Do you know any California vacation rental spots in modest locations?

My large family (it's going to be between 10 and 14 people - not sure yet) wants to gather for a few days at Christmastime. Money is an issue for some of us and so we can't do more than three nights. Understandably, most of the available rentals that would accommodate a group our size are in high demand areas, and they want a longer holiday stay than we can afford (and in many cases more money per night.) The thing is, we can be totally flexible with location. Anywhere in California between, say, Santa Rosa and San Luis Obispo would be fine, as long as it isn't snowy in December (ruling out the Tahoe area.)

I'd be happy to find a place in a low-demand area. (It would actually be much better for us to have easy access to shopping and highways -- we won't be needing beaches and scenery and such.) And it doesn't even need to be a giant house -- a couple of modest condos adjacent to each other would be just fine too. But when I've tried searching in places like Sacramento or Davis I get nowhere.
Do you know of any places where one might find a vacation rental in an area that isn't pricey-luxe, and might be happy to have a large but quiet and clean family staying there - not party people? We could pay up to say ~500/night.
I've been using VRBO instead of airbnb because airbnb's listings seem much pricier. Are there other sites I should be using?
