WOW! This is the view you've dreamed of...walking into this home you'll feel like you're on a ship! Situated on a mesa with 180 degree ocean views, spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Birds fly at your eye level while whales and dolphins play below. The entire home is newly remodeled with charming cottage style, brand new kitchen with all new appliances, pillowtop beds, hardwood floors, a fireplace and outdoor shower. You're in the heart of Santa Barbara, 5 minutes to the harbor or State Street shopping and 10 minutes to Montecito.

Oceanfront Gem

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming "coastal style" cottage on a bluff above Hendry's beach with absolutely stunning views. The photos only hint at the beauty of the setting. The location on the Mesa makes it convenient to everything Santa Barbara has to offer, but is so quiet, all you will hear is the constant breaking of the waves and the birds in the Monterey cypress on the patio. It could not be more relaxing. Gray whale sightings just offshore were a daily occurrence and countless dolphins came every morning to feed in the kelp bed at the base of the bluff. Watching the full moon light up the channel from the master bedroom was priceless.

The house is ideal for a family or small group that doesn't require too much privacy. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped. The fireplace and the fluffy blankets will come in handy as you will want to keep the windows and doors open. Laura was responsive and easy to work with, although we did not need to contact her as everything worked as advertised. One of the best vacations ever. Highly recommended.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 nights and were infatuated with the view from the living room window and back yard . Our vacation was a perfect opportunity to relax, sit back and count our blessings. Wonderful property, tasteful decorations and that ever present over powering ocean view. SB a great city and the beaches, stores and restaurants were extraordinarily great. We would like to do it again soon. One of our best vacations ever. Thank you

Simply the BEST place on the planet :)

  • 5 of 5

Laura was very pleasant and easy to work with, and the home was, well, outstanding feels like an understatement. One could not help but feel good while staying here. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and the views took my breath away. We could sit on the back lawn and watch the dolphins play, the sailboats go by, and the snorkelers in the water below. Through the telescope in the dining area, we could appreciate the terrain of the Channel Islands. There's a grocery store nearby (Lazy Acres) with great food, and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you need for cooking. We took the Mesa stairs to the beach and did the short walk to the vibrant and delicious Boat House restaurant for dinner. The house was meticulously clean and beds were all very comfortable. Would I change anything? NO! Thank you, Laura, for sharing this gorgeous and very special property with us.

This home is on the coastline, in the heart of Santa Barbara. Five minutes to downtown and State Street, the wharf/harbor area, the Santa Barbara Mission and The Santa Barbara Zoo. It is located on a bluff above the ocean, public stairs to the beach are a block away. There are several museums, wonderful restaurants, amazing shopping and wine tasting. Many golf courses, parks, and a great gourmet grocery store are all close. Spa services are also available at Baccara or The Four Seasons Biltmore in Montecito.
