  • 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."

  • Amazing house, definitely stay here!

    "We stayed at this beautiful house for two months and liked it so much, we're going back for another four months in 2017. The photos and description are very accurate - if anything, they undersell the house. It's a gorgeous place to stay. Every detail has been thought of and every room is very comfortable. We love to cook and the kitchen is perfect for cooking up large meals, with all pots/pans/utensils you could ever need provided. The house is well maintained and the owner is very responsive if you have any issues. We didn't have any problems during our stay, but he responded immediately via all forms of communication (email, text, etc) whenever we had a question. I have no doubt that if an issue did arise, he would take care of it quickly and professionally. The location is awesome - in walking distance to the Mission, Cottage Hospital, and Oak Park. A quick drive (or long walk) to downtown. There's always plenty of street parking. Truly no complaints and as I mentioned, we already booked another long-term stay here because the house was so perfect for our family. I highly recommend it!"

  • Fabulous family property!

    "We stayed at this property with our 3 kids (twins aged 6 and 18 month old) and absolutely loved it. The property is even better than it looks on the site. The kids were outside constantly enjoying the zipline, trampoline, tree fort and pool + s'mores every night. We ate almost all our meals outside at the huge dining table. The house is an easy drive to downtown Santa Barbara, beaches, the zoo, and local parks. We hope to return one day soon!"

  • A lovely downtown location

    "We enjoyed our week long stay at El Zapato very much. It was a pleasure to see and live in a unique Jeff Shelton house as we have long admired his architecture from the streets of Santa Barbara!! Our one bedroom apartment was adequate for the two of us and had the weather been warm we would have truly enjoyed the spacious outdoor area! The location is perfect and within walking distance of so many Santa Barbara highlights. Carla was a most gracious host and we appreciated her guidance regarding film festival protocol. Thank you so much."
