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.

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.

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!

Charming Cottage in Beautiful Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5
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.
