We were here for a business retreat and absolutely loved our experience. Much bigger than it looks in the pictures.
Perfect set up!
We booked this place for 6 couples last minute. They were very accommodating and let us check in early. The pictures do not do this place justice. We all said they need to put new pics up. It’s a beautiful property! We had a memorable trip and hope to be back. Claudia even helped us with securing plans in the area. She was great! The only thing that would have made it better is more king size beds. Everyone had their own space and the property was perfect for our size group. The view is beautiful. We were a quick drive to everything we wanted to do. Highly recommend!
Words cannot begin to describe the beauty
We had our children , spouses & 14 grandkids ages 1 to 24. The house couldn't have been more perfect . If you want a relaxing, peaceful, beautiful place to go, this is the house for you
Unforgettable stay at Villa Verano!
This home is beautiful and even more grand in person. We had a large group from ages ranging from 70 to 5 and all of us found something new to do on the property everyday. From watching movies in the theater, swimming in the heated pool, reading a book on the labyrinth, to having a glass of wine on the patio overlooking the city as the sun was setting, we all enjoyed every moment spent on the property.The staff was courteous and respectful and the home was incredibly clean and the grounds were very well maintained. We definitely plan to come back again next year as a family and relax on this incredible estate.
Looks far better than it IS! Buyer Beware!!!!
The property is not really 8 bedrooms so be sure to confirm your needs before booking. (A bedroom is a room with both a bed and a closet ... three of their "bedrooms" have no closets.) The pool house supposedly houses two bedrooms but a loft room with no closet hardly qualifies.
Also, with a property as big and expensive as this one, you would be surprised to find all the missing elements. There is no sound system that allows you to enjoy your playlists throughout the house and entertainment areas. The screening room is great but a broken delivery system leaves much to be desired. The house in general needs new carpet (placing area rugs over dirty carpet is just gross) and a good cleaning. We lowered a shade in the master suite bathroom only to have much dirt (years worth) fall to the floor. There should be daily housecleaning like in a five star hotel and that should be included in the price. There should be loads of pool towels for guests use. The game room is great until you realize that the jukebox does not work and the air hockey table is subpar at best.
Beware. The pictures are nice but they were taken years ago and the bedroom situation is not at all accurate. There are FIVE bedrooms. And these 5 should all have KING sized beds in them. Only two of them have king beds is them. Also, two of them have little beds for kids I guess but unless your kids are tiny, they would never sleep there. The sleeping arrangements listed are terribly misleading.
Overall, until they do some major upgrades, keep looking. Four nights was enough to allow this review to be taken very seriously.
We regret that Villa Verano did not meet your expectations. We are certainly surprised that although you toured the property in person prior to making your reservation, you felt as if its online representation was inaccurate or outdated.
All of the bedrooms have either a closet or a dresser.
I am sorry you were upset that the sound system for the upstairs entertainment areas does not play in the downstairs game room; however, that area of the home does have its own separate Bose sound system.
The screening room has always worked fine for our other guests and we are puzzled by the reference to a broken delivery system. It is routinely tested to ensure proper service.
You are the first guest to complain about the Villa’s carpet. The expensive area rugs throughout the home are not placed to cover soiled carpet areas.
It seems unlikely that “years worth” of dirt would fall from a shade that is cleaned twice weekly by professional housekeepers. You were made aware that daily housekeeping is always available for a charge. If we were to include daily housekeeping in all rentals, which most of our guests do not request, we would have to increase our rates accordingly. We would have been happy to arrange any frequency of cleaning you had requested.
The jukebox in the game room is a decorative antique item not intended for use. Regarding the air hockey, your suggestion was well taken and the consumer game table has been replaced with a professional grade model. We do appreciate that you pointed this out.
All of the bed sizes are clearly listed on the website; the smaller beds you refer to are deluxe extra long twin mattresses, which can comfortably sleep an adult. There is nothing misleading about the Villa’s sleeping arrangements, which are described in detail online.
We strive to provide the very best experience to anyone renting the Villa and have never received anything less than a 5 star review. We truly care about our guests, which is why many of them have booked with us multiple times.
We found new nooks, crannies and hideaway places everyday, including the last one...and all were intriguing, lovely, fun and offered something for everyone in our very large party.
It was headquarters for our family and wedding party and within easy reach of downtown and the Montecito CC, where we held the reception.
All our guests were amazed and delighted with the house, the pool area and the expansive grounds. The view was breathtaking, overlooking the sloping hills to the sea.
The perfect setting for any event with room to spare.
