The most amazing house ever, it is a real gem! We had a great time at this lovely place.
Thank you so much Michael & Kelly for the hospitality and amazing stay!
Michael and Kelly have outdone themselves - this was a stellar stay for us, and I was spoiled for my first Airbnb experience. Michael and Kelly have thought of everything and they were so helpful... far more than you would get in any hotel, and it was just so peaceful. Couldn't recommend this more - and we'll definitely be back!
Wow! What an amazing way to start our honeymoon. This place is absolutely beautiful and Michael and Kelly are top notch hosts. They thought of everything- fresh flowers, sonos sounds system, comfy bed, killer tub, peaceful outside area to have dinner... we even took advantage of the perfume and cologne selection they provided. Not to mention it was a perfect location! We spent a lot of time on State Street and visited the Mission that was only 5 minutes away. We will definitely be back to stay here and you should too! Thanks for the wonderful time.
This was the. Most. Amazing. House. ! I can not stress enough how welcoming Michael & kelly are. Not only are they amazing host' but they truly do think of everything to make your stay with them not just a stay but a warm experience. I can not wait for summer to find an excuse to go back here! Thank you so much Michael & kelly for the hospitality and amazing stay!
We had an amazing time staying in the unit! It is in a beautiful and safe part of SB. The pictures show the place perfectly! They had wonderful snacks and wine that made it feel like our own private bed and breakfast. They fixed the very minor problem we had very quickly. The area is very hilly so if you want to ride bikes I recommend bringing your own road or hybrid bike. Thanks Michael and Kelly!
There is nothing more Michael and Kelly can do to make you feel welcome. They provide a reference standard in the industry and are a model for any other airbnb host.
By far the best experience I have had with accommodation. Michael and Kelly were so great with constant contact - and incredibly sweet and helpful when we arrived late at night. The studio has to be seen to be believed, it is absolutely incredible. My fiancé and I were devastated that we'd only booked 1 night - namely because we wanted to stay at the studio!! If you're in Santa Barbara you'd be silly to stay anywhere else!!!
