We are an English family and moved here in 1993 as an experiment, and have been here ever since!

Owner purchased this house in 1996

We bought this property because we loved its situation and knew that after renovations it would be the house of our dreams. We extensively remodeled little by little and now its turned into more than we ever imagined.

What is unique about this property is that it is tucked away and is quiet, private and peaceful yet close by to everything ....shops, restaurants, beaches etc. Its wonderful to relax by the pool and see the mountains behind, or read in the hammock under the incredible oak tree., or dine by the fire on the patio ...

The ideal family vacation property

  • 5 of 5
Our week at this beautiful property exceeded our expectations…all the comforts of home, and then some! The tennis court was a highlight--we played several times a day. The court has a beautiful view of the mountains, and of the stars at night. The pool and spa are heated and are very safe, with a motorized cover. There is a lot of privacy (you can't see neighboring properties), but the convenient location allows for easy access to shops, beach, and dining. There is so much to do in Montecito and Santa Barbara: the zoo, the aquarium, the Public Market, nearby wineries, horseback riding, golf, antiquing--we tried it all. The house easily accommodated our extended family of 10, with plenty of space to spread out…multiple eating and gathering areas. The owner was friendly,helpful, and responsive. We would return again in a heartbeat!

Long-Term Stay

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five with 3 children stayed here from September 2013 to June 2014. Having decided to move here from Germany, we took on the lease here after seeing the house on VRBO and having a few conversations with the Owner. Renting out “sign unseen” can be daunting and the other reviews here helped give us confidence perhaps it might help someone else.

Firstly, the location. The house is located in Montecito, and more importantly for many families with elementary school children it is in the MUS school district, a few minutes drive from here. Although we were ignorant to the fact, we are VERY happy we landed at this school. Many families rent here just so they can send their children to this very well financed and well run public school.

Secondly, the house. The house is spacious and well decorated which makes it very comfortable. As the owner does often spend time here when she is not renting, the kitchen (and house) is very fully stocked. We brought “stuff” with us from Germany but it was not at all necessary.

Thirdly, the extras; This is where, at least for us, it counted most since we came to Santa Barbara to enjoy the sunny outdoors. The house and gardens are laid out very well. Everything is where it should be. Starting from the back end of the property is the tennis court – perfectly situated and with gorgeous mountain views. Then comes the Guest house with its own enclosed pool area with a pool cover and beautiful shrubbery and a gate for added protection (we have a 2 year old). The pool area is well set up with enough very comfortable chaise-longues for the family. We had several families visiting during our extended stay and they were comfortably able to pack in a family of 5 with the provided extra mattress. There is a kitchenette but I don’t think it was ever used. Then as you stroll from the guest house to the main house, you pass the grassy area with a beautiful oak tree to the side providing just enough shade when you´ve had enough sun.
As you step from garden to the house, the patio is very tastefully decorated with a large table, couch and chairs, a fireplace, built-in grill, etc. All strategically placed next to the kitchen for easy access. This was really a highlight for us.

As with any house, from time to time something breaks and needs to be fixed. The owner was always very responsive in getting someone out for quick repairs as well as giving us the “inside scoop” on everything Santa

100% perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5
This house in a word is .... stunning. The photos don't do it justice and it far exceeded our expectations in every way! It is beautifully and tastefully decorated. Colette has thought of absolutely everything and made us feel at home as soon as we walked in. We spent our days lounging by the pool, playing tennis, ping pong, croquet and eating outside at night by the fire on the fabulous patio. The bedrooms are all comfy and cosy and the kitchen is fantastic - a chef's delight! We have rented many houses and this is the best yet. If you can't have fun at this house, good luck having fun elsewhere!

Can't recommend this house highly enough. It's great value and Colette was wonderful to work with, can't wait to come back. Thank you Colette for making our vacation so special!

My family and I stayed here one year and the next year I came back with some friends - which should pretty much say it all! It is a truly fabulous home and in a fantastic setting. To swim laps looking up at the mountains is wonderful.

It is a perfect place to gather the family (or a bunch of friends), to stop and recharge. The amenities are amazing - swimming, tennis, ping-pong, croquet. And when the lights go down the terrace fireplace and outside dining comes alive.

The beach is just down the round – Santa Barbara is just up the road and if you fancy a trip to L.A. its only an hour and a half away. There’s hiking in the mountains, kayaking on the Pacific, and wine touring in the Santa Ynez valley.

Thank-you Colette for sharing your beautiful and much loved home with us - it had everything we wanted and more.

This is a beautiful but also very comfortable home ... well equipped kitchen, comfy beds, great sheets, Colette has thought of everything down to the last detail. Tennis, ping pong, and a great pool kept the kids busy. Our evenings were spent out side sitting by the fire and eating under the stars. We have rented many homes and this has to be the best. We have already rented it for 2 of our family vacations and plan to come back again - we would highly recommend it to anyone coming to Santa Barbara.
Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

Delightful and very spacious family home in ideal location!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this fantastic house for part of our vacation in USA. It is absolutely stunning and far surpassed what we were expecting. It is a gorgeous home, so comfortable and beautifully decorated -the pictures don't do it justice! We spent our days relaxing by the pool looking up at the amazing mountains, playing tennis, fighting for the hammock under the beautiful oak tree, playing ping pong and croquet and eating outside by the fireplace on the wonderful terrace.

This is the perfect location for visiting Santa Barbara. It has everything - we cant wait to come back!
