The Mesa (Beach Area) apartment description

Our rental is newly refurbished to offer our guests a clean, peaceful, and very private retreat from the usual busyness and clutter of our lives. We have chosen simple, yet warm furnishings where comfort and relaxation are a constant invitation. Our property is in the heart of an area called the West Mesa. This Mesa (Spanish for table) is a flat area of miles of residences, businesses, and parks, situated along the cliffs which define the shores of the Pacific Ocean. The air is clear and clean ... and carries a refreshing scent of the ocean's breeze ... often we can hear the waves crashing on the shores, or the seals barking in the surf. The unit is situated in an eclectic neighborhood with a variety of housing and family styles, reflecting a wide range of professions and interests. The streets are fairly quiet and traffic is minimal: so it's a perfect place to stroll around, to relax on the deck for morning coffee, take a walk on the beach, enjoy the sunsets, sip some cool wine, or just sleep in!

A block from our house is the Mesa Shopping Center - a delightful and very local collection of shops, businesses, services, coffee shops, and eateries to fill all your needs! In addition to our neighborhood Mesa Beach, we are a short walk in either direction to many other beaches suitable for sunning, walking, or watersports. For the canine lovers, we have a dog park right around the corner that includes several acres of off-leash trails for you and your dog.

Downtown Santa Barbara, the Marina, and Stearns Wharf and the Santa Barbara Zoo are truly minutes away and easily accessed by bike, bus, or car.

Because Sana Barbara is located on the Central Coast of California, the weather is temperate most of the year. This is a fabulous place to escape from the extreme weather conditions of heat and cold. A light sweater or jacket is enough most of the year.

                      Location

                      The majority of our guests appreciate the convenience of being able to walk to the beach, several parks, restaurants, stores ... and extensive running or walking trails on the nearby Douglas Preserve, which is also dog friendly. Bikes are available for longer ventures. And in Santa Barbara, nothing is more then minutes away by car! We have lots of families here to visit their student adult children at USCB or City College. Our property is 2 miles from SBCC and about 11 from UCSB.

                       

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: I Maxine) came to Santa Barbara over 40 years ago from Southern California to attend the University. My husband John was born and raised in this town where he had maintained his own business for over 25 years. We continue to work parttime in our professions as we fit in as much time as possible to enjoy our children and grandchildren. John is an artisan of custom cabinets and countertops, and I am enjoying my second career in nursing. We especially appreciate the diversity of the creative arts in our community ... galleries, theater, concerts, and more ... since we are also both artists.

                      Why the Owner Chose The Mesa (Beach Area):
                      We have always had a spare room or two in our home designated for renters. Over the years, we have rented to students, professional adults, and an occasional young family. Many years ago, we realized a vacation rental would offer more flexibility in the use of our property. It gives us the chance to offer a lovely place for vacationers, while maintaining the separate privacy of our own residence. Its ideal location offers a wide range of recreational and relaxation choices.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      What we enjoy most about our property is its proximity to one of the most pristine beaches, off the beaten paths of more common tourists sites, that Santa Barbara has to offer: Mesa Lane Beach. It's our place of choice for walking our dog, watching the surf, collecting shells, and enjoying the sunsets. Our neighborhood is quaint, diverse, and very friendly. The nearby cliffs also provide sensory feasts at any time of year. Early Spring and Fall we can watch the humpback whales migrating up and down the coast .... and dophins are practically a daily spectacle. We feel so fortunate to live in this temperate zone. Not only can we suggest beach activities, but also the local hills have miles of hiking trails and dozens upon dozens of wineries that boast some of the finest wines in the World. This property is in one of the best locations for such diverse activities! Also in Santa Barbara, the ARTS are highly appreciated ... and there are endless opportunities to go to theater, galleries, or concerts. Wherever you choose to go, just a walk into the clean air, void of smog, sometimes misty with the ocean breezes or coastal fog, you will be soon feel refreshed and invigorated!
