Our Summerland vacation rentals offer you the chance to indulge in California's golden coast, beachside attractions, and world class local wine region. The quaint, picturesque small town will give you peace and relaxation while holding the keys to a wide and varied offering of local attractions, day trips, and memorable experiences. There is something for everyone to enjoy in one of our Southern California vacation rentals.
Just a few miles south of the iconic beach hubs of Santa Barbara and Montecito,and 60 miles north of the famous Malibu surf, Summerland is a beautiful blend of luxury, memorable beach experiences, and a top-tier, hand-crafted viticulture experience. With only about 1,500 residents, the charm of a classic American town can be seen everywhere.
Envisioned as a spiritualist community in the 1880s, it soon grew as the discovery of an ample supply of natural oil caused a housing boom in the mid 1890s. As the frenzy slowly dwindled, the town attracted residents immersed in the arts, which has made the small city a haven for a seemingly endless array of creative mediums.
Our Summerland vacation rentals offer you the chance to take advantage of the temperate Mediterranean climate. These predictable temperatures mean that no matter what month you visit, you'll never have an average temperature higher than 72 degrees. The consistent climate allows for year-round access to amazing hikes, surfing, relaxing sandy beaches, day trips to Santa Barbara, and wine tasting in the Santa Ynez Valley.
Jump in your car and take a short 40-mile trip north into the heart of the Santa Barbara wine culture and you'll find yourself in Santa Ynez. The main street is chock-full of world-class tasting rooms and local artisans featuring everything from hand crafted cheeses to works by up-and-coming artists. Featured in the popular movie Sideways, you'll be able to create your own wine experience or reserve your spot on a professional wine tasting tour.
If you're looking to delve into the local wine scene without a drive, Summerland Vineyards has a tasting room right in town. With a style that looks like it was just shipped from Cape Cod, their wine haven gives you the chance to sample their vinos while the crisp ocean breeze swirls around your glass.
Grab your sandals, picnic basket, and your pup to take a stroll to Lookout Park. The quiet beach offers kids and dogs the chance to play the salty sea waves, while the adults soak up some sun. With plenty of space to run and play, everyone can enjoy the beauty of these sandy shores.
With a number of watercraft adventure companies, boating tours, fishing day trips, and local surf schools, there is no shortage of water-inspired activities to delve into. If you're looking for something a little more slow paced, there is a large antiquing community in and around Summerland. Artists and small craft shops dot the coastline, offering unique elements of the local culture and lifestyle.
