Facts for Renters

  • Santa Maria-style barbecue is considered a cornerstone of the California culinary scene. This unique cooking method seasons meat with salt, garlic salt and pepper before roasting it on a large iron grill over red oak wood. The meat is served with a side of pinquito beans, garlic bread and macaroni salad.
  • There are several local wineries in the valley which produce mostly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Festivals throughout the year let renters get a taste of the local flavor, including the Autumn Arts Grapes & Grains Festival, Celebration of Harvest, and Vintners' Festival.
  • Starting in the early 1900s, oil drilling became a prominent business in Santa Maria. By 1957 there were over 1,000 wells in use, which produced $64 million worth of oil. The first large oil strike was in 1904, at a well affectionately nicknamed "Old Maud" by workers.
