This is a truly cute little Airbnb near downtown Santa Barbara. It’s in a great location and a perfect place to stay if visiting with a small group of friends.
Palihouse Santa Barbara
One of downtown Santa Barbara’s newer hotels, it’s perfect for exploring the city. It offers charming decor, a pool for those warm days, and most importantly, is pet friendly.
The Lamb Stone Cottage
A private, charming little guest house that’s closer to the beach if you’re looking for a coastal and relaxing stay in Santa Barbara.
Amazing for dinner with naturally-leavened, Neapolitan-style pizza made with seasonal California ingredients, located at the Montecito Country Mart.
Also in the Montecito Country Mart, this is the sweetest little cafe to grab breakfast or lunch.
Ascending Health Juice
If you’re looking for more of a health food restaurant/juice bar, this is the best place in town. Pick up a coffee or matcha with homemade nut milk. Their lunch menu is also full of all-organic ingredients.
Jake and Jones
We love Jake and Jones because they have a mindfully-curated rotation of our favorite brands, including THE FULLEST Saffron line. Located in downtown SB, they support emerging, small, and cult-favorite designers who have sustainable and eco-friendly practices and offer everything from kitchen essentials to luxurious designer pieces.
Upstairs at Pierre Lafond + Wendy Foster
A classic Montecito shopping highlight, Pierre Lafond focuses more on home goods and accessories, while downstairs is Wendy Foster that hosts some great women’s clothing.
A unique botanical garden in Montecito located on the historic estate of Madame Gonna Walska, a famous opera singer, that’s now open to the public. Make a morning or afternoon of it and enjoy a walk around their 25 different gardens.
The most beautiful hike, which has very easy access but feels like you are in the middle of a forest. Also great for seeing some of the beautiful homes of Montecito.
Trip to Miramar
This stunning hotel on the beach is a great excuse for a day trip. Have a walk around, check out the beach, and have some lunch. Also, they have a few shops like Goop, The Webster, and James Perse.
