Richard's place was gorgeous. It's a peaceful home on top of a hill with lots of trees. The cottage itself was beautiful. It had lots of books, w a nice tv, a nook, a comfortable bed, a nice bathroom. They left out some muffins, chocolate, tea, and coffee available for me; along with a container of water. They gave me plenty of privacy and parking was easy. The space is great for getting away from the world and relaxing.

This is a perfect romantic getaway place! Very private and romantic. Very close to Montecito restaurants. The place is perfect in every way. Richard was very helpful with all the questions. The check-in and check-out couldn't be any easier.

Richard and Marjorie's guest house looks exactly like the photos. Very quiet location, spotless, wonderful location ... excellent host, available to answer questions, but guests have their privacy. Coffee, water, fruit, little refrigerator ... excellent experience. Highly recommend staying here. Best, Cathy & Hoss

I would absolutely stay here again. The property and cottage were beautifully maintained, the decor inviting and chic, and the hosts gracious. It is a short drive to downtown or the beach but feels like its own, quiet paradise. Great experience!

This was a beautiful and tranquil cottage nestled in the foothills of Montecito and just a few minutes drive to Butterfly beach, where my wife and I love to go. We spent two nights at the cottage for our 1 year wedding anniversary, and it was the perfect getaway. We loved this cottage for several reasons. First, it was quiet and peaceful. We woke up the first morning and enjoyed our coffee and muffins (which they provided) while looking out the big bay window and listening to the birds. Second, the cleanliness and comfortability of the cottage. The bed was so comfy, and the bathroom/shower were spotless. It's such a nice place to stay and it really had a homey feel to it. We never met the owners Richard and Marjorie, but I know they are very hospitable and generous people by the way they take care of the property and welcome people to stay. They also gave us our privacy, but were always a text message away. Third, the location. You get a feeling of seclusion and privacy, but it's only a few minutes to the village in Montecito and only 10 minutes from downtown Santa Barbara. There isn't a kitchen, but there's a coffee maker, electric kettle, a few dishes and plenty of silverware. If you plan on cooking, then this isn't the right place. Other than that, we absolutely loved our stay here and will indeed return in the future.

Richard and Marjorie's place was delightful! Situated in a quiet, gated neighborhood with beautiful mountain views, the cottage was the perfect spot to get away from the busyness of city life. Perfectly clean and very well decorated. Thanks!
