Jen and I stayed here August 2014 for 4 nights and had the most wonderful time. Cliff and Nicola were fantastic. Friendly, approachable and also full of knowledge of the local area. There is fantastic walks, bike rides and a short commute into Town. We will definitely stay here again if the opportunity arises..

All the other reviewers are absolutely correct--Creekside Montecito is a wonderful place to stay! We first stayed there five years ago, and found it as terrific then as it is now. It was a little like coming home. The spacious studio apartment is purpose-built above the hosts' double garage. It is a little like a tree house, with views in... More

We stayed here in Feb 2012 and felt guilty about not singing its praises then (it was the Last stop in a three week trip around the world so that is my excuse.) This is a lovely studio apartment over Nicola and Cliffs garage in the Santa Barbara suburb of Montecito but that discription does sell it short because it... More

A cozy, roomy "studio apartment" with small kitchen, sofa, and bathroom with great shower. Owners Cliff and Nicola are very hospitable and want to make sure you have what you need. They had yogurt, fruit and granola along with coffee available in the kitchen. One block to a great beach on which to take a walk or sit and enjoy... More

Delighted to find the accommodation provided after our drive from Carmel. Nicola and Cliff had kept in touch and their communication was excellent. A pretty, peaceful road in an upmarket area of a beautiful town. The room was exactly what we were hoping for. Spacious, beautifully maintained, and very pretty.. felt at home immediately. Tea, coffee, orange juice, cake, fruit... More

We recently spent 4 relaxing nights at Creekside Montecito. We chose this cozy spot because of the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. All that is written is true. Cliff and Nicola are the perfect hosts and have created a lovely studio apartment on their property in Montecito. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach, morning breakfast selections, quiet neighborhood, comfy... More

We congratulated ourselves on finding this lovely studio apartment. Nicola and Cliff are excellent innkeepers! The kitchen was perfect for our needs with fridge and microwave. The fridge was stocked with yogurt, fresh raspberries, cream for coffee, milk for the tasty granola, juice and butter. A fresh croissant and scone were waiting for morning. The little personal touches of collectibles... More

Charming place with charming hosts! Comfy and pratical, there is everything you need and Nicola is here to answer to all of your questions! The neighborhood is very lovely too (many little houses), just 10 min walk from the beach, and it is also very close to an Highway 1 entrance so very convenient. We really loved the decoration of...

Definitely the most charming place we stayed in our California road trip! A beach just a few minutes walk away as well as Montecito with some great restaurants (we recommend Tre Lune for... More

Lovely apartment above garage behind Nicola and Cliff's house and a 5-10 minute walk to a quiet unspoilt beach. Short drive to Santa Barbara and shorter drive to local restaurants and shops. Nicola and Cliff are excellent hosts and can give you lots of advice of what to do and where to go. Highly recommended and have given Creekside info... More
