Mesa Alta - City and Mountain-View Vacation Rental on Santa Barbara's Westside

City Lights and Mountain Views


When travelers think of Santa Barbara, they often conjure up images of the blue coastal waters and white sandy beaches. What is always a welcome surprise to visitors to the area are the spectacular Santa Ynez Mountains that are the majestic backdrop to this World Class coastal town.

In the Alta Mesa neighborhood on the west side of town, take the winding drive up to this large and spacious home offering expansive city and mountain views from sunrise to sunset. Mesa Alta is a unique 2-story home with seven Bedrooms, four and a half Bathrooms, and the added convenience of two fully equipped Kitchens!

With nearly 5,000 square feet on 2 acres, there is plenty of space, inside and out, for guests to find a place of their own to enjoy. Three Master Suites, view balconies, landscaped areas, shady patios, and scenic hillsides offer a myriad of places to unwind, or explore.

Color is a lively and creative element that defines this home, each room taking on a personality all its own! From the newly remodeled Kitchen with citron green walls, to a guest Bedroom that echoes the colors of the blue Mediterranean, each guest will be treated to a personal haven that is fresh and alive.

With elegant European influence, the Living and Dining Room are the most formal areas of the property. Drapes can be pulled to close off the Dining Room from the entry, and scarf valances in the Formal Living Room frame the many windows in this bright space that centers around the elegant fireplace. Plenty of windows open to a lush garden with picture like mountain and city views beyond.

The Family Room will be the heart of all activity with a pool table front and center. And a piano for the the seasoned musicians in the group to entertain guests.

Newly renovated, the main Kitchen features travertine counters, rich in earthy, copper tones that compliment the cheerful green wall colors chosen specifically to add a unique signature to this culinary hub. All new appliances, plenty of dishes, and a myriad of kitchen tools make meal preparation effortless.

All seven Bedrooms are on the second floor, 3 of which are Master Suites and all have new, high thread count linens gracing each and every bed. The cool hues of the main Master Suite play against the natural beauty of the mountain views that can be enjoyed from this room and the attached balcony. A generous walk-in closet will be great for long-term guests, and the en suite Bathroom offers both a soaking tub and walk-in shower. Sharing the Master Bedroom balcony is the second Master Suite, with a king-size bed, desk and access to another balcony overlooking the wooded side yard. An attached Bathroom adds convenience.

The 3rd Master is a pretty suite with treetop views and features colorful Pottery Barn bedding on the queen-size bed - an attached Bathroom completes this second suite. Another similarly decorated room with queen-size bed is just across the hall, with mountain and city views.

Even the littlest guests in the group will feel special with a Bedroom all their own! With a twin day bed, a fully staged dollhouse, play kitchen, and a closet full of toys and books, hours of enjoyment are in store for children, assuring traveling parents that kids are very welcome here!

The "Blue Room" features another twin day bed - mountain and twinkling city light views add the finishing touch, while the "Sunrise Room" across the hall has a queen-size bed. This room has access to an attached sundeck for your morning yoga exercises, and is a charming private space to enjoy.
