Our Guest House is at the end of a cul de sac on a one acre paradise with beautifully designed gardens in Montecito. We are less than a mile to the ocean, close to both upper and lower Mont villages hiking trails and 10 min. to Santa Barbara.

The space

Our Mission style cottage is truly unique. Located 3/4 of a mile from the ocean, the 700 square foot cottage has a lovely living room with gas/wood burning fireplace, spacious full kitchen, cozy bedroom and full bath. Access to shopping, restaurants, the beach and hiking trails make this the perfect semi-rural getaway. The cottage has all the modern amenities including a fully equipped kitchen, flat screen TV, DVD,wi-fi, cd player. There is a large patio off of the living room french doors which overlooks the garden and lawn. On the patio there is a relaxing hammock, table and chairs and bbq.

Guest access

Guests have access to entire cottage and patio. There is also a ping pong table on a second patio that you are welcome to enjoy.

Interaction with guests

We live in the main house on the 1 acre property. You will have complete privacy but we are also available to share local favorite spots, restaurants, etc. We both have lived in the area over 30 years and are a wealth of information.

Other things to note

Originally built as an artist studio/guest house, there are lots of beautiful touches.

Vicky and Gary's place is eminently peaceful, nestled in among the mountains, ocean and, Milky Way.. A zen hacienda a 'stone's throw' from any number of natural and urban adventures.

Everything about this cottage is perfect! The space is clean and so charmingly decorated, and Vicky and her husband are friendly and warm hosts who have thought of every detail (including a welcome book with great recommendations). We spent lots of time on the hammock and patio snapping photos of sunsets and enjoying dining al fresco. Its a short drive to the Four Seasons and upper village of Montecito and centrally located for trips to Santa Barbara and the area's wineries. I highly recommend this cottage and would definitely stay again!

Vicky's place is lovely in a perfect location. Very private and quiet, will definitely be back next time I am in Santa Barbara. Vicky also made herself available by text, and left us a lovely gift basket upon arrival with some great baked goods. Thank you!

Such a lovely experience! My 2 girlfriends and I were in town for a wedding and like with many weddings, you have to go to so many events prior to the actual ceremony. Vicky was super accommodating and even left us some fresh juice for the morning after. So thoughtful! Just sitting with my friends and having a glass of wine on Vicky's patio was one of my favorite memories from the whole weekend. Highly recommended!

We found this cottage to be quiet, attractive, well equipped, stocked and in excellent condition; the surrounds are lovely - lots of trees. It's a short walk to some restaurants/ shops and in easy reach of Santa Barbara and the beach. Vicky was very helpful and friendly; and we felt that the cottage showed thought and consideration for those staying there.
