This is a lovely, sunny room in my house along with a few other quiet rentals. I also live here.

It's close to all that Santa Barbara has to offer and is a retreat after a day of exersize, sight seeing, shopping, College hunting, etc. or whatever you came to S.B. to do.

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.
A Rock walled neighborhood. You wake up to the birds chirping, frogs at night in the summer. Other people live here so you may hear voices and doors and normal house noises, but it is serene for the most part.
You will need a car. The bus runs seldom in this area. I think it is 2 times a day- morning and evening and that is a 15 minute walk to it.
Other Things to Note
Near Santa Ynez for wine tasting-45 min., surf spots- 10 min., hiking trails- walking, Ojai- 30 min.,
Carpenteria, Summerland for antiquing. S.B. town is 10 min. Beach is 5 min.
I have a friendly dog so don't worry if my Jack Russell, Otto, runs over to you to say hi. He can't help himself from believing that you are here to see him.
This is a place for people who want a quiet and comfortable room in Montecito. This is not a party house or a business retreat since there is no living area for your use.
I do have 2 rooms with quiet and respectful student tentants down the hall from these rooms and I also live here. I have never had a problem with them or my airbnb rentals which is why I continue to enjoy doing this in my house.
No Smoking inside or near house.
Rita greeted us at the entrance to her home and made us feel welcome immediately. The bedroom was charming and clean with a large bathroom attached. We loved our stay in Montecito and Santa Barbara. Thank you, Rita!!!
The Carraige House sits in a great natural setting with plenty of nooks and crannies from which to enjoy the out of doors including near the pool, the lily pond, the fire circle of this property. Although there are many other houses in this enclave, you feel like you are out in the country and the house is so surrounded by oak trees, there is a sense of seclusion. Rita made us feel welcome and showed us to our spacious room which has an old bath with claw feet and new double sink. There is a refrigerator stocked with some drinks, a coffee pot and electric kettle and a giant bowl of fruit and snacks in the room. The bed was comfortable and the place was very quiet at night. You're on your own for breakfast but a common area outside the room provided more variety of cereals. Be sure to get complete directions because map quest and google maps don't give enough specifics and we had to call to actually find the place. Also, cell service can be spotty depending on your carrier. Great walks in the area and yet you are ten minutes from Montecito Village.
My grand daughter and I had a magical time! Our host was so friendly and accomodating. The room was clean, the king size bed was super comfy and the grounds around the house were gorgeous.
Rita and Montino are very hospitable and thoughtful. The unit was comfortable, clean and well stocked. The area is beautiful and serene. It is a wonderful place to stay.
Rita's Carriage House was clean, quiet and comfortable and she was a thoughtful hostess. We didn't get to spend much time at the house but enjoyed early morning hikes on nearby trails. This was a nice retreat while we were in town for some events.
Delightful experience -- a space and hospitality full of charm and personality. I love the personal details, from a full bowl of organic fruit awaiting our arrival, to every amenity imaginable at our disposal. I want to recreate that bathroom in my own home! Extraordinarily quiet, comfortable, and friendly. I will definitely be back ... Next time to hike the nearby trails and relax by the inviting pool. Thank you Rita for your kindness and charming personality.
Our stay at Rita and Montino's was above and beyond expectation. The location was a peaceful haven, surrounded by beautiful plants, trees, waterfalls, and birds singing. The room exceeded our expectation. They gave attention to every tiny detail, and we kept discovering little things they had thought of to make anyone's stay far above average. It was very very clean and well-stocked with all sorts of amenities. Montino was a perfect host, also going above and beyond in supplying information and help however we needed. I would without a doubt stay there again.

About the Host, Rita
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.
