About this listing
Our Guest House is at the end of a cul de sac on a one acre paradise with beautifully designed gardens in Montecito. We are less than a mile to the ocean, close to both upper and lower Mont villages hiking trails and 8 min. to Santa Barbara.
Large main room with 2 french doors and that lead out to the patio and overlook the lawn and gardens.
Our Mission style cottage is truly unique. Located 3/4 of a mile from the ocean, the 700 square foot cottage has a lovely living room with gas/wood burning fireplace, spacious full kitchen, cozy bedroom and full bath. Access to shopping, restaurants, the beach and hiking trails make this the perfect semi-rural getaway. The cottage has all the modern amenities including a fully equipped kitchen, flat screen TV, DVD,wi-fi, patio,and ping pong. We are new to Airbnb and recently had our first Airbnb guest in August 2014. (They gave us a very positive review) We have been listed on "Vacation Rental by Owner" since August 2012 though and have 23 "5" star reviews.
Guests have access to entire cottage and patio. There is also a ping pong table on a second patio that you are welcome to enjoy.
Interaction with Guests
We live in the main house on the 1 acre property. You will have complete privacy but we are also available to share local favorite spots, restaurants, etc. We both have lived in the area over 30 years and are a wealth of information.
Our neighborhood is a quiet, friendly, family neighborhood. We love not only the beauty of the neighborhood but that it feels quiet and peaceful, while being close to restaurants, stores, the mountains, the beach, and downtown Santa Barbara.
Most people prefer a car when visiting Montecito and Santa Barbara, though it is possible to take the buses or ride your bike. You will have your own parking area right next to the cottage.
Other Things to Note
Originally built as an artist studio/guest house, there are lots of beautiful touches.
No smoking, no pets. This is a quiet neighborhood, so no loud music.
