I want you to feel welcome and comfortable in this beautiful cottage located a five-minute walk from restaurants and shops of Montecito's Village, and a ten-minute walk to Butterfly Beach, and Biltmore Hotel. The cottage features a private entrance and private garden and patio area which has ample space for dining and relaxing. Enjoy a refreshing swim, or soak in the jacuzzi, relax on the double loungers by the pool. Come see why locals call Santa Barbara paradise!

The space

Charming cottage, garden setting. Meticulous landscaping. Cozy living room with plush sofa converts to ample queen-sized bed. Enjoy watching commercial-free Hulu or Netflix on flat screen t.v., in front of the indoor gas fire, or take in the relaxing sound of tranquility fountain on private patio. Master bedroom benefits from sumptuous queen bed, Garnet Hill luxury bed linens, walk-in closet, ensuite bathroom with tub. Master bedroom opens through double french doors to private patio garden with Restoration Hardware, generously-sized sofa and dining table for four. Enjoy a glass of wine by the gas fire pit at night after a soak in the jacuzzi. Have a go at grilling on the Saber infrared grill.

During the day, relax by the pool on the double wide Restoration Hardware pool loungers, enjoy a warm shower outdoors in your private patio garden. Fancy a walk on the beach? Butterfly Beach and the famous Biltmore hotel are a ten minute walk, don't forget to drop by Jeanine's Cafe on the way for the best coffee.

Guest access

You will have private access to the cottage and the enclosed landscaped garden and patio which has outdoor sofa and chair, a four-seated dining table with sun umbrella, tranquility fountain, automatic lighting, gas fire pit, gas grill, and outdoor shower. You will have shared access to the pool, pool lounge area and jacuzzi.

Interaction with guests

I live in the main house and will greet you when you first arrive and show you some of the features of the property. I will be available during your stay to assist your needs. You may see me from time to time tidying up the pool or pool area. I am happy to allow as much privacy or engagement as you prefer.

Other things to note

I rely on your input to improve your stay so if you have any requests prior to or during your stay let me know and I will do my best to accommodate.
The kitchen is minimalist and is well-equipped for basic cooking, toasting and microwaving but not ideal if your plan is to do baking or gourmet cooking. There is a mini fridge, and a toaster oven, microwave oven, double hot plate, coffee maker, and electric kettle for cooking. There is an outdoor gas grill with a side burner for additional cooking options.
The pool is heated by solar panels which can achieve a temp of 82 degrees in the summer but in the winter pool temp runs in the 60s to low 70s. The jacuzzi is heated on demand to 103 degrees and is available throughout your stay. There is an option to gas heat the pool for an additional $50 per day.
There are no on-site laundry facilities. I can provide you with the details of fluff and fold services in the area.

You should be so lucky to stay here on your next visit to Montecito! This cozy and charming guest house was a perfect getaway for my teenage daughter and me. We walked to the beach and shops in Montecito, enjoyed the outside couches and snuggled up in front of the fire every night.

Bonnie's place is the best!! We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our trip up the coast for our anniversary. It is so beautiful, comfortable, and luxurious. Everything about it was so relaxing. It's in a great location for dining and shopping. I liked the quietness of Montecito vs the bustle of the State Street area. Also, Bonnie was super responsive, helpful, but also gave us our space. This stay was perfection!

I enjoy the healthy living that Southern California has to offer. I often walk from my house to the beach and throw the ball for my dog. I am a mother, and work as a doctor.
