My wife and I spent two nights in this delightful apartment in Carpinteria during a trip up the California coast in September 2013. The very spacious one-bedroom unit, which is attached to the owners' home, is clean, quiet and well equipped, beautifully and recently remodeled and situated on a large gated lot with a pleasant patio, views of the mountains and a nice big lawn. The owners, Ted and Mary Anne, are friendly, welcoming, helpful hosts full of good information about area restaurants, outdoor activities and other attractions. The unit is close to beaches and restaurants and just a short drive from Santa Barbara via the nearby 101 freeway. It's a very nice place to stay short- or long-term - every amenity you might want. We recommend it highly for anyone looking for a place to stay in this scenic area.
