Studio Cottage close to the beach (Sleeps 2)
Come and enjoy some peace and serenity at our Butterfly Beach Studio Cottage in Montecito! Tucked away down a quiet lane, but close to all amenities, we know you will love it here. Less than a 10 minute walk to Coast Village Road, you will find everything you need... coffee, food, shopping, and groceries. Just a couple minutes farther, you will find paradise on Butterfly Beach, near the Four Season's Biltmore Hotel.
Situated on our property, but not attached to our home, is our unique cottage with private entrance and patio for your enjoyment. This studio has always been a long term rental, but after a beautiful renovation we have decided to make it a vacation rental so others can enjoy as much as we do.
Sit back in the spacious, private patio and barbecue after a lovely day at the beach or enjoy a movie on the 40' flat screen TV. There is a mini kitchen with granite counter and sink plus small appliances for all of your needs. We have recently put in a washer/dryer unit for your convenience as well.
The cottage is cozy and can fit 2 adults comfortably, and 1 child or 2 small children. We have everything you need for the beach including towels, beach chairs, umbrella, and boogie boards. We also have bicycles for your enjoyment including 2 stylin' beach cruisers. We have also added a 2 person spa/jacuzzi. Great for relaxing after a day at the beach or for star gazing with a glass of complimentary wine and your favorite someone!
We know you will love it here and we look forward to meeting you soon. Bob & Athena (and Nicole)

About Robert & Athena (owners), Nicole (daughter/online manager)
After meeting in Santa Barbara and marrying here in 1979, we decided to find the perfect property for us. We love the beach and wanted a location that we could walk to most everything or be a few minutes drive away. We bought this property in 1982 and have remodeled and renovated to make it a wonderful home and environment for raising our 3 children. We decided to share this ideal setting with others so that you may enjoy this part of California as much as we do.

Why Robert & Athena (owners), Nicole (daughter/online manager) chose Montecito
We love the beach, biking, beach volleyball, kayaking, hiking, tennis and our grown kids also enjoy surfing, yoga, paddleboarding and rock climbing when they visit as well. All of these activities are withing a 10 minute walk or car ride from our property. This area has so much to offer, including cultural events, wine tasting, and plenty to see and do in downtown Santa Barbara day and night. It's amazing to return to our peaceful home afterward to relax. Not to mention the wonderful weather we get year-round!

Wonderful guests and wonderful home! 10-15 min walk to the beach. We'll be back.
Wonderful stay in Montecito
Butterfly Beach Cottage is the perfect getaway location. Located just up the hill from downtown Montecito the location is perfect! We enjoyed using the cruisers provided and riding down to Butterfly beach and then into Santa Barbara. The hot tub was wonderful. Can't say enough about the cottage and Bob and Athena were terrific!
Perfect stay in Montecito
Thank you for sharing your perfect little cottage with us over Thanksgiving weekend. So peaceful, clean, has everything we could think of & walking distance to beach, restaurants, & stores. Look forward to returning.
Wonderful in all areas. Owners were thoughtful and place was well furnished. Quiet, private and charming. Walk to restaurants and walk to beach.
The cottage was perfect for my husband and I and our dog.
It had every convenience and a comfortable and beautifully landscaped patio.
We enjoyed walking to the beach and stopping in Montecito on our walks for breakfast
and lunch at the charming casual restaurants .The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet
and it is convenient and easy to drive into Santa Barbara.
We will look forward to our next visit. We have stayed in several rentals in Santa Barbara and Montecito ad we visit often
and Butterfly Cottage has been our favorite.
