We rented this house to bring the family together for our daughter's wedding. It could not have been any better! The owners are wonderful, they were pouring wine for the family who arrived ahead of us. The house is gorgeous. Everything is top notch, no expense spared. It is about a mile from the beach which is great because the beach is often fogged in depending what time of year you stay. We had nothing but sun which let us serve breakfast on the patio and a barbeque on the built-in grill. The bedrooms are all huge with plenty of bathrooms. The hot tub and gas fire pit made a great way to end the day. You won't go wrong with this house!

Far Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I rented the Villa for six weeks during the winter. The house is absolutely spectacular! A great deal of love and attention to detail went into its design and furnishings, and it shows in every room. The grounds and landscaping are equally spectacular. They are meticulously maintained weekly. The location was fabulous--five minutes from Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, the beach and the Beachhouse restaurant (don't miss it!). On a scale of one to ten the property is a TEN. But the real surprise was Chrissy and her husband. They were totally committed to making our stay perfect. And it was. They are a TEN PLUS.

Heaven on earth.

  • 5 of 5
This exquisite 6 bedroom home with a fabulous view spoiled my family rotten! Add to that an extraordinary dinner with Cindy Dollar's Healthy Creations and you'll never want to leave the property. Although it's best to have a car to get into town, the beach is only about 5 minutes away and my adult children jogged the neighborhoods as well as down to the beach. Christine, owner, was great. It's a pristine palace, even for a completely allergic person like myself. Highly recommend both home and Cindy Dollar....will definitely return !

Perfect luxury family vacation house!

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a fabulous multi-family trip to Veronica Springs where four couples, plus kids rang in the new year in style. The house was absolutely gorgeous and would appeal to the most discriminating guests used to the world's top hotels. Crissy's thoughtful design left no detail to chance. From the central music system, both inside and out, to the top of the line chef's kitchen, to the water fountains, hot tub and outdoor fire pit - we loved the house so much, we hardly left to explore. When we did venture out, we found the location centrally located to town and the beach, yet situated among rolling hills. Even with our large group, the doors were so think, we all slept in! My only comment is a few bedroom windows could use more dark curtains to block morning light but other than that, everything in the home is top of the line. It's worth a visit to step into the pages of Architectural Digest to admire this perfect Santa Barbara style villa. Thank you Crissy for a memorable family vacation!

Girls Weekend at the Veronica Springs Villa!

  • 5 of 5
The Veronica Springs Villa is absolutely beautiful and the perfect rental for a long getaway weekend. It is nestled up on a hill with a stunning view from the back patio area, with sights of both the mountains and the ocean. The house itself was impeccably designed, the kitchen and living room area are fantastic areas to gather everyone together, everything is updated and the furniture is so comfortable - every bedroom basically has their own full bathroom as well and can very comfortably fit 10 people. The location of the house is also ideal, it is so close to the Santa Barbara Pier and just a mile away from one of my favourite restaurants, The Boathouse, which is right on the water. I highly recommend renting this house to anyone who is looking for the best and most relaxing stay in Santa Barbara! I will absolutely be renting it again on my next trip!

Five star experience

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home for a week for a family vacation that included toddlers to seniors and we all had a blast. From the beginning, the experience was wonderful, Chrissy was quick to respond and completely professional. The home is a beautiful residence and the grounds are breathtaking. The attention to detail throughout the home is spectacular and the location is a short drive to all that Santa Barbara has to offer. I highly recommend.
