Santa Barbara Hosts

Unfortunately the local city council has banned short term vacation rentals in our area, and hosts are already receiving ‘nasty grams’ from the city.

I have a friend in the chamber of commerce who explained that the council is ‘pro-AirBnB’, but received ‘outside pressures’ that made their decision final.

This is a terrible example of lobbying that we must stand up against as responsible hosts. If anyone in the area would like to get together and fight for our rights I would love to make some change, please be in contact if that would interest you!!
