About Michael Conaway

Rosie and I fell in love with Santa Barbara after a number of visits in the 1970s. Now we have lived here for 32 years, we never get tired of being here. The weather is always great and there are so many activities from restaurants, to wine tours, to hiking and sightseeing all within a short distance. For more information contact Mike on 8054505156

Michael Conaway purchased this house in 1985

Why Michael Conaway chose The Mesa (Beach Area)

Santa Barbara has an amazing blend of activities, weather and small city feeling. The city has done an outstanding job of keeping the density down and the quality of building at the highest level.

What makes this house unique

We are within walking distance of downtown, the beach, parks, local shopping and nearby parks. We feature two new Weber BBQs - one charcoal and one propane on our expansive 640 sq ft deck overlooking the ocean with two tables, couches and lounge chairs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear potential rentor,

Welcome to our guest book. Should you end up renting our home, we would love for you to enter you comments about your time at our home after your stay. Many of the questions we receive concern the convenience of our home to the beaches, parks and various other sites and shopping around beautiful Santa Barbara. Our past guests have all felt that the ocean views and decks were well beyond what they imagined.

Gorgeous view and outdoor space!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing view of the ocean which just glowed in the sunset. The outdoor patio / deck was huge and a wonderful place to relax and admire the view, with plenty of room for everyone. The bungalow home was quite cozy and felt like a home well loved, with books and family touches throughout. The snacks and wine provided were a thoughtful gift from the hosts, which we promptly enjoyed. And the plethora of towels and linens made sure we were comfortable and able to relax. Close proximity to downtown and the beach, a quick drive away led us right to the heart of Santa Barbara. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Incredible views and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

Have to start with saying that this house offers an amazing view of the coast from an enormous patio. The patio is great for lounging, BBQing, and even relaxing in their jacuzzi. Rosie and Michael were perfect hosts, leaving my fiancé and I a delightful pre-wedding gift upon our arrival. Very prompt to respond to questions. Couldn't have had a better place to stay during our wedding.

A Rare Find

  • 5 of 5

Our family can't say enough good things about the Conaways and their beautiful house.

The view is even more breathtaking than in the photos. Because of all of the glass, the large deck is just an extension of the living area and the trees and ocean just melt into the deck, so the feeling you get when you are in most parts of the house is one of expansiveness. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with the what this house has to offer.

The Conaways went out of their way to make sure that we were comfortable and happy. My family and I hope to return to this house !

A wonderful experience for our family.

  • 5 of 5

We visited this home in June and had a wonderful stay. We loved this home and greatly enjoyed the marvelous deck and dining area. It was very clean and well cared for. The owners were very accommodating of our special circumstances and we would gladly return in the future.
