7. See new sights: seaside apartment (from 110 USD)

Built in 1912, this building was first used as the Santa Barbara Yacht Club, but then became a bed and breakfast venue. It now has more than 30 years of experience of serving customers. Here, you definitely know you are getting your money’s worth with hosts who know how to make their guests truly happy. And it is also one of the best beachside Santa Barbara vacation rentals. This apartment has a large variety of amenities. It has a fully stocked kitchen, kitchen equipment, a flat-screen television, and a gas fireplace. It is right next to the beach, which is within walking distance, and the rooms are tastefully decorated to reflect the seaside theme. There are other guest residences within the Yacht Club Inn, and you can meet other guests downstairs to talk about your travels and add some new stories to your memories.

This is a unique Airbnb experience where you get much more of a BnB feel. This was a refreshing change up on our road trip where we stayed in all private residences. The communal area downstairs ended up being a great meeting point where we got to know travelers from all over! We all ended up eating dinner together, sharing wine and sharing travel stories. Also very close to the beach which was a huge plus. Amanda

9. Step into another world: a yurt (from 209 USD)

There’s a hole in the roof, no Wi-Fi and it feels almost isolated. At most, you can only bring one other person. Sounds questionable, doesn’t it? But take a look inside and you’ll see why it’s so special … The yurt is a magnificent tent whose origins can be traced back to the nomadic people of Middle Asia. This yurt, which costs 209 USD a night, near the heart of Santa Barbara, is likewise a place for wandering souls to take some rest. The unique skylight on the top allows plenty of refreshing light to flood the place. Listen to the rain as it pitter patters on the yurt’s canvas. The structure of the tent creates a great surround sound system for you to play any music you wish. There is no Wi-Fi here, as the host states that this is where people can truly come to re-calibrate. After all, in a place so otherworldly and comforting, such as this, why would you want any?

Jennifer was an amazing host with an incredible space. I brought my wife up to Santa Barbara for a birthday weekend getaway and it was absolutely magical. Can’t thank her enough for providing such a wonderful experience. Karl
If the yurt gets too warm for you, hop on over to the compound’s pool. A cold dip on a hot day in the midst of nature is divine. And if you feel like you’ve been away from civilization a little bit too long, don’t worry. This yurt is located just 12 minutes away (by car) from downtown Santa Barbara, so you are free to enjoy all the attractions of the city too.

12. Be moved: mountain view apartment (from 149 USD)

Mountains, those towering mounds of stone make us feel small and human again. They fill us with awe and respect, and we travel great distances just to see them. But, how great would it be if we could wake up to the sight of one every day?

One of the best mountain-view apartments in Santa Barbara, this Airbnb is meant for a family stay, and it accommodates up to six guests. From the bedrooms, you can see the rolling shapes of the mountains out the window, and, because of the city’s unique structure, it is only a five-minute car drive away from the beach.

The host is happy to introduce some of the best hiking and trekking spots for you to appreciate more of the city’s natural beauty. The property is also within a few miles of State Street in downtown Santa Barbara. You get the best of the sun, shopping, and soil in one apartment for the low price of 149 USD a night.

Beautiful location, amazing views, and plenty of opportunity for peace and quiet. Note that this is a multi-unit property with other tenants. The unit was new, clean, and well-maintained. Stefan’s friend, Marti, was communicative over text and allowed us to come a bit earlier than the check in time - which was great. Bahareh

It’s recommended that you get a car if you plan to stay at this place, as the apartment is on a mountain, after all. The breathtaking views are definitely worth it.

13. Clearly a dream: a glass house in nature (from 199 USD)

You know that mixed feeling of wanting to be surrounded by trees and nature, but also wanting to be indoors and feeling protected at the same time? If you’re looking for unique Airbnb rentals in Santa Barbara, this glass house, standing in the middle of the woods, is yours to stay in for 199 USD. It’s like something right out of a child’s imagination.

The house was designed by two incredible architects from Berlin. The Birch Glass House comprises a birch wood framework and two solid one-way glass walls to give the feeling of being outside, while you remain cosily indoors and hidden from outside eyes. The compound also has a hammock for you to rest on. There are other similar houses nearby for other guests, but they are spaced apart enough for you to feel like you have enough privacy.

The host also has 14 chickens that lay eggs daily, and she is willing to give her guests a few for their breakfast. Bask in the sounds and sights of nature from a new perspective.

My girlfriend and I wanted a night away from the city and the world so we figured a dreamy glass house could fulfill such a desire. AND THIS PLACE WAS ABSOLUTELY HEAVEN. We had such a wonderful time and were blown away by the grounds and our perfect little glass cottage. Going to sleep amongst the trees and waking up to a perfect little nature right in front of us was so wonderful. William
Even if this location feels very off-the-grid, it is, in reality, a mere 2 miles (3.2 kilometres) from shopping malls, great wine tasting, and groceries.

14. Just chill: glamping (from 82 USD)

You’re going to be on the ground, surrounded by trees, and in a tent. You’re also going to have to walk everywhere from here. But, this isn’t your regular, mosquito-bite-ridden camping ground. This is a cool Airbnb for glamping in Santa Barbara. For 82 USD a night, by yourself or with another soul-searching buddy, you’ll get access to a great homestay with the most chill vibes and a really convenient location.

The spacious tent is meant for five people, but it is rented out for two guests only, so you’ll surely have plenty of room to move around. Be surrounded by the lush Santa Barbara greenery as you take photos with the fairy lights and candles.

No need to worry about data use because this tent comes with Wi-Fi. It also has an indoor bathroom. No need to worry about transport either; there is free use of bikes, and many popular spots in Santa Barbara are accessible by foot from here, including the Santa Barbara Bowl. You might even fall asleep to the distant sounds of music and cheering from the large concert venue.

We had a very nice time staying here. There was a comfortable air bed in the tent. Being able to park in the driveway was very convenient. The location is great - we walked to brunch and shopping. Kate

The host guarantees that you will be in a safe neighborhood; they don’t even lock the door themselves. With all of this in mind, you can just relax and enjoy all the fun of Santa Barbara at your own pace.
