This Charming Hillside Cottage is nestled on a hillside, up a rustic 1/4 mile drive from a quiet neighborhood, that winds through an oak grove leading to our little paradise. We are surrounded by oaks and kentia palms, with spectacular mountain and city views. This guest cottage is private, and detached from our family home. We are 5 minutes from the beach and 5 minutes from downtown. Though we are on the 'upper' west side not far from the mesa, the property is very different from any residence around it, as it is in its own little 5 acre pocket in between 2 neighborhoods - the west side and Bel Air Knolls, but doesn't look like either one.
The cozy bedroom has french windows that look out into a garden area, a king bed, Ethan Allen desk, and a soft comfy chair.
The spacious sitting room converts to sleep 4, with a full sized loft bed, and a full, very comfy futon/sofa. The loft bed has a beautiful mountain view.
The redwood deck overlooks the hillside, and has a lovely eating area, a bbq, and a private hot tub.
Though we are in a very private setting, we are conveniently located in the city - a secret little pocket that overlooks Santa Barbara - and only a short drive to the beach and to downtown shopping.
This cottage has been renting for $195 - $215/night for years. However, recently the City of Santa Barbara voted to make vacation rentals illegal in residential areas. Hence, we are forced to rent the cottage out for a minimum of 31 nights. To make this more reasonable for long-term renters, we greatly reduced our rate. This new monthly rate still includes all utilities, including wifi.
