Lovely, peaceful neighborhood. Nature sounds abound

  • 5 of 5

The studio bedroom we had was quaint. Adequate space with a private bath lovely hair and body products were provided. Our unit had a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker and toaster. Forks, knives and plates were provided for basic needs. Added linens for cooler weather were provided along with a luggage rack. There was also a nice large fan in the walk in closet which was helpful given the heat wave we were experiencing during our stay. The bed was comfortable. The home owner was quick to respond to contacts made both during the initial inquiring contacts, but also during our stay and for follow up calls with her. The pool was lovely as was the neighborhood and having off street parking was an added benefit! This place is close to restaurants, shops, and a Starbucks. You feel like you’re in a private oasis because it’s so peaceful and quiet. It met our needs and we would return in the future.

Quaint and Quiet!

  • 5 of 5

This was just what we needed for our 10th Anniversary getaway. The suite was cozy and clean, the grounds were lush and peaceful, and the experience was quiet and relaxing. Everything we hoped for a weekend away from it all. Elle was lovely to speak with and made the check in/check out process as simple as can be. We will be back!

Lovely home in the hill.

Elle was very sweet when we ran into her and very responsive to a request we made.

We would certainly stay there again, should the opportunity arise.

Thanks Elle!

Not really a romantic getaway...

  • 2 of 5

My husband and I came to stay here, thinking we were renting a condo, when in fact we were staying in the bedroom of a house. We could hear the t.v. in the room connected to ours, people talking on the phone, and thus knew everything we did was most likely heard as well. No privacy. The microwave plug didn't even reach the outlet so we had to put it on the floor every time we wanted to make something; the first time we plugged the microwave in, it tripped the breaker and our power went out. Overall, not a very friendly, accommodating, or enjoyable place to stay. We left two days early and just went home.

Owner's Response: These guests did come and stay at the Enchanting Suite in Montecito which is described in the website as a suite attached to a large Estate. I never said it was a condo. A Suite is a bedroom and bathroom. The Suite is very private with it's own separate entrance. The Suite is now pretty much sound proof from the main house. I did have a contractor correct this, although previously, the sounds one might hear were very muted. Yes, not known to me, the cleaning crew had moved the microwave. I have moved it back to where it should be and it plugs into the outlet easily. Even though I have forced air vented heating throughout the Estate, I supply an electric heater in the Suite for guests who would like extra heat. The guests then used the microwave and heater at the same time which did trip the breaker. The guests rang my doorbell at 11 pm. I had to get out of bed and switch the breaker back on. I have never had this happen before and it was a new heater. I have attached the heater to a different outlet and fixed the problem. I apologized to the guest for the inconvenience and have asked them what I can do to make this up to them. I have not heard back from them.
