Kelly & Michael
We felt incredibly welcomed by Kelly & Michael ! Not only did they communicate with us ahead of time and very thoroughly, but when we arrived the room was filled with all kinds of welcome treats! Fresh flowers, a little frig of goodies for us to nibble, music was playing in our room, a Santa Barbara newspaper. We were blown away by the amount of care and beauty that was all around us! We also had so much fun using the beach cruiser bikes and riding down to the ocean and along a bike trail there. Fabulous time! Fabulous place! Fabulous hosts!
Kelly and Michael went above and beyond to accommodate our stay. They not only had an absolutely beautiful place, but they left no detail spared in making us feel comfortable. They provided bathrobes, snacks, bikes to use, any bathroom product, a hot tub, laundry--the works! It was 100 times better than staying in a hotel. It almost felt like staying in a Tuscan villa. I would absolutely recommend staying at Kelly and Michael's. It was an absolute pleasure.
We had an amazing experience! Kelly and Michael are dream hosts. They have thought of every detail to make a guest feel comfortable. We highly recommend their Santa Barbara studio.
We went to Santa Barbara for our babymoon and it was a wonderful and very memorable experience. Prior to arriving, Michael did a fantastic job to ensure we were going to settle in just right. The room was spectacular, and I must say the technology in that room is very impressive! From the bed that massages you (that's my first), to the T.V., to our very own Ipad that's already loaded with music. Really appreciated the anticipatory gestures that were shown during our stay, wonderful hospitality. I would stay here again without a doubt. Thanks for a extraordinary stay that I know for a fact I would not have experienced even at a hotel.
Kelly & Michael's studio was a great find. Significantly cheaper than comparable hotel rooms and just as private. We had a rental car and chose to drive around town which worked well since the studio was just a bit too far to make downtown within walking distance. With having been on the road for nearly a week by the time we reached Kelly & Michael's, the food amenities they provided were much appreciated. It was also great to be able to borrow beach towels so we didn't have to break out our own and pack them wet for the remainder of the trip. With one more day in town, we definitely would have tried out the bicycles and helmets available. Overall, a great find in Santa Barbara!
Our experience was incredible. The place was as described and Kelly and Michael were incredibly helpful in answering all questions we had. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a superb stay in Santa Barbara. The quality was far superior than that of even a 4-star hotel.
Michael and kelly far surpassed our expectations for the luxury suite! Unfortunately we were not able to meet kelly as he was away on business, but Michael treated us like royalty through our stay. The suite was perfectly located within biking and walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife! Michael and kelly left no detail out about the luxury of the suite! Complimentary treats were a great touch as well! Best air b n b experience yet!
