Treat yourself to a Mediterranean-style vacation along what many call the American Riviera. When you stay in InvitedHome’s Santa Barbara rentals, you’ll experience all the charm of southern Spain without ever leaving the states. You’ll not only be transported to another time and place, but also to an experience that’s out of this world. Yes, a Santa Barbara beach house provides you with the rustic architecture and exotic cuisine of an entirely different country – less 100 miles from downtown L.A. And while it has all the pros of SoCal, you’ll quickly discover it leaves the cons behind.
WHERE TO STAY IN SANTA BARBARA
Santa Barbara has the ideal rental home for every personality. And InvitedHome’s Santa Barbara rentals are spread across virtually every Santa Barbara neighborhood. From the quirky downtown artistry of the Funk Zone to the laidback vibe of Carpinteria - and everything in between - our Santa Barbara vacation rentals are sure to have your interests during your stay well covered.
If it’s a taste of luxury you seek, look to Montecito. Perhaps the area’s most exclusive neighborhood, this where vacationers go to rub elbows with the stars. And the stars go to escape Hollywood and be left alone. Enjoy high-end shopping, a trip to the botanical gardens, or relax with a cocktail at the world-famous Biltmore at sunset. Your vacation home is probably close to it all.
Get away from it all. Located about a 10-minute drive from downtown Santa Barbara, our Carpinteria homes sit in the lap of luxury. You may come for the famous surf, polo matches or pristine beaches, but you’ll stay for the tranquil peace and quiet.
For those who want to stay in the heart of the city, downtown Santa Barbara rentals are where it’s at. You’ll be right in the center of all that’s happening and never miss a beat. Cruise down to State Street for cocktails, or head to Stearns Wharf for picturesque ocean views and waterfront dining options.
When it comes to Santa Barbara, it doesn’t get much trendier than this. The Funk Zone has it all. You’ll be just a short walk to all the hip restaurants, urban wineries, downtown shopping, and hidden hot spots. So dress accordingly. And with all hustle and bustle around you, it may be hard to believe the waterfront is only minutes away.
If you’re looking for pristine ocean sightlines, the neighborhood of Mesa might be for you. A stay at one InvitedHome’s many Santa Barbara rentals here means you’ll be not only high atop the hills, but also high on life. From Spanish-style villas to French-inspired chateaus, Mesa vacation rentals offer plenty of rooms with a view.
Those looking for a quieter vacation head to Mission Canyon. These homes tend to be more private and remote. Just outside of town nestled in amongst the trees and endless lush green, the homes are for nature lovers of all kind.
Plenty of Spanish-style architecture and pools with panoramic views await you when you peruse these Riviera rentals. This neighborhood gives you a stateside taste of the Mediterranean coastal towns, without ever leaving the country. Experience it yourself.
Some of Santa Barbara’s most expansive estates sit just to the north. And if you are a true oenophile, you’ll want to head here. En route to Santa Barbara’s wine country, this is where you stay to be close to all the delicious wine tasting action.
Located near the Old Mission and just a few minutes walk to downtown, staying in the Upper East Side of Santa Barbara is truly a treat. Be sure to check the listings for the Santa Barbara Bowl and plan a stroll in the rose garden of Mission Historical Park.
You can get a true taste of life at sea in West Beach. A great place to grab a seat and watch the ships go by or just enjoy the panoramic views of the mountains from your patio. And when you’re done passing time, enjoy some waterfront dining that’s only a few blocks away.
