Breakaway from the ordinary in your own little oasis on the Mesa - this is the perfect spot to relax near the beach with the family.

Enjoy a soak under the stars in your private outdoor hot tub.

On a chillier coastal night, why not have a soak in your private outdoor hot tub?

The hot tub is right off the patio in the private backyard.

Fido and Rover will have a blast frolicking around the fenced in backyard.

Whipping up dinner feels like a treat, not a chore, in this gorgeous kitchen with brand new appliances. And take note, we'll be replacing the dining room table soon with a larger one.

The dining table can seat 6.

The open concept style leaves plenty of space for your family to enjoy each other's company.

The dining area opens up to the patio, should you want to eat outside instead.

Everyone can hang out together in this open-concept kitchen/living room.

The large TV over the fireplace makes the living room the perfect place to catch a game.

Why yes, that's a wood burning fireplace you see (perfect for chillier nights) - and no worries, we'll provide the wood!

Just a short jaunt to the Mesa Lane Steps to get your surf on.

You'll feel right at home in your spacious master bedroom featuring a king sized bed and en-suite bathroom.

You can even throw open the doors to the patio for an ocean breeze while you watch TV on the 32 inch flatscreen.

Step into the en-suite master bathroom (with massive walk in shower) to wash off all the sand from the day.

You'll love climbing into this queen sized bed in Guest Bedroom #2 after a long day exploring all Santa Barbara has to offer.

Even the kids get their own TV and patio access.

Clean up before dinner on the town in bathroom #2, located off the living spaces on the main level.

You truly can have it all with privacy and proximity to all the activities you love!

The garage won't have room for your car, as we've included kayaks and bodyboards for your use. The driveway has two spots for your vehicles, though.

Cool off on a hot day on your shaded back patio.

Just over 200 steps stand between you and the beach.

The coastline of Santa Barbara is a breath-taking sight.

Though you won't have this view from the home, drive up the Mesa and take in the sights.

Sometimes we all want a little privacy while on vacation. After all, you’ll already be with the ones you love and most care about. But that certainly doesn’t mean you need to be far from the action. And you can have the best of both worlds when you stay at Beach Breakaway in Santa Barbara.

Exposed, wooden beams and whistling, white paint (not to mention a warming fireplace), adorn the main living space of this spanking new 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom, recently renovated home. And while you may not be able to see the beach from your private area, take solace that you are close by the Mesa steps to the beach - 240 steps stand between you and the ocean. Plus, you’ll have plenty to look at as each room (yes, each) has its own 32” flat screen television. So unfortunately, fighting and giggling over the remote control will be put on hold during this vacation. You’ll have your own.

But worry not, there’s plenty more exciting things to do while here. Like firing up the modern appliances and having a BBQ in- or outdoors. And while you are close to the beach, this place also has the luxury of being in close proximity to the hopping downtown area. There are also a couple of body boards packed in the garage as part of your many options. And the only thing not optional is that you, your family and friends have a great time at Beach Breakaway in Santa Barbara. So get inviting and start packing. This getaway can’t wait.

Wonderful home right near the beach!

This charming 3 bedroom home is in a great area of Santa Barbara. The beach is really close - just down the street and down some steps. Despite being in a residential area, the fenced in yard is really private, and the speaker system runs out to the patio for enjoying music while using the hot tub. The fully outfitted kitchen was great for preparing meals when we weren't exploring Santa Barbara's culinary scene. The master bedroom sheets are the most comfortable I've ever slept on. Can't wait to stay at this home again!

Perfect home to relax and unwind

I stayed at the Beach Breakaway with a group of ladies when we did the AVON39 Walk to End Breast Cancer. The house was a perfect place to rest and recover after walking 39 miles. The house was immaculate and well stocked with all kitchen and bath necessities. The beds were amazingly comfortable and the bathrooms were beautiful. The jacuzzi was a fabulous place to end the day. The location is great because it's close to the beach and still close to a shopping center for anything personal needs. We look forward to staying there again next year for the Walk.

What You Should Know

What We love

  • Relaxing in the outdoor hot tub or on the spacious patio.
  • Bringing the whole family with you - pups included (just double check them with us first)!
  • Walking just a short way to the Mesa Steps beach access point. There's a little over 200 steps down to the ocean.

What to know

  • The washer and dryer are accessible through the carpeted garage, but there are two driveway parking spots and plenty of additional street parking.
  • Like most of California, Santa Barbara is experiencing a severe drought. The backyard features artificial turf, which not only looks beautiful, but is gentle on mother earth.
  • Like most homes in Santa Barbara, it doesn't have A/C.

What to expect after booking

  • You'll receive a confirmation email shortly after booking.
  • If you've booked more than 60 days prior to your arrival date, we'll send you an email requesting your final payment as that date gets closer.

  • Your initial payment is 50% of the total, with the remaining balance due 60 days out from checkin. After the 24 hour grace period, all payments become non-refundable.

  • We encourage you to double check everything before you book to make sure you've selected that perfect home, at the ideal time. And while we're on the subject of peace of mind, ask us about our travel insurance package. It's just another amenity we offer to make booking your stay as relaxing as possible.

A Month in Santa Barbara
To truly get in the mind of what it’s like to be a local, you first must sojourn for at least a month in the house of a local. And so the old provincialism goes in Santa Barbara, a rare place along the beautiful California coast where one can ...escape for extended periods of time...and have it still feel like your serenity-filled vacation was sadly cut short.

Luckily for you, the City of Santa Barbara has certain short-term vacation rental restrictions in some areas. But here at InvitedHome, we refer to them as long-term vacation justifications. And what follows are a few our favorite places for protracted visits along the American Riviera. (see less)
