Best location in Montecito!
My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights and were very pleased. Extremely clean, private, and comfortable. Exactly as described. We enjoyed walking around Montecito from the property as well as exploring downtown Santa Barbara which is just a quick drive North.
My friend and I stayed here while attending the Santa Barbara Film Festival and we absolutely LOVED it! The cottage is adorable, clean, bright, comfortable, and quite. The location was perfect for the activities we enjoy, such as hiking, breakfast at Jeannine's in downtown Montecito, and close proximity to downtown.
An added bonus were Elaine's two adorable Corgi's who would wander into the cottage to say hello and receive a belly rub. :)
I'll definitely return to this gem!
Elaine's beautiful Montecito guest house was the perfect base for our two-day trip around the Santa Barbara area. The space was exactly as advertised: spacious, impeccably clean, and wonderfully lit - not to mention the surrounding lush garden. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the fully-equipped kitchenette allowed us to prepare meals with ease. We would more than happily come back to Elaine's again!
Perfect spot in a beautiful neighborhood - couldn't ask for a more tranquil location for a getaway. Elaine was super hospitable. Would recommend highly to anyone!
Elaine's guest house was perfect and exactly what she said it is on the listing. It's a great little cottage on her beautiful property behind hedges, We never saw Elaine, just the two adorable dogs that greeted us every time we drove up. You can't ask for a better setting or a more comfortable place to stay.
Elaine's guesthouse is full of light and very relaxing. It was perfect after a long-day exploring the sites and sounds of Santa Barbara. Every detail was well thought out, organic, and authentic.
She is a phenomenal host and was incredibly responsive to all of our questions. If I am ever in Montecito/Santa Barbara again, I hope this place is open.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Elaine's guest house because we were attending a wedding at San Ysidro Ranch over the weekend. Elaine's place was the perfect place to stay. It is located in a great area and close to everything in Montecito/Santa Barbara. The house was cute and had everything you needed. I recommend anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Montecito, to stay at Elaine's guest house.
Exactly as advertised. Elaine even left us a bottle of wine and some crescent rolls for the morning. Very private. Highly recommended!
Great house, exactly as advertised.
Great place and very convenient location. It was a quick drive into SB, a nice neighborhood to run through down to the beach, a very short drive to the beautiful San Ysidro trail hike, and is very close to a fab market (flatbread to chocolate truffles)... Excellent light and a comfortable bed made it a nice get-away. Elaine was very flexible on check-in and out, and answered texts promptly. We would stay again.
