guest house of a larger home (we like privacy!), but we found we had all the privacy we needed because of the way they have constructed it. We ran into Jill, the owner, one time and had a quick introduction and chat and that was the last we came into contact. As for the unit, tall french doors lead to a small, landscaped stone courtyard with a wonderfully soothing water feature. We left at least one door open quite often as we enjoyed the sound and the frequent hummingbirds. Kitchen is new, with soft closing doors, quartz counters and a great gas range. View of the mountain range from the under mounted sink. Nice full size washer and dryer helped with beach towels, etc. Very comfortable sheets and linens on the king size bed, and I found the upstairs queen bed (in the loft) very cozy to read or nap. Two portable a/c units keep things cool, but we found we only used them in the afternoon heat. One of the best beaches in Santa Barbara is less than 10 minutes down the hill, along with great food and shopping. Just far enough to be away and just close enough to access everything!! Overall, despite a small amount of wear and tear ( a bit of wear to bathroom vanity, small tear to loft carpet, a touch up of paint in a few spots in the loft) we would stay here again in a heartbeat. It was an excellent choice in our price range and felt we sacrificed nothing in lieu of the expense of a fancy hotel. Thank you, Jill, for providing an upscale, affordable vacation option!! NOTES: the weather was quite mild (78 for a high) during our visit, you may need to run the a/c more frequently if you are visiting during a heat wave. If you like to take baths, bring a flat, plastic disc as a stopper as the mechanism for the tub is non functioning. If you like to do yoga or stretch, the laminate floors are pretty hard so bring a yoga mat."
