Our house is on one of the most beautiful coves of beach anywhere. This beach is a secret gem and you may often find that you are the only person on the sand. Our house is only a fifteen minute drive from lovely downtown Santa Barbara and 1 1/2 hours away from west Los Angeles. You can enjoy watching the dolphins swim by as you eat at the kitchen table or sit on the front deck. You can try out our kayaks for a closer look in the sheltered bay. Come relax and enjoy. We are located between Carpinteria--a small, friendly beach town, and Montecito--a community with beautiful hillside canyons and spectacular estates. Both cities have excellent restaurants, wonderful farmers' markets, antique shopping, etc. The Santa Barbara wine country is not far. Nearby to the north and east of us, the Los Padres National Forest, offers thousands of square miles of back country opportunities. Nearby are multiple opportunities for outdoor activities or fine dining and entertainment.

We loved our stay at your wonderful beach house!!! Your home is situated on what must be the most exclusive beach in Southern California... Your home is very nice and cozy and had everything our family needed. But, the best part was the spectacular views from all the rooms of the ever changing ocean, your wonderful cove, the Channel islands across the channel and Santa Barbara twinkling in the distance. And, seeing one of your movie star neighbors on the beach was so unexpected. You made everything so easy for us to have the time of our lives. We will cherish the memory forever.
We are three siblings who have enjoyed this location since the early 1970's. Our children and now their children have grown up loving this special place.
Our house was built in 1971 by our parents, Mel and Gloria Nimmer. At that time, this stretch of beach had few houses and we have many happy memories of frog songs and empty lots.
Our house has boogie boards, sand toys, 2 kayaks and 4 bikes available for your use. A quiet surf break, Serena Point, is at the tip of our cove where you'll also enjoy tide pooling.
