Recent Montecito vacation rental reviews

Being as I live in a mountain area, I am especially appreciative of a dark bedroom. This was such a bedroom, ensuring a good night's sleep. The house is light and comfy with a lovely private backyard space, that includes a jacuzzi. Another bonus is the quick and easy stroll to the beach.

Close to everything in Montecito. Great backyard!
Dan W. | Jul 2022
This is an easy place to stay. Great beach access and excellent location. The one thing I would say is that it needs a little TLC. It could be a beautiful property with some updates to lighting and some window coverings. It is closer to the freeway than you would think, but if you are used to living near a busy road it is totally manageable. Everything else you need is a short drive.

Where is Montecito?

Just east of Santa Barbara and approximately 90 minutes from Los Angeles, you'll find the upscale region of Montecito. Dotted with private mansions and sprawling historic estates, this Pacific paradise boasts a Mediterranean climate and stunning shoreline.

Montecito beaches and outdoor attractions

This area is renowned for its magical beaches. Dog-friendly Miramar Beach is a cozy gem where you can discover tide pools and watch seals. See what you can spot at Butterfly Beach, from migrating monarch butterflies to a vacationing celebrity.

Nature-lovers will feel welcome here. On Cold Spring Trail, you can find soothing sounds of nearby waterfalls, and a 360-degree view if you climb steep hills to Montecito Peak. Take your dog for a run at the pet-friendly Toro Canyon Park just east of town. For a truly unforgettable experience, plan a day around venturing out to Channel Islands National Park, an isolated nature preserve accessible by boat or private plane.

Things to do in Montecito, CA

While there are many outdoor attractions to connect with nature, Montecito is known for luxury. This is your chance to pamper yourself at San Ysidro Ranch, recognized as one of the best spa resorts in the country by Forbes magazine. Here, even your pets can enjoy top-notch treatment. Take yourself out to a grand dinner at the contemporary French Stella Mares or New American Montecito Wine Bistro. At the end of your "you" day, your private home away from home will be waiting, so the pampering never ends.

Your Montecito getaway will inspire your inner designer with the town's historic estates and fantastic gardens. Take a guided tour of the mansion and grounds of Casa del Herrero (House of the Blacksmith), built in 1925. Reserve a visit to Lotus Land where you can observe a variety of alluring and exotic flora. Next door in Santa Barbara is the Old Mission, built in 1786.

Day trips from Montecito

Being this close to Santa Barbara makes it easy for Montecito visitors to partake in their neighboring city's downtown shopping on State Street. Bring home gifts from boho boutiques and other specialty shops. For a family-friendly day, visit the Santa Barbara Zoo.

Foodies and wine connoisseurs will love the unforgettable restaurants in nearby Carpinteria and Summerland's host of wineries.

If you're traveling to Montecito from outside Southern California, a day trip to Los Angeles would really round out this adventure. You can take a studio tour, visit the Griffith Observatory, and take a turn about Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. And, just like at Butterfly Beach, you never know who you might run into.

If you're seeking a remarkable California trip combining luxury and outdoor adventure, our Montecito vacation rentals may be just the ticket to an unforgettable getaway.
