  • Better than the photos! This was the final leg of our holiday and couldn't have ended on a better note. Was brilliant.

  • Believe the hype! Mike & Kelly are awesome. My boyfriend & I stayed with them a few weeks ago & have since dubbed them 'Airbnb All Stars'. I hope you get the chance! It's even better than the pics. Awesome vibe & 5-Star hospitality!! What a treat. These guys are fantastic - friendly, easy to communicate with, & all around great hosts. Quality place & very peaceful, heartfelt vibe. Aside from gorgeous landscape, guest house, & pool area, they even thrown in a bunch of perks - chocolate, toiletries, fresh flowers, & music. The garden is great at sunset!! Please take them up on their restaurant suggestion - we were STOKED. As someone who travels alot & loves Airbnb, this stay was a real treat!! Cheers, Mike & Kelly - We can't wait to visit you again.

  • Our stay was amazing!

    Michael and Kelly were very open and welcoming and took the time to really share about the property and it's garden/yard - all of which are beautifully maintained.

    The studio was more than perfect - beautiful, comfortable, in a very convenient location and generously provisioned.

    We look forward to coming back very soon!

  • What a perfect place to stay!! There isn't enough room to talk about just how fabulous this place was. From the chocolates on the pillows to the SONNOS music when we walked in. The list goes on and on. Michael and Kelly truly thought of everything. We were only a short distance from town and could come back to relax in between. This vacation was top flight in huge part to the beautiful home we stayed in. It will be hard to stay anywhere else after this! Thank you both so much it was PERFECT!

  • If your planning to go to Santa Barbara this is a great place to stay! It's attached to a lovely property with a hot tub in back and it has a beautiful updated bathroom and great amenities. We especially loved that we had access to the bikes so that it was a quick ride to the downtown area. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

  • Kelly and Michael were welcoming and very accommodating. The space was absolutely perfect and included more amenities than I could list. There was nothing they didn't think of and as a quest we couldn't have felt more comfortable and relaxed. Beautiful space, wonderful hosts!!!

  • Kelly & Michael and their place should be used as a best practice guideline for airbnb hosts. Everything about it was perfect. My parents stayed there for a week after traveling around the world for 2 months, and it was by far their favorite place to stay. They were so comfortable here they slept in until 11:30am one morning!! It was immaculate inside and out. My parents are even going to redesign the outdoor area of their own home in Australia based on the outdoor area at Kelly & Michael's. Just superb.

  • My daughter and I arrived to this exquisite atelier, tucked away on a quiet, lovely street. We felt as though we were in a fabulous villa in Tuscany. The owners saw to every detail and made themselves totally available for any of our needs. The room was beautifully decorated and immaculate, with Ferre Roche chocolates on the pillow, wine and goodies. There was an amazing roman spa with an out door fireplace and a private out door shower! Two bikes were available for cruising around town. I wish I could of stayed a month!!! I highly recommend staying at this very private gem.

    June 2014
