Recent The Mesa (Beach Area) reviews
Can't be beaten - a slice of heaven
"You awake to a 180 degree view of the ocean from atop a 150 foot bluff. A perfect soft lawn awaits your children's lawn games. A blooming rose garden scents the air. The hot tub awaits. An ocean view from nearly every room in the house. Very well appointed and extremely well cared for. I hope to be able to return and I am jealous of you if you go."

"Lynn's house was just right for our use with four related adults and our 8 month old grandson. This is a good value in Santa Barbara. The house is small but large enough to have our individual private space. It is well located on The Mesa on a quiet dead-end street. Our walk through the neighborhood to the Douglas Nature Preserve on the cliffs was perfect. It helped that we could see Anacapa, Santa Rosa, Santa Cruz and even San Miguel Island on our three extremely clear days. Views of the ocean were minimal from the house but the sun reflecting on the hillside was wonderful. Like most of Santa Barbara after 4 years of drought the lawns and plants are thirsty for a good rainstorm. We played bocce and enjoyed the hot tub. Nearby Lazy Acres Market was full of tasty food options. Thank you for having this family lodging option in Santa Barbara."

"I would probably rate this place a 3.5 more than a solid 4. The pictures from this property made me fall in love with the place. Everything was just as pictured including free bike rentals, which we unfortunately did not have time to take advantage of. The decorations and colors were beautiful. The layout was perfect if you are staying with just your significant other or family that you don't need privacy from. I actually loved how there were stairs that led up to the bed. The extra bed in the closet was a cute idea. It's close to the Mesa Lane steps, which we enjoyed and even ate at the Boathouse at Hendry's Beach.
My complaints are that we found a dead rat on the property. It may have seen it's final days from the white cat that we saw sleeping in the driveway. There were also a lot of bugs since some windows did not seem to close all the way. Simple fixes. Also the zen-like garden was great and relaxing but all the outdoor furniture was dirty so there was really nowhere you'd want to sit and relax. It would have been nice to see the stars from the skylight over the bed. Maybe the cover could be retractable. Also, the front window does not have a curtains which made me feel a little uneasy. It does get chilly at night and in the morning, but the bathroom heater and portable heater were not working. If I am going to pay all that money, which includes a cleaning fee I expect the property to already be clean and in top shape when I arrive. All in all, a great little spot to stay. If they made some adjustments I would definitely come back."

"Seven family members were in town for an extended weekend. The view from this home was spectacular. The home was clean, well furnished, and comfortable. The hosts were warm and available. We couldn't have asked for more"
