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

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 house 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.

The house was great. Unfortunately we didn't get to enjoy the outdoor patio etc. because of the weather, but the house was actually much better then expected. Very close to everything and very easy to rent. I hope to go back sometime, but next time with family...

We stayed in Butterfly Cottage along with my parents and our toddler, and we all had a wonderful time. The cottage is well located, in the convenient San Roque neighborhood, and is a pretty, comfortable place to stay. The gardens are lovely, and we all agreed that this was a perfect base for us. The beds were comfortable, the living room was bright and welcoming, and the kitchen was very well equipped for cooking. Additionally, the owner's agent provided clear information about the rental and their policies. We highly recommend this to anyone planning to visit Santa Barbara.

Our stay at Hummingbird Cottage was wonderfully relaxing and fun. Hate to say it, but we slept better than at home! NIce quiet neighborhood, convenient to shopping, sites, etc. It was great to sit on front porch and enjoy our morning coffee and to be able to grill fresh fish from the fish market for supper on the back patio. Thanks to the dog friendly policy, we brought our cocker spaniel along. Went to the dog beach one day, too. Fun! The property was exactly as presented in photos and descriptions and the owner was flexible on dates when I wanted to adjust our stay by one day. Santa Barbara is a whole different world from the rest of Southern California...beautiful and uncrowded. I highly recommend a visit and stay at this cozy cottage.

We had a wonderful time at the Butterfly Cottage! It's close to everything we wanted to do (i.e. beach, wine tasting, downtown SB, and etc). The house is well kept and fully stocked. Plus, a dip in the private Jacuzzi was the perfect end to our mini vacation. Thank you!

What a great experience- from working with the owner/assistant to set up our accommodations to checking out, the process was very easy.

The rental was very sweet, with all the amenities one needed to have a comfortable stay. The inside was clean and cozy. The outside had beautiful gardens and fruit trees, a spa that my friends loved, and plenty of spots to relax. The location was about 10-15 minutes from downtown SB and was very well protected from neighbors and traffic noise.

Overall, a great experience and we will certainly book again!
