About Bill Barker
I am a retired dentist that is married to my wife, Denise, for over 30 years. We have loved coming to Carpinteria for the span of our marriage and the upbringing of our 3 children. We recently purchased this beach house and renovated it and we are excited to share it with you to enjoy Carpinteria and associated areas as we have.
Bill Barker purchased this House in 2008
Why Bill Barker chose Carpinteria
I've been vacationing in Carpinteria since the early 1970's. I fell in love with this town as a teenager and I have been coming back ever since. My family and I vacationed every summer here in the 1980's and we purchased our first vacation property in the mid 1990's. Since then we travel to Carpinteria from the central valley of California as often as we can. We purchased this beach house in August of 2008 and spent a year renovating it. We think it is a fantastic property strategically located in Carpinteria like few other summer rental properties. You rarely have to get in your car because of its great location.

Amazing well appointed property spotless and full of bonus amenities, not the least of which is the incredible location.
Bill is very nice and full of recommendations for the stay. Thanks again!
House was clean, comfortable and had all we needed. Great location, bikes were a blast to use. Can walk everywhere. I’ll return!
Family friendly and all the comforts
We found the Barker beach house and cottage a wonderful place to be with our extended family. Every amenity was there to ensure a pleasant stay from game, bikes, and beach equipment to wonderfully outfitted kitchen and comfortable beds. The location close to shops and a short walk to one of the best beaches in California made it a perfect home in which to spend a week with our family. We sure hope to come back another year!
Best vacation home ever!
Meticulously clean and the owners are wonderful! Best rental experience every time I stay. They have everything you'll need. It's like being at home, but on vacation! Can't say enough nice things!
Thanks for your great review! We hope you had a safe trip home.
Bill & Denise
The Barker’s Beach House is a clean, green, and well-equipped dream in a super quiet neighborhood. The 101 is close but out of earshot, and Amtrak is an easy walk. Loved walking to the state park and the local flavor. Only complaint is it’s less than a block from Rori’s Gourmet Ice Cream- great stuff. We should go back!
We really appreciated your kind words about our Beach House! Hope to see you some time in the near future!
Great Location, beautiful home.
We enjoyed the home very much during our stay. It is well located near amenities and not far from the beach. The home is efficient and includes many extras that make it a special place to have a beach vacation.
Thanks for your nice review. We hope you had an enjoyable time!
