“Not worth the money”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2013

The pictures make this property look a lot better than it is. It backs up to the freeway and is very dated as to bathrooms and the kitchen. The location is good though and we enjoyed the bikes. Outdoor space is pretty but not enough chairs for the size of the house and sauna is not appealing.

Response from the manager Thank you so much for your candid review of Montecito Village Retreat - The GOOD NEWS is that the owners will be doing a REMODEL OF THE KITCHEN AND ALL BATHROOM in January - February of 2014. The plans look wonderful and will completely change the Kitchen and Dining Room configuration. I personally completed a lengthy report and gave to the owner this month (Oct 2013) and they took care of many of the items I noted that needed attention ( new dishes, shower curtains, all new pillows, new duvets...more new things will be added during the remodel). We are very clear about the location being next to the freeway, but the garden in the back really is lovely and the freeway noise is not an issue when inside the home. The home is only a block to Coast Village Road, The Biltmore and Butterfly Beach so the location is ideal! The home does not have a sauna so that part of the review is incorrect. Maybe the reviewer meant to say spa...but even then, it is new and in very good condition, so not sure what they were referring to. We hope you, as a potential guest, will take a fresh look at Montecito Village Retreat starting in March!

In a word, yes it was disappointing. The pictures really sell the place for sure. However once there we found the kitchen dated, uncomfortable dining room chairs, only 2 lounge chairs on the patio and no other outdoor seating other than uncomfortable, cushion-less chairs around the outdoor table that did not even accommodate 6 guests, our arms were bitten by ants while in the hot tub, and last but certainly not least the property is right on 101 which even the bubbling of the little water fountain could not drown out. If I had known I would have taken photos but at the time we didn't feel the need to document our experience so you'll have to take my word for it.

Response from the manager Thank you for your feedback regarding Montecito Village Retreat. We take your comments seriously and appreciate any remarks that can assist our future guests in their decision making process. Your comments about the outdoor furnishings have been passed on to the owners for their consideration. Some of our past guests have appreciated the location of this home. It is a quick walk to the Lower Village of Montecito, Butterfly Beach and The Four Seasons. Some guests also like the mid-century architecture and eclectic decor. In addition, the home is affordably priced for the area. Our Guest Relations Staff is quick point out to potential guests the close proximity to Highway 101 and we state it on the profile page of the property on our website. Montecito Village Retreat is ideal for guests who want an affordable home near the beach, shops and restaurants--all are just a 5 minute walk away!

“Perfect location for our family gathering!”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2013

This is our third rental through Paradise Retreats and have loved each house! We gathered from across the country to celebrate my Mother's 90th Birthday. Montecito is dear to our hearts as our parents lived there for over 30 years. The set up was perfect for six adults and three children. We all loved being able to walk to the beach and the village. We grilled out almost every night and enjoyed the ping pong table and hot tub. The house was in perfect shape when we arrived and a minor maintenance problem was fixed within hours. We would rent this house again as it was perfect for our family.

“Great Family Vacation at Montecito Village Retreat”

Reviewed 6 Jun 2013

Montecito Village Retreat is in a great location -- a short walk from the beautiful beach. Meeting there with our children and grandchildren was a wonderful vacation spot. It was spacious, bright and cheerful. We really enjoyed the patio with the ping pong table and hot tub. Thank you for providing such a delightful retreat for our family vacation.

It was disppointing to see that the house backed onto the highway. There were bicycles available for use and they were in riding condition. The one bathroom door would not open on arrival but was soon opened up by the maintenance man but not fixed. The door did not lock for the time we were there and there were 3 couples in the house. The ensuite bathroom was not functionable enough to use properly. The shower head was too low and barely any water would came out of the sink tap. I had to use a different bathroom and this was not convienent at times. Although there was a significant cleaning fee of over $300.00, we left the house pretty much spotless, had the dish washer running and most towels washed. There was very little to do and I don't think the cleaning staff would be there longer than an hour. I personally would find it difficult to rent from this agency again. I would wonder if all conditions of a house would be described on their web site. I hope this is published and taken into consideration for future renters.

“Good location and service !”

“Lot;s of room for our 8 people”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2012

we had lot's of room and the house was very neat and clean. The patio was great for our young children to play in a safe area. We liked being close to the beaches and butterfly beach was a great place. The downtown area was nice to be with-in walking distance also.

“Great place for a family getaway”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2012

We had a great time in this house. There were 7 of us in total--and everybody had the perfect bedroom. The bedrooms were very nice. The bathrooms could use a little modernizing, but were fine. There's lots of hanging out room (2 living rooms!), dining room, and kitchen table, so everyone had room to spread out. 5 minute walk to Montecito restaurants, and 5-10 minute walk to the beach. It was beautiful and perfect.

“A wonderful retreat in a spectacular spot.”

Reviewed 19 Jan 2012

The Montecito Village Retreat help make our son's wedding even more special. The house was well kept, spacious and in a great location for all of the family activities. The bedrooms were beautiful and the beds very comfortable. We loved the morning sun in the dining area and the patio in the evening with the foothills and the stars. This retreat was a great house one I would recommend to anyone.


Reviewed 18 Jan 2012

The house was great and so was the location. The furnitures at the backyard were not so good. The spa was wonderful. The lights outside was not enough, very dark.
