It's not tiny, but this luxury cottage vacation rental is truly something to behold

So you've got a getaway planned with a group of family and friends. Do you rent out a block of hotel rooms and spend most of your time separated and cramped in a room? How about a better option where your lodging is just a part of the story as the trip itself? The Birdsong Cottage in Montecito is best described as a retreat. Whatever the reason for your vacation / visit, you can spend downtime in luxury with great opportunities for conversing and relaxing while having the opportunity for privacy as well.
The Birdsong Cottage sleeps 8+ with a master and 2 guest bedrooms as well as loft space. 1500 square feet are maximized with vaulted ceilings and picturesque windows. The outdoor living area is almost infinite as the property is surrounded by a wraparound deck with built-in hot tub, a barbecue area, a wooded yard / garden, and a seasonal creek among many other amenities.

The guest bedrooms are situated on opposite ends of the cottage, each with a walk-out deck.
 
There's enough awe as you're driving up to the location but it pales in comparison to the breathtaking view when you enter the front door.  
The cottage sleeps 8 but the spacious layout features room for entertaining dozens more.  
The great room, with a fresh breeze coming through the side cutout and the glorious view from gigantic picture windows, provides a perfect location for a morning cup of coffee, an evening glass of wine and everything in between. 
A fully-equipped kitchen features breakfast bar that seats three and plenty of room for prep of meals for a large group.  
The master bedroom features a king size bed, an attached bathroom, and a 55” flat screen TV on the adjacent wall.  
The roomy master bathroom including his and her sinks.  
Guests can use the bathrooms located off the main hallway.  
A view from the loft area shows the cohesion that the vaulted ceilings and front windows provide.  
An outdoor dining area situated off of the main deck is great for a twilight dinner or a family breakfast.
