The Mesa is easy to see from just about anywhere in town, it’s bluffs running from Shoreline Park up to Hope Ranch. It has its own microclimate, as those bluffs hold the coastal fog, making it more verdant than many other parts of town.
Views from the Mesa are stunning, especially from the Douglas Preserve and Hendry’s Beach. Some of our favorite restaurants are in this area, and there are many other great services, including Lazy Acres, CVS, dry cleaners and more. The schools are highly regarded in this area, including Santa Barbara City College, rated the top city college in the nation.
Most of the residences on the Mesa are single-family homes, and many have views of the ocean. It’s a short drive to downtown Santa Barbara, but much of what you need can easily be found on the Mesa.
