Wer vorhat in Santa Barbara zu übernachten, sollte dies unbedingt bei Kelly und Michael tun. Man wohnt in einem eigenen kleinen Haus, das (über)perfekt eingerichtet und ausgestattet (website hidden) fehlt an nichts, die beiden haben an die kleinsten Kleinigkeiten gedacht! Ob das jetzt eine Hausapotheke oder ein Nagelzwicker ist, alles ist da! Auch der Kühlschrank wird für die Gäste gefüllt. Und das alles ist im Preis inbegriffen. Sogar Fahrräder stehen (website hidden)ßerdem gibt es einen kleiner lauschiger Platz im Gäste-Garten inkl. Wärmelampe für kühlere Abende, mit eigenem Jacuzzi und einem offenen Kamin. Wie gesagt: Das kann man nicht mehr topen!!! Wir werden wiederkommen und freuen uns schon heute darauf!
My husband and I are traveling many moths per year and we have seen so many different hotels and B&B's… but THiS stay in Santa Barbara with Kelly & Michael was one of the greatest, we ever had!!! The house, the room, the garden, the jacuzzi, the fire-place, the equipment, … perfect, perfect, perfect! Just beautiful! We will come back!!!
I stayed at Kelly & Michael's with my husband for 3 nights. We have been using Airbnb for years and this was our best stay by far.
The property is very well located, walking distance to pretty much everywhere - you'll be able to enjoy beautiful SB on foot if you so wish.
The studio is great - the hosts have dedicated a lot of care and attention to making the guest experience a luxurious and relaxing one. The kitchen is fully equipped with wine, beer, water, snacks and lovely fruit. The bathroom had all the amenities you'd expect to find in a hotel, with shampoo, conditioner, mouth wash and even make up removing wipes, which are seldom available in luxury / boutique hotels. The hosts also left an iPad for our use during our stay, which was a nice touch.
We didn't use the outdoor spa but it looked really nice and cozy.
Kelly and Michael are great hosts and offer their guests a fabulous stay - we'd recommend their place to anyone visiting SB. The only drawback for us is that they've raised the bar really high and it'll be hard for other properties to match the standards of their studio and service provided!
My partner Matt and I cold not have been happier with Kelly & Michael's place. We were in town for a wedding and the studio was located very near downtown, which made to-and-from wedding travel very easy. The space is beautiful and has everything you could ask for. They even provided wine and cheese!
We would definitely recommend the place to anyone traveling to Santa Barbara looking for a convenient, romantic place to stay.
What a luxurious, peaceful and fun stay! Raving to all my friends about this find- and we didn't even have a chance to enjoy the spa, or the beach cruisers! I would have liked to have stayed a week and not just one evening. Every detail has been thought of, and every touch, from the fresh flowers to emergency toiletries, made this an incredible experience. We would stay again, without a doubt.
5 stars are not sufficient to rate our experience. It's worth a trip to Santa Barbara just to stay in this unit and experience the incredible service Kelly and Michael provide to their guests.
Michael & Kelly were great, easy communication. Their place was fantastic and provided a great place to stay that was so close to the best of Santa Barbara. Beautiful room, clean, well taken care of and luxurious. We would definitely stay again and work with Michael and Kelly.
We had an incredible experience with Michael and Kelly. A couple of key things:
(a) Michael and Kelly are exceptionally prompt in communication. From the moment we reserved the room, to the day we arrived, they made themselves available and provided exceptionally quick responses.
(b) The suite is better than it appears in the pictures. The suite includes this flat-panel TV which was great... House of Cards just released their second season on Netflix, and it was perfect, because the TV actually has Netflix built in. But honestly, Santa Barbara is so beautiful that hopefully you don't spend too much time in your room anyway.
(c) Michael and Kelly were able to accomodate our special requests. One of the best features of this property is the outdoor Roman Spa... which again is much better in person than in the pictures. Anyway, my wife observes hijab, so we needed to location to be a titch more private than it already was. Michael and Kelly went above and beyond to accomodate our request. And it really meant the world.
Overall, our experience was great. I could go on an on... about how the Coffee maker was perfect for morning coffees, about how the bikes (which have gears) are perfect for the hilly Santa Barbara roads, or how the iPad in the room was perfect for browsing Yelp and finding delivery.
I am excited for the next time I'm in Santa Barbara... and a big part is because of this experience.
Truly the heart of Santa Barbara. Everything is in reach from the beaches to the restaurants, theaters and live theater, the mission, the mountains.
The suite was perfection personified. Always fresh flowers in the room and the tiled hot tub the deepest I've been in.
I'd like to give Kelly and Michael credit for the perfect weather, which was on a par with the rest of their perfect services.
I highly recommend this stop on any vacation.
Wow, what an escape! Kelly and Michael have created an elegant yet relaxing departure from whatever doldrums you happen to find yourself in. Their keen eye for style is surpassed only by the inviting warmth that they've cultivated so thoughtfully. Do yourself a favor and book your next getaway with Kelly and Michael. We absolutely loved our time in Santa Barbara and plan to go back soon.
A secret California get-a-way is how i would describe it. Make sure you get Kelly to show you the studio or you'll miss out on all the secret luxuries (can anyone say courtyard hot tub??!!). We loved this place and would certainly stay again. A must stay for anyone driving down the California 101 FWY.
