The Mesa (Beach Area) house description

Arroyo Burro Beach House - Located across the Street from Arroyo Burro Beach on Cliff Dr. Oceanfront in Santa Barbara!

Imagine walking from the front door and being on a wide sandy beach where dolphins play, and sunsets are spectacular, all less than a minute walk away. Enter a popular family restaurant and bar set on the beach, or visit the lagoon of Arroyo Burro Creek for birding where night herons guard the beach on moonlit sand. Fly-fishing in the surf, or just plain surfing, Hendry’s Beach (as the locals know it) is prime for both!

The house sits on just over 1 acre with a front lawn that seems the size of a football field! It’s perfect for all sorts of games from bocchi ball to volleyball. The front lawn is also perfectly situated for use as an event setting. Palm trees around the house provide a tropical environment for the ultimate vacation stay.
