About Monique Pierce

I'm from NY and I fell in love with the SB area 10 years ago. I have been visiting SB for then on for both business and pleasure for both long and short term.

Finally I moved last year. I want to share

my house in SB with other who seek to experience a home here.

I also live on premises in a separate guesthouse. So I'm available for my guests for anything that may arise.

Monique Pierce purchased this apartment in 2010

Great ranch house in Santa Barbara

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a nice rental property to enjoy time with family, this will be a great stay for you and your family! We stayed here for one week in July 2012 and had a great time. This ranch house has a lot to offer from looking at and enjoying the varied animals, to spending time in the lovely backyard with the pool, to driving the short distance to the beach or downtown State St. area. Overall, this house was very pleasant and met our needs for a family vacation. Monique the owner is also very nice and since she lives on site, was very accessible to meet your needs or answer questions. Monique provided fresh eggs from her chickens, and we were able to pet the chickens, the donkey Oliver and the horse Peaches. The dog Logan is very friendly too and loved playing with our dog! The dog beach was a short drive away as well and it was awesome to be so close and take our dog there several times!

Although this property says it is ok for small children, I would only go with an infant (as we did) or older children. Some items in the house such as the glass coffee table or glass dining table inside are not child friendly, but overall, especially with the animals and the pool, it is a fun place for older kids. The chickens and roosters are right by the bedroom windows and they did keep us up at night or early morning, and it took some getting used to. I thought the chickens would be farther away from the actual house.

Overall, my family and I would recommend staying at this property! We had a great time!

IT WAS SO AMAZING TO BE SO CLOSE TO THE BEACH AND DOWNTOWN SANTA BARBARA , WITH THE FEELING OF BEING IN THE COUNTRY AT THE SAME TIME, BEAUTIFUL HORSE, PEACHES AND HIS SIDE KICK, MINI MULE OLLIE, MY DAUGHTER HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A LESSON IN ENGLISH SADDLE FROM MONIQUE. THERE IS ALSO A GARDEN WITH THE MOST WONDERFUL VEGETABLES, AND, UNIQUE CHICKENS ( DESIGNER KIND) THAT LAID EGGS WHICH WE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE. OH, THOSE STRING BEENS FROM PORTUGAL, MONIQUE EVEN GAVE US SOME SEEDS TO PLANT AT HOME. I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THIS PHENOMINAL VACATION WEEK THAT WE HAD. VERY ELEGANT, DOWN COMFORTORS AND ALL. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.

a nice place to stay in SB

  • 5 of 5

I stayed 5 weeks at this property (both in the studio and in the apartment) and had a very nice time. The apartment and the studio are both well maintained and very clean.The landlord and her family are all very helpful and friendly. The place is conveniently located (close to shops, bus lines, bike lanes, and SB downtown is also very close) and is perfect to spend some time in the SB area. In addition to that, the property is also the home of a horse and a nice "mini donkey" (not to mention the chickens, the cat and the dog), which adds to the picturesque charm of the place. I definitively recommend this place.

Great apartment rental

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful three-week stay at the ranch. The apartment is well-maintained and very clean, with wonderful views of the mountains. It is within easy reach of a bike path to the beach. I would definitely consider staying here again.

what a lovely place

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful 3 weeks in this property.The landlady was extremely helpful and made us feel at home. Our children were able to be with the horse and donkey as much as they wished, they also fed them and cleaned them. They even collected eggs from the chickens which they cooked and ate immediately. We all had such a good time that it was very hard to leave. The interior of the apartment (2nd floor) is very nice and clean and the view of the mountains from the balcony is still in our memory.
