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 Hope
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.

Older but clean
Very easy to work with the property managers. Cherise was super accommodating. We had everything we needed. Worked perfect for our extended family while we attended our Niece’s wedding.
Great place to stay
Came to Santa Barbara for a wedding. Initially we secured all 3 cottages for 11 total but another family asked to stay with us so 16 of us ended up staying. 10 adults, 3 teens, 3 kids. The cottages were perfect for all of us. We liked the separate living spaces so we could each retreat to our own space if needed. We were able to have meals together. Had all cooking supplies available (except for the food of course). The beds were comfortable. Plenty of towels. The cottages had everything we needed. The landscape outside was charming.
It was unseasonably warm during our stay (80 plus) air conditioning would have been a plus but we were well aware that the cottages had no ac. Fans were provided and did help tremendously. One issue I did notice was a septic smell that would come and go in the butterfly cottage.
Overall, we all enjoyed our stay and commented that we would definitely love to stay here again.
I would also like to add that the property owner and manager did not bother us at all the entire weekend. We didn't see any neighbors. The cleaning lady showed up promptly at the time of check out. I say this because the night before the wedding we were asked to go help finish some wedding preparations at the grooms parents vacation rental home and it became a BIG issue with the owners of the rental and basically kicked us out of their rental.
We rented all 3 cottages as family was coming in from all parts of the country for my Dad's 97th birthday. What a delight! There was ample room to visit with each other, have community meals and separate sleeping quarters for each family group. The cottages are ideally situated, close to shopping, restaurants, etc. yet are quiet and peaceful. Lovely gardens and décor.
Great location for a group
I housed a group of dancers and choreographers from NYC at the cottages, and they loved it! Everyone was able to have their own space, but also be near one another and socialize. It was a perfect solution for a unique group of tenants.
Charming cottages just right for family gathering, very comfortable and great location.
We could not be more delighted with this set of cottages. We were celebrating my Dad's 75th birthday and needed a space that would allow him to bring his dog and also for his adult children and his grandchildren to have space to be together but also not too cramped together. These three cottages were absolutely perfect--just a few minutes from the house where one of those children live, and just the right size. The cottages were everything we could have hoped for, and had all of the equipment we needed to cook and eat together and enjoy our weekend. It was close enough to good shopping and the beach, too, which allowed for excellent outings.
There were a few pleasant surprises--the description said there was no air conditioning and just fans, but that seems to be outdated information. Also, there were a few basics in the cupboard (e.g. some spices and coffee filters) that helped make it easier for us to do our own cooking. We couldn't find extra garbage bags after emptying the trash on the first day, but perhaps we just didn't look in the right place. That's really the only thing we were missing. The cottages were comfortable, the space just right for our group of six adults (three couples) and five children, and we'd definitely stay here again.

we had a great time everything was excellent, except occasionally when sitting outside the septic put off such a strong odor that you could not enjoy the surroundings. but the cottages them self were fantastic. thanks again
