Steps From East Beach: 2 Bedroom Santa Barbara cottage great views/private yard

Santa Barbara cottage

2 bedrooms / 1 bathroom / sleeps 5

“Absolutely Perfect” If anything this was better than advertised. We had the opportunity to stay in both cottages as the owners worked with us to squeeze us in. Both cottages are wonderful. Preferred back only because of the fenced in yard that was perfect for our puppy. Great location within walking distances to beach, park, beach restaurant and small grocery store. We like to walk so found it didn't take long to get to the pier or state street where all the restaurant and shops are. Will definitely return. The owners were wonderful and by the end of our stay felt like we had been given the opportunity to stay in 'a friends' house. As we had a car full it was great not to have to worry about beach gear, umbrellas, etc - they were all available to use.

“Heart of Santa Barbara” This is our second time renting this charming home. Wendy is so helpful and quickly responded to our phone call. The house is truly in the heart of Santa Barbara... Minutes from the beach, state street and restaurants. We felt at home in this Craftmans Style house with its old wood floors, and vintage windows and doors. We will be back and highly recommend.

Secret Garden Hideaway- Walk to Town, SB Mission

Santa Barbara house

3 bedrooms / 3 bathrooms / sleeps 9

“Luxury getaway in comfortable home” We had a wonderful second stay here. It is the only holiday rental we have ever revisited, and will certainly return. It may not be the cheapest option, but still good value bearing in mind the high spec fittings, we'll kept garden and great location. Wendy has always been extremely efficient, and friendly. Santa Barbara itself is a great location, good shops and some great national parks and lakes a short drive away. Although we are just a couple, families would have loads of living space, in the huge living room. This is a true home from home and would thoroughly recommend a stay here. Jason and Ros ( U.K.)

“Awesome!” We stayed in Scott and Grace's delightful apartment for a week in January this year. The place was spotlessly clean. The location was fantastic--close enough to restaurants and recreational outdoor areas. We walked to and around the Mission and enjoyed having access to restaurants (from coffee shops with delicious pastries and fresh squeezed juice to Thai and Mexican food). We loved the small details (fresh fruit in the room upon arrival, fancy toiletries in the bathroom). Scott and Grace were super easy going, very knowledgeable of the area, and helpful in every way they could think of to make our stay a fun and memorable one. I would definitely recommend this stay with all of my friends!

About Montecito

The small town of Montecito lies on a breathtaking stretch of California's central coast on the outskirts of Santa Barbara. The winding coastal roads and beautiful scenic overlooks here give way to inland farms and vineyards, Spanish inspired ranches, and the kind of sagebrush countryside that makes for an unforgettable vacation destination.

Come to Montecito to visit the old Spanish missions built by early settlers, some of which are now museums. Explore the vistas of Romero Canyon and the Santa Ynez valley. Take a sea kayaking eco-tour along the coast or visit the local zoo or botanical garden to learn more about the native plant and animal life in this area.

After the sun goes down, head into town to experience the world-class restaurants of the central coast and taste the offerings of some of the richest and most diverse farmland in the country. Some of the oldest and most established organic farms in central California are located right here, and these farms supply the kitchens of Montecito's award winning chefs.

Here are a few additional suggestions for your visit:

  • Explore the canyons: Hike the Hot Springs Trail to a majestic Santa Barbara overlook, go horseback riding or take a bike ride through Montecito's Romero Canyon.
  • Go shopping: Stroll along the charming and elegant Coast Village Road, considered one of the best shopping districts in Montecito.
  • Take a culinary and winery tour: A winery tour is a wonderful way to experience the true beauty and rolling vineyards of the Monterey Peninsula and the California countryside.
  • Experience live music: Enjoy live music and other entertainment in Alameda and Chase Palm Park in Santa Barbara.
  • Meet the ostriches: Visit the popular Ostrich Land in nearby Buellton and have face-to-face encounters with friendly ostriches and emus.
  • Visit the museums: There are several great places in Montecito to learn about local history. Start with the Carriage and Western Art Museum.

Like most of southern California, Montecito is beautiful all year round and draws visitors from all over the world. But as popular as it is, it's still always easy to find a perfect vacation rental here. Rent a luxury condo downtown close the restaurants, live music and nightlife or find an elegant beach house with beautiful views of the ocean. While you're visiting Montecito, consider taking a short trip south to San Diego or head north to San Francisco.

Montecito Secluded Serene Retreat
Secluded and quiet

In a quiet neighborhood with its own private entry and living area. Extensive decks allow for finding a sunny spot any time of the day. A path leads one along the creek bed for a short 75 yards. The rooms are well appointed with beautiful furniture and tasteful appointments. Fresh roses and full bloom orchids awaited our pleasure. Hosts were very helpful sending us directions so we could find our apt. and get settled by ourselves. Definitely a winner!see more
