COZY RETREAT IN CARPINTERIA...MINUTES WALK TO TOWN & BEACH

Carpinteria Condo Rental Photos and Description

Monthly condo rental, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Monthly rentals, preferred.

No pets.

Our apologies but families with children under 12 need not apply.

When you first walk into the 'inner sanctum' of the Village Gardens condos, you can't help but to feel like you've come across something special.

The landscaping of the inner gardens and 'meadow' is meticulous and inviting. One of Carp's best kept secrets, the garden of Village Gardens welcomes you as you arrive.

Jasmine blooms scent the path from the car-park to the front door.

The bamboo floors and light walls enhance the bright sunlight that comes in through the windows overlooking the gardens. Tons of room for up to a group of four to sit and hang out in the living room and at the dining room table. Guests can easily be accommodated, too.

Smart TV and high-speed internet, along with a 46' flat screen television are all part of the package, of course. Moving out the screened and sliding doors to the patio, your stomach may begin to growl as you anticipate the taste of the fresh vegetables growing there. Two varieties of lettuce, Japanese cucumbers, tomatoes, and herbs. The chaise lounge back here is so comfortable you may never leave this spot your whole stay in town.

Back inside and upstairs, there are two bedrooms, two full baths, and laundry. The master bedroom has a comfy queen-sized bed and fresh, cotton linens. With the window open, the cool evening breezes are welcome after a warm summer day at the beach. And down the hall, the second bedroom can be set up for two twin beds or one huge, comfortable King bed. Let us know which you'd prefer.

The beach...it's just a 10 minute walk through the center of town. Pick up a coffee at the Coffee Bean and then continue your stroll down LINDEN AVE to the 'world's safest beach.' That's seriously what they call it.

It is a stunning beach. Our shoreline is perfect for surfing, kayaking, and stand-up paddling along the Carpinteria coast. During the summer, rentals for all of this are available on the beach. The rest of the year, local surf shops can hook you up with everything you need. Is there a fisherman in your group? The kelp forest reefs off the coast are wild waters with bottlenose dolphins, sea lions, harbor seals, and plenty of fish. All accessible by kayak. SCUBA diver? Bring your gear, rent a tank and paddle a kayak right to the kelp forest where Leopard Sharks and White Sea Bass congregate. I kid you not.

Restaurants in Carpinteria...there is some great food in Carp!

Immediate suggestions that come to mind... Corktree Cellar; Sly's; Crushcakes; Siam Elephant Thai; The Spot; & Zookers.

I'll be sure to give you more 'local favorites' to check out in the Information sheet I leave for guests.

Carpinteria is 15 minutes from Santa Barbara--definitely worth a visit. Spend the day at the wineries of Los Olivos; go to the Sea Center at Stearn's Wharf; sail out to the Channel Islands to see blue whales, bottlenose dolphins, and sea lions.

This is a great location in a fun city.

Monthly rentals, preferred.

Our apologies but families with children under 12 need not apply.

About The Owner

I've been living in Carpinteria for the past 15 years and love it. Wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

Except maybe New Zealand.

Or Fiji. :)

I digress.

I work on ocean documentary films and travel for months at a time. But for the next 12 months, I'm writing a novel. While you enjoy my home, I'm traveling and writing my book.

Good trade.

Coming home to Carpinteria ('Carp' as locals call it) is fantastic. My friend calls it 'the island oasis in a sea of insanity.' You'll see. It's hard to resist its charm.

Please enjoy.

Mahalo.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1999

Why The Owner chose Carpinteria

Carpinteria feels like I imagine all of California once did. A simpler, slower time.

One thing Carpinteria is not...it is not a big late night partying city. Most of the city is pretty buttoned up for the night (as in closed) by 10pm. There are a few great places to have a drink later into the evening, but if it's night life you are looking for, Santa Barbara is just 15 minutes north and has quite the scene.

What makes this condo unique

Tranquility. Good night sleep. Fresh veggies from the garden (seasonal). Relaxation.

Great Vacation Rental!!!

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks in this lovely condo and enjoyed every minute. It was very clean, quiet, and walking distance to everything in Carp. The extra bonus, 15 minutes to Santa Barbara. The owner could not hsve been nicer. I was really impressed with everything and hope to be back next year.

Charming condo, easily walkable to everything

  • 4 of 5
We LOVED being able to walk to everything.

The place was bright and open, and the back patio had a gorgeous succulent garden and comfy seating. The patio was like something from a magazine (or Pinterest).

The place was decorated with beautiful art and had tons of interesting books on the shelves. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of pillows.

The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was that it would have been nice if it had a crib and a high chair,.although of course this doesn't matter if you are not traveling with a baby.

The owner gave us tons of info on things to do around town and very detailed instructions on everything from how to operate the heat to how to work the coffee pot.

We would definitely stay here again. Thanks!!!

Great Condo and location

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a great holiday in Carpinteria. The condo was furnished exactly as advertized. The owner was very helpful e.g configured the beds to our families sleeping requirements. The location was an easy walk to the store and the beach. We have stayed in the Santa Barbara area before but found Carpinteria to be the best family location.

Perfect private spot fro beach lovers

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for about 10 days and it was wonderful. Carpenteria was the perfect little beach town. Quiet enough not to drive you crazy with still plenty of stuff to do. The drive into Santa Barbara was short and easy and has all the action that you may need. The condo was ideal for our family. We have a 4 and 3 year old and the layout, as well as the tranquil environment was perfect. The property was clean and fresh and the owner went out of his way to make our vacation a special one. The feeling was very safe and welcoming and the shared courtyard, as well as the private one, were beautiful. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and we are already planning our next visit. Great beaches, great biking, great town, great property...enough said.
