A Special Place. Romantic, Quiet, Tucked Away.
A refuge from the City, in a safe neighborhood, minutes from Santa Barbara, and world class pristine beaches!

The space

The cottage is architecturally preserved and built to last. It has lots of storage cupboards, and the charm of the 1940's. Original hardwood floors throughout, french doors and oversized wood windows. An efficient gravity heater warms the house without a sound, so that the orchestral display of sound from our visiting bird population can be heard throughout the day. No need for air conditioning. We are blessed with a Pacific ocean current even on the warmest days. There is a full bath, with shower and tub, a bedroom with large windows and a pull out sofabed in the Living Room for 2 additional guests. The surrounding gardens are mature, with 12 foot high honeysuckle hedges, bougainvillea, trumpet vines and trees. The moment you step onto the property, you feel a sense of serenity and calm, as you are enveloped with greenery and perfumed air. Privacy, peace and a stone's throw away from all the amenities you need to enjoy your stay in lovely Montecito, which in Chumash means "little woods".

Guest access

The Burnham Wood Golf Course is less than a block away.
If you arrived without a car, there is a Santa Barbara bus transit system that stops 1/2 block away to take you into Downtown Santa Barbara. Driving, you are close to everything: beaches, hiking trails, shopping, restaurants, and more.

Interaction with guests

The owner is a phone call away, and will answer any questions or needs you may have.

We had such a wonderful stay at Suzanne's cottage. It is really quite unique, tucked away in the Montecito hills, fall asleep and wake up to the sound of doves and let yourself daydream in her magnificent garden while you take in the mountains and the sweet, sweet scents of jasmine and rose.

A little jem in a jewel-box. Comfortable, yet Chic. Convenient to Coast Village Road, Miramar Beach and Santa Barbara proper. Warm, inviting...working fireplace, cotton sheets, Viking Stove, aesthetic, and considered. I hesitate to say more, for this litttle jem of a cottage is a treasure. Thank you. The garden and light and all the little details charmed us, in every way. Thank you for the beauty Suzanne. Kind Regards, Beth, Tenn, Raphaella.

Beautiful Montecito neighborhood -- private, quiet and secluded...but easy drive to downtown Montecito, the beach and Santa Barbara. House was simple, yet charming with beautiful gardens and a well-equipped kitchen. Overall we had a very pleasant stay.

We adored the cottage and found it very comfortable and appointed beautifully. It's very clear Suzanne loves her home. We loved walking the neighborhood in the morning. It's especially quiet at night which we loved.

Seemless renting experience! Highly recommend for those looking for a romantic and quiet weekend away with loved ones. The small details around the house, garden and patio made our already 5 star experience truly unforgettable! So glad we found this gem.
