The place was as described and quite wonderful. The bed was comfy, the decor beautiful, and the setting pleasant. The place really is beautiful -- like something out of Tuscany. The hosts did a wonderful job of making us feel at home -- texting us after booking and in the week preceding our visit to make sure we were set, texting us right after we arrived to make sure we got in ok, checking in once more to make sure everything was going well.
The hosts provided complimentary snacks, wine, beer, and drinks for us, which was a really nice touch. The WiFi worked well, and there was an iPad there for our use. We had our own devices, but it would be nice if we had forgotten them. The spa was relaxing, as well.
As for location, the place is at the very top of the hill on State Street, about 1.5 miles into the middle of town. It was a long walk (which we didn't mind), and the bikes are handy for a quicker trip, but remember you have the hill to contend with on the way back when you are tasting wine. It was only a $5 Uber fare to get in and out of town otherwise, and a super quick trip.
We would definitely stay with Michael and Kelly again -- it was a great little getaway in a beautiful home for us!
Michael and Kelly have created a gorgeous, welcoming space for guests. Their advance communications were detailed and warm. No wonder we couldn't wait to arrive, and when we did, wow, we knew that we had chosen exactly the right place for our Santa Barbara visit. The room was filled with ambience and first-class amenities, from the Sonos music system, to complementary wine and food, to bikes, spa, and cozy balcony. The location was perfect - close to the freeway, downtown, everywhere we wanted to go. Now the place we want to go is back to this wonderful Airbnb destination!
It's hard to describe just how perfect this place was. This felt more like a 5 star hotel than an AirBnB, mostly because Michael and Kelly had thought of every last detail to make our stay perfect. The room is stunning-- very spacious and comfortable. There was a gorgeous flower arrangement when we walked in, as well as wine, snacks and bottled water for us (thanks guys!). There were thoughtful touches everywhere-- an iPad for guest use, bikes, a flatscreen tv with Netflix, toiletries in that bathroom as well as a hairdryer. But my favorite thing was probably the incredibly comfortable bed, which has a remote so you can adjust the angle of the head and the foot. I really can't say enough about how wonderful our whole trip was. It was easily my best AirBnB experience so far, and I can't wait to visit again! If you have an opportunity to stay here, you should.
We had such a wonderful stay here! Kelly and Michael are delightful hosts. They were so easy to coordinate with, and Their studio is even better than described -- beautiful, clean, and stocked with everything we could've wanted (snacks, wine, bikes -- the works!). We give this place a perfect 10. Can't wait to return!
My boyfriend and I truly enjoyed our stay and Michael and Kelly's. It was the perfect place for our romantic getaway on our anniversary. The decor was spectacular, with a warmth and romantic feel I loved, even providing little necessities we might have needed for our stay. The finishes are top notch, and there's even an outdoor patio with hot tub for your use. And the bed, oh my goodness that bed, I could've slept in that bed for days and never left. I won't ruin the surprise but I'm sure you would love it too. All in all, great place to stay with hosts that stay in constant communication to make sure you are enjoying your stay.
If you're going to Santa Barbara, staying here is a must! The place was amazing. Beautifully decorated, with great attention to detail. We truly felt at home. The hot tub and outside fire place were great additions. If you're looking for a romantic getaway or just want to relax and take a weekend away, this is definitely the place to stay. We highly recommend it and look forward to staying here again in the near future.
As many previous guests have commented, our experience was equally wonderful. We were unable to meet the hosts due to their work commitments, however we communicated via mobile and phone calls. As a new arrival, we of course had a few basic questions that we needed answering, and despite no personal contact, we were certainly well taken care of with all questions answered by phone and mobile.
The studio is beautifully appointed with taste and class. Likewise the complimentary provisions were a treat and a nice touch.
