About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This romantic oceanfront home in Santa Barbara sits on a bluff near the lighthouse with panoramic views of the channel Islands and the Pacific Ocean. The beach side of the house is all windows where one can sit and watch the whales pass by and the dolphins play. The deck provides panoramic 180 degree views of the beach, perfect for watching sunsets. Stairs to the beach are only a block away.

The house is open and spacious with vaulted ceilings and a beautiful kitchen providing all the necessary appliances, granite counter tops and space needed to create beautiful meals.

The location is just one and a half miles from the marina, which marks the beginning of the downtown area. From the Cliffside deck during the summer on Wednesday nights you can watch the sailing races turn about the windward mark (located in line with the house) and blow their spinnaker.

Santa Barbara's downtown is known as a great place for a romantic get-away with fine dinning, great shopping and an active night life. Even the mountains are only 5 miles away and have some spectacular hikes, views, and Indian cave paintings. The sound of the ocean waves at night will lull you to sleep in this ocean retreat.

A 37 foot motor yacht is available for charter and for sunset cruises.

For large groups, The Ocean Oasis can be rented in conjunction with the vacation rental next door. To view this home, please go to VRBO property #242803

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

Why the Owner Chose East Mesa, Santa Barbara, CA, USA:
This is my favorite property. The property goes down to the high tide mark, but retains it's safety and seclusion. The grove of Eucalyptus and the ocean make it a zone of comfort.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It has a unique elevated view of the ocean. The dolphins have chosen the fishing hole at about 10 O'clock as their routine fishing grounds. They are in front of the house as a routine presence. It is very unique and grounding experience. During whale migration, the females and children run the kelp bed in front of the house. They are right there where you cn hear them exhale.
