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 35 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, as the City of SB has made short term rentals unlawful. Spring and Summer months book up very rapidly.

Our number is 805 637 3832 and it would be our pleasure to answer any of your questions. Please don't hesitate to call or email at Elyse@

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: 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 2blks 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

Why the Owner Chose East Mesa, Santa Barbara, CA, USA:
Owners live on property, but you will never see us or hear us unless you want to. You have your own home 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 ....

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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. elyse @
