traveler reviews for this santa barbara villa rental

Far Beyond Expectations

Review submitted: May 22, 2014   Date of arrival: January 15, 2014

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.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Heaven on earth.

Review submitted: May 20, 2014   Date of arrival: May 6, 2014

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!

Review submitted: January 3, 2014   Date of arrival: December 29, 2013

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!
