Ocean Bluff Cottage - Oceanfront and Impeccably Restored on the Mesa

Ocean Bluff Cottage - Oceanfront and Impeccably Restored on the Mesa

Overview

Property Details

Updated: May 27, 2015
3 Bedroom/2 Bath plus 1 half bath - Sleeps 6

Mesa neighborhoods are loved for their proximity to Santa Barbara's local beaches, quiet neighborhoods, and amazing ocean views. This quaint home will surprise and delight guests with its rustic cabin feel blended with upscale, contemporary amenities. Located on a quiet acre in a private 5 acre enclave, the home was once home to a former University Professor whose art and book collection still remain. It is a very special spot and has a warm and welcoming appeal.

The home was recently restored (2014) with a mind to keep the original 1930's beach cabin look and feel. This understated masterpiece features original knotty pine paneling, all new furnishings, select precious antiques, and brand new oriental rugs in 1930's style. The owners' design aesthetic is steeped in a desire to maintain the traditional rustic feel of a remote cabin, but richly appointed for today's discriminating traveler.

Perched on the bluffs above the blue Pacific, there is no question where the heart of this home is...anywhere a window faces the sweeping ocean and island views. A brand new Spa sits on the oceanfront terrace offering a relaxing reward after a long run on the beach, or busy day of sight seeing. The surrounding yard with pathways of brick and garden beds filled with blooming flowers and tropical plantings add the finishing exclamation point to a home that displays true pride of ownership.

The Dining Room features a fireplace, a wall of windows, and a wonderful supply of special dishes and serving pieces to set an amazing table. The sunset from here will be the only dessert one needs!

The newly remodeled kitchen was professionally designed for ease of use. Its antiqued blue finished cabinetry mirrors the blue Pacific. The kitchen was designed with outdoor eating and entertaining in mind.

The Living Room is appointed with new white linen couches that face the fireplace and a large flat screen TV. Walls are lined with vintage books of classic English and American literature - many dating back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

All bedrooms are outfitted with luxury linens. Each feels romantic and special. The Master Bedroom offers a fireplace and a walk-in closet. Bedroom #2, with a king-size bed, faces backyard views and opens to a large deck overlooking lush gardens. Bedroom #3, with 2 full-size beds, shares the same views and deck.

There are two Hall Bathrooms, one with a bathtub and walk-in shower; the other with a shower/tub combination.

Set apart from the main house, ensconced in the garden, is a redwood Garden House. This sweet spot is perfect as an escape to just sit and read or, for vacationing/working professionals, a quiet place to get some work done. This one room getaway has cable internet and a portable space heater - no water or bathroom facilities. It also comes with a pair of blue Jays that may occasionally be looking for a handout of peanuts!

This beloved home will have happy travelers returning year after year. Ocean Bluff Cottage is sure to become everyone's favorite "home away from home" above the blue coastal waters with captivating island views in the distance!

Note: Due to the bluff top location, children ages 1-9 are not allowed at this home.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. We have had a fabulous week here in Santa Barbara. We enjoyed the beautiful views from sunup to sun down. We enjoyed watching the whales, dolphins, and surfers. The home was very comfortable with everything we could possibly need. We are looking forward to returning soon.

Beachside Celebration

  • 5 of 5
This is a gorgeous property!!! It's situated right above the ocean with expansive views of islands and sunsets with sounds of waves coming ashore to the beach below. Just half a block away is a stairwell that leads to a surf spot.
My fondest memory was of warm evening spent in the company of friends to have a birthday dinner out on the patio. It was a clear night, the sea shone as a dark jewel and the sky was like a million sparkles from the Milky Way. The property is private and beachy comfortable with views of gardens or the ocean from every room.
We all loved the place, it has a great vibe and embodies total California charm!
The City of Santa Barbara has lots of fun things to do with Montecito right next door. Shopping on State Street, the Mission, the rose garden and wine tasting at the Funk Zone were some of our highlights.
We would highly recommend this most special and spectacular property and home!

Extraordinarily beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I arrived in Santa Barbara on January 13, 2015 from cold, cold Minnesota. What a wonderfully inviting home awaited us on the cliff on the mesa! The delightful owner, Wallie, was there to greet us and show us all the many perks that the home offered. She, and her husband Steve, continued to be a great resource while we were there. They lovingly take excellent care of their beautiful property. They live in Santa Barbara.

We were excited to begin our stay in the home. It was a darling three bedroom home with knotty pine interior (just like the cabin we own in northern Minnesota). I think that's what drew us there to begin with. But the view from the home, out to the Channel Islands, was magnificent! And during our stay, we saw whales, dolphins, a shark, numerous water birds, surfers, and so much wildlife below us and up close (but bring your binoculars to get a spectacular view)! There were Scrub Jays that would eat peanuts right out of your hand.

And the home was cozy, but had lots of room; the beds were comfortable; the kitchen was well stocked; the TV was a large screen (and had Apple TV for Netflix, etc.); the hot tub was roomy and comfortable; the yard was beautiful; the furniture was comfortable. I cannot say enough good things about this property!

And there is so much to do in the Santa Barbara area (walking, hiking, biking, wine tasting, restaurants galore, shopping, sight seeing, waterfront activities, and more). We can't wait to go back!

Beautiful Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5
In March of this year, my family and I spent a week in the most utterly charming and beautiful cottage with a guest house located on the cliff side (Mesa) of Santa Barbara close to the famed Henry's Beach. The cottage itself was just gorgeous, a brand new kitchen and bathrooms, a 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath romantic getaway. Immaculately clean and you could feel the love that the owners had put into this incredible get away. When we came home, I felt totally refreshed and completely relaxed. I can highly recommend this gorgeous cottage.
