Colorful Style on the Mesa
Casa Tamarindo is an eclectic blend of the mystique, colorful hues, oriental rugs, and rich imported fabrics of faraway lands. Having been remodeled in 2013, this restful retreat sits above the street in a Mesa neighborhood, overlooking the panoramic views of the coastline and islands. The design elements focus on comfort with a sense of the exotic. Vibrant paintings of local scenes were created during winter months spent at this sanctuary, adding vivid local flavor to the ambiance of the property.
As you enter the home, step up to the Formal Living Room with ocean views and flat screen TV. This room welcomes quiet conversation, or a cozy spot to just relax and disconnect. Splashes of color in the rug and pillows create a colorful yet comfortable space.
The Family Room offers a large sectional sofa. Fun colorful floor cushions and a citron leather chair make a bold statement and add to this welcoming room for all ages. French doors open to an intimate Patio just outside, with two armchairs and ottomans. A lipstick red umbrella suspended over the spa offers shade for daylight soaks, and stepping stones lead back up the terraced yard to the Master Suite. This provides convenient access for upstairs guests.
The Kitchen and Dining Room share a common space filled with light from the sunny coastal landscape. Corner windows with ocean and patio views flank the distressed tropical wood dining table that seats 6. Behind closed doors there is an adjacent Laundry Room and Pantry.
Upstairs, the Master Suite offers a queen-size bed and corner windows facing the ocean. There is a leather reading chair, making this room a private oasis in which to retreat. Bring your iPad, laptop, or a good book and retreat to quiet and comfort. The Master Bathroom with dual sinks and shower/ tub combination also offers French doors that conveniently lead to the side yard and spa below.
All Guest Bedrooms feature queen size beds. The south-facing Guest Bedroom offers ocean views and colorful appointments. The third Guest Bedroom on the north side is slightly more spacious and faces the hillside behind the house, making this a very private escape. The Hall Bathroom is shared by both Guest rooms, and offers a tub with shower, a sink and vanity.
On the main floor there is a whimsical Powder Room, and a two-car attached garage is on the lower level.
As with all Mesa locations, access to just about anything is simple and close-by. Downtown Santa Barbara is just a 5 minute drive, or you may walk to local ethnic eateries, family favorite restaurants, or bustling coffee shops. Save time to explore one of Santa Barbara's finest gourmet markets, Lazy Acres, which is just down the street. Mesa Park is also within walking distance but if you are ready for a bit more of a stroll or bike ride, venture out to the nearby Douglas Family Preserve for a breathtaking view on the bluffs above the waves of the Pacific. Shoreline Park and coastal beaches are a little further for great exercise!
