Lovely, inviting newly-decorated and furnished “cottage” studio on our verdant Montecito property surrounded by oak trees, plants, flowers and colorful bougainvillea. Cottage is full of natural light, a patio with comfortable furniture to enjoy your breakfast or sip a glass of wine in the evening while viewing the stars. Butterfly Beach is a 10-minute walk away and sauntering along the beach is a pure delight. Popular Coast Village Road is lined with fine restaurants, shops and bakeries.

The space
A cozy clean cottage studio, newly furnished, with bathroom (tub shower), and kitchen with full stove and refrigerator. A queen-size bed with lots of pillows and a comforter. Cozy couch and a 42” TV. Best of all a lovely garden patio.

TRANSPARENCY: The good news is that there is no daily parking fee, no resort fee, no sales or use taxes, no tipping. The bad news is that the County of Santa Barbara treats Airbnbs the same as hotels, thus imposing a 12% Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) and a South Coast Tourism Business Improvement District Fee (TBID) of $4 per day. Airbnb should include the tax on the price it quotes you. So, for example, a $175 price, if you add the 12% tax ($21) plus the $4 fee, is actually going to come to $200. Just saying.

Where you’ll be

Montecito/Santa Barbara, California, United States

We are in a residential neighborhood that is just 50 yards from Coast Village Road with its many shops and cafes as well as convenience stores such as CVS and Vons. However, be aware that studio is not in a remote setting far from any urban life. Cars and trucks do go by on our road and though the neighborhood is pretty quiet there are occasional sounds from adjacent homes. If you desire a remote sylvan silent retreat you would be wise to find a setting in the mountains. Any places near the beach are going to have some ambient noise. Even the Biltmore and Miramar hotels are next to the Amtrak line and Highway 101. Just so you know. Oh, and there are earplugs and a white noise device available just in case :)
