Charming Cottage in Beautiful Santa Barbara
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.
