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 2007

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 2006

'Beautiful home! Everything was more than expected! Santa Barbara is a gorgeous place. Have memories to last a lifetime. Recommend you home to anyone. Thanks, John and Stacey. May 2008

About Cherise

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

Why Cherise chose Santa Barbara

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at the Hummingbird Cottage could not have been more perfect. We loved the quaint cottage, especially its beautiful gardens, the lovely front porch with rocking chairs and hammock, the well-equipped kitchen, and how sunny, airy, clean and fresh the house was. We will definitely be back.

Great stay on a beautiful property! (Butterfly and Ladybug)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Butterfly and Ladybug cottages for the weekend of my bridal shower and it was absolutely wonderful! It was so nice to stay in a house like this where many of the kitchen items are there for use! Parking was easy, even for multiple cars. We utilized the outside patio furniture (Lifetime brand chairs and some tables) to have the bridal shower outside in the yard.

The property was well kept with the exception of the pull-out bed in the living room of Butterfly cottage missing most all of the springs that kept the pull-out mattress supported. It had only 3 springs when we arrived then one fell each night because of the lack of support elsewhere. We were able to sleep in it because of the top, middle, and bottom bar that runs across, it was just sagging at the feet and not super comfortable, so I wouldn't recommend that bed for any older adults or people with pains in their body. I messaged the owners about it and I'm sure it will be fixed by the time you might stay! That was the only problem though - everything else was amazing!

Lots of storage in the bedrooms, kitchen for food, and outside if you have any coolers or chairs (which you really don't need because they're supplied too!). Very spacious in the Butterfly cottage living room which is where most of my family and friends spent their time! Beautiful natural light in both the Hummingbird and Ladybug cottages too! If you're looking for a beach, I recommend Arroyo Burro Beach as is shown in the photos. There were a few private beaches that popped up on Google, but Arroyo Burro is a good bet!

Overall 5 stars all around!

Wonderful weekend for a group of 16

  • 5 of 5

My group of 16 stayed at the 3 cottages for a weekend and we had a great stay! Spacious, comfortable, clean, great location and great communication with the owner. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!

Beautiful gardens, well-kept cottages, perfect family getaway

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and Cherise the property manager was wonderful! It was the perfect multi-family getaway and close to the beach and downtown state street. We went on an unusually hot weekend (90 degree temps) so with no ac the cottages got pretty warm during the day, but they are well-equipt with fans. We will definitely return!

Property was excellent and well situated with easy access to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We were in Santa Barbara for a family reunion and our family group rented all three cottages for the long weekend. Each house and grounds had great character and we took advantage of the patios and porch areas in the morning and late afternoons. We would highly recommend this property and would rent it again.

Wonderful days!

  • 5 of 5

My family was in Santa Barbara to attend a wedding and with two families, staying somewhere together was a goal. The versatility of having the three cabins gave us communal areas in the patios and living rooms, as well as privacy in the individual homes. They are beautiful: lushly landscaped making a simple coffee on the terrace a moment to savor. The kitchens were well equipped and we were able to arise, make coffee and breakfast and wander around seeing who was awake without any planning or scheduling. The places were very clean, well equipped and the days floated by easily. The location was easy to get to (15 minutes from ocean and airport) and quiet. I highly recommend staying here!!!

Lovely and private

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Hummingbird and Butterfly cottages. The houses were tidy and clean and had all the extra amenities (blow dryers, coffee filters, lots of towels) that a group of 8 ladies would need!

We took the train from San Diego to Santa Barbara and the cottages were just a short taxi/uber away from the train station, Urban Wine Trail and night life.
