This quaint, classic 1930's cottage is located in the heart of Montecito. The owners just finished a complete remodel of the entire home (Summer 2013). Care was taken to maintain the traditional cottage feel, while upgrading all the important features. Creative touches add a bit of contemporary flair. Everything about this home sparkles with all new furnishings, great lighting, and plenty of doors leading to the lovely gardens surrounding the home.
The Living Room is airy and inviting. It boasts a fireplace, hardwood floors and flat screen TV.
The Dining Room and Kitchen share one large space, with plenty of light streaming in from more doors and windows. The Dining Room table is traditional pine, with bright red contemporary chairs adding a sassy punch of color against a neutral palette.
The Kitchen has been completely equipped with all the necessary accoutrements needed for the chef in the group. Other handy features include a second prep sink, great small appliance selections, and front loading laundry system close-by. Additional seating at the large central island adds more casual options for breakfast, lunch, or afternoon coffee break. A mounted flat screen TV keeps guests in touch with world events, or entertains the younger guest with Saturday cartoons during the morning cereal ritual!
The Master Bedroom with king-size bed faces the front yard, where a manicured garden creates a serene backdrop to this tranquil room. A second Master Suite with queen-size bed also offers a full bathroom that can also be cleverly accessed through a second door to the Kitchen. The third Bedroom with 2 twin beds is colorful and charming. A hall Bathroom has a shower and bathtub combination.
Outdoors, the backyard patio offers everything needed to round out a relaxing vacation with barbecue, brand new spa, and teak dining table. With the beach a short walk away, the outdoor shower is a very convenient feature to rinse off the sand from a day at the beach.
Location is everything, and Montecito Cottage is poised in a quiet neighborhood close to shops, restaurants and the beach. A 10 minute walk will find guests at picturesque Butterfly Beach, near the world renowned Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel. In the opposite direction, a 5 minute walk will find guests arriving on Coast Village Road in the Lower Village. Upscale boutiques, fine dining and great coffee shops are just a few enticements sure to coax curious guests to wander and explore. If you are fortunate to be here on a Friday, the Farmers Market takes to the streets with colorful and fresh local bounty.
With traditional architectural features and eclectic creative flair, Montecito Cottage is a clever and cozy retreat to relax and unwind, offering not only an ideal location, but everything one would expect in a luxury vacation rental. Whether a busy professional traveler seeking quiet on a working vacation, or a family seeking fun in the sun, Montecito Cottage is the perfect retreat for every traveler. Come and enjoy!
