Guestbook comments from the owner
We are repeat guests from Vienna, Austria- we stayed almost a month this time from October 29 - November 21, 2013. Our son married a California girl in May and we were out here then too!



We consider this place our second home. When it is cold and dark in Vienna we look forward to our special place in Montecito, Ca. We have made so many friends. Now, our son and daughter-in-law are moving to Turkey! But we still hope to come back to our beautiful garden again.

We are a couple who love the area and love to share our special garden apartment with guests. Our friendly little dog will be happy to show you around! We live in the same house but we have a separate entrance and we rarely run into the occupants of the Secret Garden apartment! Of course, we love to recommend restaurants and special places to explore..

Peer and Lisa purchased this apartment in 2000

This location is so close to everything, if you live in LA you can just take the train up and never have to drive. in our opinion, Montecito is the best place to be in this whole area, and we have lived in all parts of Santa Barbara. We call it the Carmel and La Jolla of California! It is so beautiful here. New!!! Please ask about our 2 bedroom 1 bath with art studio! Same location!

There are too many to list! To have a glass of wine and play boulle in the back yard is right out of 'A Year In Provence'. In fact, it feels very European with the furnishings and location. One of the best kept secrets is the tunnel to the beach, right down the street. It's hard to believe you are really in the heart of Montecito when you are surrounded by birdsong, owls hooting, and visually no houses to be seen because of the trees and bushes. Still, the gardener makes sure there is plenty of light to keep all the flowers and the two lemon trees healthy! Pick a fresh lemon for that lemon-drop martini- shaker and glasses provided!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for 4 days, was perfect. Walking distance to Stores, Starbucks, and to Scoops for some great Gelato. Close to the beach, walking distance too. Loved relaxing on the lounger in back yard. Full kitchen allowed us to cook in a few meals. You can stay here for less than a hotel, with more privacy. We visit Santa Barbara often and would stay here again! Kim

Very Charming, Great Location, Great Value!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 (2 adults, a 7 and 11 year old) stayed at the Secret Garden for a week in July. As another reviewer stated, it was more charming than the pictures conveyed which was a pleasant surprise! The location is ideal as we walked to the beach, grocery store, good restaurants, coffee shops, high end shopping and ice cream shop. Downtown Santa Barbara is right around the corner. The flat is small so the patio and garden were a wonderful extension to the living space (however, the kitchen was larger than expected) and my kids loved playing in the garden which inspired some great imaginary adventure play! The décor is lovely. We will return- not only was the stay wonderful, we enjoyed working with Lisa and Peer. Thanks!

Wonderful place loaded with charm

  • 5 of 5
This place was far more charming in person than you could tell from the pictures. The location was easy to get to and a quick walk to both the beach and downtown Montecito. Sitting outside in the garden was relaxing and quiet. I particularly appreciated how easy Lisa was to work with and that my security deposit had been returned before we even got home later that day.

Great find!

  • 5 of 5
Charming, clean, and comfortable place to stay! Great price and definitely recommend over a hotel. Owners are easy to contact and helpful with info, yet give you your space. Garden is gorgeous! There is a little study/nook that fit a pack n play perfectly for our little one. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Beautiful Montecito apartment

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a last minute weekend getaway with our 4yr and 8mo old daughters. The property was very quiet and beautifully landscaped. Our adventurous 4yr old enjoyed exploring the backyard and walking to the beach. Apartment was clean and comfortable. Peer and Lisa were so nice and welcoming, even going out of their way late one night to replace a TV not working. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend this to others.

A Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The Montecito Secret Garden was like a hidden treasure for us! We were in Santa Barbara for a long weekend to visit our son in college, and never imagined that our accommodations would be so special! Lisa & Peer were extremely helpful during the booking process and upon arrival, but thereafter we felt as if we had the gardens all to ourselves. The cottage is in a beautiful neighborhood, and is a pleasant walk from downtown Montecito and the beach.

We can't add much more than the other reviewers have, except to say that we will most definitely be back!
