Welcome to classic Spanish-style living, done Santa Barbara style.

Out on the master balcony and just beyond your Mission-style roof, the Pacific is calling your name

We're sure you'll enjoy more than one open-aired meal out on the patio.

Just 700 feet from the home, the Mesa beach steps await.

Enjoy the exposed beams, vibrant furniture and cozy gas fireplace as you watch some TV.

And when you want a little fresh air, head out to the patio that's just off the living room.

High-end appliances are scattered across the kitchen, as are the ornate tiles that are clearly a work of art.

Not to be outshined, the woodwork of the cabinets and doors gives the kitchen an added charm.

The open concept living space allows that ocean air to roam comfortably as it pleases.

There's a half bath on the main level for convenience.

The master bedroom with a king is exceptionally bright, and spreads across the entire second floor.

The master boasts an en-suite bathroom and access to a private balcony.

Yes, that's the sea you see as you relax, shaded from the sun.

Marvel at the master bath's brilliant tilework as you prepare for the day.

The dual sink vanity will make you smile as bright as the bathroom.

Guest bedroom 2 sits on the main level, with a king bed and rustic armoire.

This guest bedroom also has an en suite bathroom, and private access to the patio.

The en-suite bathroom here a single shower, and of course, even more stylistic tile.

The cooling ceiling fan ensures that you have the optimal temperature for a good night's sleep.

The third guest bedroom is also on the main level, with a queen bed and en-suite bath.

There's a little reading nook should you need to escape your guests for some solitude.

More brilliant tile surrounds you in bedroom's en suite bathroom.

Comfy seating for 5 awaits you outside on the patio and veranda.

Grill up a delicious meal out back on the brand new BBQ grill.

There's also a separate lounge area for when you feel maybe a little too secluded.

And the Mesa Beach steps are always just a few steps away.

Just about 700 feet from the Mesa Steps that dramatically descend to the majestic sea, lies a little stateside taste of the Spanish countryside. It’s name is Casa de Lujo. And when you feel the cool ocean breeze gently blow your hair as you lounge outside in the yard, you’ll quickly know why. Because at this 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath vista, taking it easy comes just a little bit easier. Siestas are always encouraged.

The first thing you’ll notice is the Spanish-inspired motif that will wow you, top to bottom. From the semi-cylindrical, Mission-style roof to the ornate ceramic tiling that runs throughout, your siesta will quickly turn into a fiesta as you explore the space. Begin outdoors, and enjoy drinks and festive conversation on your veranda. Feel the fine gravel caress your feet as you make your way out to your little yard to get some sun. Or take just a short stroll and do so from the beautiful beach, to assure yourself just where you really are.

When you’re not enjoying the great outdoors, this villa is, of course, very inviting on the inside as well. Gather the family around the fireplace and watch the latest flick on the flatscreen TV. Prepare a delicious meal in your spacious (and gorgeous) kitchen. Enjoy a few laughs as you dine at the table that comfortably can seat six. Then retire for the day in your respective rooms to get that refreshing night’s sleep. The master bedroom encompasses the entire second floor, and all bedrooms come equipped with either a king or a queen and their very own en-suite bathrooms. But everyone will want to head to the balcony off the master to marvel at the view of the Pacific, to remind you that it’s never far away. But when you stay at Casa de Lujo, far away is just what you will feel...

Beautiful! Easy beach access; colorful decor!

The home was decorated so colorfully with Southwest/Mexican decor, and was right at the beach in a great, private neighborhood. I felt like I was right at home during my stay, and the outdoor front patio and backyard BBQ area are great for gathering!

We don't want to leave this beautiful place!

We can't say enough about how pleased we are with our choice to stay at Casa de Lujo in Santa Barbara. What a perfectly designed Spanish style home with a true "Santa Barbara feel". This home was definitely well-thought out and full of everything we needed to relax and enjoy the luxury. Thank you to the owners for making us feel so pampered---it was all in the details---from the high quality furnishings to the "Pampered Chef" utensils---it was all noticed and appreciated. Cannot wait to return to Casa de Lujo.....

Love This Santa Barbara Vacation Home - Beautiful, Peaceful, Comfortable, and Perfectly Located!

Casa de Lujo was perfect for our Santa Barbara vacation. Well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, steps from a beautiful beach, and near great restaurants, spas, and shopping. Everything was very clean and there were comfortable places to gather inside and out. We went hiking, saw a movie downtown, toured UCSB and Westmont College, went to the beach, visited the local wharf, ate at some great restaurants (Zaytoon and Brophy Bros), had smoothies and massages, and went to the local aquarium. We often stay in vacation rentals when we travel and Casa de Lujo was the best. On another visit to Santa Barbara, we paid more for hotel rooms and did not get all of the amenities and space that this home offers. Highly recommend this home. We will be back!
