Carpinteria House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This newly renovated beach house and separate cottage (optional to rent) is conveniently located in the seaside town of Carpinteria, one of California's best kept secrets. Carpinteria is home of the World's Safest Beach as well as being close enough to Santa Barbara to enjoy all it's culture and commerce but far enough away to maintain a sleepy beach town ambience. Downtown Carpinteria offers a variety of clothing boutiques, antique stores, salons, restaurants and surf shops. All these amenities line Linden Ave. within a 4-block span that is within walking distance of our beach cottage. This quaint home is located just off Linden Ave. on 8th St. and Yucca Lane right behind historic Hollyhock Cottage. This area offers over 25 restaurants with a diverse variety of California cuisine, all summarized in our Restaurant Guide complete with current menus and reviews. You never have to climb in your car to dine out as well as grocery shop. One of two area supermarkets is only a 2 minute walk away. Take advantage of the Thursday Farmer's Market that offers the coast's best fruits and vegetables. Also available at this afternoon market is a variety crafts, baked goods and beautiful plants and flowers. Of course, if you would rather dine in than out, our newly renovated house offers an ultra modern kitchen to prepare your meals as well as a wonderful covered patio to barbecue in and a newly landscaped backyard to lounge in. We also offer an outdoor shower with handheld sprayer to wash that sand off for those returning from the beach.

For those seeking surf and sand you are only 2 minutes away by car or 5 minutes away by foot to the beach. Ample parking is available as there are 3 public lots along the beach as well as plenty of street parking. Kayak and raft rentals are available at both Linden Ave. and Ashe Rd. locations. Public restrooms are available at those locations as well. A public pool is also available in central Carpinteria, right next to newly renovated tennis courts. For our golf enthusiasts there is a full service driving range located on the south end of Carpinteria Ave. Numerous public courses are available from Ventura all the way north of Santa Barbara. Most all courses are within a 40 min. drive of Carpinteria.

Biking enthusiast have access to the California Coastal Bike Route that runs through Carpinteria on its way to Santa Barbara on the north and Ventura on the south. Mountain bikers have access to numerous bike trails that course the hills throughout this coastal area. Hikers have a variety of trails to choose from that are up and down the coast. All these activities are outlined in our Recreational Guide available at the house. You can do as much or as little as you like in this comfortable home located conveniently to so many amenities of a great coastal beach town!

About Bill Barker

I am a retired dentist that is married to my wife, Denise, for over 30 years. We have loved coming to Carpinteria for the span of our marriage and the upbringing of our 3 children. We recently purchased this beach house and renovated it and we are excited to share it with you to enjoy Carpinteria and associated areas as we have.

Bill Barker purchased this house in 2008

Why Bill Barker chose Carpinteria

I've been vacationing in Carpinteria since the early 1970's. I fell in love with this town as a teenager and I have been coming back ever since. My family and I vacationed every summer here in the 1980's and we purchased our first vacation property in the mid 1990's. Since then we travel to Carpinteria from the central valley of California as often as we can. We purchased this beach house in August of 2008 and spent a year renovating it. We think it is a fantastic property strategically located in Carpinteria like few other summer rental properties. You rarely have to get in your car because of its great location.

What makes this house unique

Shopping at the local Von's Supermarket or Rite-Aid Drug Store are a short walk from our beach house's front door. Access to local shopping at clothing boutiques, antique stores, salons and surf shops are all within 3 blocks of our location. Over 15 restaurants offering a variety of California cuisine can be reached on foot within minutes.

Great Time in Carpinteria

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed in Carpinteria many times throughout the years. This was the nicest, most well maintained home we've ever stayed in. Everything you need is available at the home. Just show up with you luggage. The location is perfect.

Really, really nice!

  • 5 of 5
This home was absolutely perfect for a spring break getaway with my wife and 3 teenage sons. Absolutely immaculate. Everything in like-new condition. Really well-equipped. The fenced backyard is a fantastic bonus...plenty of space to hang-out outside at the end of a long day. Beautiful landscaping and plenty of seating.

Since we had to fly to CA, we appreciated the bikes, beach chairs, boogie boards, and other beach gear provided.

Great location...close to everything. We had a fantastic time. The owners were very responsive to all of our questions. Can't recommend this enough!

Carpinteria at its best!

  • 5 of 5
Our family has been coming to Carpinteria for years, but this was our first time staying in the Barkers' beach house. It was everything we hoped and much, much more! The home is beautifully decorated and very cheerful with lots of windows. It was immaculate and well organized. We really appreciated not having to bring our own linens. There is a great supply of beach chairs and sand toys. We found the location perfect for walking with our two small children to Tomol Park, the beach, stores, the Farmers Market on Thursday, and favorite restaurants like The Spot, The Palms, Sly's, Tony's and Jack's Bistro. When we wanted to hop in the car, more shopping and restaurants in Montecito and Santa Barbara were just a short drive away. Since we usually stay in a condo, we especially appreciated having the well landscaped back yard for the kids to play in. The owners were extremely helpful and easy to work with. The beds are comfortable and it's quiet at night. Needless to say, after a week filled with sunshine and fun, we didn't want to leave. We couldn't have been more pleased with this adorable house and have already booked our next visit.

Just the Best, Really Can't Recommend Highly Enough!

Just the Best, Really Can't Recommend Highly Enough!
  • 5 of 5
I'm only hesitant to give this adorable, comfortable and spotlessly clean beach house the highest ranking and review possible, because I don't want others to find out about the best kept secret in town! This is our second visit to the Barker beach house, and we have already booked our visit for next year. The owners could not be more helpful, thoughtful and in general, just great. The home has every single thing you could think of to make it feel like yours for a blissful week near our most favorite beach on the Central Coast. Inside and out it really is a little piece of heaven. Perfect for kids (the yard in completely enclosed and there are plenty of beach toys, corn hole, outdoor shower, etc.) and multiple families or groups of friends. For a sweet little beach cottage, it has plenty of room and plenty to do within walking distance. We love it here, can't wait to come back and wouldn't hesitate to suggest it to our family and friends. Thanks again, Barker family for sharing your home-away-from-home.

Great Location, nice decor and recent upgrades, organized owners

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family of 12 (ages 3 to 50) stayed for a week using the front house and the back studio. A very welcoming feel and nicely appointed furnishings. The kitchen had all we needed, and it was labeled so could put things backin the right place. Tthe owners had helpful notes on where to eat and what to do as well as helpful notes (and photos) about the "extras" in the house. These included high chair and extra chairs and table extensions. games, fire pit, outdoor shower, etc. Lots of great beach stuff and the bikes were perfect. Not right on the beach, but not a super far walk either. The delivery noise at Rite Aid stars early if you are in the front bedroom.

We would stay there again!
