Seaside Cottage - Romantic Haven by the Beach
Embrace the Montecito Beach lifestyle with your first step into Seaside Cottage.
Completed updated and restored in 2008, no detail was left untouched in this romantic escape. The designer furnishings, new kitchen , new bath, and cozy master bedroom all combine to make this the best in Montecito beach living. Authentic antique touches are everywhere; including 1880's stained glass windows, vintage Roycroft 1903 hand made chandelier, and a 1903 electric fireplace with glowing glass embers.
The beauty and comfort continue as you walk outside to the creek side sandstone patio area. The river-rock fireplace can be used to warm you on chilly winter nights or just to create a mood for peaceful night time conversation. To the right is the colorful Tuscany inspired lion's-head fountain, crafted on-site by talented artisans. Lounging and dining are easy in the quality hardwood teak furniture. A grand 200 year-old sycamore tree offers partial shade during the heat of the day. There is an herb garden which is flanked by Meyer lemon and Tangelo citrus trees and which provides rosemary, thyme, chives, and spearmint to be used in the gourmet kitchen.
The brand new kitchen boasts a custom cobalt blue Viking range, new Fisher-Paykel refrigerator featuring a fast chilling wine rack, dishwasher, and many other amenities. Fresh cold drinking water is provided by the Everpure micro-filltration system. The surfaces are beautiful; natural maple wood cabinets are contrasted with colorful and detailed tile work. Even doing the dishes is a pleasure while looking over the patio to the creekbed below.
The living areas are colorful and comfortable. The bedroom feels like a fine hotel room and if you want to shut out the sunshine in the early morning or for an afternoon siesta, just use the remote control to operate the "Solar powered" shade in the skylight. The new bathroom has a special porcelain, oversized claw-foot tub and all new fixtures. The Living Room and Dining room are well designed and offer plenty of room for lounging and dining.
Two of Montecito's best beaches, Miramar and Hammond's, are just a 1/2 block away. Montecito Lower Village is an easy 2 minute drive. Santa Barbara, with its many attractions and beaches, is an easy 10 minute drive.
Seaside Cottage is certain to satisfy your need for the perfect beach getaway. Please consider it for your next Montecito escape.

Time flew by while staying at this adorable place! We truly enjoyed our cottage! We are certain others will enjoy as well, and treated as respectful as it deserves. Others will definitely find this home a paradise for themselves. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
My wife and I spent the month of Feb. in the Seaside Cottage and really enjoyed the experience. The location is wonderful, as it is a short walk to the beach and very convenient to the Village. We loved Montecito and Santa Barbara. We will be back for sure!
This little cottage exceeded our expectations in every way. It is full of charm and so adorable. The location is perfect; the gardens both front and back adorable. So quiet and peaceful. Love the lemon trees! I was here with my two daughters celebrating my birthday and we had so much fun. Thank you!
We had a wonderful stay at seaside cottage by Paradise Retreats in Santa Barbara. The beach house is cute with seaside decorating themes throughout, wonderful patio with fireplace and fountain, overlooking a creek. The Cottage is 5 minutes' walk from the beach and another 20 minutes along the beach to Four Seasons hotel Biltmore and Monticeto Village. A great stay to explore the best of Santa Barbara. We also enjoyed the well-equipped kitchen for cooking !
We've stayed at Seaside Cottage before. Love it's decor and charming ambience. All perfect except double bed still has a very squeaky frame!
What a delight to live at an exclusive part of California beach area for a week!
The charm of Seaside Cottage jumps out at you before you walk through the front door!
The blue and white kitchen has state of the art equipment...enticing you to stay home and cook or barbecue! I throughly enjoyed the freestanding bath tub on numerous occasions.
The living room and dining room have plenty of room to entertain. We actually invited over our neighbors next door. The terrace was well used with the barbecue, fountain, fireplace was well used during the day and evening.
I would heartily recommend staying at Seaside Cottage!
We loved every minute of staying in the Seaside Cottage. This was our 45 Wedding Anniversary.
We spent the evenings sitting outside by the fireplace with a glass of wine, listening to the creek behind us and the frogs. They were singing away.
Walked down to the beach in the daytime. It was only a block away. What a wonderful weekend we had.
The cottage is perfect for a couple. Very quiet area. Good Offstreet parking. The cottage was spotless. The kitchen was full stocked for cooking, lots of spices were there.
The bathtub is hug. It really is a bath tub of two.
Again we just loved it all.
