About Property Manager
We live in Santa Barbara, and love the beautiful climate and outdoors we are fortunate to enjoy. We moved here from the Boston area, so it's especially nice in the winter. We have 3 boys, a youngest daughter, and all of us love coming to Carpinteria and going to the beach when we get down to our condo!
Property Manager purchased this Condo in 2003
Why Property Manager chose Carpinteria
We loved the town of Carpinteria at first sight. It has a small town, community feeling, and reminded us a little of New England. We enjoy the tall palms lining the streets, expansive beaches, local shops of all kinds, warm breezes, and relaxed and friendly people. We live up in 101 in Santa Barbara but come to Carpinteria regularly because we enjoy it. There are many places to explore: wetland preserve, seal rookery, enormous greenhouses (see the orchids). The foothills are also fun to explore.
What makes this Condo unique
Our condo is in a small complex, La Cabana, across the street from Carpinteria Beach. Most of the condos are owner occupied, so it does not feel like the usual vacation resort. We overlook the courtyard from our second floor unit. We can go out the door in the morning, and walk on the beach in the early light or go for a swim. A short walk away is the Spot, a great local hamburger place, and in the other direction is the wetland marsh preserve. From our unit you can hear the ocean and feel the onshore breeze.

Perfect spot in a wonderful place
This apartment was very well taken care of and stocked with everything you could ever need to enjoy your time at the beach. Being right across the street from the beach and having a heated pool made it even more perfect. Top marks on everything! The only complaint is that both beds were very firm, so bring a pillow topper if you like a softer mattress. Would come back again for sure!
Much needed retreat from the city. Really enjoyed our stay
Nice property near a great beach
One block away from a beach that's perfect for body boarding. Easy walk to cute downtown Carpinteria and a real grocery store. Nice kitchen and comfortable beds.
great location, cozy property
Overall good experience. However, the management company didn't change to the door code for us so that we couldn't get in when we arrived. It took us about 15 minutes to get response from the manager. The toilet seat is kind of old, would be better to replace with a brand new one for small expense. The shower hot and cold water couldn't remain the same temerature. Got shocked when it suddenly turned cold or hot.
Great Location and Space
My family had a great time at this property! The beach was so close that when my 9 and 11 year old wanted to go back to the property they could walk by themselves. It is literally just across the street. It is also close to restaurants so we were able to walk as a family to go out to dinner. It was also ideal to rollerblade and I brought my longboard to skate around town with.
It was an ideal fit for my family of five and I would definitely come back again. The manager was great about communicating and making sure we had everything we needed!
Wonderful apartment and so convenient to the beach!
There are extensive bike trails, wonderful wine tasting tours, spa and massage facilities nearby, annual festivals, art gallery, and much more.
