About the property

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.

Great place to relax and enjoy life. The owner is quick to respond, property is clean and comfortable. Great location with easy access to Santa Barbara or Carpinteria. Would recommend this property to friends and family.

Paradise, indeed!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here for Thanksgiving week and we are so glad we did. I could not have designed a better cottage rental! We arrived after dark and were so pleased at how cheery and charming everything was. Fresh orchids, crisp linens, plush pillows, and oh - the kitchen! When we walked in, we were greeted by a little pan of freshly made scrumptious brownies and several other goodies on the counter and in the fridge -- so thoughtful! We were exhausted after driving for 6 hours...it was heavenly to relax into such a welcoming place!

The two bedrooms on the main level were adorable and so cozy - I noted the lovely linens but my kids (ages 13 and 11) were focused on the little dishes of candy, haha. The downstairs consists of the master bedroom with bathroom. FYI, there's no door leading into the master but it still felt very private. My insomniac husband remarked on how comfy the bed was and how deeply he slept each night.

And the VIEW -- wow!! We loved sitting on the living room couch and gazing at the ocean from there. We also spent quite a bit of time in the private, plant-filled garden. It was heaven to relax with our coffee each morning, listening to the burbling of the fountain & taking in the deep blue of the ocean.

Location: just a few minutes' walk to the pristine beach where we enjoyed daily strolls with our kids and dog. It's also just a few minutes' walk to the tiny "downtown" Summerland area with a couple of cute cafes and antique shops. To get to the awesome shopping and dining district of downtown Santa Barbara, it's a 10-15 minute drive down the freeway, depending on traffic.

We had such a lovely experience staying at this cottage. I'd love to meet Francesca someday because she seems like such a thoughtful and caring person. She has literally thought of *everything* and adorns the home with every thoughtful detail imaginable. We've rented dozens of homes on VRBO and this was the only one we've visited that was so beautifully set up, down to the finest detail. For example, both bathrooms were stocked with high-quality toilet paper for the entire week, as opposed to the standard 1 roll! And - one of my pet peeves is slow drains - but there wasn't a single slow drain in the entire house! Everything worked perfectly.

If you're looking for a cozy, comfy, charming, welcoming place that's well-stocked, dog-friendly, and meticulously clean...AND super close to the beach -- this is it! We cannot wait to come back!

Paradise Cottage is appropriately named

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I visited Santa Barbara and were fortunate enough to stay at Paradise Cottage. It is a lovely, inviting, well cared for cottage. Every morning, we enjoyed breakfast and tea on the deck overlooking the ocean. Hummingbirds visited us there as they drank of the nectar and bathed in the fountain. Absolutely delightful! It's a peaceful, quiet spot just right for relaxing and enjoying the view. The cottage is minutes from Rt. 101 which is easy access to dozens of points of interest.

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.
