Cota Cottage Santa Barbara

Ocean views, hot tub, balcony, and patio - perfect apartment for relaxing!

Pets Welcome







This peaceful, cozy one bedroom cottage on the Lower Riviera is just the perfect setting for rest and relaxation!  You feel at home as soon as you walk in the door with plenty of room for comfortable living , two walk-in closets for storage, and a fully stocked kitchen with dining alcove.   As you enter through the arched doorway, old world charm invites you into the main living room which is also fully equipped with modern amenities such as a flat screen television and a comfortable sofa that can serve as extra sleeping space  for a child or guest. This upstairs apartment is set back down a long driveway off the street for extreme quiet and privacy.  Enjoy a morning cup of coffee as the birds sing on the private balcony with a bistro table for two and a peek of the ocean.


When you are ready to explore the sites of Santa Barbara, this location is ideal.  It's only a few miles from downtown State Street shops and restaurants and the same distance to the popular East Beach.  Take along some beach chairs and towels provided and enjoy the day in the sun!  End your perfect day back at the cottage with a relaxing soak in the private hot tub!

Truly One of the Best Stays We've Had.
Close to great restaurants, Main Street and the beach. The hosts were fantastic - very friendly and accommodating. The cottage is perfect for a couple or solo traveler. The private courtyard with hot tub and outdoor shower was a real treat. Highly recommend. Also great WiFi if you are working remotely.

Perfect Getaway
I HIGHLY recommend staying at this place. We were there for 7 weeks working from home during COVID and it was the perfect getaway. The view is amazing, and the apartment is secluded and it has the nicest backyard/jacuzzi

“We had the most amazing time staying here! The apartment is small, but it has lots of little nooks to sit and work, and tons of storage space. We loved the outdoor spaces, especially the hot tub and the outdoor shower! Communication with VROSB was so easy, and the welcome book had lots of great recommendations. The location of the cottage was great too - it's close to downtown without being loud or busy, easy to get on the freeway, and a short drive to Montecito. We walked to the Farmer's Market one day, of course ate at Los Agaves, La Superica, Bossie's and The Shop on Milpas. We loved it so much that we booked again for next year!”

“Serene, sunny, and very comfortable spot. As a couple, we thought it was ideal. Can walk to several great eateries and to the Trader Joe's as well. Kitchen is outfitted well for basic cooking too.”

Ideal Location
This cute little apartment felt like Santa Barbara! I loved eating on the balcony, lounging and reading on the outdoor patio, and relaxing in the hot tub. The location was ideal.

The Cota Cottage was seriously a little slice of heaven
The Cota Cottage was seriously a little slice of heaven and way exceeded expectations. Exactly as shown in the pics, if not better. Beautifully decorated, but also extremely well appointed, and by that I mean the highest quality sheets, thickest plushest towels, beautiful furniture, [added hangers, every detail you can imagine taken care of to the highest quality. The cottage itself is extremely private, there is not only a hot tub and private lounging area in the back but a private outdoor shower as well with an amazing supply of hot water. The kitchen is spacious, well appointed with everything you could need from olive oil to the keurig coffee. Two huge closets for all your luggage and hanging items, bathroom stocked with all the things you might have forgotten like q-tips and travel size shampoo. Parking was a breeze, location was excellent (must walk to Los Agaves for dinner one night when you stay - best Mexican I had ever tasted!). Ocean view, lots of private nooks to have breakfast or read while someone else in another area of the house, kitchen removed from the bedroom so if you are an early riser like me you can prepare breakfast without disturbing anyone. We didn't use the TV but great entertainment setup and cozy couch to cuddle on to watch movies if you wanted and laundry on the premises which is an amazing added benefit. Will definitely be back!!!!

Bright and cheery
My wife and I spent 3 weeks here in December and thought it was great. The apartment is down a narrow driveway and over a garage, but don't let that put you off - inside it is bright and cheery, with a nice balcony, good kitchen, and private use of a small courtyard with hot tub. And it is walking distance from several great Mexican places on Milpas Street, and a short drive or long walk (30 minutes) from downtown.
