About Susie Bigelow

MY SISTER AND I GREW UP IN THIS HOUSE. IT IS STILL FURNISHED WITH ALL OF THE ORIGINAL ART. OUR FATHER WAS A GENERAL CONTRACTOR, SO HE REMODELED THE HOME OVER THE YEARS, ADDING A BATHROOM, A LARGER LIVING ROOM, AND THE POOL AND SPA.

HEIDI (ON THE R.) LIVES IN SB IN A CUTE HOUSE SHE JUST MOVED INTO, I AM IN LAS VEGAS WITH MY FAMILY, THEREFORE THE HOUSE IS AVAILABLE AND WAITING FOR YOU!

Susie Bigelow purchased this house in 1962

Why Susie Bigelow chose Santa Barbara

THE MESA IS A HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER AREA IN SANTA BARBARA, THE PROXIMITY TO THE BEACH, SHORELINE PARK, ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PARKS I KNOW OF, LAZY ACRES, THE BEST GOURMET SUPERMARKET IN TOWN, AND A HOST OF RESTAURANTS AND BUSINESSES ALL WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE MAKE THIS HOME A PERFECT VACATION RENTAL, OR SHORT TERM LEASE.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Susie, while I think of it, I just wanted to point out some of the things that really appeal to us about this property.



It's overall condition Is immaculate. It is very well equipped it makes us feel like you Live here and just loaned it to us for a bit.



The art work is terrific quite a variety and very well done. We love all the art books. Naturally the pool and hot tub are a big hit and the weather has certainly cooperated.

Visit with our son in Santa Barbara

  • 4 of 5

We rented this beautiful home to visit our Son who lives in Santa Barbara, the home had everything you would need for a visit, we did not cook at all but it has a grill if that's your wish. The bedrooms are very roomy, especially the Master. The backyard has a beautiful pool and hot tub, we didn't really use the pool only because it was not that hot, it is not a very long walk to the Pier as you stroll along the water, Santa Barbara is very beautiful and has so much to do, lots of very good restaurants, you can't go wrong renting this home and Heidi and Susan were very easy to communicate with. Would love to go back and use the pool, hopefully a little warmer

Terrific time

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for visiting Santa Barbara. It is private, in a quiet neighborhood, extremely well-maintained, and close to the beach and downtown. Susie and Heidi are easy to work with and extremely responsive. My husband and I loved our time in the house and would absolutely recommend the property to anyone visiting Santa Barbara.

Perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family had such a great time at this beautifully kept home. It was perfect for our family of 5 (3 small children-8,6 and 5). The kids enjoyed the park at the ocean, only a 5 minute walk, as well as the pool and Jacuzzi. The house was impressively clean and well stocked with towels, pots and pans, and anything else we needed. My husband and I enjoyed the relaxation and comfort of a home (rather than staying in a one bedroom hotel room). It was nice to see the Santa Barbara area and be able to come back to a clean, quiet and comfortable place to stay. And everything we wanted to see was so close to this home. The owners are extremely nice and respond quickly to any questions we had. We loved our time in Santa Barbara and would highly recommend this home to anyone.

Relaxing Family Trip to Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (three kids 7, 5, and 6 months) along with in-laws called this beautiful property home for five days. The property is located in a family oriented community about a 5 minute drive from downtown Santa Barbara in what’s referred to as ‘The Mesa’. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and saw many families and kids out in

the yards. The house fits in beautifully with the surrounding area, is warm and inviting even exceeding the description given.

We spent most of the days in and out of the pool mixed with trips to the various spots in Santa Barbara – State Street (downtown area), The

Pier and Skate Park, The Mission, Santa Barbara Zoo – all of which were within a 5 – 10 minute drive from this location. The pool is heated by solar and was warm enough early in the morning or later in the evening. On Tuesday night there’s a farmer’s market in downtown so we spent the afternoon shopping and brought food back to barbeque at the house.

There is a small park about two blocks away on the cliffs that overlook the beach – however there is no beach access at that location (you would need to travel about ½ mile south for access). Susie and Heidi were very accommodating and responded quickly to any questions that came up (only issue being the deposit reimbursement came a few days after the stated 14 day period).

Overall – we had an amazing and relaxing family vacation that was really made possible by this wonderful property. We would definitely

recommend this property and look forward to visiting again in the future.
