ROMANTIC, PRIVATE, STAND-ALONE COTTAGE

Santa Barbara Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2

You walk through a hand-crafted gate, down a long stone path, through an apple arbor, past a koi pond, through a gate and arrive at your own private deck shaded by oak trees and comfortable with a hammock, dining area & lounge. Apricots, grapes, figs and plums (in season) all within reach. You open French doors, enter the cottage where you first see the Queen-sized bed under stained-glass windows that looks out into a succulent garden. Panning the room, you take in the comfy couch which faces paned windows looking out onto the garden, a flat-screen TV and art created by friends of ours. You tuck your belongings away in the walk-in closet and go pour yourself a glass of wine in the fully equipped kitchen with honed black granite counter tops and handmade beach stone drawer pulls. With music playing on the stereo, you draw yourself a bath in the claw-foot tub, or head out onto the deck and relax in the hammock, or lounge, or you cuddle up in bed and admire the open, zen-like space.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5
We could not have picked a better place to stay! After much time spent looking for a place online, we finally came across this one and I'm so glad we did. The pictures do not do it justice. It is much bigger in size then it looks online and the surrounding trees and overall ambiance cannot be expressed in the photos. It is very secluded and quiet and if we had more time, we would have been happy spending the whole day on the private porch, in the hammock. The vibe feels as though you might be far away in the mountains, but you're actually only a few blocks from State St. and close everything else we wanted to do in town. David and Saral are wonderful and very welcoming. They offered all the advice we needed on where to go and what to do. My only regret is not staying for a longer period of time. I plan to go back again soon!

Paradise Found!!!

  • 5 of 5
David's place is magical and for me it was also inspiring. You are completely surrounded by beauty and tranquility. My husband and I stayed for 10 days with our little dog. We enjoyed the property so much we didn't even want to eat out that much. It was very romantic, especially the cozy tucked away bed. In the evening the smell of lavender wafted through the open windows. It was truly a paradise. While it felt like we were far away from it all, Whole Foods and Trader Joe's were just 5 minutes away. The beach is a quick drive. Talk about private. We spent most of our time at the beach between Hendry's and 1000 Steps. Don't know the name but it has many more stairs than 1000 stairs. On weekdays we saw a handful of people usually with their dogs. Our most magical night was when we parked at Hendry's and took wine and cheese with us and walked about a 1/4 mile south. We ate, drank and watched the sunset. Our favorite restaurant Jane has the best seafood stew with coconut milk I've ever eaten. It's elegant but very affordable. We also really enjoyed hanging out in the Funk Zone drinking wine. The whole city is dog friendly too. We will definitely be back!

Private slice of heaven and absolute delight

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Sycamore Cottage for 5 nights in June and it was perfect for our first trip to Santa Barbara. The pictures of the cottage do not do it justice-- its intimate and cozy with everything you could ever need. The outdoor space was a highlight for us as it felt very private. David, the owner, could not have been more accommodating. He let us borrow his grill for cooking, was always available if we needed anything, and was a wonderful resource for great restaurants and attractions in the area. His taste is impeccable and we were able to hit many of his recommendations during our stay. A short drive to town, the beach, and wineries--the location cannot be beat.

Upon arrival, the cottage was extremely clean and was very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you could need if you like to cook.

We could not have asked for a lovelier place to stay. We highly recommend Sycamore Cottage to anyone looking for an affordable place near Santa Barbara.

Beautiful Garden Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a three night stay at the Sycamore Cottage and are already looking forward to our next visit. Sleeping with the windows open, listening to birds, smelling lavender in the garden above; the Sycamore Cottage makes you want to change your lifestyle to live as easy and simple as you do while you're here. The cottage is very private, but the owner in the house above is sweet and helpful if you need him. The proximity to the beach/downtown/hiking is perfect. Have a beautiful stay.

Adorable, romantic cottage in the middle of everything

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Sycamore Cottage to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. The place is as described in the description. David is so accomodating and personable. He made himself available to us, provided restaurant suggestions while also respecting our privacy. The cottage is warm, personable, clean and comfortable. The small touches make your stay interesting. Upon arrival there was a bottle of local chardonnay and chocolates which my husband proceeded to devour. It was nice to enjoy the beautiful outdoor space with a book and glass of chardonnay! The cottage has beautiful touches that allow you to enjoy the secluded, natural setting that it is in. There are windows in the ceiling that can be opened, so that you can enjoy the cool night air. You feel as if you are in the middle of the woods somewhere, but you are close to everything. This stay was just what we needed, time alone, away from the everyday demands. Thank you David for being such a great host!

Great Find!

  • 5 of 5
We were traveling to Santa Barbara for a wedding and wanted to take our dog with us. We lucked upon this cottage, tucked back behind a garden, and just a perfect oasis for a long weekend. It has everything needed for a relaxed weekend - including a stocked kitchen and good wifi. The porch has a hammock and picnic table that were perfect for an afternoon of reading. While not on the beach, the location was convenient, with the beach and all wedding-related activities just minutes away. David was helpful in directing us around the area and a wonderful host. We look forward to returning on a weekend when we are able to better explore all that Santa Barbara has to offer!

Car: recommended

A CONFUSING NOTE -- the marker doesn't actually point to the cottage, it points to our mailbox which is more than 1/10th of a mile away from the cottage. And to further confuse things, the lane that our home is on is unnamed and not on the map, but if you draw an imaginary line from the mailbox, perfectly perpendicular to Hope Avenue, all the way to the blue line (which is the creek below the cottage) that's where the cottage sits. Our home is slightly above it, about 150 feet away.
