About this listing


A Special Place. Romantic, Quiet, Tucked Away.
A refuge from the City, in a safe neighborhood, minutes from Santa Barbara, and world class pristine beaches!

The space

So close to all the amenities and activities that Montecito and Santa Barbara has to offer, yet so far away from 'tourbillon d'activity'. Relax on Adirondack chairs, look out to the mountains, or listen to the birds that flock to the mature gardens surrounding the cottage. Sit back after a long day of exploring the area on the patio chaise lounges, with a glass of local Santa Barbara wine. Or take a stroll around the neighborhood and discover the unique row of cottages that are full of history and charm.

The Guest Cottage has a detached bedroom pavilion with a Queen size bed, and Egyptian cotton sheets adding to the luxury. This sweet and tranquil bedroom is surrounded by tall windows and french doors, opening up to the night sky. Many a falling star has been sighted while dozing off in this special cottage bedroom. A full bathroom is just 10 steps away, along a flagstone path, to the main Guest Cottage.

Additionally, a comfy Double size sofabed, occupies the Main Cottage Living Room area if you have another guest.

There is a Full Bathroom, with Shower, Tub, and Skylight in the Main Guest Cottage.

The Kitchenette area is equipped with a small refrigerator, Oven,Coffee & Tea Maker, Microwave, Toaster, Dishes.

The Living Room area has a Flat Screen TV, with local and nationwide programming. If available, a Record Player will be set up for your analog enjoyment, with a selection of vinyl to choose from. A few select DVD movies and books will also be available for use.

The beautifully private Garden has a relaxing sitting area, facing the mountains, and near a mature 60 year old Avocado Tree (which produces the BEST avocados you've ever tasted, and free for the taking)!! A great place for afternoon Tea.

You'll feel so at home in this sweet cottage, that you'll never want to leave...

Owner lives in front cottage on property. Your privacy is completely respected but she will respond to any questions or requests you may have. Otherwise, she keeps to herself and only interacts if you desire.

This is a quiet residential area, with rows of older cottages built between the 20's and 40's, early California, Quintessential Montecito style!

There is a city bus which stops 1/2 block away, and will take you into the heart of SB. Otherwise, there is easy access to the 101 by car.

A wonderful rustic retreat. Excellent location in gorgeous Montecito. If you want a cozy hangout for forays into the busier parts of SB, this is a perfect option.

It was a very relaxing and pleasant time. The interior of the house is clean, and was maintained. We enjoyed the area and there was good communication with the owner. I would recommend this rental.

Suzanne's place is absolutely adorable and charming. It is very quiet, private, peaceful, and relaxing. The location is easy to get to, and close to everything the Santa Barbara area has to offer. Suzanne is an excellent host: kind, generous and available, yet gives you all the privacy you'd like. We'd consider ourselves lucky to be able to stay here again!
