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 which now includes two teenagers and our dog, Bella. 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.

Lovely Retreat

I agree with all of the other 5 star reviews. A great place to stay -- clean, tastefully decorated, quiet, in a lovely neighborhood. Kitchen has everything you need; hammock is comfortable and very relaxing. It's in the back yard of the owners' house, but they're both very nice and very good about giving you your privacy. Highly recommended.

Writing Retreat By the Sea

I am a UC professor and needed a quiet and tranquil spot for a solo writing retreat, with good wifi and no distractions. This cottage was absolutely perfect. It is fully appointed and tastefully finished with mission-style decor (elegant tile work, lovely ceramic art, beautiful gardens). I wrote for hours on end, took breaks in the hammock, walked through the lovely surrounding neighborhood and down to the beach, and then wrote some more by the fireplace at night. The owners had just purchased a new mattress, which was firm with pillow top (so not too firm, exactly my preference). Highly recommended for writers, artists, anyone who needs a retreat! Thank you Vicky and Gary!

Home away from home

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. It was really quiet at night. The heater was toasty and kept us warm despite being in the middle of December. There is a really pretty beach close by. Close to Trader Joe’s, just a quick drive to downtown SB, and easy drive up to the mountains.

We got married that Saturday and stayed at the cottage before and after for a minihoneymoon. It was very convenient to be near the rest of the wedding party, but far enough away to have our own privacy. Each evening we came home it was just so comfortable and peaceful staying there.

Vicky and Gary are in the main house and made themselves available whenever we needed them, but of course allow for your privacy during your stay. Which was assuring to know that if anything came up, they’d be right there to fix it. They keep up the grounds very nicely and have beautiful gardens. There’s a fun shuffleboard area as well.

House is clean. Full kitchen. Wifi worked great, heater worked great. Unfortunately, my cell phone reception wasn’t so great, but that’s an issue with T-Mobile (but FYI if anyone else out there has T-Mobile). It’s probably better to be a little more disconnected on your vacation anyway :)

Anyway, sooooooo much better than staying at a hotel. It’s like transporting the comforts of your own home to your vacation.

Great little place in Montecito

Vicky and Gary's place was perfect for the two of us. Quiet and peaceful at night, with the frogs outside to lull you to sleep. The location couldn't be better, with quick access to Trader Joe's for groceries and many restaurants and shops just a short hop away on the 101. Beach access just down San Ysidro Road and Gary even let us borrow their beach chairs for the duration of our stay. Very happy with this place and would recommend it to anyone looking to get away and relax.

Great Experience

I just had a wonderful stay at the cottage. It felt like I was staying in a much larger place than what is normally considered a one bedroom. Vicky and Gary are extremely nice and helpful with anything you need during your stay. What a great porch--I spent a lot of time on the hammock.

And the location can't be beat. I could even walk up to the Montecito coffee shop and all the shops up there and maybe a two minute drive down to coast village road area.

Can't wait to stay there again.

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.
