'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

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.
Cherise purchased this cottage in 2004
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.
Had a lovely stay! Nice neighborhood away from the busy-ness of downtown. We enjoyed the garden and quiet patio. Would stay again.
We had a wonderful time staying here and would love to come back again. The neighborhood was peaceful and having our dog there worked perfectly. We thought we were going to miss being right in the middle of town, but it turned out that we had such easy access to places like the Arroyo Dog Beach and avoided being stuck in rush hour traffic as we decided to drive up the coast. The cottage was very clean and well kept, a perfect getaway for our spring vacation. Thanks!
We rented this place as a temporary place to stay because we had a water leak at our house and waiting for construction to be finished. We ended up not staying at all because it was a studio. It was advertised as a one bedroom, but once we got there it was teeny. Tiny fridge with almost no freezer and no bathtub. We have a one year old and a dog so a one bedroom was key for us. It just didn't work for us. It would be a great alternative though than staying at a hotel with a kitchenette because it's much cheaper. Just read the details of the home.
The cottage is small but very cute and clean. Nice french doors open onto an enclosed patio and there is a quaint side garden area. Cherise was great about giving us an earlier check-in time and addressed a problem with the bbq quickly. She allowed us some extra time to check out as well. The only down side was that the bed is so soft that it is uncomfortable to sleep in and the fridge does not really get cold. Overall, a very lovely and quiet place to stay.
We were in Santa Barbara for a wedding and decided we wanted to bring our bichon and Lhasa puppies with us. They were thrilled and we were very pleased with our Lady Bug cottage rental. It was so cute and cozy. The dogs enjoyed a completely fenced in garden in which they had the freedom to go in and out. And we enjoyed the comfortable bed and outside patio. We would definitely recommend Lady Bug cottage. Connie & Bill
We rented this cottage between to other house rentals in Santa Barbara. We were desperate and needed a dog friendly place to stay for 9 days. The manager Cherise was very friendly and professional. The cottage has a fenced very dog friendly private yard, that was nice.It was really quiet until other "party guests" moved inn in the other cottage. The cottage is promoted for 4 and after we (2 adults, one child and a dog) moved inn we got a message that the sleeping sofa was broken and we had to use the airmadras. The pillows and blankets were old and full of mites-nothing for allergic people.
After one day the old fridge was full of ice and difficult to use. This place could be really nice with simple remodeling (remove the old carpet, use hard floors, change of pillows and blankets, buy a new fridge and cooking top and a new sleeping sofa). Until this is done I would advise guest to find another place to stay.
