POOL, SPA, FIREPLACE NEAR BEACH FOR ROMANTIC PRIVACY OR FAMILY FUN

Santa Barbara House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 full bath house, sleeps 6

Please take a look through our long list of guest-entered 5-star reviews here, including the one below, and note that note we take payment ONLY by credit card for your protection.

'Heavenly: This vacation home is perfect. Located in the Mesa area of Santa Barbara and within a block of a bike & walking park with incredible views, it is just blocks from great restaurants, grocery stores, shops, and everything you could possibly need. All this and yet peaceful and private, with the most heavenly back yard retreat accessed by french doors from the kitchen/dining and master bedroom - we loved it! Our 3 sons said it was hard to leave the house to see Santa Barbara with the pool, hot tub & pool table at the house! This was a family vacation and all want to return (which is unusual for a family of 6). Many thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us!' - Dana Staples, Palestine, TX

Charming home in resort quality setting. Living areas and master bedroom open to completely private flagstone patio, palm trees and lush tropical landscaping surrounding the cool blue waters of a pool. A large stone spa tucked into a bamboo grove spills water over a stone waterfall into the pool.

Stereo speakers at the patio and spa, views of the ocean and islands, and a lovely view of the moon rising over the next bluff make for a wonderfully romantic setting--and still within earshot of children sleeping in the two other bedrooms, if you've brought them along.

This three bedroom, two bath house, located in a quiet residential neighborhood, has french doors and sunlight throughout, ocean and island views, and romantic landscape lighting for the evening. Amenities include a gas log fireplace, stereo with CD player and five seperately controlled speaker zones, including the patio and the spa, cable TV with DVD/VCR, a full-sized pool table, a high speed DSL internet connection (wired or wireless) and free local and long-distance calling within the U.S. Everything you need right down to the CDs and guide books.

All this only minutes from everything Santa Barbara has to offer. Walk to Mesa Lane beach--named one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the country--or to Arroyo Burro Beach with its restaurant and snack shop on the sand. Hike in Ellings Park just a block up the hill or in the Douglas Preserve bluffs overlooking the ocean.

Starbucks, restaurants, ice cream, a bookstore, and a gourmet grocery and wine store are also within walking distance. Hop on your bike or in your car and in minutes be at the harbor, pier, and Yacht club, State Street and downtown Santa Barbara, the mission, the courthouse, restaurants and shopping, golf and tennis, and all the other sights of Santa Barbara. Or take the kids to the oceanfront skate park, to rent a surrey on the beachfront bike path, or to the carousel and free summer concerts on the ocean at Chase Palm Park.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The moment we entered the house we new we made a wise decision. Our stay was a dream come true. The house had everything you need, from towels to kitchenware. We were minutes from State St and the beach.



Mac (the owner)made the process so easy. This was one of the best summer vacations we had.



We're down for next year!!!!!

We are writers who love to travel. We take note in each place we stay of the things we most enjoy, and bring home ideas to make our own Santa Barbara vacation home as good as anywhere we stay. We love the place we call 'Mesa Paradise,' as do our adult children and grandchildren. You can find out more about us at our websites, www.megwaiteclayton.com and http://www.dadapp.blogspot.com/

Mac Clayton and Meg Waite Clayton purchased this house in 2000

We walked in the door, went straight through to the back, and knew this was the place for us. We've made many improvements, including the addition of the spa, but the fellow we bought from was in landscaping, and the paradise he started is an amazing one.

A completely private 5-star hotel quality patio, pool, and spa all to yourself. Romantic lighting inside and out. An amazing stereo system with speakers throughout the house, as well as at the patio and at the spa. There isn't a better place to be in love, with our without children along. It's one of the lovely things about renting a house: you can sit on the patio and watch the moon and stars and still be able to hear your children if they wake.

We had a delightful week in this beautiful home. We could quite happily have spent the week without leaving the house once! We were very impressed with the high quality of everything in the house especially towels and bed linen. Communication with owners was excellent.

Better than expected in the Mesa

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough good things about "Mesa Paradise." My husband and I, along with our 17 year old and 20 year old kids, enjoyed every minute of our time there. We knew we were truly in paradise when we opened the front door, and looked through the french doors that lead to the beautifully manicured back yard with pool, waterfall and hot tub. Palm trees provide plenty of shade, and there are numerous hummingbirds that love the flowering plants that surround the property. The bamboo that surrounds the hot tub leads to a zen garden for quiet reflection. The house itself has everything you need, without being gaudy or overdone. It is evident that the owners took pride in the details, like the magnificent sound system that encompasses inside, outside and the billiard room, all with their own volume controls. The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood, but so convenient to grocery shopping, and an easy 10 minute ride to State Street, or the beach. Mac and Meg, you did it right!!! Thanks for sharing!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the stereo! Our favorite place in the house ourselves is sitting in the spa, listening to a little quiet jazz. Thanks for taking the time to share your experience here.

Family friendly

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time with our almost 14 year old son, 7 year old grand daughter and the big kids! Swimming in the pool, enjoying the jacuzzi and playing billiards were wonderful. A perfect set-up for the 6 of us to enjoy as a family, and still have space and privacy... Just a short jog to the beach, and a wonderful short walk to a sweeping view of the coastline. We would certainly return to this lovely getaway in paradise!

A Wonderful Santa Barbara Home. Mesa Paradise Delivers!

  • 5 of 5
Mesa Paradise is truly a one-of-a-kind destination. My family of 5 (my wife and myself, our 23 year-old daughter, 21 year-old son and 13 year-old son) had a fantastic time in this beautiful, comfortable, clean, bright and welcoming home.

The peaceful setting is truly remarkable (a true paradise) and we loved the natural flow of the home and how it opens up to a beautifully landscaped yard, pool and jacuzzi (tastefully lit at night). It was like having our own private bungalo on a 5-star resort.

The kitchen is very functional with all the latest gadgets, the music system can be piped throughout the entire house and we loved turning on the gas fireplace in the family room during the chilly evenings. We especially enjoyed sitting in the secluded jacuzzi (surrounded by beautiful plants) watching what turned out to be a lunar eclipse after grilling out by the pool. Location wise, the home is less than a 5 minute drive from the local shops and sandy beaches...we loved walking down to the beach everyday after grabbing our Starbucks coffees. I grew up in South Africa and Bermuda and my wife is from California...so the convenience of a beach within close proximity is always a mandatory for us both.

If you are looking for your own little private 5-star paradise (as a couple or family) where you can get away but conveniently enjoy what the local area has to offer, this is most definitely the place for you.

The care and attention that Mac and his family give to this unique property is very apparent. It is also worth noting that the whole booking experience was totally effortless...Mac was a pleasure to work with.

Mesa Paradise certainly delivers and we will certainly be back!

Thanks for a wonderful time in your beautiful home.

The Ferguson family

As the other reviews stated, this rental home is a five star resort! Everything here is quality from the bedding, appliances, kitchenware, and furniture down to the incredible stereo. In addition, the house is immaculate. The outside terrace is a private paradise. We enjoyed the patio with its beautiful surrounding gardens during the day, and the hot tub at night. Also, the house is situated close to one of the most beautiful beaches, Arroyo Burro Beach. The owners, Mac and Meg were very helpful, friendly, and honest. We will definitely be staying here again!
