The apt was perfectly appointed for my stay while on business in SB. Michael's place is situated close to the beach and plenty of options for groceries and coffee.
I really appreciated all the attention to detail in the furnishings, amenities and instructions. I felt right at home, thank you!
He gave very detailed instructions which helped getting into the apartment. The apartment had an incredible ocean view and was located a 5 minute drive or Uber/Lyft ride from downtown and all the restaurants and shopping.
Thank you for the great view Michael! Downtown is very close. If staying for a weekend it is a quiet place to sleep.
My experience in Santa Barbara this past weekend was very memorable thanks to Michael's adorable apartment. My first day there was rainy and gloomy but the moment I walked in, I was happy and impressed by how cute and CLEAN the apartment was. The welcome note and goodies that Michael left on the table for us helped as well.
Since Michael keeps his office locked, the whole apartment is basically a bedroom with the most beautiful canopy bed. Nonetheless, the kitchen is very spacious and well stocked with things to cook with.
Something else that was great about staying at Michael’s place is that he left very clear instructions on how thing worked (coffee maker, water filter, wifi, etc) and even attached a very detailed map of Santa Barbara where he included great places to visit.
The neighborhood was great! The apartment complex is RIGHT behind an Albertsons, Starbucks, Taco Bell, McDonalds, 711 and many other places where you could pick up what you need. The view from the apartment was obviously spectacular (the two other days that I stayed there were bright and warm ) The only negative part of the location is that the noise level was a bit high at times which makes sense since so many apartments are near each other.
Would I stay at Michael’s apartment again? DEFINITELY.
Michael wasn't able to meet me but he left excellent instructions for getting in and everything went well. He left a little treat and a note. The view is beautiful The room worked out great for me. Everything was very clean. It was smaller than I expected but just right for my needs. The bed was very comfortable The towels were very soft and fluffy
Michael was an extraordinarily thoughtful and considerate host! He gave us a guide to the city and a few welcome treats to make our stay just a little more welcome. The view is truly as it looks in the picture, and the accommodations were more than comfortable. This place is perfect as a weekend getaway, and Michael is wonderful as an ambassador to SB!
You bet --I'm so glad you had a great time in SB --now you know why I love it here so much :)
Michael and Susan were like a breeze through our home and lives. They were here overnight to be sure to get into line very early the next day for a camping spot at WorldFest. All the communications were fine and easy. They were very easy guests. Maybe we'll get to find out more about them some other time.
We actually did find a great spot to camp at the Worldfest --it was awesome with lots of pine tree shade --thank you again for being such gracious hosts :)
Michael and Jacky were wonderful guests. We talked over Thai food dinner for a long time. Very lively, interesting conversations. Super great guests. I think we'll be friends for a long time. Loved hosting them!
Michael and Jacky were the most wonderful guests, polite friendly, commuicative... just a pleasure to have. I enjoyed meeting them both.
Michael and Jacky were lovely to host. They were very communicative pre-arrival; were great to speak with throughout their stay and were a pleasure to host all around. They spent a lot of time walking around NYC and sampling the best pizza in the city. I know I am biased but I do think they enjoyed the pizza in my neighborhood of East Harlem the most ;-) In other words, I look forward to our next encounter.
Michael was extremely polite, friendly and easy to have in our home. We enjoyed hosting him very much! We've actually become friends with Michael and his girlfriend. One of the nice perks of air B&B - meeting interesting new people who've traveled the world and done all kinds of interesting things! I'd recommend him as a guest to anyone in this network.
Michael was a wonderful guest. He is kind and considerate to all the other guests and very helpful. Michael has a very interesting life which he shared easily. We all enjoyed his presence over his long stay. He brought an absolutely fabulous friend who was a very positive addition to our SB family also.
