A Little Bit of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation home. We had the pleasure of staying there for a week and didn't want to leave. Ever! The house is just perfect. Large rooms, comfortable furnishings, beautiful big modern kitchen. Everything is maintained perfectly. The outdoor area is fabulous. Beautiful new furniture, great bbq island, amazing koi pond, and wonderful hot tub. Something for everyone in the family. A beautiful quick walk to a magnificent beach. There aren't enough adjectives to describe this wonderful home. Perfect, perfect!! Can't wait to go back.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home for a week with 8 adults an three littles.

The property exceeded our expectations.

We would strongly recommend this property. The home is very well maintained, perfect location and comfy.

Very easy check in and check out with excellent customer service. We had a minor issue of water backing up in the upstairs shower that was immediately addressed, with no inconvenience at all to us. The property management showed genuine

concern and responded within minutes.

This home has many amenities an is very spacious. There are tv's in every bedroom, game room and living room. They have nice bikes with helmets to use. Board games, pool table, bad mitten, a beautiful spa an outdoor living space with koi pond.

Don't pass this gem up!

Fabulous Home - Great for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the house is terrific. The rooms were comfy and we had lots of space for everyone. The house is laid out so well with lots of places for people to do their own thing or come together and chat, play games, whatever. We are a group of ladies who get together twice a year to reconnect and this house was our favorite...and we've been doing this for over 10 years. We especially loved the outdoor fireplace, bbq and koi pond but the jacuzzi was alos pretty great. However, our favorite place ended up being the kitchen area. Since we stay in for all our meals, it was a place to hang out with the cook, have some wine and chat. Hope to return next Fall!

Magical Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I'm still transitioning back to reality after our trip to Montecito. I don't know where to start with this house and the area surrounding it. I had never been to the Santa Barbara area, which was described to me as magical, by a friend. It was just that, for me!

The house is very welcoming and comfortable, specifically the couches in the TV room and the den. The kitchen has ample space and is conducive to conversation, as any good kitchen should be. When we were not in the hot tub out back, which overlooks the mountains, we were standing around the island, laughing and telling stories. The flowers and landscape design of the property is impeccable. We would sit out back, watching the Koi in the pond, listening to the waterfall and all of a sudden out of the corner of your eye you would see a hummingbird on some bright red flower. Incredible! The rooms are spacious and the master bathroom is beautiful. The shower in the master bathroom was perfect! More than hotel style.

We enjoyed biking to the beach with brand-new bicycles provided. It was only a couple of blocks and you were at the ocean.

As far as food goes, I don't know where to start, but I remember the chicken sandwich at Honor Bar being incredible and Saturday night at the Stone House restaurant at The San Ysidro Ranch. One of the best meals of my life. Really!

We went on a very unique tour of a local horticultural estate called Lotusland. There are really no words to describe this experience, but I highly recommend you check it out if you stay here. Like nothing I've ever seen.

We will surely return. Thank you for the wonderful memories!

Quintessential Montecito Experience - Absolutely Exquisite

  • 5 of 5

Our family has had countless vacation home rental experiences in my life, but none as great as our recent stay at this beautiful home in Monetcito. After just a few days, I felt what is was like to live in a beautiful home in Montecito. Firstly, there is not a room in the entire house that isn't decorated beautifully. Absolutely everything in the house is updated and modern, from the every appliance we used to the oversized flatscreen TVs, to the sound system- and all the fixtures. The rooms are huge - and every morning, I literally had many choices as to where to have my morning coffee - beautiful porches in front, back, side and even on the 2nd floor overlooking the front gardens! Some of my our favorite activities were using the pool table, riding bikes, watching the koi swim around in possibly the largest backyard Koi pond I've ever seen - and walking to Butterfly Beach and the beautiful Biltmore Hotel. I loved that this home was literally next door to Ty Warner's estate (founder of Beanie Babies & owner of the Biltmore)...That's how you know you're in the right place in Santa Barbara!

In summary, you can tell when someone cares about their property...and my guess is, the owner uses it for themselves - because of how great the house is appointed and maintained. I fell in love with Montecito and Santa Barbara - all over again and our trip would not have been as special in a basic hotel room no matter how great the hotel. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to be in exactly the right spot in the SB/Montecito area.

Warm, comfortable and attractive.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at this comfortable home. The home is attractively decorated and immaculately kept.The numerous rooms provide opportunities for everyone to enjoy activities together as well as spend time alone with one's thoughts or a book. The expansive and well-designed kitchen was a perfect gathering place for children and adults during meal preparation. This was our second visit to this property, and we hope to enjoy future stays. Many thanks, Katie H. in Chicago
