About Carol Cope

Hello, Thank you for choosing my home to view. I came to Santa Barbara nearly 20 years ago from the Vermont upon accepting a position in the medical field. Many guests are from the east coast and have returned the next year. I think you will be as pleased with my home as much as they have been. I look forward to hearing from you!

Carol Cope purchased this house in 1993

Why Carol Cope chose Alta Mesa

I loved the view of the ocean, the marina and the beach areas. Santa Barbara has a temperate climate and is often referred to as 'The American Rivera'. The views from this home is are exceptional.

What makes this house unique

Spectacular Ocean Views. Secluded and Serene... the three patios have a uniqueness. The patio that overlooks the ocean and is ideal to entertain or have dinner just relaxing in the evening. The side patio is secluded with an adjacent outside fire pit. Sit by the fire pit on late evenings under the starry sky with ocean breezes. The other is perfect place to have your morning coffee or tea. A spacious master bedroom is separated from the other bedrooms and an extra seating area. It has a spectacular view of ocean and harbor. The Master Bathroom is within bedroom area and has very updated clean,modern feel.

Outstanding accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We spent more than 2 months at Carol's house. The house is absolutely wonderful with stylish furniture and all comforts. Downstairs you can enjoy the fireplace and a most equipped and modern kitchen.

Upstairs the master bedroom offers an incredible ocean view.

All bedrooms are elegant with very comfortable beds.

We loved the garden with its calm and inspiring beauty.

Carol is a terrific landlord. She was always ready to help and to assist us. She enjoys having guests and invests a huge effort to keep the house at the top level.

We wish to thank her for our wonderful staying with the hope of coming back soon.

Wedding family

  • 5 of 5

We love this house. It was perfect for 6 people and the location is great. Can't beat the view, the house had everything we needed and was beautifully furnished. The owner was so helpful and gracious and made us feel very welcome. We will definitely rent this one again.

Peaceful with outstanding accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this rental. The owner was friendly and accommodating. The house is more than well equipped with top of the line appliances and beautiful furnishings. It was an easy walk to the beach (a bit more challenging coming back up but a short workout). If you choose to drive, parking is no problem. We would come back again in a heartbeat and plan on doing so next summer.

Chicago area

......... and magnificent landscaped garden that surrounds the house.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely home that has been beautifully decorated and landscaped. The kitchen is fully equipped with quality merchandise and the bedrooms and baths also will satisfy the needs of almost any fastidious tenant.

While the house is aesthetically pleasing and certainly well equipped, I must point out that to access the bedrooms, one has to climb a flight of stairs which might be a problem for an adult with disabilities or someone not physically fit. Also, while the decorating is certainly lovely, there are a number of glass and ceramic items which we needed to move to keep our active two year old from harming herself or the property. I might add that by keeping an eagle eye on the child, this task was definitely achieved and I would not hesitate to rent the property again.

Splendid vacation at "The Mesa" house in Santa Barbara!

  • 5 of 5

The five of us spent a wonderful three nights at this gorgeous, high-end retreat, not far from the beach and from downtown Santa Barbara. The master bedroom was spacious, modern, welcoming, with a splendid view of the sea (although the bed gradually gave up on us), the other bedrooms were warm and cozy, and all had beautiful views as well. The house is splendidly appointed in all respects - we had some elegant dinners at candlelight; shopping for food was a breeze; the patio and garden provided restful seclusion. We would certainly want to go back - but would want to make sure in advance there is no construction or remodeling in the neighbors' house. The owner is extremely helpful and courteous in all interactions, and is justifiably proud of this beautiful home.

Owner's Response: In response to the mention of construction during this guest visit. There was never any large or an extended construction project at my rental. I would not rent my property under these circumstances. My next door neighbor had scheduled a three hour installation of prefabricated California Closets which she scheduled during a vacancy at my property. The owner was informed two days before the installation of the cabinets that the installation date was delayed. When delivered, the quest was residing in my home. It was a situation over which I had no control. All my beds and mattresses are one year old. The master bedroom bed "giving out" was caused by one of three plastic legs that support the California King bed to come loose. It was a minor problem that did not affect the mattress giving way. I corrected it immediately and made a permanent solution to this problem.
