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 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 house 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 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.

Serene getaway

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Butterfly Cottage over the 4th of July weekend. The cottage was just as described. Neat clean simple. It was truly serene. The sound of the fountain burbling away and the heady smell of the fragrant flowers made you feel like you were transported to a far corner of Shangri-la. We were in town for a horse show and next year would consider booking the other two cottages in in compound with other riders from our barn. Definitely looking forward to returning

Peaceful Rental Home

  • 5 of 5
The property owner was so helpful and easy to contact with any questions. I rented the Hummingbird and Butterfly cottages for a weekend in September. The cottages were so clean and had almost everything we needed! The property was absolutely well maintained. My friends and I especially loved the outdoor space because it was so tranquil. The cottages are on a quiet area and really close to shops, the freeway, and State Street. I would definitely stay here again!

Santa Barbara Destination Wedding

  • 1 of 5
My daughter had her wedding at the Four Seasons and my two grown children and I stayed at your cottage. We were entirely disappointed with your place. The décor was outdated and uninviting, much to my dismay as the photos didn't paint a clear picture. The master bedroom was so small the door wouldn't open entirely as the bed was in the way. The rug was old and I wouldn't put anything on the floor. The location was basically out of town, it was a 20 minute drive to meet up with our daughter's wedding party either in town or at the hotel. The three cottages share the washing machine - so one morning there was a woman in our porch doing her laundry. Basically, this cottage was unattractive, remotely located and a huge disappointment. I didn't end up sleeping there the night of the wedding, I couldn't bring myself to go back to it. I wouldn't recommend this cottage to anyone.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you were disappointed in the general appearance and layout of the Butterfly Cottage! Yes the cottage is located about 1 mile from upper State Street and 9 miles away from the Four Seasons Biltmore. There is another washing machine on the other side of the driveway and the one that is on the back Butterfly is exclusive to this cottage, so I am not sure why it was being used by another guest.

Thank you for your review, it helps us to make the place better for all travelers!

Lovely, charming and great location

  • 5 of 5
Our group was on a botanical tour and after a very long day up from San Diego we were absolutely delighted with our two cottages, Butterfly and Ladybug. They are beautifully maintained, inside and out and have all the amenities you would want in a home-like accommodation.
The group of us are members of APLD, the Association of Professional Landscape Designers and all of us thought the garden was beautifully executed. I would like to say that the number of people the cottages sleep as describes in the listing is for families and/or really close friends. As we were all single, the two cottages slept 6 people with a bit of room sharing. However, the description on the listing is accurate so we were prepared from the outset.
The cottages are in a quiet neighborhood, but not far from any type of shopping you need: grocery (Whole Foods, Albertson's) pharmacy, clothing, etc. We would definitely, absolutely, positively stay there again.

The house was perfect!

  • 5 of 5
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...

Delightful cottage

  • 5 of 5
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.
