Kelly & Michael
First off, my wife and I would to thank Michael & Kelly for sharing there wonderful guest home and being such great hosts. We reserved 3 nights in celebration of our 2 year wedding anniversary, and to we could not have been more happier to stay in this gem. The studio is immaculate in every fashion, from the luxurious bedding and comfy seating, to the glorious Spanish style decor. The studio has plenty of modern features, such as the Keurig coffee machine, pull out double door Viking fridge, Apple iPad and Sona speaker.Our hosts also kindly provided us with plenty of snacks, water, beer and wine! You will not find this type of pampering anywhere in Santa Barbara at such a reasonable price. The cherry on top was the outdoor patio, with a spa hot tub and fireplace.
We were truly in heaven and honored to stay at there beautiful home which one couple described as"magical. We would have to agree, this place is truly one of a kind!
Michael and Kelly run this villa like PRO's.
Clean, comfortable and cozy. I've stayed at many Starwood and Marriott hotels and have never felt like a queen until we have stayed here....me a queen and him a king.
Spent part one of our honeymoon in Carmel, CA and part two of our honeymoon here in Santa Barbara. Nothing compares to this exquisite venue-villa. Michael and Kelly were both very informative, helpful and gave great suggestions on places to eat and things to see and do! Michael suggest the Four Seasons for brunch, and that we did. We spent three hours taking in the views of the ocean, feasting on amazing food and enjoying mimosas and then some. Life is about the little things, about being in the moment and living in the present.
That we did, and life's simple "details"......
The towel arrangements, crisp-clean linens, and an assortment of edible treats, to list a few......everything we needed, we had....
The bikes were very convenient, short ride to the rose garden and the Santa Barbara Mission.....
Looking forward to our next stay with these two.
I assure you with a "high occupancy rate" you will not be disappointed....
Two thumbs up, and of we could give more, we would!
Thank you both for making our honeymoon memorable, and romantic in many ways, we will always remember, thankfully we have a NIKON to capture those perfect details that make it easier to remember.....compliments of Michael for the photos!
Until next time, "Cheers" to you both.
Kelly and Michael were the most gracious hosts. During the weeks leading up to our stay, they sent us tons of information that proved extremely valuable about the area. This included restaurants and wine tasting rooms. Michael happily met us upon our late arrival at 9pm! He showed us around the property and recommended several late-night restaurants. He even returned the next day to show us the items he couldn't show in the dark the night before. They were available 24 hours a day throughout our stay! They even sent us an e-card the day after our departure. I cannot say enough wonderful things about their immaculate, custom property - or them as hosts. My wife and I will definitely stay here the very next time we are in SB.
I cannot even begin to thank Michael and Kelly enough for the wonderful experience we had in their studio. The space was even more beautiful than the pictures. The hosts did so many extra special touches from the day of booking through our departure. They even checked in on us following our arrival as well to ensure that we had all we needed and that we had a good nights sleep. Everything was just perfect. I highly recommend staying at this location and look forward to returning to their studio again for another relaxing and enjoyable visit in the very near future.
Thank you so much Michael and Kelly!!!!
If you are looking for a place to stay in Santa barbara.. This is the place to stay! Kelly and Michaels home is absolutely beautiful. We honestly couldn't get enough of how beautifully it was furnished and designed. The area is great, it's very peaceful and was only about a 5 minute drive to the marina and the restaurant toma. The patio outside is beautiful and is great to just relax. For the price you get so much more.. We were provided snacks, wine, coffee, breakfast, towels, bikes, bath goodies, and much more. I can't say enough about this place. We loved every minute of it. Kelly and Michael are wonderful hosts and we absolutely cannot wait to come back again!
An amazing find near the heart of downtown Santa Barbara (about 1.2 mile walk/bike/drive). The room was 'out of this world' tasteful, clean, comfortable, quiet. Bath and shower was equivalent quality wise to a recent 4 Season's stay. With the room comes two free bikes. Highlight for us was the private backyard that featured the most amazing hot tub (custom tile in-ground spa is a better description) and the blazing outdoor fireplace. We used both each night we were there. Another unique feature is that the hosts actually fully stock a snack cabinet with a full variety of goodies, plus stock the Viking frig with beer, wine, water, cheese... - all included in the room rate. An iPad comes with the room where you can play your choice of Pandora tunes. The only thing that I didn't care for was that we had to leave after 3 fantastic days. Thanks, Michael & Kelly!
