The Perfect Place to Stay

When you visit Santa Barbara, there are many lodging options. However, one of the most popular in recent years is the vacation rental home. In one of our beautiful properties, families and friends can gather together in a home-like setting. Unlike a hotel or motel, vacation rental properties are free from all of the distractions of hotel noise. You can choose many types of rental homes – from small cottages on the beach to large, luxurious estates with room for ten or more guests.

Discover Santa Barbara

Located 90 miles north of Los Angeles, Santa Barbara is known for its Mediterranean climate and Spanish architecture. This “American Riviera” is a premier California vacation destination for those seeking surf, sun, and relaxation.

Your Home Away From Home

For short weekend getaways to month long vacations or even longer, renting a full furnished home has many advantages. All of our properties are complete with fully equipped kitchens so that you can cook the meals you want instead of eating out every day. In addition, some properties have extra amenities such as swimming pools and hot tubs. And of course, all linens, towels, and comforts of home are provided.

Activities & Amenities

Our Santa Barbara community is one of the most desirable areas in the country to vacation. Great year round weather, beautiful beaches, local festivals and wineries draw in thousands of visitors each year.


My stay at this rental was absolutely phenomenal! From the moment I arrived, I was greeted with warmth and hospitality that truly made me feel at home. The property itself exceeded all expectations; it was impeccably clean, tastefully decorated, and equipped with all the amenities I could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The location was perfect – nestled in a serene environment with breathtaking views, yet still conveniently close to local attractions and amenities. The attention to detail and thoughtfulness of the hosts were evident in every aspect of my stay, from the plush bedding to the well-stocked kitchen. Communication was seamless, and any questions or concerns I had were promptly addressed with care and professionalism. Overall, I cannot recommend this rental highly enough. It truly exceeded all expectations and provided the perfect backdrop for a memorable and rejuvenating getaway. I will most definitely be returning in the future!

All aspects of our rental experience were positive. The rental was beautiful, totally renovated and fully equipped.

I’m in the (perhaps) unique position of working with Vacation Rentals of Santa Barbara as both a owner and a renter. VROSB listed our home earlier this year, and quickly came up with renters for our entire window of availability. They did everything efficiently and professionally. Their photo shoot of our property made everything look beautiful, and prospects responded immediately! As first time renters, we had many questions. But VROSB provided the answers and provided the turnkey solution enabling us to rent our home with confidence.

On the tenant side of things, we had the opportunity to rent a beautiful property for three weeks this summer. It had everything we needed, and was laid out so beautifully for a short (or long) term stay.

Whether you’re considering renting your own properties or staying in one of theirs, I highly, highly recommend VROSB.

Our recent stay at the Coral Cottage in Montecito, CA was an absolute delight! From the moment we stepped in, we were greeted by the warm and inviting atmosphere of this charming rental home.

The cottage was coziness, with three bedrooms were comfortable and perfectly appointed for our family of 5. One of the highlights was the well-equipped kitchen that allowed us to prepare and enjoy delicious meals together. The open layout of the living area provided ample space for relaxation and quality family time, which was just what we needed.

The cottage’s location in Montecito was also a major plus. We enjoyed exploring the local attractions, from the beaches to the nearby hiking trails. It truly offered the best of both worlds – a tranquil retreat while still being close to the area’s attractions.

In all, our stay at the Coral Cottage was a memorable experience, one that allowed us to create lasting memories with our kids and enjoy a much-needed getaway. We highly recommend this rental home to anyone looking for a charming, comfortable, and well-located retreat in Montecito. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

I regularly use Vacation Rentals of Santa Barbara, and have enjoyed extended stays at both El Jardin and Lucinda Lookout. There is a clear signature way this org runs their homes, with all essential items, wonderful service, and really stylish options around Santa Barbara, Montecito and beyond. Truly a first class organization. Highly recommended.

- Jay S. ( El Jardin Guest )

We have rented many vacation homes all over the world. Viki and the team at VROSB provided, without question, the best overall experience we have ever had. They were super responsive when we had questions. The listings were spot-on in terms of accuracy. Their recommendations for restaurants and other activities were very helpful. We highly recommend them and look forward to our next trip to Santa Barbara!

- Geoff H. ( Coastal Breeze Guest )

As a property owner, I can attest that Vacations Rentals of Santa Barbara does an excellent job managing properties.  It is very labor intensive to manage short term rentals and VROSB is meticulous about making sure the properties are perfect for our clients.  They perform TWO inspections before each new client stays, one after the last person moves out, then the maid comes in, then a second inspection is performed to ensure everything is absolutely perfect!  They are well staffed and run a very professional business.

- Eric P. ( Owner )

This management team is very responsive. They always got back to us in a short amount of time when we asked questions. The home we rented was perfect – even better than we expected in terms of supplies, condition and cleanliness.

Marsha K. ( Blue Water Vista Guest )

A beautiful apartment in an awesome location to explore Santa Barbara and surrounding areas. It is a quick walk to the beach and many cafes, restaurants and bars. The outdoor patio is a bonus. The home is even lovelier than the photos represent. The kitchen is fully stocked with high everything you would need. We would stay here again!!

James R. ( Sevilla Serenity Guest )

Samantha and her team have been nothing short of perfect. They have provided me with the best possible thing; peace of mind. For years they have not only taken care of my place, but have made improvements, while paying attention to the minor details, which is crucial to a home. My tenants are always well taken care of, and provided with immediate support. I have been living all over the world, from Russia to France to China, and I have always felt close to home through their open lines of communication and feedback. I highly recommend the whole staff, their integrity, and their service.

- Taylor R. ( Owner )

A beautiful condo near Stearn’s Wharf was spacious and comfortable for our stay. A minor issue with the heat not turning on but the property management responded quickly and worked to find a solution until they could get the issue fixed. The room sizes, closet sizes, and bathrooms were all great, very clean and love the fact that this was pet friendly and in a walkable area.

Anthony T. ( Coastal Palm Guest )

I have been working with VROSB for 10 years. Samantha and her staff are excellent to work with. My house consistently rents year after year. It is maintained beautifully thanks to the VROSB staff. As an out of state owner who doesn’t get to my house as often as I like, it’s comforting to know that when I do arrive everything is in perfect order.

- Aileen Z. ( Owner )

What a great house – spacious, well-equipped and clean. Terrific location with short walk to beach, wonderful restaurants, grocery, cute shops. Communication and instructions were clear & easy through entire process. We had an incredible time and hope to visit again soon. A+ stay!

- Katie M. ( La Mariposa Guest )

Vacation Rentals of Santa Barbara has been managing our vacation property for many years. The occupancy rates have steadily increased, reaching an all-time high last year. The staff reliably and promptly takes care of anything that may arise with guests or the property. Trustworthy and professional. I definitely recommend VROSB to others!

- Joe H. ( Owner )

Really great property- clean, excellent location, fantastic building. VROSB was also really quick to respond to any questions we had as well.

- Bradley S. ( El Jardin Pequeno guest )

Vacation Rentals of Santa Barbara has been managing our home in Santa Barbara for about a year and a half. It has been a very turn-key solution for us since we are out of the country most of the time. The recommendations Samantha has made for the home and her marketing has made it a profitable rental for us. We now wish we had starting working with VROSB long ago.
