CAPTAIN'S COTTAGE – STUNNING OCEAN VIEWS, CLOSE TO THE BEACH

Summerland House Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 bedroom/ 3 bath

The Captain’s Cottage is an irresistible 3 bedroom / 3 bath getaway overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands in Summerland. On the edge of Santa Barbara and Montecito, Summerland has a delightful village atmosphere with unique shops, a local winery, several restaurants and coffee shops. The cottage offers an ideal accommodation for those seeking privacy and tranquility.

The 2,400 square foot home has been beautifully furnished in a nautical theme, with careful attention to every detail. Enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the one of three decks overlooking the ocean. Enjoy an armchair view of the ever-changing ocean panorama with sea breezes to keep you cool on warm, balmy days. Or curl up with a book in front of one of the three fireplaces located throughout the home. Managed by Santa Barbara Cottages.

The home is organized around three living areas connected through a stunning oak spiral staircase. At the top is a spacious master bedroom suite with a king-size bed and beautiful master bath with Jacuzzi tub and stand alone shower, and walk in closet. A separate seating area and freestanding fireplace complete this self-contained living area. Off the suite is the “Wheelhouse”, a private deck offering stunning views of the ocean.

The second level of the home includes a kitchen, dining area, office and living room with a beautiful two-story rock fireplace as well as a second bedroom with a queen size bed and second bath. This level of the home includes another spacious deck overlooking the ocean, as well as a deck on the back of the house which faces a quiet park-like setting with many trees and open space.

On the entry level of the home is another bedroom suite complete with a queen-size bed, private bath and sitting area complete with a separate entertainment system.

The Captain’s Cottage offers all the amenities you would expect in a 5-star hotel yet is a world away from a bustling hotel atmosphere. The home offers wireless high-speed Internet, 4 TVs with cable, DVD player, Bose IPod base, luxurious linens and towels, gas bar-b-que, extraordinary furnishings and beautiful wood floors. The peaceful garden offers additional seating areas for picnics and barbecues. The cottage is just a short walk to the beach along a trail that meanders by the property down to the ocean. Summerland beach and adjacent Lookout Park is world renowned as one of the country’s premier beaches.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a great stay here for our cousin's wedding! The Cottage was an amazing home and a great base for all the activities of the week. We couldn't have imagined anything more perfect. Betsy and family from Minnesota

This is an outstanding property!

  • 5 of 5
Our Family of 5 stayed in the Captains Cottage for two weeks in July 2009. The transaction and booking went flawlessly and everything was described 100% accurate. Upon our late arrival we found the house fully stocked with enough food and goodies to allow for a casual first day before visiting the market. The owners even supplied a welcome basket and fresh cut flowers along with fresh home baked goods upon our arrival. The house is newly renovated, furnished, extremely clean and well laid out with lots of privacy consisting of a bed room and private bath on every level. They have lovely gardens and a stunning lemon tree right off the deck loaded with fresh lemons. This house is unbelievable with every possible amenity and all the comforts of home. The beds were extremely comfortable and the house location was both private and quiet. We found our hosts Francesca and John to be extremely helpful and an absolute pleasure. They were available at all times and a wealth of information regarding must see places to visit. We have rented several properties but this property was the best by far. We would definitely return and rent this home again.
Francesca and John, thanks so much for sharing your lovely home with us. See you next year.

This charming home was perfect for our vacation with 3 teenage children. Everyting feels new and well maintained, with lovely sitting areas throughout. Well located for an easy drive to Santa Barbara and nearby beaches. The owners welcomed us with kitchen provisions and flowers throughout. We will be back!!

Non-stop smiles from the moment we saw the house!

  • 5 of 5
The Captain's Cottage is everything described and then some. The property itself is beautiful and lush with flowers and plants everywhere. So relaxing and peaceful.
Captain's Cottage welcomes you from the inside out. This property is very well maintained, and thoughtfully decorated. The many windows and decks allow you to enjoy the soft ocean breeze no matter where you are.
The home is spotlessly clean, from linens to towels to bathrooms. The kitchen is outfitted with everything you could need for a brief or prolonged stay! The barbecue is conveniently located off the kitchen on a patio/deck where you can soak up the ocean view while preparing your meal.
Francesca is a gracious and thoughtful host. Her attention to detail includes a refrigerator stocked with champagne, orange juice, water, fruit, milk and even juice packs for the kids! My husband was thrilled to discover one of his favorite brands of beer after the long ride from our home! There was even a welcome basket full of treats and a dish of freshly baked brownies.
Beside each bed is a small dish of bite sized candy, which adds another touch of thoughtfulness.
Waking up every morning to the ocean view from the master suite was an incredible way to start the day. I highly recommend it!
As a rule, we are out and about a lot when we vacation, but the comfort of Captain's Cottage made it a pleasure to just hang out and relax right there.
We have rented other homes in the area and stayed at higher end hotels in Santa Barbara, but this was by far the best experience. From the first contact with Francesca to the last, everything was smooth and easy.
I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a perfect getaway home.My only concern is that, if too many people find out about it, we'll have trouble renting it again! Which we definitely intend to do.
Thanks Francesca!

Captains Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had a wondeful week at The Captains Cottage. It was a perfect location for sightseeing. We had day trips to the Reagan Library, San Simeon, Solvang as well as Wine Country and downtown Santa Barbara. The cottage had everything one could want. It is beautifully decorated in a beach theme. We stayed with 2 other couples and everyone had their own bath and bedroom on their own floor or the home. We were greeted with homemade treats and basket of goodies. Nice touch.. Couldn't ask for more

Great place (not great for larger dogs)

  • 4 of 5
We had a very nice stay here. The house isn't that close to the beach, but it's up on a hill and has a great view of the ocean from most rooms. It was clean and had a lot of warm touches including fresh-baked brownies on the counter, milk in the fridge and fresh flowers in the bathrooms. The house has a lot of great deck and outdoor garden space as well. Our only complaint is that it's not ideal for dogs; the only way to get between the three levels of the house is a slippery open spiral staircase. The only way out of the house is through the lower level (which is not the level of the main living area) so your dog will need to navigate the staircase in order to get in and out of the house. We ended up having to carry our 50lb shepherd mix up and down the stairs several times a day, because she was too scared to walk on the stairs. There is construction in the works to make the second level (main living area) also accessible to outside; hopefully this will be finished soon so that pets won't have to go up and down the spiral staircase. Otherwise we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend the place.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time give us your feedback. I was delighted to hear that you enjoyed the house and your visit.

We are less than a 1/3 mile to the beach, which is a lovely walk. However, if you don't like to walk, our beach is one of the few with free parking and a small park for additional picnicing.

Our beautiful ocean views are due in part because we sit on a hillside and we are a 3-story house. Our spiral staircase is featured in our pictures and for most people they are perfectly no problem. However, for some, including small children or those with physical impairments, we do recommend you consider our other cottages that are primarily one-level.

Many thanks for your visit and review.
