  • Visiting from Montana

    "This was the perfect setting for our long weekend in Santa Barbara. Cozy, comfortable, relaxing and clean. We loved the French doors and the open windows and the beds were wonderful. Simply lovely."

  • Excellent home, seamless rental process, and great location

    "Some friends and I rented this home for a wedding. As the other reviews indicate, this is a wonderful place to stay in Santa Barbara. Clean, accurate listing, excellent owner: all of the procedural stuff is in order and works great. The home is close enough to everything, but still 4 minutes outside of the main downtown area which makes it feel tranquil. We were BLOWN AWAY by the view... it was a great surprise, as the view is probably 10x wider (literally) and 100x prettier than the photo suggests. The backyard is secluded, neighbors are quiet (keep your late night parties inside, and Frank will very kindly ask you to do so, which you should respect)........... In short, this home enhanced our trip in many ways, and we would stay there again if the opportunity arose. Thanks, Frank!"

  • Perfect SB Cottage!

    "This home was just CHARMING and perfect for our girls weekend! The home was all of the history, detail and charm you would want from Santa Barbara, with all of the modern amenities as well. There was Wi-Fi, a flat screen with a DVD player, and convenient access to anywhere we wanted to go. They even left a book full of helpful information should we need anything at all. The home was extremely clean and had all the appliances we would possibly need (coffee maker, iron, toaster, kitchen supplies, etc). I will definitely be staying again, and hope to stay longer next time! Thank you again SO MUCH for hosting us!"

Lower Riviera Travel Tips

Bring the Whole Family, and Stay in Lower Riviera Beach House Rentals

If you are planning a family vacation, and are heading to Santa Barbara, Lower Riviera beach house rentals are a much better option for most families than a stuffy hotel. Lower Riviera vacation homes give you the option to keep everyone together, while still giving the whole group some space. Many times, you will have to rent more than one room in a hotel, and this can get extremely expensive. The rooms tend to be crowded, and staying in such a cramped space can make tempers rise, even on the best of family vacations. Choosing Santa Barbara vacation rentals eases these problems. One vacation home can fit the whole family comfortably. With enough beds for everyone, and room to spread out, you'll be able to keep everyone happy!

Family Tours

While staying in your Lower Riviera beach house rentals, you may decide you want to go on a tour. There are so many types of tours in Santa Barbara, you will need to make a decision. Captain Jack's Tours and Events can offer you many types of tours, including horseback riding and kayaking. Condor Whale Watching offers a unique view of sea creatures with whale-watching tours. No matter what your family is interested in, you can find a tour to meet your needs.

History and Culture for Your Family

El Presidio is a great place to stop, while vacationing at Lower Riviera vacation homes. Both children and adults will be interested in this great archaeological dig. If you are interested in early American history, the Goleta Rail Museum can help you discover the history of the railroads. You can even ride on a miniature train! Beauty is in abundance in the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden. Take a leisurely stroll through the gardens, and enjoy the sights.
