About the property

Brand New Home With 3 Bedrooms Plus Studio Perched On The Bluff Above The Beach

This beautiful new home offers all new construction with attention to detail and design and the finest amenities. It is decorated in a "beach house theme" which reflects the beach atmosphere and invites guests to enjoy the feeling of relaxation and comfort of the oceanfront setting.

The main living area has a large flat screen TV, fully equipped kitchen with large granite counter and seating for up to 8 guests, and two decks overlooking the panoramic ocean view. From the decks, guests can watch the ever-changing ocean scene, from dolphins whales and pelicans, to surfers, kayakers and stand-up paddle boarders. The backyard area is a dedicated wetland restoration area planted with California native plants.

The Master Bedroom has a king size bed and large private bath. Downstairs are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with 2 twin beds, as well as two full bathrooms. The third floor is a large private studio, with flat screen tv and sitting area with queen size futon, and a large hardwood floor area big enough for yoga practice or exercise, a full bathroom, and an outside deck with expansive views.

The sand is just a few steps away, down a sturdy set of stairs. The beach is great for exploring tide pools, swimming, kayaking and surfing. If you do not have your own board or kayak, nearby Goleta Beach has board and kayak rentals, in addition to offering pier fishing.

If you are attending a special event at UCSB or the Bacara Resort, this is the perfect place to stay. Close to the airport, UCSB, Sandpiper Golf Course, the Bacara, the new first-class ice skating rink, and more, the house is located in the residential West Village of Isla Vista. It is just a few doors away from the West Campus Bluff Trail, which is a segment of the California Coastal Trail. This segment runs from the western edge of Isla Vista to Coal Oil Point Reserve in Santa Barbara County. The West Campus Bluffs is being restored to its original natural habitat.

The beach house also has two cruiser bikes for guests use.

About Dottie Nelson

We have lived in Santa Barbara for over 50 years, and have always loved the ocean. We had an opportunity to build a house on the bluffs so we took it. It took many many years to actually realize completion of this home, but we now feel we have created something that others will enjoy as much as we do.

Dottie Nelson purchased this house in 2014

What makes this house unique

The expansive and breathtaking ocean views are the first thing you notice when entering the main level of the beach house. A feeling of peace and serenity take over as you take in the views and amazing setting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

An awesome, spacious beach home with amazing views. Beautifully decorated, with special touches throughout their home. Our host, Dottie, was very welcoming. The beach is quickly accessed, along with hiking,biking, running paths. The college town experience was fun to be apart of.

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don’t do this house justice. The views from most rooms are amazing. Lots of space and bathrooms. So relaxing to sit on the deck any time of day. Hope to be back.

Lovely place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We had such a nice time at the beachhouse. The beach was great, even though a little harder to get to then we anticipated. Waking up to that view in the morning was the amazing. It’s definitely a college neighborhood, so lots of college kids renting in the area, especially on that street.

Seattle, WA

Fantastic house with incredible view, convenient to UCSB.

  • 4 of 5

The owner went out of her way to meet us on arrival and help us feel comfortable at this great house perched on a bluff overlooking the ocean with the Channel Islands in view. The beach below was not walkable due to high tide but if you want to surf or paddle board there are steps leading down to the beach. There is a path along the bluff leading to other great views and a walkable beach about 1/2 mile away. The house is new and modern. It is in the UCSB student residential community (rental houses) so if you want isolation this is not the place. There is a 2 car garage for parking which is convenient. One of ground floor bedrooms had a water incursion (lots of rain the day we arrived) and was not usable. I was a little disappointed that the owner did not compensate us for the loss of that bedroom and bathroom but there is lots of extra sleeping space (inflatable mattresses and a futon). Some of the kitchen utensils were not clean but overall the house was well stocked with essentials if you want to eat in. We never did figure out how to get the usual cable stations on the TV (even the 3 mellennials in our group could not figure it out).

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, we experienced some water damage during a torrential storm that occurred in our area resulting in record rainfall during a 24-hour period. We have dealt with this guest directly regarding this issue. We are available 24/7 to help guests with any issues or concerns, large or small, that may arise during their stay at our property and hope that guests will contact us so that we can address them immediately.
