I have been renting rooms in my large Montecito Stone Carriage house for over 10 Years. I enjoy meeting new people from all over the world.
The rooms are spacious and comfortably set up to make your stay enjoyable. Close to restaurants, etc.
There is a kitchenette in the larger of the 2 bedrooms to use.
Mini Fridge, Coffee Maker, Tea kettle, microwaive and toaster in your room. Dishes, etc. also. Small kitchenette in smaller bdrm.
I have a 1 bedroom option available also, here is the link:
You have a private entrance to come and go as you please and private parking. Access to pool but it is not heated. Sitting areas by pool and on patio are quiet and spacious. Barbecues by the pool are all year long. The rooms are on the 2nd floor accessible by stairs only.
Interaction with guests
I will greet you when you arrive so that you get the lay of the land and feel comfortable and then you are on your own and come and go as you please. You are private from my part of the house with halls and doors so that we won't disturb each other, but if you need something you can call or text me and I will help with whatever I can.
This wonderful neighborhood is very quiet and within a rock walled community. You may hear people outside walking or talking since it is a house, but all in all it is very private and serene. You can walk right outside your door and enjoy nature, either walk around beautiful Riven Rock or use the local hiking trails or just head to the various beaches not far away.
You need a car here in Riven Rock since we are up in the foothills. We have great restaruants in Montecito, S.B., Summerland and Carpenteria and I will leave a list of those things.
Other things to note
This is a stone house so it is sketchy whether your cell phone will work here. AT&T and T Mobile works. Verizon is not so good. You may have to walk down the road or by the pool.
I have a very friendly dog so don't worry if my Jack Russell, Otto, runs over to you to say hi. He is convinced everyone comes here just to see him.
Close to Hot Springs and Cold Springs Trail and many other hiking trails. Mountain biking area.
7 minutes from Santa Barbara
10 minutes from Carpenteria
5 minutes to Summerland
Near Beach - 5 minute drive. Miramar, Biltmore and East Beach or for surfing Bates Beach
Near Ojai - 30 to 45 minute drive.
Near Santa Ynez wine country- 45 minute drive.
This is a place for people who want a quiet and comfortable room or rooms in Montecito. This is not a party house or a business retreat since there is no kitchen or living room for your use. There is a lovely sitting area outside.
I have 2 rooms with quiet and respectful student tenants down the hall from these rooms that are very respectful and I also live here at the other end of the house. I have never had a problem with noise or with Airbnb and that's what makes it so fun and something I want to continue.
ATT cell phones work in this thick walled stone house but all other carriers are sketchy. You walk a short distance from the house and it works. Messages will sometimes work when phone won't. You can pick up internet so email on your computer will work if you need to be in contact often.
Pets must be house trained, non-barkers and well behaved. I am an animal lover so please ask and we will consider it.
Also we will consider babies but it is a house with other people so I must consider everyone. I adore children so this is not a definite no.
No Smoking inside or near the house.
I am a Friendly, upbeat, happy, organized women that loves people. I have rented to students and rented my whole house on airbnb before and had a great experience.
I live a healthy California lifestyle and enjoy where I live, I think you will enjoy it too.
Montino speaks 5 languages so if you need that you will have to speak to him. I am the typical American speaking only English.
