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...

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!

Complete Guide to Santa Barbara
Sunsets on the beach. Eclectic cuisine on the streets. Salty freshness in the air…and a community with a definitive flair. Santa Barbara is coastal California’s hidden gem, as offbeat as it is off the beaten path. It’s no wonder ...this is such a popular place to escape. Because every single spot of it is uniquely wonderful. (see less)

Santa Barbara Polo Club
Santa Barbara, California, is well-known for its sunny and mild Mediterranean-like climate, chic dining, shopping districts and gorgeous coastline and mountains. But what many tourists may not know is that deep in the heart of the city’s posh ...culture lies a love for the ancient sport of polo. Steeped in history, the “game of kings” is the highlight of summer and fall at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club, which hosts matches on weekends from May through early October. Spectators of all ages delight in watching rival teams on deft ponies tear up and down a grass field that’s the area of nine American football fields. (see less)

Whale Watching Santa Barbara
If you always wanted to go on a whale-watching tour, there’s no better place to do it than Santa Barbara. Santa Barbara whale-watching season is pretty much anytime of year. But there is one caveat. You must decide what species of whale you ...want to see most. Not all migrations take place at the same time. So if you’ll forgive the pun, let’s dive a little deeper. (see less)

The Restaurant Guy's Santa Barbara Recommendations
November 10, 2016 The A-team at Good Bar has put their best fall foot forward, offering half a dozen sippers for everyone. Sweet Corn is the winning ingredient in PILGRIMAGE SOUTH, a blend of Herradura Reposado, sweet corn, creme de cacao, fresh lime, chocolate ...bitters and egg white. The result is a colorful and velvety rich drink worth coming in for. The funky and fresh EJECTION SEAT consists of High West double rye, Damoiseau 110 Rhum, Amaro Lucano, green tea pineapple gomme, fresh lime, cinnamon syrup, and tiki bitters, while the GUN FOR HIRE awakens your palate with black cardamom infused Bombay Sapphire, Creme de Noyeaux, cardamaro aromatized wine, sasparilla and angostura bitters.

Santa Barbara Travel Guide
December 11, 2016 The city calls itself the American Riviera, and if you travel to Santa Barbara you'll see why: This central coast city, which sits on an idyllic stretch of coastline and is sheltered by the foothills of the Santa Ynez mountains, has a ...Mediterranean-like climate and a civility that feels downright European. In fact, it once was European: the Spanish settled the city in the 1600s, and the Mission Santa Barbara is still one of the city's most treasured landmarks. Given the city's sophisticated charm—and high prices—many celebrities have made a Santa Barbara visit over the years, from Charlie Chaplin, who built a hotel, to Oprah Winfrey, who has a house nearby.

Comment There are a lot of travel guides, but this one is very down-to-earth; it mentions peak tourism times for Santa Barbara, along with recommending some great not-to-miss ...destinations. (see less)
