Santa Barbara North

When it comes to wine country, closer is better.

Head toward the hills. The stunning Santa Ynez Mountains serve as sort of the de facto border between Santa Barbara’s north and south counties. While the more popular rental choices tend to have visitors gravitating toward the beaches, true oenophiles know the best place to stay for a quick and easy escape. Santa Barbara North is home to some of the area’s most expansive estates, all about a half hour drive to wine country. And we doubt there will be any whining when you choose to vacation here with InvitedHome. Learn More

Santa Barbara Travel Guide
December 10, 2016 The city calls itself the American Riviera, and if you travel to Santa Barbara you'll see why: This central coast city, which sits on an idyllic stretch of coastline and is sheltered by the foothills of the Santa Ynez mountains, has a ...Mediterranean-like climate and a civility that feels downright European. In fact, it once was European: the Spanish settled the city in the 1600s, and the Mission Santa Barbara is still one of the city's most treasured landmarks. Given the city's sophisticated charm—and high prices—many celebrities have made a Santa Barbara visit over the years, from Charlie Chaplin, who built a hotel, to Oprah Winfrey, who has a house nearby.
