We had a great time at Least Petit Chateau.

Great vacation. House was beautiful, the backyard and deck felt private even with neighbors. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was great. I would recommend it and would stay here again.

Awesome stay at Le Petit Chateau

My son and grandsons stayed at Le Petit Chateau with their two little dogs for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. As Grandma, I came up for one night and found a beautiful family friendly home that made our time together extra special. The house was clean, well stocked, close to a great beach, with plenty of room for all of us. Thank you for making your home available to us!

A Month in Santa Barbara
To truly get in the mind of what it’s like to be a local, you first must sojourn for at least a month in the house of a local. And so the old provincialism goes in Santa Barbara, a rare place along the beautiful California coast where one can ...escape for extended periods of time...and have it still feel like your serenity-filled vacation was sadly cut short.

Luckily for you, the City of Santa Barbara has certain short-term vacation rental restrictions in some areas. But here at InvitedHome, we refer to them as long-term vacation justifications. And what follows are a few our favorite places for protracted visits along the American Riviera. (see less)
