We were so pleased that we chose this particular place to stay in Montecito. The grounds are beautiful & peaceful. The cottage interior is perfectly designed (this opinion comes from a retired interior designer). Sumptuous sheets, very comfortable bed, very clean, well stocked with everything one could possibly want, including an incredible library, delicious muffins. I could go & on... Don't hesitate to stay here! Liz & Tim PS dinner at the Stonehouse is an extravagant MUST!

We had an absolutely perfect experience staying in Richard and Marjorie's guest house. Communication was clear and friendly in advance of our stay, and the cottage was even move lovely than pictured. Impeccable and comfortable Santa Barbara style. The cottage is perfectly clean and everything works well. The grounds are gorgeous and quiet -- scents of eucalyptus and orange blossoms. We spent one of our days walking all around the gorgeous neighborhood -- to the upper and lower villages of Montecito and all the way down to the beach. We highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again in the future.
