Montecito Villa Rental Photos and Description
Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths
Relax or entertain in our tranquil Montecito property!
Situated high on a hill with spectacular 180-degree views of both the mountains and ocean, our Arcady Escape is located in Montecito, the popular Santa Barbara enclave chosen by many celebrities as their home away from home. Though you’ll find it behind the private gates of “Arcady,” which was once part of the lovely historical estate of George Owen Knapp, our property is just 5 minutes away from gorgeous Butterfly Beach in front of the Biltmore Four Seasons, as well as Lower Village, Upper Village, and a multitude of popular trailheads into the surrounding foothills.
Our house is divided into two floors. Upstairs you’ll find 3 ample bedrooms: a master king suite with a balcony, spacious rain shower, and separate oversized tub with a view of the mountains; a queen-size bedroom with peaceful treetop and ocean views; and a second queen-size bedroom with cozy window seat overlooking the beautiful garden. Downstairs, enjoy the quiet of our study (with fireplace) that exits out onto a floral patio and stone terrace. In addition to the master bathroom, there are two other full baths throughout the property and a well-appointed kitchen with limestone countertops, Spanish tile floors, and Viking/ Kitchen Aide/Bosch appliances.
There are numerous French doors that open out onto our expansive deck and terraces, ideal for entertaining, BBQs, or enjoying our breathtaking views—perfect for watching the sunrise. If it’s chilly, gather by the outdoor chimney or cuddle on the sofa in front of the living room fireplace with a good book.
Our charming and comfortable Spanish home is ideal for groups of friends or small families looking for a quiet getaway to relax and enjoy time together.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We had an amazing experience, we loved the house. Kevin was very helpful as was the whole rental process.
Thank you so much
We are a couple, celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary this year and are about to retire. Because we love to travel we've decided it would be a good idea to share our much-loved home while we're away.
We enjoy living in Arcady because of the gigantic views and the historical significance of the Knapp Estate. The original buildings on the estate are still here along with 20 smaller villas including our own. The neighborhood has formed an association to maintain the beauty of Arcady, creating a warm friendly atmosphere and sense of safety inside our gates.
Our home is 3200 square feet....just the right size for entertaining and still maintain the feel of comfortable coziness. When we added the decks in 2005, it was the crowning touch and made our family certain that we will always be at home in Arcady.
