What Guests are saying: Testimonials
'We had a wonderful time in your cottage. Everything was perfect! Our memories of this quaint home will be with us forever because our daughter was married Saturday, and our stay here will be mingled with her sweet day. Thank you,' Elena Johnson -Feb. 2009
'We enjoyed your cottage so much! It was our home and working base for the week of our daughter's wedding. This cottage gave us all a place to be at home-away-from-home. Thank you so much for such a wonderful memory.' Frank and Kathy - June 2008
We really liked this place. We actually live in Santa Barbara but our house got flooded so we were staying here and we loved it! -May 2008
We had a wonderful time in your cottage while visiting our daughter and sister who lives in Goleta. It was a very special time since we celebrated our father’s 80th birthday. The cottage is a lovely place to stay. It was very warm and cozy. We’ll definitely keep it in mind for the next time. (The Netherlands – Europe) March 20-Ap

About the owner: My wife & I have lived in Santa Barbara for 29 yrs and invite you to come visit our Charming Cottages. There is no place like Santa Barbara in the world and we think you will agree with us after you have stayed with us in the heart of the Santa Barbara. Known as the American Riviera.
Why the Owner Chose The Mesa (Beach Area): Our three Cottages are very charming inside and out. The landscape area surrounding the three Cottages matches the Cottages them selves. The San Roque area neighborhood is a very desirable area for locals to purchase Real Estate because of its family oriented life style and sought after school district. Also its proximity to beaches , shopping and Wine Country. We invested here because of all of these reasons.
