"Our stay in Santa Barbara was wonderful at this beautiful tropical one bedroom hideaway. It has a private patio with Hawaiian tropical plants running waterfall to pond with a bonfire pit. Bicycles, bogie boards , beach chairs, and even a little bike and scooter are available for use. The Mesa steps (200 steps beach access) are in walking distance to a beautiful rocky dog friendly beach. The bedroom and living room areas are upstairs and the kitchen is right by the front door. The layout is very unusual, but manageable. Towels, blow dryer, refrigerator, beach coolers and more are available for use. Wine tasting is an uber ride away and state street shopping is a easy 10 minute ride. We had a wonderful time, and we will be back again to this tropical paradise."

"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."

"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."
