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.)
