Channel Drive
Wonderful house close to Butterfly Beach, the Four Seasons Hotel as well as walking distance to the terrific Stella Mare's French Country Bistro restaurant. Well maintained,very clean. Outside area immaculately kept. Everything works perfectly. New upgraded TV remotes are much better than the old system. Great Weber BBQ. Could not finds any faults on my recent stay in January 2020.

Amazing property!
The property exceeded our expectations and was perfect in every way! We gathered as a family to celebrate Thanksgiving and our 40th wedding anniversary! The house and yard had everything we could possibly need including bikes and helmets for a short ride to the beach. Loved our stay... we will be back!

Would love to come back!
Channel Drive was so much more than we were expecting from the photos! We comfortably slept 8 adults, enjoyed the spacious kitchen that became the heart of our vacation and were so happy to be able to walk to the beach. It is just a quick ride-share ride into the Funk Zone so we could have a lovely dinner out and sample some of the local wineries. I would absolutely recommend Channel Drive to anyone looking for a place in and around Santa Barbara.

Magnificent Montecito Home
There are few vacation rentals that we have stayed in where the actual home is even better than the photos on a website, and this is one of them. My wife and I exclusively rent luxury homes when we travel, so we've had numerous experiences to compare our recent stay on Channel Drive to. I'm not sure if the owners use this home much on their own, but it was very obvious that they've spared no expense on the decorating, furnishings and various accoutrements that we enjoyed during our stay. All of our guests commented on the super-comfortable beds each morning as we would enjoy an always quite Montecito morning on the patio overlooking the gorgeous Koi pond. The space was abundant in the house and even though we were a party of 9 adults, we always had our own space when we wanted it. We began or ended each day with the short walk to Butterfly Beach (about a 5 minute walk), which might be one of my top walks ever. I loved strolling past the beautiful vegetation and walking up to the Four Season's Hotel. I loved being so close to it. Before we found this home to rent, we looked into renting a few rooms there, and the cost was much higher than having this full, beautiful home to ourselves! I'm so glad we found this house and we're already looking at our calendars for our next trip in June, because our experience was perfect in every way.

Gorgeous Beach Home
“Gorgeous house with so many little spots to sit with coffee or a glass of wine and enjoy conversation. Our family of 8 adults and 6 littles age 5 and under had a wonderful family time. Beach toys and towels were extra thoughtful touches. Very spacious, great location close to the beach. Beautiful big front yard for quiet or for kids to play.”

Family reunion
Wonderful property! Location to the beach, just a short stroll along stunning homes, is perfect. Walk to the Four Seasons. Having all the bikes was great, easy to ride downtown Santa Barbara. Close to grocery stores and the lower village of Montecito. Sleeps 7 comfortably. Note that there are 2 master bedrooms, one up and on main level. Well stocked kitchen, bedrooms have all the sheets, blankets, towels, and toiletries. Nice to come and not have to worry about these types of items. Will visit again!

Short walk to beac, hot tub, game room, outdoor fireplace, and built-in BBQ
This is the second summer we have rented this home. The yard is lovely, the house roomy and comfortable. Love the pool/ ping pong table!! Location couldn't be better- walking distance to the village shops and restaurants and to Butterfly Beach!

Family Montecito Vacation
Lovely home with lots of amenities. Our family, including three grandsons (six years and younger) enjoyed the koi pond, hot tub, and the large grass area for running around. We also spent hours playing ping-pong in the game room.

Lovely Property! Perfect Family Getaway!!
Our family stayed in this lovely home to celebrate our anniversary. It was perfect in every way!! The location is great, it's a short, beautiful walk to the beach, and a short drive to downtown. We can't wait to return!!

Book this place!
We booked very late for Labor Day Weekend but totally lucked out to this amazing house. The location is perfect. The description does not give it justice, everything is amazing. It's like your rich aunt gave you the keys for the weekend to her mansion by the beach. The house easily handled 3 couples and assorted friends. It actually felt huge. We laughed cause it took us a day to find one of the bathrooms (it's under the stairs). The location, the setting, the proximity to the beach all fantastic. We found everything we needed in the kitchen, the yard and hot tub and koi pond all amazingly relaxing. We barely left the house because we loved it so much. At night you can hear the waves from the house. We are already planning on booking again.

This is a fantastic family rental!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This property is just a few blocks to the beach and a short walk to Montecito Lower Village. The home and its furnishings are in immaculate condition and every convenience we needed was available. We spent leisurely afternoons lounging next to Koi pond and waterfalls. Our adult children enjoyed pool/ping pong table , huge TV's and bikes!! The owners obviously take pride in maintaining this property in top condition. Highly recommend this rental and would definitely stay again!!

Beautiful "Home away from home"
We spent the weekend in Santa Barbara to celebrate our daughter's wedding. I had to find lodging for me and my husband and our 4 grown children. Typically we would stay in hotels, but this time, we decided to rent a house so we can host a family dinner the day before the wedding. I know that pictures on-line may not accurately depict what the home will actually look like, but this home was as beautiful as the pictures. The amenities from a fully stocked kitchen, to the littlest of details like garage openers and bikes for our use was more than we could've asked for. The rental agency was also helpful in getting us in touch with a caterer to use for our family dinner. She was fabulous and made the event so special and memorable. The property was spectacular and the neighborhood was wonderful, especially with the beach within walking distance. The house was so clean, spacious and comfortable. My entire family felt like they were home. It was sad we had to leave on Sunday because we enjoyed our experience so much. This was our first time renting a home and it was almost too perfect, that I'm afraid our next rental experience won't be as nice. I highly recommend this property. Thank you for your beautiful home.

Perfect Rental Family Getaway!
My husband has developed several hospitality chains. As a result, we prefer to rent private properties to achieve the true getaway experience. For the same reason, we judge our accommodations with a critical eye. Well this property is the best we have EVER rented! It is immaculately maintained. The amenities are plentiful and top of the line. There's more than what's mentioned. Before our arrival, we arranged for bikes to be delivered. They had several new quality bikes and brand new helmets available-so we cancelled the bike rentals. The location is serene and a stone's throw from the ocean. It's absolutely perfect!

Great place for a family get together
Four siblings and their partners have gathered in this house annually for 4 years now. We have 2 professional chefs among us. The kitchen provides a wonderful space to work in or to hang out and observe. The proximity to the beach (a lovely walk) and downtown were also big plusses. The house (especially the kitchen) is well equipped with everything we needed and more. We hope to come back for many more years.

Zen retreat
This place was so relaxing. They have a Koi pond out back with lounges and Adirondack chairs by the waterfalls. It was the most serene place be ever rented. It's the kind of house where you can crank up the music, which plays throughout, and whip up a meal in the gourmet kitchen or challenge your wife to a game of ping pong in the game room. The house comes equipped with bikes and beach gear. We literally rode to the beach everyday. The view are intense. Mountains on one side, ocean on the other and flower. Flowers everywhere! The house was spotless, well maintained and very comfortable. Within minutes, I felt like I lived there. Like I was home. Oh and the hot tub. Very cool tub with views of the mountains. We will definitely be back!! Thanks again.

Wedding weekend
We were in Santa Barbara for our nephew's wedding. The house is lovely and well-maintained. The yard is gorgeous. It is very close to the beach and a walk to the Four Seasons was easy. Lots of amenities for both indoor and outdoor activities. Only comment is we are big Michigan fans and this home did not have the Big Ten network. I know, in beautiful Santa Barbara. Get outside. But this is Michigan we are taking about! We fashioned a solution with our own Apple TV (couldn't find a cable for theirs) but if football Saturdays are important to you and you are a Big Ten fan just be prepared. Silly I know. Otherwise, very highly recommended.

Beautiful Place to Stay!
We had another amazing stay at this property. It is perfect for our annual family trip to Santa Barbara. I love how so many little extras are provided, like the beach chairs, and everything is always kept in great condition. We will be definitely be staying here again and would recommend this property to anyone else looking for a wonderful place to stay!

A Little Bit of Heaven on Earth
What a wonderful vacation home. We had the pleasure of staying there for a week and didn't want to leave. Ever! The house is just perfect. Large rooms, comfortable furnishings, beautiful big modern kitchen. Everything is maintained perfectly. The outdoor area is fabulous. Beautiful new furniture, great bbq island, amazing koi pond, and wonderful hot tub. Something for everyone in the family. A beautiful quick walk to a magnificent beach. There aren't enough adjectives to describe this wonderful home. Perfect, perfect!! Can't wait to go back.

Clean and orderly
Our family came to Santa Barbara to attend our son's wedding. The house was perfect for us. We could all be together in one place without the separation of hotel rooms, we could come and go as we needed/wanted to, we had room to host our friends who had also come to SB for the wedding in a relaxed and "together" atmosphere. The gardens were so delightful for evenings sitting around visiting. My husband loved the hot tub and had great conversation with our daughter. The description was accurate, the property was clean and orderly, we would highly recommend this to anyone. The wedding was at the Biltmore Hotel, which is right down the street. So convenient.

This vacation rental was amazing
It is a beautiful home with great amenities. The back yard with the fountain, koi pond, and jacuzzi were very relaxing. There was a wonderful assortment of birds that visited the yard as well. This is a great home in a great location with great amenities. I would rent this home again for future visits to the Santa Barbara/Montecito area.

We had the most fabulous vacation in this gorgeous Montecito home
It is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. The great beaches are just a short walking distance and it's an easy bike trip to town. Any questions we had about the house were answered quickly and efficiently. I was traveling with children and they loved the outdoor hot tub and lovely koi pond. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a peaceful, relaxing vacation in a place that can only be described as paradise.

Highly recommend
I stayed at this property with my family prior to my wedding and we all had a great time! The location was ideal for us - between East Beach and Montecito, close to Butterfly Beach and the Biltmore! The house is spacious, clean and well furnished. We had ample room to invite friends over and have barbecue dinners. The hot tub and pool/ping pong table was a nice bonus! We also had our dog with us who loved running around the yard. I would highly recommend this house to large parties who want to be near the beach and have easy access to the freeway, Coast Village Rd and East Beach.

Exactly as advertised
When we walked into this beautiful house, we were thrilled to see that this home was exactly as advertised. From the layout, to the size of the rooms, to the decor, to it being immaculately clean, to it being stocked with anything you would need, you feel immediately at home. And that's just the inside. When opening sliding glass doors to the backyard, you feel like you are entering a beautiful resort, with gorgeous landscaping and a soothing waterfall. Tables, chairs, a bbq, fireplace and hot tub just add to the serenity. The beach is in walking distance and the town is just so close by. We spent some time in Santa Barbara which is a picture perfect town with plenty of wonderful restaurants just like in Montecito. We shared the house with our son, our daughter-in-law and our 2 1/2 yr old grandson. He had plenty of space to play. The zoo was another fabulous attraction right in the area. We would highly recommend this home. The owners were a pleasure to deal with. Overall, the house exceeded our expectations.

Everything about this home was incredible
Very well maintained. Overlooking the Santa Barbara Cemetery and a block away from the coast. We thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor area with the koi pond and bbq, along with the sound system installed throughout the home. Incredible, well supplied kitchen. Nearby restaurants were amazing. I don't think you can go wrong. We went to Fishhouse, Trattoria Victoria and Holdren's. All three were amazing. There was a farmer's market on State Street so we shopped there for breakfast items and enjoyed it in the wonderful kitchen. We will definitely be back!

This is one of the best vacation rentals that I have experienced
Great house with everything that a family would need...as if you lived there year around. Very spacious, clean, security system, entertainment system, pool table, ping - pong table, great outdoor space with bbq, hot-tub and koi pond, Wii for the kids (and some parents too:)), flat screen TVs in every room, all the beach gear needed, skate boards, kites, bikes, and more. Very short drive / walking distance to the beach, the Zoo, the Biltmore Hotel (great sunsets), food store, and restaurants. Easy drive to wine tasting and sightseeing. We had a blast and will be back.

Magical Retreat
I'm still transitioning back to reality after our trip to Montecito. I don't know where to start with this house and the area surrounding it. I had never been to the Santa Barbara area, which was described to me as magical, by a friend. It was just that, for me!  The house is very welcoming and comfortable, specifically the couches in the TV room and the den. The kitchen has ample space and is conducive to conversation, as any good kitchen should be. When we were not in the hot tub out back, which overlooks the mountains, we were standing around the island, laughing and telling stories. The flowers and landscape design of the property is impeccable. We would sit out back, watching the Koi in the pond, listening to the waterfall and all of a sudden out of the corner of your eye you would see a hummingbird on some bright red flower. Incredible! The rooms are spacious and the master bathroom is beautiful. The shower in the master bathroom was perfect! More than hotel style. We enjoyed biking to the beach with brand-new bicycles provided. It was only a couple of blocks and you were at the ocean. As far as food goes, I don't know where to start, but I remember the chicken sandwich at Honor Bar being incredible and Saturday night at the Stone House restaurant at The San Ysidro Ranch. One of the best meals of my life. Really! We went on a very unique tour of a local horticultural estate called Lotusland. There are really no words to describe this experience, but I highly recommend you check it out if you stay here. Like nothing I've ever seen.  We will surely return. Thank you for the wonderful memories!

Simply a great house to stay at
Big and yet cozy, close to all,(beach shopping etc...) and yet total privacy. Beautifully maintained both inside and out, it was easy to tell that every last detail had been well thought out from the Koi pond in the yard to the flat screen TV in the large family room, to the perfectly sized ping pong table in the lounge area.

This was our second visit to this property
My family and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at this comfortable home. The home is attractively decorated and immaculately kept. The numerous rooms provide opportunities for everyone to enjoy activities together as well as spend time alone with one's thoughts or a book. The expansive and well-designed kitchen was a perfect gathering place for children and adults during meal preparation. This was our second visit to this property, and we hope to enjoy future stays. Many thanks,

Fabulous Home - Great for large groups!
Everything about the house is terrific. The rooms were comfy and we had lots of space for everyone. The house is laid out so well with lots of places for people to do their own thing or come together and chat, play games, whatever. We are a group of ladies who get together twice a year to reconnect and this house was our favorite...and we've been doing this for over 10 years. We especially loved the outdoor fireplace, bbq and koi pond but the jacuzzi was also pretty great. However, our favorite place ended up being the kitchen area. Since we stay in for all our meals, it was a place to hang out with the cook, have some wine and chat. Hope to return next Fall!

Quintessential Montecito Experience - Absolutely Exquisite
Our family has had countless vacation home rental experiences in my life, but none as great as our recent stay at this beautiful home in Monetcito. After just a few days, I felt what is was like to live in a beautiful home in Montecito. Firstly, there is not a room in the entire house that isn't decorated beautifully. Absolutely everything in the house is updated and modern, from the every appliance we used to the oversized flatscreen TVs, to the sound system- and all the fixtures. The rooms are huge - and every morning, I literally had many choices as to where to have my morning coffee - beautiful porches in front, back, side and even on the 2nd floor overlooking the front gardens! Some of my our favorite activities were using the pool table, riding bikes, watching the koi swim around in possibly the largest backyard Koi pond I've ever seen - and walking to Butterfly Beach and the beautiful Biltmore Hotel. I loved that this home was literally next door to Ty Warner's estate (founder of Beanie Babies & owner of the Biltmore)...That's how you know you're in the right place in Santa Barbara!  In summary, you can tell when someone cares about their property...and my guess is, the owner uses it for themselves - because of how great the house is appointed and maintained. I fell in love with Montecito and Santa Barbara - all over again and our trip would not have been as special in a basic hotel room no matter how great the hotel. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to be in exactly the right spot in the SB/Montecito area.

Don't pass this gem up!
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home for a week with 8 adults an three littles.  The property exceeded our expectations.  We would strongly recommend this property. The home is very well maintained, perfect location and comfy.  Very easy check in and check out with excellent customer service. We had a minor issue of water backing up in the upstairs shower that was immediately addressed, with no inconvenience at all to us. The property management showed genuine  concern and responded within minutes.  This home has many amenities an is very spacious. There are tv's in every bedroom, game room and living room.

We absolutely loved this house
It was more beautiful than we expected. It was well stocked & had everything we needed. The management company was so easy to work with & everything was as promised. We wanted to move in & never leave! I would definitely recommend this for any large group & would stay here again in a heartbeat!

What a wonderful week spent at a beautiful clean Sunset Magazine Decorated home. We all had a great time, great location to everything.
