Property Details

Updated: May 17, 2015
4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

We have recently finished a complete remodel of this lovely beach home, including the addition of a brand new swimming pool with spa. The house is beautifully furnished, but at the same time is extremely family and dog friendly. No worries about putting your feet up! The pool is heated and has an automatic cover. The newly landscaped yard is fully enclosed including self-latching gates, is amply furnished for outdoor leisure activities, is well lit in the evenings and includes a hot water outdoor shower. The house has three bedrooms downstairs: the first and second bedrooms share a bathroom and each contains ample closet space, a queen bed, and a flat screen TV; the third downstairs bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a shower/tub combination, two twin beds and a flat screen TV. It is adjacent via French doors to the covered and furnished porch with an ocean view overlooking the pool. The upstairs bedroom is furnished with a queen bed, has its own bathroom and flat screen television, and a private balcony with an ocean view overlooking the pool. The spacious open floor plan living room at the front of the house includes a 60' flat screen television and lends itself to convivial game and movie nights. The sofa in the living room converts into a queen bed. The kitchen has a small ocean view and is open to the dining/living area for easy entertaining. There is a full size washer and dryer located in a separate room adjacent to the kitchen. The house includes an attached single car garage with room in the driveway for tandem parking of two additional cars. The front yard contains two citrus trees, a Valencia orange and a Eureka lemon. The house is equipped with cable, internet, wi-fi, five flat screen televisions and multiple portable speakers for your digital music library, a porta-crib and high chair, and beach chairs and umbrellas. We stock the house with all of the amenities you will need to get your vacation started, including laundry supplies, shampoo/conditioner/body wash, paper goods for the bathroom and kitchen, spices, condiments, coffee, tea, sugar and creamer. We want you to walk in the door and feel right at home!

Fabulous Home

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 celebrated mothers day weekend here and it was absolutely perfect. The owner, Betsy, has created a place of beauty and rest. She has considered the needs of her guests and provided a wonderful place to unwind and connect with friends/family. We used the pool every day and the hot tub every night, perfect!! Our family enjoyed the proximity to State Street and the fabulous shopping and food. The highlight for me was the daily 2 block walk to 1,000 Steps; a gorgeous beach where we saw whales, dolphins and sea otters! An outstanding location, and a delightfull, beautiful home. Thank you, Betsy for a memorable mothers day. We will definitely be back again.

We came to Santa Barbara for a moms getaway and this house was amazing. The pool was perfect and the hot tub as well. The decor was so awesome and every aspect of the house was just perfect. The beds were very comfy. There is nothing I would change about this home. It felt very homie. I am hoping to make this a yearly trip and this house was just amazing. Besty the owner was so friendly and sincer. The whole experience was awesome and I can't wait to book this house again. Thank you for such a great stay!!

Great location, family-friendly, lovely personal touches

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here over spring break with 3 couples plus our small children. The house is stylishly upgraded and well-appointed. The owners are thoughtful and provide all the information you need to have a fun and stress-free vacation. The kids loved the pool and popcorn machine (!) and the adults loved the hot tub (note: it does take all day to heat). The house was so great that we never went to a restaurant for dinner - we enjoyed cooking and grilling and enjoying the comforts of the home. During the day we enjoyed Mission Santa Barbara, Hendry's Beach, biking near the pier, kayaking, and Bacara spa. Lovely trip overall.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review, Karen. The hot tub maintains the pool temp of 82 degrees until manually turned on, and then ramps up to 102 degrees in about 45 minutes. I will check the operating instructions to make sure they are completely clear.

April Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5
The house was very tasteful and well appointed. The bathrooms are very nice and the beds are comfortable. I did think it looked smaller than the photos but it worked well for our family get together which included our twenty something children and their partners. The location is great with a beach across the street, nice walks along the shoreline park and a great gourmet food store about a mile away. Would definitely consider it again.

Winter Vacation at the Beach

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful time at your house! The location was perfect for walking to Shoreline Park and to the retail and restraurants on the Mesa. There was plenty of room for both kids and grandkids - and the backyard was such a bonus with the pool and outdoor eating options. Thank you for such a well-appointed kitchen and bath - we didn't have to worry about anything! We stayed for two months and were so glad we picked this as our home away from home!

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5
The house is even better than in the photos! The owners have everything well marked and the house is well stocked with supplies. It's very user-friendly, and feels homey. The pool and hot tub are fantastic and the backyard gets great sun exposure. One block down from the house, there are stairs to the beach, and when the tide is out (after 10:00 a.m.) you can walk along the beach to the harbor and City College (for a workout at the track). Great location and great amenities make this an outstanding rental choice in SB.

From the Owner

In my experience, people who visit Santa Barbara want to live at the beach, while being close to the shops, restaurants and theaters. This property gives you all of that and a swimming pool as well! It is on a quiet street but close to everything. And, you can walk around the corner and be on the sand.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Santa Barbara Airport at 10 Miles Nearest Barpub : Mesa Cafe and Bar at 0.9 Miles Nearest Golf : Santa Barbara Municipal at 4 Miles Nearest Train : Amtrak Station at 1 Miles Nearest Motorway : Highway 101 at 2 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Shoreline Cafe (South) or Mesa Cafe (North) at 0.9 Miles Nearest Ski : Big Bear Mountain at 180 Miles Nearest Beach : West Beach at 0.2 Miles Car: recommended

This property is located on the border between West Beach and the Mesa beach neighborhood. It is one street off of the coast line, affording easy walking access to the beach without exposing residents to traffic noise. Equally close to both the tourist attractions of Stearn's Wharf (and the neighboring shops, wine tasting rooms and restaurants) and the Mesa commercial district where Santa Barbara's finest grocery store, Lazy Acres, is located, along with Starbucks, farm-fresh produce stands and many local eateries.Santa Barbara City College and its terrific athletic facilities are within walking distance. In this part of town you will also want to check out the Douglas Family Preserve, an ocean front nature preserve given to the community with the generous assistance of local residents Kirk and Michael Douglas; Ellings Park, a favorite of tennis players, hikers, hang gliders and bridal parties; Hendry's Beach, one of our best dog-friendly beaches with dog bathing facilities and ocean front dining; the historic Los Banos Del Mar, a heated 50m 7 lane lap pool for serious swimmers, with an adjacent wading pool for the little ones; the Carriage Museum, which houses many of the historical vehicles which take part in our annual Fiesta Parade (the largest equestrian parade in the Nation). Of course, Santa Barbara is a small community so everything it has to offer is no more than a ten minute car ride away.

From the Owner

The swimming pool, of course. And there is only one bedroom upstairs if part of your group wants peace and privacy. The backyard provides plenty of outdoor living space with a covered porch as well as sunny areas and a propane fueled BBQ. The decor is 'cheerful chic' and reflects the Santa Barbara beach lifestyle. When you come back sandy from the beach you can stand under a hot shower by the pool to rinse off, and then step right into the spa and relax, or choose the heated pool for a lively game of water volleyball. Cooking is a dream in the brand new kitchen, decorated in blues and greens with a wall of mosaic glass tiles. And the cook can chat with the rest of the adults, whether seated at the kitchen counter or spread out in the spacious living room. Meanwhile, the kids can retreat to the back bedroom to watch their own TV.
