When you need a break from the busy, glittery rush of Los Angeles or San Francisco, you don’t need to go far. Located between these two powerhouse cultural icons is the laidback city of Santa Barbara. Rich in history, architecture, and sip-tastic wine, Santa Barbara is a place to “get away from it all” without leaving behind the beach…or the shopping…or the great nightlife! Don’t just stop by Santa Barbara for a weekend. Stay awhile in one of our gorgeous Santa Barbara vacation rentals. Learn to live the Zen life (and the Zinfandel life) like a local with a cozy condo or home rental at a great price from Travelocity.
A day in Santa Barbara is what you make it and where you decide to book your vacation rental. Grab a beachfront property, and you can spend all your 24 hours snoozing on the sand, going for a jog, or discovering whether stand-up paddleboarding is as fun and relaxing as it looks (hint: it is!). Of course, you’ll be hungry after all that effort. A luxury condo rental in the heart of the city’s downtown district will give you a buffet of some of the country’s best Mexican and Spanish cuisine. Don’t worry, your rental comes complete with a comfy bed to sleep off that food coma. Finally, if you want to decompress on this trip, choose a rental near one of at Santa Barbara’s 100-plus wineries or near the Ynez Mountains, a popular hiking destination. Nothing beats seeing these gorgeous giants from your patio. Short-term rentals like the 2BR Breezy Summerland Home by RedAwning also let you “live like a local” and really understand the personality of a city beyond its tourism veneer.
Your time in Santa Barbara all starts with an excellent short-term rental property. From this home base, you can cruise to a winery, hit the boutique stores like a bad habit, or even zip over to Los Angeles or San Francisco to see what all the buzz is about.
