Our family found this vacation spot by accident after spending fun summers in San Diego and wanting a place closer to home. A friend recommended Carpinteria. We tried it once and fell in love immediately. We spent a few seasons renting and finally decided we wanted to buy a place and make it our own.

Ruta Aras purchased this house in 2001

One of the nicest aspects about living in Carpinteria is that it is flat so walking is easy and biking is even better. There is also a cute little public trolley in town that takes you all around for 50 cents -- what a deal. I love the monthly Flea Market at the local Carpinteria Museum. My favorite purchases are antique jewelry and purses. They also have beautiful flowers and vintage housewares. The pizza at Giovanni's is the best anywhere and so is the local ice cream store on Linden. It's fun attending all the local activities hosted by the city. Small town charm is so hard to come by these days. And if you want a taste of the big city, then Santa Barbara is conveniently only 15 minutes north of Carp and wineries in the Santa Ynez family are an hour away. You have the peace and quiet of a small town but access to great museums, restaurants, theater and shops if you want it.

Our guests love surfing, swimming, kayaking, and fishing at the beach. Others prefer skateboarding at the park In Santa Barbara or renting tandem style bikes. Still others prefer rock climbing, hiking in the local mountains. Adventurous ones schedule boat trips for whale watching on the ocean or visiting the Channel Islands which leave from the Santa Barbara Harbor.

While at the Beach House the first thing you notice is that you are walking distance to the beach, the salt water marsh preserve and to downtown Linden Avenue. We take the big beach wagon in the garage and fill it up with chairs, cooler, umbrella, boogie boards and take off to the beach. Afterwards we return to take outdoor showers and enjoy the backyard for a barbecue but first cocktails on the upper balcony watching beautiful sunsets or taking in the gorgeous mountain views on the back side. Cooking on the antique stove in the big kitchen that seats eight is fun -- so is discovering treasures in the 'Sugar Shack' the original structure to the Beach House built by the settlers that came out to Carpinteria from the midwest. Sometimes we take the train to Santa Barbara, the depot is two blocks from our house.

Many out of state guests enjoy the fair weather the area has to offer during the off-season. When it's cold and snowy in Canada or elsewhere in the United States the gentle weather locally attracts tourist who enjoy off-season rates and no crowds.

GREAT VALUE FOR SUCH AN AWESOME SPACE

  • 5 of 5
We staged a family reunion in Carpinteria this summer and I rented this house for 1 week for my children to stay in (I already have a place nearby where I stayed with my wife).

There were six Adults and 2 Toddlers who stayed there. And if you compare the price of hotel accommodations anywhere near Carpinteria with the price of this place, it is already a clear winner even if the place was no better than a hotel. But it was so much better, it is hardly worth making a comparison.

Here are the things we enjoyed most. It is by no means a comprehensive list of amenities, but in the interest of not boring anyone, I will try to call out the highlights.

1. The condition of the property when we arrived - This place is spotless and well maintained.
2. Provisioning. - there was nothing we could have needed that was not already there, including 8 or 10 bicycles (I think that was the count, there were more than we needed, regardless) beach toys for the children, and an amazing beach wagon in the garage (which we used to tote two toddlers, their toys and our gear to the beach each day - there is even a cooler on the back where you can place things like sandwiches and sodas that you want to keep cool).
3. The grill in the back yard is in excellent condition and we used it almost every night, but in the house, there is also a gas range and a gas stove which we used in the mornings to make breakfast (there is no pot pan, or utensil you can imagine that is not already there, so you can cook like a gourmet if that is your desire).
4. The fire pit in the back yard which we used almost every night.
5. There is a very handy outdoor shower which we used to rinse the sand and salt off before entering the house each day. It was really nice to be able to use it for a quick rinse rather than having to queue up for a shower inside.
6. Upstairs, in a very comfortable sitting area that divides two of the bedrooms, there is a large TV with Cable and a nice selection of videos.
7. The downstairs, there is a game area with video games and another TV...
8. The house is within an easy 10 or 12 minute stroll from anything in downtown Carpinteria, and no more than 5 or 6 minutes (if you walk very slow to accommodate the toddlers...) from the beach.
9. It was very easy to work with Ruta (the owner) and the property management company she uses.

There really aren't enough nice things to say about this house.

GREAT BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed the weekend at this wonderful beach house. The location is perfect! A short walk to the beach and a short walk to town. We did not get in the car once. We rode bikes to breakfast, and walked to dinner. The house is very charming and full of anything you would need to make your stay enjoyable. The train tracks are behind the house, which might be a concern for some, but the trains did not bother us at all. I would recommend this house very highly.

A HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 4 of 5
This rental is like going to someone's home. It's nicely decorated and the kitchen is well stocked with many staples already there. There are ample dishes, glassware, serving pieces to make it easy to entertain. The owner was lovely when I talked to her.

The house is spotless and well maintained. It's a family oriented home.
The only negative for our stay was the noise of the train at night.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Arriving at this beach house is like arriving at a home away from home. Our family, spread out all over California, met at the beach house to enjoy time together, and we enjoyed every minute of it. The house, conveniently located just a few blocks from the beach (especially convenient for a family of self-proclaimed beach bums) evokes feelings of a fancy getaway in a very comfortable and cozy place. The house was furnished with everything a person visiting the beach could possibly want, from bikes to explore Carpinteria, a wagon to haul needed items to the beach, and even Goo Gone to get rid of tar from between your toes. We would have needed to spend far more than a weekend there to take advantage of all the house had to offer; as it was, we enjoyed a lazy weekend with lots of good food, drinks, and laughter while sprawled on the couches in the cozy upstairs living room. The house was a perfect, peaceful retreat, and we hope that we will get to stay here again someday!
