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!
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.
Additionally, a comfy Double size sofabed, occupies the Main Cottage Living Room area. Plenty of space and comfort for 2 more Guests.
There is a Full Bathroom, with Shower, Tub, and Skylight in the Main 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 the little Orchard House, 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.

Suzanne's cottage is an oasis of calmness and style, with a beautiful private patio. Would come back any time. Thank you, Suzanne!
Loved staying in the Montecito Guest House. Suzanne was a huge help when we found an injured crow. She knew exactly how to handle the situation and while we were ready to put our vacation on hold to help the crow, Suzanne came to the rescue. She kept us updated on the crow and I'm happy to report it's going to be fine! Thank you Suzanne, we had a wonderful two nights and I wish we could move in! :)
