About Marty and Elyse Reitzin

We have lived on the Mesa in Santa Barbara for 35 years. Raised our sons in this home. and have put a lot of TLC into it over the years. We have had friends stay with us from around the world and thought we would share what they have come to love and enjoy. We have traveled to many countries and have enjoyed the richness of living real communities, not just where tourists reside. Our sons grew up on the beaches and surf of beautiful Santa Barbara (referred to as the American Rivera), with their first surfing spot at Leadbetter Beach, just three blocks away. You are able to walk to great restaurants, and organic grocery store, on a few blocks away. And public transportation is 2 blocks away. The Mesa is a hidden jewel in Santa Barbara. We look forward to hosting you and being part of your wonderful Santa Barbara experience.

Be glad to speak with you at 805 637 3832

Marty and Elyse Reitzin purchased this house in 1980

Why Marty and Elyse Reitzin chose Santa Barbara

Owners live on property, but you will never see us or hear us unless you want to. You have your own separate unit and yard , with all the privacy of a separate home. We are above the garage in a separate unit. Many of our guests like the fact that we are close if they need us, but have completely privacy.

Our home is the perfect location to the ocean, parks, restaurants, public transportation, bike paths, surfing, boat harbor, and lots of walking ....

What makes this house unique

When guests arrive, our home is their home. They feel the peace and beauty around them. It has a fireplace, hardwood floors. lots of french doors to outside back yard, and a wonderful gourmet kitchen to cook in.

We are rated SuperHosts with other rental share organizations, and we are very accommodating, as we travel quite extensively ourselves and we know what travelers like to feel comfortable and safe.

You will really enjoy this home. It is in a quiet area of the Mesa easily in walking distance of everything you will need. The house is well equipped and very comfortable. You will also enjoy the owners who will do everything to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. If you have a dog...take it. Santa Barbara is a very friendly dog town. I would love to return. Thank you Marty and Elyse!

Martin met us upon arrival. He was very welcoming and showed us all we needed to know to have a wonderful vacation at his and Elyses home.

Location was perfect. Beach was three blocks away. Downtown Santa Barbara was a five minute drive. Very quite neighborhood. We couldn't have asked for more.

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, clean, bright, spacious & our hosts Elise & Marty provided everything imaginable for our comfort. Our criteria was: a well equipped kitchen to cook Thanksgiving dinner & this house delivered over & above expectations down to serving casseroles. I pulled off Thanksgiving after driving all the way from the Seattle area. The backyard was fenced making it safe for our pug & walks in the neighborhood not crawling with cars was delightful. It was a short walk to the ocean. We chose NOT to be close to Santa Barbara proper, preferring to driving the short distance to restaurants or shopping. Mesa has good restaurants & a grocery store nearby which made it convenient. Our week went by too fast.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely, comfortable, tastefully decorated and very well cared for home by the owners located in pretty neighborhood. Well equipped gourmet kitchen...lovely outdoor patio and space to enjoy having breakfast, lunch or just sitting out enjoying lovely weather and pretty plantings...very private too. Only 3 short blocks to the ocean...walk to gourmet grocery and other shops. Walk to Harbor restaurants etc...and to 50 meter heated pool open to public that my husband enjoyed.

Convenient to downtown area also. Would definitely return when visiting Santa Barbara.

Great escape from cold, snowy Pennsylvania. Thank you owners for sharing your lovely home.

Shoreline steps to beach
Car: recommended

Welcome to our Santa Barbara home, located in a beautiful, family friendly neighborhood three blocks toShoreline Park. Shoreline Park is a Santa Barbara favorite, and offers beautiful views of the islands, mountains, and harbor area with stairs to the beach if you feel like surfing, swimming or taking a beach walk (the tide pools are awesome!). Our home is also within walking distance of the Harbor which boasts of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club, the Maritime Museum, the exciting breakwater, and top notch restaurants overlooking the marina and stunning Santa Barbara mountains. We are also only minutes to the Pier (Stearn's Wharf), Santa Barbara City College, State Street and downtown Santa Barbara. You can pick up the bike path at Shoreline Park and ride along the beach all the way to Montecito and visit our lovely ocean-front zoo and bird refuge along the way.

Our home is nestled in a small neighborhood, with custom homes lining the block. Many guests walk to the harbor for boat rides, great dining, and bike paths to discover Santa Barbara. Excellent location, and lovely area.

We have the distinguished rating as Super Hosts on Airbnb, and over 53 Five star reviews. Our private back yard for your child and/or dog, our quiet neighborhood, its close proximity to beaches, parks, organic health food store, restaurants, gas station, bus lines, we have it all, just blocks walk.

There is ample parking in front of the home on the street. We live on the premise in a separate apartment above the garage. If you need anything we are there for you, if you don't , you won't see us or hear us. Your yard is all yours, privately fenced in with top rated Gas barbecue grill, and lounge chairs on deck under the Pergola.

We have a fully stocked gourmet kitchen for your pleasure, with top end stainless steel appliances and everything you need to have a wonderful vacation.

As of January 1, 2017, we are listing our home for only 30 days or longer per stay, due to a new Short Term Ordinance within the City of Santa Barbara. Please contact us with details at elyse@mobilestorm.com. Spring and Summer months book up very rapidly.
