“Very nice house and nice location!”

We loved this house, had a great time during our stay! In addition, the house is located right close to the beautiful butterfly beach!

“Fabulous home”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2015

Jan was wonderful to work with, her home was amazing. Beautiful place and very comfortable. Everything you could want in a vacation home. My family had a terrific time. We plan on returning to this charming place.

“Wonderful Family Home”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2014

We stayed at this home for a month and had a wonderful time. The owner has it completely stocked, not just as a vacation place. There were eight of us, four children and four adults, and there was more than enough room for everyone. If you have children it's a great place because there is lots of room for them to run and play, a sport court for tennis, ping pong table, and even a screening room stocked with a ton of movies. And the location was perfect. We walked to the coffee shop and pharmacy almost every day, it took us about 20 minutes each way. And you're right off the 101, so getting around either North or South was really easy. The house itself has a few different entertaining areas which was nice, and it's really beautifully decorated. The owner was very responsive. I would highly recommend it for families since it's such a large and comfortable home.

“Perfect accommodations”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2014

Beautiful home that exceeded all my expectations!! Everything was perfect, nothing lacking. Went for my daughter's graduation from UCSB but am looking for a reason to go back!!! Will definitely refer anyone I know to this location. Wish I could have moved right in and never left - a little slice of heaven.

“Delightful for everyone”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2013

This was our first vacation rental ever. It will not be our last. This house & property is welcoming & beautiful. Our family gathering was wonderful. . The attention to detail perfect. The house welcomes you, the beds cradle you and the furniture is comfortable. Waking up each morning the garden invites you to stroll. I couldn't imagine a more perfect setting for reconnecting with people you love. Thank you, Jan for creating this place & sharing it with us.

“Fabulous get-a-way”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2013

We so enjoyed our family weekend get-a-way over Father's Day in this charming, comfortable and serene 1920 cottage. The kitchen was an amazing place to prep, cook and relax while also admiring the ouside gardens, fountain and the occasional special guests (little cotton tail bunnies). The entire experience was enchanting. We enjoyed riding the bicycles around the quiet and quaint neighborhood, sipping wine and BBQing on the patio and then slumbering in fine linens in the most comfortable beds for a restful nights nights sleep. My grandchildren enjoyed playing hide and seek along the side yard and ping pong. There was so much to do on the property that no one really wanted to leave. It was truly an amazing restful time. Thank you for sharing this well appointed comfortable home filled with history and antiques!

“Montecito charmer”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2013

Thank you so much for the wonderful stay in your Beautiful Montecito Home! Everything was perfect, from the great location to the huge, beautifully furnished home. Each couple had their own private suite and bath, which made the accommodations perfect. The fresh picked Flowers in each room really made us feel special. The kitchen was a cooks dream! There was every amenity needed and great serving pieces to make each meal truly special. We enjoyed many afternoons and evenings on the patio having lunch, snacks and drinks. The screening room was awesome! We enjoyed some good shows on the large screen. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone visiting with multiple couples, large families, Girls trip, etc., for a special treat to Montecito/Santa Barbara area.

“So many beautiful details!!!!”

Reviewed 26 Apr 2013

We were in search for a Santa Barbara home close to the beach to accommodate a girls weekend away and we could not have found a more perfect home! From the gorgeous gardens out of every wing, to the ambiance of the back porch with the string lights and fireplace....the amazing kitchen and the coziest beds! The owner was so sweet and so welcoming, it felt like we were staying at a friends home! I can't wait to return with my family! :)

Absolutely charming country home in one of the most beautiful areas of Montecito. My husband, two golden retrievers and I spent 4 days here and everything was perfect. The home is personal and intimate - every nook and cranny is a surprise -- collections look as though they were lovingly placed over many years -- we felt as though we were guests in a 5 star Cape Cod country inn. Every room is bright and sunny, has a spectacular kitchen, music library, a film screening room with more than 100 movies, huge yard - is perfect for families, or romantic getaway. Close to Miramar beach, the Montecito Village, Biltmore Hotel and Butterfly Beach, the Wharf, restaurants, and 5 minutes to the center of Santa Barbara and State Street.. A wonderful experience. Recommend for anyone who wants to experience Montecito and Santa Barbara.

“Chillaxing Thanksgiving”

Reviewed 30 Nov 2012

This home embraced our family for 5 nights with comfort, warmth, and charm. Starting with dog bowls set out for our dogs and ripening avocados for us and continuing with split wood for our fires and the morning paper, our family was allowed to meet in the middle and savor our Thanksgiving holiday. The open kitchen allowed for us all to cook together. While fantastic antique English pottery surrounds you, the serving dishes and plates are family practical and everything you could possibly need is there. With a fantastic collection of movies, we relaxed in the evenings in the home theater room. There is room to spread out, corners to be quiet, and couches to cozy up on. The neighborhood surrounding includes beautiful hikes, a dog friendly beach, and nice neighbors. The owners are accommodating and accessible. This home is simply a treasure! We hope to return!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

It truly worked out beyond what we could have imagined! Your photographs on the Internet did not do your home justice. Your home not only offers beauty, but comfort, relaxation, and a place that made all of us want to stay longer. We were able to easily serve 20 people dinner after the graduation and actually didn't go out for any meals one time... very rare when you are away from home. Another thing that was so nice is that I was going to buy flowers and put up small lights outside....and when I walked in and saw your beautiful arrangements throughout the house and lights on the outside fireplace, I was in awe of another perfect touch you had made. Amazing!

My daughter had 6 girlfriends come over, who are graduating next year, and they all want to rent your house as well as every year for their sorrority sister reunions. They were having such a wonderful time out on the patio that they didn't leave to go downtown until 11:30 that night...another testimonial to the setting. They were even going on and on about renting it for their weddings someday. Very dear! So to sum it up...yes everyone there would consider renting your home. I will also pass your information to others. Also having the projection screen was perfect for showing the photo slide show I made for my daughter.

Again, thank you for providing a place that was memorable for everyone!

We had such a marvelous time, I can't begin to tell you how much we enjoyed your home. It is just gorgeous. The only thing I would suggest is getting a hammock for the back yard, because honestly, we thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful garden out there and loved watching the humming birds dance around your roses. Thank you so much for being so thoughtful and buying an extra bike and a fabulous set of knives. We loved riding through the neighborhood. We laughed our way through the streets, it was such fun. I swear we felt like we were in a lovely cottage somewhere in the south of France. Thanks again for everything and I don't know when, but I'll guarantee we will definitely be back again.

We have had such a wonderful stay in your magnificent home! It's been such a treat. We'll cherish our memories throughout next Fall and Winter at home!

Thank you so much for letting us use your amazing vacation home. We have all been properly spoiled.

Your gardens and house are beautiful!
We had a lovely visit to Santa Barbara and area.
Staying in your home was great. Very comfortable and had everything we needed.
The guys especially enjoyed the media room and large screen.
