Property Details

Updated: May 5, 2015
Home, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 7-12)

Ideally situated off of Shoreline Drive on the popular Mesa, this spacious and light, two-story home on the oceanside of town, steps away from beach access, provides the perfect location for a weekend get-together with friends or a vacation with the entire family! Special occasions such as family reunions, graduations, housing wedding guests, holiday celebrations, and birthdays are all welcome!


Bedroom #1- Two singles; full bath shared with bedroom #2.

Bedroom #2 - Queen bed.

Bedroom #3 - Queen bed; three-quarter private bath.


Suite #1 - Queen bed; full private marbled bath with Jacuzzi tub and separate shower.

Suite #2 - 2 Queens; full private bath.

This fully furnished, clean and lovely property offers partial ocean views from its large second-story comprised of two Master Suites, both with high vaulted ceilings and tiled or wooden floors.

More About the Property: The downstairs has two bedroom wings, on opposite sides of the house, allowing for privacy yet still accommodating a larger party all under the same roof.

The open kitchen, with a large island and breakfast bar provides ample space to entertain, and a separate dining room offers formal seating for eight.

Rounded archways lead from the kitchen, to the overstuffed couches and sprawling armchairs of the main living room, lending an inviting atmosphere for good company and conversation to occur around the fireplace. A second, larger family room is located off of the kitchen and offers even more seating, a home office, large TV with DVD/Cable, and a piano for personal entertainment!

Gaze out through the double set of French doors opening from the main living room to the enclosed backyard. A large tiled patio with electric and gas barbecues, outdoor furniture, and seating for 16, is complete with hot tub, the ultimate relaxation after a long day out and about!

The private, fenced-in back yard provides a safe environment for children to play in. And all the little touches- movies, games, books, and magazines - make it feel like a home-away-from-home!

Enjoy a stroll around the corner to the beautiful Shoreline Park, a sprawling 1.5 mile long grassy green park on the ocean bluffs. This park offers gorgeous ocean and island views, bike and foot paths, tables and barbeque pits, a park for the kids, and several beach access points including Leadbetter Beach, where surfers come to learn! Follow the bike path thru the Marina and enjoy a game of volleyball on the sand at the public West Beach courts, set amongst the picturesque harbor. Or walk down to the impressive Stearn’s Wharf, complete with a brand new Marine Center and family friendly restaurants.

A short ride or walk in the opposite direction will take you to several parks or to the 70 plus acres of open, ocean front bluffs of the Douglas Family Preserve (five minutes away) scattered with trails open to the public and spectacular sunset views! From here make the choice to enjoy the popular Mesa Lane Beach or Arroyo Burro Beach (known to locals as Hendry’s or The Pit), which has a full restaurant and snack bar. Dolphins and whales are spotted at this beach daily!

Conveniently located close to the markets and steps or a short bike ride away from several beaches, this quiet and safe neighborhood is only minutes away from the culture and world class shopping offered by downtown Santa Barbara.

Large home in a great location

  • 4 of 5
We had a very nice stay in this home for a girls weekend celebrating my 40th birthday. The home is very well located to downtown, close to the Harbor and Wharf and walk to a nice beach and park. There was a large group of us and there was enough space for everyone to have their own bed to enjoy. Only reason I am not giving 5 stars is that some of the furniture could use a bit of updating. That comment aside, the home was very clean and well maintained. The reservation process with Ed was smooth. He was timely and helpful.

Perfect home for our family Thanksgiving week.

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this home with our family for Thanksgiving week. The house was just the right size for our family. We were pleased that it was everything that the advertisement said it would be. We loved being close to the ocean, beaches, SB Marina, State Street, Pier, Zoo and grocery shopping was near by. There were places to walk, play, shop and eat. Our whole family, ages 4 to 71, had a great time. Ed was responsive and friendly. We would highly recommend staying in this home and will recommend it to our friends.

Perfect Weekend Getaway with Friends

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from the best weekend in Santa Barbara. It was a girls weekend to celebrate the upcoming marriage of my best friend and the house couldn't have been more perfect for the occasion. Easy to find, across the street from a private beach, great flow to the house using indoor and outdoor space. We were either all around the huge island in the kitchen or outside enjoying the weather on the patio. The house had everything you could ever need and we couldn't have been more pleased. The owner was very easy to work with and very flexible. Thank you so much for a perfect weekend with lots of fun memories!!

Unforgettable Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful UCSB reunion while staying here over Labor Day weekend. They house is very spacious, and perfect for a large group. Nice backyard for grilling and hanging out in the hot tub. Conveniently located about 1/2 block from stairs leading down to the beach, and walking distance to the Mesa markets & stores. Property was clean and well stocked, and the owner was very easy to work with. I would highly recommend staying here, and hope to do so again in the future.

Celebration of Life

  • 4 of 5
This was the perfect house for our family reunion/ celebration of life. We came from Indiana, Maryland and North Carolina. The house was a good size to accommodate the eight of us, plenty of space, a nice patio with hot tub. The location is great for all the attractions in Santa Barbara. The only drawback was it could have been cleaner, but I'm nitpicking. A nice house and good location in Santa Barbara.

Owner's Response: The day we were cleaning for their arrival at the start of the cleaning process my wife fell and broke her arm also injuring elbow and wrist. We spent the day at the hospital while cleaners finished .The previous guests had spilled oil on floor and it was invisible . We were lucky the injuries were not worse . Also that day the kitchen sink developed a leak and the hot tub went out! Both were fixed ,but what a day. As a result we were not able to check the cleaning before the new guests arrived ,and minor mistakes were made by our normally very good cleaners.
