Recent Santa Barbara Area reviews

  • Cozy in the Hills

    "Beautiful room in a quiet neighborhood. We've stayed at a variety of places in Santa Barbara while visiting our son. This one is by far our favorite. It was perfect for our dog too. A beautiful park is right up the street. Beware! Lots of poison oak if you go onto the hills. We eat out a lot so lack of kitchen was fine. Denise and Sheridan are there when you need them but you have lots of privacy. We will put this listing on top of our list."

  • Beautiful Cottage in Montecito Lower Village

    "We stayed here for a month over the summer and loved every minute of it! Walking distance of fantastic restaurants (definitely try Cava, Sakana Sushi, and Tre Lune), shopping, groceries, and less than a half mile walk to Butterfly Beach. The house is beautifully updated with hardwood floors (other than the bedrooms which are carpeted), an update kitchen (with granite/stainless steel), and an excellent washer and dryer. The house was fully stocked with everything we could possibly need for the summer. Highly recommend and we hope to return again!"

  • Best homecoming VRBO a girl could ask for!

    "My family of 5 was difficult to find space for, especially to eat around a table together. We were so thrilled to find a rental that not only could sleep 3 kids but that had both an indoor & outdoor eating space for us. We were able to spend Christmas in my hometown and host guests while we were the guests in this immaculately appointed cottage. By day two, we were convinced this was the perfect get away place as we used the indoors, patio, beach gear and washer/dryer to enjoy an 80° day in December! My son asked if we could come back every year. To top it all off, a friend brought us a gift of marmalade made by the same woman who wrote the article on the cottages' renovation that's listed in the binder. It was a Christmas we will never forget. Thank you."

  • Perfect Birthday/Anniversary Getaway!

    "Bob was so helpful before we arrived and answered questions during out stay. The condo was absolutely perfect! When we arrived the condo was pristine. Great getaway for my family including myself, my husband, daughter (14) and son (10) who uses a wheelchair. The beds are so comfortable. The foldout couch was great for my daughter when my son was snoring too loud! The grill on the porch is fantastic! We also used the pool and the spa which were also very nice. The location couldn't be better. Such an easy walk to the beach and into town, which we did every day. We were able to borrow the beach wheelchair from the Carpinteria rental stand for FREE so we could walk with our son on the beach. And Carp is always perfect with its great shops and restaurants. This time we finally ate at Corktree Cellars and LOVED it! I would highly recommend this condo to anyone that wants a wonderful getaway. We wish we were still there!"

Santa Barbara Area Travel Tips

The Santa Barbara area of California encompasses the sunny cities of Santa Barbara, Carpinteria, Goleta, Hope Ranch, Montecito and Summerland. This portion of the state is situated in the southern half and is full of exciting attractions, natural sights to explore and delicious cuisine to dine on. This area is nearby some stunning natural beauty like the Santa Ynez, San Rafael and the Sierra Madre mountain ranges.

The cities in the area are known for unique Mission-style architecture as well as a variety of beaches where you can relax in the sand, catch a fish, try your hand at surfing or hop in the water for a refreshing swim.

Things to Do

- Los Padres National Forest: In Goleta, nature and outdoor lovers will enjoy a visit the Los Padres National Forest. As you explore through the vegetation, keep your eye out for the local wildlife like California condors, peregrine falcons, California mule deer and more. There are more 1,257 miles of trails you can use for a thrilling hike through the forest. You'll also find some beaches here, so if it's a nice day take some time to enjoy the warmth of the sun as you gaze across the water.

- Carpinteria Valley Museum of History: Step back into the city's past at the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History. An array of unique exhibits features displays on the three main cultures that have called this area home: the Chumash people, Spanish and Mexican settlers and pioneers. Admission is free, though there's a suggested donation of $2 for adults and $1 for children, so it's a budget-friendly outing. You'll see photographs, artifacts and more left my former inhabitants.

- El Fureidis: While you're in Montecito, visit El Fureidis, Little Paradise or Pleasure Gardens - depending on how it's translated. It's a 10,000 square foot historic estate built in 1906. El Fureidis was originally called the James Waldron Gillespie Estate after the original owner. It's one of only five homes designed by American architect Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue. The estate has been featured in a variety of postcards due to the beautiful Persian gardens and unique and stunning design.

- Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum: If you're a lover of all things literary, you won't want to miss out on Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum in Santa Barbara. It houses a collection of historical documents and manuscripts. The archives include works in literature, science, history, art and religion. Some of the artifacts include the original draft of the Bill of Rights, the original manuscript of "The Wedding March," Einstein's E = Mc2 formula, the "Thanksgiving Proclamation" signed by President George Washington, Webster's dictionary, Roget's Thesaurus and more than a million more rarities.

- Summerland Beach':' - Summerland Beach is a delightful strip of shore that's not usually too crowded, so you won't have to worry about fighting for a spot in the sand. Watch horseback riders mosey through the surf as you stretch out on your beach towel with a good book or dive into the sand and construct a brilliant sandcastle. This beach is popular among dog owners as well, so you can watch happy pooches playing with their owners and fetching balls out of the water.

- Rincon Beach: Rincon Beach is another excellent option in Carpinteria for spending a day in the sand and surf. It's a top spot for surfers, so you're sure to be treated to a show watching them catch the perfect wave. Relax and enjoy the warmth of the sun as you work on your tan or join the surfers in the water for a refreshing dip.

Shopping and Dining

- Camino Real Marketplace: If you're looking to shop in Goleta, head to Camino Real Marketplace where you'll find everything from large retail stores to smaller boutique shops and everything in between. It's a great spot to do a little retail therapy and pick up some exciting souvenirs to remember your trip. There are also a variety of dining opportunities here, so feel free to stop and refuel with a delicious meal. If you're looking to beat the heat, there's also a state-of-the-art theater.

- Summerland Beach Cafe: For one of the best breakfasts in the Santa Barbara area, head to Summerland Beach Cafe. There's plenty of charm and atmosphere housed in this 19th century Victorian home in addition to the delectable meals.Savor your breakfast or lunch indoors, out on the back patio with a wonderfully wooded backdrop or on the front porch as you gaze over downtown Summerland.
