East Mesa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 office, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This charming 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom home is located in the Mesa neighborhood, Santa Barbara's quaint little village by the ocean. A strong Mediterranean ambiance pervades the lush surroundings of the residential neighborhood along its shoreline and on its hillsides. The property is only three blocks from the nearest beach access, 4 blocks from the Shoreline park and the Mesa Shopping Center, and a 5-minute drive from downtown Santa Barbara.

The house is tastefully decorated with high quality furniture and exquisite artwork. The fireplace and the wood floors add more warmth to this delightful house. You can relax in the secluded backyard, play a croquet match, nap in the hammock, dine in the patio, and end your day looking at the stars from the 6-person Jacuzzi. The remodeled open kitchen has newer appliances and all the necessary amenities. There is a breakfast area as well as a dining room. No smoking inside the house please.

A Great Week at Mesa Delight!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great week in Santa Barbara and this home was the perfect place to stay. The owner, Alejandra met us at the house with the keys and a notebook of information. The house was big, bright and very comfortable. The walk down to the beach was quick and the beach amazingly beautiful. It truly didn't look real!!

We were able to get to all the main attractions quickly and easily. Even the ride to and from the airport was a breeze. The grocery store and several restaurants were close by and it was really nice being able to eat breakfast at the house every morning. All and all it was a great week and this wonderful home made it that much better!!

Beautiful house, wonderful stay, happy family

  • 5 of 5

It was truly a delight to stay for a week at "Mesa Delight". The house is clean, accommodating and BRIGHT. During the day the home gets wonderful light and at night the streets are quite and tranquil. Although it's usually pretty difficult for me to fall asleep, I never had one problem with noise.

I love the way the kitchen feels open. It was perfect for the two nights that we dined inside. In the mornings we usually drank our coffee outside on a table. Even though it was January, the weather was wonderful.

We discovered some wonderful little treasures nearby. Down the street is "1,000 Steps", a staircase that takes you down to a beach that seems like the best secret in town. Up the street is Mexican Fresh. Probably the best burrito I've ever had. Alcazar is a fun tapas bar with great art. And, Lazy Acres is a great organic supermarket to get all your needs. There were two days we didn't even use our car. It was so relaxing!

I'm excited for the next opportunity to stay here. This place is highly recommended!!!

A hidden jewel in gorgeous Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

This has been one of our best finds in years! We are retired and have been taking trips lasting one to two weeks to different parts of the country The place ended up being way above our expectations. The photos in the ad don't really do justice to it. It had not just all the possible comforts but also exquisite art on the walls, great taste in the furniture and general decor, and great patio in the back where we spent time every day just basking in the sun and reading on the hammock sorrounded by fruit trees and enjoying the quiet. The kitchen and bathrooms were very nicely stocked, and in general every item available to us in the house was tasteful and of high quality as well as in impecable condition. The house was very sunny and roomy, and the location could not have been better, within walking distance to the beach, to very nice stores and great restaurants. The owner was extremely gracious and helpful, and everything about this place made our stay one of the most pleasant and relaxing experiences we can remember. Not only would we recommend this house to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Santa Barbara, but we have started talking about another stay there for ourselves in the near future.

Affordable luxury steps from gorgeous beach

  • 5 of 5

This property really exceeded my expectations. I organized a last minute bachelor weekend for my 35 year old best friend and the rest of the groomsmen - the groom is a subdued sort, no vegas for him. We are an east coast group, but I had spent some time in Santa Barbara and knew the area well and have stayed in several other rental properties in various parts of town. Mesa Delight has been my best experience to date. Our hostess made everything easy and was incredibly accommodating given how little notice I gave of our interest. Communication was detailed and she was very helpful in terms of helping me figure out what we should do with our limited time. The house itself is modern with a bit of latin flair, is meticulously clean, boasts a gorgeous art collection, and had plenty of room for a group of guys to spread out both inside the living area and outside in the yard. The hot tub was welcome perk. The beach is a few hundred feet away and is one of the nicest stretches in the Santa Barbara area - it's located a the bottom of a long winding set of stairs carved into a cliffside and the sand is perfect. sort of a hidden gem and it was lightly trafficked and filled with locals rather than tourists from what we could tell. I would gladly stay here again and likely well. Thank you for a wonderful home away from home!!
