About The Owner

After a refreshing walk along the bluffs, we're relaxing with Jelly Bowl Beach in the background.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Santa Barbara County

It is so easy to transform into a beach vacation frame of mind in this charming, low key, friendly beach community.

What makes this house unique

We love parking the car, and leaving it there for our entire stay in Carpinteria.

our second home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two months in this amazing house in fall 2015 with our two dogs and felt like 20 year olds again. Every morning and afternoon we walked to the beach, spent evenings watching sunsets, rode the beach cruisers into town for dinners and essentially soaked up every minute of our time there. My wife found the kitchen to be the best she has ever used and we entertained visitors regularly. Even our dogs were happier in this house than they are at home! We have already rented the house again for 5 weeks next year.

Fresh air, waves crashing, room for kids to chill and within walking or biking distance to everything---THAT makes for a perfect vacation getaway. We've rented homes in Idaho and Wyoming in recent years and this Southern California home is heaven. All the amenities you need (coffee pot, iron, towels, dishes, fire pit, lounge chairs, patio set, beach chairs, bikes, kayaks---everything). And a pool table! Space for adults to gather and kids to watch tv late at night. Carpenteria main city beach is idyllic with friendly people, actual or window shopping, ice cream and coffee shops, brewery. Small town charm, but a Starbucks if you need it! The home is clean, spacious, safe and in a pleasant area within walking distance to beach. We loaded up early and found a spot at main beach for the day. We planned to load the car, unload and drive back to the house to drop the car off for the day but even at 9 am we found prime parking at the beach open. If you want to escape the stress and chaos of life or the city, this is the house. You are secluded but a minute from town. Views of beach over backyard bluff are gorgeous and the waves soothe the soul. We plan to go again (live in northern cal) and hope this house is available!

Most amazing place we have ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in July 2014. This home is located within steps of the ocean, and a short walk or bike ride to great dining and shopping. It sits in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood with an abundance of old shade trees. The home is great for large families and offers a very cool old bunk bed for the kids, oh and one of the greatest showers you will ever use. There’s a full size pool table in the game room, music everywhere and a beautiful gourmet kitchen that opens up to the best part of this house….the backyard. The most beautiful and spacious back yard we have ever seen. Unobstructed panoramic mountain and ocean views from every angle. It’s like your own personal botanical garden. Tons of room for backyard fun too. Toss the football or Frisbee and play a great game of hide n seek with the kids. There’s also a giant fire pit area that inspires star gazing and s’mores. Complete privacy. This home also provides plenty of bikes. Carpinteria is a bike friendly town, and that is the preferred mode of transportation. Plenty of parking at the house and the house comes equipped with everything you need (like washer and dryer, hair dryer, coffee maker, etc). Santa Barbara is just a quick drive away with so many options of things to do up in Northern California and it is so beautiful. We are definitely coming back.

Nowhere else I rather be!

  • 5 of 5

I think the title says it all! This is a very special location in an idyllic California beach town. We especially loved the backyard with its amazing views, big lawn for the kids to play on, and its tranquil settling. Madeline and Greg, thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us! We hope to stay here again!

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Greg and Madeline's beach house was a great getaway that we thoroughly enjoyed. The accommodations where great the home has plenty of room for a small group to a large family. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to entertain yourself.

Outside you will find the deck/lawn area spacious and everything you need for your use. We loved watching the sunsets and waking up to the sounds of the ocean. Great place to vacation and can't wait to do it again. Carp is a great beach town full of fun things to do. Laid back and very relaxing.

Hard to beat

  • 5 of 5

Just concluding our stay in wonderful little Carpinteria. We have enjoyed it so much. Greg and Madeline have a fantastic place that made us feel right at home. Large kitchen with everything you need to do your own cooking. The outside living space is huge with views of both mountains and ocean (sunsets). We didn't use it, but there's a fire pit and plenty of wood to enjoy an evening outdoors (a little cool yet for us). The deck is large-some days it was nice to be lazy and just to hangout here-and the furniture is easy to move from sun to shade as the day heats up. The king bed in the master bedroom was firm and easy to fall asleep in. The home is within walking distance to the beach, seal sanctuary, and downtown Carpinteria. The beach offers more than a mile of walking in either direction with starfish and anemones in the tide pools, and sand dollars and shells to watch for. It is centralized for driving to hiking trails near Santa Barbara and Ojai, and only a 15 minute drive to the Ventura-Ojai bike trail. I think it's the nicest place one could find for a winter getaway in Carpinteria. When we return it will be our first choice.
