Photos are very accurate of the home

We had our mom's 80th birthday family reunion at this house. We filled it to full capacity of 14. This weekend was beyond wonderful with plenty of food, love and laughter. Everyone in our group agreed that it was really somthing very special. Come Sunday no one really wanted to leave. Don't hesitate to consider this as a vacation option. Santa Barbara and Monticito are wonderful towns but you might not want to venture too far from this property!

Stunning Chateau for Families

My family of 10 stayed at Villa Chaparral for 3 nights and wished we could stay for months! We have stayed in many vacation homes over the years and this by far was the best place ever. There was something for everyone here. My parents loved the outdoor fireplace and gorgeous property, my kids LOVED the play equipment and trampoline, and we loved how well appointed everything was. The property and house were extremely well maintained. From the cleanliness of the pool, to the landscape surrounding the entire property, to the gorgeous bedrooms and bathrooms and to the fully stocked kitchen. We cannot wait to come back and will definitely recommend it to our friends.

Wonderful Stay!

Villa Chaparral is elegant, spacious and luxurious. The contacts at Invited Home make renting this house easy and user friendly. The home itself has ample bedrooms and additional common areas that make the house perfect for a large group. The pool area is especially inviting and contains a mix of lounging areas and common areas. We enjoyed the home so much we did not want to leave it to explore the Santa Barbara area. We had a wonderful stay.

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.

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)
