Why We Love It

Santa Barbara, often referred to as the 'Riviera of the West', is known for its wide beaches, beautiful inns, extensive shopping, relaxing wineries, and unique Spanish architecture. From walking the Urban Wine Trail, to hiking the Santa Ynez Mountains, to playing a round of golf on the coast, there's plenty of activity for everyone.
