Santa Barbara House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Unique property with main house and cottage which both open onto lush outdoor space offering both privacy and intimacy. Lush terraced gardens include Weber outdoor grill,gas firepit, a kitchen center with sink,and Mexican tiled counter tops to facilitate outdoor meals. The outdoor shower is intertwined with jasmine, heirloom roses, and dahlias that have been maturing for over 40 years. Elegant plantings with orange, lemon, grapefruit, avocado, banana, and cherimoya trees cascade three levels from the house to adjacent cottage.

The newly renovated main house is both airy and luminous, with Brazilian Koa floors and recessed lighting throughout. The main house features three bedrooms with 400 count thread sheets, and tasteful decor.Two bedrooms also have views and access to gardens with 6’ sliders and patios. A top of the line, fully equipped kitchen includes granite counter tops with stainless steel appliances and Bosch dishwasher and center aisle cook top with separate convection oven and microwave. The master bath includes travertine marble tiling throughout with double sinks, and spacious shower area. The open floor plan boasts a step down living room with Colorado stone fireplace, exotic wood mantle and flat screen television.

The charming two bedroom guest cottage,'formally a historic dance studio' has two levels with floor to ceiling divided light windows. A retro-style kitchen contains an Overland 1930’s stove, breakfast bar, and birch dining table. The king bedroom, and living room both have a bright, airy ambiance that brings the outdoors in with glass sliders out to bottom level of terraced patio. A queen bed is located in the second bedroom. A separate office and laundry area bridge the gap between the two units.

This tropical oasis is situated 1 ½ miles to East Beach, the Santa Barbara Children’s Zoo, Stern’s Wharf, and downtown Santa Barbara. Within walking distance to the Municipal tennis courts and Montecito golf course. Montecito is ¼ mile down the road with unique boutiques and restaurants.

Lush Setting

  • 5 of 5
My extended family and I needed a brief respite from the heat and hectic pace of our Southern California routine and this home was the perfect solution. We were close to many different attractions, yet far enough away from the crowds to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the green oasis in the home's backyard. The teens loved the outdoor shower! The only drawback for us was the "cottage" bathroom which was upstairs from the bedrooms. A little tricky for middle of the night visits.

Great back patio!

  • 5 of 5
Our college friends got together for a wedding that weekend, and this was a great house for all right of us! I wish that all of the bedrooms/bathrooms had been more "fair" for all of the adults to choose from, but all in all we had a great time at the house. Roger was great to work with and was a great communicator! Thanks!

Beautiful, clean, and serene property! Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5
We visited Santa Barbara for a weekend getaway reunion and could not have chosen a better place to stay. The house and property is very well maintained, clean, and comfortable. We ate every meal outside on the patio just so we could enjoy the gorgeous backyard landscaping! It is minutes from the beach and downtown SB which makes the location ideal, but it is nestled away just enough to have a relaxing and private space. We drove to the beach during the day and took uber/lyft/cabs in the evening to enjoy the state street night life (about a 8 minute ride). The owner was helpful and responsive to our questions. I would highly recommend this property! Thank you for providing an amazing space for an unforgettable weekend with friends and family. We hope to return for another reunion in the future.

Excellent rental property

Beautiful property...the pictures don't do it justice. Had a great weekend in Santa Barabara, although we didn't leave the house as much as intended. It was wonderful to relax in the back yard and enjoy the property. Highly recommended.

A beautiful property in a great location

  • 5 of 5
We visited Mary's Garden for a ladies getaway. As others have noted, the landscaping is beautiful and the house is very comfortable. Everyone in our group commented on how comfortable their bed was. The two items I would note was that the house, and especially the cottage, were quite musty...not sure how long the house had been closed up prior to our arrival, but even after opening every window to air things out, it never quite went away. The second is that renters should be sure to note that the half-bath is considered to be the outdoor shower. This item is noted in the details of the listing, but I missed that and was surprised to be "short" a toilet and sink when we arrived. The owner was very accessible for communication both before and during our stay...as for nearby restaurants, if you like Mexican food both Cava and Los Arroyos in Montecito are delish, and are less than 3 miles from the house.

Owner's Response: I really appreciate my guests and their reviews. Never in the 13 years
of owning Mary's Garden have I had any issues with musty odors arise.
Never the less,I have instructed my staff to leave interior windows open
between guest rentals.
