Charming one-room bungalow, semi-detached from main house with private entrance, picturesque patio, indoor gas fireplace, and abundant natural light. Outstanding location! Steps away from Montecito's Lower Village shops, restaurants, and convenient transportation into Santa Barbara. Short walk to beach and local resorts, convenient access from 101 freeway.

The space

Charming escape on property with mature trees and a private landscaped patio with fountain. Comfortable and appointed studio with one queen bed, one day bed, kitchenette, bath with walk-in shower, and gas fireplace. Wonderful natural light spills in from abundant windows on all sides of room and skylights. Vaulted beamed ceilings and wood floors add to spacious room feel. Satellite TV, high speed WiFi, and music device hookup support both entertaining and work friendly ambiance. Additional deck with cafe table where you can enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine after spending the day at the beach or seeing the sights.
We have beach towels, chairs, and umbrella available for your use; beach is only a few blocks walk away. Kitchenette is not equipped for major cooking but does include a mini fridge, microwave, toaster oven, all basic food prep materials. Keurig coffee machine is stocked with coffee, tea and a few essentials. The TV includes DirecTV service with HBO and NFL Sunday Ticket.

Guest access

You will have access to private patio, landscaping, and deck surrounding guest house. Deck is appointed with cafe table and chairs. To get to the guest house you will travel on pathways with a couple steps through the main property back yard. The driveway will be shared parking with one designated parking spot for guesthouse.

Interaction with guests

We live in the main house full time with our one year old. After personal check-in, you will always be greeted with a friendly wave and smile if we cross paths in the backyard. Beyond that we will follow your lead. We are happy to offer suggestions of local activities and eateries but also respect your privacy and will leave you be if that is your preference. If you have any special requests before or during your stay, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate.

Other things to note

We are very family friendly, but some features of the guesthouse may not be (the pond on the patio for example). Please message me with any questions regarding safety and suitability.

There is street noise as well as a construction project nearby durning the day, although it is quite peaceful at night.

The nightly rate includes a 12% TOT Tax that will be paid to Santa Barbara County.

Melissa's place was wonderful - even more lovely than the photographs. Location was great - very close to The Four Seasons and the water. Melissa was a great host, very rapid with responses and very pleasant to interact with. The facilities were clean, tastefully furnished, and comfortable. Highly recommended

Kevin is a fantastic host! Our room was very nice, clean and comfortable. Kevin has thought of pretty much anything one can need while staying at his place: Comfy/clean bed, luxurious bathroom, entertainment system, nice patio with fountain, mini kitchenette, heater/fan and on and on down to a yummy bag of granola bag for the lazy momets in need of a quick sweet fix. You're 2min walking distance to beautiful Montecito city center to nice restaurants, wine bars & a fantastic French bakery with amazing chocolate croissants & excellent espresso! Also walking distance to Four Seasons resort if you want to enjoy a nice drink in their lobby bar overlooking the ocean... Having that said the only thing that might be little inconvenient to some ppl would be the very proximity of the house to the freeway & another street, bringing in constant traffic noise. We managed to escape it by keeping the doors & windows closed or playing some music via his pre-arranged entertainment system… I highly recommend Kevin's place to any visitor so long as 100% quietness & tranquility is not your upmost priority.

Melissa and Kevin were terrific hosts who go the extra mile to extend as much hospitality and attend to as many details as possible to ensure a memorable stay. The smart, rustic furnishings and gas fireplace for those chilly romantic evenings, along with fresh, clean, updated and super comfortable accommodations made me feel like I was a resident in my own personal mini estate. Aside from outstanding walking accessibility to the beach (10 min) and to shopping and restaurants in the local village (5 min), the newly remodeled over-sized walk-in glass shower with views to the garden was my favorite. The best!

What a beautiful property! Secluded and quiet, yet nice to have Melissa and Kevin nearby for questions and help. They were such gracious hosts, so much that when my husband realized he forgot his cufflinks 2 hours before the wedding we were attending Kevin let him borrow his! Who does that!?! Want a special house, decorated beautifully, yet comfortable and relaxing? Want a gorgeous bathroom, beautiful garden and walking distance to the ocean and shopping and restaurants? Stay here. You'll fall in love.

What a great spot! Melissa and Kevin have clearly put some time and money into fixing up their back house, and it truly made for a quick home away from home during our stay. Great location within cloae walking distance to some great shops in Montecito. Thank you!
