Property Info

Lillie by the Sea

max occupancy 6/ 2 BDRM (6 adults )

Lillie by the Sea is completely remodeled and updated in the Fall of 2018. Located in idyllic Summerland, a classic California beach town that is just south of Santa Barbara.  The home is a 5-minute walk from cozy cafes, restaurants, coffee shops, a wine-tasting bar, and several retailers. The closest beach is only a 10-minute walk away, accessed via Lookout Park, which has a children’s playground and a paved trail leading down the bluff to the long and wide white-sand beach.
The front deck has a bistro table and chairs, providing an unobstructed view of the ocean and its perfect sunsets.  Entering into the home leads you to a fun beach vibe interior with gorgeous wood floors, crisp white walls, and a cozy modern décor. The living room has a giant curved glass window that looks out to the Pacific Ocean. Relax on the sectional sofa while enjoying time with friends, or turn on the large flat-screen TV and curl up to watch a movie.  If you feel like taking a break from the world-class cuisine that the neighboring towns of Santa Barbara and Montecito have to offer, utilize the fully-equipped and completely remodeled kitchen.  There is a dining table inside that seats 6.  There is also an outdoor table for 6 on the back deck that is accessed through the kitchen’s French doors.

A chef’s gas BBQ can help bring an essential flame-broiled flavor to every meal.  In the mornings, you can grab your cup of Joe from the Keurig coffee maker before you head out for a fun day of activities.  At the end of your day, you may want to enjoy a glass of wine or a cocktail by the outdoor gas fire pit with a built-in wrap-around bench.  Both bedrooms, and the master bathroom, have modern ceiling fans to help keep the in-room climate to your liking.  There is a private deck off the second bedroom, for another view of the gleaming ocean.  Both bedrooms have flat-panel TVs, and the Master bath has a large and welcoming newly remodeled walk-in tile shower.

This rental just came on the market so we thought we would check it out. What a great experience. The house is a short walk from great restaurants and a wine bar. And we were on a beautiful white sand and long/wide beach with just a 10-minute walk from the house. My boyfriend surfs, and said Rincon was going off -- head-high a-frame waves (whatever that means.) We enjoyed the ocean view from the front deck, and each night there was a postcard perfect sunset on the water. Everything in the house seems new. New furnishings, new beds, new TVs, new kitchen, etc. The back decks are awesome. Steamer chairs for relaxing. Great BBQ with outdoor table. There is a gas firepit which was lovely when the temperature dropped to around 60 degrees. We loved it all!

Everything was perfect even the weather. Had a wonderful stay and the accommodations were perfect for the 4 of us.

It was disappointing the indoor fireplace was not available. Everything else was great though.

everything about the house was great. It was spotless, with plenty of sheets, towels, dishes, soaps. Just a few very little things that could use some attention that the owner/manager/cleaning people might not notice: 1. a few of the bath towels and wash cloths had that musty smell like they may have been left wet too long in the washer. they also could have used a couple runs through the wash with some bleach. not a big deal, just FYI. 2. maybe could use one more "larger" sauce or pasta pot. but overall, kitchen was super well stocked. really nice to have some baggies, foil, laundry soap. 3. squeaky doors could use a little WD-40. bathrooms mainly noisy at night. 4. master bath sink slow drain 5. might be a nice gesture to add a noise machine in house to muffle street noise, though I guess one could use app on their phone. 5. lastly, the lights (bulbs) are very bright/flourescent throughout the house (kitchen, patio (front/back) and cute string lights. they are almost too bright to turn on. Again, all super little things. House was exactly as described, impeccably clean and superbly equipped and comfortable. Water views amazing, bed linens soft and clean, lots of nice extras. Thank you!
