VERONICA SPRINGS COTTAGE, LUXURIOUS, MEDITERRANEAN, VIEWS, NEAR THE BEACH & TOWN

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.

What an exceptional property!

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

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.

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!

Charming Cottage in Beautiful Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 14, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
I recently stayed at the Veronica Springs cottage with my family (4 adults and 2 kids, ages 6 and 1). We were all extremely pleased with the cleanliness of everything and how well stocked it was (grill, beach towel, beach chairs, coffee (with filters!!), etc!). It was also pretty child-friendly. We were greeted by the owner upon arrival and even received a nice welcome bottle of wine (which we didn't get to enjoy and forgot to take home! oops!). The outside looks exactly like pictures with lush and vibrant plants everywhere...just beautiful. Beach is nearby but unfortunately, it's not walkable due to high-traffic street. Zoo is an easy 10-12 minute drive. Grocery stores about 1 mile away. Elings Park (good for paraglider watching and mountain biking) is also less than 1 mile away. My only complaints (and they would NOT deter me from staying here again) are that there is light traffic noise in the master bedroom, the guest bathroom shower never got 100% hot, no A/C (being from Las Vegas, we like A/C even though I'm sure this is standard in CA and probably not needed in Santa Barbara), I also would have liked keyless entry or a lockbox to return the keys. Just felt a little iffy the way we left the cottage. But again, it is super clean, well stocked and in a great location. You can't beat it! Highly recommend.

holiday haven

I brought my adult family (three couples) to the cottage for Thanksgiving holiday fun. We all loved the place, each for slightly different reasons. I loved the cleanliness and comfy beds, and the ease of dealing with the owner. Others loved the perfect layout where we could be together yet also have private rooms, others loved the incredible shower (great water pressure), others loved the lush flowers on the balcony and its views. The kitchen was well-equipped and the cottage is very convenient for everything - downtown, beach walks, the route to the wineries. We use VRBO frequently - this is one of the best!
