About this listing
This recently built comfy, one bedroom cottage is located in Montecito, one and a half miles from the beach and three miles to the beautiful city of Santa Barbara. The cottage sits on a one acre property studded with oak trees.
The living area has sky lights, a queen sofa, and a 37 inch flat screen TV. Adjacent is the dining area and the galley kitchen equipped with a dishwasher, refrigerator, stove, coffee machine and espresso maker. You'll find cooking utensils and pots and pans when you feel like having a home cooked meal.
The bedroom has a comfy king size bed and large dresser. The bathroom has a shower, a large closet (where you'll find a hair dryer and iron) and lots of natural light. An air mattress with bedding is also available to accommodate a third person, if needed.
The upper Montecito village is a five minute walk where you'll find restaurants, boutiques, a Cafe/bakery, and a grocery store. Drop by for a glass of wine at the famous San Isidro Ranch, which is a few minutes up the road. You will also have access to nearby walking and hiking trails.

My husband Gerry & I moved from the Washington D.C. area after more than 30 years working for the Foreign Service, with assignments in the Caribbean, South America, Africa & Europe. Gerry was raised in Santa Barbara so we decided to retire here. I speak Spanish and French, understand some Italian. We enjoy walking, good movies and dining out.
