Great location, nice people
Located down a private lane off a main road in Montecito, this place is ideally located. Close to Santa Barbara in an amazing neighborhood up in the hills a bit. The cottage is quaint, well-appointed and taken care of. The yard and landscaping are nice and outdoor meals by the pool are fantastic in this weather. The owner, Carla, is very accommodating and super friendly. The only drawback was the number of people who seem to be renting places on this property. There are many other tenants who seem to be a mix of permanent and vacation renters. It's not the most private location and you'll be sharing the parking area and pool with others. This worked out well for us though, since there was a really nice family with similar aged kids staying on the property as well. I'd highly recommend the place, but only if you're feeling like socializing with others. More of a mini-resort feel than a private vacation rental home.
