family vacation rentals santa barbara

Travel for Kids has lots of fun things to do with kids in and around Santa Barbara, whether it's whale watching, biking in the sunshine, visiting the Mission Santa Barbara, building sand castles at the beach or horseback riding, but you'll need a fun place to stay. Kid-friendly vacation rentals are easy to find on Travel for Kids.

Here's our own Travel for Kids hand-picked list of family friendly vacation rentals in and around Santa Barbara, all styles and price ranges, and close to the beach.

A house or condo rental has lots of advantages for families – a full kitchen and refrigerator, so you don't need to eat all your meals in restaurants, room to spread out all your stuff, beach towels, boogie boards, washer and dryer, and more. Rental policies can change, however, so be sure to check at the time you make your reservation to be sure your desired family amenities are still available.
