STYLISH COTTAGE RETREAT BY THE SEA IN CARPINTERIA

Carpinteria House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-5)

This charming and stylish, beautifully refurbished cottage is 1.5 blocks from Carpinteria State Beach, 1 block from Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Park and a few blocks to the heart of town. Included bikes, beach chairs, beach wagon, and cooler all make a fun-filled day at the beach effortless. When you return, rinse off the salt and sand in the warmth of the outdoor shower.

We were honored to have our cottages (#248884 & #336069) chosen to fill the "Little Gem" category of Carpinteria Beautiful's annual Home and Garden Tour in April 2012. They were also featured in Carpinteria Magazine's winter 2010 edition.

The cottage features bamboo hardwood floors, tasteful furnishings, central heat, ceiling fans in the bedrooms, and all the comforts of home. Beautiful, original paintings by local artists adorn the walls. There is a bedroom with a queen bed and another with a bunk bed with a twin on top and full bed on the bottom. A lovely patio in the yard with an outdoor dining table is the perfect spot for a sunset dinner. The cottage is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. There is a fully upgraded kitchen with stone countertops and all new appliances, including a dishwasher, microwave and ice maker. You will also find a washer and dryer for your convenience. We offer a library of beach and summer themed DVD's and wireless internet at no additional charge. Games and books are in the cupboard for mellow days around the house.

The surrounding neighborhood is very peaceful and the neighbors are friendly. There are several antique shops and wonderful restaurants within walking distance, as well as nature trails and wonderful bird watching one short block away. Or, hop on the bikes and head to town! Thursday afternoons offer a fresh Farmers Market. The town of Santa Barbara is a short drive away and hosts a zoo, museums, shopping, golf, art events, botanical gardens, the Queen of the Missions, wine tasting and more! Stop in Summerland for great antiquing, then glamorous, celebrity-filled Montectio along the way.

Our cottage offers a charming place to stay while on your vacation. Make it your home-away-from-home!

Guestbook comments from the owner
(QUOTE FROM EMAIL TO OWNER) Thank you for helping us to arrange this vacation. The house was beautiful. There were so many little touches that made our stay special.

I have recommended your services to three of my friends so far. Do you have any availability in your house again this summer?



Thanks again,

My husband and I bought 2 neglected, unloved cottages on one lot one 1/2 blocks from the beach. We expertly and extensively refurbished them throughout, upgrading EVERYTHING and making them very livable and lovely. They are now complete and we are ready to share them with people that will appreciate the fine quality of our charming cottages.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Carpinteria is a charming town. The beach is amazing and there are many other local activities and good restaurants. We live in nearby Santa Barbara.

Beach walks, dinner on the patio, entertaining friends and family, bird watching at Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Park which is 1 short block away, days at the beach with the kids, watching them swim out to the platforms with all of the other kids.

Best Carpinteria Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in the Carpinteria beach area three times. This was our best experience. 1. It is a separate unit not part of an apartment house where the permanent residents sometimes resent vacationers. 2. It is close to the beach but not too close so you don't have to deal with a continual parade of beach-goers who also take up any available parking space. We walked everywhere and enjoyed Linden Ave. the commercial center of old Carpinteria. 3. They have included equipment for use such as bicycles and boogie boards - had not seen this before. 4. Kathy wrote a comprehensive guide to the community, restaurants and local attractions. We particularly enjoyed her honest restaurant reviews. Our children have insisted that we return and we plan to do so.

Family Time

  • 5 of 5
My husband and two kids, ages 21 & 19 stayed for a week at Holly House. We were long over due a family vacation and had decided to take our kids to the beach town that we lived in while my husband attended college in Santa Barbara, 28 years ago. It was more than we expected. The beach was so close and it was so nice to have the wagon to load everything into. We enjoyed BBQ at night and sitting outside on the patio. The house was perfect, we have already started to plan our trip for next year. As we were driving away we all said "That was the best vacation ever and the house was perfect."
Thank you Kathy for sharing you home with us.

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
I was delighted with Holly House. I was in need of some R & R and this property and location gave me just what I asked for. The cottage was well appointed, perfect size. Close to beaches, town, shopping, restaurants etc. Riding the bikes to town was convenient. I absolutely loved Holly House. The owners are great and easy to work with. Can't wait to come back.

This was our third visit to the cottage. We love it here. I am an avid VRBO user and this place does not disappoint. It is well stocked and very close to the beach and everything else in Carpenteria. We will be back. The owner Kathy is very easy to deal with. I highly recommend this rental. Five Stars!!!!!!

One thing leads to another......

  • 5 of 5
I rented this incredibly well equipped cottage by the sea with the intent of experiencing time with family and friend, quiet times, exploration, beach time and found all that I wanted and so much more. The owners were very communicative, cooperative and thoughtful. The cottage is located in a such a great place in Carp - close to shopping/restaurants and the beach, but still "far enough" to have your own privacy! The decor and artwork in the home inspired me to contact one of the artists - and I am now a proud owner of 2 pieces of art by Jeremy Harper: http://jeremy-harper.com/.
This adorable bungalow brought me much happiness and inner peace - so much so, I will be moving to and living in the amazing town of Carpinteria!
