Our cottage is located at the end of a cul de sac on a one acre paradise with beautifully designed gardens in Montecito. Located 3/4 of a mile from the ocean, the 650 square foot cottage has a lovely living room with gas/wood burning fireplace, spacious full kitchen, cozy bedroom and full bath. Access to shopping, restaurants, the beach and hiking trails make this the perfect semi-rural getaway. The cottage has all the modern amenities including a fully equipped kitchen, flat screen TV, DVD,wi-fi, patio, and ping pong.
My husband Gary and I have two children and built this cottage four years ago so I could pursue my love of sculpture. I use one room in the cottage for my work leaving the remaining 650 square feet to share with guests. Our family and friends have enjoyed the peacefulness and beauty of the cottage and now we are offering it to the public on a limited basis. I do not work in my studio when we have guests ensuring that you will have complete privacy during your stay with us. The cottage is a stand alone building on our beautiful one acre property.
Vicky Linker purchased this cottage in 2009
Montecito has many areas of quiet tranquility and beauty. Gary and I chose this property to raise our family. We welcome you to enjoy the gardens, lawns, fruit trees and recreational facilities.
The Cottage has several very endearing amenities including a beautiful sink that we purchased in Puerta Vallerta, handpainted tile in the kitchen, bathroom and fireplace, hardwood flooring, special lighting fixtures, as well as views of the mountains, backyard gardens, lawn and fruit trees.
Great house, great hosts. The cottage that Gary and Vicky have created is a beauty; comfortable and roomy, with lovely touches from the doors to the ceilings to the cabinets and furniture. It's a great location for branching out all through the Santa Barbara area, with easy access to the freeway; it's also on the bus line, if you're so inclined, which I was. Gary and Vicky made me feel very welcome, and I'm grateful for their hospitality and for their beautiful cottage.
We stayed for a week in Gary & Vicky's cottage and had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the tasteful, cozy and well equipped cottage as well as the area around. There are so many things to do in the Montecito/Santa Barbara area, the beach in walking distance and a lot of nice little shops and great restaurants near by.
A perfect place to get away from all and recharge for the new year.
The owners Gary & Vicky were both attentive and respectful of the privacy needed. Communication with Vicky was easy and informative. I was seen to during both my arrival and departure.
The accommodations however are the highlight of my stay. Beautifully made cottage in fairly decent part of their yard. The porch held for some wonderful evenings and mornings with a table and a hammock. The living room is covered with a cherry maple type of flooring and the kitchen had all the kitchenware I needed for some homemade meals. Both the bedroom and bathroom had everything you needed. A retreat for two would be perfect here. I was here on my own since I needed some time away from the city, but anyone would have a great time with a significant other or a family member.
Absolutely loved Gary & Vicky's cottage. It's newer construction, so everything is in perfect condition. Having a fireplace and a porch to enjoy made all the difference; like our own little home away from home. We also enjoyed the location. Great for morning or evening walks thru the beautiful neighborhoods in Montecito. Very special place and the owners were attentive while respecting our privacy..perfect!
We have now had three separate stays at this cottage; we love it and highly recommend it to anyone traveling to or through Santa Barbara. The owners, Vicky and Gary, are wonderful and they have created something very special on their property. Highly, highly recommended!
We were lucky enough to spend three nights in this charming "casita" tucked away in one of the prettiest parts of Montecito, and we loved every minute of it! The owners are delightful and very helpful, and the cottage is completely private--a little oasis. You have everything you need, and you could be perfectly happy just lying in the hammock on the porch and listening to the crickets! But it's also a quick drive to the freeway, and 10 minutes to downtown Santa Barbara with all the art, culture, shopping, and restaurants you could wish for. (Don't miss the Santa Barbara Museum of Art!) Montecito has its own little shopping areas very nearby, and we loved exploring the neighborhood.
We can't say enough good things about this place, and we loved it so much we are going back six weeks later for another stay!
Located in beautiful Montecito you are moments away from tourist attractions, beaches or mountain hikes. Within one mile of the cottage you can find a variety of fine restaurants and high end shopping. Nearby Santa Barbara has more exciting visitor destinations, shopping areas, leisurely walking or hiking trails and restaurants. Our wharf and waterfront provide a lovely panoramic view of the city. You also have easy access to the Santa Ynez wineries. We are ninety miles from Los Angeles, 145 miles from Hearst Castle and 300 miles from the Bay Area.
