About Ruta Aras

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

Why Ruta Aras chose Santa Barbara County

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

We loved this place!! You can hear the ocean at night and walk to the beach in a couple of minutes. We walked to dinner and drinks and loved the neighborhood. Very cute and we hope to make it every year!!

lovely beach house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying there for a family reunion. The weather was gorgeous and the house had all the amenities we needed--and lovely gardens in front and back. We only stayed a couple of days but hope to return and stay longer.

Excellent for family getaway for summer, long holiday weekends, holiday break.

  • 4 of 5

My husband, college age son and I just returned from a wonderful Christmas week at the house. Ruta was wonderful - when we arrived, holiday lights twinkled in the kitchen windows and a fully decorated Christmas tree greeted us in the living room. Very thoughtful, and much appreciated after a long drive from the SF Bay area. The weather was perfect. The house was clean and well maintained. Excellent customer service when we had a small issue with the heater - Ruta was very responsive, and the maintenance man was friendly when he dropped in to help. Kitchen was fully equipped to prepare festive holiday meals and more casual fare. We enjoyed the area with long walks on the beaches and shopping. Busy Bee Café our new favorite. Also, Handlebar for great artisanal coffee in Santa Barbara. Train noise was occasional, and took a little getting used to. Important to note that these tracks go through every beachside town along this area of Southern California coast - it is a fact of life for beachside living here, and it would be a thrill for younger visitors. I would recommend this home to friends looking for a comfortable, quiet getaway that is fully equipped for fun and family.

Would stay here again. There was hardly a thing we needed to buy in kitchen necessities. The location was great for beach and walking to town. Clean and well equipped for beach, towels, umbrella, etc. Roomy and comfortable.

The Beach House in Carpinteria

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at the Beach House with my friends and it was an amazing experience for all of us. The house is adorable and plenty of room for everyone. It's location is perfect to. Near the beach and the town. Easy walking. There are plenty of bikes and places to bike ride to.. My favorite part of the house is The Sugar Shack. They are historical rooms downstairs. All the bedrooms in the house are decorated in a beautiful fashion and have comfy beds.

Weekend getaway with the ladies - came in for the Avocado Festival. This was the perfect house! We parked our cars and walked everywhere - close to main street and the beach! The bikes were a pleasant surprise as well.
