Santa Barbara House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This is your home away from home when visiting Santa Barbara. Two-bedrooms, 1.5 baths, large covered patio for al-fresco dining, reading, movies, relaxing. Walk up four steps to the large, private, outdoor swimming pool (not heated) and BBQ grill after you've come back from exploring.

Ride the bikes (there are two at the house, but you can walk to the Wharf area and rent more) to town or to the wharf where you can shop, dine out, or just take in the beautiful views and smell the salt in the air.

Santa Barbara offers wonderful festivities all year round and is famous for it's beautiful Spanish style downtown area, restaurants, beaches, courthouse, museums, zoo, live theater, concerts, shopping and more.

Come stay in a great neighborhood, convenient to everything you need to make your visit fun and relaxing, without the expense of renting a hotel room in this upscale town.

The pool is large, private and has a large deck with patio furniture, BBQ grill and privacy.

If you don't want to walk to Shoreline Cafe (right on the beach!) or Brophy Bros (at the Wharf) for the best clam chowder, fresh oysters, or fish tacos while watching dophins swim by (and the occasional whale), the kitchen has everything you need to make snacks for a picnic at the beach, or cook your meals for an outdoor party in the lanai. There is plenty of seating in the formal dining area, eat-in kitchen or on the patio (there are two!) or pool deck.

The living room has a large fireplace and the den has a TV with cable, and WiFi connection for those with a laptop.

The two bedrooms are cozy . There is a convertible sofa in the den that sleeps one.

The main bathroom has a tub and shower. There is also a powder room convenient to the outdoor patio/pool.

Bicycles, games, books (take one home!), pool toys are all available to make your stay enjoyable.

nostalgic and perfect

  • 5 of 5

My family of four and small dog found our home away from home. Close enough to the beach to check the surf, walk to the harbor and Brophy Bros. and kayaking adventure. At first the photos seemed it was dated, but the home is very clean, nostalgic, and super comfortable. My two boys enjoyed the pool everyday while my hubby and I had a glass of wine on the big patio. I was even able to stream a workout on my computer on that patio! Cozy for a family but large enough to entertain some friends I had grown up with while there in SB. Attentive owner and neighbors. We absolutely hope to visit this home again and would recommend

Spacious and quiet, excellent owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 days starting Easter Sunday and found the house to be well appointed, large with great neighbours on a quiet street close to the beach. It helped to have bring a stroller for the toddler for longer walks. We had a great time and really enjoyed the homey feel of the house. Dana is a great owner, she responds quickly and is very friendly. There is lots of space to spread out even when the kids were sleeping. If we get back to SB, and I hope we do, we will book this spot again.

Great Santa Barbara location

  • 5 of 5

Comfy, cozy, and clean as a whistle, this spacious, charming home also boasts a well-equipped kitchen with eating area. Another huge plus is its location in an attractive residential neighborhood within easy walking distance of Santa Barbara's stunning beach and the city's vibrant downtown.

better than imagining. great house for any family, ir grouo

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time in 2 years. Mesa Beach home is on a quiet neighborhood, with grocery stores nearby, even organic and specialty stores. The Mesa Beach home is kept very clean and well maintained. The 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath with extra sleeping areas from a fold out couch and more sleeping on comfy couches. You can enjoy making dinner in the kitchen or BBQ by the large backyard swimming pool. Dine all fresco in the large, covered patio. Host a family meal or friends and play board a card games in the patio. Bikes are available for biking riding. The beach is only 3 short blocks away for family to enjoy long walks on the beach as the kids build sand castles or swim in the water. Close restaurants within walking distance with great food and service.

The Mesa Beach home is like my home away from home. So book your vacation here today!

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Close enough to beach and Shoreline park to walk there each day. Home has a very comfortable feel to it. Great indoor patio and pool area for entertaining guests. We plan on staying there again during our next trip to Santa Barbara.
