The Best Airbnbs and VRBO’s to Rent in Santa Barbara for Groups
Santa Barbara is the quintessential California vacation spot on the coast of the iconic Highway One. With the stunning coastline paired with the amazing backdrop of the Santa Ynez mountains, a Mediterranean-style downtown, and a fabulous food & wine scene, Santa Barbara will transport you to the chicest vacation spot you can imagine. Boutiques, restaurants, and taprooms pack the downtown area with fun (and Funk in the Funk Zone) and as little as ten minutes outside of downtown, you’ll find some of the best hikes and views in all of central California. Did I mention all the wine tasting?? SB has something for every type of group and you won’t be disappointed traveling to Santa Barbara with friends, whether it’s a weekend getaway, a road trip, or a Santa Barbara bachelorette.
