Santa Barbara w/ dogs

I am looking for a rental/ beach area that allows dogs off leash. I would like to be close to a beach and within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Am I asking for too much?

See if you can find a rental that is near Arroyo Burro State Beach, which has a leash-free dog section.

I would recommend Douglas Preserve and you can walk down to Arroyo Burro beach. It is great for off leach fun. My dog loves this area. There is a restaurant at Arroyo Burro, but no other shopping.

I like the Mesa area. Some of that area is walking distance from Arroyo Burro beach and a nearby small shopping center with market and a couple of restaurants. There is a casual cafe there that we like. Check on Google Maps.

The businesses are near the corner of Cliff Drive and Meigs Rd; the beach is about 1 mile, 20 minute walk, from there.
