'Heavenly: This vacation home is perfect. Located in the Mesa area of Santa Barbara and within a block of a bike & walking park with incredible views, it is just blocks from great restaurants, grocery stores, shops, and everything you could possibly need. All this and yet peaceful and private, with the most heavenly back yard retreat accessed by french doors from the kitchen/dining and master bedroom - we loved it! Our 3 sons said it was hard to leave the house to see Santa Barbara with the pool, hot tub & pool table at the house! This was a family vacation and all want to return (which is unusual for a family of 6). Many thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us!' - Dana Staples, Palestine, TX

Charming home in resort quality setting. Living areas and master bedroom open to completely private flagstone patio, palm trees and lush tropical landscaping surrounding the cool blue waters of a pool. A large stone spa tucked into a bamboo grove spills water over a stone waterfall into the pool.

Stereo speakers at the patio and spa, views of the ocean and islands, and a lovely view of the moon rising over the next bluff make for a wonderfully romantic setting--and still within earshot of children sleeping in the two other bedrooms, if you've brought them along.

This three bedroom, two bath house, located in a quiet residential neighborhood, has french doors and sunlight throughout, ocean and island views, and romantic landscape lighting for the evening. Amenities include a gas log fireplace, stereo with CD player and five seperately controlled speaker zones, including the patio and the spa, cable TV with DVD/VCR, a full-sized pool table, a high speed DSL internet connection (wired or wireless) and free local and long-distance calling within the U.S. Everything you need right down to the CDs and guide books.

All this only minutes from everything Santa Barbara has to offer. Walk to Mesa Lane beach--named one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the country--or to Arroyo Burro Beach with its restaurant and snack shop on the sand. Hike in Ellings Park just a block up the hill or in the Douglas Preserve bluffs overlooking the ocean.

Starbucks, restaurants, ice cream, a bookstore, and a gourmet grocery and wine store are also within walking distance. Hop on your bike or in your car and in minutes be at the harbor, pier, and Yacht club, State Street and downtown Santa Barbara, the mission, the courthouse, restaurants and shopping, golf and tennis, and all the other sights of Santa Barbara. Or take the kids to the oceanfront skate park, to rent a surrey on the beachfront bike path, or to the carousel and free summer concerts on the ocean at Chase Palm Park.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The moment we entered the house we new we made a wise decision. Our stay was a dream come true. The house had everything you need, from towels to kitchenware. We were minutes from State St and the beach.



Mac (the owner)made the process so easy. This was one of the best summer vacations we had.



We're down for next year!!!!!

We had a delightful week in this beautiful home. We could quite happily have spent the week without leaving the house once! We were very impressed with the high quality of everything in the house especially towels and bed linen. Communication with owners was excellent.

Mesa Paradise - Such a relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks Mac & Meg for sharing your beautiful home. My husband & I visited almost 2 months ago & we still think about our wonderful trip to Santa Barbara. We loved staying at your place & couldn't get enough of the perfect weather. The bottle of wine upon arrival was such a nice touch. Your house had everything that we needed & was the perfect location for going to the beach or the many restaurants & shops in the downtown area. The gorgeous & private backyard really make it extra special. We loved having the pool & spa to come home to each day & enjoyed looking at all of the different kinds of plants in your yard. Such a beautiful place to have breakfast each morning & relax with cocktails in the evening. Your property truly is a paradise & we hope to stay there again someday!

Mesa Paradise is exceptional!!

  • 5 of 5
This is just a wonderful property we had a great time. The backyard with the Poland spa overlooking the ocean with your own various palm and bamboo trees is like an island paradise. This is a very well thought out property the pictures don't due it the proper justice. All the appliances and amenities are first rate along with very clear directionson how to use everything. For sure our next visit to Santa Barbara will be at this property it is a real gem

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent 1 week at the "mesa paradise" and I have to say it was perfect. The house had everything! Hands down the best thing about the house was the back yard. The fabulous surround sound, pool, hot tub, and heater made drinking coffee or cocktails a little more glamorous!

The house was centrally located to everything and completely feel in love with the Boathouse at Hendry's Beach (check it out, you won't regret it!!!)

I would 100% rent the "mesa paradise" again....and hope to next year!

Thank you Mac for everything!

the best vacation of our lives

  • 5 of 5
We spent 1 week in "mesa paradise" this summer and it was the best vacation of our lives for all of my family (my wife, myself and our 3 children : 17 years-old, 14 years-old and 8 years-old)
The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood and less than 5 minutes drive from the wonderful city of Santa Barbara . The house was cozy, very confortable, very clean and had all the amenities we were looking for. It was perfect.
The outside terrace is really wonderful to relax , to enjoy the sun , to lunch ( with a perfect barbecue) and to see our children playing in the pool.
The communication with the owners was excellent .
We will recommend this beautify house to all of our friends and certainly .. we will be back

One Word: Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our two-week stay at Mesa Paradise, which exceeded all of our high expectations.

The highlight of the property is a resort-like tropical-feel backyard with a phenomenal pool and spa, which also functions as a tranquil waterfall. The backyard is completely private and offers a picaboo view of the ocean at a distance from the hill. Whether it is swimming with kids, grilling, relaxing with a glass of wine at the spa listening to music playing through the outdoor speakers, just sitting around (with space heater if you would like) and watching the moon and stars at night, you will miss this outdoor space when you leave.

The house itself is extremely comfortable and cozy. It has all you may need during your vacation. Everything in the house is tasteful and clean -- beds, bathrooms, kitchen, kitchenware, laundry machines, etc. As a bonus, you can pool in the converted garage. There is a television (with cable, Apple TV, Roku, DVD player), for entertainment, although with everything this house, backyard and Santa Barbara has to offer, you may not even bother with that during your stay here.

The location is extremely convenient. It's in a quite residential neighborhood up the hill from the beach. The hiking trails to the park with stunning views and sunsets are just a short stroll away. You can walk to other parks and steps to the beach. If you prefer to drive, a great beach is approximately 5 minutes away. Driving downtown is also easy and quick. There is also a shopping center with grocery stores, a gas station, multiple restaurants within a 3-minute drive.

If you are traveling to Santa Barbara, skip the Four Seasons and stay at this wonderful private retreat.

Location

From the Owner

We walked in the door, went straight through to the back, and knew this was the place for us. We've made many improvements, including the addition of the spa, but the fellow we bought from was in landscaping, and the paradise he started is an amazing one.

Amenities

From the Owner

A completely private 5-star hotel quality patio, pool, and spa all to yourself. Romantic lighting inside and out. An amazing stereo system with speakers throughout the house, as well as at the patio and at the spa. There isn't a better place to be in love, with our without children along. It's one of the lovely things about renting a house: you can sit on the patio and watch the moon and stars and still be able to hear your children if they wake.
