The Mesa (Beach Area) house description

Please take a look through our long list of guest-entered 5-star reviews here, including the one below, and note that note we take payment ONLY by credit card for your protection.

'Heavenly: This vacation home is perfect. Located in the Mesa area of Santa Barbara and within a block of a bike & walking park with incredible views, it is just blocks from great restaurants, grocery stores, shops, and everything you could possibly need. All this and yet peaceful and private, with the most heavenly back yard retreat accessed by french doors from the kitchen/dining and master bedroom - we loved it! Our 3 sons said it was hard to leave the house to see Santa Barbara with the pool, hot tub & pool table at the house! This was a family vacation and all want to return (which is unusual for a family of 6). Many thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us!' - Dana Staples, Palestine, TX

Charming home in resort quality setting. Living areas and master bedroom open to completely private flagstone patio, palm trees and lush tropical landscaping surrounding the cool blue waters of a pool. A large stone spa tucked into a bamboo grove spills water over a stone waterfall into the pool.

Stereo speakers at the patio and spa, views of the ocean and islands, and a lovely view of the moon rising over the next bluff make for a wonderfully romantic setting--and still within earshot of children sleeping in the two other bedrooms, if you've brought them along.

This three bedroom, two bath house, located in a quiet residential neighborhood, has french doors and sunlight throughout, ocean and island views, and romantic landscape lighting for the evening. Amenities include a gas log fireplace, stereo with CD player and five seperately controlled speaker zones, including the patio and the spa, cable TV with DVD/VCR, a full-sized pool table, a high speed DSL internet connection (wired or wireless) and free local and long-distance calling within the U.S. Everything you need right down to the CDs and guide books.

All this only minutes from everything Santa Barbara has to offer. Walk to Mesa Lane beach--named one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the country--or to Arroyo Burro Beach with its restaurant and snack shop on the sand. Hike in Ellings Park just a block up the hill or in the Douglas Preserve bluffs overlooking the ocean.

Starbucks, restaurants, ice cream, a bookstore, and a gourmet grocery and wine store are also within walking distance. Hop on your bike or in your car and in minutes be at the harbor, pier, and Yacht club, State Street and downtown Santa Barbara, the mission, the courthouse, restaurants and shopping, golf and tennis, and all the other sights of Santa Barbara. Or take the kids to the oceanfront skate park, to rent a surrey on the beachfront bike path, or to the carousel and free summer concerts on the ocean at Chase Palm Park.

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: We are writers who love to travel. We take note in each place we stay of the things we most enjoy, and bring home ideas to make our own Santa Barbara vacation home as good as anywhere we stay. We love the place we call 'Mesa Paradise,' as do our adult children and grandchildren. You can find out more about us at our websites, www.megwaiteclayton.com and http://www.dadapp.blogspot.com/

                  Why the Owner Chose The Mesa (Beach Area):
                  We walked in the door, went straight through to the back, and knew this was the place for us. We've made many improvements, including the addition of the spa, but the fellow we bought from was in landscaping, and the paradise he started is an amazing one.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  A completely private 5-star hotel quality patio, pool, and spa all to yourself. Romantic lighting inside and out. An amazing stereo system with speakers throughout the house, as well as at the patio and at the spa. There isn't a better place to be in love, with our without children along. It's one of the lovely things about renting a house: you can sit on the patio and watch the moon and stars and still be able to hear your children if they wake.
