About Dr. elle Bolt, D.C.

I am a Doctor of Chiropractic and I practiced in my solo office for 16 years. As I worked as a chiropractor I began purchasing houses and apartments. Many of them were fixers. I had fun refurbishing them! A few years ago I sold my Chiropractic business and now I manage my apartments and vacation rentals full time!

I grew up in Fresno, CA and then moved to Santa Barbara to attend college. I then moved to Los Angeles area to attend Chiropractic College. After graduating I returned to Santa Barbara! I couldn't stay away!! I now live in Montecito in the Guest House of the Sycamore Canyon Estate!!

Dr. elle Bolt, D.C. purchased this estate in 2005

Why Dr. elle Bolt, D.C. chose Montecito

When I was looking for my next property to buy, I knew I wanted to find one in Montecito. This is because the properties in Montecito can be large with an acre or more and because it is gorgeous, peaceful, safe and desirable!

I wanted a large Estate with a guest house, 1 acre, pool, many bedrooms and bathrooms and on a large beautiful street with a long driveway. I found all that in The Sycamore Canyon Estate!

What makes this estate unique

The unique benefits of the Sycamore Canyon Estate are that it is located in the heart of Montecito on a large beautiful Estate amidst the movie stars and the rich! Oprah lives right around the corner! It is also right across the street from Ganna Walska's Lotusland. Look online to learn about this famous property that is seasonally open to the public!

Great vacation! Great for a family up to 6. Lots of room, clean, relaxing, quiet, convenient to everything - beach, town. Process was very easy from payment to checking in to departure. The only suggestion I have is getting a kitchen table - there was no place to eat (only a tiny table that could fit 2 kids for breakfast). We would definitely return and plan to!!

Owner's Response: Julie stayed in the 2 bedroom, 1 bath Guest House. The Main House is now being offered. Thank you Julie for the great review! I am so sorry about the kitchen table. The table was meant to be pulled out so that 4 - 5 guests can sit there. I have moved the table to another location that is now easily accessible and has plenty of space for up to 5 guests! Also, don't forget the poolside seating outside for 10 guests! You will see the difference when you return! elle

Phenomenal House

Had an incredible time in this estate. The owner was gracious and respectful of our privacy. The gift basket was a nice touch as well.

We will definitely look into staying here again next time we're in Montecito

Dear Elle,

We had a great time staying at your house. This house has so much character. Plenty bedrooms and each decorated in their own unique and interesting way. We felt very comfortable and cozy. And the location is great and very convenient to get to town and nearby places of interest. Thanks. Ray and family.
