House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This is your home away from home when visiting Santa Barbara. Two-bedrooms, 1.5 baths, large covered patio for al-fresco dining, reading, movies, relaxing. Walk up four steps to the large, private, outdoor swimming pool (not heated) and BBQ grill after you've come back from exploring.

Ride the bikes to town or to the harbor or wharf where you can shop, dine out, or just take in the beautiful views and smell the salt in the air (there are two adult and two kids bikes at the house, but you can walk to the Wharf area and rent more.)

Santa Barbara offers wonderful festivities all year round and is famous for it's beautiful Spanish style downtown area, restaurants, beaches, courthouse, museums, zoo, live theater, concerts, shopping and more.

Come stay in a great neighborhood, convenient to everything you need to make your visit fun and relaxing, without the expense of renting a hotel room in this upscale town.

The pool is large, private and has a large deck with patio furniture, BBQ grill and privacy.

If you don't want to walk to Shoreline Cafe (right on the beach!) or Brophy Bros (at the Wharf) for the best clam chowder, fresh oysters, or fish tacos while watching dophins swim by (and the occasional whale), the kitchen has everything you need to make snacks for a picnic at the beach, or cook your meals for an outdoor party in the lanai. There is plenty of seating in the formal dining area, eat-in kitchen or on the patio (there are two!) or pool deck.

The living room has a large fireplace and the den has a TV with cable, and WiFi connection for those with a laptop.

The two bedrooms are cozy . There is a convertible sofa in the den that sleeps one.

The main bathroom has a tub and shower. There is also a powder room convenient to the outdoor patio/pool.

Bicycles, games, books (take one home!), pool toys are all available to make your stay enjoyable.

About Dana Livingstone-Lopez

I am the property manager for my Dad, Bill, who is currently living in a retirement community. The family uses Casa Del Sol as a get away (we live in different areas of the West Coast) and mostly to visit my Dad. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Dana Livingstone-Lopez purchased this House in 1977

Why Dana Livingstone-Lopez chose East Mesa

This is in a quaint residential community, with great neighbors, easy walk to beach and Harbor, with private pool and big lanai for family gatherings. It's all about location, but the beds are new and comfy, and everything you need to make yourself at home is here for you. We also have beach equipment and bicycles.

What makes this House unique

Huge private pool, although it is not heated...it's perfect for warm summer days after walking back from the beach. In the cooler months, it's a nice place to relax and enjoy the sun with a BBQ grill and plenty of patio furniture! We love walking down the street for beach dining, breakfast, lunch and dinner!

                                                                Nice little house with all necessary amenities !

                                                                This house is in a perfect location for seeing Santa Barbara.. very convenient to shops and restaurants, the harbor, parks and walking paths . Dana was so hospitable and so easy to deal with . No problems whatsoever ! The house has a great veranda for hosting friends and a nice pool beyond that . Very dog friendly as well ! I highly recommend it ! Very comfortable ..

                                                                Great location and stay in SB

                                                                Julie P.

                                                                I rented this home for four nights when I was in Santa Barbara. This home is large and comfortable. We enjoyed pool side bbq's and the large patio space. I loved the size of the pool and it was large enough to do morning laps, which is a rare find in a vacation rental. The location is great, centrally located to everything SB has to offer and the neighborhood is quiet and safe. The home was very clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The owner, Dana was a pleasure to work with. I would consider staying here on a return trip.

                                                                nostalgic and perfect

                                                                Lisa F.

                                                                My family of four and small dog found our home away from home. Close enough to the beach to check the surf, walk to the harbor and Brophy Bros. and kayaking adventure. At first the photos seemed it was dated, but the home is very clean, nostalgic, and super comfortable. My two boys enjoyed the pool everyday while my hubby and I had a glass of wine on the big patio. I was even able to stream a workout on my computer on that patio! Cozy for a family but large enough to entertain some friends I had grown up with while there in SB. Attentive owner and neighbors. We absolutely hope to visit this home again and would recommend

                                                                Spacious and quiet, excellent owner

                                                                Marianne G.

                                                                We stayed 10 days starting Easter Sunday and found the house to be well appointed, large with great neighbours on a quiet street close to the beach. It helped to have bring a stroller for the toddler for longer walks. We had a great time and really enjoyed the homey feel of the house. Dana is a great owner, she responds quickly and is very friendly. There is lots of space to spread out even when the kids were sleeping. If we get back to SB, and I hope we do, we will book this spot again.
