About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 10)

Arroyo Burro Beach House - Located across the Street from Arroyo Burro Beach on Cliff Dr. Oceanfront in Santa Barbara!

Imagine walking from the front door and being on a wide sandy beach where dolphins play, and sunsets are spectacular, all less than a minute walk away. Enter a popular family restaurant and bar set on the beach, or visit the lagoon of Arroyo Burro Creek for birding where night herons guard the beach on moonlit sand. Fly-fishing in the surf, or just plain surfing, Hendry’s Beach (as the locals know it) is prime for both!

The house sits on just over 1 acre with a front lawn that seems the size of a football field! It’s perfect for all sorts of games from bocchi ball to volleyball. The front lawn is also perfectly situated for use as an event setting. Palm trees around the house provide a tropical environment for the ultimate vacation stay.

Great beach home

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect location for a beach house. The jacuzzi in the backyard really makes the home a gem. If you are able to book this home, please do so as you will NOT regret it.

The front yard is perfect if you have young kids like mine. We were able to see the Santa Barbara mission and the pier as well. A great trip.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here for a week in October with 9 girlfriends for my 40th bday. This was such a great house and we all fit so comfortably. There was one little issue and Ed came over and took care of it right away. The location is great and the boathouse right across the street is so good. We were able to walk across to the ocean every night & watch a sunset that took your breath away every time. Thank you so much Ed for sharing your home with us and making my birthday week so special.

Great Location, Great times.

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a great time in Santa Barbara, the house was great & the owners are wondereful as well. The true selling point for this house is it's location, you really cant beat it. The beach is right there, and the restaraunt was awesome. Its a great place to have your evening drinks and not have to drive anywhere. The place is easily accessible to everything, There is a grocery store and several shops just down the street, and its just minutes to State Street.

We really enjoyed the large front yard, we had a nice BBQ out there and people were able to come back and forth from the beach for food and whatnot. The house itself was great, although we didnt spend much time inside. It was very clean, the furniture was nice, the beds were comfortable, and there was a huge TV. The Jacuzzi was also great, and it is enclosed so you can enjoy it at night if your group is somewhat loud, as long as you close the doors of course.

All in all, I would definitely recommend this house to any group who is looking to stay on the beach. If you arent into cooking the restaraunt is really convenient (the house has everything you need to make a huge meal if you want). We didnt have kids in our group, but if you do, they will definitely enjoy the huge yard.

Great spot for enjoying the beach

  • 5 of 5

You got enough other guests and children to fill four bedrooms. who want the very best access in the world (including parking for all) to one of its truly beautiful beaches and which also has an excellent restaurant this is the place. Also the large lawn is great for children and adults to play some games or just to sit around the table and relax and talk. There is little shade for the lawn lounging, so bring a foldup umbrella, There is a large enclosed hot tub in the rear yard. It also has a 55 inch tv in the living room. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to others.
