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...

A beautiful studio apartment in Nicola and Cliff's garden - so comfortable and everything thought of, including breakfast and info about things to do and see nearby. 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

Montecito is a beautiful and historical area, popular with writers and other creative types! It is a short walk to an unspoilt beach where you can relax using the chairs thoughtfully provided by Nicola and Cliff. You can reach Santa Barbara by car in 10 mins, either on the Highway or by going along the Coastal Village Road. Taxis cost... More

This is a very nice place to stay in a great location. Nicola and Cliff are very welcoming and helpful while still assuring your privacy. It is truly a 3 minute walk to the beach and a very doable walk to town. The gardens on the property and in the area are breath taking. We stayed for 5 nights in... More

I spent three nights at the Creekside Montecito. Nicola and Cliff were gracious hosts, providing everything I needed without being intrusive. What a beautiful place to relax, read a book or take a nap. It was hard to leave this oasis but who could resist a daily walk to the beach only 10 minutes away. I recommend drinks at El... More
