The Mesa (Beach Area) house description
A lovely 1930’s Spanish-style home located in the family-friendly Mesa neighborhood is now available for rent after extensive renovations. This 3 bedroom, 3 bath home is within walking distance of the beach, nearby restaurants, local cafés, and grocery stores. Its ¼ acre lot provides ample grounds for entertaining or relaxing in the two separate patio areas or expansive front lawn. Privacy and security are provided by an adobe wall and extensive shrubbery around the entire property.
The recent renovations have restored and upgraded the finest qualities of the house. Handmade tile floors throughout, wood-beamed ceilings, and fireplaces in both the kitchen and living room are just a few of the features that create a sense of comfort and craftsmanship in the home. The ceramic artist hired to redo the floors created the tiles onsite and if you look closely, you might even find the occasional dog print left by a curious canine that wandered in to look at his handiwork.
On the top floor is a master bedroom with wood-beam ceilings and its own private bathroom. The second bedroom down the hall also has wood-beam ceilings, two twin beds, and features a quaint bathroom with a built-in tub.
The ground floor features a living room with high, wood-beam ceilings, a lovely fireplace and a wide screen TV. The third bedroom, with a queen bed, looks onto one of the garden areas and side patio which are accessed directly through French doors. Next to this bedroom is a white tile bathroom featuring a built-in bathtub.
In the kitchen, top of the line appliances and spacious tile countertops provide inspiration and ample room for cooking up a gourmet feast or preparing a simple picnic to take to the beach or park. Both patios are directly adjacent to the kitchen and are wonderful places to sit and sip cool drinks or enjoy your meals al fresco.
A ten minute walk will bring you to the newly renovated Mesa shopping area. Two organic produce markets, a Starbucks’s, video rental store, Albertsons, pizzerias, and drug stores are a few of the shops available to meet all your needs. A ten minute walk in the other direction brings you to steps which lead directly to the beach. Continue a bit further through the neighborhood and the Douglas Family Preserve is an ocean bluff park with a serene and commanding view of the Pacific and Channel Islands. Below this park is Hendry’s Beach, where a restaurant, bathrooms, and sandy beachfront is an excellent place to spend the day at the ocean. Large beach towels are available for your use.
After a visit to the beach, a Mexican tiled outdoor shower is available to wash away the sand. Next to the shower is a fully-supplied laundry room with both a Miele washer and dryer.
Whatever style of vacation you are looking for, whether a peaceful retreat, shopping, trips to the beach or mountains, we think this home will make an excellent base from which to explore all that Santa Barbara has to offer.

A Spanish Hacienda representing the true flavor of Santa Barbara
A Spanish Hacienda representing the true flavor of Santa Barbara
My cousin met the owner, Stephanie, and she was a very warm welcome host. Our small family re-union arrived at the Hacienda with a bottle of wine waiting and specialty coffee for the next morning. Both adults and teenagers had all the amenities, while we particularly enjoyed the social aspect of sitting outside with all the gardens around the house. It was so comfortable when we were at the house, it felt like home. Close to the beach, stores, both within a reasonable walking distance. The kitchen had every appliance known to man and all the rooms were much larger than I anticipated. Comfortable beds, hot showers and was very clean upon our arrival. A true gem and would recommend to anyone.

This house was amazing in all aspects - the location - just a few blocks from a beautiful beach we walked to everyday to the outdoor patio where we sat each morning and evening, to the lovely owner who met us on arrival. The house has been updated yet the history remains in all rooms from the wood vaulted ceilings, to the tile work and the fabulous kitchen. The owner has an incredible design sense. We would stay again in a heart beat.
