  • Wonderful Property

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Santa Barbara and found the location and amenities of this house to be spot on. The pictures, description and map accurately represented the property. There were no surprises upon arrival. Highlights: -Kitchen appliances and cooking utensils are very high quality. -The Backyard is beautiful and was a wonderful place for us to spend time during the day and in the evenings when our kids were sleeping. -It is located about a mile from the busy main drag of State street. This was close enough to walk to the stores and restaurants but far enough away that the neighborhood remained quiet. -The owners were easy to communicate with and trustworthy."

    "I am a PhD candidate and was was working at UCSB for the month of February. Everything was as described on these pages, clean, well appointed and the location is impossible to beat! I took the bus to the university daily and was there in under 15 minutes from the moment I walked out my door. It's a perfect neighborhood for exploring all of parks, museums, restaurants and everything else downtown. I bought a beach cruiser for $100, the owner Bella found it for me, and I used that as my primary transportation around town. How wonderful the front garden is, like a tropical paradise. A beautiful fountain that spills in to a pool filled with turtles and fish. So many flowers and trees, even in winter! Gorgeous! Bella is an absolute delight, incredibly helpful and knowledgable about Santa Barbara, never steered me wrong, not once. I will definitely be back again and again! Thank you so much Bella!"

Downtown Santa Barbara Beach House Rentals Make For a Great Getaway

With one of the many downtown Santa Barbara vacation homes, you'll get the best of both scenes.

Stunning in the Sun

Santa Barbara vacation rentals get you right next to the best in outdoor activities like surfing, windsurfing and horseback riding! There are also almost 50 parks and nature areas available.

Stars Overhead

They're all around, too! Santa Barbara recently celebrated 100 years of filmmaking in the city. For a century, movies (and the stars in them) have been coming to Santa Barbara, going all the way back to the 'Flying A Studio'. The downtown Santa Barbara beach house rentals could be the backdrop for the next big production!

Eating and Drinking, and Making Merry Too

Night or day, it doesn't really matter because downtown Santa Barbara vacation homes are the front seat to everything that happens here, and there's plenty happening in this dining scene. Try fresh, classy seafood at Brophy Bros., right on the waterfront, or Mitchell Sjerven's Bouchon, a world-known California cuisine house. With miles of vineyards nearby, Santa Barbara is home to scores of fine wines. Visit the Wine Cask for a tasting.
