Magical!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a spent a memorable week in the "Charming Cottage" celebrating our 50th anniversary and attending a college reunion. The cottage more than lived up to its billing! Both the house and the yard are gorgeous. The house has multiple French doors and windows that bring in light and provide both access to, and wonderful views of, the property. The most difficult decision we had to make was where to sit to sip our wine! No matter where you go in the house or yard, you find comfortable seating and beautiful venues. Even the day it rained was pleasurable. We turned on the big gas fireplace in the cozy living room and enjoyed our morning coffee while watching the rain fall.

On the more practical side, the property has everything you would need for a perfect stay. The bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable, and outfitted with elegant linens. The bed faces the French doors in the bedroom, giving you a view of yard and pool. The main house has both a full and a half bath and there is a second full bath in the guest house, which is just a few steps from the master and very convenient. Both full baths have ample empty drawer space where you can stash your stuff, lots of towels, hair dryers, and even travel-sized toiletries, if you need them. The kitchen is nicely laid out with plenty of cookware and a huge stove that is a joy to use. There is an extensive selection of spices and other basics available as well. We cooked almost every day. (There's a Trader Joe's about 10 minutes from the house where you can stock up on whatever you need.) Other amenities include a lovely pool, an outdoor dining patio with fireplace, lots of other charming seating areas outside, bikes, ping pong table, and even a tree swing. The guest house, which is a delightful space on its own, has a full-sized washer and dryer. The owners, Nik and Pamela, were always responsive both throughout the booking process, and when we had questions during our visit.

Staying at the "Charming Cottage" was a bit of a splurge for us, but so very worth it! We did a lot of research before selecting a place to stay, and we made the best possible decision in renting here. This awesome property was perfect for our romantic getaway, and would also be great for two couples traveling together, a girlfriends trip, or a family with older children or teens. We loved the "Charming Cottage" and you will too!

Montecito cottage with eclectic charm

  • 5 of 5

We spent our first week in Santa Barbara during a deluge of rain. The house kept us cosey and was pleasant even without California sun. The garden is very special. Something for everyone there. The house had lots of ambiance and we enjoyed it .Nic, the owner, was a helpful and gracious host.

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
