Montecito House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 8-12)

Step through the gates of Spring House and you will be welcomed by a serene fountain and Zen statuary. Enjoy secluded privacy in a lush tropical setting. Step outside the gates and you are a mere 5 minute walk from Butterfly Beach - the most beautiful beach in Santa Barbara, the historic Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel and Spa, and Coast Village Road - the exclusive heart of Montecito with a wide variety of dining options, boutiques and gift shops, and business and banking services. Enjoy that vacation cocktail without the worry of driving home!

The layout of Spring House with allows maximum flexibility for multiple families or families traveling with a nanny. Your host is committed to ensuring you have the vacation of your dreams, and will make whatever arrangements you require, including grocery shopping, booking recreational activities (including contacts with extraordinary and exclusive local outfitters), providing catering services, vetted babysitting services, and arranging spa and beauty services with only the most talented professionals in the community. We will introduce you to the Santa Barbara only locals know. If you prefer total privacy, Spring House will be ready and waiting for you with no management contact.

Spring House exceeds customary expectations, and is a luxury experience from original art to thread count to Viking appliances. The living room contains two separate conversation areas which lead to an enclosed terrace through two sets of French doors, where a second fountain provides background music for your dining or lounging pleasure. The formal dining room seats six with room for additional tables and an adjacent bar with six bar stools. The main kitchen is adjacent to the dining room in an open floor plan style sharing the warmth of a gas fueled automatic fireplace and a flat screen tv. The kitchen is appointed with Viking appliances, granite counter tops and a soaring ceiling with skylights. A glass door and pass through windows over a farmhouse sink give way to a gracious brick patio decorated with potted plants and dense landscaping where the third of four fountains gurgles while you dine or relax. The BBQ is located here. The media room also serves as a fourth bedroom with complete privacy; it houses a 47' flat screen, a second fireplace, a queen sleeper sofa with additional memory foam feather bed, and a massage chair. The fifth bedroom contains an abbreviated kitchen with sink, mini-fridge and microwave, and a full bathroom. The wall of windows in this bedroom folds open to a lanai with treadmill, fountain, jacuzzi and sauna.

The master bedroom is furnished with an exotic teak king bed, a fireplace, a conversation area, and flat screen. It includes a huge walk-in closet with built-in dresser, an en suite bathroom with travertine counters and floors and a dressing table. The second bedroom also has an en suite bathroom, a queen four-poster, and a private balcony. The third bedroom is charmingly decorated with a seating area and game table, and contains a king size bed and a daybed with trundle to sleep four people comfortably. The house is well stocked with a wi-fi connected computer, iPod docking stations, movies, books, games, and puzzles.

The multiple cooking and dining options make Spring House a perfect location for major holidays or large scale entertaining. The extensive landscaping is well-lit for leisurely al fresco evenings in Santa Barbara's year-round temperate climate. The outdoor experience at this compound is a fantasy of light, sound, water and tropical foliage. Expect the very best...You will get it here!

We respect your privacy and leave you alone unless you call.

Elizabeth Winthrop purchased this house in 2011

Why Elizabeth Winthrop chose Montecito

The Butterfly Beach area of Montecito affords our guests a unique and rare opportunity to enjoy many aspects of town on foot. Given how much time most of us spend in our cars, we felt that this was a special gift we wanted to share with visitors to Santa Barbara.

What makes this house unique

Walking virtually next door and being on the gorgeous grounds of the Four Seasons Biltmore is certainly special, whether lingering over Sunday brunch or having a facial and massage at the spa. Afterwards, a walk on the beach feels just right. Sometimes after sleeping in, it's fun to walk over to Jeannine's All-American Bakery and sit outside for a delicious breakfast or lunch. And of course, when we want to see and be seen, we hit the night time scene at Lucky's, the hip Montecito steakhouse owned by Gene Montesano of Lucky Jean's fame.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family came here for my graduation from UCSB. The house gave them a great first impression of Santa Barbara and they loved staying here.

Awesome elegant and spacious rental

  • 5 of 5
We rented this amazing home for our daughter's wedding in Santa Barbara. It was perfect for our family which included elder parents, young adults and grandkids. With our large group we never felt crowded. There are plenty of outside areas to separate yourselves. The hot tub and sauna were a plus. The kitchen was perfect for feeding everyone. The owners were wonderful to work with. I would definitely come back and rent this again. Great location, close to beach, Santa Barbara, the zoo, shops and groceries. The house had everything we needed. The master bedroom was grand and allowed us to dress for the wedding in comfort. This is a definite must place for any size group. Gorgeous grounds too.

Awesome Location!

  • 5 of 5
We had a girl's get-away at the Spring House and it could not have been more perfect - it just felt like home! The beach and downtown Montecito are a mere 5 minute walk and the beach is wonderful for long walks and viewing the sunset - we also saw porpoise and grey whales swim by. Lots of room and comfort in the house and many private quiet areas on the decks outside. We enjoyed the bright spacious kitchen for most of our meals. Highly recommended.

Exceptional!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
The home, accommodations, location and homeowner are absolutely a perfect combo for this rental. Betsy could not have been more considerate and professional. We arrived with the home perfectly staged and prepped for our extended weekend, including a hand-written welcome sign, pack-n-plays and highchairs awaiting, and windows cracked, providing the most amazing fresh air this Chicago-man has experienced in over 6 months. We had 10 people all together ranging from 9mo-60y, and there was still room to spare!

Lovely stay at Spring House

  • 5 of 5
Our daughter's wedding was in Santa Baraba and we rented the Spring House to have a gathering place for our family. We had a fabulous time and the Spring House was perfect! It sleeps 10-12 people very comfortably and the space is designed in such a way that you can have comfortable get togethers with everyone while also supporting privacy and and quieter times as well. The grounds are lovely and the home is very close, walking distance, to the cute village and the beach. Betsy was wonderful to work with - would recommend to anyone and look forward to a stay there again in the future.

Luxurious Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We were a party of 8 family members and one toddler attending our daughter's Santa Barbara wedding. Spring house was the perfect retreat for us; a beautiful gem of a home surrounded by lush landscaping and artistic water features. Everyone had their own area and we never felt crowded. The house is elegantly appointed and sparkling clean, and the kitchen is fully stocked for home meal preparation. We had a lovely dinner party out on the main patio one night, and family members were able to flow in and out of the kitchen and make themselves at home. Wonderful restaurants are within walking distance in Montecito, as is one of the nicest beaches in the area. Believe all of the reviews you read -- everything is true! Betsy, the owner, was incredibly helpful, recommending several services that were needed for the wedding. She is fantastic to work with, and I never hesitated to contact her with questions. She responds immediately. You will not be disappointed if you decide to stay at Spring House. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer!
