We feel so lucky to have found this wonderful gem! All of the thoughtful details, for instance, the beautiful fresh flowers, and orchids, were beyond our expectations! We appreciated the impeccable style of the space, the attention to details, and the warm hospitality of the hosts. The space is not only beautiful, it is comfortable and fun. The location was great, too! We enjoyed being so close to State Street and taking walks in the neighborhood on the sidewalks.
We only wish we had a longer visit, to enjoy the hot tub, the bikes, and the outdoor fireplace and patio.
We can't wait to come back and we highly recommend this unit to everyone visiting the area.

What a wonderful OASIS!!! This place is a must! Michael and Kelly have thought of EVERYTHING. We had such a wonderful experience and can't wait to come back. If you want to be pampered stay here. You both are wonderful hosts.
Michael & Kelly were amazing hosts, and our first Airbnb experience could not have been any better. Their pied de terre is beautiful, safe and secure, and in a great location. Furthermore, there was a beautiful arrangement of fresh flowers (Michael is obviously a very gifted florist), and the mini bar was fully stocked with assorted coffees and teas, breakfast, chocolates, treats, and a bottle of wine! Even though we didn't get the chance to meet in person, Michael was very responsive via text. We had a wonderful time in Santa Barbara and we'll be sure to stay at Michael & Kelly's place again next time we're in town! Thanks again, Simona
Wow. I've stayed at dozens of Airbnbs, but I've never had hosts as great Michael and Kelly. From start to finish they went above and beyond to make an absolute fantastic experience. This alone would be enough for a positive review, but there is so much more.
The unit itself is also one of (if not THE) best I've stayed in. They've put together a very unique/stylish/luxurious feel that extends from every single detail, from the paintings (one of which shows/hides the TV) to the bathroom (for which they have included everything you could need, even cologne and perfume) to the kitchenette (oh yeah, if it wasn't enough they make sure it's filled with goodies for you too).
I couldn't speak more highly about our experience at this luxury studio, and would plan a trip to Santa Barbara just to stay at one of their units (and will).
This is a beautiful place to stay!! I highly recommend it for a romantic weekend or if you just want to get away to a luxurious spot. There was a gorgeous bathtub, it was a great location and there was a super comfortable bed.
Michael and Kelly did a really great job communicating and made everything so easy. They were so welcoming and everything was in perfect shape upon arrival. They paid attention to the small details from fresh flowers in the room to making healthy snacks available.
You couldn’t ask for a better play to stay in Santa Barbara. Thank you for everything!
Michael and Kelly prepared their European-feeling villa in amazing fashion. We spent the 4th night of our honeymoon in their beautiful suite and couldn't have been happier. From the bottle of wine and snacks, to the romantic setting of the hot tub and fire place, we LOVED our experience. We will be recommending them to any of our friends traveling to the area in the future! Thanks Michael and Kelly!!
Everything was perfect from the moment we walked in. The space is beautiful, very well decorated and private. We ventured SB on the bikes they provided, an excellent touch as you really don't need to drive anywhere! It was everything we were hoping for in our little getaway!
