Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in East Mesa - Elegant Villa Steps to Sand

Elegantly newly remodeled ocean view 2 bedroom in the heart of Santa Barbara

Stay with us on one of the most spectacular stretches of beach in all of Santa Barbara county. Located on the Mesa, Leadbetter Beach is fully accessible via private beach gate access, just to the right of your tumbled travertine balcony overlooking your panoramic view of the Pacific. This 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom beachfront property is the ideal setting to escape on a retreat. Exquisitely decorated with a keen eye to detail. Enjoy spectacular ocean views from nearly every room.

Master bedroom with sweeping ocean views.

Upon arrival, you’ll find nearly everything you need to enjoy your stay. A king and two twin beds so everyone in your party is treated to luxurious comfort.

Santa Barbara is a world class tourist destination. The obvious choice is to head over to the Pacific Ocean, or view it while relaxing on the couch or in bed. Enjoy dolphin and whale sightings - whales are seasonal, but dolphin sightings are almost daily!

This is the newest edition to our 9 oceanfront units that we have been offering to guests for the past 5 years.

Lovely stay

  • 4 of 5

Location is wonderful and the condo is very pretty and nicely furnished. The parking is a bit scary with a bigger vehicle. Light out above sink in second bathroom and fan very noisy, but overall wonderful weekend getaway.

A lot to pay for what we got -- not appropriate for parties larger than 5

  • 2 of 5

The apartment location is very good, near down town and steps from the beach. The apartment was clean, with the exception of a lot of bugs around. When we arrived, one of our toilets was missing its seat - and wasn't replaced until the following day. We were there only 2 days, and there were 7 of us staying there. Highly inconvenient.

Also, this place is not appropriate for more than 5 people to be staying really. There is a king, 2 twins. The sofa does not pull out into a bed. I would not recommend more than 5 to stay here comfortably.

The wifi also didn't work the first day we were there, another annoyance. We were all business owners coming in for a weekend convention and really needed access to internet.

I emailed the owner, and received a very aggressive and unapologetic response to my concerns. Although, the issues were resolved the following day, the tone of the emails really put me off.

During the night, we were woken up several times from neighbors partying outside the apartment. Although it is not an issue from the owner, anyone looking for quiet should look elsewhere as I'm guessing this is a party place.

The beds were very comfortable, and toiletries were provided (just not the actual toilet seat, heh). Sheets were clean and towels plentiful.

Overall, for paying a lot for the entire weekend, I would suggest to pass on it to anyone who asks. It was a lot of money for all the issues that we had. (I've stayed in many rentals, and this is the first negative review I've ever written!)

Beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

This property has the most beautiful view it is clean and nicely appointed. I think the only thing is the bathrooms really need to be upgraded, the showers do not work well and they do not drain properly.

Beautiful View and Convenient to Everything

  • 5 of 5

Very accurate description and visuals for the condo; it is luxurious and quite a beautiful setting. In the late afternoon, the waterfront is packed with every imaginable water sport: sailboats, kite boarders, swimmers, regattas, kayaking, etc. It was convenient to State Street, Harbor activities, Zoo, etc. via either the walking trail or the bike path. It's also a quick drive to the Mission, Botanical Gardens, and UCSB. Also convenient to Lazy Acres--a fantastic alternative to Whole Foods, and lots of restaurants, all within walking distance.

Management was very attentive to the few issues that arose; (the condo above us had an overflowing dishwasher!), and once the door lock wouldn't work, but we heard back from Becca right away. The rooms were well appointed, and the Master especially, was luxurious with a great view. The second bedroom was adequate. There is a problem with tar on the beach, and next time, I would bring something specific for tar removal, because soap and water isn't enough. The kitchen was adequate for what we needed--no complaints, although a lettuce spinner would be helpful. And there is really only parking for one car, as the "guest parking" spots are always full. The laundry facilities are "outside" in another building, and shared with others.

We will certainly be coming back.

Amazing beach condo weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beach condo is just as beautiful in person as it appears online. The ocean view is breathtaking and the beach IS just steps away. Beds were cozy and kitchen was very nice. Our ladies weekend trip was unforgettable and we would highly recommend to anyone looking to get away to relax and enjoy beautiful SB.

Beautiful condo, beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

So great, clean, well appointed with an incredible view of the beach. We listened to the waves at night, so relaxing. Emailed the owner letting them know the coffee maker was not working and that there was only one pan to cook with, someone knocked on the door within an hour with more pots and pans. Amazing. Parking is a bit confusing to find.
