This gorgeous condo is located on the Mesa in what is best known as America's Riviera, Santa Barbara and is just short of heaven with unobstructed ocean views, fully renovated and impeccably decorated throughout.
From the sweeping ocean views, to the meticulously decorated living spaces, this gorgeous Santa Barbara condo is sure not to disappoint! Completely renovated as of January 2015, this condo boasts hardwood floors in the living and dining room, lush carpet in the bedrooms and tile in the kitchen and bathrooms. Whether sitting on the living room sofa or the master bed the changing colors of sunset or sunrise on the ocean can be enjoyed without even stepping foot outdoors. With a deck stretching the length of the living room and master bedroom, a grill along with seating for soaking up the sound of the waves, or locals passing by, surfers riding the waves or even dolphins and seals swimming.

What a wonderful place to stay. All amenities were available and condo was so tastefully appointed! Could use a mirror in the small bedroom and a full length one would be nice in the hall. Very helpful instructions. Would love to return someday soon.
We recently stayed for a long weekend. The pictures online made the condo look incredible. When we drove up to the building I was a little concerned that is was going to be like it was in the photos. Boy was I wrong. The unit was beautiful and well appointed with all the details a VRBO needs. The view of the Santa Barbara coastline was like no other. Incredible!!!! I can't say enough positives. We will most definitely come back and stay over and over again!!!
The unit was well appointed , luxurious furniture , linens & towels . The kitchen was well equipped & the grill outside was convenient . No need to eat out all the time .
The view from the master bedroom & living room was part of our days & nights .
It's good to see all the beach activities INC the surfers .
The Sta Barbara harbor was about 10-15 leisurely walk from the unit .
For improvement it will be better to have screens for the living room sliding door .
Otherwise , we enjoyed our stay very much .
And would come back again .
This condo is beautiful and spacious. We stayed with my son and his fiancé and my mother in law for my nieces wedding. Very comfortable. I wasn't expecting beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas but they were included. Hope to stay here again!
We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this condo... Right across the beach and not far from State street. The condo is well appointed with pleasant and fairly new furnishings. King bed was very comfortable...The condo comfortably accommodated 6 people. We used it as our home base to explore Santa Barbara and the wine country, and will try to rent it again on our next visit to the area.
A couple of minor complaints not meant to deter anyone from renting , but simply to help management company improve.
- As noted by others, communications with property management are needlessly slow. They never pick up the phone, and most communication was done through texts which is also does not get fastest response. What will sometimes take a quick phone call to resolve may take multiple texts. I assume that they have too many proprieties to manage for the level of staffing. However their communications are professional and courteous at all times.
- I would also recommend adding a screen door to the living room sliding door. At night, we wanted to keep the sliding door open to get some cool air as it can get warm, but we had moths and bugs come in. The other sliding door in the Master has a screen.
- Shower water pressure is dismal. I assume it's because of the drought friendly shower heads they use.
Other than that great property, enjoy!
This three bedroom, two bath condo, overlooking Leadbetter Beach and near many Santa Barbara activities and restaurants, was great. We enjoyed the ocean and beach views and access to the beach and walking trails. However, our stay got off to a rough start. The code we were given to open the door did not work. Many anxious calls to Sea Cliff Vacations went to phone mail. It was a Sunday evening, but someone should have been available to help. We called the VRBO helpline, but were put on interminable hold. In desperation, we finally checked into a hotel. Later that evening I got through to VRBO after another long hold and they were able to contact Sea Cliff Vacations. We got another door code that we used to get into the condo the next day. An apologetic Sea Cliff representative followed up to make sure we got into the Condo. Sea Cliff Vacations refunded one night's stay, but did not refund the occupancy tax which I hope they will do soon. That is part of the reason I only rated this stay 3 stars.
So except for the electronic lock not working the first day, the condo worked well. Two of the bedrooms are "master size". One has a great ocean view and the other has its own very nice bathroom. The third bedroom has a trundle bed, but also houses the washer and dryer in its closet. It is serviceable for two people, but definitely not as plush as the other two bedrooms. If you like to cook, the kitchen will serve you well. It took a bit to get use to the electric cooktop, but worked well. The wireless internet was OK and there are a few weak reception spots. The Apple TV was a nice feature to the entertainment system. Beach chairs, an umbrella, and a boogie board are provided. Having two parking spaces is good, except one spot was poached by another car several times. VRBO provides some tourist information on their app and email, but it would have been helpful to have had a couple of the visitor oriented magazines that we had to find from other sources.
Hopefully future renters will not have the bad door code experience we had. If you can avoid that frustration, odds are you will have a good time here. Except for the door code problem we would recommend this condo to visitors to Santa Barbara.
