Carpinteria House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
Step onto the sand from the large ocean-facing deck of this 3 bedroom, 2 bath family beach house. Located just 10 miles south of Santa Barbara, CA in the popular resort community of Carpinteria, this house sits on the 'World's Safest Beach' sheltered by the beautiful Santa Barbara Channel Islands. Looking out the back, one views the newly developed Salt Marsh Reserve with its 230 acres of water wildlife with the backdrop of the Santa Ynez Mountains. The beach offers safe swimming, sand castle building, surf fishing, seashell collecting, and long walks to view sea lions lounging on the rocks and dolphins playing beyond the surf.
The town of Carpinteria, founded in 1863, is noted for its friendliness, small town charm and the agricultural production of avocados, lemons, and flowers. The downtown area is within easy walking distance from the beach and offers a variety of antique, clothing, and specialty shops, restaurants, grocery stores and a movie theater. Points of interest include the historical museum, the world's largest Torrey Pine tree, the Carpinteria Tar Pits where the Chumash built their canoes as well as the famous 'cook your own steak' Palms restaurant and a community swimming pool. Excellent surfing is located only 5 minutes away by car. Small boats can be launched nearby to access ocean fishing. Nearby Santa Barbara offers charter boats for deep sea fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving or simply viewing the coastline. The airport is located only 30 minutes away in Santa Barbara, and the Amtrak train makes several stops daily in Carpinteria.
