Wonderful,quiet, and clean place. Yang and Hao were gracious hosts who offered us advice on local restaurants and sights. I would highly recommend this place. Thanks Yang and Hao!!
We were thrilled with Yang and Hao's accomodations in Montecito! The rooms are charming, extremely clean, private, and serene. We loved that the home is tucked away in the hills of Montecito, but within close proximity to the village in Montecito and Butterfly Beach. The room has a cozy fireplace, and the accomodations are better than many bed and breakfasts in the area. Yang and Hao are welcoming hosts who are easily available to assist and do a wonderful job of meeting your expectations. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Montecito.
Yang was a wonderful host, and also definitely let us have our privacy - the perfect balance! The space was just as described/pictured, very quiet, serene and homey. I'd definitely return and would recommend to anyone looking for a great, secluded spot in Montecito.
Yang was an absolutely amazing host. The space is incredible, just as wonderful as all the reviews had promised it would be. Yang had left us a bottle of champagne, and even said good bye to us on our way out in the morning. If you're looking for a private, romantic get away, this is perfect.
