'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 2007

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 2006

'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

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 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at the Hummingbird Cottage could not have been more perfect. We loved the quaint cottage, especially its beautiful gardens, the lovely front porch with rocking chairs and hammock, the well-equipped kitchen, and how sunny, airy, clean and fresh the house was. We will definitely be back.

Great space, but needs improvement

  • 3 of 5

We had a large group and the space fit our size well. We loved the houses and patio areas. However, both sofa beds were terrible, just as other reviewers said. I even emailed and asked specifically about them and was assured they had been updated. NOT! Don’t count on using the sofa beds at all. Three of our party slept poorly because of that. Kitchens not well equipped but we managed to cook alright.

very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We had 15 people staying here and it was very comfortable for us. Enjoyed the central patio where we could all congregate. The cleaning lady came too early on check out day and would not wait for us to vacate and was very rude. Otherwise a lovely weekend.

Beautiful cottages!!

  • 5 of 5

Great time there. The owner made it very easy to check in, get the keys, and enjoy the weekend. Plenty of space for sleeping with the pull out beds etc. We had a big group so it was nice that some of the couples could have privacy in the separate cottages. Great spot

Excellent Value

  • 3 of 5

These properties met our needs for a group of 10 for 5 days. The location is average, the accommodations are average, and the price was attractive. The properties are aging and are showing signs of needing some maintenance on deferred items. Several issues were noted during our stay that are contributing to a 3 star rating: leaking sink drain, sewage smell from the cover in the driveway, several uncomfortable beds, limited parking, insufficient trash and recycling can capacity for the commercial nature of these properties, the back deck is showing some advanced decay, the yellow jackets and wasps were a constant nuisance in the outdoor areas, and the spa is no longer operational.

We happened to stay on some of the warmer days of the year, and the portable fans were not sufficient to keep the temperatures comfortable.

On the other hand, the properties feature plenty of outdoor space, several propane barbecues, limited kitchen food preparation areas, and nice porches.

It's a great value for the money, but may not meet expectations for typical vacation home rentals.

Great getaway for our extended family

  • 4 of 5

Great venue for our extended family to have ample togetherness and equally ample privacy for each household. Note: no AC. Each cottage has a lovely garden. Cute non-tourist non-commercial neighborhood with lots of trees. With your car a quick hop to either downtown area or mission area. Property on septic, private streets not well maintained, (neither was a problem for us). Owner's rep very responsive and helpful before, during and after.

Nice clean property in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

It had everything we needed and it is well taken care of. It is a little dated in some areas, but that just makes it quaint. The only drawback was the sofa bed in the living room, It was very uncomfortable. I would stay there again.
