Santa Ynez Vacation Rentals is a valuable contributing member of our local community in many ways. Below are just six of the most important ways we impact our county and the towns within!
1. Job Creators
We provide jobs for a full-time staff, and 10 part-time housekeepers – your neighbors in the Santa Ynez Valley community.
2. Local Loyalists
3. Small Business Supporters
Through our business, we support local small businesses like pool service companies, plumbers, appliance repairmen, landscapers, gardening companies, designers, print shops, transportation companies, bike rental companies, babysitters, grocery stores, local farms, and more. We also support the 40 homeowners who depend on short-term rental (STR) income.
4. Community Philanthropists
We believe in giving back to our community. SYVR donates considerably to charitable organizations such as People Helping People, Angels Foster Care, Santa Barbara Youth Project, Environmental Defense Center, Solvang School, and the Santa Ynez Valley Foundation.
5. Environmental Advocates
We are an eco-friendly business and we promote environmentally friendly practices, including plant-based amenities and cleaning products. We are huge advocates of solar power, low flow water systems, and native/drought tolerant landscaping for all of our properties.
6. Revenue Creators for the County
Our business contributes significantly to the county’s “transient occupancy tax” (“TOT”), which collected more than $1.2 million in 2015 for our community.
