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.

It is a real privilege to be able to a guest in this lovely historic carriage house with its unique gardens. The pool and various outdoor lounging areas are incredible and so relaxing. The creative host and hostess are charming and add to enjoyment of this wonderful getaway. Mitzi

My daughter and I had a wonderful stay at Rita's place! She has EVERYTHING you could want or need. The room is spacious, comfortable and unique. The bed is like a cloud. The bathroom is lovely. There is a fridge, micro and small kitchenette. The location is lovely, private and peaceful, 5 minutes from Montecito and 10 minutes from Santa Barbara. We had a birthday celebration and Rita made it special for us! Montino welcomed us in the middle of the night as our flight had been cancelled and we had a late arrival. We can't say enough about our (URL HIDDEN) was fabulous! Thank you Rita and Montino!

Rita was such a gracious host! She was there to greet us upon arrival, toured the room and property with us and then left us settle in, letting us know, she was close by if we needed her for anything. She was also in contact with us prior to our trip giving great travel recommendations as well as where to eat when we got into town! The room was super clean, cute and very quaint. Although the house wasn't close public transportation and pretty secluded (as stated in the description), it was still very close to downtown and beaches! We felt very welcomed and looking forward to staying there again in the future!! Thanks Rita!

Many folks have already commented on the beauty and comfort of Rita's and Montino's home, and I second all the wonderful things others had to say. They have thought of everything to make travelers as comfortable as possible. I drag my own pillow everywhere I go but didn't need to this time as the bed was SO cozy. We slept like babies in the peaceful, lush setting. Another reviewer commented on the slightly noisy college students who room there, but we found them delightful and perfectly quiet. Rita filled the rooms with everything a person could want from magazines and books to 1/2 and 1/2 in the refrigerator and even a bottle of red nail polish in case you want to get dolled up. Do you prefer your coffee from an automatic drip machine or a French press? Take your pick! The uniqueness of this property will remain one of my favorite memories: the carriage house once was part of a large estate with a fascinating history. The estate is surrounded by a low rock wall and rock bridges span the creek running through the property. The building of these structures gave local workers jobs during the Depression Era, and you can discover lots of interesting facts about how and why the area was created in the first place with a bit of Googling. Spending time in such a special place made our stay in Montecito especially fun. The darling dogs, lovely landscaping, and gracious hosts added to the pretty, comfortable room to make for a fabulous experience. If you want a change from cookie-cutter lodgings, this home will do the trick!

Rita and Montino were wonderful hosts! They have such a beautiful home and surrounding grounds. The room has everything you need, and my wife certainly enjoyed a bubble bath in the claw-foot tub. We were in town for a friend's wedding, and it's a short 10-minute Uber drive into the heart of Santa Barbara. So it was great to be so close to the downtown scene but also be able to escape into seclusion. Only wish we could have spent more time hanging out at the pool!

This place is a sanctuary located in the hills of Montecito. I went to SB to meet up with friends for the weekend. After busy and fun filled days, if a nice to end them at this quiet and secluded sanctuary that Rita provided. Check in and out was easy. I will be back!
