Inventory Management

Before your home receives guests, we create a video inventory roster of all the furnishings, accessories, and kitchen content. Our housekeeping and inspection team uses the data prior to guest check-in and again at check-out.

Regular Maintenance Schedules

The maintenance of your home is the most important aspect of this business. In addition to our routine inspections, we also conduct quarterly health and safety checks to inspect smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and change all batteries.

Deposits over Damage Waivers

Santa Barbara Vacation Rentals assures protection of your home with security deposits rather than offering damage waivers. We also don’t battle with third-party insurance companies when it comes to replacing items for our homeowners and risk not receiving the full value.


SBVR offers some of the best technology in the business to protect you and respect your home. Each home will be equipped with sensors that alert us to noise, smoke, glass breaks, and humidity. These new, best-of-class systems assure your guests are not getting too rowdy and disturbing the neighbors, smoking, leaving windows open, or creating water leaks. Guests can be notified in the form of emails or even lights, which illuminate from the sensors giving a warning to guests that they are reaching designated limits. These devices also send a signal to management in the event someone may try to cover up or disable the device.

All homes will also have electronic keyless entry systems that allow us to control access to your home by guests, maintenance, and cleaning personnel. SBVR also knows when someone enters and exits the property, and can change access privileges in real-time.
