About Claudio Pollero

In 1998 we purchased this unique and gorgeous Spanish house in Montecito, built in 1927. After extensive restoring and improvements but respecting the original concept and charm, and at the same time adding a touch of Estancia from Argentina, my wife Sabine and I feel that we created a very warm feeling home, for people to enjoy as their own while vacationing.

Why Claudio Pollero chose Montecito

We decided to purchase this property for many reasons, I'll name three that comes to mind first, we loved the Spanish style of the house, that is characteristic with Montecito, the quiet private lane the house is located at walking distance from the beautiful upper village and the private access to the most idyllic park in Montecito.

What makes this house unique

Peace of mind and tranquility.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Estancia for 6 glorious weeks. We enjoyed Christmas with my two daughters and their husbands. We loved every minute of the stay. The house suited us very well and the ability to open the doors to outdoor living was fabulous. The location is ideal and we felt as if we were locals spending many coffee and wine hours at Upper Village! The park behind the house was just one more plus to an already perfect setting.

The owners being so close was also great as they responded immediately to a few problems. We look forward to returning!

Enchanting place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at la Estancia for my son's UCSB graduation with our group of 3 generations and we had a wonderful time! the place is immaculate and beautiful! The grandparents kept on talking about how amazing this place is! The grounds are so beautiful with all the fresh flowers and fruit trees. The owners were very friendly and responded right away when we called them about a small glitch with the patio warmer. We loved sitting outside and enjoying the grounds. We definetely recommend this place and would love to come back again soon!

lovely Montecito cottage

  • 4 of 5

3 women friends enjoyed a 4 night stay at the Montecito Estancia. It was ideal for us, as we each had our own separate space and the location was perfect for seeing the Santa Barbara area. The property was very attractive, clean, and had all amenities needed. Plus the grounds were lovely.

One suggestion would be to provide better lighting especially at bedsides and in the smaller bathroom.

Stunningly gorgeous and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful three days at the Estancia with our three-generation family group. The house is absolutely superb and the grounds are amazing. We have rented many houses before for vacations and this one is truly superlative in terms of comfort, style, and location. Would love to return some day!

Prefect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Estancia for most of the month of January 2014 and had a wonderful time. Estancia is a charming 1920's Spanish Bungalow in an absolutely prefect location in Montecito just minutes from everything one would want to experience everything Santa Barbara has to offer, including the beach shopping restaurants, hiking, tennis. The home is situation on a beautiful walled in piece of property than gives you total privacy and solitude.

The owners are a lovely couple who we became very friendly with almost immediately and could not be more gracious and helpful. We plan on returning again and again because I seriously doubt we could find anything as good in the area for the price. I give the home and the overall experience 5 BIG STARS!!!

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

While planning a trip to Santa Barbra to celebrate a milestone birthday, my husband and I stumbled upon Sabine and Claudio’s Montecito Estancia online. From the images, the Estancia looked nice. However, upon arrival, we opened the gate and immediately discovered that the images, while helpful, did not present the whole, wonderful picture.

Montecito Estancia is beautiful , charming, picturesque—I really can’t find enough positive adjectives. The home is lovely and very well cared for, in addition to providing all the conveniences necessary for six adults, three of them 20-somethings, and a very discriminating dog, who immediately inspected the grounds and the house, plopped down by the fountain and gave a tail wag of approval.

There are gardens everywhere, and all are very private. The neighborhood is quiet, which suited us fine. Although everyone in California seems to jump into their cars for everything, we walked to the beach a few times—it is about 1 mile away. There are plenty of places to eat in Montecito and Santa Barbara, and we talked to long-time residents on the beach to get some excellent recommendations. But by far, the meals we enjoyed most where the ones we cooked in a very well outfitted kitchen and ate sitting under the heat lamp on one of the inviting patios while the sun was setting. We hiked into the mountains, rented bikes to tour Santa Barbara, watched sunsets on the beach. There are many options for outdoor activities, happy hours and socializing. There really is a lot to do in the area, and our biggest dilemma was choosing what to do, as Montecito Estancia was so inviting, we all were reluctant to leave for long periods.

The back of this fine property is connected through a private door, to one of the most beautiful, picture perfect, small park in Montecito, which allows tenants to have a direct access to this idyllic and secluded park, full of creeks & old grows, a tennis court and playground.

The home is just 1 mile from Miramar beach, and 1 1/2 mile from historic 5 Star Biltmore Hotel on Butterfly Beach, and 1 mile from prestigious San Ysidro Ranch, where JFK and Jackie honeymooned in the 50's. The lower village, at 1mile, offers more world class of everything. The city of Santa Barbara is located 4 miles north.

This beautiful Spanish gated property, built in 1927, is very special and is ideal for families. Stunning and elegant, ironwork, remote operated front gates, hand made by international artist Flavio Bisciotti, blend harmoniously with the 10 feet high hedge grows.

Other Activities: Boating, Kayaking, Shelling, Wildlife Viewing, Racquetball, Miniature golf
