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

'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

'Wonderful Cottage. Was a home away from home! Thanks for making our family vacation wonderful. What a relaxing weekend.

Thank you. Johnson Family

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

Had a lovely stay! Nice neighborhood away from the busy-ness of downtown. We enjoyed the garden and quiet patio. Would stay again.

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here and would love to come back again. The neighborhood was peaceful and having our dog there worked perfectly. We thought we were going to miss being right in the middle of town, but it turned out that we had such easy access to places like the Arroyo Dog Beach and avoided being stuck in rush hour traffic as we decided to drive up the coast. The cottage was very clean and well kept, a perfect getaway for our spring vacation. Thanks!

Dog friendly but dated and just for 2

  • 2 of 5

We rented this cottage between to other house rentals in Santa Barbara. We were desperate and needed a dog friendly place to stay for 9 days. The manager Cherise was very friendly and professional. The cottage has a fenced very dog friendly private yard, that was nice.It was really quiet until other "party guests" moved inn in the other cottage. The cottage is promoted for 4 and after we (2 adults, one child and a dog) moved inn we got a message that the sleeping sofa was broken and we had to use the airmadras. The pillows and blankets were old and full of mites-nothing for allergic people.

After one day the old fridge was full of ice and difficult to use. This place could be really nice with simple remodeling (remove the old carpet, use hard floors, change of pillows and blankets, buy a new fridge and cooking top and a new sleeping sofa). Until this is done I would advise guest to find another place to stay.

Very Good but could use a little Updating

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place to stay. It is small but bigger than a standard hotel room so that is nice. We liked the outdoor patio to go eat on and enjoy at night. Very quiet and great place for pets. It was very nice because we were at the beach all the time to have the washer and dryer. We also used the boogie boards, umbrella, and chairs that were available at the beach which made things very nice for our stay away from the cottage. We had an issue with a unworking fan the first day but it was solved. I would have given it 5 stars but it needs some blinds replaced and kitchen facet for me to give it 5 stars. But overall we would stay her again and would enjoy it again very much.

Nice neighborhood garage away from beach

  • 3 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed Santa Barbara; however next time would probably not stay in someone's garage property. The enclosed patio was nice, and we appreciated the beach chairs and umbrella. Getting on hands and knees for microwave and refrigerator was ridiculously awkward, one of the two range burners not functional, so impossible to make a real meal. Perhaps we are out-of-touch, but found accommodations lacking for the price. Cherise was very nice and prompt with requests.

Cute but a bit warned.

  • 2 of 5

We were really excited on arriving to Santa Barbara. Decided to take a family road trip from Los Angeles. It was just the two of us with our toddler. When we arrived , there wasn't anyone there to meet us, earlier in the week I got a e-mail from Charisse about instructions. OK? Instructions doesn't cover all aspects of the cottage. Street parking means the path parking off the property, there's no signs. The cottage is cute, but inside is smaller than expected, especially the bathroom. It's not new as it says on the website and only our toddler enjoyed it because the fixtures were her height. This cottage would work for people who like to stay in and relax, maybe cook in. You would definitely need a car because the property is a bit far from the rest of the highlights of Santa Barbara. It's more of a residential neighborhood. We're the type to go out and enjoy the beach and do activities around State Street. Maybe we'll just book a hotel next time, it's about the same price if not cheaper.
