About the property

Casita Azul - A Montecito Hidden Gem Near Butterfly Beach

This duplex was designed by architect William Painter, and this unit is a chic pied-a-terre with ambiance that is both warm and sophisticated. Enter through a hidden garden gate to a lush and cozy oasis with a tropical "secret garden" feel. The bright cobalt blue door is just the beginning of colorful design choices that play against the interior's neutral palette.

Newly remodeled, the home's interior sparkles with all new furnishings and finishes. Spectacular floor to ceiling windows are the central focus of the main Living space. The Living Room has a cozy fireplace and lovely view to the outside patio.

The Kitchen, with PJ Milligan pine cabinetry, also features granite counter tops. A nearby nook provide the convenience of brand new washer and dryer. The Master Suite is "loft style" and open to the Living Room below. Upstairs, there is also a second guest Bedroom and Hall Bathroom with a luxurious spa tub.

Dine outdoors, or walk to Coast Village Road to "Lucky's" or "Montecito Cafe" for a great meal. With an ideal location, this home is also a short 5-minute walk to the Four Seasons Biltmore and World Famous Butterfly Beach. Dining on Coast Village Road is easy and also just a quick walk to great food, coffee, cocktails and more! The Friday Farmer's Market is a great way to get acquainted with locals and sample organic produce - bring some home and create a wonderful meal!

Escape to this cozy spot in the heart of Montecito!

Great location! Right around the corner to the Village, the shore and freeway. A secluded spot and comfortable residence.

Beautiful home, simply charming!

  • 5 of 5

I had a lovely “ car-less “ stay at Casita Azul. Two girlfriends & I took the train to Santa Barbara, two of us coming from Orange County

and the other From San Franciso . We ubered over to the Casita from the train station and walked everywhere else. The location was perfect ….

Literally a five minute walk to Butterfly Beach and the lovely Biltmore where we had drinks overlooking a fabulous Ocean view. Coast village Road was also a five minute walk where their are numerous restaurants.

We liked observing the “ scene “ at Luckys ! The Casita was comfortable , spotless and the kitchen well stocked. We had everything we needed. We will return !

An enchanting place!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely property! We truly enjoyed our week stay in the cozy and warm atmosphere of Casita Azul. Everything was top notch and well thought out. It is truly a well-appointed high-end rental…and the fireplace was a bonus! The location can’t be beat with the amenities of the Four Seasons, Coast Village Road with it’s numerous restaurants and Butterfly Beach such a short walk away…. ! We hope to be back to enjoy Casita Azul again and again...and again...!!!

A Wonderful Escape

  • 5 of 5

I loved the condominium. It was so nice to be able to walk to the beach and Coast Village Rd. The restaurants along Coast Village Road are delicious and the shops are lovely. I had so much fun. The slight sound of the train at night was so romantic and made me think of far away places. I can't wait to return. What a wonderful escape. Just what I needed.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I spent a month in Casita Azul. It has a great location, a very comfortable bed and is well equipped with good quality linens and kitchen equipment. While it is only a little over a block from the railroad tracks, and the trains do blow their horns whenever they pass, it is only during the day, which was not a problem. Highway 101 also is just over a block away, but there was no freeway noise. The street next to the house, however, is a very busy street and it does create a lot of noise. My biggest complaint, however, is the arrangement with the management company. We were required to give them a damage/security deposit equal to the months rent when we booked (September 15, 2015). The rental payment was due December 11, 2015. Our stay was from March 3, 2016 to April 2 and we did not get our damage/security deposit back until April 19. In other words, the management company had use of our damage/security deposit for over seven months. I have rented many times in the U.S. and Europe, and I've never had to pay a damage deposit that large, nor have we had to pay it in advance. Additionally, we've always received it back upon our departure. This certainly tempered my opinion of staying at Casita Azul.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at Casita Azul! We appreciate your feedback. The home is located near the Lower Village area of Montecito, which is a great place to walk to for restaurants, shopping, etc. However, this does mean there is more street noise than if the home was located farther away from the Lower Village area. We do require a larger deposit up front for reservations that are for 30+ nights as yours was. That being said, we try our best to get the deposit returned to you as quickly as possible, and we return the majority of our deposits within 7 days of check-out after we receive the cleaning/inspection report. We apologize that it took longer than normal to return the deposit to you, and we thank you for letting us know about this! We strive for the best service to all our guests, so your feedback is much appreciated.
