About Sunny

The owners are SB locals, 4th generation, that take an active part in the SB lifestyle. We lived at this house for 17 years and have recently moved out of this family friendly neighborhood. Our house is warm and wonderful and we wanted to share it with VRBO guests. 5 - 20 minutes walks will take you to the beach, harbor, pier and State Street! We enjoy hiking, surfing, paddling and bicycling. We love SB and all that it has to offer. Come share in the fun!

Sunny purchased this house in 1992

Why Sunny chose The Mesa (Beach Area)

We are centrally located in SB in an area called the Mesa. The Mesa offers a fun and low key vibe which is quintessential SB. So much fun to be had in a quick walk or a 10 or 15 minute car ride.

What makes this house unique

Almost everyday we take in the beauty of SB beaches. From walking the dog, surfing or stand up paddling we take part in all of it. We live so close to the beaches and parks that being active in the beautiful outdoors is part of our daily habit. Don't want to spend all day at the beach...then stroll down to the Pier to see Ty Warner's Sea Center, go fishing or grab a bite to eat. Take the electric shuttle to the SB Zoo or East beach to play a game of Volley Ball. So many options to choose from!

Great location and great setup of the house!

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we expected and even more. It's walking distance to the beach, which was very nice. The house is in great condition and it worked perfectly for my and my family. I would strongly recommend it.

Lovely home, well-appointed, prettiest bedroom we've ever slept in... great location, easy walk to the beach. Central spot for all the Santa Barbara sight-seeing we did. We would come back here in a heartbeat!

July 4th Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed at this home for the holiday weekend and had a great time. The home is just a 5 minute walk to the beach and the park - perfect for each of our preferred activities. On July 4th we walked down the street and were able to enjoy the fireworks show on the mountain top with all the locals. The best part was being able to avoid the crowds and parking by the marina (which is just down the hill.) The home itself was very clean and had everything we needed including internet, cable TV, a nice patio deck, front yard, and an incredible amount of privacy. Our dog loved this house and so did we! This will be our first choice for a rental in the future.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in SB for our family vacation. Very comfortable for 6 adults. Quiet neighborhood. Beautiful location for walks along the beach. It is doable without a car, but you might want to Uber back from town after walking there and walking around all day. The kitchen was fully stocked, but could use some newer pots and pans (I'm not a fan of old teflon). Kitchen has professional stove for those who like to cook. Plenty of towels and even provided TP and paper towels. (small detail but appreciated it). Steps to the house from the driveway and main entrance. Also various steps in the house so wouldn't be good for anyone with difficulty walking. Owners were very responsive.

Family Vacation with adult kids

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. We were pleased to have great weather. Great area for walks. Walking to town is reasonable but after spending lots of time walking there, the kids took Uber home most days. The house was very nice and perfect for up to 6 people. The kitchen is nicely stocked but would recommend new pots and pans (other than one large nice stainless pot, mostly scratched teflon). Appreciated a nice supply of paper towels and toilet paper:) Plenty of nice towels. House was clean.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 5 star review! We are happy you enjoyed our home. I have purchased a brand new set of pots and pans for the kitchen and for the paper towels...I do not purchase them. One of the many ways I try to reduce waste and be GREEN. Hope to see you in the future.

Family Reunion Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Sunny, thank you for a wonderful and comfortable home to have our family reunion! We enjoyed being close to the harbor, the beach, golf, grocery store and our favorite sushi place Teri Sushi! We enjoyed going out Friday night and staying at the house to BBQ some fresh Salmon, tritip, and veggies Saturday night. The house was clean, stylish, well equipped and fit all our needs. Parking was easy and the neighbors were so friendly. We will look forward to staying here again. Thanks again, Vicki
