Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Santa Barbara many times over the years because it is an easy getaway from San Diego. We have decided Montecito is the place for us! Nik and Pamela's home is very comfortable, and easy to live in. We also made time to get out and see the neighborhood, we hiked out the back gate on a wooded trial, and also walked into town. The pool and large yard was an added bonus. We cooked in and ate out, both were a pleasure. I can't wait to book it again!

P.S. Lucky's in Montecito is the best, very accommodating and the food was delicious

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Nik and Pamela's home was perfect! Warm, comfortable, tastefully furnished and fully equipped. From Sonos sound system to Nespresso coffee maker, it was perfect. The multiple indoor and outdoor fireplaces were used every day and the adjacent trails through old oak forests were beautiful! We walked daily to either the upper or the lower village along charming hedge/ lined lanes, and enjoyed the multiple outdoor seating areas at mealtimes. We would definitely return!

Yet another fantastic stay at this beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We have just had our 6th stay at this beautiful home! We love it so much we keep coming back it feels like we are staying in a friends house rather than a rental property as it is so warm and comfortable, Nik the owner is very attentive yet considers our privacy. We have stayed at other rentals and been relaxing by the pool and the owner has just walked in on the rare occasion that Nik has turned up he always knocks on the door and never just walks in. The house is lovely and the gardens are beautiful plenty of space to relax as a group but equally lots of little places to sit and read a book in quiet. Ideally located for the beach, Santa Barbara the quaint charm of Montecito yet the hustle and bustle of LA is only 90 minutes away. In fact we love it so much we have booked again for next year!

A Cottage Beyond Compare

  • 5 of 5

This property is indeed charming! It is a beautiful, well-maintained, decorated, and landscaped home with comfortable and spacious rooms in the main house, as well as a large, clean guest cottage. There are plenty of social areas both inside and outside for family gatherings. Our family enjoyed several days on the property in September -- relaxing by the pool and dining on the covered patio. The house is located very near to the beach and the village of Montecito. It is a perfect getaway for those wanting privacy -- or just to escape for a relaxing home away from home!! The owners are delightful and available when needed.
