Overview

Santa Barbara Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

This luxurious Spanish Mediterranean style cottage with travertine flooring throughout, state of the art kitchen, stone fireplace, and private patio is set on a hillside in the beautiful Las Positas Valley, the last rural area in the center of Santa Barbara with views of the surrounding Oak Forest and Channel Islands. The Veronica Springs Cottage is classical Santa Barbara at its best.

The private setting on over an acre is a short distance from the local Arroyo Burro Beach (Hendry’s). Central to the City you are minutes from downtown Santa Barbara, the Harbor, upper State Street, the Mesa and all the restaurants and entertainment Santa Barbara has to offer.

Room Descriptions: Designed for comfort, conversation and entertainment the elegant Great Room combines a seating area including a leather couch, loveseat and side chair with valley and island views. The adjacent dining area is designed to comfortably accommodate six and adjoins the state of the art kitchen.

The cozy master bedroom has views of the islands, the valley and oaks. The room features a king-size bed with side tables, the finest linens and a large closet. The attached master bathroom was custom designed with tumbled travertine stone, a large walk in shower, porcelain pedestal sink and mirror vanity.

The second bedroom also features a king-size bed with side dressers, the finest linens and a large closet. The room has beautiful views of the valley and oaks.

The third bedroom with two full size beds will accommodate two adults or up to four children. It also includes the finest linens and another large closet. The room looks out to the patio and the beautiful Hope Ranch hillside.

In the area...: The outgoing can take a bike ride to the beach or anywhere in the city from this one of a kind location or enjoy a casual tour of the City then return home for a view of the glorious sunset over the ocean from the master bedroom, great room or the tile roofed veranda.

The San Marcos Pass taking you past Lake Cachuma is close by should you decide to spend a day in the wine country of the Santa Ynez Valley or you can drive the 101 along the spectacular Gaviota Coast.

Review Submitted May 6, 2008     



We had a great time at the cottage. The house was gorgeous and the location couldn't have been better. The house has a beautiful view of the hills and it is a short 3 minute drive to the beach. The owner was friendly and very helpful. We will definitely return.

Amazing Vacation Rental and Exceptional Host!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 4 other women rented this beautiful home for 8 nights and we have nothing but good things to say. The house was better than I had expected, everything was spotless and the towels and sheets were, as promised, high quality. We loved the decor, the location (about 15-20 min walk to the beautiful beach) to the grocery store, shopping etc. Christine is an amazing host and in my opinion went above and beyond when we made a few requests for things we needed they magically appeared on our doorstep. She shared her local knowledge with us and showed us the beautiful property next door also. We loved being able to sit outside in such privacy and of course the weather was exceptional. Thank you also for letting us use the beach chairs they came in very handy. I'm probably not saying enough here but it was well worth the money spent and we felt safe and well taken care of...thank you Christine!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband, son and 3 grandchildren 12, 7, and 8 enjoyed a week's stay. The home is perfect and so comfortable. Everything top notch and so well equipped. The location was great so close to beach, parks and downtown. We could not have been more pleased! Hope to stay again next summer! Thanks Chrissy!

Great spot!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for a bit over 2 months this past winter. The property is everything and more than the pictures demonstrate. The location is great and the cottage is well decorated in a tasteful manner; the beds, linens and all furnishings are top notch. Chrissy and Rex keep the property and the cottage in immaculate shape. They are also incredibly kind/attentive if there is ever anything that needs attention. The patio and the house flows so is great for having friends over. The only drawbacks..for some...are that the stairs up to the cottage are steep and uneven and there is no yard space. I would recommend it wholeheartedly though to anyone wanting to enjoy the wonders of Santa Barbara!

What an exceptional property!

  • 5 of 5

I am a very picky traveler and had reservations about using VRBO. Staying at this property was a delightful surprise! It was tastefully decorated and as clean as a whistle! It had all of the conveniences that I like while traveling (thick towels, quality sheets, nice soaps etc.) and a few that I did not expect (heated floors, wine on arrival). I had the opportunity to meet the owner who is simply delightful! She recommended a local restaurant (Brophy Brothers) that we loved---not a tourist trap, just great food. She was warm and welcoming.

I look forward to returning to this lovely property!

Absolute perfection

  • 5 of 5

I stay in vacation rentals on most trips I take and this is by far the nicest rental we have ever been to. There is care taken to use nice sheets, dishes and silverware. And everything isn't all tattered and worn in the way a lot of rentals are. The decor is cozy and sophisticated, the landscaping impeccably maintained, and the location perfect for getting to the beach or State Street. I loved my stay at Veronica Springs and hope to make the trip an annual event.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I plus two other couples enjoyed a weekend here. The house is beautiful and in a great location. It was VERY clean, linens were nice and the bed was super comfortable. We enjoyed the living area and being able to open the windows and enjoy the ocean breeze.

My ONLY complaint, and I would def still stay here, is the acoustics - you can hear conversations and other things behind closed doors. But again, not a deterrent, just something to be aware of.

We look forward to staying here again in the future!
