Accommodations: Cottage, Studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)
Rent may be negociable for monthly stays.
Please come and enjoy this peaceful and serene setting and our Butterfly Beach Studio Cottage. Tucked away down a quiet lane and still close to all amenities, we know you will love it here. A short walk to Coast Village Road, you will find everything you need... coffee, restaurants, shopping, groceries, and Butterfly Beach near the Four Season's Biltmore Hotel.
Situated on our property, but not attached to our home is our unique, beachy cottage with private entrance and large, private patio deck for your enjoyment. This studio has always been a long term rental, but after a beautiful renovation we have decided to make it a vacation rental so others can enjoy as much as we do.
Sit back in the spacious, private patio and barbecue after a lovely day at the beach or connect your laptop to our personal WiFi anywhere on the property. Enjoy a movie on the 40' flat screen TV or your favorite HD Direct TV program you've recorded on the DVR. There is a mini kitchen with granite counter and sink plus small appliances for all of your needs.
The cottage is cozy and can fit 2 adults comfortably, and 1 child or 2 small children. We have everything you need for the beach including towels, beach chairs, umbrella, and boogie boards. We also have bicycles for your enjoyment including 2 stylin' beach cruisers. We'd love to give you local advice on everything from touring downtown on your beach cruiser to our favorite local hikes. Ask us anything! We've been in town for over 30 yrs.
We've also just added a 2 person spa/jacuzzi on the deck. Great for relaxing after a day at the beach or for star gazing with a glass of wine and your favorite someone!
We know you will love it here and we look forward to meeting you soon. Bob & Athena (and Nicole-our daughter who handles all bookings)

About the Host, Athena & Bob
After meeting in Santa Barbara and marrying here in 1979, we decided to find the perfect property for us. We love the beach and wanted a location that we could walk to most everything or be a few minutes drive away. We bought this property in 1982 and have remodeled and renovated to make it a wonderful home and environment for raising our 3 children. We decided to share this ideal setting with others so that you may enjoy this part of California as much as we do.
We love the beach, biking, beach volleyball, kayaking, hiking, tennis and our kids also enjoy surfing, yoga, paddleboarding and rock climbing as well. All of these activities are withing a 10 minute walk or car ride from our property.
One of our favorite travel destinations is Hawaii. We would love to have a house there someday!
