Montecito is an unincorporated community located on the south coast. The Montecito Planning Area generally lies between the Pacific Ocean and the foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains, with the City of Santa Barbara to the west and the unincorporated community of Summerland to the east. The southern portion lies within the state coastal zone. Montecito is one of the older settlements in Santa Barbara County. The area was originally settled by the Spanish in 1700's and 1800's with land grants given or sold to retiring soldiers of the Santa Barbara Presidio.
