Kelly and Michael are so thoughtful ! They run this place like a pro! Most of the times, pictures tend to be better than the real place , but their place is definitely gave us a pleasant surprise upon opening the door ... And then one surprise after another , we kept finding more and more surprises , good surprises ... From the wine on the counter to the good juices and yogurt in the fridge, from the outdoor spa and bikes to toiletries , from the iPad equipped with pandora to ... A massage bed!! A luxury resort feel and experience indeed....and the price value ratio is outstanding ! Also like the digital lock , save the hassle to have a physical key , safer too...will be back when going to SB again and recommend to friends :)
My fiance and I found Michael & Kelly's studio online and instantly new it would be amazing for our wedding weekend. The property was SO gorgeous, and the extras that were provided (bottles of water (a lot!), wine, snacks, toiletries) were unexpected and immensely appreciated. Towels were provided for the beautiful sauna out back, as well as warm robes. We didn't get a chance to ride the bicycles that were provided, but think that was a very cool aspect. We brought our parents and best mates to see the place, and they too were impressed. Most of all, Michael and Kelly were amazing hosts. They checked in to see how our stay was and if we needed anything extra...of course we couldn't think of a thing. We will definitely be coming back!! Thank you Michael and Kelly for making our wedding stay the best ever. :) Lauren and Rudy, the newlyweds
P E R F E C T I O N!!! Simply the best & most beautiful studio with every detail covered on top a having a slice of a water view!!

Less than a block from State Street & 1 mile to the Beach & the best shopping and restaurants! An absolutely A++ experience! We cannot wait to return!! Thank you Michael & Kelly for sharing your gorgeous home!! See you again soon!
This is a beautiful place in a quiet and safe neighborhood in a lovely city. Our hosts were very attentive answering all our questions immediately. Michael greeted us warmly and had flowers at the entrance. We found wine, food, and a wonderful bed as well as tasteful decor and a large room with sitting area and kitchenette.
Michael and Kelly are extremely accommodating hosts and from the moment we arrived on the property we were just blown away. The provided amenities from bottled water, juice and wine to the bathroom toiletries were wonderful and even better than those found in a hotel! The hosts are great communicators and really made us feel welcome during our stay. We look forward to coming back to visit on our next trip to Santa Barbara!
Kelly and Michael's home was amazing! It was one of the best Air BnB experiences I've had to date and I would love to stay on my next trip to Santa Barbara!
From the moment you arrive you are spellbound by the beauty of this place. Although we sadly never got to meet Kelly and Michael their kindness and charm shone through the architecture of their wonderful house. Our studio was so pretty - the floor, the painting, the bed! Everything you needed was there and more, Kelly and Michael are so very generous. We felt totally at home and were only sad that we were on such a flying visit. Next visit we will make time in our schedule to stay longer.
