Summerland Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3BR/2BA Oceanview, sleeps 6

This romantic three-bedroom, two-bath cottage offers spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands and is located two minutes from one of the classic beaches in the Santa Barbara area. Summerland, on the edge of Santa Barbara and Montecito, has a delightful village atmosphere with unique shops, a local winery, several restaurants and coffee shops.

The cottage has an open and airy feeling with vaulted ceilings, a large inviting kitchen, hardwood floors and wool carpets, decks off the kitchen and master bedroom, fireplace, heated tile floors, digital cable, high-speed wireless Internet, DVD/VCR and is furnished with antiques. Landscaping is extraordinary with palm trees and an English garden with roses and numerous flowering plants year-round.

The romantic master bedroom features a vaulted ceiling and an antique queen-sized bed with the highest quality bedding. French doors open onto a private deck and enclosed patio. This property is owned by Santa Barbara Cottages.

The second bedroom has two twin antique French walnut beds, also with high quality linen accessories. The spacious third bedroom, with a king-size bed, is perfect for extra guests and has a private bath, TV, and can double as separate recreation area, if desired.

The living room and kitchen offer expansive views of the ocean and islands offshore. The living area features comfortable seating, wood floors with oriental rugs, vaulted ceilings, fireplace, DVD/VCR, and CD player. The kitchen features state-of-the-art appliances, new cabinets, wood floors, and a sweeping view of the ocean through French doors that lead to an adjacent deck and the cottage garden. The enclosed garden offers additional seating areas for picnics and barbecues.

Summerland Beach and Lookout Park is less than ¼ mile from the cottage.

I've lost count of the number of times our family has returned to Paradise Cottage over the past few years. Our kids just refer to it as "our vacation house" and don't believe us when we tell them it's not really ours! We love knowing a dish of warm brownies and lots of fresh fruit will be waiting for us when we arrive that first day, and throughout the week we are made so comfortable with the little details that always seem to be covered. Many thanks to Francesca and John for all the work they have done to make this such a cozy, beautiful cottage.

Lovely girls' weekend in a beautiful cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Paradise cottage was perfect for our girls' weekend celebrating a couple big birthdays. The views from the front room and the patio were gorgeous and the home was very cozy. The kitchen was impressively stocked with all the tools we needed to cook some delicious meals. The location was convenient and quiet off the main drag, despite the noise from the 101 which was easily forgiven for the views. We also appreciated the thoughtful assortment of snacks and treats left for us. The patio was lovely, however we were unable to spend much time enjoying it due to recent rains leaving things a bit soggy. It would be a great place to relax and dine in the summer months for sure. Overall, we had a great experience and would definitely come again and recommend to others.

Paradise in Summerland

  • 5 of 5

This is our 6th stay at one of the Santa Barbara Cottage properties. We return year after year not only because of the great location, but also the consistent experience. Francesca ensures that the properties are well maintained, clean, and welcoming. Staying here feels as if we're at home because she's thought of everything. You'll find the basics in the kitchen, stacks of towels in the linen closet, internet access, a gas grill on the patio ready for your use, and well thought out rooms. After a long day shopping and exploring Santa Barbara, the comfy sectional in the living room is a welcome site.

The garden at Paradise Cottage is inspiring, the succulents and brick patio encourage you to linger in the morning with a cup of coffee.

Summerland is a great "home base" to enjoy your vacation from. It's a quick trip to Carpinteria, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Solvang, or just about anywhere you'd want to venture to. We especially enjoy the quick walk down the hill to Lillie Avenue in the mornings to grab a breakfast burrito at Stacky's or a more leisurely breakfast at the Summerland Beach Cafe.

Francesca thank you for the attention to detail and thoughtfulness you put into your properties. A stay at any of the "cottages" is a great experience.

Delightful Paradise Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Paradise Cottage the first week in June, 2016. The house was thoroughly lovely with special touches such as brownies and champagne on arrival and fresh flowers in every room! The lay-out of the cottage was comfortable for six people. In fact, we felt the house and the gardens were larger than they seemed in the pictures. The garden area was spectacular with plenty of space to enjoy the fresh air, view of the ocean, sunbathe, read and picnic. Wonderful!
