Fabulous Mediterranean 1920's Estate

Santa Barbara house

5 bedrooms / 5 bathrooms / sleeps 12

“Perfect place for our family to gather!” This property was an ideal setting for our family gathering of 4 adult children, their spouses and our 7 young grandchildren. The setting was gorgeous, the house and bedrooms were spacious enough for all of us to be comfortable. The play structure and swings was like the cherry on top of hot fudge sundae. If ever we decide to gather in Santa Barbara again, we will most definitely want to stay in this same house.

“Heart of Santa Barbara” This is our second time renting this charming home. Wendy is so helpful and quickly responded to our phone call. The house is truly in the heart of Santa Barbara... Minutes from the beach, state street and restaurants. We felt at home in this Craftmans Style house with its old wood floors, and vintage windows and doors. We will be back and highly recommend.

FAMILY POOLSIDE HOME Close to Downtown

Santa Barbara house

3 bedrooms / 3 bathrooms / sleeps 8

“Beautiful Getaway!” 3 couples recently rented "Poolside" to celebrate our 50th Birthdays...and we are so happy we did. We enjoyed the beautiful gardens, private yard, swimming in the pool, and cooking with the fresh herbs, lemons, limes, and oranges we found on the property. We are from Canada, and spent our days exploring and golfing around Santa Barbara - but we enjoyed coming "home" to cook and eat our meals in the quiet and privacy of the home. Wendy was very helpful in providing suggestions for golf, limousine service for wine tours, and any other info we wanted to know about Santa Barbara. We especially appreciated her professionalism from start to finish in the process - following through in a timely manner with e-mails and phone calls, and leaving us feeling that all is being taken care of. The home was perfect for 3 couples who wanted to be together, but still have our own "space". Thank you!

“Luxury getaway in comfortable home” We had a wonderful second stay here. It is the only holiday rental we have ever revisited, and will certainly return. It may not be the cheapest option, but still good value bearing in mind the high spec fittings, we'll kept garden and great location. Wendy has always been extremely efficient, and friendly. Santa Barbara itself is a great location, good shops and some great national parks and lakes a short drive away. Although we are just a couple, families would have loads of living space, in the huge living room. This is a true home from home and would thoroughly recommend a stay here. Jason and Ros ( U.K.)

ROMANTIC RETREAT WITH SPA Close to town on private acre

Santa Barbara house

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom / sleeps 4

“Lovely peaceful spot” This house has been newly renovated with comfortable furniture and great appliances. The street is peaceful and private. It is a great place to come back to after a day of sightseeing...there is even a hot tub to soak in and look at the stars. The only drawback to the location is that it really isn't within walking distance of the town and we had to take the car everywhere. Even if you could walk, the surrounding roads were too busy and had no sidewalks. But if you are looking for a lovely place to enjoy nature and get away from the hubbub, this is it!

About Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara lies along a stretch of the southern California coastline that some visitors call "The American Riviera". The winding coastal roads and beautiful scenic overlooks give way here to inland farms and vineyards, Spanish inspired ranches, and the kind of sagebrush countryside written about by John Steinbeck. While you're here, visit the old Spanish missions built by early settlers, some of which are now museums, explore the vistas of the Santa Ynez valley, take a sea kayaking eco-tour along the coast, and visit the Santa Barbara zoo or the botanical garden to learn more about the native plant and animal life in this area. And of course, you'll need to experience the world-class restaurants of Santa Barbara to taste the offerings of some of the richest and most diverse farmland in the country. The oldest organic farm in southern California is located here, and it's open to the public.

Here are some additional suggestions if you're looking for things to do:

  • Explore the canyons: Go hiking or bicycling through Romero Canyon in Montecito, or hike the Hot Springs Trail to a majestic Santa Barbara overlook.
  • Go shopping: Stroll along the charming and elegant Coast Village Road, considered one of the best shopping districts in Montecito.
  • Take a winery tour: A Santa Barbara winery tour is a wonderful way to experience the true beauty and rolling vineyards of the California countryside.
  • Experience live music: Enjoy live music and other entertainment in Alameda Park and Chase Palm Park. Other great places for concerts around Santa Barbara include the Cold Springs Tavern and the bars and music venues on State Street.
  • Meet the ostriches: Have a close encounter with ostriches and emus at Ostrich Land in Buellton.
  • Visit the museums: Go to the Carriage and Western Art Museum on Castillo Street to learn more about the history of transportation in California and see how this landscape has inspired artists for centuries.

Like most of southern California, Santa Barbara is beautiful all year round. Despite its popularity among travelers, it's still always easy to find a vacation rental here. Book a trendy apartment downtown or find a luxury condo close to the beach. No matter where you decide to stay, Santa Barbara is great place to relax, enjoy the sun, and create lasting vacation memories.

Amazing peaceful retreat

This is a great property that is literally steps from all the great restaurants in and around State street. You can walk almost anywhere from here, beach , restaurants, shopping and the house itself is amazing. Back yard porch and back yard was the perfect place for late afternoon drinks before going over to State and the aforementioned great restaurants. Rooms are comfortable and the beds were great. Mimi is an awesome property owner and gave us great insight into the area as well. We will be back soonsee more
Amazing Ocean View Paradise Cottage, Deck + Hot Tub, 30+ night min. contract
Perfect retreat

What a great place to relax and unwind! Whether from life in general or the daily work grind, Pacific Peace provides a break from it all. We started our days with a sunrise view of the Pacific from our cottage bedroom and from the hot tub just outside our door. We wrapped up our days listening to the waterfall in the koi pond within steps of the hot tub. Wonderfully appointed kitchen, soft fresh linens and space to spread out allowed us to enjoy lazy mornings with coffee and robes while staying connected with the modern conveniences. We were able to blend work with pleasure from this beautiful light-filled cottage. We will be back!see more

ROMANTIC RETREAT WITH SPA Close to town on private acre
Easy to see why so many guests return here again and again. It's

Private, peaceful, spotless. One of the loveliest places we've rented. Nicely designed space with open plan living room, kitchen, eating area. Large bedroom and bath. Walk-in closet (with hangers!) makes unpacking easy. Well-equipped with everything you need, incl. robes, ceiling fans, table fans, flashlight for after dark, iPod stereo dock, washer/dryer. Lovely, private patio with modern charcoal grill, wonderful hot tub, table and chairs for outside dining, lounge chairs. Convenient location in quiet residential, 10 mins to restaurants on State Street, 15 mins to Ledbetter Beach, etc. Owner is super easy to work with, online transaction handled efficiently, emails and phone calls responded to promptly, security deposit quickly returned. Would stay again in a heartbeat.see more
Beautiful Home close to the Beach and Park
A delightful experience

Our six week stay at Marty and Elyse’s lovely home was a delight. The Mesa area of Santa Barbara is our favorite because of its proximity to the beach, grocery shopping, and there is always a breeze. The house is very comfortable and extremely well stocked; everything you can imagine and might need. Marty and Elyse are the perfect hosts. They went out of their way accommodate our every need and wish as well as being the kindest couple you will ever meet. We have already planned our return next winter for an even longer stay.see more
