Next time, we'll bring our passports because staying here is just like being in a Villa in Italy. It's incredible, it's totally private and it's in the perfect location. Michael and Kelly have gone above and beyond to make sure every detail makes you feel welcome and comfortable. This has just become our go-to place every time we're in Santa Barbara.
We didn't get to meet Michael, unfortunately, as we would have loved to say a big thank you to him in person for creating such a unique place. Everything was to the highest possible standard. Lovely neighbourhood, absolutely beautiful villa with abundant supply of everything necessary, relaxing backyard with a spa and the list goes on. Communication was excellent from the minute we booked the place and we felt very welcome. Highly recommended!
This was our first time using AirBnB and I'm afraid no other rental will live up to this one! Booking was incredibly easy and Michael was quick to provide lots of detailed information and was very pleasant. The room was as nice as a 5 star hotel, beautiful furnishings and finishes. It was in a great location. The hot tub and outdoor lounge area were amazing. It was all around a relaxing and enjoyable place to stay from start to finish!
Everything was easy with Michel. He was in constant contact and made it very easy to get to his house and check in, even though we did not meet him in person! It still felt like we knew him!
The place was incredible! Easily the nicest place we have stayed. The room was amazingly decorated, with music playing as we entered. Everything was there that we could have asked for, and more. Chocolates on the bed, a stocked fridge, red and white wine, fruit, bagels, a coffee machine...the list is endless! The thoughtfulness out into this place is amazing!
The bed was incredibly comfortable and the bathroom impeccable!
The location is perfect too! With easy parking down town state street to all the shops is a 10-15 min walk!
We will absolute stay here again! It was the best air bnb so far!
We rented this Villa for our wedding weekend in Santa Barbara. It was perfect in every way. Michael and Kelly have thought of every detail. We would highly recommend a stay here.
My husband and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary in Santa Barbara and we are both beyond thrilled that we chose to stay in Michael and Kelly's studio. The space is beautiful a lovely bouquet awaited us in the front entry. Also, all of the extras provided (wine, snacks, bottled water, ect....) where much appreciated. We both highly recommend this property for anyone traveling to SB.
