Beautiful casita in a lovely area

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this beautiful well equipped casita in Montecito. It was ideally located for visiting the area, within walkable distance of the shops and restaurants in Monecito and the beach. It was also very near Santa Barbara being only 5 minutes away by car.

We enjoyed having a private area to sit out in the lovely garden and the hot tub was wonderful to come back to after a long day out exploring. Everything was very clean and well presented with space for our family of five to enjoy. We were all sad to leave but hope we might be able to visit again in the future.

HEAVEN !

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful,charming casita! In a beautiful quiet little neighborhood. So convenient to both town and beach. The only problem was, that you couldn't wait to gat back to the casita each day, just to enjoy the comfort and serenity ( and all the amenities ) that were provided. it was just heaven! We will definitely be back.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week. The home is a short 5-10 minute walk away from most everything. Great for bike riding to any of the local beaches or town. The house was very comfortable for 4 adults and our 2 dogs. The kitchen and bathroom was fully stocked with the extras that you normally don't see in other rentals. The owners are very close by and attentive to all your needs. It was a great, relaxing stay!
