Downtown

Vacation in the heart of a historic and bustling city.

In the age of cookie-cutter mansions, give your vacation a little history lesson. Renting a downtown Santa Barbara home from InvitedHome is truly a unique experience. How? Well, first off, no two homes are the same in the heart of the city. These Spanish-style homes with their red-tile roofs tend to be on the older side. But with age comes character. Each home has their own story to tell. And that’s only one of the many draws to a downtown rental. But you can be sure there’s plenty more where that came from. Learn More
