Adjacent to the living room and kitchen sits the dining room with seating for eight. The kitchen offers seating for two at the breakfast nook and provides a partial ocean view.

Just outside the kitchen door, step to the outdoor patio and lawn complete with partial ocean views. Patio dining could not be better with warm sun, gentle breezes and sunsets. Two glass tables, complete with umbrella, are provided with seating for up to ten.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: The Robinsons welcome you! The Robinson family goes back to the early days of Santa Barbara when Alfredo Robinson married Anita De La Guerra (same name as the street) and the tradition of providing excellent customer service and warm accommodations continues today. We offer two properties (also vrbo 46290) located next door to each other, perfect for large gatherings of 10 or more. Our goal is to provide a warm and stress free stay in a quiet neighborhood location close to Santa Barbara's amazing attractions, nature and shopping. We're looking forward to providing your home-away-from home. Lynn and Scott

Why the Owner Chose The Mesa (Beach Area):
We chose this property because of its amazing views, quiet neighborhood and close proximity (one mile) to downtown Santa Barbara, State Street and the beaches.
