Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at the Garden Suite was sweet! The accomodation exceeded our expectations. Lingering with a cup of tea in the garden, sunning by the pool, and driving through Montecito enjoying the neighborhood were all reasons why we will return in the fall.

Thanks for the hospitality!

I stayed in the Garden Suite for a week in November 2013 and it was one of the best weeks of my whole year. Carla welcomed me like a family friend and made sure I had everything I needed for a needed time of rest and quiet. The grounds are beautiful, quiet, and the whole time, you truly do feel as if you are staying with family. The bed in the garden suite was truly heavenly and my favorite was the hammock outside by the pool! Great location near all the Carpenteria & Santa Barbara attractions, I had a great time exploring the beaches and cliffs nearby. Recommend this for anyone looking to get away from crowds, parties, etc. and needing a truly chill place to relax!

Very relaxing and dog friendly

  • 5 of 5
We stayed with Carla based on a recommendation from friends. It was very relaxing. Traveling with dogs can make it difficult to find nice accommodations, but the cottages were perfect. We grilled, laid-out by the pool, and soaked-in the CA sun.

Beautiful spot above Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I stayed at one of the cottages! It was a really peaceful area with a beautiful garden and heated jacuzzi for relaxing evenings after long days of exploring the areas!

Everything was perfect, the only downside was there was no sink to wash our dishes but we managed to do it in the bathroom anyways.

There is high tech laundry on site and fast reliable wifi

Highly recommend staying there, it's only a 10min drive downtown SB!

Definitely Recommend Staying here

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place for my wife and my get-away weekend. The garden and suites are all beautifully arranged on the property, the garden had a beautiful layout, the pool and jacuzzi were amazing (seriously amazing), and our dog had just as much fun as we did.

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The suite was clean, the TV had an HDMI cable that we were able to hook our computer up to to watch Netflix, the bed was very comfy and clean, and bathroom was very clean, and the overall space was exactly what we were looking for. There are enough parking spots for all of the guests, and all of the guests were very low-key and pleasant to be around. Although all of the suites were rented out we actually barely ran into everyone and it felt as if we had the entire area to ourselves.

I think one of the biggest perks on top of all these amenities is that our dog was allowed to enjoy the place just as much as we were.

We are looking forward to another reason to take a trip up to Santa Barbara/Montecito area so we can stay here again! I would definitely recommend this place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in the Garden Suite. For a studio it was very spacious, there was a little dining area, kitchenette, full bath, also a separate laundry room was available to use. It was very clean and nicely decorated. We enjoyed relaxing in the jacuzzi in the evening, hopefully we'll get to use the pool and hammock next time. Carla was very helpful and made our stay great. So glad we stayed here instead of a hotel room. We would highly recommend any of her properties, and we look forward to our next stay.

Great hideaway

  • 5 of 5
Carla's cottages is one of those special hideaways that a traveler is loathe to share. The compound, tucked in among the estates of Montecito, is a perfect retreat for anyone who's visiting Santa Barbara or the nearby communities. The cottage we stayed in was spacious--nicer than the online photos--the grounds and the pool are inviting, and Carla herself is a font of great information. Enjoy it, by all means--but don't tell anyone!
