Recent The Mesa (Beach Area) reviews
Lovely, well-stocked house with amazing backyard
"We had a great extended weekend at this Santa Barbara rental home. The pictures do not do the house justice; everything is nicer in person. The house has everything you need -- soap, shampoo, ample linens, paper towels, laundry detergent, beach equipment and towels, games, books, puzzles -- and then there's the backyard with a built-in barbecue, outdoor shower (great for washing the sand off after the beach!), and a luxurious in-ground spa. The location is good also; we were able to walk to Hendry's Beach and the Boathouse restaurant. It's about a mile down the road from a strip mall that has a grocery store (Albertson's), a bagel shop, and a few other eateries, and it's a quick drive to downtown Santa Barbara. The owners are easy to work with and the security deposit was promptly refunded via PayPal which worked much better than waiting weeks for a check like with most properties. We'd definitely stay here again. Thank you!"

"The home accommodated six people (three generations) with ease. Part of the house had been recently renovated, but the whole house felt "new". Premium finishes, linens, etc. The floor plan was just right...we could be together or apart. The weather was unseasonably warm and the house doesn't have air-conditioning. Between the fans (in every room) and ocean breezes, we were very comfortable. The family space off the kitchen has folding doors that open to the outside with a view to the park across the street and ocean. It's the best room in the house. We started (coffee) and ended (wine) every day there. The owner was very accessible and timely when we needed him. I would return to the area just to stay in the house again."

"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."

"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!"
