              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: I am a California native from Laguna Beach (the O.C.). Moved here in 18 years ago. It doesn't get any better than living here in Santa Barbara. There's so much culture, festivals, and fun things to do. I have a real estate and property management background. I enjoy being domesticated and hospitable. If I could make your stay more enjoyable, please let me know. We take pride in our properties and are responsive to any of our renters needs. Since we are local, we deal with our guests directly – from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between. All of our properties are fully furnished and have all the amenities of home! Enjoy your stay. Namaste

              Why the Owner Chose The Mesa (Beach Area):
              As with all Mesa locations, access to just about anything is simple and close-by. Downtown Santa Barbara is just a 5 minute drive, or you may walk to local ethnic eateries, family favorite restaurants, or bustling coffee shops. Save time to explore one of Santa Barbara's finest gourmet markets, Lazy Acres, which is just down the street. Mesa Park is also within walking distance but if you are ready for a bit more of a stroll or bike ride, venture out to the harbor or Sterns Warf. Property is located nearby Douglas Family Preserve for a breathtaking view on the bluffs above the waves of the Pacific. Shoreline Park and coastal beaches are a little further for great exercise!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              I feel in love with my home because of the desirable location, big lot on a cul de sac with lots of neighborhood charm on a tree-lined street very private and backyard living makes you feel like your the only house on the street. House has 5 oak trees in backyard with lush views of vegetation and blues skies from every room. Kitchen has all stainless steel appliances with granite counter tops an 8 foot island in the middle for dinning, cooking/baking, and entertaining. Main bathroom has been remodeled with a tropical pebble shower floor and granite counter. The energy in this house is very calm and relaxing. Sleeps 6 comfortably.
