The setting that awaits you is quiet, quaint, and peaceful and is surrounded by a variety of mature trees, colorful flowerbeds, lush landscaping and all enclosed by a beautiful new white picket fence with privacy sections with lattice trim. Meandering brick pathways take you through the gardens where butterflies rest on flower pedals and the romantic sound of fountains fill the air.

'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

Timm is the owner. 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 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.

We were disappointed that some of the amenities were not functioning such as the air, spa etc.
Considering the high rental fees, the place needs some simple updates to be more inviting. Furniture is stained,
dingy and uncomfortable. Bedding, linens and towels need replacing and a few nice touches like soap, shampoo and coffee would be welcomed. The yard not being fenced does not lend itself to dog owners especially because of the fictious dog living across the street. I also feel the cleaning fee is extreme especially when it looked like the carpet had not even been vacuumed on arrival.
Most adorable and comfortable place to stay!!
Immaculate, beautiful little house with every eminity you can think of. Decorated so beautifully. The gardens are pure Zen and the owner is more than efficient and really friendly. We will definitely be back soon!! Thank you for letting us stay here while we get married in Santa Barbara! It made our special day that much more memorable!!
Adorable cottage in a great location
The Butterfly Cottage was wonderful! It was perfect for our group of 6, and the location is generally a quick car ride to the beach and downtown. The only thing I would suggest is to bring an air mattress. The sofa bed was very uncomfortable and the mattress was paper thin. Otherwise, the cottage was stocked with essentials and is a great stay for anyone looking to visit Santa Barbara!
Great little place in a quiet location
My husband and I spent 3 weeks here in February. This home is in a good location, just a short drive to downtown and the beaches. Very close to 101 so you can be on your way to wine country. We had no issues during our stay.
We had a very nice stay here for a week over Thanksgiving. The owner was very accommodating and provided me an additional table so we could have a family dinner. Very good neighborhood...we even walked to the stores!
Charming Cottage nestled in Santa Barbara, gave us the feeling of being a local.
We had an at home feeling spending our family time while on vacation. The Cottage is very charming, we all enjoyed the green, fresh, whimsical landscape. We even had breakfast and coffee at the from patio. The kitchen was well stocked, just bring the food. Nice new washer and dryer in the cool little screened in patio - great when returning from the beach. Thank you for providing the lovely cottage to us. We were very comfortable.
