  • terrific location!!!

    "Our family had a lovely mini vacay and stayed in the back cottage for 4 nights. The location is TERRIFIC and within walking or biking distance to pretty much everything. The house is well appointed, comfortable and easy to navigate. All of us enjoyed being there. Our two dogs were happy. They ran in the surf every day, lounged in the yard, played fetch in the park, and took many long walks with us. Our 5 year old twins also had a blast. Among other things, both learned to boogie board and ride bikes while we were there. They fed Michael the giraffe at the Zoo and ate like crazy at The Palace and Los Agaves. They built sand castles and flew kites. My daughter even found an 1891 Indian Head penny on the beach! Quite the adventure for our two little kids! This was a fun little getaway that we will continue to do every year. David, thank you for your hospitality and making this such an easy transaction. Cheers!"

  • Perfect location

    "Just returned from a week in Carpenteria. The condo is beautiful, exactly as pictured. Location is great - steps from the beach, views of the ocean, mountains and salt marsh. The condo had everything we needed to enjoy the week. Oh, and the heated pool and spa were also a delight."

  • Peaceful Paradise

    "Rancho Verde is a wonderful tranquil setting enveloped by lush greenery, tall trees, lovely flowers, a grand view of the mountains and immaculately kept with all a visitor would need on the inside. Equally appealing are the courteous, thoughtful and kind treatment that you receive from the hosts, George and DeEtt. They will surely be greeted in the next life by trumpets and a marching band. My wife and I stayed at Rancho Verde for 32 days to escape the Arizona heat and were "big time" delighted with our choice. The peaceful setting was perfect at the conclusion of strolling beaches, hiking trails, visiting restaurants, attending festivals, watching live theatre and enjoying the vast options that Santa Barbara and neighboring towns offer. George and DeEtt were always willing to share their knowledge of the area, points of interest, activities to consider and general helpful suggestions. They allowed us to pick peaches, tangerines, oranges, lemons, and apples from their orchard -- a real treat. Gazing at the mountains, trees and flowers from the deck was splendid either starting the day with a cup of coffee or ending it with a barbecue. We highly recommend Rancho Verde to anyone and hope to return again someday."

Santa Barbara Area Travel Tips

Santa Barbara Beach House Rentals: Home Away From Home

Vacationers love to experience the comfort and amenities of a home away from home when traveling. To have the best of both worlds stay at Santa Barbara vacation homes where the comfortable amenities are plentiful and the vacation activities abound. Multiple bedrooms offer privacy and space, while full sized bathrooms provide convenience for everyone. The year round clear skies and sunshine in Santa Barbara make beachside days seem like a dream come true. From sand and surf to great food and adventure, a trip to California will be a vacation to remember.

Sun, Surf and Ostriches?!?

With a nearly endless list of exciting activities to choose from, travelers staying at Santa Barbara beach house rentals have easy access to a wide variety of adventures. A day trip out and about can include touring local wineries, shell seeking on the beach, or checking out ostriches. Yes, ostriches. Ostrichland USA is a preserve that is home to about 50 ostriches and emus that families can visit. Kids and animals are always a good combination. While there, eggs can be purchased to take back to Santa Barbara vacation homes and cook in the fully equipped kitchen. One ostrich egg is equal to 18 to 24 chicken eggs, which is breakfast for a crowd!

Food and Fun

Restaurants such as La Super Rica offer dining experiences that will not be soon forgotten. La Super Rica is a taqueria not far from Santa Barbara beach house rentals where good Mexican food is served and has been appreciated by none other than chef Julia Child in times past. Venturing out from Santa Barbara vacation rentals can lead travelers to discover the Thousand Steps Beach at the end of Santa Cruz Boulevard. What seems like a thousand steps lead down a secluded, unspoiled beach area great for walking by the sea.
