Recent The Mesa (Beach Area) reviews
"We recently spent a week in Santa Barbara to celebrate our daughter's wedding, and to take a much needed vacation. We stayed at Chrissy's rental home, and thoroughly enjoyed its accommodations! First, the home is well-constructed and immaculate. Second, the beds are incredibly comfortable and covered with quality linens, along with lots of pillows. In addition, Chrissy added thoughtful touches such as quality coffee, an excellent bottle of red wine, and wonderful soaps and body washes in the kitchen and bathrooms. The location of this home is another bonus. It is close to the beautiful Arroyo Burro Beach, as well as the downtown area. Best of all, Chrissy was very responsive, easy to deal with, and honest. We loved our stay at this beautiful home and would give it six stars if we could! We will definitely be staying at her house again!"

"Christmas of 2016 at the Shoreline Retreat. This is a very large comfortable house and the key here is its location. Walking distance to parks, beaches, even the marina and wharf for longer walks. Lazy Acres up the road is an excellent market with cafe, other restaurants and shopping up the road as well. Down the road is the park, the beach, the marina, the wharf and State Street shopping and restaurants. The house itself is giant, it is perfect for large family gatherings. We had 13 people for eight nights and there were even two bedrooms to spare for more guests. It was very clean on arrival and had all the towels, linens and kitchen supplies you need. The hot tub was functional, fun and private. There is a rooftop patio with views and table and chairs. The on-demand hot water heater means hot water for everybody showering at the same time. Washer/dryer both upstairs and downstairs. Thanks for a providing a large holiday gathering place!"

"We had a fabulous time in this beautiful home! The owner is a true pleasure to work with. I was working on a few different legs of our vacation and mixed up the dates that we wanted to stay in Santa Barbara. The owner was more than willing to work with me and thankfully had our correct dates available - saving our vacation!
The house was just as described and perfect for meeting up with our friends with our children (4 adults, 4 children). The loft area was perfect for the kids to zone out in after an exhausting day at the beach or exploring the city. The outdoor area was perfect for hanging out eating and catching up. The house itself is beautiful and in a great location. It's just a three block walk down to Shoreline Park where there are walking paths, fields to run or play soccer/football/etc., a playground and views galore! Just down from there is Ledbetter Beach and a little further is the pier. The Mesa is also a fun place for runners as there are a lot of cool houses to see - although be ready for some hills! We also enjoyed walking up the Mesa to the wonderful restaurants located there.
After we left, we realized that one of our children had left a stuffed bear that she had had since she was born. The owner immediately got in touch with the cleaning service, they found the bear and sent it to us - saving my daughter from even more tears! Phew. We also received our deposit reimbursement in a timely manner!
We couldn't have had a better time and have already started planning our return trip! We highly recommend staying in this lovely home!"
