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

We encourage our guests to choose local companies to make the most of their visits, including chefs, yoga studios, golf courses, restaurants, wineries, and retail shops.

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.

Take Action

Help us stop the ban on vacation rental homes and achieve fair regulation in the Santa Ynez Valley. Santa Ynez Vacation Rentals is dedicated to being an honorable and valuable contributing member of the Santa Ynez Valley community. We thoroughly screen our guests and provide a comprehensive, professional, rental contract to protect all parties. Many of our guests are repeat renters with excellent rental etiquette, and we are proud to have them as customers.
