Recent The Mesa (Beach Area) reviews
Relaxing girls bachelorette weekend!
"I booked the two house combo for a 9 person bachelorette party and we fit very comfortably between the two houses! The houses were stocked with plenty of towels, sheets, blankets, beach towels etc. Leilany was very quick to respond to any emails I sent leading up to the trip.
The house is about a 10-12 minute walk to the beach.
We all had a great time!"

"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."

"We rented this property for our family to stay in for a week as our son was getting married in Santa Barbara. We had a small rehearsal dinner there outside in the back yard. It was absolutely stunning. The view is unbelievable and we would find ourselves sitting out back at all times of the day to look at or listen to the ocean. You cannot tell how gorgeous the view is from these pictures!! The house had everything we needed and Sam and Paula were so great to check on us to make sure everything was in order. They were very wonderful to work with. We would definitely stay there again if we visit SB again. We made wonderful memories there and are so thankful that we happened on this house to make them in!"

"This house is very well appointed, and well set up with quality furnishings, appliances, linens, and other supplies. The owner and manager truly care that you have a top notch experience when you stay in this home, and it shows.
Jill is a wonderful and very responsive and reasonable manager - my wife wrote some follow up detail questions to her the day before we left to figure if we needed to pack a few additional things and received a quick response.
The house is very well taken care of - although pets are allowed, it is kept immaculate, and our furry fellow was well behaved and enjoyed the space. Kitchen is beautiful with great amenities including a wine cooler. Spectacular bathrooms, plenty of good linens, and bath supplies. Beds are exceptional but they are high. Keep that in mind if you want to bring kids or elderly as that might not suit them well.
Speaking of height, also n.b. that the ceiling fans can seem a bit low. I know this sounds nitpicky but, if you're a tall person and the fans are running, just watch out before you stick your arms up.
The yards are immaculate, and great quality patio furniture and we loved the outdoor shower before coming in from the beach - a great way to keep sand out of the house.
Location is great. This is a quiet residential neighborhood with a nice mix of older and newer homes - this one is clearly newer. Short walk to the beach, dog park, downhill to the larger beach, and a 5 minute drive to downtown. What more could we ask?
Local recommendation: Breakfast at Hendry's Boathouse (5 minutes away down cliff drive, away from DT) is a great place to start your morning."
