Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the most wonderful thing to do?
A: Just sitting in one of the most beautiful, lush gardens in Montecito. No need to go anywhere else. The many giant trees, box bushes, secret places to sit or meditate. There are few places left in the world like this garden.
Q: Why is the rental special?
A: Because you are in a charming, old Spanish hacienda with brick floors, wood burning fireplace, antique furniture, comfortable bedrooms and the sound of many birds and a wonderful owl if you are lucky to be here when he/she is nesting in the tree.
Q: What is a wonderful activity?
A: Stroll to the back of the property to a secret path to the Picacho Lane and walk up the road to the mountains and over to San Ysidro Ranch for cocktails or dinner at the Plow and Angel or walk down the long driveway to Montecito Village for an Expresso or breakfast. Endless trails into the mountains nearby.
