This review will come as no surprise to Kelley/Michael as we had great communication via text/online.
This listing has been on my wishlist for a long time. An opportunity finally came up for two nights pre Holiday and I took it. So happy I did too.
The home is over the top. Truly. If you know anything about the Four Seasons Biltmore or El Encanto Santa Barbara and are on that level of the marketplace, this is the Airbnb choice for you. It's an $800 a night experience masked as an Airbnb alternative, sans room service or spa.
As a busy host, this is an aspirational and inspiring home to me. I want this in my life!
Hope to stay again in the future. Thanks for hosting!
The space is absolutely beautiful. The architecture and decor is gorgeous. The mattress and bedding is very comfortable. It is in a great location- close to everything and in a really nice, quiet neighborhood. The entire property is landscaped so beautifully. Michael and Kelly are very welcoming and were super easy to communicate with throughout the entire process. So many amenities- they really think of everything! Highly recommend staying here!
What an exquisite property! And the hosts, Michael and Kelly, were perfectly courteous and helpful with anything we needed. The hosts have thought of everything you could possibly need while you stay at their meticulously clean and comfortable property. I will definitely be back. Book your stay with Michael and Kelly. You won't regret it!!
WOW! This place is everything you'll want and more. Every Airbnb host should follow these guys lead. Michael is a great communicator and make sure your stay is beyond wonderful. We had a lovely anniversary weekend at the studio and couldn't have imagined staying anywhere else. They provided snacks, wine, beer, coffee, fresh flowers...all the little details that go above and beyond. We soaked in the hot tub, read in the outdoor lounge area, rode the bikes they provide to a downtown restaurant for breakfast, and enjoyed walking the in the peaceful and quiet neighborhood. We will definitely stay here again! 5 stars.
Kelly and Michael are the best hosts. Everything is just so clearly laid out for you that you really don't have to think. We loved staying there. It was easy, so comfortable and so so nice. The courtyard, hot tub and outdoor shower really add that extra touch that make you never want to stay anywhere else. We absolutely loved it here.
Mike & Kelly's home was spectacular. Their attention to detail is inspiring. Once you walk in the door, the feeling of serenity overwhelms your senses. Their home is immaculate along with the grounds. The refrigerator was stocked with a bottle of wine, cheese, water, soda, which we usually never have had at other Airbnb.
Location was great. Easy parking on the street, close to downtown and beach.
Michael was a delight to talk with, he was happy to explain to us the wonderful history of their home
This will be our first reservation for our next trip back to Santa Barbara.
