A gated community stairway provides access to a beautiful and secluded beach. The beach goes for miles and miles and you can literally spend days walking the beach from this location. More Mesa conservation land is directly adjacent to the property, with hundreds of acres of hiking and biking trails.
The property is located in the beautiful and secluded More Mesa Shores, at the north end of Santa Barbara.

What a wonderful place! Incredible views! Fantastic kitchen, perfect location for exploring the coast of California. A true gem. It was ideal for accommodating a family from all four corners of the world. New Zealand, Europe, Columbia and Brazil! The staff at Paradise Retreats was very responsive to any needs we had and can’t wait to come back!
The location and house was perfect for us. Would happily rent again.
The house is awesome we had a great time, everything was clean. The only complaint i would have is that the stairs to the beach are quite steep and there are a lot of them, but i assumed that ahead of time seeing that the house is on a cliff. We did walk along the beach to the wooden stairs going up to More Mesa which are also very steep. Great beach and location, we really loved the gazebo. We loved cooking and eating outside. Everything is very well maintained and we couldn't stop staring at the iguana in the tree, (wink wink).
