Full of beauty, history and grandeur, the
name Montecito translates to "little woods" or it may also mean
"little mountains". Either interpretation, Montecito is a beautiful area!
With a temperate climate, located five miles east of Santa Barbara, California,
Montecito extends from the sandy beaches along the Pacific Coast to the
foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains - a distance of about two miles.
