'Perfect 'Home-from-Home' for a Family Vacation in SB' July 2011
The location is great (close to Downtown and the beach yet in a quiet residential area up on Mesa with a great view of the mountains) as are the house and lot (very family friendly with enclosed back yard, ping-pong table, hot tub etc.). Truly 'Home-from-Home'. - Cathal, Denmark
'Santa Barbara Rental - Perfect' December 2011
We rented the house for a week during which our daughter got married. So comfortable and spacious. The house and yards couldn't have been more wonderful for ourselves, the kids with us, and family and friends who visited. The home is complete with everything you need...and more. Ping pong and the hot tub were particular big hits. And fenced yard for our dog! - Bonnie and Ric, Bay Area
'Charming...just perfect!' March 2012
Really nice, cozy place with a great kitchen and toys and movies for the kids. My wife was happy the kitchen had a window to the yard where the kids played so she could cook and they could play. We played ping pong almost every day and liked having a hot tub too. I liked the wireless Internet - was able to take a couple more days vacation that way. We walked to Hilda Rae Park a couple times (took five minutes) where they had great views of the city and good play structure for our five year old. Thank you! - Scott and Judy Mae
'Pleasantly Surprised' December 2011
We had never vacationed using a vac home and we were really happy with what we landed. The house was in a quiet neighborhood and the way the house sits, we didn't have any neighbors, yet we were in a neighborhood. We loved the views (wow!) and the gated yard for our toddler was perfect. She loved the hot wheels car and the dvds. The beds were comfortable and the home was really well-stocked in the linens and kitchen department.
Thanks Lynn and Scott, we'll be back. - Gay and Tom Sheegay, Boise
'Cute, Nice Views' October 2011
We loved this cottage! Just girls for this trip and it was a perfect location. Had fun playing board games, sitting on the patio watching the sunset and bbq'ing. They have a good collection of DVDs. It was close to downtown (loved the shopping) and even though we didn't go to the beach on this trip we noticed they have a boogie board and other beach stuff. We've already planned a repeat girls' weekend for July 2012! Thanks Robinsons, neat place. - Cindy, Jennifer, Megan and Bryce

About the owner: Your hosts have been offering two vacation homes for nine years and love meeting guests and helping them create a comfortable and memorable stay.
We love what we do and take great pride in providing a clean, comfortable and well maintained place that will accentuate and improve time away from home.
Why the Owner Chose The Mesa (Beach Area): We chose all of our homes because of their neighborhood locations, proximity to downtown and the beach and amazing views.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our favorite spot at this particular home is the patio where birds sing, the sun sets and an evening dinner at the patio table is easy with the kitchen close by. It's a relaxing location and when we can get in (very ifew openings these days) we thoroughly enjoy our stay.
