Overview

Santa Barbara House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This cozy and welcoming cottage is located in the famous Mesa area of Santa Barbara known for its location close to the ocean, and unique 'village' atmosphere where you can find all the services required for a comfortable vacation home. That includes an upscale market, restaurants, shopping!

If you enjoy walking beside the ocean, watching whales migrate, and all the activities that go with a coastal vacation this is the location for you. Located on a quiet, tree-lined street you get the feeling of home-away-from-home!

This is a water conservation property and we appreciate your help in conserving water through shorter showers, washing only full loads in both the dishwasher and the washing machine.

Gets better each time!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second winter that we've spent at this house. When we were here in 2014 we were amazed that the house was so perfectly maintained. Arriving this year, 2015, we found so many improvements (even though few were needed). There were new ceiling fans, outdoor furniture, and a new water system. The home is maintained as though the owners were living in it. I would expect that we will be here each winter for as long as the wonderful owner (and manager) will have us! It really has become our second home.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in this house with our small dog so often I've lost count. It is very clean and well-appointed, beautifully landscaped, and a perfect location near Shoreline Park. Beds are very comfortable. In fact, when we bought a new mattress for our home, we checked the brand and bought the same one. The manager, Jill, is very easy to deal with and very responsive, although the only issues we've had have been minor and even those have been few. Although we live on the East Coast and are only there for a week or two at a time, our dog recognizes the house and gets excited when we arrive. He loves the yard, as do we. Every time we arrive it feels like coming home.

Quiet luxury, minutes from the ocean and park, that exceeded all of our expectations

  • 5 of 5

This charming and luxurious house exceeded all of our expectations. We normally rent through a local agency, but this house looked very appealing on VRBO. It turns out that an amazing agent manages it. Our first contact was with the agent, last year on a visit to Santa Barbara. While we were not able to see the inside of the house (it was rented), all of our questions were answered. The process of both arranging the rental and checking in were as effortless as can be.

We are a retired couple coming from our own custom designed house, and were still somewhat concerned in that we had booked the house for 8 weeks without seeing the inside. But upon our arrival in January, 2014, we were just delighted.

The house is located on a very quiet street, yet only a block to the ocean. We have stayed in a few neighborhoods in Santa Barbara, and this was by far the nicest - minutes to a great park and the beach, and walking distance to fantastic restaurants and retail. There is very little traffic on the street, and it is one of the prettiest neighborhoods in The Mesa.

The house is perfectly laid out. There are two guest bedrooms at the “back” of the house, and they share a very nice and fully updated bathroom. We used one of the bedrooms as an office, as it had a very nice table that served as a desk. The deck and backyard are right off the master bedroom, which has its own en-suite, and the lovely fragrance from the garden comes right into the bedroom. All the linens, kitchen appliances and dishes are first class. I work from home, and the internet connection was not only reliable, but very fast. The high-definition television in the living room is superb.

We have a mature Border Collie, and the fully fenced and sunny backyard was wonderful for him. Douglas Preserve, probably the best dog-friendly park in the United States, is a five-minute drive away.

During our stay we had a few questions and requests, and the property manager always was available to us or got back to us in minutes.

All in all, we were so happy with this house that we have already booked it again for two months in 2015, and hope to keep returning every winter. We have rented many places all over North America, from Key West to Maui, and this house was certainly as nice as any other place we’ve rented.

Owner's Response: We have had the privilege of having the nicest people stay at our home. Working with Jill is a delight for everyone involved. Always happy to see return customers. That says a great deal ! Thanks to all.

Exceeded every expectation

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful immaculately clean house that has been expertly brought up to modern luxury standards without sacrificing the charm and historic feel of Santa Barbara beach cottages. Both the front and rear yards are spacious and inviting, with comfortable seating on the deck and porch. The property is bathed in sunlight through most of the day, allowing plenty of opportunity to relax and read outside.

The down filled sofa and super sized recliners in the living room provided a great place to watch football, and the top quality kitchen appliances made eating in a pleasure. When we did eat out, our favorite local restaurant was the Szechuan restaurant less than a mile away on Cliff Drive.

Fairy tale sunsets and sunrises are best viewed just a few blocks away at Shoreline Park. Pods of dolphins, harbor seals and pelicans are also frequently viewed from the park, as well as a steady stream of incredibly friendly people out walking their dogs. We really hope that we will have the opportunity to stay here again some day.

Thank you for sharing your lovely home. Coming from the south, we enjoyed the cool night air and sleeping with open windows. Great location for fiesta week. We happened upon the SB Surf Adventure Camp on the beach and enrolled my granddaughter, age 6, for 2 days. She loved it so much she and her mother stayed in SB extra days, staying with my other daughter, who also lives on the Mesa. We came out for a surprise birthday party for my SB daughter. Wonderful accomodations and great home to return to after sightseeing. Enjoyed wine tasting in Santa Ynez..I brought a friend and she and her husband will be planning a trip to SB. Again, wonderful house and yard. Kudos to JM. She's pleasant to work with. Easy system for the renting process. Again thank you.

Our stay in your lovely home was a great pleasure for us. The home has everything you need, the neighborhood was quiet and was close to Santa Barbara's finest. We will definitely check to rent again when we return to SB. The rent process was painless-thanks JM!
