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. Numerous golf courses, wine tasting in the infamous San Ynez Valley and world renowned restaurants are all close. Walk to neighborhood parks. The Santa Barbara Zoo, Stearns Wharf, Oceanfront Skateboard Park are just a few of the numerous activities available for the kids. Back at the house, you'll enjoy the BBQ outside and lounging on the brick deck or the chaises on the grassy area. Perhaps best of all is being lulled to sleep to the sound of crashing waves
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 Arizona family had the most wonderful time. Pictures do not do the property justice. It is beautiful in every way --- quiet, well maintained, updated.....Laura, you have obviously put a lot of thought, time and money in your wonderful home. We will be back!
We just returned from an absolutely amazing stay! This house is simply amazing! From the moment you walk in the door and take in the incredible view you begin to relax and unwind. This house is so well equipped with everything you could possibly need for your trip. From towels to beach chairs. It's all there. We found the view so mesmerizing that we didn't want to leave the property. Even the check out instructions were simple and easy. I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Santa Barbara. It is well worth every penny.
We had the pleasure of staying here last week for our 10 year wedding anniversary. No kids, and no work, a couple of Okies staring at the Ocean all day. Just what we needed. Didn't read all the reviews but in case it wasn't mentioned the walk down the steps and to the Boathouse Restuarant was ideal. We did it four times! Thanks for having us!
The best thing about this place is the view. We were entertained by wales and dolphins swimming by, the sound of crashing waves and just the beautiful view so close up. The location was also great for us... A short drive to the beach where we took a walk and had lunch at the restaurant there, quick drive to shopping on State Street and the Pier and shopping for necessities just down the main street.
I was expecting 2 sitting areas based on the pictures (my fault). It appeared from the angle and the different slipcover that were separate. The sofa bed in the sectional was very uncomfortable. It would have been nice to have a tv in the living area so we could watch as a group rather than in the bedrooms.
Overall, we were very satisfied. The kitchen was spacious, the decor cute. The outside patio area was a great place to talk and read and just check out the view.
I spent a blissful week here by myself and have already booked my return trip for next year. As you enter the cottage you feel like you're falling into the ocean. Blue, blue, blue as far as the eye can see. The furniture/bed is comfortable, the lighting is excellent, the kitchen is well stocked, the outdoor patio is divine, the outdoor shower was fabulous. In short the entire experience was excellent.
Best of all there is enough of everything - towels, linens, dishcloths in kitchen, pots & pans, dishes, etc.,
The owners have lovingly prepared a real sanctuary for their guests.
I confess that i did not walk down the 250 plus steps to the shore, but I did drive a mile to the easy free beach parking at Hendry's Beach. Mostly though I enjoyed sitting on the bluffs in one of the giant chairs, reading, stargazing, watching the moonlight on the water, hearing the surf all day and night. I could go on and on...
Laura, the owner, is easy to work with and very responsive. Thanks for everything!
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.
