Montecito House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
Beautifully decorated 4BR/4BA hilltop home in Montecito with breath-taking ocean, island and mountain views from all main rooms, the terrace and the infinity-edge pool and spa. You will enjoy privacy and seclusion, yet be minutes from the beach, boating, golf and shopping.
Decorated in rich golds and russets, with Saltillo tile and Brazilian cherry floors and fine Oriental rugs, our home is reminiscent of those in the Tuscan countryside. The living and dining rooms feature arched windows and French doors leading to the terrace. The kitchen is a gourmet's dream with rich wood cabinetry, granite countertops and top-of-the-line appliances. The adjacent family room has a gas fireplace, large-screen TV in a French walnut armoire, a cozy eating area and French doors to the terrace.
Up an open curved staircase, the spacious master suite features a private ocean view terrace with nighttime views of harbor lights. There is a marble bath with soaking tub, an over-sized glass-enclosed shower and double vanity.
Three other spacious main-floor bedrooms each have ensuite baths. Two are furnished with hand-painted European king beds and antique chests or armoires. The third has an antique iron queen bed plus a trundle daybed that sleeps an additional two persons. All have top-of-the-line linens and fluffy down duvets.
Colorful gardens and lawn surround the pool and flagstone terrace. You can pick your own avocados and limes and enjoy outdoor dining on a tree-shaded deck.
You may never want to leave your lounge chair by the infinity-edge pool with its spectacular ocean and island views, but some of the areas best scenic hiking trails are right out the door. Walk to the San Ysidro Ranch for lunch, shop the upper and lower villages, browse the antique shops of Summerland, golf or bike, soak up the sun on a nearby beach, or explore historical Santa Barbara and the wineries of the Santa Ynez Valley -- all are minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The Holidays worked well for us and the family loves being there. We would like to lease Mariposa again next year for the holidays, and leave the door open for a longer term.
