Sea Glass Cottage - Cool, Fresh and Fun on the Mesa


Perched above the coastline in a peaceful neighborhood on the Mesa just a short walk from the beach, this charming cottage is sparkling, having undergone a complete remodel (2013). Every surface and furnishing has been carefully chosen to create a serene and fresh environment, echoing the cool colors of the sand and sea. Bleached oak floors, crisp white walls and rich textured fabrics in aquamarine, celadon, and turquoise grace every room. Ocean views and a convenient location make this the perfect choice for an upcoming vacation, business trip, or winter getaway.

In Great Room style, the Living Room, Dining Room and Kitchen make up the common living area. Bright and welcoming, a gas fireplace and ocean views are the focal points of the space. Whimsical artwork and decor accent the neutral tones, like jewels scattered on a white sandy beach. The dining table seats 6 comfortably.

The bright and efficient Kitchen features pale gray granite counters and all appliances. All the tools necessary to create great family meals, beach picnics or breakfast on the run for working professionals are provided. Everything in this home is convenient and carefree, including the washer and dryer adjacent to the Kitchen. A breakfast bar overlooks meal preparation and adds informal seating for three.

Just outside the Kitchen is a cozy deck with comfortable seating adorned by more colorful pillows. The barbecue is close to the Kitchen so the chef can be assured of perfect results on the grill. Watch the sunset with a crisp glass of chardonnay while seated at the railing bar.

The terraced backyard slopes up from the home, past the lush lawn. A large oak tree offers shade for the Adirondack chairs below its gnarled branches. A casual picnic table at the top of the yard looks back to the ocean views from the upper level of the property. Lovely!

The Master Bedroom has a king-size bed and faces the tropical palms of the backyard. Bedroom #2 has two twin beds that have been converted to a comfortable king-size bed, making this a perfect home for two couples, or family of four. Upon request, the bed can be converted back to two twin beds (Note: Please make this request at the time of your booking to assure the best configuration for your needs) The Hall Bathroom between the rooms offers dual sinks and walk-in shower.

A sunny deck with ocean views sits atop the garage just outside the Living Room on the front side of this south facing property. More comfortable furniture includes love seat, market umbrellas, chairs, and two chaise lounges for sun worshippers delight! Book early for Summer as this is the ideal spot for 4th of July cocktails before strolling to Shoreline Park for the fireworks display. A one-car garage and driveway offer guests off-street parking for three cars.

Sea Glass Cottage promises to be the ideal destination during the popular Spring and Summer months as well as Santa Barbara's sunny, warm Autumns with its close proximity to the beach and coastal parks. In addition to those seeking fun in the California sun, wintering "snowbirds" will love this ideal location to get out of the cold winter chill back home.

Reserve your own little piece of paradise. Sea Glass Cottage sparkles with possibility.

Relaxing Sea Glass Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sea Glass Cottage in Santa Barbara. To begin, it was a great location - short walk to shoreline and beach areas, wonderful ocean views from deck, and convenient access to shopping! The house was exactly as pictured with a relaxing beach cottage décor and had all the amenities (WIFI, printer, & ipad all pluses). Outdoor landscaping was beautiful as well!

Retreat Dream Home

  • 5 of 5

Loved this home! So clean, airy and bright. The beds, pillows, and bedding are super comfortable - like being at a 5-star resort. This home was built in 1955 and has been totally remodeled but maintains the original bungalow character. I appreciate that the rental property company has strict guidelines for tenants of the house so that it maintains the nice quality for all who want to stay there. Great sitting areas indoor and outdoor. We went to have a quiet retreat and this fit the bill perfectly. It is a 5 minute walk from the beach and 10 minutes to drive to the heart of town - so convenient. There is also a Lazy Acres (think Whole Foods but better) and a great coffee shop in the same center within walking distance (about 1/2 a mile). This home was so peaceful! The house sits in a good neighborhood and of course that comes with all of the gardening activity on the block during the week (but that can't be avoided). Luckily gardeners finish quickly and your peace is restored! The home is one level but you do need to bring your bags up 2 flights of stairs as the home sits high with great views (just an FYI for folks who can't do stairs).

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Sea Glass Cottage. We love it. It is close to the beach and downtown. You can enjoy Santa Barbara sunrises and sunsets from the house. The house is well maintained. The kitchen is fully equipped. The beds and linens are comfortable. We will return on our next stay in Santa Barbara.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

Just back from our second holiday at Sea Glass Cottage. This is a great cottage in an excellent location overlooking the sea and within walking distance of Downtown Santa Barbara. The cottage is fully stocked with everything you need and has been thoughtfully designed and tastefully furnished. Can't recommend it enough.

Perfect Location for the REAL Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Sea Glass Cottage twice and are returning again this year. It is the perfect location, close enough to downtown to enjoy the tourist fun, but set in a neighborhood where you live like the locals.
