One of the most prestigious and exclusive communities in the United States, Montecito is renowned as a favored residential and vacation retreat of the well-known and the well-heeled. Its impressive, often extraordinary homes and estates include many significant for their history, architecture or notable owners.
Located adjacent to Santa Barbara proper, Montecito sets the standard of luxury living on California's Central Coast. With a population just shy of 10,000, Montecito is as exclusive as it is beautiful, and is considered to be one of the most sought after seaside communities in the world. It hosts two lovely and intimate commercial hubs — Upper Village and Lower Village; each one offering discriminating shops and restaurants. The two public and five private schools, as well as private Westmont College, are ranked among the finest learning institutions in California. In addition to its beautiful beaches, Montecito offers two public parks, three private golf courses and a private tennis club.
More than just a beautiful place to live, Montecito and its residents are very protective of the community's aesthetic beauty and community feel. Long considered to be one of the most powerful citizen bodies in the United States, the Montecito Association is truly passionate about protecting the natural beauty, architecture, history, its residents and their environment.
