Summerland, on the edge of Santa Barbara and Montecito, has a delightful village atmosphere with unique shops, a local winery, several restaurants and coffee shops.

The cottage has an open and airy feeling with vaulted ceilings, a large inviting kitchen, hardwood floors and wool carpets, decks off the kitchen and master bedroom, fireplace, heated tile floors, digital cable, high-speed wireless Internet, DVD/VCR and is furnished with antiques. Landscaping is extraordinary with an English garden including roses and numerous flowering plants year-round.

The romantic master bedroom features a vaulted ceiling and an antique queen-sized bed with the highest quality bedding. French doors open onto a private deck and enclosed patio.

Truly a Paradise

January 3, 2013

My family and I rented this home for the Christmas holiday. It was the perfect place for all six of us. It is a cozy cottage, but enough room that six adults fit very comfortably here without ever feeling on top of each other. The view when you open the front door, sit on the front porch or in the living room is breathtaking! The kitchen was stocked with all we needed to make a wonderful Xmas dinner. We did have a plumbing issue our first day there. Contacted the owner and she had a plumber out within an hour to take care of the problem. (the weekend before Xmas). It is an easy walk (down a little stair pathway) to cafes and to the beach. The cottage is full of lovely touches that let you know it is a well maintained, cared for home. My family and I truly felt at home here; it was hard to leave. If you are looking for somewhere to make wonderful memories this cottage is the place!

I stayed in Jasmine Cottage, next door to and similar to Paradise cottage. The owner went above and beyond to make me, my friend, and my dog comfortable. We were greeted with warm homemade brownies, a stocked fridge, fresh fruit and lots of snacks. There was a glorious view of the Pacific Ocean, plenty of space outside for sunning or reading in the shaded garden. Close to everything, peaceful serene and lots of fun for all!
