About Vicky Linker

My husband Gary and I have two children and built this cottage four years ago so I could pursue my love of sculpture. I use one room in the cottage for my work leaving the remaining 650 square feet to share with guests. Our family and friends have enjoyed the peacefulness and beauty of the cottage and now we are offering it to the public on a limited basis. I do not work in my studio when we have guests ensuring that you will have complete privacy during your stay with us. The cottage is a stand alone building on our beautiful one acre property.

Vicky Linker purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Vicky Linker chose Montecito

Montecito has many areas of quiet tranquility and beauty. Gary and I chose this property to raise our family. We welcome you to enjoy the gardens, lawns, fruit trees and recreational facilities.

What makes this cottage unique

The Cottage has several very endearing amenities including a beautiful sink that we purchased in Puerta Vallerta, handpainted tile in the kitchen, bathroom and fireplace, hardwood flooring, special lighting fixtures, as well as views of the mountains, backyard gardens, lawn and fruit trees.

We will definitely be returning to this cottage and beautiful Montecito. With golf, the beach and wonderful restaurants close by, it's a great getaway destination. Vicky and Gary are very welcoming and attentive. They are perfect hosts.

Beautiful, clean, & comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful cottage. Gary & Vicky were gracious hosts & the location was very private, yet so close to town. The Mexican food was outstanding at Los Arroyos & breakfast just as good at Jeannine's only about a mile away. We would love to come back someday. Stan & Tiffany....Mesa, AZ.

Lovely!

Beautiful Casita. Cool and surrounded by lovely tress and the chirping of birds. Gary and Vicky could not have been more hospitable. So close to the hills and ocean. We will be back

Immaculate and Private

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend and the place was immaculate. Vicky and her husband were great hosts and, after a friendly meet and greet, gave us complete privacy. There was a thorough binder with restaurant and sightseeing recommendations that we made good use of. The property is new and was built with excellent craftsmanship. Lots of light, new furniture, very comfortable bed, clean kitchen with high-quality cookware and appliances, great bathroom, etc. Although it is a "guest house," it does not feel like one. The property is situated so a large hedge separates you from the main house and, when looking out the large French doors, you see a beautiful lawn and garden. Great, quiet neighborhood with easy beach and freeway access. Short drive (one exit) to the main drag in Montecito, which has excellent restaurants. Also a short drive into Santa Barbara. We will be coming back.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This "retreat" is accurately described. I loved walking in the neighborhood and even to the Montecito Y for lap swimming. I heard frogs chorusing at night, saw quail and rabbits run through the garden and felt close to nature even though I was also close to downtown Santa Barbara. The hosts were friendly but unobtrusive. The cottage was well set up. I particularly liked the books of local walks/hikes provided.

Located in beautiful Montecito you are moments away from tourist attractions, beaches or mountain hikes. Within one mile of the cottage you can find a variety of fine restaurants and high end shopping. Nearby Santa Barbara has more exciting visitor destinations, shopping areas, leisurely walking or hiking trails and restaurants. Our wharf and waterfront provide a lovely panoramic view of the city. You also have easy access to the Santa Ynez wineries. We are ninety miles from Los Angeles, 145 miles from Hearst Castle and 300 miles from the Bay Area.
