Spring House exceeds customary expectations, and is a luxury experience from original art to thread count to Viking appliances.

The formal dining room seats six with room for additional tables and an adjacent bar with six bar stools. The main kitchen is adjacent to the dining room in an open floor plan style sharing the warmth of a gas fueled automatic fireplace and a flat screen tv. The kitchen is appointed with Viking appliances, granite counter tops and a soaring ceiling with skylights. A glass door and pass through windows over a farmhouse sink give way to a gracious brick patio decorated with potted plants and dense landscaping where the third of four fountains gurgles while you dine or relax. The BBQ is located here. The media room also serves as a fourth bedroom with complete privacy; it houses a 47' flat screen, a second fireplace, a queen sleeper sofa with additional memory foam feather bed, and a massage chair. The fifth bedroom contains an abbreviated kitchen with sink, mini-fridge and microwave, and a full bathroom. The wall of windows in this bedroom folds open to a lanai with treadmill, fountain, jacuzzi and sauna.

It includes a huge walk-in closet with built-in dresser, an en suite bathroom with travertine counters and floors and a dressing table.

The Butterfly Beach area of Montecito affords our guests a unique and rare opportunity to enjoy many aspects of town on foot. Given how much time most of us spend in our cars, we felt that this was a special gift we wanted to share with visitors to Santa Barbara.
Walking virtually next door and being on the gorgeous grounds of the Four Seasons Biltmore is certainly special, whether lingering over Sunday brunch or having a facial and massage at the spa. Afterwards, a walk on the beach feels just right. Sometimes after sleeping in, it's fun to walk over to Jeannine's All-American Bakery and sit outside for a delicious breakfast or lunch. And of course, when we want to see and be seen, we hit the night time scene at Lucky's, the hip Montecito steakhouse owned by Gene Montesano of Lucky Jean's fame.
My family came here for my graduation from UCSB. The house gave them a great first impression of Santa Barbara and they loved staying here.

We booked Spring House because we were attending a wedding at the Four Seasons, and we were traveling with children. The location was perfect - easy walk or short drive to the hotel and beach, easy access to attractions (the kids loved the zoo!), close to shopping and dining in Montecito, and a quick drive or Uber to State Street. We all had plenty of room, both inside and outside. We enjoyed the peaceful gardens and the spacious and well decorated interior spaces. The house is so comfortable that we all felt at home right away.
This was a great house. Plenty of room for the family. Easy access to the beach and nearby shops and restaurants. Betsy was very accommodating with our schedule and provided great recommendations for dining and shopping.
I usually don't write reviews but for this house I had to make an exception. The house was spacious and beautiful. My family had the best time and will always remember it. The pictures do not do the house justice. The yards were wonderful. There was plenty of different space to talk and relax throughout the property. Next time I need to rent a place in Santa Barbara I will rent this house first.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at the "Springhouse"in Montecito. There was plenty of room so that the 3 couples on vacation had plenty of privacy and our 2 dogs had sufficient room to roam the outdoor gardens.
The location is very central to all we had planned as we could jog the coastal path in the morning and walk to town for lunch and/or dinner. Downtown Santa Barbara was a quick Uber away and we had a great time dining there at night and stopping for a nightcap at the Honor Bar or Lucky's before a short walk home.
I would certainly recommend this spacious, beautiful home to those who are traveling to this area. I know I will be back!
This is a beautiful home and a perfect location if you are attending a function at the Biltmore Four Seasons.
Each bedroom has its own exit and patio or deck. We had our whole family there and we all felt there was enough room to enjoy ourselves and also get the privacy we needed when necessary .
I hope we are fortunate enough to stay there again in the future.
Elizabeth is excellent to deal with so be sure and book soon!
We gave this home 5 stars because the home itself simply overwhelmed us and easily overcame any local inconsequential issues. The home was simply beautiful. The decor sophisticated yet supremely comfortable. The sleeping quarters clean and comfortable. The view from each window serene, different, and lush. The room layout ideal. The separate and multiple decks and patios areas to congregate or for individual contemplation were abundant. The home was impeccable inside and out. The home was within a short walking distance to Butterfly Beach, Four Seasons Resort, Downtown Montecito, and a short drive to Downtown Santa Barbara. Ms. Winthrope was so accommodating and cordial from initial contact and during our entire stay that she enhanced our entire experience beyond description. Ms. Winthrop simply did not overlook a single detail. Our entire family just raved about the home. The only issues we experienced were an occasional train whistle since the home is located near the railroad tracks and a hum from the traffic on the 101. However, from our perspective, these issues were inconsequential compared to the overwhelming positives offered by this outstanding home, and by Ms. Wintrop herself. We simply fell in love with this home. We look forward to coming back again soon. Highly recommended.
